Best tools for realistic play?

Hi guys. I'm fairly new to the Madden games. This is the 2nd one I've played. I'm looking to start a season in this one and play 15 minute quarters on All Pro. I also play without an accelerated clock if that means anything?

I've played only a couple of games so far on play now and some of the trends I've notice seem off. I haven't tried any sliders or anything yet as I have never used sliders for a Madden game before. This game seems like it's a must though if you want realistic stats for 15 min games.

Since I've only played 2 full games I haven't noticed too much yet so anyone feel free to chime in if you have played full games and have noticed some weird stuff as well. But so far I've noticed..
  • Too many yards? I think both CPU and User had around 4 to 5 hundred yards each and the game was in the mid 3rd quarter
  • Too many caries for the CPU RB's. I was playing the Raiders as the Jets and MJD had 30 something carries for 130 odd yards in the late 3rd
  • Waaaay too many sacks for both teams. Not sure of the number but I'm pretty sure this is a known issue anyway?
  • CPU QB seems to be too accurate. This though could be because I suck? Haha. Matt Schaub was playing like Peyton Manning. In the late 3rd he was 23/26. I know I'm fairly new and it might be my playcalling or whatever but that's still pretty high yeah?
  • Too many picks. In a game VS the Seahawks I found it a bit too easy to pick off Wilson. I had 2 in the 1st qtr in the space of 5 mins! Haha. I guess this could happen but it does feel a bit off?

Anyways I guess what I'm after is any feedback as to weather anyone else has these issues or more? And as I said I'm a bit of a Madden newbie so I was also wondering if there's a slider/roster specialist the community use for playing their season modes and could recommend for me?

How many plays per game did you have? With 15 minute quarters and not using accelerated clock, I would think you might end up with too many plays, which could be the reason behind a few of your problems.

Not too sure. I was thinking that might be what it is but it sucks that you can somehow make the CPU use more play clock! Haha

I guess I'll have to either try reducing the minutes to maybe 10 or having the play clock accelerated again...

I always play 15 min quarter with somewhere between 12 and 15 sec acc clock. Just so I have enought time to make 1 audible if needed.
It gives me a realistic numbers of plays for me and the cpu and thus a more realistic box score at the end of the game, and also make the game a bit shorter

I like to play 15 minutes with a run off to 11-12 seconds. Also, If you feel like your sacks are too high. Increase pass blocking. If you feel interceptions are too high. Decrease Interceptions. If you feel the CPU is too accurate. Lower QB Accuracy. Easy as that.

Yeah that's what I did last year. So far I feel like I need to examine the line of scrimmage a bit more this year because it seems like the AI defense is improved but maybe that's just over thinking. 1 audible should be enough I guess
