NEED SOME HELP IMPROVING YOUR OFFENSE?

Post by falconfansince81 on Thu Oct 28, 2010 3:35 pm

i was going to make some tutorial vids for anyone who is looking to improve their game by reading defenses and identifying coverages to make proper reads without relying on staring down one receiver, and even worse...making bad throws because lets face it we're not all nfl qb's so sometimes guys might just pick a play and hope someone is open. this is NOT the way to produce successful drives, and i think if we all take the time to go back over the basics it may really help turn those int ridden games into a closer contest.

i have a lot of games where i'm getting 4-10 int's which turn what could be a close game into a blowout really fast, and not to sound pretentious but i win my games because i first make proper reads and know exactly what route will be open based on that coverage read (accompanied with user picks). a couple years ago a stumbled upon this guys site, and while it may seem basic i encourage EVERYONE to watch these vids...whether you can identify a cover 2,3,4 in less than a second or not its a great learning tool that i think can really contribute to improving everyones gameplay.

the videos embedding feature has been disabled, but if you click on em it will play it through the guys site (just right click and open in new window). i don't have any special secrets or trick plays to winning a lot of games, its all about knowing what defense your facing and who will be open. running the ball is also VERY vital, and the second group of vids will feature great advice for improving that department as well. hope you guys take the brief time to watch...and yes its madden 08 but nothing has changed anyways as far as plays are concerned. again, its the concept thats important...and each video has a description in the title once you play it so you might not need to watch every single one, just maybe some on areas you'd like to further improve on although i recommend watching them all...even its its just one or two a day.

Just checked out the video, it's definitely good stuff. I already do most of it, but I've been completely forgetting to use precision on my passes, which helps. Also, do we play with turbo on or off? And what's the button to get back your original play after an audible? It's not L2/LB anymore.

i leave turbo on, and turn auto strafe off. i think L2 does bring the play back, but i don't remember at what point in the garbage of stratpad it occurs.

a lot of the vids are basics, but even still its good for a refresher or just for people who not really be that aware of the importance of knowing what will be open in certain coverages. hell, until i watched these in 08 i never payed attention i just pick a play and looked for someone to be open. once i got down reading defenses my int's went from 4-5 a game sometimes to maybe 1 every few games. it also helps ON defense to shut down your opp by picked the d to best defend their tendencies.

i think the biggest reason you get INT's is because you are pretty good at USER PICKS! lol especially down the middle.

even with the receiver outrunning your LB, and lob passing it with percision over the top, you still pick that off with your LB lol

i just tried the L2 audible but it didn't work. Regardless now that I was reminded of precision passing, I was able to use it in my Mg game against delmas. I've been on a streak lately, so idk if it was definitely the precision passing, but I didn't throw a single pick this game. Granted, I only threw the ball 13 times lol.

Kavorka, there's no doubt about it, FF's linebacking skills are unrivaled. I feel like I've gotten a lot better trying to emulate him, and I'm sure a lot of people would agree, but I'd say I'm still not even close to his skill lol. I can't wait til our league game in Greener's new lg though.

Hey I was jsut wondering if you could give me some tips on how to audible on defense. I know how to utilize the obvious pre-play audible with d-line and pressing coverage and what not, but I was wondering if you could tell me how to set up indivdual player audibles. For example, I play a lot of man coverage but even double covering recievers sometimes is useless at stopping speedy wr streaks. So how can I audible one of those guys into a deep zone or to play a flat should i expect a short swing pass to the RB?

Hitting x makes individual player audibles. So for example, if I'm controlling my olb and I want him to cover the flat I hit x then d pad left. If I want him to do a deep One (like ur fs does in a cover 3) I hit x and then right analog stick up. Here's the rest of the list


Dpad:

Up- hook zone (like the ilb in a cover 2)
Right - Buzz zone (used for to cover the space BETWEEN a flat and deep zone)
Left - flat zone (covers nearest flats)
Down - blitz

Right analog:
Up - drop zone (like the safeties in covers 2/3)
Right - qb contain
Left - qb spy
Down - Never used it lol

Hope that helps bro

I use X for individual player audibles (I think that happened in the first patch), you can do line audibles with L1 (I think), Linebacker audibles with R1 (I think), and coverage audibles with Triangle.

yeah i do the coverage ones the same, i never tried x it always switched players...so i've been having to hit down to go through scat pad. i'll try that out later, good to know! its a real pain in the ass trying to make 4-5 manual player audibles and switch back before the ball is snapped w/o the old system.

Yeah it is...also, what were some of the blitzes you used through Nickel sub? I've pretty much been working everything through 2 man under from either 3-4 normal or nickel normal. I'd like to be able to throw some different looks, but whenever I pick a zone or a blitz, the coverage is easy to read and I get beat right away.

hmm i don't really remember, i usually pick like cover 3 outta the nickle sub but sub in a lb at re instead and and put him in a flat zone or buzz zone, then i can blitz the cb. been doing a lot more with zones than man but there def has to be pressure so i've been bringing it from corners, while having a lb playing end play that blitzing cb's zone.
