Easy touchdowns

  • Select Rich Gannon as your QB, Pete Wheeler as your RB, and any wide receivers of your choice. On offense, select #1 and choose "Outside Handoff". Give the ball to Pete Wheeler and have him run it up the sidelines. About 95% of the time, he will break away for a TD if you use it all four downs.
  • Get two receivers on each side. Make one do a slant route and one a fly. The one doing the slant will be wide open.
  • Select a running play that has a receiver running a route to the opposite side of the field as the run. Hike the ball, then run backwards with the quarterback. He should not give the ball to the running back, but the running back will still make his run like a route. He will be uncovered. Wait for the running back to get down the field awhile, then throw. If he catches the ball and is fast enough, it will be a touchdown. This is the best way to get yards catching for your custom to increase skill points.

Perfect player

In order to obtain a perfect player, you must do the following: Earn 1 stat point. Delete every stat on 1 attribute (Speed, Catching, Tackling, etc.). Add the stats to any other ones desired; but do not add to your deleted stat. When you reach the team screen, it should seem as if you never deleted your column, but you will still have the stats that you added. Note: You may want to save the game just before it ends.

Pablo speaks English

Go into season mode and put Pablo Sanchez on your team. The other players do not matter. Once you get to the team photo, click on Pablo Sanchez. His card should pop up on the left side of the screen. Hold [Shift] and click on his card. Pablo should start speaking in English.

Save season mode game

To save during a game in season mode, call a timeout and go to "Change Playbook". When that screen appears, select the "Save" button. A screen should appear with a list of saved games. Choose to save again. You can now quit the game and return to that point at any time.
