Learning the Cover 2

There is no more widely known defensive strategy in the NFL than the Cover 2. It seems like every team runs it, if you ever needed a quick fix in your coverage while getting a beatdown in Madden, the Cover2 was your answer. The funny thing is that no one knows exactly how it works, but for some reason it does and during flag football its something we can talk about in the huddle to impress our friends. However, we have good news. Although we don't have Tony Dungy or Marvin Lewis to break it down for us, we have ESPN who even made a cool Flash applet so we can visualize the circles as us playing linebacker.
