Just to throw this out there. Shouldn't Tech for a QB mean Accuracy? Look at all the hubub being made over Tebows' accuracy. Shouldn't Strength relate to not only how far a QB could complete a pass but on if he can throw an out? A weak QB should get penalties in trying to go long or throw sideline routes. As for Hands...Let me remind you of some pretty great WRs with not a lot of speed. Max McGee, Fred Bilitnikopf, Lance Alworth, Wes Welker. None of them known for blazing speed but all with GREAT hands and some of the great clutch WRs.
And how about letting us get our TEs more into the pass game? I've had some great TEs as I'm sure many others have, and can't get them the ball.
Speed in Linemen needs to mean more. I've seen guys with 4 SPD get a ton of sacks. I have had some very quick OLines that evidently couldn't pull their Guards worth a crap to run a power sweep. I mean really? A DL with no speed but is a top sacker? How elusive can a guy be if he can't run? A guy could have all the moves of Madonna but if he can't get more than 5 steps from the time the ball is hiked and the play is over, so what? Who's he going to fool?
While I'm wishing for the moon, I'd also like to see a 1 RB, 2 TE and 2 WR Offensive formation. Kind of the old double wing but more like the Redskins used with Riggins. But that is just a personal preference. I would love to run that and Trips as my offense.
I have long felt and have sent many a ticket requesting that the ratings be changed to reflect reality. So things like Technique should be removed entirely and the specific skills should be inserted in place. So the QB would have accuracy, passing technique, arm strength, core strength, etc. and a RB would have things like catching, route running, running with and without ball, arm strength, core strength, etc. The techniques wouldn't change when you changed positions, but the strength, speed, etc. stats would.
