Two Defensive Ends or Two Defensive Tackles?
Well...this is my team.
OLB Derrick Thomas
CB Rod Woodson
CB Lem Barney
OLB Greg Lloyd
DT Keith Millard
QB Jim Harbaugh
RB Christian Okoye
TE Pete Metzelaars
WR Rob Moore
WR John Taylor
DT William Perry
I am wondering...what is more effective? Two Defensive Ends or Two Defensive tackles?
If I go after two DE I am thinking of getting Youngblood and Clyde Simmons instead of William Perry and Millard.
I use two DEs(Bethea and Simmons) and love it. I originally did a DE and DT, and once I switched to 2 DEs I never looked back. Never tried 2 DTs so can't help you there.
If you get 2 DEs try Elvin Bethea, he's got a really nice swim move and gets past his blocker pretty quickly. For silver DEs I've tried Youngblood, Too Tall, and Bethea. In order of great to worst I'd have to say it goes Too Tall, Bethea, Youngblood. Youngblood is really good and I like him, but for some reason I was having better luck with Bethea(maybe you can do better with him). And Simmons is great at the pass rush and run coverage btw.
Youngblood is the best defensive end in the game. Followed by dexter manley and harvey martin
get 1 DT and 1 DE.. and Sub the DE on the right side. and have the DT on the left side..
I think regardless of which way you go - both ways are likely to be effective. If you take DE's then make those DTs run stuffers. If you take DT's then make your DE's Pass rushing. Then see which work best for you.
DT's are more for stopping the run, and DE's are more for pass rushing
I always get one of each...usually simmons and fridge
I got the late 80's early 90's philly D-line...Reggie White, Keith Millard, Jerome Brown, Clyde Simmons..its rather fun
I use Reggie White, Dan Hampton, William Perry & Jack Youngblood. With Jessie Tuggle ILB, Lloyd OLB. Nothing moves by them.
^^^ Dan Hampton is a under used beast in this game
2 DE's works pretty well but I prefer 1 DE and 1 DT.
I've made that exact same team before with youngblood instead.
