I've never played Madden and I've been following this team for over 40 years now. Also, I am certainly not the first person to suggest a position move for Mays. There was talk of this before he was even drafted. It was part of the reason why he lasted until the second round. Because of his body type, he is a bit of a tweener.
If you had actually read all of the posts I made in this thread, I made it quite clear that the purpose of my suggestion was so that the Niners could take full advantage of Mays' strengths (i.e. straight line speed and athleticism) and try to minimize his weaknesses (i.e. changing directions, play diagnosis, general coverage).
I also suggested the Niners, now that they have a creative, intelligent coaching staff again could create a hybrid position for him that they could use in certain situations...in blitzing situations, for example when Mays would have a clear shot at the QB and not have to deal with an OT. If you followed the team in the Walsh era, you would known that the team did this with Jeff Fuller on occasion, who was a large and athletic safety like Mays.
The issue I see in the Zone is that some guys are too quick to criticize....even before they comprehend the actual post.....so next time....read the damn posts!
