I originally allowed CBs and Safeties to be used interchangeably to allow for some situations like older CBs being moved to Safety late in their careers as we've seen in the past with guys like Rod Woodson and what is happening now to Ronde Barber. I also figured that putting top CBs in at Safety would have enough drawbacks in tackling and block shedding that it could not be exploited. But I've heard that isn't really the case in Madden. Since I've been asked about this by quite a few owners and since its a topic right now in the NFL I figured I would put this topic to a vote.

The question is: should CBs be allowed to play Safety in our league? Please vote in the poll.

I voted yes but i think in Madden there should be rules, i.e. to cover injury only.

This also affects drafting and FA because if someone thinks they can play a CB at safety then the need to draft one is removed and the need for roster management decreased, FA etc..

I voted yes. Personally I have no problem with it, very rarely do you see a CB who can tackle well enough to really be any use at safety apart from a pure cover safety. I think it really comes down to defensive scheme and what you want from your safety play. I think that should be a free choice and I don't see it as an exploit in any way, but that's just my opinion.

I think its important to explain why i dont agree with a CB playing safety - particularly strong safety:-

The best way to stop offenses is by getting interceptions. If a team has good LB's then the SS becomes more effective by picking passes. One of the more 'unsim' developments in Madden is the superhuman TE's and we have all seen them get big gains by running downfield towards the SS cover area. This is not coincidence:-

The majority of decent SS's (excluding the top couple of guys) have a catch rating in the 60's, which is on average 10 points down on CB's. Also, CB's are generally 7-10 points faster than SS's. The only area a SS seems to have the upper hand over a CB is run stopping - but this trade off doesn't balance out as an average CB will make far more picks playing as a SS than a true SS and therefore becomes more effective, plus the added point that some CB's are also good tacklers.

If this is ok - we could argue that HB's and WR's can be inter-changeable too - and this would also be unsim in my opinion.
