    Cover 0—Zero Deep Man Cover Zero is a man to man defense with the middle of the field open and all defenders on the line of scrimmage. It is used to stop the run, pressure the quarterback and disrupt short passing plays with everyone on the line threatening to blitz. The free safety rolls up to the line of scrimmage to cover or blitz. Corners play 3 to 5 yards head up or inside receivers and often play bump and run coverage. Outside linebackers and the strong safety take the runningbacks or tightend. The middle linebacker usually blitzes. Defenders often look at the receivers, rather than at the quarterback. In cover zero, the open areas are in the middle of the field and away from the defenders. The QB needs to pick up the blitz and throw the ball early to an outlet running back or receiver. There is also a curl and post seam in the middle of the field since the middle linebacker vacated to blitz and there is no deep free safety. A final option is to quickly throw outs, slants, fades, and corners to receivers running crossing routes away from defenders, especially where there are mismatches with faster receivers. Keep in mind that the free safety can disguise cover zero as cover one by setting up deep and then rotating to the scrimmage line. What will be the open areas on the field?
