Re: Run/Pass commit under threat

You are already guessing the pitch by choosing whether to swing or miss; the function just adds another boost on top of how you guess (which in many cases, the CPU again does not get)....

Clint (an ex-player) has said repeatedly that there is no real-life comparison to this. I can't confirm nor deny that as I never played in real-life. But, 'selling-out' for run or pass is just as easily accomplished in Madden by your play calling skills (or lack thereof).
I wouldn't mind seeing it gone either, but it seems to me like the CPU does use it now. Post patch I've had several runs where my line has just pancaked the whole CPU line right into the ground. I thought it was a bug at first until I saw the Twitter discussion about R/P commit. The CPU has to be using it on occasion, IMO.

Do this today: Instead of $%*#!@& on a game you're not going to play or movie you're not going to watch, say something good about a piece of media you're excited about.

Do the same thing tomorrow. And the next. Now do it forever.
