Hints & Cheat Codes
Use Madden Cards indefinitely:
You must have a profile made and loaded. Do the training mode in the Coaches Corner. Here, you earn "tokens", used a points. Whenever you complete a certain play, you earn tokens. Do every play that the game gives you. Try to do them correctly so you can earn as many tokens a possible. When you have completed each play, you can earn no more tokens. Save your stats in the profile. Then, go to the Madden Card section. In this section, make the selection under the Challenge Status section (should be in the middle). In here you can buy cards, just like baseball trading cards. Cards are bought in packs. Every card has a player (boosts stats by certain percent), veteran player that you can sign to your roster, Superbowl team (for example, the 1999 Rams), created team, new stadium, cheerleader cards, and cheat cards. The cheat cards are cheats, just like in Madden 2000 or 2001 (and some new cheats). You can buy the cards with the tokens you have just earned. Almost every card can normally only be used once. Save the profile after you have all the cards you want. You can activate all the cards you want, and after the game, most of them will be gone. However they will only remain gone if you save your profile after the game. First, save the game, but do not save the profile. Restart the game. Start the game again and load the profile. Then, select Madden Cards: Activate. If done correctly, all of your cards should be back to the amount that they were. Do this after every game and you should be able to use the cheats indefinitely. Note: This was done in franchise mode.
Choose any team, then pick select D. Jauron's playbook. Go to "Singleback Normal" and pick "HB Sweep". You will run to the left. Keep tapping X. Then, one person will appear, press L1 to juke left. You will now be free to run. Make sure you are tapping X at all times.
Go to Dime formation, then select "Double Slot". Watch your defensive ends go for a sack. "Line Shift" will also work as well. This is under the Raiders handbook.
Stop running for a moment. You can sometimes easily avoid being tackled. Sometimes you will need to juke, spin, or stiff arm to get past defenders.
To get good protection on kick returns, choose "Onside Kick" as your play. When you run back the ball, you will usually get past the 20.
Go to trade a player and select the St. Louis Rams. Trade the back up QB for Peyton Manning, then trade their back up HBs for Edgerinn James and Eddie George. Next, trade their back up FBs for Mike Allstott, Tony Richardsons or Larry Centers. Keep Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt. Trade the rest for Randy Moss, Eric Moulds, Cris Carter, Rod Smith, Ed Mccaferry, Jonny Morton, Hermon Moore, Antonio Freeman, and Marvin Harrison. Then, trade the TE for Tony Gonzalaz, Shannonn Sharpe, or Frank Wycheck.
Determine first down:
When you pass or run the ball, and it is close to a first down, watch the yellow line. If it disappears fast, it is a first down. If it fades away, it is not.
