Play as a really good team. Play against either a
European team, or the Monsters or mummies.
After the coin toss, set the A.I. in every
category all the way up for you. And all the way
down for the computer.
Depending on how well you play, and if you play
at All-Madden level, you should have about 600 to

Tokens For Madden Cards
If you want tokens to get more Madden Cards just
sell(if you have it) the card with John Madden on
the front. When you sell it you get all the
tokens plus, when you buy your next pack, you
will get the card back! You can keep doing this
over and over and over. It'll work everytime!
Blocking a punt is too easy! Choose to return a
punt(center), never choose to block a punt.
This is based on whichever side the opposing team
has their last blocker before the punter. If he's
on the right, you come from the left, if he's on
the left, you come from the right. Shift your
linemen to whichever side their last blocker is,
take one of your outside guys from that same
side, run him over to the opposite side, line him
up about two body lengths away from the last
lineman. At the snap of the ball press your
directional pad down and hit the "O" button for a
run burst. Keep going more than likely if you've
timed it right, you will tackle the punter, if
not you will have to jump and block it.
Sacks & More Sacks
If you want to pile up sacks in a game, use the 3-
4 deffense, choose OLB Blitz. Shift your linemen
to the right, shift your linebackers to the left,
take your middle linebacker and put him between
the LG & Center of the opposing team. You will be
this linebacker, do not put him as a down
lineman, that's too close. As soon as the center
snaps the ball hit your "o" button & press down
on the control pad. You will run through the line
and hit the QB quick! You will get blocked after
awhile, if this happens, do everything the
opposite way, instead of Linemen to the right, go
left and so on.
Saving Cap Room
When signing your free agents, you can lower their requested amount a 100 thousand if you keep the contract short.

Always Get The Ball
First under the settings turn off penalties.
Then when you're in the game always do an onside
kick. Move the arrow as far as possible to the
left and down as far as possible. Then kick the
ball you should always get the ball unless you
kick it to hard and it goes out of bounds.
Get 300 Or More Tokens
Here is a very easy (I mean REALLY easy) way to
get madden tokens. First go to the main menu and
select rosters under options. Select any team and
go to the edit player selection. Change all of
the player stats to 15. Save your roster and go
to Two Minute Drill. Choose the team you changed
for the defense. Then choose a profile to save it
to. Choose the Ravens (or a better team if you
have on)and select All Madden level and begin
playing. Find a good runing play and keep doing
it if you score a touchdown. If the defense
brings you down, then call timeout. If you scored
about 4-8 you should have around 300 tokens!
Easier 5yds.-Touchdown Completions
First you the get the Giants, then you pick J. Fassel's playbook. After that, when your on offense, you pick singleback, then you pick WR Quick in. When you throw, throw to R1. But before you throw, go to the side that R1 is going to, then throw.
Dancing Into The Endzone
When your player is wide open, press L1 or R1 before running into the endzone and
your player will do a dance.
Easier Compleation Or First Down
For an easier compleation, or first down choose J. Fassel's play book. Then choose the "Single Back" formon. Then, after choose the play "Corners." Before you get sacked throw it to the "O." Although the catch may go out of bounce its ok. You have till forth down. Note: This works the best if you use the giants and Ike Hiller as the reciever.
Always Get Coin Toss
After you first see the players running onto the
field for the coin toss, start tapping X. Keep
tapping X so that you pick HEADS right away and
stop tapping once the ref starts to flip the
coin. You will always win the toss but this only
works if your the visting team.
Madden Takes A Closser Look
When your playing madden 2002 in any mode, you can get a cool camera view by jumping into the end zone at the corner closest to you. When the replay comes on you should see the black above & below when it is like that look at the replay. It will stop as you jump into the end zone and rotate (like the matrix) then start to move again.
On a punt or field goal on the snap press triangle. If the person don't kick that mean you can't see or you are doing it wrong.
Get An Extra Blocker While Passing
Before you snap the ball, press the triangle button (hot route), then a reciever of your choice then R-2. This will give you an extra blocker while passing. You can even press a running back icon.
Run Fast At A Kick Off
When you kick the ball off to the team press triangle and you will run much faster.
Learn The Basics
Before trying to create a franchise you should learn the game first. You should go to practice first and that will help you learn plays, then maybe tryin trying 2 minute drill. If you spend quality time on those you will be ready to start to play.
Flashing Main Menu
When you get to the main menu, hold the down button and the screen will flash.
Change Player Appearance
Enter the options screen and select "Rosters", go to "Edit Player", then go
to "Player Appearance". You can make any player in the NFL look different than
they really do.
To do a better catch than the normal one, where the player throws his hands in
the air at the last second and most of the time misses, simply press Catch a
second or a half a second before you reach the target of the ball, or before the
ball reaches the receiver. The player will do a better looking and more effective
catch, such a one handed catch, a jump catch, a spin catch, an over the shoulder
catch (good for lobs), or a better diving one if the ball is out of reach.
For easy tokens, go to the two minute drill screen. Choose two to four accounts,
and the Admirals for defense. Choose your team and make sure you choose a profile
to save to, then start playing. Keep throwing to WR2 and you should get a lot of
touchdowns. It is possible to get a score over 33,000 with this trick.
Franchise Expansion Draft
In the off-season in franchise, save, then create a team. Load the franchise and enter the team in the expansion draft.
When everyone is far away from you, and you are running for a touchdown, hold X and hit either L1, R1, L2, or R2 and your player will do a dance.
Infinite Creation Points
Create a player, then go to "Edit Player" at the roster screen. Press Up or Down
to choose the player you want to edit. Press Right to get to the speed category.
Press X, then press X again.
After the first season in franchise mode, do the expansion draft for the Houston
