  5. Put your defensive tackle on the right into a yellow zone

I think left is QB SPY and right is Bluff Blitz, but as soon as you hit A it will show you.

Btw thanks for your help madden school! I was pretty good last year, won one Super Bowl in my franchise and won some money on gamer saloon, but this site took me to a whole other level. I’m on a 15 game win streak online in 17.

Second this. Some stuff for 3-4/odd front teams would be great (3-4, 335 wide, etc).

I really hate the glitch that you can tell the pass/run it kind of ruins the whole game….

It’ll be patched by next week. I can almost guarantee that. Then again, they are more concerned about putting the Colin Kaepernick announcement in the game………

Would definitely love to see a defensive e-book on how to blow up the stretch/toss/power/counter plays. But until then, I have a good one out of 3-4 Odd, the play is called Cover 4 Drop shadow 2. All you do is spread the d line, base align, and user one of your faster MLBs. Only problem is this play leaves holes in the middle and flats on passing plays, but it sure gets your opponent to rethink the stretch play pretty quick.

I got faith in you all over at Madden-School. You guys rock!

Random question. So I keep getting burned by a guy who does mesh plays 24/7. When I contain the mesh, he’ll scramble right to wait for someone to be opened or he’ll run. PLEASE HELP ME

I’ll try hard flat next. This is what I did when I last played him. I would use nickel normal cover 2 buster, put my right end on a light blue and shade underneath. It would stop it but then he could scramble right or move right till someone eventually got opened. Any tips for that? I would also do 46normal cover 2 invert and it would allow about 3-5 yds but my goal is 0 yards. Overall, are there any blitzes you prefer that send quick heat and stop the short passes underneath? This guy beats me because of possession. He doesn’t even make big plays.. He’s all about 3-7yd passes and goes for it on 4th down 24/7 -.-

When using cover 2 or the buster play, I get beat deep so often. My player can be in perfect defensive position but the receiver just jumps up and grabs it 1 on 1 every time. Can you shed some light in this? I’ve tried play ball, play receiver, swat all of the above. Only thing that works is triple coverage On the deep routes.
