Flats and PA

Has anyone had success throwing to the flats? When I run PA after4 or 5 successful running plays i either get sacked or none of the secondary even bit on it. Also when going to fthe flats with forte he is always tackled immediately. Any Tips?

Re: Flats and PA

My only tip for you regarding play action is to not use it because it doesn't work. I have tried using it in almost every imaginable realistic scenario, and it is a disaster every time. It doesn't fool anyone except, apparently, your own offensive linemen. Ridiculous.

Look at your QB playaction rating. If it's low then obviously it's not gonna work.

Re: Flats and PA

I hear ya on both accounts. Playaction has never worked and needs to be reworked badly.

They seemed to have neutered the passes in the flat. I find more success when the rb goes more diagonal in the flat than wide.

Atleast the draw plays work pretty well now.

You do know the POINT of play action, right? It's to make a defender take a wrong step, over commit, or pursue the wrong guy.

This does not happen in Madden. It has nothing to do with my 'game'. It has everything to do with the fact that none of the intended goals of play action WORK. Of course I can add blockers, but that's not the POINT of play action. When I run a PA play without making block assignment changes, I should still be able to tell it's play action. But I can't. The only way I can tell is that there is a linebacker riding my QB like a rented mule the second I snap the ball.

Out of the box, PA doesn't work.

Works fine for me, yah. As the chiefs with charles, my pass game is centered around it, and I go down very few times anyway, fewer from using PA, as I often see my HB get slammed to the ground as they do bite on it.

Even with the Bengals, I'm not having problems with Play Action plays.

It works great!
