Our Initial Thoughts of the Madden 19 LA Chargers Offensive Playbook :
3WR 1RB Scheme:
Shotgun Doubles Wk – This formation has 4 really good passing plays in TE Wheel, Double Post, Corner Strike and Y Cross to go along with an inside zone towards the side of the tight end which will be difficult for people who try to shoot the b gap to stop the inside zone
Shotgun Doubles Y Flex –This is one of my favorite formations this year as it is a spread offense and has the ability to flood the middle of the field or attack either sideline all without giving your opponent a tell. Y Sail, Flood, PA Deep Outs, and Slot Cross allow us to attack all areas of the field with little to no worry for the opponents user
Gun Trips TE – The exact same plays as last year, has all the answers you would need to dominate in the passing game (Pa Slot Corner, Drive Post, Inside Cross, Curl Flat, Double In Sail, PA Shot Wheel, Slot Screen, Inside Zone, HB Draw, X Spot, and PA Counter Go)
Single back Dice Slot – Sleeper passing formation with the plays PA Flow attacking the middle of the field and also flooding zones to the left, PA Draw shot which will allow you to attack with a deep crossing route/ hi-low read over the middle of the field which also doesn’t really get guarded by zone if they bite down with the user, PA Y-Corner will allow you to attack the sidelines on the right side of the field with a deep in route coming back over the middle of the field and Fade Smash will give you the ability to attack with the tight end as the primary crossing route to keep your opponent from simply manning him up with a defensive tackle which is a popular way to stop the tight end drags. Running game is pretty week but does have a HB Dive and a Power O.
2 TE 2WR Scheme:
Pistol Wing – Similar to the Single back wing formation from last year, this formation has a over powered running play in Strong Power to go along with two passing plays that are decent in PA Power O and TE Attack.
Single back Ace – One of the better single back ace formations since it has the plays Corner Strike, Skinny Posts, Y Shallow Cross and Inside cross to go along with an 01 Trap, HB Dive, and HB Stretch in the running game all while being a symmetrical formation.
Single back Wing Slot – Run game will consist of HB stretch, HB dive, counter weak while the passing game has some really nice passing plays in Inside Cross, PA Boot LT, PA FL Dive, TE Slot, U Drive Check, PA Fork and PA Post Shot. Another formation that allows you to run the ball semi-effectively and also is able to attack both sidelines along with the middle of the field. PA Post shot will have the glitchy crossing route that zones don’t guard (Besides purples and a pass commit/inverted coverage), U Drive Check forces our opponent to respect the deep in/post combo along with the drags underneath. PA Fork/TE Spot will be our plays to attack the sideline with flat/corner routes. Inside Cross is a nice quick hike play along with PA FL Dive and PA Boot LT gives us a motion play to force our opponent to respect motion by the slot receiver.
