View Full Version : 2 things I need help with

1) How do you stop the screens passes? I cannot keep up w/ the HB with my LB, even if I isolate my defense on him. He can still cut and get away from my defenders.
2) How do you stop the CPU when it runs the no-huddle at the end of the 1st half and end of the game? I call a timeout but it keeps running no huddle and finds open receivers. I'm using the Texans and I will play Dime Flats cover 3 or cover 2 man. Either way it finds openings and marches down the field. When I lose games to the CPU it's b/c I can't stop their no huddle (especially teams like Arizona) :(.

Well, On screen plays I like to man up with bump and run put the de in contain and sometimes Ill just use the lb and run to where the screen is setting up. Nothing beats a screen better then haveing a Lb sitting on the recipents hip. As far as the cpu you cant make them stop the no huddle but you should set up defensive audibles like 1 for man 1 for zone cov2 and 1 for zone cov 3....The key is switching up your plays while they no huddle if not your beat.

As far as the CPU, 3-4 SS snake blitz is a good play against the CPU, in fact that's all I run when my opponent quits on me, I like to control the blitzing safety and act like he is going to blitz, but pull him back into coverage, the CPU gets confused. Bad throws, sacks, and INT's happen. Now sometimes they will drive on this, but trust me it's very effective.

In trying different things I've found cover 2 man seems to work well against the HB screen, I control the MLB and roll to the side of the screen like you suggested. I can't stop it for negative yards but I can usually stop it for a minimal gain.
As far as my defensive audibles. I believe I have:
4-3 normal cover 2 man
4-3 normal cover 2
nickel cover 3
dime cover 3
Once they start throwing a lot and doing the no huddle I usually switch to the dime cover 3, the CPU seems to pick the zones apart and march down the field. I lost another close one toda against that darn K. Warner from the Cards, he just throws it all over the field and marches down and wins :mad: This time it was 34-35.

screen play is easy to stop . take notice of what formation they use. Just control ur closer lineman and wait rite behind the back .. if he catches it u dont even have to press anything ul tackle automaticaly rite away for a loss of yards.
