Any tips for a foreign fan...

I'm from Australia and enjoy watching the NFL.

I have a basic understanding of the game but don't have the deeper understanding that you guys have.

Just wondering if you have any tips on playing defense in a video game. There is so much going on when the play starts, I don't know what I should be doing.

Do I:

-just pick a defender and concentrate of doing their role...

-just play a lineman and try to get to the QB? (At least I wont mess up my pass defenders)

-Watch the QB and react to what he does (i.e. see where the ball goes and select the nearest defender)

I'd just like to feel a little less helpless when playing D. In fact, I feel I'm usually more of a hindrance to my teams AI!

Any advice would be appreciated.

I'm playing NFL 2K5.

Thanks,

Re: Any tips for a foreign fan...

Honestly most players don't have the ability to control other players than the D-Linemen and that goes for me as well. I usually just take one of the defensive ends and play with him when I'm on defense because it's an easy position and I don't give up the long pass play.

I think understanding just takes playing a lot of football games and checking out the different defensive and offensive playbooks and watch the real NFL from week to week and see how they use similar things.

That's just how I've learned over the years.

You are right for the most part. If your not a dlineman make sure you follow your assignment. Also go to the 2k5 forum to get some good tips as well. You may have to use the search feature.
