Is there a way to turn off the salary cap?

I love Madden don't get me wrong but ESPN's 2K5 really won me over with its graphics and game play. It's hard to believe that Madden hasn't advanced its graphics...Don't get me wrong I love Madden still and I play it more than the 2K5 but Madden you have some "splaining to do" next year if 2K5 is 30 bucks cheaper and catching up to you in game play and and already surpassed you in graphics...and the TV analysts are awesome so is the Crib feature.

Can anyone help me stop Givens from the Patriots. They catch everything!! I hate losing a game against my Nephew and friends on the last drive. I want to figure out a way to shut them down completely. Just barely getting a hang of the user control to snag ints but it is still hard to stop all the long bombs and virtually every pass getting caught.

Which formations are they using? Which playbook are you using?

I am using the Texans playbook and all indicatons show they are using NE's playbook. When he goes three WR he kills me.

Tony Holllings is not having the breakout year we all expected. But I have to keep in mind he was a former DB. But I have scheduled a meeting to talk to Casserly for giving up a 2dn rd pick for him. Armstrong is a diamond. Carr has progressed a mile. The Wand experiment will end after week 17 2006. I will draft an LT. Dang I truly love this game. When my wife complains and says "All you do is play that dang game! And you get mad when you lose (often)." My response, "Babe, at least I'm home and not out carousing." I think I have found my true calling. Yes it's sad. I don't care.

You can bump them from the nickel formation. Then, shift your lineman to your right, then make them crash to the right. Your LE should be the one who's applying the pressure.

Or zone blitz from the nickel 3-3-4.

Or, try the quarters 3-deep formation. Have each safety double up on each receiver. Make sure you double up on the FL & SE first, then double up on the slot. Control your MLB and patrol the middle or the RB. Your DB will be matched up against the TE, so double up on him if the RB stays in to block.

They love to just drop back 15 yards and throw. What can I do?
Have your LBs stay in zone coverage (ie. 3-4 cover 4)

How do I get all those dudes to double cover the receivers?

It depends on the formation they're running out of. Experiment w/ your lineman by shifting them around (I like to pinch them in). Or, bring your safeties up (triangle + left). Anyway, what's your screen name?

Since i'm an anti-console guy, I had to wait to get the pc version of Madden 2005. I have to say that I was quite confused, I haven't played it much and I will soon. I need to buy a gamepad because you can't use the "hit stick" with a keyboard. Other than that seems like another excellent game by EA!

Yeah, I got it yesterday for the PC because I dont have a gaming console either. I have a gamepad and I love the game...

According to the first game I played yesterday, the Texans will beat the Titans on a kickoff return by JJ Moses in OT after Drew Bennent catches another TD pass over Coleman to force OT...
