Madden Created Plays/Formations

Postby joelamosobadiah » Fri Oct 13, 2006 10:17 pm

Got some creative/useful plays or formations you created?

Post them here for all of us to see and benefit from.

I can't seem to get a play that works in a real game. Works fine in the practice, but they absolutely KILL me when I run it in a game. :-t

Well i make a playbook based on a team. For example: I support the RBBC approch (outside of Fantasy Football lol) So lets say for the ... Saints. I will make a split back type formation that has both McAllister in aswell as reggie bush. Run plays designed for both i.g. Bush gets tosses to the out side and McAllister will get more of the hard yards up the middle. Also since both RBs can catch i may have 1 WR run a route with McAllister and Bush. Giving me 7 men up front any plenty of time to find an open man or even sneak it for a 4 or 5 yard gain. I dunno how much sense that makes.

Makes perfect sense. ;-D
I ran a fantasy draft in franchise mode and have Willis McGahee, and Reggie Bush. So that will come in handy. What I have been doing is just have McGahee as my RB and line up Reggie as a WR.

I like to use RBBC too if my team has 2 good RB's, but to do that I just put the power or bigger one in as the FB. (Ex. Dillon - FB Maroney - RB)

I made a T formation, with RB1 directly behind the QB, RB2 directly to his left, and TE1 directly to his right. I run some good sweeps to the right with that one, and then throw in a quick pitch to the left RB when my opponent starts playing the sweep right. If I have a mobile QB, I also like to run a bootleg sneak with all three guys lead blocking.

I have another formation ("Stacked") that is basically the Strong formation with another TE lined up between the TE1 and FB. I run a play called HB Read where I can either cut inside for 6-8 yards or try to hit the corner for a big gain. I have a passing play in the formation called "Crosses" where the TE1 runs a diagonal route to the other side of the formation and the TE2 offset behind him runs a diagonal route toward the sideline. If he's not open, the RB ran a short flat route to his side for some easy yards.

I have an all passing formation ("Firepower") that has the RB lined up a few yards directly behind a WR on the strong side about parallel with the shotgun QB. There's a play that has that RB taking a step back and cutting across the field behind the line. Anyone trying to guard him usually gets caught up in the traffic, and I can dump it to that RB once he clears and pick up some yards.

When he creating plays, I found Out routes work the best, so I suggest using those to an extent. I have another called Safety Attack where one WR tries to split the safeties and the other runs a deep out underneath him. That's usually good for about 15 yards.
