DB BALL HAWK feature!

I have no problem using this feature in the tutorial but when I try to use it in actual dynasty games, it doesn't work. Every time I hit Y (xbox), the DB stops moving and just stands there. EVERY TIME! The few picks I have had, it usually is a result of the game changing me to the next closest player not the CLOSEST player and the computer then makes a pick.

Anyone else experiencing this?
I have been playing on Heisman.

I struggled with it... and stopped attempting that skill.

I would make the switch to the player, but let the CPU stay in control of the player until the last second where I could press the button for an interception.

It worked better than trying to take control of the DB manually.

The issue I always had was that while I started the play with a different position player, the switch always messed me up. So from the start of the play, I wouldn't move my selected player.

ball hawk feature doesn't work on Heisman, no defensive assist features work on Heisman, but if ur playing any other difficulty u r supposed to hold y not just press it.

Yea, I got caught trying to press the Y button as well for a while in Madden a couple years ago until someone told me you need to hold it. If you take control of a DB, you need to hold down Y while you run to the spot and then at the appropriate time, the DB will jump on his own while you are holding the Y button down.

It works for me and I play on heisman. What rarely works though is the swat button which sucks because I love coming in and swatting a pass down.

really? i was just searching for this because it seems like ballhawk doesn't work. In fact, I haven't seen it work once playing on Heisman yet. And I know ballhawk when I see it because it works on Heisman in NCAA 13. now, it seems like pressing/holding Y does nothing when ball is in the air. Even if it was a player that I controlled manually the whole way through. Which is very frustrating now because I'm giving up silly underthrown bombs because my DB is running ahead of the WR and I can't manually get the guy in position without precise timing which is really hard at real time speed. =/

Yeah my DB ignores that I press Y. It gets very irritating after awhile, hell it cost me the PAC-12 championship.
