    Blitz.

    Actually I'm not kidding (not totally anyway), I try to maintian pressure on the QB however I can while leaving my DB's in a 1 deep or 2 deep sets with the CB's in man2man.

    This really plays to the strengths of the Defense allowing the Safeties to roam and play zone, allowing Sam, Pat, and Fletch to man-up short and allowing either Junior or Zach the opprotunities to disrupt whatever the O tries to do.

    Personally I take controll of either JT or O-gun and try to pressure the QB into making mistakes. leaving the LB's and other D-Linemen to worry about the rush. (this helps when the computer tries to go play action on ya.)

    One other thing to be carefull about, if you face guys like McNair or Vick, be certain to run alot of QB Spy plays. Theese guys will eat you alive if you don't leave a spy or concentrate on containment.

    I dunno Marino. Anytime I play my secondary just EATS people alive. I like to use 4-3 or if I think they're gonna pass I like to use the Dime - Flat..it just seems to work for me. You put our guys in Man Cover and you should be pretty safe for the most part. Last time I played (earlier today) I had 5 picks .

    I use JT as well. If I am gonna control a blitzer it's usually Greenwood. He seems a little faster then Seau. Is there anyway to "push" guys down? It seems if I hit speed burst and the swim move or whatever at the same time it sometimes just runs the O-line over. Maybe it's a coicendence..

    well, it you hit the push/burst button as you collide and then try the rip/swim move you can get by guys most of the time.

    I usually have to hit it 3 times before it actually reacts..;\

    I almost just wanna use the "strip" button, because it's somewhat like a swim move .

    There is a learning curve. I went through the same thing as you guys. I was like 30th worst defense Week 7. By end of season I went down to 15th Defense. Year 2, I should be in Top 10.

    There is a learning curve. My pass defense went from 32nd to 19th in about 8 weeks.

    I noticed something that might be useful when you're playing D. When ya play a team that uses 4-3 defense(don't know yet if it works with 3-4 or cover2 yet) use your Quarter sets on 2nd or 3rd down. If ya toy around with them, you'll notice that you can defend the pass pretty well, even better than the nickel packages. On 2nd and 3rd down, I bring my safeties in close coverage and choose a play in the dime or Quarter packages. It seems to disrupt alotta plays. Sometimes I blitz on 1 & 2 down and 3rd I play Quarter.
