Add stats to Bio
Every time you simulate a season, if your team makes it to the playoffs it raises the stats on your EA Bio. You only have to save the Bio, and not the season.
Cheerleader and Pump Up Crowd Cards
Successfully complete the "Game Situation" challenges in mini-camp mode. The Cheerleader or Pump Up Crowd Cards for the team used will be unlocked.
Determine if defense is playing man to man coverage
Send a player in motion. If a defensive player follows him, then the corners are playing man to man coverage. Remember that the safeties may have zone and a LB could cover a WR (should be an easy completion).

Easier Mini Camp
If you are having trouble with some of the mini camps then you just have to edit the players stats. Look at the guy you are doing the drill with and the guys you are doing it against. Then write down there stats. Now make the guy you use really good and the guys your against really bad. You may have to take the stats for the backups down too because i think they will use them if they end up better then the guys you just edited. After you are done just replace the players stats back to normal.
Easy blocked punts
Chose "Punt Return Middle", then "Audible" to block a punt about 95% of the time. Also, take your RE and press Left(4). Rush the punter and you should slip past the line.
Easy first down or more
When you create a playbook, make a formation with the quarterback one step back from the center, and the halfback in the same location as the quarterback, only behind the left tackle. Make a custom route for him. Have him run straight towards the QB, then streak as soon as he reaches the outside of the offensive line. Have the fullback out as a receiver going for a 25 yard post. Have the left side receiver go for a 25 yard streak, and make a custom for the right receiver (next to the fullback). Have him go straight for 5 yards, have a two second delay, then post left. About the time he starts his post, the fullback should be starting his, and the defense re-adjusts to cover both men, leaving just enough time to get the ball to your open halfback. This works about 90 percent of the time. You must be quick to avoid getting sacked.
Easy interceptions
While in defense, choose the play Nickel-Normal, go to cover 2. Now that you chose the play move your line in, your LB to the left, and your coverage in.

Note: This only work about 85% of the time in rookie mode, sometimes in pro, if you are lucky on all-pro, and almost never in all-Madden settings.
Easy points and tokens on Two Minute Drill
To get easy points on two minute drill, go for running plays. Make sure you score a touchdown or you will not get enough points. By the end of the drill, you will be given bonus points and get at least 355 tokens for one drill. Note: Go for four drills to get a lot of tokens, but make sure you play against a weak defense like the Claymores.
Easy punt return touchdowns
Chose "Block Punt" then when they come out, audible to a middle punt return. This will work about 85% of the time.
Easy Sacks
This way is very easy and it will never really backfire on you. You have your defensive line. Take a guy from one side. I usually take the Right End and move him over outside of the Left End. It works either way if you wanna move the Left End. Anyway now if there is no Tight End you can just get right in there and disrupt or sack the QB. Even if there is a Tight End on that side he is way easier to plow over than the lineman that you line up against at the start. The only way this will backfire is if they run the ball to the side that you just left open. Then there is one less guy to make a tackle and the CPU can get more yards or even a touchdown but if you have good DB's and LB's you should be fine.
Easy sacks
If you have Bill Callahan's defensive playbook, go to Nickle defense and scroll down until you find Middle Blitz. Select that play then shift both your line and your LBs inside. You should get a sack about 85% of the time. Also on defense, get your right sided DT to the gap between the center and the guard. Hold Analog-stick Down and when the ball is snapped, your man should go through the line for a sack. This works about 50% of the time.
Easy tokens
Go to "Rosters" and select the Green Bay Packers' Wide Receivers. Make Donald Driver 6'8'' or taller in his information. Next, get out and go play the two minute drill with the Packers as your team and the Amsterdam Admirals as the defense (European Team). Then, go to Shotgun formation and press Left until you get to Shotgun 4WR and find Hail Mary. Keep throwing touchdowns to Donald Driver. Just throw bombs; because of his height he should easily catch it. After your done with the two minute drill, go to your Madden Cards and save your profile. Next, buy a pack of cards. Usually when you have about 250 cards out of 285 cards, you will get a lot of repeats. You may have 400 points and get nothing. This is why you should save the game before you buy the cards, so that you get a second chance at getting a card that you do not already have and do not waste your points on cards you already have.
Extra money
Play in owner mode and if you have the Super Bowl in the previous year, next year take all the tickets, concessions, and merchandise up as far as they can. You will get about $20 million a game.
Get Madden Cards
Get a gold rank in any event on the All Pro, Pro, and Rookie levels in mini-camp mode.
Get under the salary cap
Go to "Rosters", then go down to "Resign Players". Sign your players to seven year contracts. This will give more money most of the time. This is a good way to get more money before the off season to get those highly paid players.
Players become coaches
Great players that retire in franchise mode can return to be coaches. Wait a couple of years after your favorite star retires, and he will show up in the coaching free agent list to be signed as an assistant or head coach.
Quick blitz
If you want to blitz fast, go to the setting menu, then choose "Penalty", and turn off "Offsides". You can now run before the play.

Change Song
To change a song at the main menu (or anywhere except in gameplay or in a match) Press the Y button. Hold down the Y button. The help screen will pop-up. Then keep the Y button held down and press the L or R button. R goes to the next track. L goes to the previous track.
Franchise Dynasty
This is an awesome cheat that makes building a great franchise really easy. Just go to the features section on the main menu and make as many created players as desired. Leave their attributes at 50 for all and sign them to your team for 7 years. After that go back to the created players screen and adjust their attributes all the way up. Now you've got a full roster of players at 99 overall signed at rock bottom prices for 7 years! Occasionaly you'll get a hold out, but all you have to do is lower the overall attributes of that player again and re-sign him for a low sum again. Then once the 7 year contracts are up repeat that re-signing process. And thats it! Another tip is to own 2 teams, say the Bears and the Packers. Use 1 as your dynasty and the other to help that dynasty. I usually trade the "best" Bears players for high draft picks, which I trade to the Packers. It works with any team, but its best to use a team with alot of high ranked players (not the bears) or a rival team in your division. Well I hope that helped, 'cause that cheat is the only reason I play '04 more than any of the newer games since they fixed the create a player attributes in those games. Have fun!
Special Dates Easter Egg
