Pass Lead (Sensitivity): When you throw the ball to a receiver, you can hold a direction to throw it high, throw it low, lead them or throw it behind them depending on the direction they are running and which direction you hold while the QB is throwing. I'm pretty sure this setting controls how significant the effect is. As a side note I'm sure most are aware but I'll mention it anyway, tab the button for a lob, hold the button for a bullet pass. Later on they named it "precision passing" but it was always there
Also, players accelerate way too quickly in Madden 08, I usually global edit player accelerations -70 then +30 for a net 40 reduction and 30 minimum of acceleration
In general, players move too quickly in Madden. You can measure it and most receivers can run a sub-4.00 40 time when sprinting at full speed. Technically, you could fix this by lowering the RB Ability slider, but that would result in bad stuff happening, like lots of fumbles or no broken tackles. There is also globally lowering Speed so that people isn't too fast, but I'm not entirely a fan of that one.
