    I'm using the Redskins so only an average QB, but I'm lucky if I post a QB rating over 50 in a game. All-Pro difficulty, standard sliders, normal game speed.

    It's the normal game speed instead of the much better Slow speed for me. Gives you no time to make proper reads.

    Thats why I've been using normal in my offline franchise, to get used to it. Been difficult so far.

    I'm actually struggling to run with the Redskins and our poor excuse for an offensive line.

    I can pass with stafford pretty well, not deep though. I have played with the redskins and cambell throws some HORRIBLE passes

    I have some QB issues. My passing will suffer until Josh Freeman develops. I'm still debating on starting Leftwich or Freeman.

    Campbell seems like he can't throw a slant or out route to save his life. If I lead the receiver even the slightest bit it flys 5 yards past him. But if I don't lead the receiver its a pick 90% of the time. I bumped QB Acc up 5 pts from the default and things work a whole hell of alot better now. I went from like 30% completion to 70%.

    With me its the lack of time/pass blocking. When I have time I can pass fine, that's just few and far between. Running though, I'm averaging 150 yds a game

    yerah Im not looking forward to my 50-60 ovr WR lol but every time I pass it seems like my guys are always double covered. I have noticed though if you are succesful at the run passing is a little easier

    Supposedly, they are going to change it so that you can pick the game speed you want in OF.

    Any hints? I'm getting stuffed on 90% of my run plays with Forte. The O-Line isn't great, but it isn't THAT bad.

    im having more trouble running than passing. I think cambell is just a horrible passer in this game though lol that may be your problem

    I have been playing with the Browns offline, normal speed on whatever the next level lower than All-Madden is (All Pro?).

    In the regular season opener against the Vikings, I murdered them, I took Quinn out at the end of the third and Jamal Lewis had over 10 ypc on 16 rushes.

    Power backs are really good in this game. But word of advice, NEVER use turbo in the backfield and not really till your about 3 yards past the OL unless you have a huge hole or no one around you.

    I'm playing a franchise with the Chargers and I have no problem running it, but I have a feeling it's gonna be a problem running with the Seahawks and their horrible group.

    If Mazzman doesn't show up I want my Chargers back, lol

    I've been running between the tackles mostly with Marshawn Lynch and using Fred Jackson as the change of pace to the outside. I think that is 1 big key, playing to your players strengths. Don't try running iso's with speed backs or sweeps/tosses with power guys. Other thing is I slide the line when it calls for it. If it's up the gut, I go aggressing. Outside the tackle, slide left/right. And use the right stick to power for the extra few yards.
