Due to the fact that the punt blockers do not like to block very much, you should select the "Punt Block" formation instead of any other punt return formation. With the "Punt Block" formation, the punting team will not be spread out, therefore allowing your blockers to somewhat block for you; which in turn will give you more time to field the ball and have a little space to start something big.
This trick works with any kicker. When you are kicking off, select "Onside Kick" when the return team is switching formation. When they are set, take the power bar all the way to the top, but do not select it. Bring it all the way down so that the power is at 31. Next, make your accuracy 97 to 99. The ball will hit the ground and go up straight up in the air every time. Have one of your Kick Off that is close to the ball sprint toward it. This makes all your players follow, and you will get it every time.
Be a defensive lineman and back up a few feet. When the play starts, immediately run forward and hitsick an offensive lineman. He will fall down and your person will still be running fast towards the quarterback. Then, sack him.
Pause game play, then go to the settings. Go to the penalties, then turn off offsides. You will now be able to hold [Run] and never cross the line of scrimmage. Grab a linebacker and set a new record for sacks in a game.
Take the best wide receiver on your team and put him in the tightend position. Audible his route so he does a fly (straight) route. Because he has such a low overall rating, they might just have a line backer on him or he might not even be covered. Throw it to him and he will easily be able to burn the defense.
Easy blocked field goals and punts
When playing against the CPU and it is a punt or field goal situation, switch to the end player on defense. If the opposing punt team is in a regular punt formation, select punt block on defense. The offense will adjust to a protection formation. If not, this is easy. Before the last player makes his adjustment, he puts his hands on his knees. If you begin to charge at the kicker you should not get a penalty if timed correctly. You will get an extra jump on the kicker and should tackle him or block the punt or field goal.
Easy training camp points
When on offense, select an offense with three receivers. Trip Bunch in Single Back formation works very well. Put the defense on goal line Zone CB cover. By doing this, no one rushes your QB, and once your receiver gets past the zone, they are left unguarded in the endzone for a guaranteed 48 points per play almost all of the time. This should work with most short zone coverages and does not take many attempts to learn which receiver to pick, mostly anyone running a long slant.
Booth review under two minutes
When under two minutes in the second or fourth quarter, when a play is questionable press [R] + [L] when you return to the play selection screen. Booth will then review the play most of the time it is overturned.
When you play as the Eagles against the Ravens and score a touchdown with T.O., dive in the endzone by pressing [X]. He will do a Ray Lewis dance in the endzone as a celebration.
If you are playing as either Donovan McNabb or Daunte Culpepper and you get tackled into the endzone scoring a touchdown, they will do their trademark dances. Daunte will "get his roll on" and Donovan will do the moonwalk.
When playing as the Steelers and Antwaan Randle El scores a touchdown, press [X]. He will make a showoff jump, and after that he will sometimes do the same slide as he did in the 2002 Divisional Playoffs against the Browns, after he returned a punt for a touchdown.
With a player named Troy Siegel (a drafted rookie three seasons into a franchise), Al Micheals will call him "Simian" in his commentary when he makes a play.
Increase salary cap
Use the following trick to increase your salary cap by millions. This works with or without fantasy draft. First, completely simulate the draft (faster) or you can pick your players yourself. Trade for all the players you want. After satisfied with your team , have one extra player in every position. Select a player, go to "Edit Player", then to "Information". Go down to position and change the players position. Then, release the edited player. Resign the player (his wanted salary is a lot cheaper). Do this to all your players except the extra ones, which you should get rid of. For an great FB, turn Jamal Lewis (HB) into a FB. All line backers make good DEs. Turn QBs into WRs (except M. Vick, who should be turned into a FS). Turn HBs, FBs, and TEs into MLBs. Turn all OL into DEs. Turn all DL into OL. Turn all LBs into HBs. Turn all WRs into HBs. Turn all DBs into WRs. WRs, SSs, FSs, and CBs, are difficult to do this with trick. First, you have to have them TEs for one year, then in the next offseason turn them into LBs for a year. You can then release them, resign them, then turn them back to what you had them at originally.
