Prevent defense almost cost us again

It's because Rivera sucks as does the secondary that Hurney left us with. JR is the most clueless owner in the league if he seriously trots Hurney Jr. and Rivera back out there next season. Really hope our owner is that stupid.

Quick running backs and short screens are always the bane of prevent defenses. DBs aren't the best tacklers on the team and the prevent depends on speed (alot of DBs)

When the offense has time and field position, the prevent defense rarely works - barring a turnover.

That goes for almost any team.

The prevent is designed to prevent quick scores at the cost of field position, and as you said, hopefully generate a pick. Once the other team reaches the red zone, the field is compressed enough that you can run typical schemes.

It is also true that our DB's are experts in letting open field runners get by them.
