I just noticed this rule.

Due to conflict of interest I will yield my opinion on this as I am probably the biggest offender of this rule and perhaps the reason why it's currently listed.

I do feel, as I said before, if someone is moronic enough to do these things during gameplay then they leave themselves open to many other weaknesses thus, penalizing themselves without us having to over-govern ourselves.

For instance, when I pull a D-linemen off the LOS and back into coverage, pre-snap, that leaves a huge gap on the D-Line for the opposing team to run clearly through. All one would need to do is do a run play to the side of the vacated defenseman.

While developing my game it was evident to me that very rarely do people run heavy or even run half the time. Most human opponents thrive off the passing game and pass on almost every down, thus me having to adapt by dropping back an extra D-linemen in coverage.


My feeling is that if your opponent doesn't exploit your weaknesses then what would traditionally be a weakness is now a strength.


I'm fine with whatever rules are made or changed...I just like matching up against other human players.

I'm fine with keeping the rules the way you have it. I like playing a somewhat realistic game. This is one of the reasons why I dislike those people that play with the scrambling QBs ALL THE TIME (and I'm glad no one that I've played so far has done this in this league and I thank you all for it). While everyone wants to win, it just takes away from the game when people win on fluke plays and glitches and whatnot.

I haven't heard any complaints from anyone so rest assured this isn't directed at you. Do you run nano blitzes?

No...I don't know any. I used to about 4 Madden's ago but I haven't come across any for this year's.

I do control a D-Lineman out of regular formation and bring him back into coverage, pre-snap, when I believe it's going to be a passing play...which is most of the time against human players.

A lot of human players don't find the run game exciting enough to develop their game around it or mix it in more than they do. It's odd too because I'll find out they pass almost every down and end up stopping their offense cold. Then I'll look at the stats at the end of the game and see that when they rushed they averaged 5+ yards a carry.


That's a first down every two carries...why wouldn't you rush if you were that successful on the ground. Some people just don't have the patience for the strategy of football.

Re: Madden '10 xbox 360 league

The point of the rule is to get rid of nano blitzes, but nobody does them so it's just a precautionary rule more than anything.

Re: Madden '10 xbox 360 league

I really have no problem running with the Skins if it's all the same. Unless someone else wanted to run with them.

Re: Madden '10 xbox 360 league

Well season's over for me and I'd like to congratulate D'BOYZ a.k.a. Don Canab for a helluva game. It was a defensive struggle, and Don Canab did a superb job shutting down Ray Rice and the Ravens running game. I had a chance to take the lead late in the game after I picked off Romo early in the 4th quarter, but I had to be impatient and tried to throw a deep pass downfield that was promptly intercepted.

Re: Madden '10 xbox 360 league

yeah Rush after you intercepted romo early in the 4th with onlky a 4 point lead I tought shit I'm in trouble now and guess you wanted to go with a go route because I was playing a lot of cover 2 in the game because of your consntant screens.

I guessed right and that was game


I just found out of the changes of the rules I don't even know what's a nano blitz I played balance offense it works to keep defense honest and don't have guys pulling their defense into coverage or blitzing all from 1 side.

And the run been good 4 me except against Ruhskins.

Great season Guys hope we play another maybe more members join

I thought we were going to do a draft and everything. Is that not the case because I was looking forward to that.

If we have a draft I'll want to be the same team that I was this past season and if we don't then I won't mind selecting another team to play with.


So yeah...what are we doing?
