Over a freakin 80 overall in Madden now?

The trick is to use individual adjustments on the Dline.  I get a ton of coverage sacks on that game.  Especially since opponents seem to pick teams with running qbs.   Just spy the DE on the qb's dominant side and slide the opposite DE to the flat.   Every time the opposing qb tries to move outside the pocket you suffocate them. You'll give up 3 to 5 yards a carry if they run, but they don't beat running the ball the whole game plus the more they run...bigger chances of a fumble.  This strategy is especially effect in goal line defense.  

 

After the offense get's used to seeing a spy and linemen dropping into coverage, then you set them up with the blitz.  Sort of like play action for the defensive front 7.

 

what about a pocket qb

Pocket Qb's actually are a bit easier.  When you're making individual Dline adjustments you can still keep one DE as a spy.  This protects the short middle while still providing support on outside runs.   Then you can either rush the opposite DE, or (what I prefer) drop the opposite DE into a middle zone to protect the area that was vacated by the middle linebacker.  I've gotten so many interceptions this way because the opponent wasn't expecting see DE's drop back in coverage.   This strategy works mainly for 4-3 defenses because the DE's are more athletic at least according to Madden.

i wish i could get the D to play how they play in real life on the game. doesnt happen though. its hard to get pressure on this new Madden. its like everybody has an amazing oline

 

Had the same problem. Just tweak your sliders. Gotta be careful, though, since you can make it too easy as well. It took me several weeks of playing a game or two a night to get it tuned to my skill level and style of play.

You have to know how to blitz. In the game you can't just pick a play and roll with it. You have to drop a DE into coverage and add a blitzer or wait until right before the ball is snapped to audible. If it's a run I find I get a 4 yard loss about 33% of the time. If it's a slant I either get a pick or sack the QB.

Anyone who wants to play gamer tag is CPcavedweller. The CP stands for Carolina panthers and yes that has been my tag since around January 2011 before we got Cam and I thought jimmehhhh was the answer.

That said, if you have balls, hit me up and we will throw down, need a few madden buddies anyway.
