Easy punt blocks
To block punts, its easier to turn the offsides penalty off to get a head start on the offensive line. Choose a corner or a running back (someone that is fast enough and tall enough) and do one of the two; blitz the kicker and tackle him, which takes yardage off your opponent's rushing yards in the game, or jump and block the kick. This is not a play that works all of the time. However it usually works in the punt return play, and not the punt block play. Also, it never hurts to use a little play action once every series or so.
Choose to punt out of bounds left or right. The defense will not go into punt coverage. Simply move the arrow to the middle of the field and just boom it. If a returner does get back in time to field it, he will muff it most of the time. This works great for making sure the opposing team has a long field to work with, as well as getting your Punter All-American status.
When you line up to punt the ball away, point the arrow straight down. If timed correctly, you will punt the ball at least 70 yards almost every time.
When you are defending a receiver and they make a catch, press (Y), You can use that as quicker tackle, as well as intercept passes.
When kicking off, choose "Kickoff Left" or "Kickoff Right", whichever way the wind is blowing. The CPU will almost always pick "Return Middle". When you kick the ball, the return man will be alone and your coverage can nail him around the 15 yard line. Be careful not to kick the ball out of bounds.
When you get a QB crossed over the line by having a profile to get, you can cross the line of scrimmage and still throw the football.
