Best Answer

A cover 4 defense is a Zone Defense. It is sometimes referred to as the Prevent Defense (as in it prevents your team from winning). In the Cover 4 Zone Defense, both the Corner Backs and Safeties play in deep zone coverage trying to prevent the opponents offense from making a big play. If the zone system works, the defense and limit the yardage gained by the offense. The Cover 4 is susceptable to offensive gains with the use of an intermediate length passing attack, which allows the offense to move down the field in short increments. Its biggest failing is if a receiver gets behind a deep cover Corner, then the opposing team is able to make a huge, potentially scoring, play.
