That is the thing about this game. you should not have to go to hardcore just for the AI to stop blitzing so much. The AI should adapt to your playing style. That was the theme for this year madden. But yet the AI does not adjust to what you are calling. Instead the AI blitz like crazy. That is not reealism one. Hopefully in this new patch update Ian can squeeze that adjustment into it. But if not. This is something Ian needs to put on top of his list to correct for madden 11.
yeah this is really a killer for me...it makes 3rd and long way too easy. i think at this point we can just hope the blitzing and playcalling are adjusted in patch 2 and these are some of the things they left off the list so far.
