    Thank you ttbh


    This perhaps is a stupid question, but can you play as a player in this game?

    I think it's about only being a HC, building your team. Basically seeing the game from the HC prespective.

    Oh. I like playing. Building is great fun too, but I can do that with Madden in franchise mode. I'm not sure the difference but I wont be downloa,,, err buying this game.

    Actually, I am a big fan of playing the game, but I love building franchises and looking at the game from a HC/GM perspective. That is why I'll be getting the game as soon as I by my new laptop, which will have a better graphics card than my current one.

    Yeah I have the game, and im 3-3 in regular season(lets hope mccarthy does better)

    I was very excited about this game, since its the first of its kind, and I knew it would have some flaws, and boy does it!

    The positives outweigh the negatives though, but I am already looking forward to next years.

    I suggest NOT GETTING THIS GAME, unless you have money to throw around, or REALLY wanna try coaching the team in a new but flaed video game.

    ps - I keep yelling at favre, and he doesnt appreciate it...and oh yeah, Carroll was gone the first day I was made coach. :)

    well one of the biggest for me, is the 'office hours' feature. this is when you do whatever, mess with your playbook, roster, substitutes,gameplan,etc.

    however, you can only do 2 actions per office hour. So making carroll a 5th string DB and then putting ferguson 4th WR is 2 actions, ur done for that period of office hours. I think they should have given you at least 4 actions. Cuz it took me forever to get a good depth chart and a good playbook. playbook takes...forever!

    another thing is the Qbs in the game are so dumb. You can coach em up all day, motivate all day, practice all day, and they still make dumb decisions.

    And the motivate options are too limited. there is either a passive or aggresive motivation tactic. What if Gado just made a huge run and I just wanna give him props, why does my motivation have to be critical?

    There are more but these are the ones I am thinking about now(as i play the game, lol).

    Like i said, its the first head coach game, and next years will be polished and should be real good.

    oh and the headset function doenst work good at all.

    I was SO anticipating calling the plays through my ps2 headset(picture me screaming at the tv....i was looking forward to this).

    It is extremely choppy and barely works.

    This should be fixed for next years version.

    Just wait to get NFL Head Coach 2008

    I rented the game and i think it is kind of poor you cant play any players and the qbs make awful calls most of the time. Dont waste your money on this Buy Madden Because It IS THE BEST FOOTBALL GAME EVER.

    why would you be able to play with a player? Its...a COACHING game..

    as I am playing, the QB does get smarter. It takes time\practice\reps\motivation...but it could be better.

    Why not be able to play as the player? It could be more interactive. Who the heck wants to just sit back an watch? I agree it is fun to see your 'creation' wreak havoc, but golly gosh I would much rather be dishing out the pain then watching someone else.

    The kid is right. Get Madden.

    -If you wanna play as the players, get Madden.
    -If you wanna coach the team and build it through assistant coaches,draft,fa, and watch your team win or lose because of YOUR choices, then get NFL Head Coach (next year, not this years version).
