The turbozoom concept, which can be ran out of the Houston Texans’ offensive playbook, is dangerously effective in Madden 13. You will notice our running back getting a huge burst of speed when the ball is snapped and gets a great jump on the defense. It absolutely destroys cover 3 defense while still very productive against cover 2 zone defense and man to man defense. We have the full breakdown below.
Playbook: Houston Texans
Formation: Gun Tight Doubles On
Play: Any passing play
- Hot route your running back to a streak route and motion him to the left.
- Hot route your other receivers to any route you want (we recommend putting both outside receivers on fade routes).
- You should notice that your running back pretty much false starts and takes about 2 steps before anyone else on offense. Against cover 3, just lead pass into the open space.
- Against cover 2, either of your outside wide receivers on fade routes will be open.
- Against a man to man blitz, just lob the ball to your running back who will be running by a safety or linebacker.
In the video above, we run it with just the running back going out on a route against a standard cover 3 defense. Obviously we don’t recommend doing this. We did it this way just to prove a point.
