    Thousand apologies for the quality of my pictures, but I really and looking for a job and don't have the time to make things pretty lol.

    This may be useless, but I'm posting it anyway. This is how I prepare for my Madden games.

    I grab a 8.5x11 page of cardstock (regular paper just isn't sturdy enough, and I like my playsheets to be stiff.) I section it out into 15 squares as such:

    Then I study my playbook, trying different stuff in the practice mode inside the league. I'll pick a play I like (or I have seen others use with proficiency) and jot it down.

    Then I'll practice like hell from one side of the field, about the 45 yard line. I use the gold 50 yard line to get a good idea of how many yards this play picks up consistently. Then I'll swap sides or flip the play.

    Once that is done, and I have an idea when this should be called, I color it in to make it easier to read/find. I also add what "2/12" number it is, since I have 12 shotgun sets and a lot of them sound the same. Then, after some more practice, I add little tips and such to make this play more successful.

    Then, I'll have pass plays arranged for 5+ yards, 8+ yards, and 11+ yards. Then I write down the runs I like, and create a playsheet for defense. I also have 4 or 5 screens and 4 or 5 P/A Passes prepared.

    This allows me to rapidly find a play I like, that matches the yardage I need, and really helps me stay away from calling the same plays. Its also much easier to remember how many screens/P/A passes I have run because its "visual".

    Let me know if this helps, or how you prepare, and if you see any way I can improve!

    v/r,
