I somewhat disagree with what Trotter said about Manusky potentially doing a better job than Fangio considering the offseason acquisitions i.e Rogers, Whitner, Smith ect. Manusky's defenses routinely gave up the big play, and I see that trend continuing in San Diego from what I've seen. This year the 49ers defense does not give up very many big plays. I don't see that as being all about personell. Scheme plays a role imo.
we don't go into prevent right after we get the lead
That's true. They play off a bit, but not the total prevent-a-win defense. I know nothing about this, but there must be degrees from just being careful to giving up pretty substantial yardage. With the super-accurate QBs that are around now, plus lots of great receivers, real prevents just are awful.
