OS Poll: Do you prefer Man or Zone Defense?



4-3 or 3-4? Aggressive or conservative? Man or zone?

Your defensive philosophy is more than just a choice on your preferred coverage, but it does form the basis for everything else. Great defenses have accompanied both philosophies, and neither choice is particularly wrong. In fact, the choice of preferred defensive style is likely more subjective than anything else in real football. But in Madden, there are real strength's and weaknesses to both styles, and choosing which you prefer is a big choice and impacts how you call plays. So which do you prefer? Do you prefer man or zone defense?

zone defense. it's the best. you can play the db's back and blitz up front. a little man don't hurt either. but i am a zone blitz type of guy with some man.

Depends on the down, yardage, and field position. I like man if I got great CBs. Zone if in red zone. Blitz on 3rd and long so the QB won't have time to make play but I make my ends do QB zone just in case the screen is an option

agree with this, except I dont blitz on 3rd and long if the qb is in a shotgun formation with a rb/fb there for extra blocking purposes.

Depends if I want to win. The guys I play against can pick apart a zone any day. We have to play mostly man to stop anyone. If EA did a better job with zone it could work better. Cover-2 is like an invitation to give up a TD.

Re: OS Poll: Do you prefer Man or Zone Defense?

It depends on the year in question. Every year when they improve one area, another suffers or gets worse. They beefed up man coverage in 13, but zone is almost useless...In 12 it was a mixed bag, and in 11 man was useless... I'm usually the type of defensive player that plays down and distance first, formation and personnel second but that doesn't usually translate to Madden ball.

I usually play a lot of zone with some man coverage mixed in. I also tend to blitz quite a bit on first down and sometimes second.

Zone has a better chance at intercepting the ball. Too many man beaters out there.

Really depends on the team I'm playing with and what suits my db's most. With my Bears it's mostly zone obviously but then with other teams it's mostly man. It would be nice if there were more variety in the types of man coverages in the game though. Whenever I play a team like the Lions who have a superstar reciever I stick to mostly 2 Man Under to get double coverage on deep balls.

I always run with a 4-3 defense and play a lot of Cover 2, so I guess zone.
