Official Xbox 360 Madden '12 Online Franchise Thread OT2 Mr Peyton Goes To Washington

So I have a question for the sack specialists in our league:

What play calling or adjustments do you guys do to get a pass rusher to sometimes literally go unblocked? I love when I'm making pre-snap reads, looks like I've got my offensive line to block the right guy, then I hike the ball and oh this dude's already in your face. Or if they don't go unblocked I notice they are able to get around my tackles extremely easily by engaging them and then suddenly waltzing right around while my tackle stands there pretending to block someone. I noticed this in my game vs. Luke.

Or better yet Wellie I want to know how you can get 26 sacks with one guy. I obviously haven't seen him in action but I should be getting more than what I have.

I spent my last 2 first rounders on pass rushing linebackers who pretty much don't impact my games in any way. Because fuck, if you guys are able to pull that shit with the players you have, I sure as hell should be able to also.

Better hope it is rainy and windy when we play FMT. It is your only chance to beat me. I'm locked in on my passing, and the only thing that stops my offense now are drops and bad weather sending the ball awry!



This is why like you the best, Gold! I believe in you! End your Madden 12 career on a high note!
I will attempt to crush his dreams!



What are "Things Bob has also said about playing Bluemax, eznark, McNeily and AT"?
 
So basically I'm supposed to find an exploit that isn't as obvious since you won't share

Back to the lab!
Luke told me at the beginning of season 1 that if you blitz over your DE, then the AI wigs out and doesn't touch them. Probably try something like that. I guess it only works for 4-3, I can't get jack with 3-4 unless someone tries to scramble.

lol does this even work? I never blitz over the DE who I want to get pressure from. Someone test and report back plz

i suspect this has happened to me a few times in the past few games. i remember bluemax's LB coming in clean on like 3 straight plays but i didn't look at the replay to see.

much like the "that was a bullshit catch animation on the pick!" plays, though, i didn't have enough guys to block him regardless. i was supposed to get sacked on that play and however it occurred is beside the point

I was playing in a 4-2-5 which by default has Curry lined up as a DE, it wasn't a LBer blitz that got you on those plays.
 
I hate you :(

that's most likely the 5th int so far thrown. I think my QB forgot which color jerseys we had on.
GG! Brandon Marshall finishes with 7 receptions for 175 yards, 3 TDs, and breaks Revis' jaw. That was fun, them rookie QBs can be rough! Misi with a sack and 2 picks. Wilson with 2 picks. Munnerlyn with 2 picks. But somehow Cromartie on the losing team gets PotG with 1 int, 1 TD. :jnc
 
You had the GG for sure. Marshall was a slippery bitch out there and at times it seemed like my players didnt even react till after he made the catch.

Madden knew that it was pretty much taking the game out my hands so it gave me some useless PotG award -_-
 
Man... playing the fucking computer is WORSE

Controller number two bites the dust. fucking awesome... now i have to finish this stupid fucking game with a stupid fucking fight pad against the stupid fucking bills


fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
 
never doing that again. Sub or simit... fuck the CPU

restarted the game like 4 times to try and get rid of the ridiculous wind 15-20mph ( it never went away)

rage quit twice (or more... i dont even remember anymore)

broke another controller

and

found out you cant play madden with either a fight pad or an arcade stick
