Till the last drive literally, did I start getting to him. Sacking him 3 times in a row on the last drive.

I was thinking they could run more effectively b/c they wouldn't be bracing.
I hope I can get more than one season in but also patiently waiting for any more Sim updates/fixes.
Also, keep an eye on the QB fumbling, I'm wondering if brace for all hits allows less fumbles, especially on those hits in the pocket.

Well, through 5 games using the player edits, I think I have seen only 2 fumbles; so, at least on 1.08, Brace=Never has no appreciable effect on fumbling...which would not be entirely unthinkable, if we assume 1.08 messed up the cover ball trait in general.

Is there a down side to changing the traits before every game and not changing them back? Also, is there a way to disable title update for Madden without disconnecting my PS4 from the internet?

It was a blast. His running perhaps did him in, at the end lol. Sacked him 3 times in a row i believe. Thank God! Now 2 runs accounted for almost half that total. But I actually started switching defenders. Which I don't normally do. I was that frustrated. But my season was on the line lol

I also upped his carry 20 points to 88. Sense pressure-ideal. Force passes average/balanced. Cover ball-Never. Throw ball away-No.

I do change the cpu back to their original place. I keep mine in place

I think the only way is to disconnect from WiFi.

With the edits, I actually think it is too. Defensive coverage seems tighter as well. The only other thing I do is raise every QB to Ideal at sensing pressure. Because it seems they took a slight step backwards at holding the ball too much. Set it to ideal, problem solved.

The other thing, the cpu is running lots of draws on 3rd and long. 7 yds and over. BUT the thing is, they get the first half the time. So it is an improvement over verts lol.

Overall the game is, atm, playing pretty good.

You can go into the PS4 settings and disable automatic downloads for updates (I forgot the exact label of the setting). By doing this, the system won't down load an update on its own while remaining connected to the internet. However, you have to be careful because when you start Madden, then it will automatically start to download the title update. You just have to remember to quickly go in and pause the download and cancel/delete it each time it starts. You also have to watch because usually the system will try to start the download a few times as various network features of the game try to access the network.

I have been doing this successfully for a long time, and am happily running on version 1.07 and getting great gameplay. I refuse to download any patches without seeing feedback on here first, and it saved the game for me.
