What Is The Definition Of Cover Two Zone In Football?
1. The cover two defensive strategy involves two defensive players (usually the two safeties) covering an area far down the field in an attempt to disrupt any attempts by the offense at a deep pass. With the cover two zone, in addition to the safeties covering their specific zones, the cornerbacks and the linebackers will now drop back into their specific zones in order to defend against the pass. Each player is to only cover their specific assignments on the field.
The strategy may be used with either zone or man-to-man coverage. This is a common defensive strategy used by today’s teams, and it involves less risk than a cover three defense.
