Out of the Blue

Well, my daring picks last week were as almost disastrous as could be imagined once the word "daring" entered the conversation. My only winner was the Seahawks, but that's good enough for me, since I've heard enough of RG3's perspective just how great everybody thinks he is to last a long time. We still have Ray Lewis doing that, but at least he's done more to earn the enormous self-respect that's his favorite topic of conversation.

Here's what I was able to piece together of last week's results: Verno 4-0; LiTh, Sepharo, Creston, Rigs, and Mag 2-2; and Blue, Jivaro, and Cutter 1-3.

Here goes for the divisional round: Broncos, Seahawks, Patriots, and Packers.

@Half-Elf: I am not a manly man, but I am a Madden addict and I have two tips. (Both of them are assuming you are playing on a skill level lower then All-Madden)

1) Play a zone defense most of the time. Just pick the play and let it go, don't try to control anyone. Get more "hands-on" after you get a feel for the game. If you do go man 2 man on defense, blitz and control a linemen or linebacker. Particularly on lower quality quarterbacks with a lack of footspeed.

2) On offense, play to your team strengths, just like in real life. With that in mind, it might be a good idea to start with a team that has a solid running game. For example, if you play with Houston you have two great running backs. Run them on first down. If it is 2nd and long, consider running again. If its 2nd and short, try a pass. This will usually put you in 3rd and short situations without having to force long passes and keep your offensive drives going. Since your quarterback and primary receivers are all quality, it will make the learning process easier. As time goes by and you get used to the speed of the game passing will become easier.
