Wildcat Users Fear This Defense
Madden 23 | Beginner Defense Tips
Back in Madden 20, I gave up 54510451 yards to a wildcat user. He had me so down he had me foreseeing indeed.com commercials before they even existed.
After having been demoralized for the day, I re-grouped, hit practice mode, and figured it out.
