    If you look at the LE and LOLB, I think we can see the Option indicators.

    Those aren't the option indicators (I'd bet money those are the impact players). Also that's not the LOLB, but the SS.

    These are the option indicators:

    Touche, sir! And thanks for this post!

    Always appreciated your insight into the option game, in the past and now. Where'd you grab this gem?

    Over on OS. I saw it a while ago in some thread so I just went through their screenshot archive.

    I also seen a video of Ben talking about them adding a skills trainer for NCAA. Seems like it will be an ok thing to learn some new stuff that they throw in. Probably will use it once (I'm sure an achievement will be granted with doing so) and never go back to it

    Option indicators. I assume they stand for "Read" and "Pitch"

    For that triple option play the QB will "R"ead the DE. If he stays at home the he gives the ball to the FB. If he crashes on the back then the QB keeps it. He then reads the safety. If he takes the QB then he'll "P"itch it to the HB. If he takes the HB then the QB will keep it for good.

    Oh, didn't we already know this? Is that like a learning tool for noobs? Or is that there always during all games?

    Supposedly always there. The idea is that on different option plays there are different reads (speed option, triple, spread, counter, power etc.) so for those of us who aren't coaches, seeing the reads preplay makes the option game playable. Basically it shows the players on D that your team will intentionally leave unblocked

    It's actually really nice, even for vets. Just because you "think" you know who the pitch man is, doesn't mean you and the game are on the same page.

    Yeah I never know the "pitch man" per say. I just pitch as soon as I see someone either coming for my QB or going for the Pitch Guy

    Makes sense. Didn't think about it that way.

    The only reason I don't like the pitch man thing is because I took a special pride in being able to run the option better than most. Definitely will make things more difficult now that it will be a much more accessible offense for everyone.

    I am sure that there will still be skill involved..... you can see all of the buttons and routes for receivers before the snap but guys still make horrible throws and some complete a much higher % than others. I think it just makes it a little more accessible for everyone, whether you just want to sprinkle in a little or make it the focal point of your attack.

    It's not a huge difference. Timing is much more of a factor. The pitches didn't seem to be magnetic like that have been in years past.

    The coordinator camera will make it extremely easy to get presnap reads on coverage!

    Hopefully we will see a video before E3, I'm dying to see how this works.
