GENERAL HINTS, CHEATS AND
Unlimited creation points: Go to "Rosters", then choose
"Edit Player". Select the players that you want to be rated 99. Go to
his attributes, then increase everything.
Easy tokens: Play two-minute drill and choose to play four players, all
with your profile. Set "Fire" the defense and the Vikings as your
teams. Next, use Singleback 4WR All Streaks for touchdowns all day.
Easy tokens (2): At the main menu, go into "Features", select
"Rosters", then go to the team you would like to defend you. For
example, select the Bengals, then go to their defense (CB, FS, SS and
Linebackers and Defensive Linemen). Change all of there speed attributes down to
0. Make a note of the original values so they can be restored later. Then, go to
the Two Minute Drill, select the Bengals as the defense, and change the
difficulty to All-Madden.. Select your team with your profile (Vikings
recommended) and you will rack up points against a team that cannot catch you at
all. Put Randy Moss at running back for even more points when you score or just
throw to him always..
Easy tokens (3): Play two-minute drill, and choose any team you
hate for the CPU's defense. Go to that team's roster and set all their defensive
players' speed to 0. Instead of throwing the ball, use a run play. It takes
about the same amount of time, but you will get more points for tokens when you
use a running play. The "Near" formation and "HB Toss" are
recommended. As always, use a fake field goal pass or fake run for the point
after the touchdown. It is possible to score over 68,000 points with well over
340 tokens per 2 minutes.
Run defense: Choose the 4-3 defense and use one of the plays that have an
OLB blitzing from the outside. Control the MLB and use L1 to shift your lineman
to the side that the tight end is on once the play starts. You should then have
a clear shot at the RB.
Better quarterback accuracy: Note what kind of quarterback you are
passing with. If you have someone such as Kurt Warner, you may have better
accuracy if you set your feet, then throw the ball. If you have someone like
Donovan McNabb, you might have better luck throwing on the run.
Better draft pick: If you have a first place team and you know its going
to be very late in the draft, trade with a last place team. Sometimes you can
even get a first and second round pick for just your first. This is a very good
way to get young players on your already good team.
Better draft pick (2): Get any player or draft pick you want during
franchise mode. After the regular season, such as during the playoffs or
immediately before the Superbowl, go to create a player and make a quarterback.
Make him 45 years old so that he will immediately retire when the season is
over. Next, make him a 99 overall. Sign him from the free agency and trade him
for any player or draft pick that you desire. You can do this as many times as
you need, and can get ten first round picks and every player desired.
Better draft pick (3): When you are in the off season, finish all the
tasks until you are to NFL Draft. When you are about to do the draft, save the
game. Then, do the draft. It does not matter who you pick. Go to "Trade
Player" and highlight "Age". Press Circle and view all your
rookies. Go through all the teams and write down all the rookies that have about
a 75 rating or above. Exit your franchise, then load the game again. Go to the
off season schedule, and select "NFL Draft". Draft as many of those
well rated rookies as possible.
Better trades: If you play with the salary cap penalties turned on in
franchise mode, it is better to trade the player(s) you wish to cut for another
team's draft pick. You will avoid penalties, keep your roster from becoming
full, and get another draft pick.
Better trades (2): Start a franchise and create a new coach (or make one
under the Coach Option/Job Openings screen). In Coach Options/Job Openings
screen, highlight your coach, then press Left or Right to select the team with
the player or draft pick you want. You are now the coach of that team. Trade the
player you want to your team. Then, return to the Job Openings screen in Coach
Options and select your original team. Back out and you will be coaching your
Get any player: Use the following trick to get any player in a trade
without the other team rejecting. In the franchise mode, create a player as a
quarterback and move his attributes until you get to 99 points. Then, put his
injury and stamina down to 0. This will not change the attribute point level.
Sign him as a free agent then trade him to any team for anybody you want. When
you play the team he is playing for, after a couple of plays he will either
become injured or will be taken out of the game for his weak stamina. No team
will refuse your trade and you will have any player you want on your team.
Get any player (2): When playing in franchise mode you can trade for any
player you want without having that trade turned down. Go into the create a
player menu and create a QB that is all 99s. Sign that player to your team then
trade him to another team that has a player that you want. To make the trick
even better, you can add another player from their team to the trade that is in
the 80s -- this will be a 2-for-1 trade. When the trade is complete, exit out to
the franchise main menu and enter back into the create a player menu. Go back
into the QB's attributes and edit them all the way down to 0s and then go back
into the trade screen. Take the second player in the deal and trade him back to
the team for the created QB. You can then start the whole process over by going
into the create a player menu and editing his attributes all the way up again.
Cheap players that are good: To make a receiver go to create player and
create the player as a quarterback. Give the player very low passing abilities
(zero) and very high catching and ball handling levels. The player will cost
very little because his quarterback skills are bad. You will have to sign him as
a quarterback but use him as a wide receiver. His salary will never go up
because he will not play as a quarterback. You can also change his number and
attributes in the edit player screen. You can also make a dirt cheap fullback by
eliminating his receiving skills.
Cheaper player: When you have an expensive player, you can release him
and sign him for less money.
Cheaper created players: When the free-agent signing period appears in
the off-season, go to the "Create-A-Player" menu and make a player
with very low attributes. He will want a low salary. Then, offer him a contract.
Before he accepts it, go to the "Create-A-Player" menu again and set
his attributes to anything desired. He should accept the contract you offered
him, and the other teams almost never bid on him.
Over the shoulder catch: When throwing the ball to a receiver that is
running a fly route, lob the pass (tap the button) instead of throwing a bullet
(holding the button). The receiver should catch the ball over his shoulder.
Break tackles: To easily break tackles as a running back, alternately
press L1 and R1 immediately before you get tackled.
Onside kick: To kick an onside kick, keep the arrow where it is. Do not
move it. Then, tap X(2) as quickly as possible. You should recover the onside
kick the majority of the time..
Fake audible: If you see defenders lining up where you know your
play is about to go, or are setting up about to blitz, press Square then L2.
Everyone will go back to their normal position and you can run your play.
Lower team's overall salary: One way to lower a team's overall salary is
to cut certain players' salaries. You can do this with players that have low
attributes but high salaries. To do this, go to "Rosters" and select
"Edit player". Select a player on the team that has a low overall
rating (anything under the low 80s) and has a high salary. When you choose to
edit the players "Attributes", you will notice that his salary
decreases. Do not change anything in his attributes and exit out. You have now
made your first budget cut of the season.
Easier gold in mini-camp mode: Create a player and trade him to the team
that you are doing the drill with. Make sure that the created player is playing
the position of the person that you are trying to complete the drill with. For
example, Ronde Barber is the corner back in the Defensive Swat Pass drill. If
you create a corner back and make his attributes all 99, put him on the
Buccaneers and make him the starting or number one cornerback. Then, he will do
the drill. You may do this with any person on any drill. You may also make the
people who you are going against in the drill "sorrier". If you know
their names, go to their attributes and turn them all the way down.
John Madden's name spoken: Create a new team and name the new coach
"John Madden". Melissa will be able to say his name during the game.
Thanksgiving commentary: Set the system date to the third Thursday in
Christmas commentary: Set the system date to December 25 to hear John
Madden say "Merry Christmas to all".
New Year's commentary: Set the system date to January 1.
