Big Plays are Everywhere!

EA has taken "wide-open game play" too far ...

Does anyone else feel that there are too many "big plays"?

Like 50+ yard plays?

BOTH for me and for the CPU.

Pick6 are everywhere!

Any ideas to cut down on the big plays?

I know that I need to get better about not throwing INTs in the flats.

Are there any 10 play / 65 yard drives anymore?

Thanks!

Re: Big Plays are Everywhere!

for yourself, turn the difficulty up or turn your sliders down. For the computer, adjust the sliders and learn how to play good defense. I play on heisman, and it seems the computer is guaranteed one ungodly huge play (86 yard run where running back breaks approximately 1,000,000 tackles), and maybe two, but you have to deal with it. I get a huge play maybe every other game.

I concur with above post. No matter how great of a game I am playing, I typically will give up one MONSTER play per game, sometimes 2. Typically its a run to the outside where my outside defenders (SS, CB) get knocked on their butts and then one defender misses the tackle and its bye-bye TD. CPU has more big plays then I do typically. I put together LONG slow drives most of the time but I have a house rule of 90 max speed for offense.

Re: Big Plays are Everywhere!

yea since i revamped my offensive game plan (short passes, less picks) my drives typically last 12-13 plays, and can sometimes chew up like four minutes. Its all about getting experienced at the game and improving your skills. Eventually the big plays will stop happening as often.
