4-3 Stack OLB Fire Man (Advanced Defensive Tactics eBook Preview)


Instead of trying to tell you just how awesome our new Advanced Defensive Tactics eBook for Madden 13 is, we instead decided to give away the first play in the ebook for free so you can get a feel for what to expect.  The play below is extremely simple yet very effective.

Playbook: Miami Defense

Formation: 4-3 Stack

Play: OLB Fire Man Advanced Defensive Tactics eBook Preview


  1. Crash and spread your D-line out
  2. Reblitz both DEs
  3. Spread your linebackers

As you saw in the video, this play brings fast pressure off both edges of the field.  In the Advanced Defensive Tactics eBook, we mix this play in with various other blitzes as well as some max coverage defenses.  Everything looks the exact same to your opponent but he won’t know whether you are bringing intense pressure or playing a soft zone.

  1. What do you mean crash DL “out” on xbox is doesn’t give that option its middle rt left up no out and why, whats the advantage? Thanks for the reply in advance.

    1. Out meaning toward the outside. It is technically up on your controller. The advantage is that it just changes the blitz angles of the defensive lineman slightly which allows us to get maximum pressure.

  2. I’m not getting it 🙁 Crash the LE left then re blitz him and do the same to the RE ? I can Kinnda get it to work without the crash, I just re blitz them after I spread them ? Thxs

  3. Plz help I can’t get this to work ? Always get blocked by TE & RB

  4. I highly recommend the Advanced Defensive eBook. It is an awesome eBook and by my favorite. If you run 4-3 your game will be virtually unstoppable!
