The Problem with Cover 2 | QC Episode 204

Cover 2 is a strong coverage in the right situations and with the right defensive front. With the wrong front, it’s broken. 

Great questions this week about the 4-2-5 Defense. It’s a two-part question too, so you’ll even get some bonus content. 

The first question is about running Cover 2 coverage and being forced to make adjustments on the weak side. There’s a reason it doesn’t work, and you’ll find that out in this episode. Then we’ll talk a little Option and Iso, and where that can fall apart too.
