Re: QB Vision Cone alternatives

The real idea behind the cone was to give QB Awareness meaning when controlled by the user. That's why I hated that you couldn't turn it on for yourself and off for the computer... if you used it, a bad CPU quarterback was doubly crippled.

Before the vision cone, you didn't care what a QB's AWR was when you signed/drafted him, as long as he had a big arm, it was cool. The vision cone made a huge difference in franchise modes as you tried to build up a poor QB over time.

As for an alternative, perhaps simply have AWR affect the reaction time and mistakes by the defense. For example, if a defense is in 3-deep with the offense sending 2 receivers down the field, a QB with low AWR (or the APF equivalent... since it doesn't have ratings, I dont know what you'd call it) will cause the deep-middle safety to almost immediately rush toward the intended receiver, effectively double-covering him. A medium AWR QB will cause the deep middle safety to hesitate, and a high AWR QB will actually induce the safety to run toward the opposite side of the field, leaving the intended receiver one-on-one with one man to beat to the endzone.

Not set in stone-every play this is how it goes, of course, but that's the "norm" for each level.

Positive--- employs the mental attributes of a QB even when controlled by human.
Negative--- the effect, unlike vision cone, is completely out of the user's hands.

Also a vibration sensor to let you know which reciever your targeting. As you move the joystick depending on which reciever your aiming for the body and the feet of the quarter back will move also. So instead of you moving the cone back and fourth across the field the quarter back will move.
Madden did this with the vision cone. As you moved it from one receiver to another, the QB would bounce step to be facing that receiver.
