Madden players face a dilemma striving for balance in their game plan. Finding a happy medium between runs and passes on offense or coverage and blitzes on defense might look difficult, but it is simpler than it seems.  Balance need not be a 50/50 mix.  Even a game plan featuring 100% passes or pressures can maintain a balanced attack as long as the play calling sets up the anticipation of opposing threats in varied situations.  Keeping an opponent's mind focused on countering one threat is often enough for another to work.

By default, Madden comes prepackaged with playbooks designed to imitate real NFL teams.  But what if you don't like the mix of formations and plays in any of them.  Why use a playbook that only has a handful of good plays and a boatload of bad ones.  Moreover, why not collect the best plays from all the playbooks into one playbook that you can use or at the very least, build a playbook with the best plays for the way you play and make reads.  Building your own custom playbook can be a time consuming task, but there are shortcuts to creating the perfect playbook for your tastes.

There's never a good time to fumble. Madden players know that maintaining possession wins football games; putting the ball on the ground is the quickest way to lose. Running the ball might seem to be the best method of maintaining control of the rock, but a hard hit could easily jar the ball loose and change the equation of the game. Using the cover ball button helps, but even it's effect is minimized late in the game when fatigue is a factor. This tip, sent in by legacy member "MaveDork" details a simple way to manage player fatigue while making fumbles harder to force in the late quarters.
