there's no magic button you can hit to automatically make you beat the lineman. like dude said, you have to use the right stick to pull of the different line moves. also know what type of rusher you have and pay attention to matchups. you can use the formation packages at the playcall screen to try and get yourself a better matchup against a weaker offensive lineman

Any tips on the free agent bidding. By the time I look St the players available a lot are already signed to other teams. I got a dynasty with my brother and it is seriously impossible to do bidding for two teams

Just think about what you need before you go in there. Free agency should never be about who's the best available so you should always go in knowing what you want. Another big part is knowing how much you want to pay for them. Take a look at your own roster beforehand to see how much you're willing to spend to sure up a certain position. For instance, I desperately needed another OLB to go opposite of Clay and I was willing to pay big money for one. Clay's current contract in my franchise (5 year $30 million) isn't necessarily chump change and for a player of his caliber I'd gladly pay the premium. The same would be true for the linebacker on the other side if he is as good. So I use Clay Matthews' contract as a threshold. So knowing that, I enter free agency and immediately look at all applicable positions. Not just OLB, but MLB and 4-3 defensive ends as well (they translate well between positions). Go in and immediately look at their age and overall. It helps if you know these players and know how they tend to play in real life (IE a fast pass-rushinglinebacker is great for a 3-4 on the game). Age is important because you don't want to spend a ton of money on someone who'll retire soon or who'll start degrading. Then you look at price and if you like what you see, bid. Honestly this process doesn't take longer than a few seconds because with the tips provided above you've already eliminated a majority of the thinking. All that's left to think about is age and price and that can be determined in the snap of a finger.

TL;DR version - don't go into free agency blind. Know what you want to get out of it and go into it expecting to not get what you want. Don't spend too much time watching other teams drive the price up on a player if you see a price you like. Bid on him right there and then let them counteroffer. After you have bid on a player, don't go from position to position checking the status on them. They have an "offers placed" section so you can keep an eye on all of them at the same time. Each player has about 1:30 before they sign and you should be able to go through all the positions you want in well under 30 seconds. If you go in there like a kid in a candy store, you're going to be disappointed because you won't be able to take home all the candy no matter what.

i have mixed feelings about the graphics. sometimes it looks better, then other times it looks like some ps2 sh*t. like the kick offs.

one thing i like about it is, if my WR is open. HE IS OPEN. last year he would look wideeee open then you throw it and some how he is magically double covered.

crying about a halftime show? who the fu*k watches that, thats something the first time you get the game you watch, then you just X it. i x it fast a muhfu*ker anyway.

CONS:
i hate the tackling kinda, i hate how they always fall so forward (i no it helps me on offense) but when im on D is annoying as sh*t.

i hate the new kicking system. last year was so much better

i hate the noise it makes everytime you highlight a player

i hate how sh*tty the plays look. it looks like some ps2 sh*t. like the actual "playbook"

i hate how madden will never realize we want realistic highlights at the end of the game, not some random 1 yard carry that ment nothing.also other game highlights. that would be awesome

but overall i like it. I never cry about madden i just buy it the first day, and ride it out till next year. So all the "cons" im not crying about it just my personal review of whats good whats bad
As far as the have time show. The Nfl is big on presentation. The half time recape is a huge part of the overall game. Just sucks that EA does not understand this and 2k does. EA does not understand how much the presentation makes the whole experience of the game great. As far as the game goes I think its ok did it warrant going buying right now I think it all depends on if a person has money to waste.

I'm about ready to be done with online play. Tired of running into the eagles EVERY TIME I want to play. That sh*t gets old. I'll stick to online franchise and wait until mid-season where everyone is done with the Eagles high.
I play the Eagles a sh*t load too but they r easy to beat.
