I. Ground Attack

OVERALL TIPS: On HB Toss and HB Sweep plays try to run the side that
your supposed to go on and then cut it back the other way aiming for
the opposite sides pylon. Its works really well on the first 3
difficulties. Watch the dummies and shoot through the gaps, do not
try to run everything outside. If someone is coming at you from the
side try to stiff arm them (R1 or L1), or if someones in front of
you then juke them out (R2 or L2). You can also spin (circle) but it
doesn't work as often for me as the other moves do.

blocking dummies that open up lanes acting like offensive linemen.

different defenders. On pro their in a 1-2 set and in all-pro their

Rookie, Pro, All-Pro: Human Plow, Bronze, Silver, and Gold respectively
All-Madden: Barry Sanders
Situation: The teams cheerleader card which pumps up the crowd

Point System:
Bonus - Score a TD.

II. Chase and Tackle

OVERALL TIPS: Watch out for the dummies, they can easily stop you and
let the RB score on toss plays. On toss plays go at an angle to where
you can meet the RB so he still has two guys to go through. Watch where
the hole is because that's where he's going to run to. Always switch to
the safety if he gets by your linebacker to tackle the ball carrier
because you get more points. When their running slams and dives try to
pin the running back up against the dummies so its harder for him to
get by you in the hole that the dummies make.

Rookie: New Orleans Saints
Pro: Pittsburgh Steelers
All-Pro: San Diego Chargers
All-Madden: Baltimore Ravens

Rookie and Pro: It's you and your Safety against one RB. There's a few
defensive dummies that do not move at all. The offensive dummies move
for the blocking scheme.
All-Pro and All-Madden: It's you and your Safety against a RB and his
FB. There's more defensive dummies than there was last time but the
offensive dummies stay the same.

Rookie, Pro, All-Pro: Fumbleitis, Bronze, Silver, and Gold respectively
Situation: The teams cheerleader card which pumps up the crowd

Point Reduction: Let the RB score
Get Points: Less yards he gets the more points you get
Bonus: Tackle him yourself

III. Clutch Kicking

OVERALL TIPS: Don't go all the way on the power meter unless you doing
the All-Madden level, it wastes precious time. Don't take so much time
aiming your arrow at the middle bar. You can adjust things with your
accuracy meter. Remember if its in the center of your accuracy it wont
curve at all. If its on the right part of the section then it will
curve a little to the left and the opposite for the left side of the
meter.  Always look at the wind your first kick to see how it is
because it can effect your kicks greatly. The wind never changes so
there's no reason to look at it after that.

Rookie: Cleveland Browns
Pro: Carolina Panthers
All-Pro: Denver Broncos
All-Madden: New England Patriots

Rookie: K P. Dawson
Pro: K J. Kasey
All-Pro: K J. Elam
All-Madden: A. Vinatieri

Rookie and Pro: Gold - 2200, Silver - 1500, Bronze - 900
All-Pro and All-Madden: Gold - 2100, Silver - 1500, Bronze - 900

All: The wind blows any direction up to 8 mph. It is totally random
what the wind does. So if you don't like the wind restart until you get
some conditions you like.
Rookie: 31-35 yd FG
Pro: 35-39 yd FG
All-Pro: 42-46 yd FG
All-Madden: 47-51 yd FG

Rookie, Pro, All-Pro: Da Boot, Bronze, Silver, and Gold respectively
All-Madden: Jan Stenerud
Situation: The teams cheerleader card which pumps up the crowd

-300 for hitting the middle bar (red)
-150 for hitting the bars on the sides of the middle bar (orange)
-75 for hitting the bars between the posts and the other three bars

IV. Pocket Presence

OVERALL TIPS: Before the tennis balls start coming at you look up a try
to remember the button for the receivers because you wont have much
time to look at it once the balls start, especially on the harder
levels. Try not to throw off balance because you will usually go out of
the pocket and sometimes you'll be out long enough to where you'll have
to restart.

Rookie: Jacksonville Jaguars
Pro: Minnesota Vikings
All-Pro: Green Bay Packers
All-Madden: San Francisco 49ers

Rookie: QB M. Brunell
Pro: QB D. Culpepper
All-Pro: QB B. Farve

Rookie: Gold - 1400, Silver - 1200, Bronze - 900
Pro: Gold - 1325, Silver - 1100, Bronze - 800
All-Pro: Gold - 1200, Silver - 900, Bronze - 600
All-Madden: Gold - 950, Silver - 675, Bronze - 450

Rookie: You have 3 receivers to throw to (Square, Circle, and X). There
is only one tennis ball coming at you per throw.
Pro: This time you have 4 receivers to throw to (L1). There is one more
tennis ball coming at you this time to make 2.
All-Pro: You have 5 wide receivers to throw to (R1). There is 3 tennis
balls coming at you this time.
All-Madden: You have 5 wide receivers again. The tennis balls keep
coming at you continuously until you throw the ball. Usually two in a
row from the same cannon coming in the same direction.

Rookie: Pro, All-Pro: Pocket Protectors, Bronze, Silver, and Gold
All-Madden: John Elway
Situation: The teams cheerleader card which pumps up the crowd

25 - Green Target
50 - Yellow Target
75 - Orange Target
100 - Red Target
-25 - Sack
-5 - Out of Pocket (2 seconds)
Game Over - Out of Pocket (5 seconds)

V. Coffin Corner Punt

OVERALL TIPS: Don't sweat over the long yardage that you see in the
description section. If your thinking your punter only punts it 45
yards normally well then its actually like a 58 yard punt. So you
won't have to worry about being perfect to get it to the target area.
Always take the wind into effect. On All-Madden I would keep
restarting until you get a wind that's points NNE or SSE. If your on
the right side of the field then punt it to the right side, It's a lot
easier then trying to punt it across the field to the left side.

Rookie: Houston Texans
Pro: Atlanta Falcons
All-Pro: Arizona Cardinals
All-Madden: Detroit Lions

Rookie: P J. Baker
Pro: P J. Mohr
All-Pro: P S. Player
All-Madden: P J. Jett

Rookie: Gold - 900, Silver - 650, Bronze - 250
Pro: Gold - 800, Silver - 600, Bronze - 250
All-Pro: Gold - 700, Silver - 500, Bronze - 250
All-Madden: Gold - 500, Silver - 375, Bronze - 250

All: You are trying to punt the ball into the target area. Don't worry
about where it stops bouncing, its about where it lands. You will punt
the ball from the middle or either hash lines.
Rookie: 53-57 yard punt, no wind
Pro: 57-62 yard punt, wind up to 3 mph
All-Pro: 57-62 yard punt, wind up to 9 mph and the target area gets
All-Madden: 62-67 yard punt, wind up to 16 mph and the target are gets
even smaller.

Rookie, Pro, All-Pro: Coffin Corner, Bronze, Silver, and Gold
Situation: You get the teams cheerleader card

200 - Red (Bull's Eye)
100 - Orange
50 - Yellow
