    -----------------
    
    Welcome to this NFl Blitz 2000 FAQ for Nintendo 64. I wrote it because
    it is by far the best football game for any console I've ever played (I've
    never played NFL2K for Dreamcast, though). It's fun, unique and original
    yet very much like the pro's. So on we go.

    What an update... I've completely re-done the offense and defense
    sections by adding play guides that should help you out quite a bit.
    I also updated the teams section by adding their ratings according to
    the game.
    
    Version 1.1 (11/23/99)
    I updated the secrets section, the credits and the copyright info. I
    accidentally put in the copyright info that the game was copyright
    Nintendo and Acclaim where it actually is Nintendo and Midway. Special
    thanks to Bypogizer for letting me know.
    
    Version 1.0 (10/22/99)
    This is the first version of the FAQ and obviously, everything has been

    5) Offense
    -----------------
    
    You are allowed 27 plays on offense; press Z if you want to see a new
    page of nine plays. Passing plays are more common but risk interceptions,
    while fumbling happens every once in awhile on a running play or QB
    sneak. Here is the offensive play guide I have written up.
    
    - The Play name is the name of the play (duh)
    - Pass/Run tells if it's a pass play, a run play, or both
    - Turnover Rate tells if the play is risky or not to run in case of
      turnovers
    - Description is my description of how the play is executed
    - Use it tells how often you should use it
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Switch Up
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Fairly Risky
    Description: It's a short pass to either the left or right wide receiver,
    depending on which way you make your quarterback roll. A catch will
    guarantee 5 yards, give or take 3, and then add on however far you can run
    with it depending on how the defense was set up.
    Use It: Yes, when you need 10-20 yards
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Hurricane
    Pass/Run: Both
    Turnover Rate: Not Very Risky
    Description: A nice little play that is great for a QB sneak if the defense
    doesn't send a lot of men to the left. If there are a lot of men to the
    left, roll right when you have it and throw it to hit a receiver about 20
    yards up for, hopefully, a completion. In addition to this, if you roll
    left and throw quick the halfback will get it and have the option to throw
    it to a receiver; quite a trick but it's not very successful.
    Use It: Yes, QB sneak it for short distance, pass when you need 15-20 yards
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Zig Zag
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Very Risky
    Description: A simple play where the tight end goes straight out about 10
    yards for a pass, or the right wide receiver goes toward the sidelines for
    5 yards, not including a run. Interceptions often occur with this play.
    Use It: Only if you're desperate to throw the ball for short yardage.
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Spider Legs
    Pass/Run: Both
    Turnover Rate: Fairly Risky
    Description: This can be used as a running play to the halfback which
    usually results in a loss of a few yards, or a short pass to the halfback
    if you make the QB roll to the right. Crossing the line of scrimmage as
    the halfback with the ball (the yellow line) will force a run; otherwise
    the halfback can toss it to a receiver though barely successful.
    Use It: Yes, when you need about 10-20 yards.
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Monkey
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Extremely Low
    Description: A great play for short yardage, whether you're five yards
    away from a first down, or on the opposing team's 5-yard line. Have your
    QB roll right and throw it quickly to hit the wide receiver for a short,
    yet well-earned 5-30 yards (depending on how the defense is, a big run
    can occur after a catch). If you're receiver is well covered or falls down,
    hold the ball and hope that you have good pass protection, then wait and
    throw it when you find an open man.
    Use It: Yes, on first downs and for short yardage.
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Slip Slide
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Very Risky
    Description: A nice play that sends a pass to either receiver depending
    on which way your QB rolls, or a pass over the middle if you stay still.
    It works for anywhere from 10-50 yards depending on how long your QB
    waits to throw it. However, interceptions are frequent with this play so
    don't over-use it.
    Use It: Yes, when you need big yardage, but only use it a few times per 
    game.
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: QB Post
    Pass/Run: Both
    Turnover Rate: Fairly Risky
    Description: A crappy little play; sometimes a hole opens up the middle for
    the QB to sneak for 10 yards, but it doesn't happen that often. Otherwise
    you can roll either way and hope for a wide out to be open.
    Use It: Never
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Da Bomb
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Very Low
    Description: The best pass play in the game, right here! Snap the ball and
    have your quarterback continuously back-peddle until you're about to be
    sacked, and then throw. There should be a man cutting across the field about
    50 yards up, or a man on the right running straight about 40 yards up.
    It works a lot, and barely ever results in an interception.
    Use It: Yes, definetely
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Hail Mary
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Very Risky
    Description: Basically it's where 4 wide receivers go out and your QB tosses
    it up for any of them. In real life, it's used when desperate, but in this
    game, it should never be used. "Da Bomb," is a much more reliable pass
    play.
    Use It: Never
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Turmoil
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Very Low
    Description: A nice short yardage play; your halfback will roll to the
    right and then continue up the right sideline. Throw it to him whenever
    you desire.
    Use It: Yes, for 5-15 yards.
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Dawg Hook
    Pass/Run: Both
    Turnover Rate: Very Risky
    Description: This would be a great play if it weren't for the turnovers;
    your running back goes behind you for a pitch off. Then he'll throw
    it to whoever is open or he can run it if there's a hole.
    Use It: Yes, but use it sparingly
