So it goes as I've been strugglin to stop the Pass in Madden NFL 2006 and Im wonderin if anyone could help me on how I could stop it.

First game of the year, played the Jets, Coles, McCarriens, and Blaylock all had 100 yards in the game against me.

The Raiderz, Moss had 180 yards receiving on me, couldnt stop him worth a damn.

Fianlly the Broncos, Jerry Rice had 156 yards against me and Smith had 71 yards against me.

I run all the defenses, 3-4, 4-3, Nickle, Dime, Quarter, whatever defense there is, doesnt matter what play I call I still cant stop the pass.

Any ideas here on what I could be doin wrong ?

Not sure if you noticed, but Moss actually DID put 170 yards up on us... not that far off, if you ask me.

I am ranked #1 in league in pass defense through week 13. I am ranked #1 in run defense as well. #1 overall. I have DJ playin lolb, Bell, ROLB, and Mitchell MLB. I blitz alot, especially DJ when there isnt a Tight End lined up on DJ's side I usually blitz him, He has 31 sacks right now. my record is 10-2. I usually run a 4-3, a nickel when there is 3 WR's and dime when there is 4. Man to Man coverage, I usually blitz DJ and Bell. Mitchell at times.Thats how I stop the pass.

What's your secondary depth chart? Is this the same team over on the other forum where you traded away half your secondary?

Oh yeah, I also (on offense) run the ball alot and that takes up a lot of TOP. Holmes averages almost 30 carries a game. Johnson has 5 a game.

one more thing..also if DJ doesnt blitz and hes not supposed to cover anyone but a RB, I usually have him run the middle of the field, that way they dont ever complete passes on me over the middle 10-15 yards. DJ also has 8 INT's.

31 sacks all in his rookie season, seems too unrealistic.

My starters are Surtain and Battle has CB. Wesley and Knight at Safety. Traded away Warfield and McCleon cause I wanted some faster corners, cause Warfield and McCleon were gettin burned.

For Battle in only one of his games as a starter has he got burned and thats against Denver.

Plus after 3 games Patrick Surtain had 5 Int's and Eric Hicks has 6 sacks.

hey, it works. and Im on All-Madden yall cant f**k with the DJ. The most Ive had in one game is seven.Hes so fast on the game. Just line him up right outside the DE, and take a slant towards QB. Like this /. It works all the time.

I've tried that before. RG picks up Hicks and then the RT picks up DJ.

Doesnt work for me, but maybe im not doin it right

well if that happens, um shift the D-Line to where the Tackle will have to block Hicks.Then the RG will probably block Sims...free shot to QB.

Well I may suck at defense but at least im 4-0 after 4 games. Julian Battle just made the game winning pass deflection, cause i was only up by 6 if they had caught it i would've lost.

The game I just played Derrick Johnson had 8 tackles and 2 sacks, Kawika Mitchell 6 tackles, and Rich Scanlon had 4 tackles.

I know Scanlon is the man, but why is he in there? did you create him or is he on there? DJ has 92 tackles, 20 TFL, 31 sacks, 8 INTS, and 8 passes defensed through 12 games.

I created him and put him on there. Funny thing is I just switched to a new defense, called QB Contain and on some of those defenses it had Mitchell at OLB, Scanlon in the middle, and Johnson at OLB.

But in limited backup role he still pulled in more tackles then Kendrell Bell did and Bell is started.

Scanlon's overall on my game is a 76 now, when I created him I made his overall a 72.

I like to keep my rosters as real as possible. I play one game a week on one dynasty. I benched warfield and welbourn for the first 4 games and sat Battle all season. I created all the rooks that made the team and updated all rosters. I am 3-1 with the one loss being Denver. Green has 9 touchdowns and 6 ints. Priest has 450 rushing and gonzo has 30 catches. Johnson is leading team in tackles with 35 and Surtain is a disapointment with no ints. McCleon has 4 and Knight has 2. Allen cant be stopped and he already has 6 sacks. I benched sims after the first game and havnt played Roaf since week one.

I've done that too before, but I didnt like it where they were complaining about playing team and my team morale went down.

Just played Dallas, won 48-3. D gave up 15 total yards. Johnson had 8 sacks, 11 tackles. Bell had INT, so did Warfield. On the Offensive side Green had a horrible game going 11/28 214 yrds, 4 Td's, 2 Int's rating of a measly 77.8 or something. Holmes had 27 carries for 163 yrds, and 2 TD's. Gonzo had 3 catches for 78 yards and 2 TD's, Kennison 6 for 115 and 1 TD. Parker only had one for 14. T-Rich had 1 catch for a TD.

Through 13 games.

Green has 32 TD's but a terrible 34 INT's (yeah pretty bad)
Holmes has 1600 yrd's 20 TD's.
Parker has 900 yards 8 Td's
Kennison 800 yards 7 TD's
Gonzo 750 yards 10 TD's


thats the best I can remember (games off). DJ is #1 for League MVP, Defensive rookie of year, Defensive player of the year, Best LB, Pro Bowl

First thing play with your coach control player management options. Get your CBs and Safeties playing hard hitting football and get your outside linebackers playing more coverage. Get your DTs stuffing the run and DEs pass rushing.

It's hard to be #1 in passing but it can be done. I'm always in the top 3 and finish #1 about half the time out of my franchise. First thing you gotta do is stuff the run on first down. On 2nd and third down blitz a linebacker or DB to the weakside of the formation and run a zone defense. You can do it in man to man but you need really good DBs. If you blitz from the left side of the offense (your defenses right side) and you have 4 down lineman you need to either flip the play or slide your d-line over otherwise your blitzer will get picked up really easy.

Defenses I prefer to run against the pass include 4-3 outside linebacker fire, 3-3-5 nickel cover 2 or cover 3 (blitz a LB or DB), quarters cover 2, 3 deep quarters MLB blitz, dime cover 2 or cover 3, dime DB blitz. If you're running with the chiefs substitute DJ in as a middle linebcker on dime and quarters formations.

Most of the generic blitzes in your defensive formations are run out of mainly man coverage which is why I prefer to pick a zone coverage and just blitz someone out of it.

Alternatively, - this is kind've a bullshit way to play the game but pick any defensive formation where you have 4 downlineman. Control your right defensive end and move him all the way over to the other side of the left defensive end and simply rush the paser at the snap of the ball. As long as there's not a tight end on that side you'll be able to pile up a shitload of sacks playing like that but like I said it's kind've a BS way play.

How the hell do you do that ?

hello, you're using the CHIEFS D!

Seriously though, line up in Nickel on every play, do not roll safeties and do not bump and run, unless of course you drafted good bump CB's. Cover 2 is good, or Blitz one ofr your CB's.
