Madden 15 "We Don't Suck This Year" Edition

01 September 2014 - 03:07 PM

I figure a lot of people here have to be playing with the Panthers and Madden strategy is hard to find without paying for it these days, so here's a thread for us to talk tactics. Here are my thoughts:

 

Defense

Luke and Cam are practically unofficial cover boys in this, and the defense is monsterous. Keek especially can be all over the field making sacks, interceptions, stopping the run, etc. He's so effective as a one man show that I just let him do his thing and not control him. Star is pretty beastly too, and I end up ususally controlling him on D and trying to get to the QB.

 

I switch the playbook to a 46. I'm curious if anyone else does the same or prefers the default. To me it brings out the best of the team since the secondary blows regardless.

 

Offense

Cam's a gamer's QB. His throw on the run is kinda ridiculous. It's about the same as his regular toss. Against bad d-lines he's good to pick up 5 yards on a scramble. Either I don't have the technique for goaline sneaks down or they've really limited him there though, because I can never get him to jump over the line and he acts stuck in the mud if there's bodies in front of him at all.

 

The running game is punishing. DWill destroys on the ground (may even be a bit overpowered to be honest) and Tolbert is great for short yardage. When playing the computer I have the RBs set to auto-sub frequently. I don't know if this is possible online or if it even factors in energy .If you're patient with the Panthers you can ground and pound your way to victory against just about anyone.

 

No idea what to do with the recievers. Olsen's hands are great and I like catching a running back in the middle. Screens to Dwill can be highly effective too.

 

tl;dr- run the ball and let the defense be great


Dorsey's dropping the ball as QB Coach.

Not to wash Cam's hands completely clean, and maybe I'm ignorant on the job description, but isn't throwing mechanics training basic QB coaching? 

 

I know Dorsey's new to the gig, but imagine you're him. You have a talented quarterback and the one major flaw in his game is he overthrows receivers or keeps the ball too high often. He actually play his best when he's forced to call plays himself at the end of the game and is short on time. What exactly are you doing as QB coach if Throwing Motion 101 stuff continues to be a chronic issue for your quarterback?

 

Controversial end was the best possible outcome

19 November 2013 - 12:49 PM

Going into the Monday night game of course the win was at the top of my wishlist. There were a few worries that came with that however:

 

  • This team is historically the most worrisome when they're the favorites and play their best when they're the underdogs. With the "controversy" witch hunt in full effect, the team still has a chip on their shoulder to motivate them. This goes double for Cam who's thrived on pressure since college. 
  • An outright win would have either put the league on full notice (even more than they are now) or been dismissed as the Patriots choking like the Giants game was.

 

The Panthers are now respected with just enough doubters to keep the fire burning. Cam is now an elite QB but still has something to prove unlike media darlings Luck, RG3, or Wilson. We couldn't have asked for a better outcome. 


The bandwagon's leaving the station...
