Deep passing game

I'm shocked that the deep ball is even more horrible than it was pre-patch on 08 which was the worst I've ever seen it then. The loft on passes in the short passing game is a nice addition but there is no deep passing game.

You can't lead a WR at all. I've tried stepping up in the pocket like in 08 but there is nothing. The DB is always able to catch up except when they don't have to catch up since the ball is under-thrown right into the DB's back.

Seriously, there is no velocity on deep passes. I'd love to see a WR get a step on the db then just lay one out. I'd even like to see it over-thrown if you release it too early.

Does anyone else have this problem? I thought it was much improved on 08 after the patch. It's really funny they dropped the ball yet again on this.

Re: Deep passing game

I turned the knockdowns for the CPU down to 40 or 45, and if I have a fast wide receiver he'll get a good enough step on the DB.

The DB's knock everything down when it's left at default. As far as laeading, I have not been able to lead recivers right or left, but I can lead them forward and backwards.

Re: Deep passing game

I have gotten the occasional deep pass. Mostly on PA passes, sometimes a safety will bite or even a CB. And I notice that its mostly my slot receivers, TE, or HB on streak pattern that can beat a DB on a deep pass. My 2 wideouts hardly ever beat anybody deep.

Pump fake!!! Also timing of the throw. On a deep route, once the WR goes past the CB throw it. Its an automatic step because the CB needs to turn around and run.

You can lead a WR deep and it is a pretty damn nice animation when it happens

Re: Deep passing game

I play on Heisman with AI AWR at 90 and KD at 95 and still hit 1 or 2 deep balls per game. You can definitely lead the WR and I have seen many balls fly over everyone's head.

I like the deep ball this year, its not a money play like it was on the last gen.

Re: Deep passing game

I use the pump fake and it works pretty good sometimes. I've had some beautiful deep balls where I've hit my WR in stride as he's streaking down the sidelines just passed the DB. Looks nice!!!
