    I know Ego runs it. Anyone else?

    Here's what I'm thinking - Seems like I see more three wide sets than any other kind of set. The 4-3 and 3-4 seem to be geared towards the standard two-wide sets. I think the 3-4 is more flexible than the 4-3 when it comes to third down and blitz packages, but I just don't have the backers to go 3-4, and I have too many good linemen not to keep four down.

    Also, I like to play the FS, and the 4-2-5 usually plants him in the middle of the field, or gives him more chances to make plays. I have three good free safeties, and just picked up two more. I'm thinking of making SS out of one or two, and maybe a corner out of another, and running the 4-2-5 next year. It'll give me a chance to play more upperclassmen, suffer fewer position changes, and make the most of next year's personnel.

    So what are the downsides? I know how I attack it, and I don't need anyone to give away any secrets, but how does it do against the CPU? Any issues?
