Cover 6 Defense
When an offensive team prefers to put its backside receiver on the weak side, Cover 6 is a great coverage to utilize. When the defense is in 3x1 sets, this will allow the defense to cloud cover the backside receiver.
What is a Cover 6 defense?
On Cover 6, the defensive strength should be assigned to the Field instead of the offensive formation or front line, and personnel should be arranged by player on the Field side and the player on the boundary side. During Cover 6, the field safety and corner positions cover four quarters of the field, with the outside linebacker supporting underneath. Cover 6 defense is a weak ( boundary ) reduction, a mixture of cover 2 & 4. This coverage is commonly used in today's modern day football.
This Cover 6 combines the strong safety of the Cover 2 (that covers the field on half of the side) with the cover 4 of the opposite side. This particular coverage is widely used on both collegiate and professional levels because of its advantages.
As mentioned, Cover 6 combines the best of Cover 2 and Cover 4. On the boundary, Cover 6 uses a Cover 2 corner. The boundary corner is in excellent position to cover outside runs and flat passes. The safety stays far above the line to support the boundary corner on any deep pass. The field corner plays a deep coverage, reads the no. 1 wide receiver and plays all outside patterns. The Cover 6 is also good for calling a corner blitz from the weak side, and having the linebacker cover flats instead.
