Madden Players' Madden NFL 16 "Oakland" Defensive Guide
Designed for: Madden NFL 16 on Playstation 4 & Xbox One
Based on: OAK Defensive Playbook


The Oakland defensive playbook in Madden NFL 16 is one of the most 4-3 centric defensive playbooks, and is a true force for anyone who enjoys the 4-3 base formations. It is also the only playbook with the most 4-3 formations, given that it is the only one with 4-3: Odd.

As you might already know, the 3-4 formations have taken the Madden world by storm early during the season. Why, you might ask? I think it's simple. It's been extremely hard to find pressure out of the 4-3 formations. But just because it's hard to find pressure doesn't mean there isn't any. All it means is that it could take many, long hours to try to find a glimpse of what is already in this guide. 

In those many long hours, I was able to find a plenty of three-to-four man rush blitzes, A and B-gap blitzesblitzes that a running back or TE don't block whether they're slide-protecting or not, dual-edge pressures, defense 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. 

In this guide, you will find plenty of three-to-four man rush blitzes, A and B-gap blitzesblitzes 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 4-3: Over Plus comes loaded with DT A-Gaps, and DE B-Gaps, from every side of the offensive line, most of which work out of just about any play in the formation. 4-3: Over comes packed with incredible B-Gaps and Dual Edge pressures that are easy to setup and that can't be picked up by a running back or TE blocking. Our 4-3: Under and Nickel: Double A Gap bring their own set of unique blitzes and run defense.


Last but not least, our Quarter: Normal Scheme brings you a great assortment of B-Gap blitzes, Edge blitzes, and dual pressures that an extra blocker on offense can't pick up. I also include a mini scheme out of 5-2: Normal with some DT A-Gap blitzes for those of you who use DET, CAR, NYG or Custom defensive playbooks.

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 "OAK" Defensive guide features everything from schemes out of 4-3 Over Plus, 43 Over, 43 Under, Nickel Double A Gap, Nickel Normal, Quarter: Normal, and 52 Normal.

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.



"These are honestly the EASIEST and most effective setups I've ever seen. It's almost unreal..." — Voli

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.

The links throughout the guide make it so I never even have to scroll, I can just click between the plays and all the steps and video show up all on my screen at once. And the videos are short enough so if I ever want to see the blitz executed, I can watch it in a matter of seconds. I can't stand how some people make a 7-10 minute video on a blitz to just babble and waste my time about nonsense...  I constantly have to be clicking around the video just to find where they ran the darn thing. This site really knows what people want and need and get it done in the most efficient manner. Kudos.

It's worth it to me though, as I play this game more than any other, and all throughout the year. And the more competitive I get, the more I enjoy the game. You can definitely count on me as a customer for life. And your guide bundles are an absolute steal. Thanks for providing a way to get the best madden guides for what other people charge for their pure junk.

It's almost unreal, since other guides I've bought seemed like they averaged 7-8 or more steps per play, no joke it was out of control. I would be trying those setups online, even after memorizing them, and would barely be halfway through the setup before I was quick snapped repeatedly. I used to buy cheaper ebooks thinking I was saving some money and all I was doing was buying a cheap headache. A few bucks more for your guides are WELL worth every penny. You really get what you pay for.

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 16 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 themselves, 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. We take extra measures to make sure there are no frustrating or boring moments when it comes to using our guides or learning our strategies. Everything from how accessible our products are to the interface in which you view the strategy, we have your convenience constantly in mind.

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. Year after year, we hear from extremely satisfied customers, due to our excellent customer service and the overall experience.

Thanks for checking out our Guide F.A.Q. We hope you found it helpful and informative, and we look forward to serving you as you master this year's game along with us!
