What are your observations?

It might. In my efforts to actually get a running game, I put my run D sliders at 0/0/5 and suddenly the AI was trying to pound the ball and stay with it. It might have an impact because it's trying to "make it harder" on you by doing what your sliders are hardest at, but the result in game seems like it could be more running. Plus the lower sliders give successes which probably help the AI stay with it.

Also, had a game last night where I stuffed Jamal Lewis, but they stayed with him all game. He had 21 carries and some of the 4th quarter ones were significant.

So it could be a possibility.

Yeah, super sim is awful. Yet another thing it should do like Head Coach 09 - super sim runs the accel. clock like during a played out game.

And, like everyone else, some stupid clock management decisions like running up the middle on their own 25 yd line, then calling time out. Running the ball when down by 14+ with less than 2 minutes left (of all the times to go to the run...), the "automatic" time out with 1:01 or so on the clock (just about every time the AI has the ball, it will call timeout around 1 min left in the game, even if my D is clearly off balance - the AI will kill it's own flow with the "auto" timeout).

In coach mode, I also went up against Lewis last night. I'm using sliders from here(Bill Harris) and Lewis was gaining 7yds/attempt and over 100 yds @half. I started using more pinch plays in the second half and more engage 8's. They stuck with the run and I started to shut it down. Finally, I pulled ahead and they had to pass the rest of the game.

They were down by two with less than a minute left and all their timeouts. They started running the ball and calling timeouts. I stopped them on 4th down and they turned the ball over with 18 seconds left. Weird. Game over.

i don't think so in terms of the number of run vs. pass plays called. the sliders should just change effectiveness of attributes. to tune the play calling, you should adjust the coaching sliders / settings. this makes a big difference in pass vs. rush and the blitzing. the only problem is you need to control all the teams and this turns off CPU trades in a franchise.

Has Coach Mode been fixed so that you cannot control any player after the snap (kickers, defenders, etc)--a true coach mode, not "control anyone but the QB mode"??

No, this was never mentioned in the information on ea's website regarding the 2nd patch, I hope that they will include a true coach mode in madden 11.
