I agree, before the update the tripping was OD but it was fixed.
12, to me was a running back's dream. It was so easy to run the ball. This year it seems like the QB and WR s shine more. Based on the trailers it looks like they're going back and making the run game the focus, imo so maybe you'll like it.

I do miss the days where it was about 4 or 5 different franchises making football games.
NFL 2k5 is the best football game to come out since 2005
