Will you guys please teach me to play defense. I have no idea what I am doing. I can score on offense almost every time I get the ball but hell I have to because I suck on defense. I suck so bad that I always go for it on fourth down because I can't stop them on D so I am better off going go it.

I am not completely dumb as I know nickel and dime is for passing downs and the 4-3 and quater is better for run but after that that is about it. I know what QB spy is supposed to do and I know how to play tight bump and run coverage but I don't know when is the best time to do this. What is Cover 2 or Cover 3. What is under man or over man or under 4. Please help me.


Oh BTW I am talking about Madden 2004

Wevie, look for the threads in this forum called "Defensive Woes, and "You have Questions/I have answers". PT is the man with Mad. 2004, and he's been giving us some very helpful tips. I am now 9-0/ Yr.1 with Fins, and nearly unstoppable and I'm playing on the "Pro" difficulty level.

I think using the Dime-Flat works well in passing situations.

I'm the opposite. I'm better on D then O. Also, 90% of the time I play up on the recievers. Especially with our corners.

PT do you have XBOX or what system do you have it on? If you have XBOX Live I may just have to pick it up and school you :lol: .

I'm nasty with RW ;).

Here is what i have found. It works really well for the dolphins. I use man to man cover 2(in the 4-3, nickle or dime depending on how many WR there are). the front four get good pressure so i don't blitz a lot. But mix in a seau or greenwood blitz every now and then to mix it up. If they start to use a lot of slants to beat man on man then run a zone out of the same formation and that sets up a pick bigt time!!!!! That does a decent job for me.

Can't play Madden 2004 on Xbox Live because EA are being money grubbing whores and MS won't let them charge the additional cash to play online.
