Lack/Absence of holding penalties really is a huge issue

It really causes issues for those who want a sim game. Penalties are a huge drive killer in real life. Getting set back to 1st and 20 totally changes everything. Unless there is a sack, which there should only be a couple a game, there really are no 2nd or 3rd and long plays. This makes its easier for the AI and Human to just dink and dunk 4 to 6 yards a pop and keep the chains moving. If the AI and Human had to attempt longer throws to convert, the pass % would be more in line with where they should be. Zone coverages would be more useful, etc.

Please give us holding penalties and for those who don't want penalties just give them an option to turn them off.

If you want more just move the holding slider up... that should help.

Add Pass interference to the list as well, esp as we see this become more and more part of real games. QBs throw the ball down the field just for the flag now. Make the awareness attribute lead to more or less PI, or you could make it a trait(because there are some good CBs that are still susceptible to PI in real life)

Huh? Have you played this game? Have you attempted to 'move the holding slider up'?

Sliders are broken and don't work. Do you even have this game?

With the setting 95-99, I have been averaging about 1.5 holding penalites per game. Not where it should be, but not disasterous.'

Also, turning FS up (60-75) can simulate near the correct amount of pre-snap offensive penalties.
