What you need is a blitz scheme where your OLBS go outside the DEs, if you know what way they are running crash to that side, but if you're wrong you could be lookin at being down 6 points off of one run.

If the same as for PS2 and you are talking about Madden 06 then you don't, you can scramble around back there using X (or A on Xbox) to sprint but he automatically tucks after he crosses the line of scrimmage, it's not like last year where you press triangle to drop the icons and now he is like a running back.

IDK about the XBox version, but I know that X on the playstation version is sprint, and there are no X recievers this year (X was replaced with triangle) so it is impossible to throw to him since he doesn't exist. Maybe I said the wrong button, like I said, I don;'t play Madden on XBox, I hate it, but whatever the spring button is SHOULDN'T have a reciever mapped to it, so you press that to sprint around behind the line, then you can do all the RB moves once you cross the line

Same thing in the Xbox game. 06 has no receivers mapped to A. It's the sprint button.

For the defense question. Use the Dime package and use the play where the two inside CBs blitz from the edge, forget what the play is called but I use it all the time with great results. I also sub my two fastest guys to those positions.

Just play a base 4-3 defense with the man under play, and mix up your blitz's from the weak side, make sure you have fast LB's so if its a pitch you can catch the RB from behind, blitz with the LB thats supposed to be covering the RB, It gets you a lot of sacks and stops the run pretty well

OR

Take the safety and put him on the reciever, blitz with the corner, it gets a lot of sacks and stops the run
