    The Rookies through 15 Weeks.... This is major part on not advancing deeper into the EA create a player mode.

    So I posted this at the beginning of the season :

    Entering the year Jermaine Barclay was the highest rated rookie, he's since fell 52 spots in the ranking. At a respectable 74 OVR; pretty fair for a rookie. While he did regress, 52 others didn't. This includes not even ranked QB Rich Doughty of KC who is now a 99 OVR QB in 15 weeks of NFL play. All before post season progression points are applied.

    RG Kirk Baker while not in the initial top 10 comes in as a 91 OVR... 93 STR / 93RBK / 93IBK / 84PBK
    TE Keland Phelps has progressed and maintained as expected coming in at a 90 OVR

    The QB's - Doughty (KC), Guy (PHI), Bailey (HOU) the AVG OVR is 91
    While last years Johnny Martin (NYJ) 99 OVR, Brett Hudson (DAL), Trip Burns (BAL), Macon Stallworth (CHI) have all passed Andrew Luck. Rodgers is next to fall; but each draft class will produce at least 3 once in a life time QB.

    The Protectors - Baker (SEA), Grant (DAL), Jordan (KC), Gonzalez (HOU) - All fail to reach the elite level of Tyron Smith, arguably best OL in NFL. But all are better than Luke Joeckel, after progression points they'll be on an elite level.

    it just shows you how much this progression system needs improving. It's way too easy to find something that might be the hardest thing to find in real life, an elite QB. There is no reason that all these guys should already be rated 90 overall and up in one or two years.

    Then veterans go from 90 spd to 75 in one offseason when they hit 32 or 33.

    There are some good things in the way CFM works but, it just seems like EA doesn't really test this stuff out too much. Or at least I hope not. If they did and thougt it was fine that might be worse.

    Yea it's still highly unrealistic. No way should 30% + of each class elevate to elite status in one season really. Like you said alot of good but the draft classes are still broke.

    It's too easy to manually progress players. Players should progress naturally based on things like development rating, playing time, and coach traits. Instead of being able to cherry pick the abilities we want to improve, we should set our schemes and/or priorities and players should develop accordingly. Assistant coaches could be huge too, certain guys might have traits that help Certain positions or even certain attributes.....

    Just my .02

    That is amazing.

    I really like this progression system but it's flawed like everything else EA does. How many STAR, lock down CBs have been drafted? The reason is because coverage is SO expensive to upgrade. The same should hold true for other positions key attributes. IMO QBS, OL, and DL are way too easy to progress because of how cheap accuracy, RBK and PBK and BSH is.
