NFL Superstar mode


Due to the fact that the punt blockers do not like to block very much, you should select the "Punt Block" formation instead of any other punt return formation. With the "Punt Block" formation, the punting team will not be spread out, therefore allowing your blockers to somewhat block for you; which in turn will give you more time to field the ball and have a little space to start something big.

Onside kicks

This trick works with any kicker. When you are kicking off, select "Onside Kick" when the return team is switching formation. When they are set, take the power bar all the way to the top, but do not select it. Bring it all the way down so that the power is at 31. Next, make your accuracy 97 to 99. The ball will hit the ground and go up straight up in the air every time. Have one of your Kick Off that is close to the ball sprint toward it. This makes all your players follow, and you will get it every time.

Easy sacks

Be a defensive lineman and back up a few feet. When the play starts, immediately run forward and hitsick an offensive lineman. He will fall down and your person will still be running fast towards the quarterback. Then, sack him.

Pause game play, then go to the settings. Go to the penalties, then turn off offsides. You will now be able to hold [Run] and never cross the line of scrimmage. Grab a linebacker and set a new record for sacks in a game.

Line up in the 4-3 defense and run the LOLB <player's name> Blitz, and use it every play. You will get between five and ten sacks per game. This is also a good way to develop young linebackers.

Go to the settings and turn off offsides. Get a fast runner, go to the line of scrimmage, and keep running. He will be running in place. When the QB calls hike, he will run past the defenders and get a sack. This works about 80% of the time.

Easy touchdowns

Take the best wide receiver on your team and put him in the tightend position. Audible his route so he does a fly (straight) route. Because he has such a low overall rating, they might just have a line backer on him or he might not even be covered. Throw it to him and he will easily be able to burn the defense.

Before playing a game, whenever you are selecting your jersey choose a different playbook. Select the "NE-Coach" playbook. On offense, first down or any down (works best for fourth and long), make sure you have a fast wide receiver like Santana Moss or Randy Moss. Choose the "SIngleback- Twin TE WR" formation. Next, select the play "PA Rollout". Audible all your players to do a five yard in, except for the optioned WR (first string) and TE on the right-hand side. Snap the ball and roll out to your right. Keep rolling out and wait until the play develops, which only takes a short time. Throw the ball to the optioned WR once he is wide open. If there is a CB waiting there to intercept the ball, just lob the ball to your TE who will always be wide open. About 90% of the time the WR will be wide open (although he may have one CB directly behind him covering; throw the ball regardless if he is very fast). This should result in a gain of about 17 yards. Do not overuse this play. Usually if the WR is very fast, he will burn the CB, LB, SS, etc., catch the ball, and run for a touchdown. If the ball gets knocked down or intercepted, it is probably because you did not execute the play properly. This play must be executed very well for it to work. You should try practicing it with your franchise team/Superstar team before actually using it in a game. The Redskins are recommended for this play, because they have a good QB and Santana Moss is fast.

Easy 2 points

After you score a touchdown, go for two. Select the play "FB Run". Snap the ball, run up a little, then dive into the endzone. Your fullback should dive over the linemen and go into the endzone. This works about 95% of the time.

Easy Madden Tokens

Go to "Features" at the main menu. Select "Historic Teams" and you can adjust any of the teams' player's stats. Set the "Speed", "Awareness", and "Tackling" to "0". Save that team as an exported team and you can select that team to play against in All-Madden for an extremely easy win.

Touchdown on goal line

If you throw a touchdown pass and your receiver catches it on the goal line and it is ruled a touchdown, it will add a touchdown to your stats. If the other coach challenges the touchdown and it is called back and put on the inches line to the goal, you will still have thrown and caught a touchdown.

Easy blocked field goals and punts

When playing against the CPU and it is a punt or field goal situation, switch to the end player on defense. If the opposing punt team is in a regular punt formation, select punt block on defense. The offense will adjust to a protection formation. If not, this is easy. Before the last player makes his adjustment, he puts his hands on his knees. If you begin to charge at the kicker you should not get a penalty if timed correctly. You will get an extra jump on the kicker and should tackle him or block the punt or field goal.

Recommended defense

Pick a Nickel defense and go to Overstorm Brave. When your defense goes to the line, move your defensive line out, your linebackers in, and your defensive backs in. Select any of the defensive lineman or linebackers. This will work over 85% of the time.

Easy training camp points

When on offense, select an offense with three receivers. Trip Bunch in Single Back formation works very well. Put the defense on goal line Zone CB cover. By doing this, no one rushes your QB, and once your receiver gets past the zone, they are left unguarded in the endzone for a guaranteed 48 points per play almost all of the time. This should work with most short zone coverages and does not take many attempts to learn which receiver to pick, mostly anyone running a long slant.

Increase salary cap

Use the following trick to increase your salary cap by millions. This works with or without fantasy draft. First, completely simulate the draft (faster) or you can pick your players yourself. Trade for all the players you want. After satisfied with your team , have one extra player in every position. Select a player, go to "Edit Player", then to "Information". Go down to position and change the players position. Then, release the edited player. Resign the player (his wanted salary is a lot cheaper). Do this to all your players except the extra ones, which you should get rid of. For an great FB, turn Jamal Lewis (HB) into a FB. All line backers make good DEs. Turn QBs into WRs (except M. Vick, who should be turned into a FS). Turn HBs, FBs, and TEs into MLBs. Turn all OL into DEs. Turn all DL into OL. Turn all LBs into HBs. Turn all WRs into HBs. Turn all DBs into WRs. WRs, SSs, FSs, and CBs, are difficult to do this with trick. First, you have to have them TEs for one year, then in the next offseason turn them into LBs for a year. You can then release them, resign them, then turn them back to what you had them at originally.

