In a new blog on the official Madden 08 site, Producer Ian Cummings goes over some of the less publicized aspects of Madden 08 and displays examples in a video. The topics touched on are team specific celebrations, bad weather jukes, short yardage play-action, defender fakeout logic, and “Mario running” fixes. You can check out the full blog posting here.

This is another really good blog from the Madden team showcasing things in the game that may generally be glossed over by the media sites and casual fans. As cool as the short yardage play-action looks, I only wish for a time when I can run play-action consistently without getting sacked before my QB even turns around. For myself that continues to be the most frustrating thing in EA football games.
