    I'm gonna be so pissed if defense plays gun monster like it's a regular formation.

    I've been watching less and less football every year so I don't recall seeing the monster formation in a game. What exactly is the benefit? It seems like you can rush 4 and get someone in your QBs face immediately unless I'm missing something

    Watch Cincinnati. They run options and quick screens off it. It's designed to spread the box a bit

    if you rush 4, your RB would be wide open.. its simple math really

    Exactly It's a numbers game.
    If a defense decides to attack the RB and QB, then they better have good tacklers and block shedders on the outside. And vice versa.
    Think of the wildcat offense back in the day. It was a gimmicky offense, that had success against defenses that didn't know how to properly align. Now that teams know how to align, we see it less.

    Gonna have a lot of fun with Gun Monster.. I wonder how the defense will line up
    That definitely looks like something the Patriots would run. That's the first thing I thought of seeing it

    What does the "11" & "12" personel mean? I cant be 1 WR, 1 TE, 1HB, etc...

    It a naming convention for personnel groupings. The formula is always HB+TE+WR and it always equals 5 because that the most eligible receivers allowed. You use the numerals of the HB and TE as the personnel groupings name and HB(this includes FB when applicable) are always listed first. So a formation with 2 backs and 2 TE would be 22 personnel. 1 back and 0 TE is 10 personnel, etc....
    Some popular personnel examples:
    0 HB 0 TE 5 WR= 00 personnel
    0 HB 1 TE 4 WR= 01 personnel
    1 HB 0 TE 4 WR= 10 personnel
    1 HB 1 TE 3 WR= 11 personnel
    1 HB 2 TE 2 WR= 12 personnel
    1 HB 3 TE 1 WR= 13 personnel
    2 HB 0 TE 3 WR= 20 personnel
    2 HB 1 TE 2 WR= 21 personnel
    2 HB 2 TE 1 WR= 22 personnel
    2 HB 3 TE 0 WR= 23 personnel
    Aren't Gun Monster and Gun Monster Stack illegal formations? You have to have 5 linemen on the line. They added that rule after the Patriots used a 6th receiver as a decoy.

    Pretty sure I can recall seeing the gun monster used last year. I think it was the browns. Maybe Cincinnati.. not 100% sure who it was.

    Not illegal. They just made it so you had to declare with more time before the snap. Kind of limited the surprise factor.

    im assuming 23 personnel is called when there are 8 oline (subs for TE)?

    I think in this situation the team will have some special name for it. I believe back in the day when the niners would go super heavy it was called the "Angus" package. I heard other stuff like "loaded" and such attached to it as well.

    Also it still has 7 on the LOS and all OL are covered up so it's legal.
    Nice to see some new formations, I wonder which playbooks are gonna be nice in Madden 18. Had a lot of fun with Baltimore, Carolina, New England, and New Orleans in M17.
