Super scary! I hate the zone prevent against elite QB's. I'm fine with it against the bottom two thirds of the NFL, but Brady/Manning/Manning/Brees/Rodgers? No thanks.
That was the worst part, it was like Manusky with his "Prevent.....you from winning" defense all over again. Man on man has been working well all game, let's switch it up, go to a 3 man rush and give Brady all day back there to make passes. That really got them going and once they got the momentum...well...all I can say is THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU LaMichael James.
They should have kept attacking, kept getting in Brady's face, by switching to the zone, they allowed for long drives, thereby wearing out the defense and letting New England get as close as they did.
You can put 10 defensive backs out there against a QB like Brady, and if you give him plenty of time to pick his target, he'll beat you over and over.
