Glad you posted this. Last Madden I got so frustrated simply because they did nothing to improve the defense yet they significantly improved the offense in both run and pass. It almost made it pointless to go into zone or play the 4-3 defense when the reaction time of the defensive backs were sluggish. It is the main reason I just stopped playing Madden. Hopefully this year they fulfill their promises and the game is balanced out until they decide to once again stupidly improve only one side of the ball.
