SHEESH!!! If Rivera is back (which I hope he is) they better damn well do something about defense late in games.

If you are actually in a prevent defense you shouldn't give up a 30+ yard TD pass. That isn't coaching that is on the players.

It's not like we were facing Culter. Brees was going to put some numbers on us anyway in the final minutes of the quarter. He's just that good, unfortunately.

The best they could do is keep everything in front of them and let Brees dink and dunk...thus eat up clock in the process. Problem was, as already mentioned, the players couldn't contain and let up more than was allowed.

That screen pass TD was utter BS, though. Fuggin' Saints holding up a storm let Sproles breeze past our defense.

Kuechly ran halfway across the field while being held nearly the entire time and still almost made the play on that screen pass.

Almost? So is this considered a moral loss?

There have been a couple of occasions this year when prevent was the right call, including today, but for whatever reason, we just suck at it. Given that all it has accomplished is letting the other team score quickly, it probably should be removed from our defensive repertoire.
