The play call rush/pass split and the rushing inside/outside split could be reduced from the current four textbox input model to using only two. i.e. a player could enter either rush % or pass % and the other value would be 100-x.

The advantage is less input effort/error for the user and less validation on (at least) the server side. The display for the other percent value could be calculated  and displayed client side, then calculated server side either on an as needed basis (lazy) or at form submit. (aggressive) There would be no loss of ability for the user's game plan.

This concept could also be applied to the formation rushing inside/outside values.

Except the numbers aren't percentages - per se'.  You can use any numbering system you want - the chance of something happening or someone doing something.  For example, having RB1 set to 67 and RB2 set to 33 for running outside is the same as setting RB1 to 2 and RB2 to 1 - it all depends on the numbering system a coach wants to use.  (This is the same setup that was used for RB running and WR/TE pass distributions in the former version of GD).
