Summary: This game should have been the best game ever for me, its mission is exactly what I am looking for. But the execution was beyond awful. Head Coach 09 is very good - still has some warts but closer to the vision.
Summary: I bought this product for my son who loves the game. However, I bought it used and it keeps freezing up in the middle of the game. I am not disappointed with my purchase in that I pretty much bought it for just shipping but it lends to the old addage "you get what you pay for.
Summary: All The Negativity ...This Game In My Opinion Is A Different Approach To What We Have Already Seen (Madden,and those older titles on older consoles) I Had This For The PC and I Enjoyed This Game It Has Glitches and Bugs But What Game Doesn't.....I am Buying It For The PS2 and I Know I am Going To Have Loads Of Fun.....Its Just Too Bad There Wasn't Another NFL Head Coach To Follow..
Summary: I see the game is getting crappy reviews. I got to say I have had a ball with it. Interviewing new coaches is pretty frustrating, and your Scouting Director is an idiot, that I will admit. I find it refreshing not to have to control the players during the game. Calling plays, instructing player strategies without hitting the square button and the triangle to initiate a superhuman move to gain 5 more yards.
Summary: I've only had this game for a short while, but am buying a copy for my brother, as we're both serious football junkies. He's at the stage now where every game of Madden he plays is an 80-point blowout - time to move on. I read through these reviews first, and I have just one thing to say: It's the attack of the ADD Generation!!!
Summary: The Head Coach game had alot of hype. But it's not as good as you would think because they have the right ideas for the game but they didn't exacute them well. Like Madden does every thing perfectly from the free agency to the scouting. But for the head coach thing they have it so it's challengeing to do it.
"Slurp Slurp!" That's the sound of money being sucked out of your wallet

Summary: THIS IS NOT A VIDEO GAME, first of all. And to make matters worse, EA didn't even bother to get permission from the NFL owners, so the names of the owners on this game are fictitious. Stupid. THAT'S NOT EVEN BILL COWER ON THE COVER! It's a cheap imposter...that right there should tell you something... Just another attempt by EA Games to squeeze a few more dollars out of the saps who are crazy about football.
Summary: I was so excited to get this, and I was very disappointed. It is really hard to get through, and takes forever. However, I believe it is a great start, and could become a great title in the future. I'd wait for Madden, and check out NFL Head Coach '07.
Summary: Man was I excited about this game! I love coaching and I actually love all the behind the scenes things that go on. Motivating players. Hiring players and coaches. Watching budgets. Organizing practices. Calling plays. I was so excited, I very nearly just bought the game. I mean.... THIS IS EA SPORTS!! The same guys who've knocked it out of the park for years with MADDEN and TIGER WOODS. How, could it go wrong. Then, a friend of mine at Blockbuster warned me...
