Dude, I love Madden 12. First game I threw for 360 yards, 2-2 TD/Int.
Cam is a raw QB, and it shows in the game. At times his throws are waaay off, but he's a rookie man. His throwing accuracy is a bit weird too, with Cam having decent short, bad medium, and good deep. So you kind of have to game plan around this.
I had good results with passing to Olsen. He had like 150 yards receiving. Seam routes, out routes, and slants. I hot routed him most of the game to try and beat the man or zone.
DWill is your fugging friend. I didn't get a lot of yards rushing(60) but I broke a few for 10 yard gains and 1 26 yard TD. But I got tackled in the back field a few times too. But I used him for screens and as a passing option a lot. You can also motion him around a bunch to get a favorable match-up. DWill should have at least 100 total yards of offense when you play as the Panthers.
I got the ball to Smitty, but that was about it it. The WR's just plain suck sometimes. And when I tried to force a pass to a WR not named Smith, I threw 2 picks. So you have to be weary of throwing to other WR's. If they are not open, you have to accept that. Throw the ball away or quickly look for a checkdown or Olsen.
As far as the WR's go, Naanee was decent, but nothing special at all. AE is still a 63, fast, but horrible route running. I am thinking of putting Goodson in as number 4 WR instead of Lafell.
But I love this madden. There are some things you just can't do anymore though, like certain throws, throwing on the run sometimes, easily beating zone coverage. Just gotta get used to it man.
