Good Stuff ^^^
Whenever I run the 3-3-5, my main plays for coverage have been the 2Deepman Under & Cover1 plays. When I run the 2DeepMan Under play, I usually always spread both my safeties zones so they cover their deep halves of the field better by pressing Triangle + UP on the R3 stick. Then I usually control the MLB and try to cover the middle of the field for INTs/double up on someone like the TE or I'll manually blitz him sometimes or fake the blitz and drop back just to keep the offense guessing. You can do plenty with that MLB. But the Cover1 play is really nice though because everyone is in man coverage, except the 2 OLBs & FS. The 2OLBs in hook zones are what really make this play because they provide deception as the offense doesn't know whether they will dropback or blitz or if one will dropback and the other blitz and vice versa. With the quick playmaker blitz feature for the OLBs, you can really keep the offense guessing. Those 2 OLBs can really help take away the middle of the field also when they do dropback and it can look very confusing. You can playmaker those OLBs to purple zones too if you wish to mix it up or if your getting beat by corner routes. You can get coverage sacks out of this play also, if the offense hotroutes or uses plays with slants since he might think your blitzing those 2OLBs, but little does he know their dropping back into the passing lanes of slants and such routes. Best to control the FS of course with this play since he's the only Deep zone.
Other than that, when I do use pure zones from 3-3-5, I'm usually blitzing atleast 5 and I usually always freeeze my defense. Also, lately when I've been running the Enage8 play, I quick playmaker all my LBs to dropback into hook zones (Yellow), playmaker the MLB to man up the HB if I feel he might throw to the flats to him, then I bring my SS down a bit closer to the LOS (but don't let him creep down since that will tip your coverage) and then I take control of the FS. With this setup it's a 5 man rush with the Nickelback and SS coming on outside blitzes. This setup can look confusing IMO and even better vs. spread set. Lots of variations of blitzes and coverages you can do with this Engage8 play.
