Hey What are you Professionals doing to combat this? I am not a Pro baller by any stretch of the imagination. 4-6 Online. Though I am proud to say that last loss was because I wanted to try to squeeze one in late Tuesday night and got disconnected when EA servers went down for maintenance. So much for "Your Loss and DNF will not Count"
But anyway. I am doing OK vs the run. But people are killing me on long ball to fast WRs. I admit I do use Tennessee. What are we now in Madden? A 69? I know I am not that good of a player and I am already handicapping my self from the start game screen. But Hey I was a College Football fan till we got a team in Nashville. So I'll Live and die with the Titans. I also don't put in Young and scramble from sideline to sideline either. I used Volek till new rosters. Tonight I used Collins.
But so far I'm on a 3 game streak vs people about the same skill as me but the games are close. My offense is pretty realistic in the sense I pound the ball and pass when it's there. It also helps that I don't have a receiver that out runs any corners. Most of my long passes my WR has been caught from behind after the catch. But for real I need to stop a lot of the 3rd/4th and long conversions I am giving up. Now I am having success blitzing, but when I play a guy that actually knows something about football he'll pass where I'm blitzing from. Luckily I have played brick heads that go for it on their own 16 when it's 4th and 19 and get sacked looking for the go to guy 50 yards down field.
Is it stick skills I can develop in practice mode? Or will my choice of the Titans hold me back here.?
