    I've played 2 games so far, and here are my initial thoughts on the demo:

    - The speed of the game is much faster. It might be that the speed threshold is at a default of 50. But HB's are making cuts without hardly slowing down and WR's are catching and running all in one motion.

    - Blocking on kick returns seems better.

    - Zone coverage has vastly improved. You have to really read the safety on deep routes, cause he will swat/intercept it.

    -Running out of the spread seems doable. I havnt played as Oregon yet though. I ran 2 plays out of the pistol with FSU, a 2 yard QB keeper on a read option and a 10 yard pitch off a speed option.

    - Blocking kicks looks doable. I got close.

    Ill probably try to get in a couple of more games. What are your thoughts on the demo?

    I agree on all of what Mexi said. It is much faster and just smoother overall. It is a noticeable difference. And there are a bunch more sacks. You have to decide quickly, which is tough because zone is better.

    I've heard about a lot of kick offs that have been returned for touchdowns. That concerns me. They may have over corrected and it probably needs to be tuned back down.

    I only played on Heisman and kick returns were better but nothing was close to a TD.

    It can be tuned by changing the user run block slider.

    Im loving the PBs for defense. There are a ton of good zone blitzes out of nickel, and they now include the 1-5-5 look. Also there is a quarter normal, which will help against spread teams. Plus the 3-4 has a lot of nice blitzes out of it also. Cant wait to start creating playbooks. I think this is where Ill spend most of my time.

    I'm scared for my marriage with the playbook builder.
