Hey there. . . you seem to be the Madden 2002 PS1 expert on this board, so I'm turning to you in my time of need. . . I need some pointers. . . I am going insane with this game. . . I cannot complete a pass. What am I doing wrong. Everytime I pass, I then switch over to the intended target. But when I press triangle for the receiver to catch the ball, he just never catches it. It seems to me that the trouble is he jumps for about one second. . and its driving me batty. Either that or magically there are two guys who cut in front of me and I get picked off. I am still playing on ROOKIE SETTING mind you, and I still manage about 3 picks a game(always in the Red Zone, I might add.) and thousands of incompletions. I would appreciate any pointers you have as to how to make receiver catch the you-know-what-ing ball. Thanks!!!!
First off you should never press triangle when passing or whatever except when you have to jump. Also make sure you spread the ball around and don't keep passing to the same guy( depending on what team your on it may be tough but you have to). Use shotgun once in awhile. I learned a tip from somewhere that you should wait until :03 or :02 to snap the ball and that'll throw the defense off. Lastly, you should pass top the man that looks more open to you and remember taht when you press the reciever button and hold it it will get to the receiver quicker but if you tap the button it will take longer. And remember give the ball to your running back once in awhile.
