Hi folks

 

Going to try and get into the NFL this season.

 

I've been playing the Madden demo on the PS3 to try and learn the rules but there are still lots of stuff that I don't get or need a decent explanation.

 

Is there anywhere that has an NFL for dummies kind of guide?

 

Thanks!

You seem to be in the same position I was in a few years ago. My step-brother tried to get me into it as he played American football at amateur level in secondary school, but just seemed to have the most complicated game mechanics ever.

Structurally it's more similar to cricket rather than football or rugby in so much as every play (ball in cricket) is an isolated event. Once the play is dead that's it until the next play begins i.e. there isn't the flow like football (proper) or rugby.

I've only seen the highlights, but it looks like it was an amazing game! 108yd return, and big scores from both the Saints and Packers makes for a pretty good opener.

 

This Randall Cobb rookie looks like he could be huge, if he plays like that consistently. Fair enough, it was only one game, but the future is bright for him. Add in Aaron Rodgers throwing seriously well, and this is going to be a good season for the Packers.

 

What are everyone's thoughts on the choice to throw the ball on 4th and inches, in the 3rd? Could things have been different had they kicked a FG?

I'm usually very conservative when it comes to going for it on fourth down but in the context of the game, New Orleans were right to go for it. I certainly wouldn't have called a pass play though. Brees circling backwards reminded me of Bob Griese getting sacked by Bob Lilly back in Super Bowl VI on that play!
