You can now set the depth that your underneath zone defenders will drop to in your pre-plan adjustments menu. If you know an exact route combination is coming, you now have the tools to stop it.

In Madden 20, every good defensive setup ended in using QB Contain. EA Sports has made some adjustments to the pass rush to bring better balance to the game.

You will now have to decide whether to contain a mobile QB or bring a faster blitz. There will also be better defensive pursuit angles to stop the running game in Madden21 so hopefully the dive/stretch offense that was so prevent in Madden 20 won’t be nearly as effective.

There are some situations where it can work, especially if you are adamant it will be a running play, but a good opponent will audible at the line to take advantage of your defense. As a general rule, if there are 3 or more Was then select a Nickel, Dime or Dollar defense.

Man defense has most of your defenders accountable for a particular player on the opposition. The downside is that if a player loses the battle, it can often give up bigger gains.

Zone gives the defenders areas of responsibility to cover. This means that even when catches are made they can be contained quicker than there will always be some defenders near.

As the WR crosses zones there are gaps where they will be free, this is what the opposition is aiming to do. Most players in Madden like to stick to zone for the majority as it's much more effective, especially Cover 3.

There were some question marks over whether the new pass rush system would change the recommended approach to ushering in Madden21. This allows the AI to handle the pass rush, but they will be more effective when you are controlling the coverage and playing tighter.

If you shade down using on RS, the defenders will come down to meet them and force a contested catch on a drag. Be aware this will leave holes in your defense, but if an opponent is spamming someone this makes it difficult for them.

Executing the right chain of movements, and joking your opponent at a mental level will allow you to counter back effectively and have an unbreakable defense in Madden NFL 21. Putting pressure on the enemy team in Madden games is relatively easy with good players by your side.

Hit A/Cross which will confirm that you want to change the defender’s assignment and bring up the defensive adjustments screen. Feel free to change different players’ adjustments before snapping the ball.

You now have a Pass Rush Budget, and Blocker, Memory and Resistance Bars. If your Pass Rush Meter goes empty, you will be unable to make any other moves.

Resistance bars give an indication of how well the player can defend an attack from either side. Another example would be to set Dion Jones to mirror the mobile quarterback’s movements.

If they make any sort of play, Dion can stop them immediately by tackling them. When Quarterback breaks the pocket, you need to essentially make sure you have an adequate player with good enough speed to stop him.

Break the offense with huddle and press Y/Triangle to bring up your defensive adjustments. Guessing wrong is going to cost you a lot, and you will end up giving large gains, use it only if you are confident with what’s going on in your opponent’s head.

Protect the Sticks This adjustment will tell all your defenders to drop back to around the first down marker and tell them to keep everything in front of them. Judging by the early screenshots, both sides of the defense will play the field at the same depth.

This will create a far more challenging read for the offensive player and stop people from using the defensive reaction on one side of the field to make the read for a flooded zone on the other side of the field (which would defeat the intended reason of having the new zone drop mechanics in the first place).

Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts I figured if I set it at 0 my DBS would play closer to LOS since it goes to 0-30 yards but instead every time it feels like all my DBS just gravitate towards the sideline and the middle is always insanely open.

They kind of stand there and watch them only reacting when the pass is thrown. Quote: Originally Posted by oneamongthefence First issue is that coverage is still too loose.

They kind of stand there and watch them only reacting when the pass is thrown. I wonder if I manually buffed a lot of LB zone coverage ratings if that’d help any.

It would just modify how fast a linebacker breaks once a ball is thrown. Oftentimes you can throw a ball right a linebacker with a receiver behind him, and he doesn't react at all.

DBS continue to drop when no one is in their area. They're fanning out and dropping super deep leaving gaping holes in the middle.

Linebackers have very poor awareness on their zone drops. Just dropping to a spot and ignoring receivers in their zone.
