Help being a better passer

Does anyone have any tips on making better decisions and help with play call? I throw too many picks. Is there anything I can do to get better at making decisions and what are typically the best passing plays to pick?

I was in the same boat as you and I found out after watching alotta my replays on INTS that I wasn't staying in the pocket. Any type of pressure and I was scrambling and making errant throws.


Try going into practice mode and find passing plays that work for you. Also run the ball so you can get set up plays. I've found those do work.

Re: Help being a better passer

just practice a little more with your timing, you can't throw late or early or it will get picked.

db's and lb's have better hands than wr's this year

also, try not gamble on throws even when a man is single covered unless he clearly has his man beat, the cpu is just better at fighting for the ball so that will lead to a lot of picks

Look at the D presnap and look at your routes and make a decision on where you want to go with the ball. Also keep your routes in mind if your not sure of the coverage and if you see Cover 2/3/4, Man, etc, know where your guys are going will help make a decision quicker.

What I do if I'm not certain of the coverage is look at my wr's and pick who I'm going to look for after the snap based on what the D moves. If I have my slot running a post and the wr out wide running a streak, I know I'll look at those if there's Cover 2, if it's Cover 3 or Man I might look to check another wr who's route would be good against that and keep them in my mind in depending on if I'm facing man on the slot or 3 deep zones and don't feel they'll get open.

Also, never hurts to have a check down. Worst case scenario you can dump it off, if you are running a lot of deep routes you may tend to force it more than you have to.

Re: Help being a better passer

Im not much of a down the field passing guy, i like the short quick routes, easy completions.

Work on timing with easy routes that you like and progress yourself to deeper routes as you get the feel for it.

Re: Help being a better passer

you might want to decrease int slider also, thats the only slider adjustment I made, I was averaging around 8-10 picks per game both teams

What defines beating a DB deep is way different than last year. That's where I'm struggling the most this year
