You're 'shifting the focus' of the blocking to center around the Mike.

So, I'm just curious whether they simplified it some, or if these tweets and tweet video, they're just quickly saying, "u ID the blitzer to pick him up." U know? Because, this will make a little difference. I believe they'll have a tutorial on it, so hopefully it explains this little variance.

That was my question also. Id the Mike means finding the center defender, not the Blitzer. When I heard others talking about it, they made it sound like they are identifying the Blitzer...?

That's why I've always wanted to be able to see who's on defense when I go to the coach cam

It appear it is about protecting around a particular blitzer. Could be useful. I hope they have QB voices calling out the number though.

Re: Madden NFL 18 FAQ Videos

I'm curious how identifying the mike will work with a 3-4. You need to identify which OLB is coming every down, so are you identifying the 4th rusher if you're facing a 3-4, as opposed to identifying a 5th rusher if you're facing a 4-3?

It's precisely the same. 7 men are accounted for by virually every protection/pattern. You just need to determine which one your line needs to be aware of; ie whoever a back can't get too and a hot route can't exploit.

Re: Madden NFL 18 FAQ Videos

Unless you're talking Odd, 3-4 fronts and 4-3 fronts are equivalent. It's just a personnel package. The fronts themselves are the same thing and handled the same way.
