In this entry, we will focus on the Cover 2 out of the 4-3. I don't care for how Madden does defensive line stunts, and recommend on each play you simply crash the line left or right, preferably to the side you expect a run, or if you happen to be blitzing either the Sam or Will, then to the side of the blitzing backer to help free up the DE on that side.
A simple cover 2 man. I typically don't use this play simply because I don't trust man coverage, and less so when I am not sending a blitz. I also don't typically blitz out of this, as that will leave someone open.
A Cover 2 Soft. A good play to help protect against mid range passes.
A good Blitz to mix in and keep the offense on it's toes. Flip it to send the Sam. Another option is to blitz the Mike and drop the Will into a yellow hook zone. If you do that, I suggest controlling the Will. The Sam and Mike blitzes are also not in the game, so you have to create them yourself [Sam Blitz by simply flipping the play]
Classic Cover 2 Hard. A good defense when you notice a lot of passes to the flats, or you are defending inside the red zone.
My favorite kind of blitz to send inside the red zone. Flip to send the Will.
The Mike blitz version of the above play.
That's it. Cover 2 man, soft, hard, and all 3 blitz combinations out of each.
