    The Rams Video Playbook is out!

    Many times the game of Madden comes down to the your ability to
    handle the sticks and force the game into giving you certain
    animations. The Jet Pack, Rocket Catch, Strafe Catch, etc. have
    defined Madden the last couple of years.

    This is fine if you are really good at pulling off these
    techniques. But what if you go up against somebody that has better
    stick than you? The defense has an advantage as it can still strafe
    while that ability has been removed from the offense.

    If your whole game is about the Rocket Catch, you could be in for a
    world of hurt against a highly skilled opponent. In addition, there
    are a group of players out there who just have never mastered the
    Rocket Catch, or just don't want to run that type of offense.

    If you fall into any of these categories, then PhillyRon has come
    to your rescue. We just put the finishing touches on our latest
    product...The Ram's Video Playbook.

    With close to 4 hours of video breakdowns, PhillyRon helps you
    develop an offense that is based on getting your receivers open
    enough to hit without manually catching. If you have great stick
    you'll be just that more deadly. If you don't, then you can still
    move the ball and crush defenses.

    For more info about the guide (and a FREE video breakdown), visit
    http://www.maddenvideoplaybook.com/rams.html

    Enjoy!

    Bert

    P.S. If you like to run under Center, then this guide is a must for
    you. Ron has tested these plays against the nastiest blitzes that
    his crew could throw at him and they came through with flying colors.

    I hope all of you enjoy the guide and with the new format we can continue to make the product even better for you. I will be updating the book on a weekly basis. Im working with Bert and Kobra on finding a good update day. Filmroom is Tuesday, so I want to make sure we work around that date as well as Kobra's days if he has a set date.

    Hey, I noticed the sample video involves rocket catching, I thought the guide was not focused on that. Can we see a non rocket catch sample video? Thank you for your time.

    The guide is not built around plays for the rocket catch but instead based around creating open spaces all around the field. I did get the animation based on the team used. Both the Chargers and Titans are RC friendly. to be honest the Chargers do it without you touching the receiver.
    This is where the two roads meet. If you're a player that does not rely on the RC then this guide will give you plenty of schemes to work an offensive game plan. If you are a guy that finds yourself going to the rocket, even though you see 3 and 4 defenders around your receiver, then this guide will help you open your eyes and look at all the spacing you have on the field. For both players you will gain a little of the aspect that you dont use. I play a balanced style of play. I will Rocket if need be, to show the threat and Dot you all over the field with open routes. Once you get sick of all the open areas then you will not send 3 defenders to my receiver and then I can Rocket or take the easy route. Bottom line is, on O, I'm in control, not the defense.

    Thanks guys, the new sample video is great and really opened my eyes to the concept of how many defenders are occupying a certain space as opposed to trying to read coverages. I can see how easy it is to dictate to the defense when you are thinking in these terms. Can't wait to watch the rest of the videos.

    VG's Rams Video Playbook Breakdown by PhillyRon

    I'm a firm believer that in order to implement an offensive play into your gameplan, it must have the versatility and weaponry to match up against any defense - and also be simple and fast developing enough that it can be applied in high level play without making me feel that I have to play flawlessly on every down. This video playbook has so many plays that attack the defense at multiple levels - and the concepts have the complexity that make them difficult to deal with, but their execution has a simplicity that makes offense very easy and consistently productive. It utilizes a balance of power O with spread and compression that will allow specialists and balanced players alike to add firepower and depth to their offenses - without giving any clues as to what is coming next. This playbook breakdown is absolutely tremendous.

    I've been using the Run Balanced Playbook for most of 09 and anyone who knows me knows that I don't switch playbooks easily, but I'm going to switch to the Rams Playbook and see how far these concepts will take me.

    with Video books we can continue to update so depending on what we do next season, we can deal with that then. If the game doesn't change that much then all of this will continue to work. Remember this book is not based around animation, but more concepts and ways to set up an attack. You can take that with you from year to year and even crosover platforms.

    Thanks for the kind words Gav. You know I strive for perfection, and I expect all who have the guide, to expect perfection. That way we are heading toward the same goal, and I can continue to update the book according to how the users are working within it.

    For the record, PhillyRon...

    To rocket outs....throw a left trigger pass up when the receiver is near the sideline. Click on and hold down and Y...

    hey, just curious if these spacing concepts apply to other books. The sample vid seems interesting since I've been going with the coverage read, but the spacing stuff looks pretty cool. I really like my new england playbook so I was just curious.

    Flipside37: concepts work no matter what book you use. So they should also work in your NE book.

    CoolFinity: Personally I like a team with two scat backs and that way I can start to add the Back out at receiver and add a whole other dimension.
