I cannot figure out DL moves. The handful of times I use the DL, usually in prevent situations, I end up flat on my face. Doesn't matter what move I use or what player I use, I am on my face.

I have played in a dynasty/league for years and years that didn't allow user blitzing or user DL play, so I got used to using the back 7. I feel much more confident in my ability to stop the run against the CPU and defend the pass vs users by roaming the middle of the field with my LB or a FS in the middle of the field.

The only time I have gotten those engage/disengage moves to work is actually with a linebacker when I come flying up the field on play action and end up getting caught in traffic, I can usually spin out of it.

Re: What positions do you play on defense?

On PS2....I used to use the DT and end up switching while the ball is in the air.Now....MLB so I can roam the middle of the field and stop the run....and switch while the ball is in the air unless I can make a play with the MLB

I almost always use the DE...if I'm expecting a run up the middle, I'll use the MLB

Re: What positions do you play on defense?

DB almost always.
I used to use LDE, but 90+% of my time on 2012 has been defensive so I have tinkered around. Still can't play CB #1/#2 very well, but any other non-lineman position I do quite well at.

My favorite plays are definitely running a spy so I can roam and give support where I feel necessary. I run the 3-3-5 primarily, speedy DB's are my game plan. I occasionally throw some 46 in there, it's a sick set with the right guys, but I only use it when I have the right combination of speed and awareness for my defense.

Most passing situations, im using anyone on the defensive line. i don't care who, they all good. other than that, its don't matter who i use. its between the D'line and Anyone one of the 2 safeties

MLB.

I'd like to use a SS if I can recruit one who's good enough to be all over the field, but pass coverage responsibilities can burn you if you fail.
