In today’s free Madden School tip, SnA Exclusive is going over a way to bring heat in Madden 15.  This blitz has worked for the past few Madden games, so it is something you will also want to try when Madden 16 comes out in August.

This play is pretty easy to set up and when you set it up correctly, it is balanced so you don’t have any obvious weaknesses.

Playbook: Cover 2 and Multiple D

Formation: Big Nickel Strong

Play: Sugar 3 Seam

Setup:

  1. Base Align
  2. Crash Defensive line down
  3. Shift LB right and re-blitz LOLB (right on dpad) *optional but recommended*
  4. Fake blitz ROLB *optional but creates double edge*
  5. Pass Commit *optional and removes threat of PA*

Overview: This has been a blitz that’s carried over through 3 versions of Madden now and I still like it a lot due to the balanced look it gives along with how well it stops the outside run game and quick passes down the seams. Rushing 5 gives you instant left edge heat with the option of getting double edge if you hold the LB that covers the middle of the field.
