I am no big Madden fan and pretty much stopped playing it from 1999 til 2005 for 2"thousand" obvious reasons but I do remember 1st, 2nd and 3rd string mass substitutions being in the game.

If they add that back, I could easily bench ALL my starters without having to go through the entire depth chart. Also, bring back pregame formation subs too, so I can stop having some starters end up on special teams whenever I do rest them. With the new 75 player roster limit, this might not be as big of an issue as it has been but we still need a way to assign specific special team players.
75 man rosters is just for preseason until you make your roster cuts

Good point, my bad.

In that case, we definitely need pregame formation subs back in.

Also, hopefully, we will have practice quads for retaining more than just 53 players.

Re: Resting Players

This would make players and the game so much versatile. Just think one of your better players that have very little playoff experience might not perform as well, or loses confidence and you have to replace him, in turn finding a nice back-up or something along those lines. This makes player roles and substitutions great.

Yup.

I track my franchises online, so just as they do in real life, when I'm up (or even down) by a ton late, or already clinched a spot (or am just playing out the string), I play my backups. It's fun because you get to see your lesser talented players get starter snaps. Who knows, sometimes you just have a better chemistry with certain players, despite a lower rating.

Trent Edwards and Mike Vick couldn't win me a damn game in my Bills franchise (on M10). Inserted Ryan Fitzpatrick, and I went 5-3 the second half of the season after starting 1-7.

Yes. NBA 2K11 has this. If Kobe plays heavy minutes in back to back games....there's a good chance he may not shoot well in the following game. And if you look at his fatigue it'll say "exhausted."

You're right....that would be pretty cool in football. I know they have it for individual games (like players running slower late in games). But I'd like to see a team be a little sluggish coming off a Monday Night game on short rest.

I guess that's the difference between sports though... I'd say most football players play every snap of their side of the ball withnthe exceptionsnto that being the minoritr, vs basketball players who need the rest due to the frequency of games. Apples to oranges comparison IMO. Football players are rested to prevent injury, rather than rest.
