Strong Close Quick Toss

Tosses and run plays in general do not work nearly as well in madden 12 as they have in years past.  That means finding a run play that consistently works is even more important than ever before.  In this free madden 12 tip, you will learn how to run this play for consistent yards.  Ideally, you will want to call this with a fast or good running back like Chris Johnson, MJD, etc.

Formation: Strong Close

Play: Quick Toss


  1. Against man defense, motion your receiver on the right to the left
  2. Against zone defense, leave the play as is

Why this play works:  This play works especially well against man defense, becauseby motioning your receiver over, you clear out an entire side of the field allowing a good running back to get out to the sideline and cut upfield.
