     Welcome to my NFL2K1 Faq! I decided to make this faq because I finally 
    finished my WWF Royal Rumble Faq and I needed something to work on so 
    here it is. This is the sequel to the best football game and arguably 
    the best Dreamcast game out! I decided to follow in DreThugs' 
    footsteps(Where is he anyway?) and use personal strategy and glitches in 
    my faq. So If anybody has something to contribute feel free to 
    Preferably to my E-Mail. So On With The Faq!

    *5. Strategy*
    *************
    
    If you have any tips please feel free to send them.
    
    Offense Tips
    -Always check where and who you're receivers are before a play.
    -Turn Maximum passing on that way if you're in trouble you can lead a 
    receiver.
    -Never Throw the ball away unless you're being blitzed.
    -Unlike most other games where the spin move is just inserted to make 
    people happy it's very effective in this game and is a much faster way 
    of getting around an opponent, one on one, than the stiff arm method.
    
    
    Defense Tips
    -Don't always blitz the quarterback, if they pass you're pretty much 
    screwed.
    -A good way to get to the QB without sending linebackers  
    is to use a play that will cross the DT with the DE. I use the Bucs, so 
    I use Warren Sapp. Once the ball is snapped use the speed burst button 
    to get outside and around the LT and dive for the QB. Sometimes a RB 
    will be there, and about half the time you can get around him. The QB 
    will throw away the ball a lot because of the pressure. I created a play 
    where my where my DT's and DE's both cross, having the DT's cross out. 
    This also makes it almost impossible for RB to run up the middle.
    -To Sack The QB- Right Before the ball is snapped use the *x* button to 
    pump up the crowd. The repeatedly hit A and when the ball is snapped you 
    will be in the backfield before the QB can pass the ball and before the 
    running back can get out of the backfield. 
    
    
    
    Special Team Tips
    -Never kick/punt out of bounds unless you kick behind the endzone.
    -The easiest way to block a punt is by taking your left DE and moving 
    out about 3 yards past the furthest left offensive linemen move up to 
    the line of scrimmage and anticipate the snap, I start to go when the 
    kick power bar starts to move then run around the man who attempts to 
    pick you up and do an a line right for the kicker , dive and tackle him, 
    don't attempt to jump and block it.

    1. Torcha - Quit in the first quarter after he was down by 14points

    gain of 65yards 
    
    3. pimpie-I was beating him 14-0 in the first and he quit. he had 2 
    players also. 
    
    4. "kevinnash" and he quit after one series in the first quarter. He 
    went for it on 4th and 12 on his own 10 yard line and didn't make it. So 
    he promptly quit before I ever got to touch the ball!! (Note: This dude 
    sounds like the biggest loser so far!!!) 
    
    5. 'KingOfGames' left after the 3rd quarter cause I was up 35-0. 
    
    6. 'uppercut' also left in the 4th cause I was up. 
    
    7. notredame- quit when I ran back a fumble for a TD to lead 10-0 
    
    8. poopoo- Went up by 5 with 1:48 left and he quit.

    Bears (he had the Rams).

    ********
    
    Send In Your Questions.
    
    Q: Can You Use Created Teams In Franchise Or Season Modes?
    A: I have tried but to no avail. I really wish you could. And If Anybody 
    knows e-mail it to me.
    
    Q: I had was about their juke move. NFL2K didn't had one, did they do a 
    good job with this addition, or does it look like a half hearted 
    attempt.
    A: I personally like it but it may be too powerful somewhat like last 
    years Stiff Arm.
    
    Q: When playing a network game and vmu play calling is off, can your 
    opponent see what play you are picking on the screen?
    A: No they can't
    
    Q: Every time I try to download rosters it comes back and says unable to 
    apply patch file. Do you have any tips for me, or have you encountered 
    this problem at all? I'd really appreciate your help on this. I want to  
    download those rosters. I think that is the coolest feature game has to  
    offer this year.
    A: I don't believe Sega has put an updated Roster up yet.
    
    
    
    
    *************
    *8. Glitches*
    *************
    
    Send In Your Glitches.
    
    Sound Glitch- Sometimes In A Blowout The Announcers will act as if it is 
    a really close game.
    
    Playcalling Glitch- First go to the options screen and turn 'VMU 
    playcalling ON'. Then in the section that says type of playcalling turn 
    the option to 'Type of play' and NOT formation. Then start a game in 
    exhibition mode and pick any two teams while playing one person as the 
    one team and another person as the other. The person that get to be on 
    defense 1st needs to use the L and R buttons to scroll through your 
    defensive plays on the VMU screen. If you use the L key it will make the 
    entire game lock up!!! I have tried this on separate Dreamcast systems 
    with separate copies of the game.
    
    Sound Glitch - When you tackle the punter the game announcers act as 
    if the kick was made and the ball was returned to the point of the sack. 
    You're still given a sack in your statistics. 
    
    Bucs Glitch- I am playing a franchise season with the Bucs. I went 16-1 
    in my regular season giving me the best record on the year. So that 
    would mean I should have homefield advantage throughout the playoffs and 
    superbowl right?? but when I plowed through the other teams and made it 
    to the superbowl. My first place Bucs was the VISITING team in the 
    superbowl. That shit pissed me off. I was supposed to be the home team 
    especially being that the superbowl is in Tampa. Has this happened to U 
    ?
    Update: The game goes by record not whether it's in Tampa or not.

    Send In your codes.
    
    Speed Up Your Modem- This Is Really A Code But It Will Speed Your Modem 
    Up. In The Version 2.0 Browser Go To The Modem Int. Area And Replace 
    AT&F With ATs28=56.
    
    Add A Created Team In Season- Go to Season and select "Custom" from the 
    season options. Then u click on a team that u "DO NOT" want to play 
    against (I usually do the worst team). Then it will take u to another 
    screen and if u scroll all the way to the bottom u will see your team. 
    Then just go to "Team Select" and click on your team. It's that easy
    
    
    Created Player In Franchise- 1st. go to customize screen then create a 
    player.2nd. then go to Fantasy ,4 teams, hit A button (note you will 
    lose season or franchise you are in so I recommend you use other vmu if 
    afraid.)hit on 4 teams, press start on select teams, press start on 
    setup names, then when ask for yes or no hit yes, then CPU starts to 
    draft hit start ,on CPU complete Draft? hit yes, then go to Quit, Now go 
    to Franchise mode hit YES, Setup your franchise then (I leave fantasy 
    draft off) hit start , pick management, go to signings your created 
    player will be there!! cut a player on your team pick him up!!!! I have 
    only tried ONE created player so far it does work. go to depth chart and 
    start him. It is simple really I just going really in depth here for you
