Alot of the letters on offense are the routes the receivers run. Or some plays like a WR Post, that means a reciever runs a post route. That's basically a straight run for about ten yards or more, then a quick cut to the inside and the ball should be thrown so when the WR cuts to the post, the ball is in his hands. Ok that was a long run-on. LOL
But yea, most of those play names on Madden come from routes by the WR, or running backs.
HB Counter is half back counter. The running back runs a counter route once he gets the ball from the QB. I wish I had a pad and pen and you were here cause it really is simple. The defensive coverages are usually the hardest to understand. But once ya do, playing Madden is a breeze.
