Re: How Do You Stop The Read Option...?

I feel like the QB keeping the football out of the read option is almost a cheese play in this game at times. It seems like the defense gets fooled every single time.

I agree. At times it seems that my players move out of the way for the QB.

I play as the strong safety, which ever the DE goes for I go for the other one. I can imagine that if you used a LB you could do the same.

Re: How Do You Stop The Read Option...?

Not cheese as it is dependent on a read...if you're getting killed with the QB set your QB Option Defense to Aggressive...I defend it by playing the DE on the side the QB will read & get up field about 1 yard so I can defend either one...if you know it is coming though the best way is to set to Conservative so the DE covers the HB and blitz from that same side...I run a lot of read option out of the spread & when this is done to me of course I read QB keeper but then get rocked by an OLB or SS...I'm pretty solid at running it & that kind of D gives me the most trouble

Re: How Do You Stop The Read Option...?

I always had a little more success if I turned option defense to "aggressive" so they would focus on the QB. You can also try putting the read DE into QB spy.

I didn't even think about that because there some defensive plays that have both DE in QB spy...can't remember which formations though

i was wondering about this also. i play a friend who uses it with Bridgewater and my entire dline and lb's bite on the fake handoff leaving him with tons of room to run. i know it's coming and can do nothing. may have to try the option setting

spy does not work, the way to stop is not to blitz or pass commit
