The fake safety blitz concept was made popular by a few members of the Madden-School.com forum back in Madden NFL 11 and it still works wonders in Madden 13. Today we will be showing you a way to get unblocked pressure off the edge while rushing only 5 defenders against 5 offensive lineman.
Formation: 3-4 Solid
Play: OLB Blitz
- Control your safety in the deep blue zone and hot route him to blitz
- (Optional) Press coverage
The key to making this play work is letting your safety (who you are controlling) take 2-3 steps toward the line of scrimmage before you take control of him and manually defend the middle of the field.
This play can also be used as a solid run defense so keep that in mind when calling 3-4 Solid OLB Blitz.
