Default madden 25 thread

If Barry Sanders gets hurt, i will officially believe in the curse

Madden 25, talk about it.

Getting beat by curls? Change a d end to curl flats, drop him underneath the curl route. Works really well wit man. Or take a blitzing lb and hot route him the same. Change back and forth keep them guessing.

Any tips for playing dline?

What position do you play with?

I've been beat twice with me making horrible throws, one i fumbled the ball 4times. The others were dudes that had one play and ran it to perfection. Running the ball is tripping me up. Lots of buttons to push now

I can't get any push when I use defensive lineman. I run Multiple D and rotate between a 3-4 and Dime. On offense I don't usually run the ball unless I am draining clock. I throw in an HB draw every now and then to keep the MLB honest. I kicked a 60 yard field goal today with Matt Prater. It was in easily.

When I lose, it's always because I can't top the run. I got beat by the Bills and Eagles. There speed running to the outside was too much for me to handle. I couldn't find a way to stop it.

I use custom pb on off and def, based off kubiaks pb. I have virtually every 3-4 play to choose from. If i can't run the ball, i usually lose.

The best way i have found to stop the sweep is to get a lb and just fly to edge. I'm not that good with lbs so if they pass im usually in trouble. Or bring a cb on a blitz.

Watt gets a push. I found the most important part of playing dline is the timing of the jump button with the pass. If I'm late or early with the swat button i get burned. If I'm on, it usually gets broken up.

Custom playbook has been fixed for all i know. Special teams are no longer weird and audibles work

I stopped using the Texans. Schaub is a disaster in that game and I pass 85% of the time. On offense my playbook is balanced and on defense it is Multiple D or Denver's defense. Depends who I am playing. I use the Broncos now and I'm doing pretty good. Welker is great.

I've started running 2 man under and just pulling the safety on Champ Bailey's side up and using him to stop speed players on the edge. It's been working.

I played a guy who tried to run with Schaub on the first drive. He didn't slide or go out of bounce. I smashed him, Schaub fumbled and tore a muscle. Out for the game haha.

The first day someone with the raiders tried to read option and watt broke the qb collar bone. It was like the third play of the game lol. I needed to jump on it. 10-8 now

Are you talking about playing against the computer or the guys you're not controlling?
