Does anyone know of an actual useful and comprehensive list of the on-the-field controls for Madden NFL '12? A simple (but complete!) list of buttons and what they do would be rather nice.

The in-game manual is awful, and my google-fu is not helping.

  • This is missing controls for when you turn off some features, such as Auto-Sprint. I have sprint on the right trigger, but I probably customized it.
