Punt Return

Anyone else finding that they can never return punts because no one seems to block on punt returns? I don't know if it's just me, but my guys just stand there, I think I've called fair catch on almost all the punt returns I've done.

Re: Punt Return

Yea, I've been having the same problems. Ive done a fair catch almost every time. The blockers are there standing next to the returner and doing nuthing as the coverage runs by them. Its really anoying.

This is SOOOOOOOOO frustrating - same thing happens to me - my blockers get outrun down the field and then when they catch up - the stand around like braindead morons.

Someone PLEASE tell me they've found a slider or solution for this!

Re: Punt Return

I always just used to increase the punt length, then make the few people miss and its off to the races, but I have always increase the punt length, helps a little bit.

Re: Punt Return

Hahaha, this was the worst today. The ball was coming in the air, 2 of my guys came back and were about a yard in front of me, and an offensive player ran right through the middle of them, and I had to call fair catch. They didn't even attempt to block him, they just stood there. How stupid lol.

OK guys - I found a way to get the Punt Returns to finally give us some room. You have to run "Punt Block Man" as your formation - you can't use any of the "return" formations - they just don't work anymore. Run "Punt Block Man" - some times the CPU will punt it out of bounds but about 50% of the time they'll kick it down there and since the CPU audibles to max protect you'll have time before all the defenders get down the field.

Try it - it works!
