Madden School Unlimited Preview

Welcome to the Madden School Unlimited free preview!  Here is a look at our smallest ebook, the Madden 17 Singleback Jumbo Heavy Mini eBook.

This formation forces your opponent to respect the running game.  If you are playing a guy while likes to come out in Nickel or Dime formations in order to set up nano blitzes, you will easily be able to just run the ball until he adjusts.

The best part about this formation is that you can flip any of these plays and attack the other side of the field and your opponent will have no way of knowing.

There are a couple things you should be aware of in order to make this mini ebook most effective.  The quick video below will go over those things and then we will get into the plays.

Let’s dive right in…
