MADDEN 18 BIG DIME 236 FLIPPED BREAKDOWNS

 

In this section of our Madden 18 Defensive Domination Ebook, We take a look at the Big Dime 236 Formation! In my opinion, this is one of the best formations in the entire game! It is dime personnel giving you 6 db’s on the field at the same time, but because of the alignment it is pretty good against most runs! Also, we have LB’s where you would have DE’s in a regular dime, this allows us to make coverage adjustments we would not be able to make with a 4 down line!

    • Flip the formation at the playcall screen. Be sure to turn off auto-flip in your settings.
