My plan would be basically 3 300+ lb DTs and him up front. So cheese or not?
I would move him to DE in nickle and dime situations where teams more often that not wil be passing and then you could still use him as a LB in running situations.

Formation subs was something that really only applied to franchise. It was in the coaching options where you'd set your depth chart and all that jazz. What it did was it let you move all of your players into pretty much any position... And before people call cheese on this kind of thing... It was more for things like having Charles Woodson playing as an inside DB on a dime play, as opposed to the outside DB. What was nice was that you could do this without having to move him around in the depth chart, so he was still the #1 guy on ALL other plays that weren't set up differently... It was great!

Yeah I remember that, one of the reasons I stuck with '08 for the PC for 2 years (and customization via football-freaks.com). I'm just saying it makes no sense the way they have it set up now. It negates role players. The LB in question is a solid every down player but there are situations where you want a guy for a certain look and you can't do it with out having to rush through buttons. And I can't connect online so I pretty much only play franchise mode.

I hear ya... Like in a goal line situation. Some teams have the option of moving a guard into the fullback position for their "BIG" packages. The problem is that just because one of your guards is perhaps next in line, doesn't mean that he's the better lead blocker, or had better hands or a bunch of other factors which might impact what you want to use him for in that situation... It's like they gave us the ability to move guys positions, which is great, but they removed the ability to slot those guys into other positions... Which sucks balls!

Re: Rookie Linebacker

turn him to DE, but have him as your second string RE. Then take your 1st String RE and make him you're back up LE.

now anytime it's an obvious passing situation, flick the R stick to the left once to bring up D-Line Sub formation and, voila, you've got your pass rushing ends...

Re: Rookie Linebacker

just makin sure you guys know you can basically do formation subs, its just in game instead of out. if i remember when you get to the formation you want you click R1 on ps3 rb on xbox. so then you can move him whereever. I have done that with chuck woodson in my pack franchise and it works great and you dont have to do any depth chart changhing.

Re: Rookie Linebacker

I really like the formation subs but the thing I really want back is the ability to set up custom packages. With a formation sub it is permanent for every time you use that formation. I like the ability to situationally move my guys around quite a bit and do it without having to have a separate formation for each package I want. With defense I usually don't do a ton of this as I play a pretty straightforward 4-3 base with well defined nickle and dime sets that can be set through formation subs but with offense I prefer having several weapons with individual talents similar to what the saints have.
