Get Back To Fundamentals: Cover 1

Known as the "best defense in football", Cover 1 provides the defense with a bullet-proof answer for nearly everything and typically an extra defender at the point of attack. With 1-high safety closing the middle of the field (MOFC), the defense is built inside-out, looking to spill all plays to the sideline. Because everyone is manned up with a safety in the deep hole, that will leave one linebacker free, who becomes the "rat in the hole" who robs the underneath hole and intercepts any crossers that come free.
