  1. I want to pre-order your Gridiron Guide 14 for Madden 25 & NCAA 14…Question is when will the guide be released, and of the schemes that you listed:Air Raid, Pistol, Spread, West Coast, Run & Shoot, Compression, Option Etc. Which scheme, in your opinion, is the most frustrating and difficult for the defense to stop. I use the Seahawks.
    Thanks and Your guides have been very good thus far!

  2. Lenny, I am big fan of the compression offense, so for me I would say that one. Now others may say the option or spread.


  3. Hey Guys,
    Can you say me if i buy the guide when it will release ? Thanks you guys for all you do for the comunity, it’s very impressive !
    I’m a french fan of football and specialy “my” niners since the year 1990 ! I’ m a rare guy on this country who is crazy of football in the NFL and even to understand the game !!!!! I love to play madden on PS3 too and i play this game since 1992, my first times was on SEGA MASTERSYSTEM and MEGADRIVE a longtime before PLAYSTATION or X-BOX !!!! For all the guys who are interested to discuss and exchange on football and NFL, I give you my mail : le.gregory31@yahoo.fr
    ( idiots are prohibited on my mail pleeeeeeeaaaaaaase !!!!! ).

    • Greg, the Gridiron Guide 14 will be released on August 27th. I have been playing Madden like you since 1992 on the old Sega. Good times back then.


  4. Thanks Kobra !
    I’ m gonna buy this guide certainly next week because last year GRIDIRON GUIDE 13 was amazing ! So interesting with the adition of FILM’S ROOM and more…. One if not the best guide available on football for madden’s gamers !

    • DK, it’s web based, meaning you login into it to view it. There is no download or actual book that is sent to you. It’s compatible with any web browser, plus works with Iphone, Ipad, ect.. I hope that answers your question.

      If you have any more questions, feel free to post them.


  5. I bought the Gridiron Guide 13 last year and was really happy with it. A lot of content for what I paid for the guide. I plan buying it before I pick up Madden 25.

  6. Kobra…just got the guide. It looks great. I look forward to seeing all that it has to offer. Keep up the great work.

    • Tony thanks, doing the best I can with what I have to work with. I really enjoy putting them together. I am adding more content as we speak, so please keep checking back.


  7. I just bought the guide last night. It has a lot of great content for new and veteran players. It reminds me of the old VG Sports Virtual playboks that they use to do back in the day. Anyways for those looking for a Madden guide with a lot content for low price, the Gridiron Guide 14 is worth taking a look at.

  8. Crazy amount of content in the Gridiron Guide 14. I bought it a couples of days ago and I am still reading the pass sections of the guide. Kobra, I can tell you have a lot of passion for this game based on the amount of time you must of put into this guide.

    Long time customer,

  9. M. Ritts, there isn’t a guide to download, but instead it’s web based. Meaning you have to login to view the guide. Maybe in the future we can make it available as an ebook to download. I think that’s what you are asking for.


  10. I am very interested in the guide. Do you have to use custom playbooks, because my league doesn’t allow them. I remember you used to be the man with the Saints playbook. What do you like this year Kobra? I’ve heard good things about Minnesota, and Tampa Bay. Lots of unique plays in New England as well. I look forward to your thoughts, and will be buying the guide ASAP. Thanks man. Been a long time.

    • Scott, no you don’t have to use them. I’ll admit, I have been modifying the Texans playbook and the 46 defensive book somewhat this season. However, the guide, I don’t talk to much about custom formations. The Gridiron Guide 14 is more like the VG Sports Virtual playbook that we use to release annually. A lot of tips and strategies that are based on this year’s game. Also there are ton of tools in the guide to use. BTW, Whiplash, thanks for posting. Always glad to see a familiar face. I miss the old times more than you will everyone know.


  11. Kobra forgive me. I bought Madden 25 this year without buying the guide first Big mistake on my part. Let me say, i honestly only played madden 1 time since i bought it. I prefer to go through your guide and videos first! For anyone that doesn’t think his guide is worth it, i bought the gridiron 13 guide. So I was like, ok, seems legit. I tried it. and my horrible losing record finally went to a winning record of 102 wins and 97 losses. That’s better than 46 wins and 77 loses. 🙂 I made a pdf of every page of just the defensive part of the guide and printed it at work. I wound up with about 400 pages of info!. Dear God, that was just on defense! I didn’t even do the offensive side yet. I don’t know how much different this years guide could be from last years, but i am definitely buying The Gridiron 14. I found this site by sheer accident and never even heard of Kobra. The man does a phenomenal job with the videos and the guide. Buy his guide, you will not be disappointed! … Now if i could just get him to coach my eagles……:-)

  12. Mike, a big thanks. I am glad the guide was able to help out. As far as this year’s guide, I added a bunch more content and keep building off last year’s guide. My goal is to keep building the guide up and make it one big encyclopedia of strategies and information for football video games.


  13. Kobra, i need to change my email address for the info that i get from your site. do you have an email address that i can contact you by?

  14. This is the year that I’ll jump into this guide! Last year I was very interested in getting it, but shortage of funds kept me away from it. This time, I’m gonna get it, because I love Kobra’s insight of the game. He doesn’t just shows the set ups, he explains and teaches stuff, which is very good for a guy like me, from Portugal, not very savvy about football.
    Just a couple questions.
    On defense, I run mostly Nickel normal and a couple of 46 here and there. How much stuff do you have from those 2 formations?
    On offense, I run NO, mostly Singleback Tight Slots. Any schemes around that formation?
    Thanks and keep up the great work.

    • Rui Neves, thanks for the feedback. I do try to teach football strategies and concepts, rather than showing glitches and cheats. I just think it’s a better way of doing things. As far as the Nickel Normal and 46. There is a breakdown of the Nickel Normal, plus two blitz set ups. Also breakdown of the Nickel 2-4-5 and blitz setups. The 46 Bear is broken down, along with two blitz setups. The X’s O’s Filmroom has more blitz setups from both the 46 Bear and 46 Normal. I am going to add the 46 Under to the filmroom as well.

      Nothing covered in the guide with the Singleback Tight, but I can add it to the filmroom as I like that formation as well.


  15. I was looking to purchase the GridIron Guide 14. When I click the Order Now button, I get directed to purchase a membership and not the guide. How do I purchase the Guide?

  16. Hi,

    Can I use the Gridiron 14 ebook for play on the XBox One?

    If not,do you have any other books geared towards the XBox One?


  17. The only way I can obtain this guide is to spend money just to sign up? What if I just want to buy the guide without paying an additional amount?

  18. George, when you sign up, you get access to the Gridiron Guide. It doesn’t cost anything extra. Please keep in mind the guide was based on last year’s football video game and not for this year’s.
