no max protect plays? Generally speaking a good blitz should have a max cov that looks the same to take advantage of the opp blocking extra to stop the blitz

I noticed some plays have been removed from some of the defensive playbooks. Is there a reason for this?

No. It is for this year. The Quarter Normal Defense had the Under Smoke blitz in it and I was looking for it again and now its not in the Seahawks defensive book.
