Madden 09: Reading Defensive Coverages

If you want to improve your passing game, then you have to properly read defensive coverages. So we will teach you how to figure out if the defense is running man or zone coverage, and also how to tell the difference between specific zone coverages. Best of all, we will teach you how to do this before you even snap the ball.

This tip can be applied to any playbook and basically any play. In order to first tell if the defense is in man or zone, you will need to be in a spread (ex: Gun 4 WR) and a compressed (ex: Gun Snugs) formation in your playbook. I like to have one of each in my audibles because it makes for easy access at all times.

Good work. I like to simply motion my WR to see if the CB follows to determine man or not.

Re: Madden 09: Reading Defensive Coverages

this is why we finally will see the return of Man lock from legacy gen madden games. Should have never left the game, and should have been in 09 for sure...

Man lock will negate this otherwise obvious article.

Aside from graphics, the last generation of madden games really had a LOT of game play sim-style innovations that are needed to play human vs human.

Oh how i miss man lock (madden 01 was when it was first implemented)
it could be a good combo if used with man allign (introduced in madden 05-07 some where in those years)

Re: Madden 09: Reading Defensive Coverages

man its easy to read what coverage the D is in..

safeties go wide, cover 2 man or zone, and even then you know the difference ( against zone, attack the mid, man, lol anything)

1 safety goes high and the other low, some type of cover 3.
(curls or corners, posts if your quick)

all DBS go back, cover 4
(underneath routes, again curls or crosses and slants)

always read the safeties first, then the linebackers. you can determine what theyre in in a second flat

The last Xbox version might have been the best. While everyone ran out to buy the first madden on 360 the xbox was running the best madden I ever played.

It's a shame that they have been releasing this game for 3 years on 360 and it still has not added certain things from Madden 07.

How about adding the mercy rule to online play. SO if a person quits you can get the score to a certain point in the second half and give the AI mercy.

I want to play humans. Not run up the score on the AI when a person quits.
