Madden 13 Defensive Lockdown eBook

Madden 13 Defensive Lockdown eBook

The Defensive Lockdown eBook for Madden 13 has to be our best ebook of all time.  We spent hours in practice mode labbing up the best defensive plays in Madden 13.  I don’t know too many people that use more than 10 plays on defense per game which makes that fact that this ebook contains 30 plays out of 9 formations even more impressive.  Each and every play can be found in the 46 defensive playbook although there are many plays that can be found in other playbooks as well.

Words really can’t do this ebook justice so please watch a short 1 minute video below that shows you the type of heat you can expect when you buy it.

Again, there are 30 plays (Most of them are heavy pressure with 4 to 6 defenders blitzing) and great coverage behind them, although there are some run stoppers and situational defenses included too.  The list of formations covered is below.

  1. Big Nickel Bear
  2. 3-4 Solid
  3. 46 Normal
  4. 46 Bear
  5. Nickel 3-3-5 Will
  6. Dollar 3-2-6
  7. Dime Flat
  8. Quarters 3 Deep
  9. (Bonus Content) 46 Bear Under

This year our ebooks are fully compatible with PCs, Macs, laptops, ipads, iphones, any kind of smart phone or tablet.  Pretty much if you can connect to the internet, you can view it.  Each play includes a full HD video as well as a detailed written breakdown.

It doesn’t matter whether you are a seasoned Madden veteran or completely new to the game, this ebook will help take your game to the next level.  The plays are simple enough for inexperienced gamers to use while dominant enough to be ran by veterans playing money games.

      I don’t know if you can say but how many run stops and passing coverages does this contain?

      • Madden-School

        Sep 29, 2012 at 7:15 pm

        It is approximately 75% pass coverages (Effective blitzes) and 25% run stoppers.

    I’m interested in buying your ebook but my only concern is the coverage behind the the blitz

    • Madden-School

      Aug 31, 2012 at 11:53 am

      Every blitz in the ebook is different but none are more than 6 guys so you will always have at least 5 guys in coverage.

      A little late on the reply, but I’ve had a lot of success with the blitzes out of the advanced defense e book. once you know enough to mix up man and zone, its very hard to stop.

    I noticed some of these blitzes. I have run a couple but don’t come I as fast. I actually play with the broncos. Do you make any adjustments to your defense?

    • Madden-School

      Sep 4, 2012 at 12:49 pm

      Yes most of the blitzes require between 1-3 adjustments from the standard play.

  11. jon

    Sep 4, 2012 at 10:59 am

    Is it going to show me presnap adjustments, defensive hot routes and line shifts and what not for each play?

    • Madden-School

    Fair warning to all all though this tips are legit do not try to purchase anything to madden strategy tips it’s BS it’s a scam the contact nber is a goggle voice number . You will pay and get a blank email. After the merchant replied to two of my emails the 3 4 and 5th emails were sent back as undelivered mail return to sender. Dissapointed madden school recommended them in at least one of the videos or now wondering if all in it together. Just a thought.

    How are most of these plays viewed in tournaments? Would they be banned because some may consider them a “nano” blitz?

    • Madden-School

      Sep 6, 2012 at 11:44 am

      These plays would be acceptable at most tournaments

      • Madden-School

        Oct 16, 2012 at 11:44 pm

        Our defensive lockdown ebook is based exclusively out of the 46 playbook so that will work perfectly for you. Our offensive attack ebook is based out of the atlanta falcons playbook. You would have to switch to that playbook for maximum effectiveness on offense

  24. jimmy

    Sep 12, 2012 at 10:44 am

    • Madden-School

    I play in a sim league that doesn’t allow you to manually put players in gaps. Are the set ups done without manually moving players into gaps or onto the hips of D linemen?

    • Madden-School

      Oct 6, 2012 at 12:04 pm

      Yes most of them are, but the ebook includes a lot of nano blitzes which generally aren’t allowed in sim leagues.

    Oct 21, 2012 at 6:37 pm

    Great ebook! Is there anyway we can get an update about locking down pass plays? I run the plays given but they realize i keep bringing people and do quick passes on me. Any tips?

    • Madden-School

      Oct 21, 2012 at 10:12 pm

      Try dropping 8 or 9 guys into coverage with something like 2 man under with your defensive ends in yellow or purple zones

  46. Will

    Oct 22, 2012 at 9:18 pm

    How does this still work when guys on defense don’t stay put anymore? Every time you put a player somewhere and you go to use another player then that first players starts to move back by itself.

    • Madden-School

      Oct 23, 2012 at 1:47 am

      We use minimal movements with our defenders and we are still able to get pressure just as effectively as in previous madden games.

