In Backbreaker you can choose to show blitz, which will walk linebackers and safeties up to the line of scrimmage, but have you ever wondered how to shift the d-line? Technically you can’t, but i found a work around that will allow you to move your defensive lineman. This only works in the 4-3, 3-4, Nickel, and Dime formations.
Note: Doesn’t work in the 4-4 formation, 4-6, 3-3, Goaline, 3 Deep
All you need to do to shift your defensive line is to flip the play while you’re on the field. Tada that’s it! On Xbox 360, hold the LB button and press the LS button on the left analog stick. On PS3, hold the L1 button and press the L3 button on the analog stick.
