Option to Option?

Is there any playbook in the game where there is an option play?
Also, how the hell do I call a fair catch on a punt?

Thanks.

Fair catch: Make sure you are the returner for this. On PS2, you press Triangle and on X-Box you press Y.

Not sure about the option. You could try the Falcons playbook. In real life I have seen them run it before.

there are no option plays in madden, why? we will never know and i dont understand why they dont run it in the nfl more with the scrambling qb's like mcnabb, vik, culpepper and even those wit some sort of speed although i do aknowledge the fact that they dont want their qb as an open target for a linebacker

Options generally aren't used in the NFL because a professional defense is much more athletic than a collegiate defense, thus they can react to and shut down the play quicker. Thus their absence in Madden.

Re: Option to Option?

It seems like there was a "pitch" button combo in previous Maddens, i could be wrong. Maybe white and black at the same time to pitch on the Xbox ... i can't remember. Maybe I'll hit the practice field and find out.

Pitches would be cool for special teams plays and to run a "Hook and Ladder" pattern at the end of a half or the end of the game.

Btw, in Week 1 for the Panthers, I saw a handoff to a HB (Nick Goings) who pitched it to DeShaun Foster. Also if anyone saw the last attempted kick return you saw about 8-10 pitches in a row.

Don't know why, but I couldn't stop laughing after seeing some of those guys throw it across the field.

It was hilarious. They were just chucking the ball around with no sense of direction, it was almost like a parody.
