Pass Defense Madden 24 ***Surprise Inside***

Madden 24 Pass Defense:

Incase you and me haven’t met yet, you can call me Manu.

Growing up, my friends always called me “Manu Ginobili” (former NBA player) because they said I looked him haha and the name has stuck since then.

Now even though I didn’t become a pro basketball player…

I DID become a 3x Professional Madden Champion and served as a coach for over 230 beginners and intermediate players like you.

It’s nice meeting you though and we’ll talk more later after I give you what you came here for.

The 3 Step Guide For Defensive Tips Madden 24:

  1. Understand the pros/cons of man defense
  2. Understand the pros/cons of zone defense
  3. Combine the strengths of man AND zone defense into hybrid coverage

1. Pass Defense Tips From Man

The upside: Man defense always keeps a cornerback in the play vs. a specific route. 

Sometimes it’ll even randomly full on play that specific route.

Example – Assume the receiver and defensive back have equal ratings. If the receiver runs a crosser 100 times vs. man defense – the receiver will win about 80 times.

BUT if you keep playing the same defense, eventually your defensive back CAN make a play and cause a game-changing turnover. 

And on the plays where the receiver does win – the DB will be close-by for a tackle at least.

(Very important you keep this in mind for the breakthrough moment coming later)

Now the downside: Man defense is very inconsistent vs. sharp cutting routes like crossers (mentioned above), slants, drags, and corners.

Even if you shade correctly, such as shading inside vs. a slant, your defensive back can STILL get beat.

Due to the inconsistency of play from man defense – I completely avoid full-blown man defenses.

Now zone defense has even more unique strengths and weaknesses…

2. Pass Defense Tips From Zone

The upside: Zone defense and zone drops are GREAT for playing specific areas on the field.

If you know a deep crossing route is coming (crossers run ~30 yards) – you can set your zone drop flats to 30 in coaching adjustments.

The “30” means the flat zone will drop back 30 yards from the line of scrimmage. 

So the flat zone will drop back deep enough – matching the length of the crosser and your DB should be in good position to pick off any crosser then. 

But the downside…

There’s always a major hole in any zone defense. 

Even if you have 3 hook zones underneath to play a drag, there’ll be a small space where you can fit the drag in-between all the hook zones. 

So what can you do?

Now for the magic…

3. Madden 24 Hybrid Pass Defense Tips:

Hybrid defense is a mix of man AND zone</strong>. Each coverage shell has its unique weaknesses and strengths.

<p>So what if we created a scheme where we ONLY use the strengths from the different coverages and combined them?

If you only use Cover 2 zone, you will get RIPPED deep because Cover 2 has only two players dedicated to the deep portions.

Whereas if you only run man coverage everywhere, crossing routes will eat your sidelines alive.

But what if you implemented man coverage in your Cover 2 zone shell to protect the deep portions of the field?

Then you had cloud flats to protect the sideline around that man coverage. Remember, those sidelines were once the weakness of your man coverage.

What I did in the above picture below was man up the receiver who was the threat of beating the Cover 2 shell deep.

Then inside quartering the safety because the skinny post from the lone side wide receiver in Gun Bunch tears Cover 2 apart for a one play touchdown. 

Hopefully now your creative juices are flowing and you can see the endless possibilities with this concept…

Madden 24 Defense Tips

You and me (Manu) have a lot in common.

Let me share a quick backstory that’ll make your Madden life 10x easier moving forward.

Like you, 12 years ago I was searching around for some help on my pass defense and my game in general.

I was made to believe learning money plays was the best way to become competitive.

I mean shit, all you saw on Youtube was “UNSTOPPABLE 1 PLAY TOUCHDOWN GLITCH VS. EVERY COVERAGE.”

It wasn’t until I met my mentor “AthleticCedes” (who ACTUALLY knew Madden) that my entire view of Madden shifted.

This guy was winning cold hard cash off the game.

And I wasn’t no slouch myself at the time (Madden 25). I was consistently ranked top 5 on the head to head leaderboards for 3 years.

From my shortsighted view then, I thought I was the best player ever.

