Man be Zone.

Is it just me or is man-to-man not infinitely better than zone on defense. Iíve all but quit calling zone because it seems like itís just non-stop 8-10 yard completions.

It is the way zone coverage is programmed. Ever zone gets beat by deep crossing routes to the sideline, people are literally just building their schemes around that flaw

Re: Man be Zone.

Iím taking about playing against the CPU though. I give up big yardage every time in zone, first downs galore. In man, I play much better against the pass. Iíve all but completely abandoned zone calls.

Do you only use stock playcalls or are you hot routing? Most stock zones have gaping holes in them that can only be closed by changing player assignments.

I rarely change coverage in defense at the line.

I'd strongly suggest you learn to start using hot routes. If you are playing the AI, or are early in the game against a human (so no tendencies yet), start thinking about the most dangerous play you might face against a given formation and start thinking about how to take it away and what you need to change to make that happen.
