Zone defense colors: What do they mean?

On defensive plays, I've noticed yellow, blue, and even pink zone bubbles. Do the differences mean anything?

Thanks!

Re: Zone defense colors: What do they mean?

This must be on 360 because, as far as I recall, there are only 2 colors on current gen. Yellow is a regular old zone and blue is a spy. The zone could be white but that's when the zoner is an IP. That's all I recall seeing in current gen but I've been wrong before.

Re: Zone defense colors: What do they mean?

In Madden, the colors correspond with the type of zone:
light blue = flat
purple = curl flat
yellow = hook
dark blue = deep zone

I'm don't know what the colors correspond to in NCAA, but I'll bet it's something similar.

Re: Zone defense colors: What do they mean?

They're the Madden zone colors. They don't really mean anything, I think they're just a way to tell the difference between them.

Dark Blue: Flats, screens, Outs,drag
Yellow: Curl, Outs, Ins, slants
Purple: Flag, Out and Up (don't know what it's officially called, we called it "squirril"), Deep Out
Light Blue: Post, Go/drive/run down the field, deep flag

Yes they do.
Blue = Deep/Flats
Pink = Medium
Yellow = Short

Know your opponents though. If you're facing an awesome wideout make sure you leave at least your best safty in a zone. If you're going against two good wides...sometimes leave two safeties in deep or two quick guys on Deep cover 2.

On defense, this is what I thought the colors meant (360 version):

Yellow circles: defensive players in zone defense and the size of the circles represented the area they cover.

Red circle: a player playing man to man

Blue circle: Defender acting as a spy

Grey arrows: shows who is blitzing.
