Over the Shoulder Catches(At the worst times)

These over the shoulder catch animations are happening way too often. I play as the Pats and throw to Welker on swing routes a lot and instead of facing Brady in the flat to catch the ball, he does this obsurd over the shoulder catch animation that is totally unrealistic. Also on fades receivers never turn and face the qb when the ball is in the air but instead try to jump and catch it over their shoulder. People flamed the rocket catch but it was a far more realistic animation for receivers like Moss and Fitzgerald who rely on jumping a lot. Just curious if anyone has see this problem as well.

The dreaded spin catch is to madden 09 as the over used over the shoulder catch is to madden 10. Typical of EA, they take out a stupid animation which is great, but then they flubb it all up by replacing it with another stupid animation.

I dunno, I kinda like them. The spin catch was the worst,(esp. the jump and spin catch!!!!) but this one at least LOOKS realistic. I may not see it on every pass play on Sundays, but I do see them.

Guess I'm in the minority on this one......

This dumb animation looks nice sometimes but usually, it results in a pick because it means they didn't fight for the ball, and the DB just jumps up and snags it.

That's the problem I have with the animation. It happens all the damn time. If it only happened when the receiver was catching a pass that was thrown over his shoulder, it'd be fine. For some reason, Ian thought it was a brillant idea to trigger that animation during bullet passes down the middle of the field and on passes to the RB out of the flats.

I don't think it's the fact that it happens to much I think it's that that's the ONLY animation they have (or is triggered) for an over the shoulder catch. they need more variety, the more over the shoulder catch animations they have the more realistic they could make it, because that ONE catch animation looks good in certain situations and horrible in others.

ea should make the catch animation based on the player position like in a fade route the over the shoulder catch should not be used in that situation and the player should go up for the catch animation so the catch animation should be based on the passing play and the positioning of the player.

What happened to the catch animations they had on the PS2? They were not perfect but better and less repetitive than the catches they have now.
