Kotaku - A long-forgotten truth of NFL Blitz revealed itself to me as I looked to salt away my first victory: You don't salt away any victories in NFL Blitz. You want a time-consuming play? Unload a deep pass route, like the fondly remembered "Da Bomb."
I've become such a slave to clock management, not just in simulations of American football like Madden NFL and NCAA Football, but also Tecmo Super Bowl and even Madden NFL Arcade, EA Sports' previous attempt to serve up zany action and slapstick tackles. But Blitz, where every play is a pass (or is so designed, anyway), and the clock stops at the end of it, no matter what, reminds you that the only defense is a good offense.
