In my madden 2003 season, pro difficulty, I had an interesting thought while using your Speed Quarter Spin Zone play. What I did was Shift my Left end over to take the RT, and barely nudge my right end over to make sure he takes the center. Your LOLB takes the RG, and your ROLB grabs the attention of both the LT and LG. Thus, aside from blockers in the backfeild, gives your fourth string corner a simple route to the quarterback , unblocked. The pressure created by the corner who usually only gets blocked by one halfback, forces the QB into the pocket, and makes him advance forward, in which case he is usually smacked by an end or one of your OLBs. If no backs are blocking, (or you get penetration from an end or OLB, the back being drawn over) your corner will usually sack the QB uncontested. While it does not work everytime, this play alone has gotten me an average of 5 sacks per game (7 min Quarters) and the pressure created usually nabs me a few INTs as well. Also, on a side note, my 4th string corner (78 overall, but with good speed) is now making pro bowl with 20 tackles and no INTs in week 10 Smile

Another funny note, if the offense tries to fool you with a pitch outside, the corner nails him for negative yardage all the time.

-Thanks for your time, KingFeej

I have noticed surprisingly good pressure out of Spin Zone as you have. It wasn't designed really for high sack counts, but seems to take advantage of matchup problems quite well. I've also had backup CBs playing the slot make the pro bowl based on tackles for loss, based somewhat on Speed Zone but probably mostly through Stuntman.
