Do these ebooks and tips work for xbox 360 too?

I have followed these steps and use the same defensive play, but cannot get the same look or result.
1. RB then down on LS (Bringing Linebackers Down)
2. LB then left on LS, LB then left on RS (Shifting line and crashing the line)
3. Y then down on LS (Press Coverage)
4. LT then RB (QB Contain)
Is this correct or am I making a mistake somewhere?
