Before I had XBlive I would take my tower to friends house and sign on W/ his gamertag and load up a patch if I wanted.

When you bring it home, and sign on w/out XB live under your own gamer tag the patch is still there cuz its loaded to your HD system cache.

FYI

I guess thats why they are so lax on getting the patches out...barely 1/3rd of the console install base can get it anyway
I suppose knowing percentage of the total madden owners have xbl/ps3 online access would help determine that

Most madden players I know do not play online or have an option to do so. I'd like to think that Patch 2 is taking so long because they want to get it right.

I think Ultimate Team is a separate update and that it's not a part of the patch.

I sure hope it's not, because the guy in the interview said that Ultimate Team won't be released until late January at the earliest.

It's a separate free update and based on Ian' Twitter, it's a separate team than the Madden Development Team.

"In this second title update we focused on some of the more debated topics from our loyal and passionate fan base. We appreciate all the feedback so please keep it coming! In this update you will be happy to hear that we have tuned our Flat Zone assignments to cover the flats more effectively. Defenders will not chuck a WR if another receiver is running a route towards their zone. This will help the defender be in better position to react to a quickly throw flat route and allow him to make a play. The flat zone defenders will also play the ball better if a pass is thrown behind the line of scrimmage as well as taking better pursuit angles after the catch to prevent the ball carrier from being able to get around the corner. This has been one of the top complaints that we have heard about and realized it was definitely something that we needed to address."
Quite frankly, I think everything works fine... Where I think the problem lies for nearly every single guy that I've played online with the flats, screen, and slants, is that none of these guys knows how to play proper defence. I've now played at least 15 guys who do nothing but monster blitz every single play... So to counter I run slants and screens. That's just basic football... If the blitzing were less effective, people would result to playing proper D and other players would likely end up playing other plays then the screen and slant routes... Vikings, Cowboys, Giants, Ravens + Mixed D at the selection screen = blitz crazy guys who don't know D other then the blitz, which = smart players playing the screen and slants. Guess what, if you look at the Eagles in the playoffs for the past three years, they've been beat every single time by these plays because they played stupid blitzing D almost all of the time...

I just hope that if they address the flats that they don't make it impossible for players to get away from the cheese that is monster blitz because a blitzing LB will now know to break off his blitz to cover the flats...

Everyone wants sim football. Myself for one, am overjoyed at this year's game thus far. But guess what, sim means getting beat if you only use one play against guys who know football's basic rules of play...

It sounds like you are saying they don't need to fix the flat zones?

You can also counter blitzes by throwing to the area where the blitz is coming from rather dumping to the flats.
