Facing a no-huddle offense?  Hurry-up offenses catch unprepared Madden players off guard. That’s a big reason Madden players use it so often.  If an opponent can capitalize on indecision, they will use no-huddle to their advantage.  

Defending no-huddle is a necessary skill for Madden o­nline and league play alike just to keep the game fun. Like anything else, preparation is the best defense.  Don't be baffled by bypassed play selection screens. Develop a simple plan to keep opponent’s hurry up-offense off balance.

Long ago, Randall Cunningham demonstrated how a fast quarterback with an solid arm could change the game of football.  Madden NFL 2004's cover athlete Michael Vick took scrambling quarterbacks mainstream.  Because of the threats scrambling quarterbacks presented in Madden NFL 2004, two defensive assignments were added to Madden NFL 2005.  Ever since, speed is a premium at the quarterback position for Madden players and NFL organizations. You'll need tools in your game plan to neutralize fast passers.

Creating a defensive scheme is both important and difficult. Any scheme must possess a gimmick that is consistent with a common thread that cannot be easily discernible to opponents, or risk falling apart.  On the flip side, trying too hard to hide the theme makes the overall structure seem wildly incoherent and out of sync.  Good defensive schemes have a theme that is flexible, effective, and applies to every decision made for the defense.

There are three elements of football strategy: Personnel, Position, and Tempo; a strategic triangle.  With personnel, players opt to position players to force tempo.  With position, players attempt to regain a tempo advantage with personnel with speed. With tempo, players position personnel.  As with any competitive endeavor, defensive players must always consider how the offense will use the same aspects and offset offensive advantages.

Wanna win?  Virtually all coaches agree that winning the turnover battle is the single most important statistic used to determine the outcome of football games.  Madden games aren't any different.  The team that turns the ball over the least is usually the victor.  On the flip side, forcing turnovers on defense earns extra possessions and scoring opportunities for your team while decreasing the same for your opponents.  Simply put, playing good defense means taking the ball away from your opponent.
