I'm currently playing on PS3 and doing a franchise with the Steelers. Does anyone have good tips for getting sacks? Woodley has 10 and he's 88. Harrison is 97 and only has 3. What gives?

yea I had the same problem, Harrison for me had like 90 tackles, but 2 sacks...the playbook doesnt have the 3-4 defense, if they did, I cant find it, so I can barely get effective blitzes.

Are you using Tomlin's playbook? There's 3-4 D's in there. There's the over, under, even, stack and normal 3-4. I can't even get alot of tackles w/Harrison. My D is number 1 overall and my leading tackler is Clark followed by Troy. They seem to come up extremely fast in run support while my lbs get blocked.

Are you kidding? Have you noticed that almost every thread in this area is about Madden:laughing:

Anyway, I just picked up Madden 08. I like it a lot better than 09.

What??? 3-4 is the Steelers base defense in the Madden games and has been for years!

If you want to give Harrison more sacks, switch him from right to left every now and then. Or when you're doing a blitz, I think it's L2 to switch the defense alignment.

Well on my playbook it seems more like 4-3. the base is 4 Lineman, 3 Linebackers.

Make sure you have Tomlin's playbook selected. It is 3-4...

Right...and I know they even have their nickle defense where the outside LB's are the defensive ends.

As others have said, the 3-4 is the base defense in Tomlin's playbook. In fact, it offers about a half dozen variations of the 3-4 defense.

I'm now playing my second season with the Steelers on Madden 09', and I too have noticed that it is particularly difficult to get sacks. I'm going into week 15, and I only have 27 sacks on the season, which oddly enough ranks me #1 in the league. :confused:

Cowher's playbook is still available on Madden 09. I hate to admit this but I use New England's 3-4 defensive playbook, it's much better than the other 3-4 books.

To get sacks, use a DE, Press R1, L1,or sprint (mix it up) and when u get close to the QB. press square and u shud dive in and hit him.
