View Full Version : The perfect defensive play?
12-18-2006, 11:27 PM
I was in a good game with my friend over Xbox live with it tied 60-60 and he got the ball first in OT and 4 straight plays he got down field and scored the game-winning TD. They were all pass plays and he ran the hurry up offense. I change my defense with an audible but he still scored. I wanted to ask, what do you guys think is the best defensive play to stop the pass. Short or Long.

I tell everyone that there is no real best D on the Next Gen. All teams personell is different and do different things even on the same defensive call. What team are you using and I can see what I can find for you.

2 man under is probably the best overall play vs the pass

vs the hurry up I like to run strike 2 deep, but it doesn't cover the flats

I think that Cover 3 zone is the best play against the pass. It's the play I use as my base defense. I feel there are alot more options out of it with blitzes than the Cover 2 Man.

the mega super blitz of death...
look for nanos against each offensive formation...within an hour or so you should find sucess

in that situation, i'd probably choose the quarter formation's 2 man under with the one LB playing spy. Manually I'd play the LB and just have my d-line rush in, maybe they can come up with pressure. it works well for me because i know i will have any pass formation covered with corners, and depending on who my opponent has at QB is when i would determine what to do with the LB...whether it's playing the spy still or dropping into a roaming coverage. But, like Ron and LHS said...it's all based on your teams speed, awareness, fatigue, and all that jazz....however, i'd still recommend you try that play and see how it works for you if you're ever in that type situation again
