Madden 13 Defensive Tips: Cover 2 Man


  1. Hot route your MLB to blitz and place him over the left tackle
  2. (Optional) Hot route the DT to a yellow zone and the LE to a purple zone Pro Tip: This play works best if you have a good and decently fast right end.

    1. You have 2 deep safeties that you can hot route into man coverage and take that away very easily. It is just your preferences whether you want to do that and have 1 deep safety or not do it and have 2 deep.

    2. Dude,’tlike.the tips get off

    1. You can slide protect to the left, or block a tight end or running back to stop the blitz

  1. I love this d. i mix it in with the 3-4 to stop the run. i find some people can pass against the cover 2 man and some can pass against the cover 3 but if you mix it in it is an amazing A-gap blitz. Only work with a fast RE. it is a huge part of my d-cheme and i now have 855 ranked pts. Beauty tip.
