Does anyone have any defensive game plans that they would be willing to share? Can't seem to get a hang of that side of the ball and Rex doesn't exact do the best job.

For me, it's really based on the upcoming opponent...meaning that they don't last long enough to save.

I will say a few of my keys here...
1- look at the scouting report of the opponent...the first part I notice...that determines much of the defensive set I go with that the scramble frequency of the opposing QB. If he is an avid scrambler, then at least 9 of my defensive plays will be plays with a spy.

2- I look at the WRs...if they have a tendency to target more than 1 on deep throws, I will only use 1 or 2 of the "cover-1/press-1" defenses, for use down close to my own GL on defense where I don't have to think of deep passes.

3-I will watch a bit of their recent game, at least...with an eye to how well they pick up blitzers. If blitzing them has success, then I will use blitz on about half my defense plays..if it usually doesn't work, then I won't abandon it, but will only incorporate maybe 2 plays..both with multiple blitzers.

4-Cover-3 and cover-4 both have some issues with trips-sets...if they use a lot of tris, I will either not use cover-3/4 or only use 1, as my "late game prevent D"
