It's essential to keep the ball moving forward on offense, even if it's in small chunks.  One good way to keep defenses off-balance is to pass with a combination of quick-passes, drags, and play-action with tall physical receivers. Particularly when playing against short defensive backs, quick passes can pick up crucial yards that keep the chains moving.  This tip, originally submitted by legacy member LHSPanther62, will help keep the chains moving while discouraging blitzes.

At some point the anyone playing Madden will need to run the ball.  Whether they run the ball early to maintain possession and tire out the defense, or late to milk the clock and protect a lead, running the ball is an important part of a successful game plan. 

In Madden, some players resort to trickery to get the ground game going by pretending to pass from spread formations only to get dropped for a loss because the defense is blitzing.  When strength is the most important factor, don't mess around with little fast guys that might not get the job done.  Using big guys who are capable of clearing a path to instantly increase your odds especially in short yardage situations.
