We're not doing so well protecting the pass, if you have noticed, most of the passes completed/almost completed were wide open recievers, we need to fix that going into the 2nd half.
I GET IT
Denard is 8/9 and the one incompletion was a throw away. Not sure what else you want..
He is talking about our defense and their coverage on UConn's receivers.
That would be covering or defending the pass game. Not protecting it.
