Re: The Deep Ball

I usually complete 2-3 a game. Here are the keys:


- Try to match up your receiver with a smaller, slower conerback, that has a lower jumping ability.

- Only attempt to do it if they have ONE safety back in coverage and the other in the box or not on the field.

- With that being said... if you want to throw to X receiver... make sure he's cheating to Y receiver's side of the field. That way its just the WR and the CB one on one.

- If your WR is faster than the CB and in single coverage... wait until they are about even with each other... then TAP the throw button and hold up to lead him AS FAR AS POSSIBLE. Very rarely do I overthrow him and if the WR is faster... he will speed ahead and cacth the deep ball a good 2 steps in front of the CB.


Follow those steps and you should have no problem completing 1-3 a game. You don't even need a spectacular receiver... for me I always have it with Eli and Plax who is a MONSTER for the jump ball.

PLAY ACTION is your friend...Also the deep ball is hard to complete in the NFL...I think you may be commenting on the fact that previous EA games have been bomb-fests..they have now accurately toned that down and made it more of a strategic situation that you have to set up

I still play guys that drop back 20 yards with vick and then throw..it's still there..not as bad though.
