In this Madden 13 Tip, Duke breaks down how to get intense outside pressure with only three rushers!
Play: Nickel Wide 9- Sugar 2 Disguise
Playbooks: ANY w/ Nickel Wide 9 (EX: CIN, DET, MIA, etc)
- Spread out the LB’ers
- Call BNR
- Crash the DL out
- Spy both right side DL
- Move the blitzing NB a yard to the left of the RDE and as far up on the LOS as possible
Ideally, you want your fastest back up DB at the blitzing NB spot.
This is the first legit three man outside heat of the year. This defense is very good and if someone wants to slide protect left, just leave your defensive lineman on the right blitzing. The coverage on this play is also very tricky. The Wide 9 has a ton of unique looks and this is just one of them. This formation will be heavily feature in the Defensive Game Planning 103 guide so be on the look out for it in the next week tops!
