Post by tru11 on Thu 26 Nov 2009, 10:29 am

all i got to say is with the addition off leon washington most off my running plays will be money plays .
i got some plays that are only in my playbook and they rock.

passing spread the field use screens with slants to set up the deep ball.
be diverse .

also dbatch plays are good i had some trouble stopping them. i recommend them for anyone who has trouble passing.
they are high percentage throws.

but in the end it all comes down to excecution.
any play can go the distane.

Im with you btlrals love my trucking back LARRY JOHNSON, if i had a speed back would make it unfair for my opponents.
Not cockyness just the truth Smile as people are finding out in my other franchise as i drafted a 93speed back and dropped forte. Reaping my rewards with him Smile

I'm somewhat concerned by screens in this year's madden. Frankly they seem to work rather too well.

Not sure about that. Sometimes they do, but sometimes your HB can't get free and you either get sacked, hurried, or if you do complete the pass, tackled for a loss. All about defending the flats if your opponent is using them repeatedly.

it´s just i play madden for the fun of the game and try to play as authentic as possible. some people are just playing it to see what weaknesses there are in the game so they can use those "bugs" in their favor. i stopped playing online matches because it just sucked

Well is use a commitee at RB. Mclain and mcghaa for between the tackkles but i need a speedster for the change of pace. Im pretty good at making people miss without juking and spinning which prevents me for loosing speed. But i got to say rice was the best of both worlds so i wonder how leon will do. And anybody can be beaten. I lost a couple of games online altough alot was due to the server lmao.

Screen pass can work well but there are ways of stopping it. If you run a LB contain play and/or blitz corners that can stop a screen for negative yardage.

it´s all about reading offenses...as tru11 said...every play can go the distance. if you set your defense up good and you are able to read your opponent he could run any play, he still won´t get much. either way you´re going to give up yards. it´s just about not giving up big chunks.
ps: i´m not saying i can do that! lol

That's been my problem so far on D this year. My run D is good but pass defense is awful, keep giving up the big plays. My game last night against the Cardinals owner was a great example, 4th quarter comeback to go up 32-30 with 0:46 on the clock. First play from scrimmage Cardinals get a 44yd reception to set up winning FG and hand me my second straight loss, 32-33. Aaargh! 3-2 on the season now.

I just don't understand why people do that. Is winning really that important? Yes, it's nice to win, but you don't feel great about it afterwards if you've effectively cheated through cheesing.

Another thought I had: wish there was a feature where you could watch other games in the franchise in progress. For example, it would be good if you could hook up to watch whoever is in the superbowl.

I love defence as im the ravens lolz. But got to say my d is good due to all speed and decent hands. I can also be creative with blizting and yeah it helps to play with ray. Btw overall rating means nothing as why you see barnes playing. Chiefs know what im talking about. Btw it was pretty funny to catch both makino an moss from behind hahah. Big plays i dont give up to much or i use it to set up the interception hehe. Might give you a certain place you can go to but then all of sudden on ya next play its a pick hahaha.

Dawg totally agree with you on watching games, would be very good for banter purposes. Make it more life like as you could scout your opponents!

Another thing that sucks? You cant practice with your team. I've joined the Titans second year in another franchise and due to drafts and trades my team is totally different to the starting roster, and I dont particularly want to smash up my roster just for a practice!

As for cheesing, yes I love to win but I take more pleasure out of losing a proper slug fest game, where people are mixing up plays than winning through using dump offs to my RB as 8 people are dropping into coverage. Surely it must get boring to the cheesers?

I think it depends what your QB is like. Having got hold of Palmer on this franchise, it's quite refreshing to throw the ball downfield with a chance it might go somewhere vaguely near your receiver. I think it depends on the weapons you have at your disposal: on my other Browns teams, my arsenal is simply one of those guns when you press the trigger and a little flag with "Bang!" on it pops out.

Thats the thing I just find that people use screens all the time and certainly considerably more than in the nfl. With people likely running one every 3-5 downs and all they need is one good set of blocks and its a 60yd td (it probably doesn't help that my defence is pretty weak and insanely slow).

Like bitrals above i like playing it as an nfl sim rather than an arcade game. All that having been said the people on here seem like a good group and I am having fun despite being 1-2 in the league

Got to agree, in the two games I've played against users they play in a way consistent with the NFL - no nanos, mix of run and pass and I like to think I do the same. If only I could beat someone who isn't the CPU.

Sorry sped, I'm not on your schedule!

Brin: there are some very good players in the AFC. I've already written off my playoff chances. I suspect the eventual winner will be from the AFC too - but could be wrong!
