Does the red mean that they shift over pre-play? If so, that's pretty awesome.

yea i wonder the same thing. that will be cool if there are pre play shifts for defense

Oh my, thats nasty, and im positive that is not a pre plsy shift for the red assignment, more of a rolling coverage to fill the vacant assignment after the snap, a presnap shift would give it away and it would get eaten alive lol

So it looks like 4 of the eligible receivers will be covered, leaving one uncovered. That's usually a good strategy in real life because most RBs usually have a check release read, so if the D brings 6, the RB will be forced to block leaving 4 on 4 in the secondary with a Safety deep.

Now in NCAA and Madden, if the play call is for all 5 eligible receivers to go out in to a pattern, I could see this play getting killed by a quick pass to whichever receiver is left uncovered.

If there is Custom Playbooks, I will def put this play in.
Hopefully OLine/Dline Interaction is fixed.

if the rolling safety manned up on the outside or squatted? at least one reciever will be open on this play, maybe two, on the game. like you said, it all works in real life b/c the running backs will have a check read, and the blitzing backers will peel off & man up if the backs don't stay in. but that is too much high level thinking for ea's engine, so what we'll get is an exploitable play, especially if the safety rolling over is squatted.

That 245 Nickel play had people moving pre-snap without the red path. So I can only hope defensive backfield play has been addressed.

that's a good point. wonder if they changed some of the read/release routes for the backs then.

the red is that free safety, taking over the responsibility of the blitzing corner. its just man coverage

I've got a slight glimmer of hope that they tweak the specific Defensive playbooks to each team instead of base defense. Especially with the Nebraska/LSU reference for this type of blitz.

Nebraska rarely blitzed, but when they did it was creative. A team like Iowa almost refuses to play Nickel/Dime coverage, NEVER blitz, and just drop back into a Cover 2 or Cover 3 Zone in passing situations.

I really hope the game starts to reflect these tendencies both in playbooks and CPU playcall style.

Ehh... I feel like there are some plays in NCAA 11 very similar to this one. Still, I know I'll use it, seeing as this is the type of D I use.

It seems like a lot of the exotic blitzes they are showing are out of the nickle and dime sets, hopefully some of those blitz concepts are available in the base 4-3 and 3-4 formations as well
