ps2: highlight defender you want to use to double; triangle; button corresponding to receiver you want to double, right on d-pad.

Let me add that this is very useful against Human competition.
Most of the times I crowd the box making it apparent that I'm about to blitz, and then soon as the play starts, my defense drops back into a Cover 4. Its great for confusion, yet if you actually blitz, it forces a lot of bad passes.

I've noticed that they've toned down the effectiveness of this tactic in Madden 06. Last year you could do this without penalty because the db's got back so fast. This year I've been burned several times by my buddies when doing this because my guys didn't seem to react to the pass as quickly as in '05. It's still great against the inside run, but less so against outside runs and passes.

Thats why I mix in the blitz with the tactic every now and then. Especially on 3rd Down.....if I blitz on the previous 3rd Down and then turn around and bring 'em up close yet drop back in coverage on the next 3rd Down, it makes the user think he has to get rid of the ball quicker than he really has to.

To keep from leaving my corner on an island, I'll take one of the safeties and double the user's best WR, and shade my CB inside.

For those that dont know, you can also shade inside or outside the receiver with the corner. Watch the Def video, lots of good stuff.
