In today’s free Madden 25 tip, we are going over a question asked in yesterday’s comment section to go over a way to beat man press.

We have an incredibly easy concept below that goes over just that.

  1. Thanks I plan on getting the ebook this weekend. I guess my problem is getting fixated with 1 or 2 plays and become predictable. Keep up the great work.

  2. Is there anyway to know if your Opponent is in man or zone !!!

    1. Move somebody in motion and see if a defender follows is the easiest way.

      1. This technique worked in previous madden games but no longer works in Madden 13 or Madden 25.

        1. Ohhh? Darn, I honestly haven’t even tried.

          Great defensive ebook BTW!!

          I’ll let you know how it works out for me.

  3. Great tip as always. Covering kickoffs is much tougher this year, any suggestions?

  4. Hey guys thanks for the great videos I’ll watched everyone one of them, and appreciate all of the help. I would greatly appreciate any help on trying to stop the read option. Any formation but preferably spread or 3-4 wrs. Any play that could stop that and passing routes too would be great. Thanks for your time.

    1. My friend uses the eagles I destroy him on offense but he does hurry up with Vick does the read option i cant stop him and he audibles to go routes or slants when I press and show blitz.

    2. Try stacking the box (spread out and crash out d line while pinching the linebackers) out of cover 3, spy and user the ss.. Should limit runs to no more than 4-5 yards and absolutely kills stretch and tosses. Also focus on the qb, even if its handed off to the rb you’ll be in a position to make a play. Hope this helps.

  5. What is the best defense against the slant?

  6. I’ve actually tried this and it doesn’t work often against fast corners with high man coverage and decent awareness. P. Peterson. Steven Gilmore. Etc. It actually could cause a turnover. This is a problem when playing mut because so often people have multiple corners with great stats. Any alternatives?
