I normally stay in my base 4-3 on against up 3 WRs. When i'm thinking run against 3 Wrs i will run a cover 1 and make sure i flip the play so that the safety in mAn is covering the slot WR in case they do pass. When I'm thinking pass I might run something like a cover 3 or zone blitz from a cover 3 shell and flip the play so that the safety covering short can take care of the slot WR. This is against 3 WRs or 2 WRs with a TE. Against 4 or more WRs I try to stick with Cover 2 man because you never know what alignment the O will be in with all those WRs.

Like you, I'm offline exclusively. I do however play the auto pass coach mode as opposed to the true coach mode.
