PSSO S4E7 Covering Cover 4 and the Shot Play to take against it.

What are the basics of Cover 4? This one play is the best way to take a shot against it.

This episode marks the fourth episode of our spread offense passing series where am breaking down different coverages and their individual strengths and weaknesses. This week is Cover 4 which is a great coverage for defenses but in my opinion is one of the most difficult for coaches to teach.

Cover 4 can be attacked on the edges but watch out for those squatting Safeties! True cover 4 is a match up coverage like Cover 2 which is why it can be difficult to throw against. Fortunately there are some good options – especially a Shot pass I picked up from Tom Herman that I think you will love!
