PA Jailbreak Screen

Any tips on how to run this play? Every time I run it I end up getting sacked as soon as I finish the play fake

Re: PA Jailbreak Screen

The key to running any of the screen plays in my opinion is the defensive leverage and alignment. Since you are using time time to fake the run on this one, if the D is sending a lot of heat youíre wasting time getting the ball out due to the need for your blockers to get a release on the jailbreak. Pre-snap, look at the alignment of the playside OLB and CB. If the CB is well off the WR you should be able to make the catch and get yards using the RAC catch and immediately working off the block of the CB. Typically the jailbreak comes back inside off the hips of your linemen, but since itís madden youíll probably end up bending it back out right away. The other key is the OLB alignment. If you know heís been rushing off the edge and the CB is off, youíre set. If the OLB is not split between the WR and tackle, itís easy money. If he is and is usually dropping into a zone, in my experience with madden, he will probably blow the play up somehow. Also, as soon as you come off the fake you have to throw a laser beam to the WR. I know that was a huge post but I hope it helps. I coach high school ball and run a screen like that and I look for leverage / alignment of the OLB and CB if itís something I want to call.

Canít say for sure for Madden 20 but I found the bubble screen to be a great play for a few easy yards or more on Madden 18. As long as you have some decent blockers out wide and the bubble guy is either uncovered or is defended by a deep safety, itís too easy. Throw it as soon as you get the snap and RAC catch it and get wide. Too easy.....at least on 18 lol

You canít interrupt the fake-handoff unfortunately, but if you can get the throw off, itís usually an explosive play.

High-risk, high reward.

This particular play is broken, to answer your question directly. I get sacked EVERY time I run it.

I believe the RT will abort the play action animation. I think that's what you are wanting.

Lol. Iíve hated PA plays for a few years, now, in madden. It seems every single time I run any PA, whichever side my QB rolls out to is where there D gets off the block quickest. And/or, theyíve got an overload to that side. Now, Iíve started looking at this pre-snap a little better and simply audibling out of it.

I hate to use the term, Ďbroken,í but I do feel PA has been broken for years. It never fakes out the D, number 1. So, even if youíve been running well in the game and u hit a PA at the perfect time, often, the DE or OLB just doesnít go for the RB hardcore. If they did, youíd get that extra second or 2 to throw the ball well. Iíve taken a million insta-sacks on PA plays over the years. Lol. And, while Matt Ryan does take too many sacks, irl (due to the poor offensive line, imo), heís actually a good PA guy, especially when we run the ball well (which we also have not done much this year, lol). But, in terms of a video game playing based on ratings and whatnot, Iíve always felt PA doesnít work well enough for my dirty birds and Matt Ryan.

In terms of wr screens, I try to really look at the wr and try to time it to allow the other wr to block appropriately. This can play out sort of realistically as timing is really impt in those, irl.

RB screens, I absolutely do not control the QB. I simply let the cpu do the dropback, and, again, timing is impt as I try to throw my pass as the RB starts to break out. I still take some sacks on some nonsense, but I can get some decent screens in from time to time.
