In the off season when re-signing a player, you can save money by changing a players position. Go to the roster and player management to change their position. You must have an excess of players in the position you are changing from to allow the players position to be changed.
Maximum points 255 is the maximum amount of points your teams can score. After that point, the scoring stops recording on the scoring summary. For example, if the play that yields the 255th point is a 45 yard TD pass, for every touchdown after that (be it rushing, passing, defensive or return) the message at the top of the screen will always be "45 yard pass" before it says "extra point". Also, your scoring summary will stop recording. Your passing rushing and receiving statistics will still be recorded (to a point), and the drive summary will still say what you did on that drive.
Maximum rushing and receiving yards 1023 is the maximum rushing and receiving yards in a game. After that point, it stops recording. If you are a WR or RB in Superstar mode, it counts against you for any extra caries (or catch) you have, thus decreasing your yards per carry (or yards per catch). Oddly enoughy, your QB has a far higher passing limit. 8191 is the maximum rushing/receiving yards you can have in a season.
On 4th down with the Steelers go to shotgun normal with one tight end and three wide receivers. Select "Quick Punt." When you snap the ball your quarterback will quickly punt the ball. Run to the ball and just start running for a touchdown. If the ball goes out of the endzone the other team gets a safety. This only works on 4th down.
When you finish a game in Superstar mode do not save or turn off your system, do all the practices and gameplans and begin the next game. Do the coin toss and select to receive or kick or direction depending on coin toss. When you get to the screen with the play the coach chose for the kickoff, pause game play and save the game. Then, turn off the system. When you turn the game on and load Superstar mode, you should have all of your influence points and role points from the previous game. For instance, if you finished game 1 with 100 influence points, you will have 100 influence points at the start of game 2 to build on.
Do the following if your corner backs drop easy picks or your outside line backers are too slow to make tackles. Go to Rosters and edit the position of some Wide Receivers to make them Corner Backs. For Safties,edit the position of some Safties to make them Outside Linebackers. By using this, your Corner Backs/Safties get many more interceptions, and your Outside Linebackers get more sacks, and tackles.
-Recommended players for position editing:
Wide Receiver to Corner Back Steve Smith, Carolina Panthers Randy Moss, Oakland Raiders Plaxico Burress, New York Giants
