For instance, Say you call 4-3 Buzz Duo and you have the MLB w/ Man Lock on the HB. They send the HB in motion on their I-Form Normal, making I-Form Twins. So the MLB will go and switch positions with the OLB and the MLB who had a hook zone, now has a hook/curl zone. The OLB who had the hook/curl now has the middle hook zone that originally was the zone occupied by the MLB. Hope I explained it well enough.

aha, so do you press L and hold it when you pick the formation or just press it and then let off of L and then pick the formation? Maybe that is my problem.

the latter..........also though you may want to go into coaching strategies and select whom you want to defend whom when you have man lock on. Like if you have a decent Safety with speed, I would then select him to be on the HB in man lock situations. That's just an example. Others would include. Having Chuck Woodson cover T.O. regardless of what side of the field he lines up on or even if he lines up in the backfield or slot. Nice addition that they added last year.
