46 Defensive eBook

Madden Players’ Madden NFL 16 “46” Defensive Guide
Designed for: Madden NFL 16 on Playstation 4 & Xbox One
Based on: 46 Defensive Playbook


The 46 defensive playbook in Madden NFL 16 is the most unique of its kind, featuring the most formations not found in any other playbook. Since such few playbooks have all these formations, people are less likely to be used to playing against it, making it surprising and tougher to adjust to.

As we have seen in the first few weeks of Madden 16, the 46 formations have been the most neglected in terms of strategy. While it’s not easy to find good pressure without sending the house, finding good pressure sending only 3 or 4 players is certainly possible, and this guide contains a lot of that, some of which a blocking running back just won’t pick up.Not to mention, this guide and playbook contains possibly the best run defense in the game out of the 46: Normal. And to make things even better, I bring you a 46: Normal Scheme so large that it currently spans 8 different setups, four of which work out of virtually any play. The blitzes span anywhere from 3-5 rushers, unless it’s a dual-pressure that an extra blocker can’t pick up. Pair this with the best run defense and you could virtually sit in this 46: Normal the whole game, shut down the run and pass, and disguise everything.

In this guide, you will find plenty of three-to-four man rush blitzes, A and B-gap blitzes, blitzes that a running back or TE don’t block whether they’re slide-protecting or not, dual-edge pressure, multiple run defenses to blow up the tosses and inside runs, coverage defense to strangle aggressive catches, and much more. I left nothing on the table with the content in this guide, nor with the effort and level of quality that I put into it.

And most of all, the blitzes are consistent. The first thing some folks will tell you to try to lower your expectations immensely is that you can’t run the same blitz too many times or the offensive line will adjust. That is completely false, and please don’t believe that. Consistency in blitzes exists, it just takes hard work to find the right blitzes.

Our 46: Normal comes loaded with over 7 video breakdowns that consist of: run defense, A-Gap and B-Gap blitzes, edge pressure, dual pressure, and setups that can work out of just about any play in the formation. 3-4: Bear comes packed with incredible A-Gap, B-Gap, Edge blitzes, and Dual pressures that are easy to setup. Our 46: Bear Underand Big: Nickel Bear bring their own set of unique blitzes that can attack every gap an edge on the offensive line.

Last but not least, our Dollar: 3-2-6, is loaded with a very in-depth 5 play scheme with over 8 different setups to get B-gap, and dual edge pressure that extra blocking or slide protecting has no chance of picking up. I also threw in some great blitzes that I found in 4-4: Split and Nickel: 3-3-5 Sam.

If you’re the type to like A and B-gap blitzes, especially by defensive linemen, this guide is absolutely loaded.

And the dreaded I Form, Strong I, and Weak I Quick Toss and inside runs… the Run Defense in this guide locks that up tightly. I spent several hours specifically trying to figure out how to stop that run scheme—don’t let it make you a victim. And aggressive catching? I show you how to shut that down as best as possible too while still getting nano-type pressure.

Whether you’re having trouble stopping the run, locking up money plays, or just want to be more aggressive in your blitzing and yet still retain great coverage, this guide will certainly satisfy all of your needs.

The guide also includes DT A-gap blitzes, DE B-gap blitzes, edge-pressures, 3-man pressures, 4-man pressures, and pressures that an RB or TE cannot block.

The “46” Defensive guide features everything from schemes out of 46: Normal, 3-4: Bear, 45: Bear Under, Dollar 3-2-6, Big Nickel Bear, 4-4 Split, and more.

Learn how to run all of these powerful formations to their maximum capability and much more using all kinds of defensive line, linebacker, and coverage adjustments that will drive your opponents crazy.

You definitely have a new customer now..the way you answer questions personally with this chat feature is the bomb. their ebooks are too overwhelming to be honest you hit the nail on the head when you said you’ll be studying more than playing… It’s almost like they want to make super long videos to just distract you from the fact that their content is lacking. I just wanna watch for a few minutes then try the stuff lol.. These are perfect thanks man.
