It's an awesome idea. If they implement it correctly, it should be great.

i have been waiting for a game like this for a long time, i love tryin to build a team sometimes and not play it but its nto as good on madden. I wonder if you are just the coach, or the GM too. The preview never said anythign about FAs, it just said draft.

Sounds like an awesome game. I will be sure to buy this one because I am getting into the coaching business myself. Maybe it will help me get more in depth with it.

its electronic arts, it will suck the most ****ing donkey balls of any game ever created, and will take at least 5 steps back like every game they have made the last 5 years or so

Sounds fun actually. I've always been the type who prefers the owner-mode type stuff on recent football games rather than the actual gameplay itself.

I wonder if you can start off as an assistant and work your way up the ladder to Coordinator and eventually, Head Coach, while moving from team to team to take on better opportunities. THAT would make the game really cool.

Looks great. It will definately be worth a rent when it comes out.

It'd be neat if they had an option of hitting players over the head with a lead pipe for disobeying team rules.

Unrealistic? How many team meetings have YOU sat in on?

Pretty good info on the game
http://www.gamespot.com/xbox/sports/nflheadcoach/news.html?sid=6135877&mode=recent

It's an old article though (October 17th, 2005)



Gamers may not have a choice in who makes their NFL games in the wake of Electronic Arts' five-year exclusive rights deal with the league, but they still have a choice when it comes to the style of gameplay. The publisher is already well known for its traditional simluation football Madden series and the arcade-styled Street franchise, but today the company introduced a third pillar for release next year: the strategy-centric sim NFL Head Coach (working title).

Departing from the traditional sports sim game in a couple key ways, NFL Head Coach will not only bring 3D graphics to the traditionally static and spreadsheet-based genre, but also it will also appear on consoles. EA has announced that Head Coach is in development at EA Tiburon for a spring 2006 release on the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC. It also appears that EA is making a conscious effort to make the game more accessible than the average sports strategy title, beyond just giving it a coat of polygonal paint and releasing it for new platforms.

Maybe a stupid question, but do you actually get to play the games too, or do you just coach them?

I'm pretty sure you just get to coach the game from the sidelines. I'm actually very interested to see if they pull this off correctly.

Imagine if your first gig, you're pucked up as an offensive coordinator. And you have the option of playcalling from the booth.

Great idea IMO. :D

I hope they have a mode in which you become GM and you are named responsible for hiring the cheerleaders, so to "audition" them you bring each indicate inside your office and shut the door and.....

Well now I don't think I have to finish this sentence do I?

This game is either goona be a Hit or miss, it will either be a great game or it will completely miss and be a horrible game, it has the potential to be great and i hope it is

Well if you can find my IN-STORE DATES thread I did mention this title and now i've been off work for a bit now (still healing from surgery) so i've lost touch a bit with release and all that. There is another game focusing on some other aspect of the NFL....maybe (more than likely) it was GM, it's also by EA. It too is on that IN-STORE DATE list. :up:

My favorite sports sim is Football Manager (http://www.footballmanager.co.uk/en/index.html)

I have a few friends that love Front Office Football (http://www.solecismic.com/) abd say it's great for NFL type football. They say the user interface is pretty horrible, but the realistic simulation is great.
