How to stop the quick slants

So this years madden, especially lately Iíve been getting killed on the quick slants from the cpu. Iíve tried what I thought works, especially man coverage I shade on the inside and play press but many times the wr still seems to get like a few yards separation and itís an easy pass/catch for the cpu.

Any tips what does work for it? Sucks giving up big plays if Iím calling the right plays but seems no matter what rating my guys are itís the same result

It is really hard with the CPU because they can see the whole field all the time. I usually run Tampa 2 and change the drop distance from my vert guys or put them on spys. I user the mike and try to get in front of whichever WR is open.

YMMV

I no longer try. If the cpu wants to run slants, they will run slants lol. I have Jaire Alexander and Kendall Fuller giving up slants like no tomorrow . 🤦🏾*♂️

Re: How to stop the quick slants

Also crazy that on those slants, you get penalized for calling ďinsideĒ leverage. If you donít make that adjustment itís not as big of gain, but heck if Iím running man and I call inside leverage itís a TD a lot of times. Kindve ridiculous to have that option, you call it right, but it penalizes you. Guess they wanted more people to run more zone this year (which I hate zone even as a fan of watching football)

The problem when I run zone is it usually helps stop the slant at first but then I get no pressure and eventually the slant guy will get opened anyways

I've just created ghost playbooks that keep the cpu from running slants 55 times a game. Also if you get superstar corners with the short ko ability they will force the computer wrs to consistently drop slant passes.
