Next suggestion - sub packages.
You can kinda do it now, but not terribly well. For instance, in my nickle package I would probably want to move Parker inside to the under-tackle and slide Irvin over to LDE. The only way I can effectuate that right now is to make Parker my backup LDT, have him play 20% of the time and then set it to pass-bias.
Well that's still going go have him playing LDT in a fair number of base fronts and it'll get his ass kicked a bit.
Instead, I'd like to be able to simply set my nickel defense personnel as well as my dime personnel; not just in the secondary, but in the box as well. Those guys are just as critical to the success of your nickle as the secondary and with the rise of the spread offenses, it's going to be more important than ever that we're able to adjust them as needed.
I'm also curious, when looking at the 'pick to players to remove from your dime' setup, can I go into a 3-2-6 if I wanted to? It does look like I could remove my LDT from the field, but would my WLB drop into coverage at that point and actually treat it like a 3-2-6 or would he try to crash the line and !@#$ everything up?
Brass-tacks question, I guess, is essentially whether or not the present sub-packages work like they should...
