Basic Overview
Defensive Scheme
Mini Scheme
  • If an Offensive Player weights 90 Pounds or MORE than a Defensive player, when they engage in a block the Defensive player will fatigue
  • So far, it appears EA's fatigue system is still bugged and occurs more often in All-Pro
  • Typically occurs with DBs
  • Chiefs/46 Playbook - Nickel Over
  • Auto Flip Off, Base Align On
  • Pinch Defensive Line
  • Press & Shade Coverage Underneath
  • Typically do this from Cover 3, this is NOT a full scheme but instead is a short guide

        "Send 3 Glitch"
        Stopping RPOs
        • Best from Nickel 33, Nickel 33 Cub, Dollar
        • 3 Blitzing Defensive Linemen + your User positioned as shown in the video
        • As of right now, there is NO consistent "Send 3 Insta Shed Glitch". Sometimes players disengage running Loop Blitzes or sending 3.
          • Do NOT run pure Zone Coverage
          • Man Coverage with proper alignment
          • Ideally blitz 4 people (not including user)

                Beating Man Advice
                Tools We Can Use
                • Blocking at least our HB or TE if the Line of Scrimmage is crowded
                • Block HB AND TE vs Heavy Blitzes
                • Motion Blocking can be really good to help vs some blitzes