Then in Madden 25, I matched up with the gamertag “AthleticCedes”…

He was different from everyone else I ever matched up with.

And when I say different, I mean I had to be playing the forthcoming of jesus.

What Your Madden 24 Pass Defense Will Look Like If You Learn The 12 Fundamentals From A Credible Competitive Player

His reads were superhuman. 20/20 laser vision like a fictional superhero from a movie.

His receivers parted like the 7 seas rendering my user useless as each receiver was perfectly spaced out (great route combinations).

His pocket presence, impeccable. Enough time back there for a calm relaxing family picnic.

His defensive schemes were so beautifully engineered and disguised that a prophet from 2050 couldn’t predict what he was doing next.

His defenders came in multiples. All his db’s stalked my wr’s like a crazy ex gf.

His user defender moved so eloquently and freely that it could have passed for a figure skater in the Olympics.

His adjustments were so precisely timed and lockdown that he might as well have been living in my head.

Yeah… the guy was pretty good. I didn’t set the record for my most points lost by or anything.

I was so puzzled. I just had to speak to this guy. I didn’t know it was possible for someone to be that good.

I wanted to be that good.

I wanted to have those 45 minutes of fame where the game starts and every exterior thought unrelated to Madden vanished like a ghost.

I wanted to have those experiences where for those 45 minutes, I am transported to a seemingly different dimension where I am just untouchable.

What if it was possible to erase the personal hardships of reality and be transcended into a mode of invincibility?

Why Listening To Random Youtubers For Madden 24 Pass Defense Tips Is Handicapping Your Madden Game 

Luckily, Athletic accepted my party invite so we could chat.

What he told me overrode all 4 years of previous knowledge that I accumulated from all my favorite Madden Youtubers.

I realized everything I had ever learned from any Madden Youtuber was as useless as Shaquille O’Neal at the free throw line.

His defensive tips were unbelievable

“Manu get to the fucking point!!”

Sorry guys, I have ADHD.

Anyways, he told me there was an entire undercover world of competitive players.

So more guys like him with the superhuman reads, playcalls, and adjustments.

But what was most alarming, none of those competitive players he mentioned do Youtube so I had no one credible to learn from.

Even worse, the few competitive players I later found were teaching the game the same damn way everyone on Youtube did.

The difference was the competitive players knew that the money plays was not their secret to success…

However the last thing they wanted to do was reveal their strategic fundamental secrets to the public.

They knew it was the fundamentals separating them from the rest of the world.

So releasing e-book money plays were the feasible option because they still got paid without releasing their secrets to success.

They were afraid of getting passed up.

Plus, the money plays change every month.

So if I were to have bought 4 e-books per year for the next 10 years to keep pace with the everchanging metas, it would of cost me $1000 to not even strategically learn the game.

Will they sometimes give you a quick boost in confidence for a couple games? Sure.

But to me, buying e-books to fix a problem with losing games would be like leaning on hardcore drugs to overcome the loss of a best friend.

You may get a short high but at what cost? Does it actually solve your problem or does it mask it?

I may have gotten a couple more wins with an e-book but what would’ve happened when I played another AthleticCedes?

I knew ebooks would completely impair my ability to think for myself so I wasn’t go to step foot down that treacherous path.

Athletic wasn’t going to teach me step-by-step how to master the fundamentals either…

However he got me headed in the right direction and I learned from him what I needed to focus on:

Basic knowledge of what each zone defenders
Conceptually understanding how to attack every coverage
Building a solid base scheme to start games with on defense
Correctly reading defenses before and after snaps to determine my upcoming playcalls
Pocket presence mastery to buy more time
On-the-fly adjustments
And best believe there was much, much, more…

I knew it was not going to be easy trying to figure everything out on my own but I was still a young kid at the time with loads of free time.

My plan was to throw myself into the fire and just start playing money games vs. everyone.

Fast forward a decade or so… It didn’t turn out to be too bad of a plan…

(This is not to brag or boast but to show you have I have the proven track record to coach up the next big competitive player again)

I became a well-respected 3x professional champion…
