might be another formation. I remember picking a play and it me caught guard with a pitch back. Come to think about it, I've been playing around with two playbooks, The pass balance and Jacksonville. Been you the Pass B more tho.

Now if EA can just ever get the reverses and draw plays to work we'll be all set.

Madden hates trick plays, so they rarely work. I was elated when I ran an end-around for 10 yards on last year's game.

Oh, and a reverse is different from an end-around. I won't bore you with the difference, though.

I usually dont run the reverse, but last night I tried one and I should have broken it for a TD, but I cut inside the CB to late..........maybe they work :confused:

Anybody see the flea flicker in the Rams playbook

A reverse is when the QB hands off to another player (typically the HB or FB), who then hands it off to the WR. An end-around is when the QB hands the ball directly to the WR (or, rarely, TE).

A double reverse, as the name implies, is when the WR then hands off to another WR coming from the opposite direction. Of course, by the time you've done this, the play is about 15 yards behind the line of scrimmage, and unless you have a WR who is significantly faster than the entire defense (or Tecmo Bowl Bo Jackson), you're doomed to a big loss.

Random trivia is fun!

Is there a double reverse in this years Madden 2005?

Mad-bomber the draw can work for about 3-5 yards, especially when the defense is thinking pass. It's a risky play for sure though. Haven't tried it yet in this years Madden 2005.

Not to be a geek, but I am! I think TMQ (Tuesday Morning Quarterback) put it best.


"It's a double reverse!" To TMQ's knowledge no actual double reverse was run in the NFL this season—a play in which there's a handoff in one direction, then a second handoff coming the other way, then a third handoff back to the original direction. NFL defenders are so fast that in the time it takes a double reverse to develop, players from games held the previous week will have closed on the ball carrier. What announcers call a "double reverse" is usually a reverse, and what announcers call a "reverse" is usually an end-around. A reverse requires a RB to take the ball going one way, then hand off to a WR coming back the other way. To eliminate the risk of a fumble when the running back makes a handoff, NFL teams now usually fake up the middle and have the QB perform the handoff to whoever's coming around. True, defensive players yell "REVERSE!" when they see this action, but only because it is cumbersome to yell "END-AROUND!" Announcers should use correct terminology.

However, my favorite is "Stop me before I blitz again!"

So does it work? I have tried it and it doesn't. I see it in the same foramtion alot but I have also seen it in different formations that not alot of teams have it in. I wonder if that one works better than just the regular ones.
