The "Detroit/Carolina" defensive guide for Madden NFL 15 is here and is truly a masterpiece that will take any player wanting to use unique defenses to the next level.

In Madden NFL 15, the use of the 5-2: Normal defense has taken off more than it has in previous years. While the formation is nothing new and been used before, it's never truly been dominant or easy to create an entire scheme with.

This year, all of this has changed. The 5-2: Normal defense has one of the best run defenses, especially for shutting down the most abused run plays out of Pistol and Gun, as well as providing fast and consistent gap and edge pressure.

If you're the type to like A and B-gap blitzes, especially by defensive linemen, this guide has more blitzes of this kind than any other. While the latest Madden NFL 15 patch tried to put an end to defensive line pressure, there are certainly still plenty of them, as you will find in this guide.

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.

In this guide, I devoted specific material to teaching how to stop many of the most abused tactics, such as stopping the best run plays like Strong Power, HB Counter, and 0 1 Trap, especially out of Pistol.

I also specifically show how I stop drag routes and crossing routes like in Four Verticals, and everything else that is overly-effective and abused this year. I show how these routes are most effectively ran, so this guide could boost your offense as well.

The guide also includes DT A-gap blitzes, DE B-gap blitzes, edge-pressures, two, three, and four-man pressures, and many pressures that a RB or TE cannot block.

The "Detroit & Carolina" Defensive guide features everything from schemes out of 5-2: Normal, 4-3: Over, 4-3 Stack, Quarter: Normal, and more.

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

"Another great piece of work from Madden Gurus. I been following your videos since last year. You be having some good & straight up legit guides. That's why I support you brother good work. " — J Ash

I know that time is valuable, and that is why this guide will not waste your time with endless paragraphs or long, rambling videos. Everything in the guide is direct and straight to the point so that you can get to playing instead of studying.

With this guide, learning is easier than ever as you can just hit the play button, sit back, and watch as we show you all the minor details of running these schemes in a matter of minutes. On top of that, each play comes with short, typed up steps as well so that you have all the most important information that you need to know when you are in the middle of gameplay.

This is extremely important if you need to look something important up during a match and you don't have much time in between plays.

Now, when you're playing, you have all the knowledge and information that you need at your fingertips by just clicking around in our quick-links system so you won't have to watch a whole video to know what the play is supposed to accomplish.

And since everything is attached with links, you really never even have to scroll around to find anything. I really appreciate this, having compared this to some of the other guides I've bought elsewhere, which can be such a pain of having to click and load separate pages every time I want to see a different play. Some were just pdfs and the videos are links that take me to different sites. Some were just videos with no written steps! I love this site as it doesn't cut corners and provides the best overall service. I can't thank you enough.

Just want to say thanks not only for the great service, the unparalleled customer service and UNMATCHED products. The 4 guides I've bought this year, including the detroit and carolina defense, have taken my game to places I've never been before. I've seen such a dramatic change in my game since the purchase that I've already bought 4 guides in the last month and have used them to customize my own playbook. Thanks again!

Strategy Guide: F.A.Q.

Do these strategy guides work on Mac, Smart Phones, or Tablets? Back to top.

Yes to all three. Each guide is fully optimized to work on Macs, smart phones, tablets, and PCs. Any device that can load an internet web page can use the guide with complete functionality. 

What is the purpose of this guide?
Back to top.

The purpose of this guide is to make you a better player at Madden NFL 15 whether you play real people, against the CPU, online, or offline. The strategies in this guide are all game-play related, which means they deal with mainly the aspects of play-calling, play-adjustment, and play-execution.

What does this guide consist of?
Back to top.

This guide mainly consists of Schemes. A Scheme by definition is a "systematic plan of action", and an "orderly combination of related parts". In other words, we define a scheme as two or more plays out of the same formation which we use as a systematic plan of action. We teach you how to adjust it, optimize it, when to switch plays, and how to counter most of the defenses or offenses someone could run against you with it. Above and beyond the play-breakdowns themself, our voice-over commentary is also packed with tips and tidbits of information that can change the way you view each play and the game itself.

Why buy a "Bundle" package? Back to top.

There are several reasons why it is best to get a Bundle package and why many people get them besides the fact that it ends up being a better deal:

1. You learn about other popular defenses. By simply becoming aware of them you instantly gain an advantage on recognizing these strategies and then beating them when you encounter them, since you know what to expect and what it works or doesn't work against.

2. You can learn more different defensive concepts. In each guide, we try to make them unique, not only in the plays themselves, but in the general strategies that we season into each breakdown. By getting a variety of our guides, you will be exposed to countless defensive concepts that you can plug into any defense or playbook.

3. You can become more versatile and can switch playbooks against opponents who you play often. Given that each playbook only has a handful of money plays, people you play often can tend to catch on. By being able to use multiple playbooks you can always keep them on their heels trying to stop your powerful offenses.

4. If you use a custom playbook, you can add all, if not most, of the content from each guide into one playbook and have it all at your fingertips in each game.

Can I use this strategy guide with any team? Why is there a team name? Back to top.

The strategy guides can be used with any team you like and in any game mode. You can pick which playbook you want to use in the advanced options of the team-picking screen. The reason these strategy guides have names of teams such as "Indianapolis" is because we used the offensive playbook that naturally belongs to that team in the game but you can use any team's playbook with any team. The reason we break down team playbooks is for variety. We try to break down what we think are the best and most balanced playbooks in the whole game, that way you can have those great plays at your advantage so that you can be as competitive as possible.

Is this guide for competitive, experienced Madden players or for the casual/newbie gamer?
Back to top.

The guide is for both. We pride in making tough concepts simple. We also hold our strategy to the highest standards so that they will be essential in very competitive situations. 

Is this the typical "glitch" and "exploit" guide that I always see?
Back to top.

No. There are no glitches or game-exploitation in any of our products. Everything in our products is consistent with realistic football strategy.

What are some distinctives of Madden Players and its products?
Back to top.

1. High quality strategy. Being aware of what the majority of our competitors create, the quality of the strategy that makes it into our products is unparalleled. This includes not only extremely effective strategies but includes presentation, simplicity, comprehensibility, and accessibility.

2. User friendly. Our guides are meant to make the learning process simple, fast, and comfortable.

3. Reputation. Most people who buy our guides once are permanent and faithful customers every year they play Madden NFL or NCAA Football and are often disappointed when they shop elsewhere.
