Madden 2005 needs a Coach Mode

Front Page Sports Football Pro used to have one, and it was a blast. You call the plays and let the AI-controlled players implement them. The chess aspect of football is the most interesting one, in my opinion, and this is the only way to be able to make the experience a purely strategic one. It’s a little ironic that the only role you can’t play properly is the one that the guy for whom the game is named made his name playing.

Love the new logos, though, especially the ability to use your own colors with them. I’m approaching the playoffs in my fourth sixteen-game season with 2004 – the addiction is under control.
