the only real way to play defense on this fricking game is to run the ball and run the clock and pray for an interception. Stopping the run is easy but zone coverage is so fricking bad you have to stay in man 24/7
This is basically what I try to do with some blitzes peppered in. There is a blitz on 4-3 stacked where it just rushes the outside backer which is great for 3rd and long situations. I am in like the top 10 in rush defense and mid 70's on pass defense
I think the big thing is getting them in 3'rd and long situations, I still get beat a lot of the time here, but can usually stop them for about a 4th and 1.
I've realized the big thing on offense especially when trying to run the ball is to make audibles. I feel like every time I come out of the huddle with a run assigned they have a blitz set up in the direction I am trying to go.
This is the first game I feel like I can successful run a damn counter though.