Sign created player with high attributes for three years
When you create a player, make him a free agent. Then, get his attributes up to 75. Next, sign the player for any team desired. Go to that team's rosters and edit his attributes. You can make it as high as 99. When you go to franchise mode with the team the player you created will be on the team with a contract for three years.
Easy first round first pick
Do the following in franchise mode to get a good rookie draft pick. Go to create a player. Make his age 45. Set his years pro at 27. He does not need a name, leave it at "New Player". Skip over "Build", "Appearance", and "Equipment". Go to attributes and set "Awareness" to 99. Then, go to "Throw Power" and "Throw Accuracy" and make them both 99. Exit and save your created player. Then, sign the player. Trade him to the team with the first round first pick. You should now have the first pick in the draft, almost 99% of the time.
Use the following trick to get the first pick in every round in the draft. First, turn off the trade deadlines. Then, trade all of your picks with the team with the worst record before the wild card week. You will get all of their picks, and if you have a good season, you can even trade one of your picks for two of theirs.
Get your team in first place at a good record at week 13 to 16. Try to get about twelve wins. Then, go to "Standings" in "Play Week" to learn which team is worst. Go to "Trade Player" and select your first round pick. Go to the worst team and select their first and second round picks. Next, go to the second worst team and trade your second, third and fourth picks for their first and fourth round pick.
Create low paid all-star QB
Create a punter or kicker with all his attributes at maximum, including passing. You will sign him for a low salary simply because he is a kicker. Then, set him as the starting quarterback on the depth charts as the season begins. You will now have the best kicker/punter and QB in the league. You may also maximize all passing attributes and take the kicking attributes down to sign him at an even lower price. This is most recommended if you only rarely kick.
Getting good players
Use the following trick to get a great team in franchise mode without a high salary cost. Start a new franchise. Pick a team. Do a fantasy draft and pick all the worst players. Then, release all of them and make your team from scratch, through create-a-player mode. Once done with the height, faces, etc., do not change the attributes. Save the player and sign him. Once you sign him, go back to create-a-player. Select his name and change all his attributes to maximum. Repeat this until you have a stacked team. The reason that all the worst players were selected is to keep you from having a high cap penalty during the next season. Note: This will take a few hours to complete.
As you know, in franchise mode you can find all the players with the longest contracts and upgrade all their stats before going into franchise mode. However, what you may not know is you can sign players of monumental talent to the most mundane of contracts once in franchise mode. For example, if two years into the franchise you cannot afford a pricey running back, create a safety and put "Tackle" all the way down and trick out all the requirements for a soon perennial All-pro back. You can sign him to a seven year $1.96 million contract. You can do this with all positions. For example, a wide receiver, create a quarterback and take down "THA" and "THP".
Before going into franchise mode, go to "View Rosters". Go to any player that you want on your fantasy team. Next, edit that player and go to the "Information" screen. Change the player's position to something different than what they started at. For example, edit Randy Moss and change his position from "WR" to "HB". This will make his overall stats for the new position low, because they do not play it. Continue editing the position of the players that you want on your fantasy team. Note: There are some players that cannot change positions because there are too few players at that position on the team they are on. Once you are done editing, go to franchise mode, turn "Fantasy Draft" on, select your team, then start the draft. Sign the players during the draft that are available that you were not able to change positions, then simulate the rest. Once the draft is over, go to the rosters then to "Free Agents". Go to the positions that you changed your players to and sign them for seven years and for the least amount possible. Note: Some of the players may have been drafted because they were still decent at the new position. Release the players from your team as you are signing the players you picked to allow enough room on the roster. You can trade for the players that you edited and got drafted. Once you get all the players that had edited positions, edit them again and change their positions back to what they normally play/ You will be able to have the players you wanted and for a low price.
Making players suffer
If there is a player you dislike, do the following to make him suffer. Go to "Features", then to "Rosters". Select his team then choose the player and go to "Attributes". Reduce his injury to "0". This may take awhile; you may also want to set the game to four or five minute quarters.
