Welcome to the Madden 17 Defensive Lockdown eBook

Thank you for purchasing the Madden 17 Defensive Lockdown eBook for PlayStation 4 and XBOX One.  The eBook will be viewable directly on our website or via our Madden School Unlimited app.  This eBook is based out of the Jacksonville Jaguars defensive playbook but many of the plays can be found in other playbooks as well.

Keep in mind this ebook is not supposed to act as an official strategy guide.  It is just a collection of tips from our team of professional madden gamers organized in a way that is easy to understand.

Make sure Auto flip defensive playcall is set to off in your settings.  I really can’t stress that point enough.  It is extremely important.

Any type of tutorial on which buttons to press to get this stuff set up? I’m still pretty new to the game and seriously lost as to how I’m supposed to get it set up before my opponent snaps the ball.

The settings you show in the video. Are those the ones you play with? Defensive auto strafe, ball hawk, heat seeker, etc..

Do you think 4-3 is better than the 3-4 this year? Also, do you think the most important positions are on pass rushing since it is a ” coverage year”….more coverage would mean you need better rushers since there are more people in coverage by default, right? Thoughts? Thanks again guys!

I am a blind user playing on Xbox one. For defensive purposes, is there a easy way to remember which positions are on what button assignments? For example is it Universal and the three four formation that the number one cb is B and the number to CB is X? I have someone sit down with me to put my playbook together, as you can imagine it’s very time-consuming and some are reluctant to do it. So I’m trying to cut out the last step of having them go through every formation to show me what positions are on each button. I prescient it if you could help me with that.at appreciate it if you could help me with that.

I thought that if you are at the pre-snap menu and you hit left button twice and bring up the defense of line and they have icons over their heads at that point. That’s what I was referring to. Am I wrong about that?
