    Who uses this feature on defense? Do you feel that it works correctly?

    didn't even know it existed this year... it has never worked in any madden before and even double teams don't work right this year. ps2/xbox double teams you actually had two guys manhandling the one guy and he wouldn't be able to get free. now it seems like the safety who is doubling just sort of floats around and if he does try and double just gets dusted by the WR.

    i would have loved for them to bring back the shading. it was the one thing i felt worked when you knew a guy was running a slant to shade inside, it actually seemed to do what you wanted but if the guy did an out route in the opposite direction of the shade, made you pay for your shading

    Didnt know it existed either....
    But as far as double team, I actually think it works better than other years, me myself I havent used the double teams but when I played one of my games they doubled WR Fitzgerald and they actually shut him down. Specially if you have a fast SS/FS it works great. I had to stop throwing to Fitz way in that game becuz even on slants he would catch the pass only to have it knocked out by the safety. The corner would press him and then the safety will follow him over the top, so even on a post, fade, or curl he was covered. I think the only plays that I completed to him were drag routes over the middle. But that gave a chance to my other WR and TE to step up and make plays.

    Haven't used it either but thanks for pointing it out. Gonna have to play with it some and see if it can be of use in certain situations.

    R2 + the receiver icon is how you assign a defender to spotlight a receiver. I believe it is the next gen version of shading, but it doesn't seem to be working appropriately for me this year. So I wanted to toss the subject around to see if anyone has used it and if it has worked for them.

    i've used it a couple teams, specifically when i played the Lions last game. Worked well for me as revis covered underneath and a safety was always over the top bracketing him.

    It works this year? There is no pre-play adjustment display for it.

    i think it may have come back when they did the previous update and reverted back to the original pre snap buttons.

    no joke. hold R2 and you will see the receiver's icons appear above them along with their names below them.

    you're right they do show their letters and names...but there is no spotlight feature this year...when they had it they had a orange circle on them AFTER you then hit their letter...that doesn't happen this year and I thought I read somewhere about how it wasn't in the game this year...
