Also how the #$# do you run screes. EVERYTIME, the dline gets to me before the RB opens up. This is on all pro.

I can't remember ever being able to run screens successfully in Madden, at with least their specific "screen" plays. It's like the offensive line just totally craps out and if you even manage to get the ball to the running back there is hardly ever any space.


A few years back I used to use screens all the time, I believe it was '04, basically had about a 3500 yard season from my RB :-b

I think back in '04 or possibly '05 screens were the only plays I ever ran :-D

Use them on blitzing downs and wait for the defense to get in your backfield and just tap the button to lob the pass over the D to your RB and he should be golden. If the D isn't getting enough penetration I usually don't even bother dumping it off to him, usually screen plays have receiver options as well that i go to if that happens.

I think I've finally gotten the Online Play on the Wii to work consistently. My EASports persona is ballin999 so if anyone wants to set up a online game on the Wii send me a PM or add me as a friend or whatever you have to do.

I've been playing as the Pats and kicking some ass ;-D A lotta defense, and a lotta ball control offense. Having a little trouble passing but my last two games were against the Steelers and Chargers so maybe that was just good defense.

anyone else having trouble with the 90 yard run and pass Achievement? that one's tough.

And all things considered (glitches and what not) I enjoy it, even though I haven't played it much the last few weeks...Halo 3.

BTW if you guys wanna set up a game (you'll probably kill me as I haven't been playing much) my Gamertag is FFGuru13.

Hey I went to pit a CPU Vs. CPU today and I couldn't figure out how to get it to the cinematic camera angle that my older Madden always went to. By cinematic angle I mean like you're watching the game on TV or something instead of from the Madden angle as if you're playing. I'm using the PC version. I have no idea why they would remove that camera angle and if they did that blows because I used to love watching some action from TV like angles from time to time. Am I just missing something or did they remove that camera angle... If so, WHY?!

Madden games could be so much better...
