Madden 16 Great Blitz: 46 Bear Under LB Dogs

Playbook: Seattle Seahawks

Formation: 46 Under

Play: LB Dogs


  1. Base Align
  2. Crash the defensive line toward the middle
  3. Put the ROLB (On the left side of the screen) in a zone

Overview: We like to user the safety covering the running back to take away our opponents first read.  By that time, your opponent should be under some heavy pressure.

Let’s take a look at how this play works in a little more detail.

This is how the play should look pre-snap.  If anything, it would appear to the offense that the pressure is coming from the right side of the field.

The pressure should come from your defensive end through the B-Gap between the LT and the LG.

  1. I must be doing something wrong as I have not gotten pressue once with this play.

    1. Press why, then left on left anaolg to Base Align.
    2. Press left on bumper and crash dline middle.
    3. Hot route ROLB (left side of screen to any zone) I have been doing a curl to flat as that is what is done in the video.

    Am I missing something?

    1. Is your opponent blocking an extra running back or tight end? Is he calling play action or using slide protection? Have you been doing it in practice mode a bunch of times? Any of these things might cause the play not to work the way you see it in the video.

      1. The previous guys controls are backwards. Base align Y/Triangle then right on the analog stick. Left on the analog stick is show blitz. And then the LB/L1 is for the linebackers. RB/R1 is for the DLine.

  2. Quick question: Every time I run this blitz, it works great, but the ROLB never actually plays the zone I put him in. I put him in a curl-to-flat zone and all he does is rush. Any idea why this might be?

    1. Check your play art to make sure you put him in a zone. I have never heard of that happening before.
