Thumbs down Madden 09 Tips?

This is the first Madden I've played in years, I've got Madden 09 for the PS3. I've been playing for the past couple days and I swear I've gotten worse than when I started. This game is hard as hell!
I have yet to score a FG or TD, can barely get 1st downs. My run avg is about 2yds per carry. Also, I can play the worst team in the league and they destroy me.

WTF am I doing wrong?? I'm switching up plays at the line, trying to read their defense but the computer D is god like on this game. EVERY pass I throw over 10yds has at least triple coverage. I'm avraging about 6 INTS per game too. I mean cmon, this is crazy.

Anyone have any tips or whatever?

Thanks

Try running some out routes if you can't get the longer passes and mix it up with some screens if you aren't able to run it.

Trash it and get 10. 09 is garbage. 2010 is totally different, way better control of players and tons more features. IMO

LOL. It would end at a 0-0 tie.

Madden 09 is easy man, use the Giants, learn the playbook and dont throw into coverage. Learn to use the stiff arm, hit stick, highlight stick, juke and strip. Also whenever your opponent is throwing into coverage switch to the closest player to the ball and hit whatever button you have set for (catch) so you will get an interception. Me and my buddies have been on a madden 09 craze for about a month. I can play this and i have only played madden 05 in the past.

Are you running towards the right endzone?

LOL, funny you mentioned this. I just found out which button is was last night!

I've played for awhile now, started my Franchise with the Cowboys and have figured some things out. I'm 4-0 in preseason and currently 4-0 into my regular season.
I'm annoyed though, Barber has like a 93 rating but yet he's slow as shit and gets tackled pretty easily. I switched Felix Jones to my starter, that was a great move on my behalf.

It's fun once you figure out some shit.

I bet it would have if this was on Friday or Saturday when I first started. I couldn't do shit.

I can't even remember the last Madden I played but they've definitely made it a bit harder.

I'm just getting back into the gaming scene, I picked up the 09 editions for all sports. It's not worth $45-50 for the Madden 2010 when I got 2009 for for $15 brand new.

Trust me, 2010 is ten times better than 09.



A few tips --


HB Blast, reversing which side of the center you run to, will get you consistent 1st downs. I usually net 12 yards or so. I've once played an entire game, running that play, just reversing the sides I run to. Opposing D never could stop it, and I won that game by like 30 on All Madden. Just to prove a point.

Fucking forget about running any play action. The D NEVER bites on play action in 09. Your QB will get sacked every time.

Out routes, when you're having trouble passing. Obviously, stay away from the double and triple covered receivers.

Screen passes are your friend. For that matter, ANY pass to someone out of the back field, always nets big yards. And they almost never defend the guys coming out of the back field.

The game is pretty realistic with Barber. He's not an every down back, yet somehow, Jason Garrett and Wade Philips haven't figured that out yet. You'll do far better with Jones, but like in real life, he's prone to injury, so be careful, and keep a third back on your franchise if you're going to keep Jones the starter.
