Where are we with Showing "RB" on the wr drop down menu on the formation page for shotgun?  I need this bad.  

You guys said you would do this.  My reggie bush really wants to play next season and if I tell him he is a wr instead of a rb then he will get mad and not work as hard plus he will magicly become less elusive.

Stick him at RB in the Trips formation.  Same thing.

I would love this. 

Would be nice to be able to use TEs in the fullback position as well.

H-Back postions (lines up at TE/FB)   - Chris Cooley type
WR/RB -- scat back ?  -- Dexter McCluster type

Jumbo package -- add a OL at TE (receiver eligible?)

I don't want to use trips. I want to disguise reggie bush into the shotgun.

Yeah, with the importance of formation IQ (maybe kinda sorta - still unknown in version 3), you can't just use a different formation to get one guy in the game if your team has focused on another formation for multiple seasons prior.  Well you can, but it shouldn't be as effective as if you used the formation your team has been practicing.

Great Idea.

I like the idea, but if we are going to start doing that kind of thing, then we need to be able to match up 1 on 1 with our defenses.  I would want to bring a corner or safety to match up with your Reggie Bush....and give him a nice "pop" at the line every single play.

So, if we cannot defend against those kinds of nuances, then I'm against it until the defenses have the capability to match up.

Wish we could recruit players without regard to position, and assign position once they sign and report

Or do some "natural" conversions with less penalties.  RB to WR, WR to RB, RB to TE,

This would be pretty simple to address if the developers had the time or inclination; include another 'position' in the recruit pool that is "Athlete" (just as we have in actuality), and then when you change the position there would be no effect on attributes.  They could set it so you receive an email from the Althlete recruits during exhibition: "Glad to be here, coach, where do you think I would best fit into your system?" etc.

To me - all of these should be possibilities - just make this game more creative and use some imagination. Recruiting, formations, player positioning, and other things. But just a dream, two years and they can't get the engine right - <big sigh and plants forehead into the keyboard>