Staying under the salary cap

Use the following trick to keep a good player under the salary cap for a long time. When signing players, sign them for seven years. Give them nothing for a signing bonus. Give them the minimum they will accept for the seven year contract. Your player will then have a seven year contract with the same salary for those seven years. The salary cap will go up every year but their salary will remain the same, so you will actually have more room under the cap for your other players over the following years. When drafting a rookie, also sign him for seven years. Give him $70,000 for bonus and give him the minimum for the contract. By doing this, you will also save on the rookies for a long time. Once in a while your players will holdout but it is worth it in the long run. If you get fed up with your higly paid player or get a better one cheaper, you will be charged nothing in penalty the following season.

Sign created player with high attributes for three years

When you create a player, make him a free agent. Then, get his attributes up to 75. Next, sign the player for any team desired. Go to that team's rosters and edit his attributes. You can make it as high as 99. When you go to franchise mode with the team the player you created will be on the team with a contract for three years.

Easy first round first pick

Do the following in franchise mode to get a good rookie draft pick. Go to create a player. Make his age 45. Set his years pro at 27. He does not need a name, leave it at "New Player". Skip over "Build", "Appearance", and "Equipment". Go to attributes and set "Awareness" to 99. Then, go to "Throw Power" and "Throw Accuracy" and make them both 99. Exit and save your created player. Then, sign the player. Trade him to the team with the first round first pick. You should now have the first pick in the draft, almost 99% of the time.

Use the following trick to get the first pick in every round in the draft. First, turn off the trade deadlines. Then, trade all of your picks with the team with the worst record before the wild card week. You will get all of their picks, and if you have a good season, you can even trade one of your picks for two of theirs.

Get your team in first place at a good record at week 13 to 16. Try to get about twelve wins. Then, go to "Standings" in "Play Week" to learn which team is worst. Go to "Trade Player" and select your first round pick. Go to the worst team and select their first and second round picks. Next, go to the second worst team and trade your second, third and fourth picks for their first and fourth round pick.

Create low paid all-star QB

Create a punter or kicker with all his attributes at maximum, including passing. You will sign him for a low salary simply because he is a kicker. Then, set him as the starting quarterback on the depth charts as the season begins. You will now have the best kicker/punter and QB in the league. You may also maximize all passing attributes and take the kicking attributes down to sign him at an even lower price. This is most recommended if you only rarely kick.

Getting good players

Use the following trick to get a great team in franchise mode without a high salary cost. Start a new franchise. Pick a team. Do a fantasy draft and pick all the worst players. Then, release all of them and make your team from scratch, through create-a-player mode. Once done with the height, faces, etc., do not change the attributes. Save the player and sign him. Once you sign him, go back to create-a-player. Select his name and change all his attributes to maximum. Repeat this until you have a stacked team. The reason that all the worst players were selected is to keep you from having a high cap penalty during the next season. Note: This will take a few hours to complete.

Before going into franchise mode, go to "View Rosters". Go to any player that you want on your fantasy team. Next, edit that player and go to the "Information" screen. Change the player's position to something different than what they started at. For example, edit Randy Moss and change his position from "WR" to "HB". This will make his overall stats for the new position low, because they do not play it. Continue editing the position of the players that you want on your fantasy team. Note: There are some players that cannot change positions because there are too few players at that position on the team they are on. Once you are done editing, go to franchise mode, turn "Fantasy Draft" on, select your team, then start the draft. Sign the players during the draft that are available that you were not able to change positions, then simulate the rest. Once the draft is over, go to the rosters then to "Free Agents". Go to the positions that you changed your players to and sign them for seven years and for the least amount possible. Note: Some of the players may have been drafted because they were still decent at the new position. Release the players from your team as you are signing the players you picked to allow enough room on the roster. You can trade for the players that you edited and got drafted. Once you get all the players that had edited positions, edit them again and change their positions back to what they normally play/ You will be able to have the players you wanted and for a low price.

In franchise mode, if you choose Fantasy Draft and you want a good cornerback but the good ones are all gone, do not worry about it. If it is the first round, draft a QB, RB, or WR. Then, in the next round draft Ed Reed. After the Fantasy Draft, switch Ed Reed to a cornerback. You will need three SS, including Ed Reed. Also in the Fantasy Draft, pick up Rodney Harrison (switch him to a OLB). He will be a 98 overall. Then, pick Sean Taylor and Troy Polamalu for you starting safeties.

Injured players

Go into the depth chart and switch an injured player with the regular starter. They will act as if they had no injury. For example, if you switch Daunte Culpepper with Brad Johnson he can throw and run just as well as he would without an injury.

Making players suffer

If there is a player you dislike, do the following to make him suffer. Go to "Features", then to "Rosters". Select his team then choose the player and go to "Attributes". Reduce his injury to "0". This may take awhile; you may also want to set the game to four or five minute quarters.
