I Can't Stress This Enough" PLEASE BRING BACK MAN LOCK ON OR OFF

The ability to not let the offense read man or zone coverage is IMPERITIVE to be able to play good defense.

As it is with Madden currently, you CANNOT EVER disguise man or zone coverage. This is because there is no man lock on/off option like there was on ps2. Having this on ps2 allowed you to make any man d look just like a zone to the offense, and any zone d like man. Turning man lock off literally froze your defense, so that they didnt move when someone tried to motion a guy to read man/zone.

People have been exploiting this all year by motioning guys out towards the sidelines and snapping the ball. Zone defense in Madden 09 NEVER EVER EVER follows a motioned WR out until its too late, and the WR is WIDE open for a quick pass.

I always thought the Align Defense defensive audible, froze the DB's.

Excuse me. This is completely off-topic, I'm new here and just need to get someone's attention. Can someone please add me as a friend or talk to me through PM's. I'm having a lot of technical trouble and don't know where to start. Thanks.

Nah, that only freezes the LBs. The CBs will always move with a motioned WR vs man, and stay on their own side of the field in zone. If someone comes out in a twin WR formation, your CBs ALWAYS line up over the twin WRs, and that immediately tells the offense theyre in man.

They need to make it so that you can either freeze the defense again so no defenders move with motion guys, and so that you can "un-freeze" the defense too, so that even guys in zone defense follow motioned WRs like its man. Thats what man lock on or off is. See what I mean?