  47. Jack

    Oct 29, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    I’m really interested in getting this ebook, but I’ve been watching a lot of these free videos from the 46 and most of these blitz are when the QB is under center and I tried these blitz when QB was in shotgun and they didn’t work. I’d be more inclined to purchase this if I saw some videos where QB is in shotgun.

    • Madden-School

      Oct 29, 2012 at 11:37 pm

      I’m not sure why you are getting those results, most of the blitzes work against both shotgun and undercenter the same way.

      You can view it on both computers

  51. Roger

    Dec 7, 2012 at 11:07 am

    Few things:

    1. Is it all nano blitzes?

    2. I am changing my defense up in an online CC and will be moving players around on the depth chart to better accommodate this scheme.

    Does the ebook give an idea of the best way to setup my attack given the personnel I have? I want to know where my players like Ngata and Suggs should go on the D-line, or which types of players I am looking for with my TNT combination. Stuff like that.

    Regardless I am looking to purchase this for some defensive help with the 46 especially being completely new to the base scheme. I have expiramented a bunch and still have not found that winning depth chart combination or set of plays that is just monstrous. I like the way this ebook sounds but I don’t want all nanos and I want some sort of idea on how to set a team up thats not setup to run a 46. Like a Hybrid team like the Ravens.

    Any thoughts or comments will help.


    Mr. Rabbit

    • Madden-School

      Dec 7, 2012 at 12:35 pm

      This ebook is mostly blitzes with good coverage behind them as well as some run stoppers. You’ll want to set up your depth chart like a 4-3 team would meaning playing Suggs at DE and Ngata at DT

    who would you reccomend using in a chicago bears lineup?

    • Madden-School

      Dec 18, 2012 at 11:09 am

      Yes we actually run the plays in the videos with the Bears so they will work great with this ebook.

  53. Joeyb77

    Dec 20, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    What is the best real to use with this?

    • Madden-School

      Dec 20, 2012 at 7:06 pm

      It just depends on your preferences. Teams like the Bears, Giants, Falcons work really well with this ebook but also if you move some personnel around it works great with the Texans, 49ers, Packers, Ravens, and other 3-4 teams.

      • Joeyb77

        Dec 20, 2012 at 10:02 pm

        Awh see I use the 9ers with Aldon smith comeing off the edge And basically use a 2 man under cuz I got the ppl to do it, I’m nice but just trying to get some lockdown d, any specific play that you like best ?

  54. Tony

    Jan 10, 2013 at 3:49 pm

    Do you use the Bears version of the 46 or the 46 Defense under My Madden? I noticed the Bears didn’t have the 3-4 Odd. Thanks.

    • Madden-School

      Jan 10, 2013 at 10:13 pm

      We use the actual 46 playbook for this ebook

    I don’t have the best ‘Stick Skills’ and have trouble making a lot of pre-snap adjustments. Does this guide have many effective set-ups that can be done quickly?

    • Madden-School

      Jan 20, 2013 at 1:40 pm

      Yes most of the setups require only 2 or 3 steps

    I was able to check out your defensive lockdown ebook for maden 12 from a friend of mine and i though it was awesome.

    I just have a few questions before purchasing:
    1. I noticed that you have 2 Defensive ebooks this year. in your opinion which one is better?
    2. Believe it or not, I am just getting my hands on madden 13 two days and want to run with either the Bengals or Seahawks. Does you ebooks come with depth chart setups and which ebooks would you recommend for those two teams?
    3. Are any of those ebooks updated throughout the madden season?

    • Madden-School

      Feb 6, 2013 at 8:47 pm

      1. We do have 2 ebooks but one is not really better than the other they are just based out of different playbooks. The defensive lockdown is based out of the 46 playbook, while the advanced defensive tactics one is based out of the Miami playbook.

      2. The depth charts for both of those teams are very straight forward. Both of those teams run a base 4-3 defense so they would actually work with either ebook.

      3. Although we don’t guarantee updates, we do deliver them from time to time. We have already released one update for the defensive lockdown ebook this year.

    Apr 5, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    1. I like the 9ers and raiders would this work with those teams
    2. Is there plays good for the pass and run
    3. What team would you recommend for the playbook

    • Madden-School

      Apr 6, 2013 at 8:05 pm

      Either of those teams would work fine with this ebook. The ebook focuses mostly on defending the pass but we do include a few run stoppers in it as well. There isn’t really an ideal team to use this playbook with. Obviously, a team with a good defense will be more effective than a team with terrible personnel but other than that there arent really any requirements needed to use this ebook
