    Played 2 game online, had 5 picks in each game. Got a few sacks in each game. I can not play the ball in the air though because the game seems to always lag right before the ball comes down. I hate that Irving, Moore, and Carter are so slow. Irving is faster than Mays, Moore and Carter are both way faster than Dawkins.

    Moore and Bailey catch everything. Dawkins usually catches the ball, McBath makes crazy INTs when I go to 3 S looks. My only real complaint is that I can put a S at LB like I used to do last year. I had to put Williams and Woodyard at OLB and I moved Von to DE and he absolutely kills with his spin move. Him and Doom get a ton of pressure, Warren and Bunkley do good up the middle too.

    The offense is fine, I went over 150 yards both times with Knowshon, I only threw 1 INT with Tebow but about 5 TDs and over 300 yards in each game.
    Try using the Jets Defensive Playbook..they have some looks that allow you to do this..2-4-6 is the package I think :/

    10-12 online.. So I'm not doing great, but I am 6-1 in the last 7 games, so I'm learning our strengths in this game..

    So far what works best for me is;

    1. Moreno. Plain and simple. Run run run screen run screen run run motion out to WR 25 yard TD, he can do it all well in the game. Power O to the right side and you're gonna bust a long TD like 20% of the time.

    2. Julius Thomas over the middle. He's rated real low but don't let that deceive you. As a pass catcher he's a weapon and has the speed to get you some decent YAC, and even take it to the house if you catch your opponent blitzing the safety.

    3. Demarius Thomas and Eddie Royal in the slot. Both are our fastest receivers in the game and if you can catch a slower CB or a LB covering them in the slot, hot route that ish to a streak and odds are you're gonna get a few yards.

    4. Tebow. QB sneak up the middle in goaline formation is good for 4 yards almost every time. His deep ball is astounding and more often than not will be on the money. He's not a good QB to scramble with as he's slower than most DEs and just about every LB, but his mobility is good for falling back on screens.

    5. Any pass over the middle. Preferably 7+ yards down the field. Easy completions in this game.

    Defense

    1. Joe Mays. Play man QB spy under the 4-3 stack formation and you're set. If you can read the line well enough he will get you 5+ TFL a game and at least a sack or two.

    2. Champ Bailey. If your opponent likes to single in on a receiver, man champ up with him. I've had at least one pick from champ in every game, and most of those are able to find their way back to the end zone.

    3. Darcel Mcbath. Well, can't use him much longer as we cut him today, but in the game he's a pick machine when you play him in the deep half or deep middle, especially if your opponent likes to go deep a lot.

    4. Dawkins. He gets hurt in this game, a lot. He also gets burned if you try to use him in the deep zones or man too much. Put him in the flats and he is essentially a quick LB that helps stop the run more effectively from closer up. Also, will get a pick every now and then off a hasty out.

    5. Woodyard. I put him at OLB and put Miller as DE. Woodyard is rated low, but has great speed and decent coverage ratings for a LB, better than MIllers. His speed makes up for his other deficiencies, and blitzing him between Bunkley and Warren produces good results.

    even though I have the 32nd rank offense my #1 ranked D has gotten me to the superbowl lol.

    But I'm making strides with my offense in the post season.

    I can't believe I was suckered into buying Madden this year. I walked into GameStop and there were Madden 12 ads everywhere, couldn't resist lol.

    I haven't bought one in years, so I'm just enjoying it for what it is. Same flaws from the demo, but oh well. I'll give it a chance. I have a hard time playing as Tebow though...

    I've been playing on AP and so far (although I'm a bit rusty and was never THAT good in the first place!) I think the Broncos are fine, haven't lost any of my first four games (although one was closer then I would've liked). Orton seems unable to throw an accurate deep ball, Tebow seems unable to throw an accurate short ball. Seems fair enough. Running is a lot better on this game because of the improved player/player interaction, same goes for defense. I like it. The only thing that annoyed me about our roster is that I think Joe Mays should be rated a bit higher, but I guess if you don't follow the Broncos closely you wouldn't hold that opinion.

    I always hate my first franchise because the rosters change so much

    I found that teams unhappy with their starters at a certain position will offer up more in terms of trade compensation for a better player there, than teams set at that particular position. It made me very happy inside to see some vague sense of realism there.

    Ya, I don't know what's up with that. After the 4th preason game his projected overall rating dropped from 97 to 86 and that's with him making a pick in the 4th preseason game. Hunter is the same thing. His projected overall rating dropped 10 pts. I had 6 sacks with him over the first 3 preseason games. I sat him in the 4th game so that may be why his rating dropped.
    Pretty confident that those overall's at 99? means that its projected his overall to be a 99 based on the very limited attributes that are unlocked. Each week based on how many attributes are revealed means his rating will be re-calculated. This is why despite on field play, by week 4 his rating will be truer to its actual value than it was earlier. Eventually it will be fully unlocked and I think he ends up somewhere at 79 with B potential.

    The projected overall that slowly becomes more accurate is supposed to help you narrow down your choices of who you cut and who you keep each week among the rookies. It isn't an accurate portrayal of his final rating.

    Also, players won't progress in their ratings until you end the playoffs and enter Owner Mode in the off-season.

    Orton blows. I shipped him to Miami for a 3rd round pick. Tebow is good when he actually has time to throw. Orlando Franklin gets beat almost every other play which leads to sacks or rushed throws.

    After I traded Orton and put in Tebow my passing game really opened up. But I'm having trouble running it as well as before. Still winning by at least 4 TD's on All-Pro but the O-line is frustrating me.
