Defensive play calling

Alright I play my buddies in this game a lot and I wanted some defensive play calling tips. IS there anything better than a 2-man D?

If I call zone play I tend to get burnt so I usually just stick with 2-man the entire game and mod it by using double coverage or sending a linebacker or something. I usually get burend when my friends call corner routes with there TE's. What zone play stops corner routes?

Also I usually hold the "R" trigger and move my defenders to the right to watch the sidelines. It shuts it down in man coverage but I need it to work in zone coverage.

Re: Defensive play calling

That depends. Do you take manual control of the DB responsible to cover or help cover that corner route?

Re: Defensive play calling

Is he throwing a high lob, low lob, or bullet pass?

If it is a lob, manually controll your corner and follow the tight end. Time the ball's trajectory so you can jump up to deflect. To be better at this, go into practice mode with two controllers (or use Choose Sides, whatever you prefer.) Do the play he does with the Tight End, throw the ball- then grab your controller to immediately take control of the defensive back and try stopping that play - keep doing it till you perfect it. That is how I became so good at defense.

Re: Defensive play calling

Well I play as the Browns and I use the Nickel a lot and blitz Wimbly off the edge and watch for the run and scramble with him. Sometimes I'll even fake the blitz and turn and make the pick if his left WR is doing an inside slant route!

The problem is annoying corner routes with TE's like Todd Heap. It seems like if I call anything other than 2 man I get burned. Is cover 3 or any of those other plays any good?
