Avoid The Cap
The salary cap is pretty easy to manipulate. If you don't like a player for whatever reason, than re-negotiate his contract so that he doesn't get a signing bonus. Than work out a trade with another team and you won't take a hit against the salary cap for trading him.

Level 2: #204 Bingo! Cheat

Players become coaches
Great players that retire in franchise mode can return to be coaches. Wait a couple of years after your favorite star retires, and he will show up in the coaching free agent list to be signed as an assistant or head coach.

In owner mode, go through a couple seasons, then in the off-season select "Staff". Select "Hire Coach". You can select old players as head, offensive, defensive, and special teams coaches.

Free advertising
Just before a home game, put all advertising up and play your game. After the game, do not sim week. Go out and set the advertising to zero. Sim week and you will get 100% attendance, but pay nothing.

Determine if defense is playing man to man coverage
Send a player in motion. If a defensive player follows him, then the corners are playing man to man coverage. Remember that the safeties may have zone and a LB could cover a WR (should be an easy completion).

Easy interceptions
While in defense, choose the play Nickel-Normal, go to cover 2. Now that you chose the play move your line in, your LB to the left, and your coverage in. Note: This only work about 85% of the time in rookie mode, sometimes in pro, if you are lucky on all-pro, and almost never in all-Madden settings.
