Dropping 11 in coverage would seem to be a pretty poor strategy, considering the QB could just stand there all day waiting for someone to get open.

I agree though, it's very unrealistic. Was it actually 11? Not a single guy rushing?

I watched a bit of your stream when you had it up, but then the quality took a nose dive after a few minutes (I like the highlight videos mroe than the stream personally).


Same. I watched some of the stream versus the Panthers, but the quality was too poor to really get much out of it.

the 11 man coverage came first. he then would drop 10 in coverage and rush one when i was in a 2 wideout one te formation in the 1st q. so in the 2nd q i put in tyrod. He was still winning the whole game and in the 3rd q we lost connection. he made it seem like tyrod wasnt playing until that one drive. in the 3rd which wasnt true

i really dont like to snitich or anything but i am kinda force to in this situation

but when your down by 17 points it takes time to find someone open. so to get a good drive would take time and anyone who plays me i go for the big plays because for some reason the dbs catch better than the WR. we only play 5min q

I would just always send a message saying you are swapping QBs just to be on the safe side no matter what. It takes all of 30 seconds to do.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

I would recommend everyone get the Xbox SmartGlass app so you can send messages quickly and during play. It's available on iPhone, I would guess Android too.

It is a nice app. You could even just have your laptop open by you. There are many options if you don't want to pause it and shoot a quick message.

I can't multi quote from a phone but thanks for the input BV and Troy. I was wondering what the quality was actually like, I'll probably stick to highlights for now.

mog was wrong for not sending a message about switching qbs. but i wouldnt say doo mane's defense was much more than cheese play with 11 man coverage thats insane even 10 is to much. if anything i would say that's fighting cheese with cheese.

9 man coverage is enough to get a job done i would atleast send one guy at the qb with another in qb spy with 9 guys in coverage but seriously all 11 guy i coverage. i would have sent him a message complaining about it if i was mog and if it didnt stop i would have quit.

I didn't do it every play like he says. I did leave a spy and send atleast 1 guy after the qb sometimes as well. Only reason I did that was because he came out in the exact same set each time. It's all good though cause we're replaying at 4EST I think. What I don't get though, is the no-huddling while scrambling 5 wide. Since he was no huddling I didn't really have the time to set "11 man coverage". He was only down 13 in the 3rd, you still got plenty of time no need to no-huddle. Oh and also the people on my defense suck ass so they needed a little extra help imo.

So easy to counter, just redirect your receivers or run the ball.

i know just run the ball or wait for someone to get open, but no1 should be droppin 11. i hate that, i feel u should have to rush at least 2. thats as much of a ranked match move as anything

Hold LT and flick the right stick in the direction you want your receiver to go. It directs the closest receiver to the line of scrimmage.

that is something that should be banned or let people sub in QBs but ONLY IF they are using 11 man coverage when going to 5 wide

yea i mean theres no defensive play in any playbook that has less than 3 players rushing, cuz it would never happen in real life even in hail mary situations. i think its a terrible stradegy too i rarely rush less than 4

actually maybe 9velcro but thats it

I've got a couple plays that rush only 2, though I don't use them. I agree it's a terrible strategy.

I thought the rule was no hotswappin qb during a drive.... mog told me he did it after a kickoff and kept it that way till they disconnected... which under the rules is not wrong cause its a new possession. only those 2 know the truth but just figured I'd throw that out there... I think both of them played pretty shitty and ranked match like from what I've read and heard...

I would really like to know if dropping 10-11 players in coverage is an acceptable counter to a 5-wide offense...cause that would help me SO much against Hemingway lol. I never rush less than 3 regardless of what my opponent is running, I think repeatedly dropping 9 or more is one of the cheesier things you can do in this game.

Even if that's true, and like you say there's really no way for us to know for sure, scrambling instantly on 5-wide formations is also against the rules.

Now, that doesn't mean that dropping 11 into coverage isn't also some ranked match bullshit, and I agree that it is. But two wrongs don't make a right.

Like I said, we'll be discussing whether to amend the rules to cover dropping 10/11 guys into coverage. It really hasn't come up before because honestly I can only remember one or two complaints in league history about someone actually doing it.

not that we need to start "just because they do it in the nfl we should in madden" but as a bills fan I have seen the patriots and other teams with multiple td leads rushing 1 or 2 on a consistent basis in the 4th quarter. I think like everything there is a good counter for anything you could do. I'd say the best defense for only sending 1 or 2 rushers is to not be down by a lot of scores
