Prevent defense almost cost us again

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.

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.
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.
