Advice on how to beat someone on Madden 12 that just passes every down (shotgun)
 

 
I'm playing my brother on franchise and it's taking all the fun out of it for me. I like to build my team like I think a real franchise would. I have a really good defense and a good running game. My QB is good, but my receivers are average at best (80s).

Anyway, all my brother does is run the shotgun with four receivers (he drafted a good QB and has three good WR (calvin johnson, julio jones [95], and a receiver he drafted [93])

I have good CBs (both are 94ish i think)...

Anyway, it doesn't matter what I do. Since he's in the shotgun, I cannot get pressure on him for sh*t. It seems like if he's in shotgun, I can blitz and nobody gets to him in time. It doesn't matter what defense I pick. I've been running Sub and Nickle (mostly sub) trying to stop him. I'll run zone or man and it doesn't matter. I can't get pressure on him in time to make it worth blitzing and if I just lay back he can sit back and wait for his receivers to out run me.

Anyway, it's really k!lling Madden for me. I tried with a 4-3 for our first year trying to get more pressure but it was terrible. I traded Suh for a first round pick and started running 3-4 (have Raji as my DT) and I can do fine if he runs anything other than Shotgun. He saw that he beats my a.ss when he uses Shotgun, so now he runs it every play.

Any advice on how to beat him? I have a good defensive team, but it just doesn't matter... I have Von Miller (90ish), Clay Mathews (like 94), Lawrence Timmons (90s) and a MLB I drafted (92)... I have Devin Mccourtey and Patrick Petterson as my CB (94s)... I have Eric Berry (99) and Byrd as FS (high 80s)... my ends are drafted guys but in the 90s..

anyway, help...

Try bump coverage. That usually throws the timing off or it knocks the receivers off their routes.

If he throws deep use a man zone coverage with 3 or 4 CBs in it and try to user pick his sh*t

you suck man. if he using shotgun with 4 receivers, why the fu*k you using nickel? nickel is designed for 3 receivers. you using that will have a LB matching up with a receiver.

You need to use dime and quarter formation, dime is designed for 4 receivers, quarter is designed for 5. match it up with those plays, corner blitzes, man, zone. if he tends to use slants alot, try cover 2 in those packages

EVERY...fu*kING...THING. I can't establish a run game, I get burned on defense damn near every time. I every time I try to pass, the pass just gets batted down or picked off (I don't leave the pocket that often so I don't do dumb sh*t like trying to let my receivers get into the endzone before I decide to pass), but it happens every time.

as for running, just be patient and wait for the blocks to develop. if you on a run play with the fullback, follow him through the whole til he makes a block a rush right pass him. avoid defenders using jukes.

passing, need to lead the receiver.dont do lobs. bullet passes and lead the receiver by the left analog stick to throw away from the defender.

Okay so it's not just simple mashing the button, I have to choose to throw the ball away from where the defender is at? So say my receiver ran an out-route to the sideline and the defender follows, if I move my left analog stick to the left, he'll catch the ball somewhere near the middle of the field?

say your receiver is ahead of the defender running a slant. throw the ball at the direction your receiver is running (left stick + pass button)

dont know if you know this, holding a pass button is bullet passes, tapping it is lobbing passes

if you cant get to the qb, something is wrong.

if dude is going deep. i run cover 4, but i man up on top reciever or main guy he throws to. man up on HB to watch him in the flats. and i user the MLB and watch the middle.

Yeah the tap and hold has been in madden as long as I can remember. Definitely gotta know the difference between which you need to use. Thanks for the info bro. You got madden for PS3 or 360?

Alright.

I like to play as the MLB. The problem is when I do that, I can cover the middle pretty well, but then he just eats me up with the wide outs. When I switch to the CB (usually on Calvin) he won't throw it to him, but then just throws it to Julio Jones or his rookie WR. I do switch to the other guy when the ball is thrown, but his receiver literally has my guy beat by at least a few inches on the screen every time.

I don't use Nickle when he has shotgun. I was using my 3-4 and Nickle when he was running the Singleback. I did fine with that, but when he switched to shotgun, I couldn't do sh*t.

Also, is dime renamed to Sub on here now? My playbook doesn't have a dime package (been using the Jets and Packers playbook).

So, from what I've read, just throw some man press on them? I can try that and see if it helps. He really just k!lls me with slants and outs/ins. He doesn't beat me deep too often. It's just those little passes. He has fast receivers, so they seem to be open every damn time.

unless i know i can put my guy in position, i dont user my CBs. i played a guy last night who constantly tried to control the secondary, and i burned him every single time with andre johnson. im trying to win, so some things i let the computer handle.

Yeah, I do what Clenz suggested but I mostly control the safety after I make all my adjustments calls. The safety is usually the deep man so I can cover anything deep if a CB is beat to anywhere on the field. The corners are in press/bump coverage to shut off any quick or timing routes, the LB is working the middle/underneath stuff and my linemen are doing something different every play but the goal is to get after the QB.

It sounds like you are playing off of everything and he's just nickel and diming you down the field based on your second post. At first I thought he was beating you deep easy on every play