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: UTB Deep
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Somewhat Risky
    Description: This is a great passing play; very reliable. The tight end
    and the wide receiver from the right cross each other and then the QB
    hits which ever one is open with a pass.
    Use It: Yes
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: X Slant
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Very Risky
    Description: This will make the halfback run behind the QB for a pass. After
    that, it is the halfback's option to run it or pass it for a trick play.
    This play seldom works and often results in a turnover.
    Use It: Never
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Blizzard
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Not Risky
    Description: The wide receiver go out pretty shallow; anywhere between
    5 and 25 yards, and sometimes get open for a short pass and a short gain
    because the defense is tight.
    Use It: Sometimes
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Criss X
    Pass/Run: Both
    Turnover Rate: Fairly Risky
    Description: This is yet another trick play; nothing real special. The
    running back will be available for a pass and then he can run it or throw
    it to an open receiver. Interceptions aren't that great of a threat but
    incomplete passes usually occur.
    Use It: Once or twice a game
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Super Fly
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Risky
    Description: This is a nice little play for short yardage when you're
    desperate for that 1-5 yards on fourth down... The wide out goes to the
    right and is open for a pass 95% of the time, but he'll be nailed by the
    cornerback or safety before he makes it 10 yards. The longer your Qb holds
    the ball, the deeper your men will go for passes, but the chances of
    catching one on this play for a good gain are slim.
    Use It: Only for short yardage
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Reverse Zip
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Very Risky
    Description: This is a good play despite the turnover chances. Your wide
    receiver lined up at the right totally comes across to the other side of
    the field for a pass. After that, it's the QB's option to hit that man or
    the tight end who is in the middle of the field which is where the
    interceptions usually come from.
    Use It: Yes, but use it sparingly
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Leg Break
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Not Very Risky
    Description: This is a great play where the right wide receiver and tight
    end both go to the same spot for a pass - and there's only one man covering
    that area! A catch and a first down (gain from anywhere from 15-50 yards)
    is often the result, and a good one at that.
    Use It: Definetely
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Dog Day
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Risky
    Description: The QB is in the shtogun position which buys some time for
    the wide outs to get open, and a short pass to either side is usually the
    result. One of the receivers is always double-teamed on this play, so
    try to hit the other one that's being played man-to-man. The result is
    usually 5-10 yards and sometimes an interception (if you throw it into
    double coverage).
    Use It: No
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Split Ends
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Not Risky At All
    Description: The tight end will be lined up at the right and he'll come
    across to the other side when the ball is snapped. The QB will be in the
    shotgun position giving the tight end plenty of time. When you see him open
    and heading up the sideline, go ahead and fire that ball to him... This is
    a very effective play if the tight end doesn't fumble.
    Use It: Definetely
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Juke Box
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Not Risky
    Description: In other terms, this is a screen play to the tight end. He'll
    stand on the left side and wait for the pass to come. If you get it off
    quickly enough, he'll be able to run with it for some good yardage, but
    if you wait, he'll be creamed by opponents for a loss of yardage.
    Use It: Yes
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Zone Bane
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Very Risky
    Description: The wide outs go; if you're going to be sacked, go ahead and
    get rid of it to them for either 10-20 yards or an interception. But if
    you have time, roll to the right and throw it to the cutting tight end.
    Hit that turbo button as soon as he gets it for some great yardage.
    Use It: Yes, if you're winning the game (otherwise it's too risky)
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: What The...
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Risky
    Description: A play in which the two receivers, who are lined up at the
    same place, go out to the same spot and cross. It's ok to run when you
    are leading, but too risky to run when you are losing. It usually gets
    you anywhere from 5-35 yards depending on how long your Qb waits to throw
    it.
    Use It: Yes, if you're winning the game (otherwise it's too risky)
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Clubbin
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Not Very Risky
    Description: The running back will run in front of you, then to the right,
    and up the right sideline for a pass. Depending on how well your coverage
    is, you'll either be sacked or you'll end up with a 5-50 yard gain. Good
    to run if you're not near your own endzone in fear of a safety.
    Use It: Yes, but use it sparingly.
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Shot Taker
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Risky
    Description: A great tight end play to run that often results on in a
    great amount of yardage. Your two receivers (one on the right side and
    one on the left side) both go fairly deep and draw the safeties and
    cornerbacks to them, while the tight end goes to the side line with nobody
    near him to make a good run.
    Use It: Yes, if you're losing
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Can Opener
    Pass/Run: Both
    Turnover Rate: Risky
    Description: A good trick play which consists of the right end cutting
    right for a pass, then the option to run with it or throw it to the
    wide out if the line of scrimmage hasn't already been passed. Running it
    is usually the best bet.
    Use It: Yes
    
