It doesn't force you to punt right? I thought it just made the likelihood of a completion much lower. I saw Madden interviewed about it and he sounded kind of pissed about how everyone always goes for it on 4th and how that is totally unrealistic.

No, you don't have to punt, but it's a lot harder.

Just finished my first season in franchise with the Steelers. Undefeated Super Bowl champs...I think I should raise the difficulty from "Pro." Roethlisburger threw for 80+ TD's and 5500+ yards, with Trung Canidate (free agent, 97 speed) rushing for another 36 and 2700+ yards. Ward and Randle El each received for over 2000 yards and 20 TD's. Joey Porter had 44 sacks. Chad Scott had 19 picks, 9 for TD's...if only the Steelers were really this dominating.

Thanks to the player progression system, everyone on my team is now a 90+ rating, . I think I need to start over...this team is unfair...but it's so fun scoring 100 points on the Patriots and intercepting Tom Brady 8 times, ...

That does sound a little dominating. Is it true that they give you progressions every 4 weeks or something??

Ya, they give progressions every four weeks, but I think that the max they can improve in that time is two overall. In the playoffs, I think my players improved every week.

That's kinda good if someone is on a hot streak but if someone goes a long time without an interception or sack it looks like it can put them in a real slump.

Yeah, I just got the game and IO play on All-Pro. It's a little more difficult, but I still beast at it. I'm 5-1 right now with the Pats...#1 in AFC East. I also like the Progression system. That's tight. It makes it way more realistic. The one the I didn't like was the "position battles". That was lame because whoever wasn't picked complained and the game said that could bring down morale and cause him to want out of his contract. Overall, fun game.

Ya, I didn't like how the posistion battles worked that much either...I had a 3-4 defense, and the MLB that wasn't No. 1 complained...kind of dumb since they're both starting...

But this is how the game really is. Look at the Bills with the RB siuation or most of the QB controversies.

Ya, RB's or QB's often get out of control in real life, but not other posistions so much...how many times have you heard about a O-lineman demanding a trade? Still, it's kind of a hassle when I plan to use Duce and Bettis about the same and Bettis explodes on me because he's number 2 on the depth chart.
