I've got my offense game now but I'm having a little trouble with defense. I've never played high school football and never really studied football defensive schemes...so in Madden I pretty much play Cover 2 and Cover 3, which doesn't always work. I'm opening up talk to the gurus out here for a little help.
-What's a good scheme to start on a 1st & 10 when your opponent will most likely run, but possibly throw a pass (75%/25%)?
-What's a good scheme on a short-yart 2nd & 5 or 3rd & 5 when your opponent will probably run?
-What's a good scheme when your opponent might throw a long pass?
-What's a good scheme when your opponent lines up in I-form?
-What's a good scheme when your opponent lines up in Single-back form?
-which player do you usually "control" before the snap? Do you play a DL and try to go after the QB, or a DB and roam the field looking for that interception?
-when the ball is thrown, do you switch to the nearest defender and try to pick the interception, or switch to a guy farther down the field to try stop him from breaking out for a TD?
What are some of your favorite "can't miss" schemes?
I play as the Bears mostly.
Thanks in advance!