    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
    
    Play Name: Pin Wheel
    Pass/Run: Pass
    Turnover Rate: Risky
    Description: One of the games great passing plays - all three wide
    receivers and the tight end cross each other about ten yards out and one
    of them is bound to be open. But be careful with this play; over-using it
    results in turnovers.
    Use It: Yes, but use it sparingly

    6) Defense
    -----------------
    
    You are allowed nine plays on defense, not including special teams. Here
    are the names of them, how good they are (rated out of five *'s) and how
    you should use them.
    
    Play Name: Safe Cover
    Rating: ****
    Description: This is goos to use when defending a pass play if you
    anticipate a deep one. Use the safety for this play because you'll get
    the most action.
    
    Play Name: Med. Zone
    Rating: ****
    Description: This is a good play to use if you anticipate a medium
    range pass such as 15-30 yards. Use the safety or cornerback to make the
    stops.
    
    Play Name: Suicide
    Rating: ***
    Description: This is only a good play if you anticipate a pass and need
    a sack. Be one of the lineman or a linebacker so that you can dive and
    get a sack.
    
    Play Name: 1 Man Blitz
    Rating: *****
    Description: This is the best defensive play in the game because your
    coverage going deep or medium is protected by the cornerbacks and safeties,
    and the blitz often results in a sack. Be the left linebacker and line
    up between the two linemen on the left to get in quick.
    
    Play Name: Zone Blitz
    Rating: **
    Description: Not a very good play because your safeties and cornerbacks
    don't commit to the receivers in case of a pass play.
    
    Play Name: G Stance
    Rating: ***
    Description: A good play to choose if you anticipate a running play;
    be one of the linemen or linebackers and line up in the slot to either
    the left or right (whichever way the run is coming). If it is a trick
    play, however, you will get burned.
    
    Play Name: Cover 3
    Rating: ****
    Description: Another good play if you anticipate a deep pass because the
    safety and two linebackers commit to going deep and taking out an open
    man if he's going to catch it.
    
    Play Name: Dog Cover
    Rating: *
    Description: I'm not sure what to say here besides this play never works
    for me... Most of the time you get burned no matter what type of play it
    is.
    
    Play Name: Cover Deep
    Rating: ****
    Description: This is the third great play that does it against the deep
    pass; pretty much all of your defense besides the linemen cover somebody
    who is going out deep for a pass.
    
    Play Name: Goal Line
    Rating: ***
    Description: Only use this if you anticipate a QB sneak or a short run;
    all of your linemen and both linebackers will bunch together to prevent
    a short yardage carry.
    
    Play Name: 2 Man Blitz
    Rating: ****
    Description: The same thing as the 1 Man Blitz only both linebackers
    blitz at once. I don't like it as much because it opens up another
    receiver and the QB usually hits him before you get to him and take him
    down for a sack.
    
    Here are three defensive tips I've come up of on my own:
    
    - If you're going for a sack, be one of the linebackers and set him up
    anywhere between two linemen. He will usually break through and go in
    for a sack.
    - Press the B button to dive and tackle... This is especially helpful
    when you're going in for a sack or trying to catch a guy headed toward
    the endzone for a touchdown.
    - Pass Interference doesn't exist in this game, so if there's an opponent
    about to catch a ball, press the B Button to dive and take him out causing
    an incomplete pass.
    
    -----------------
    7) Special Teams
    -----------------
    
    Offensively
    -----------
    
    Punting
    Pick the punt, then wait until the meter reaches the top to snap the ball.
    Try to aim the punt long but out of bounds.
    
    Fake Punting (Pass)
    Only try this if you're 20 yards or less from a first, and you're past
    your own 40 yard line. Hopefully a receiver on the right will open up
    and you'll hit him for a first.
    
    Fake Punting (Run)
    Only do this if you need 5 or more yards and you're past your own 40
    yard line. The punter should get it and have the option to run it to the
    right, left, or right up the gut; whatever looks open.
    
    Field Goals
    Pick it as your play, then wait until the ball is right in the middle of
    the accuracy meter to snap it. Your timing must be good; takes a while
    to get used to but easy after that.
    
    Fake Field Goals (Pass)
    Same thing as the fake punt; look for an open man running a route down
    the right sideline.
    
    Fake Field Goals (Run)
    Same thing as fake punt run, only the place kicker will get the ball
    and be forced to run it. This is very risky and barely ever works.
    
    Defense
    -------
    
    Returning Kicks
    Very basic, get the ball (you'll catch it automatically) hit the turbo,
    and run!
    
    Blocking Punts
    Pick the block punt, make your guys rush in while holding nothing back,
    and dive if you get close to the punter.
