  • Same thing here. My starting QB works fine, I start and play out games, and in the preseason I start a half and sit a half.. But my backup RB just gets simmed even when he's on the field.
  • Since the update, I do not get an opportunity to play games in Franchise mode, even when my player (who is a backup RB) comes into the game. If he isn't selected as a starter, the Super Sim sims the entire game, even the times when he is on the field. Therefore, I do not get to play at all.

  • In Franchise Mode when I play my First Round Draft Pick QB, when my team gets the ball the Super Sim ends and I lead my offense onto the field. Yet when I play my Undrafted RB, even when he gets brought into the game during the preseason, I never get to control him and the whole game gets simulated. So, if your character…
  • I like that idea. I also like the inverse of someone could just have an awful year and take a OVR hit because of it. The one drawback I could see is that a really good player could draft Joe Scrub with a 40 OVR, start him and pick off 20 balls and Joe Scrub would suddenly be a valuable CB. Maybe it could be tied to the…
  • 5. Yes, and I don't know if there is.
