Playbook: Seattle Seahawks

Formation: 4-3 Over

Play: Fire Zone 2

Setup:

  1. Base Align
  2. Pinch your defensive line and crash them down
  3. Spread your linebackers
  4. Blitz the MLB (on the left of screen)
  5. Zone the 2 lineman on the right side of the screen

Overview: User the OLB on the right side of the field and when the ball is snapped, take away the left part of the field.  By that time, you should have a sack.

  4. Blitz the MLB (on the left of screen)
  5. Zone the 2 lineman on the right side of the screen

Is this madden 18 or 17? And I just purchased are u guys covering identifying the mike counters for these blitzes? I understand mixing up ur defense but do u guys have plays that attacks qb regardless of identifying the mike?

How do we hard flat the LBs? Is that a global LB adjustment we can do this year?

Where I can I find the buttons for all of the stuff you’re saying to do on the PS4?

Honestly I’d gain the most right now by understanding how to complete pre-play adjustments. Even the skills training doesn’t give a full explanation of adjustments

I have a comment about how to stop the 5 man vertical. Once I put a man in the flat for the running back and or WR, I always user the MLB and stop the te but in a recent game, the TE has been getting open between the safety and MLB just out of my range. How do I stop that, please help.

Any recommendations on stopping the run using 4-3 D#. Since the recent update, all madden – Sim- franchise mode, the run has been difficult to stop bc blocks are held longer.
