EA posted a new blog doing a deep dive into the Skills Trainer Mode.
The mode, narrated by Coach Bill Courtney from the documentary Undefeated, will seek to teach real football skills and concepts to players in an environment which rewards them for completing increasingly difficult skills. This will all happen within the Football Concepts portion of the mode.
The first area you will see in Football Concepts will be how to attack coverages. The drills you'll see cover: Attacking Cover 1, Attacking Cover 2, Attacking Cover 2 Man, Attacking Cover 3, Attacking Cover 4, Attacking Cover 6, and Countering the Blitz.
You'll learn how to go through progressions and how each defense works and doesn't.
The next drills deal with passing concepts. Basically, you will learn how to throw passes in certain patterns: Curl Flat Read, Stick Read, Smash Read, Verticals Read, Slant Flat, Flood Read, Levels Pass, Drive Pass, Shallow Cross Pass, Spot Pass, Spacing Pass and Dagger Pass.
Be sure to read the entire blog to get the full details on how the Football Concepts mode will work. You can view screens of the mode here.
