Which player should I user-control on defense?
I receive this question often, and we recently broke it down on TWIM 72. Many players have gotten into a habit of controlling a defensive lineman against the computer and are now, years later, still afraid to get beaten downfield. All of the top Madden players know that to win, you must user a player in the back seven to maximize how much ground you can cover.
You can always cover more ground than the computer, jump your opponent’s route easier, and you can maximize a lower rated player who has great athletic ability but lacks awareness. You may get beaten a few times early, but by starting now you will be making big plays in no time, especially with the new ballhawk in Madden NFL 13.
