Creating a more intuitive system for assigning players to special positions will allow more people to enjoy the additional strategy element. Should also open up the way people think about the draft in CFM, moving forward.

Belichick is amazing as a coach. He is essentially looking at the game of football like a mathematician would, and solving all the problems. He plays odds and matchups, the numbers, like no other coach I have seen.

I hope to see Madden assist others in seeing the game of Madden in a more in depth manner. Making the system easier for the regular video game player will help to open the game strategy for all..

Combining this info with the possiblity that M19 has additional ratings makes me hopeful that the main menu rosters/ depth charts may have seen a long overdue major overhaul

Or maybe I'm adding 2 and 2 to make five?

Re: Madden NFL 19 Adds Specialist Positions Including Rush Ends, Slot Receivers

Not a back-of-box feature, but I like this a lot as a "Quality of Life" kind of change. I'm hoping that this will also make it a bit easier to stimulate RB rotation based on down/distance/formation versus having to constantly jack-up fatigue/autosub settings....this now gives you your primary back, 3rd down "scat back" and a short yardage guy.



I AM a bit curious about the "sub linebacker" and in what instances he would be subbed-in....is this intended to be a pass rush specialist or a coverage LB (or will that be a bit different depending on whether you run a 34 vs 43 scheme).

Agree with Josh, this is a great new and improved "Quality of Life" adding position specialist.

I'd bet almost anything it's a coverage LB in nickel/dime sets. Presumably if you run 3-4 and thus have pass-rushing OLBs, that wouldn't need to change on passing downs. But you might want to change who lines up at DE/DT.
