Cheats, Codes & FAQs
Do not draft a running back because Reggie Bush will not be selected until the ninth round. You can choose him late and he is amazing. If you do the highlight stick he is unbeatable. Also for your first draft pick, it must be a quarterback. Make sure he is ranked at least 94 overall. Even a perfectly created quarterback will not get you Brady Palmer or Manning.
Get Better Tight Ends
To get better tight ends ( without changing stats ) go to rosters, and select hines ward (wr, steelers) or keyshawn johnson (wr, panthers) and change their position. Keyshawn Johnson will have a 97 overall (originally 88) and Hines ward will have a 99 overall (originally 97). PLEASE NOTE: 1. Hines ward will still have a 99 overall if you changes his catching (most important stat for tight end according to madden guide) to 79 (originally 93). 2.This works with many other wr with good rbk (runblocking) but those are the most important.
When you think one of your players may be injured on offense, hurry the play up and they will get back up.
When on defense, switch to one of the safeties in a zone coverage and pick up on a receiver. Stay about five to ten yards away from the receiver. When the quarterback throws the ball to that receiver, run towards the receiver. Press Y when you get in front of the receiver, just as the ball is getting there.
