I'd like to figure out what the player trait acronyms mean in NFL Pro 2012 for the iPad.

I believe that this is a Madden game.

Here are the traits for the wide receiver: CTH CAR AWR SPD ACC AGI

I think that SPD means "speed" and ACC means "acceleration" but I have no idea what the other ones mean.

Here are the traits for the safety: TAK MCV ZCV SPD ACC AGI

I would love to find documentation which lists out the acronyms and explains what each one does. Even better would be a short strategy guide that explains what I should spend my player points on (e.g., given the choice between spending five points on my safety's TAK or SPD, which should I choose?).

Taking a wild guess: CTH = Catch, CAR = Carry, AGI = Agility. For the safety: TAK = Tackle, MCV = Man Coverage, ZCV = Zone Coverage. I'm not sure what AWR could mean for the WR - Awareness?? – au revoir Jan 25 '12 at 5:46
@Jason, yeah, that should be right. These sound like the same traits in Madden proper. – Dave DuPlantis Jan 25 '12 at 11:27
Hmm ... actually, this isn't a Madden port, which is interesting because it does have an NFL license. Unfortunately, I had no success finding out anything about this game other than the extent to which microtransactions are involved. Hopefully someone else can find something to help you. – Dave DuPlantis Jan 25 '12 at 13:06

For the Wide Receiver:

CTH = Catching
CAR = Carry
SPD = Speed
ACC = Acceleration
AGI = Agility

For the Safety:

TAK = Tackle
SPD = Speed
AWR = Awareness
MCV = Man Coverage
ZCV = Zone Coverage
AGI = Agility

Welcome to Arqade! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – galacticninja Aug 29 '14 at 8:44
