Welcome back to ZAN's Corner.
As we all saw, last week brought forth the first "Title Update" to Madden 18. This saw a high responsiveness from deep zones on both posts and corner routes. As a result, most players are now sitting back on defense in Cover 4 to stop the run and rushing 3-4 players with 7 or 8 in coverage, making it tough to move the ball.
This tip breaks down a very nice route combination from the Tight Slot Open formation found in MIA/OAK/Pass Balanced playbooks, and I take it a step further to show off the "Pin" concept and how it's designed to beat Cover 4 in real life.
As always, leave any questions or comments below and I'll try to answer as many as I can!
