I don't like my teams progression based on me deciding who runs through drills to force progression on just certain players and force how much progression. A more realistic progression makes me feel immersed in the game (like I do in The Show and NBA2K) the other just constantly makes me feel like I'm sticking a quarter into a machine.

I'm very glad for you if you end up with what you want. I understand why you would want it and I would be upset if it were taken away from you. But I also want an option for something much more realistic.
We don't know the extent to how this plays into cfm. For all we know it could be implemented just like how the drills are in NBA 2k.

I want all those the coaching options you mentioned above as well. I'm just saying honing your skills in specific areas through concentrated drills is a more fun way to do "practice mode" in between games

The one thing we know about CFM right now is that the drills from the Skills Trainer replace the contrived practice scenarios with respect to player progression via practice. That's already been stated by the developers outright and was revealed at E3 and in the media released last week on Skills Trainer + Gauntlet.

From the GameInformer.com piece published Friday:

Skills Trainer minigames will also appear in your weekly game prep in career mode where you can assign players to drills to earn XP.

Personally I think it'll be a nightmare if they don't have at least on skills option for across the board roster progression with a drill like keep the lead from the 25 practice mode for example. If you have to complete drills for each individual player or position it'll be so time consuming especially in a league where some guys have limited time.

Cool idea. The gameplay won't represent anything they're trying to teach really well, though..

Title should say:

I don't think it's going to be so much like that as much as you have to pick and choose who to improve in a given week. I.e. either A - you get one QB drill, one RB drill, one WR drill, etc. (i.e. mini-camp in Madden 2004); or B - you get X number of player drill slots to use a week (IIRC this is how the 2K basketball games handle individual player drills).

I doubt you'll see a situation where you have to run 53 player drills a week. Could be wrong, but I'm with you that that would be very time-consuming and overdoing it.

Doesn't every player in the NFL try to improve? Don't coaches try and improve all players on the team every week?

I guess I'll just have to wait til their CFM blog comes out and see if they have a mechanism for realistic progression for all players and maybe this is just a way to boost certain players at each position through these drills. Seems to me like having that extra bonus progression through drills would end up killing progression balance with the other CPU teams. That's if Madden starts off with balanced progression between user and CPU teams. They haven't been the best at that either.
