I was wondering the same thing.
My son has the playstation system but I was wondering if it was any good as well before I go and buy it.

Is the game available for the PC.

I'm pretty excited about this game...I like to play franchise in Madden but I simulate most of the games so I'm more into the coaching aspect. I hope this game isn't as much of a let-down as superstar mode was.

OK...installed NFL Head Coach for the PC.....

For those of you who have played Computer games....think "The Sims" meets "Madden NFL"

You can choose to either "Start a Career"...or "instant coach"...among other options....

I chose to start a career....it was rather cool...I interviewed with 5 teams...(I picked the Steelers as one of them)...I received 5 "job offers"....and I (LOL) of course chose the Steelers offer

I havent gone too far with it...but from what I can see...you interact with the owner...you interact with coaches and players...you manage the salary cap....examine the combines....participate in the draft...run a training camp...and eventually coach an entire season...

They seem to incorporate the entire head coaching experience...Im looking forward to going further with it and see how the game plays...from what I can see early on...its a "THUMBS UP"

EA Sports ..in my humble...have always put out outstanding sports sims...this one seems to do the franchise proud...

I'll post more as I move through the game

When I started my coaching career, the very first trade offer I got was from the Jaguars...they wanted to trade Kyle Brady for Chris Henry. I thought about that one for a while, but ended up declining it...however I did accept a trade from the Patriots that gave me Mike Vrabel for Tory James and Craig Krenzel.

And just so you know, the Steelers got Vince Young in the draft. lol Reggie Bush fell all the way to the Falcons (very scary running attack needless to say).

I'm 1-0...29-12 win over the Chiefs. The Steelers are also 1-0. Skipping drills is suicide...I simulated one of them and 3 guys got injured in it. Who'd you get in the draft, Blitzburgh?

Hey for you guys who have the game, I think a few of you should post your career modes with updates and stuff. They do it on the ign.com message boards with Madden, NCAA, Head Coach, and pretty much any sports game. They are pretty successful over there, well atleast the ones with an insider account b/c they can use colors and pictures, and since everyone can do that here, I think it can be really successful over here.

HAHA yah some of them get too into it over on ign but what really annoys me is all the spamming that the people do on there....Im there to follow a franchise not argue over the stupid little things that they do.

I just thought it be pretty interesting over here since you dont have to pay to be able to use pictures and stuff and I think they can be pretty good over here, especially with the creative people that are on the forums.

I'd love to know how Robinson is worth a 1st round pick, even if it is still a game.....but hey I think that Drew can help you out, especially if he breaks more runs like that.:cool:

Basically because he was the best player available (besides Vince Young)...I could've reached on a CB or Defensive Tackle, but I figured most of them would be around in the 2nd/3rd rounds. I really wanted to take a DE but all the good ones were gone by the time I picked.

I figured I would have to replace Willie Anderson eventually and Ferguson would be a good choice. Plus, I was able to get Ashton Youboty (my 2nd CB) in the 2nd and Claude Wroten (my starting DT) in the 3rd.

On Madden 06 in franchise you can sign players to contracts do scouting and a draft. Also somewhat of a training camp and make your own plays as well as play or sim your team or the whole season. Whats the diff between the two?

The sign players is basically the same, just a different look. You actually have to call the players' agents and negotiate a deal...there isn't that little meter that tells you if the guy will accept. The scouting in Head Coach is just a little more in depth, you get a number range (overall rating) for each prospect and the number range becomes smaller as you recruit the prospect. The training camp is a lot different. You have non-contact drills that you run each week...1v1 WRvDB, 1v1 RBvLB, pass skeleton, 1v1 OLvDL, running drills, etc. and when you run these drills, your players progress a little bit but not in a definite +3, +2, +1 way like in Madden. In Head Coach when you create plays, you have total control, you can position players, assign blocking, change routes, etc. Also in Head Coach, you run drills and contact practices each week.

There are way too many "load screens" while playing this game. :yawn:

The load screens will be a picture of a coach and a quote from him or another well known coach in NFL history. Some of them are pretty ironic... one is a picture of Holmgren with the quote "A winner never whines" from Paul Brown of all people. Another one is "So what if we won ugly" from Bill Cowher, just to name a couple.

Anyone else feel that this game is kind of easy? Right now I'm 8-1 with the Bengals...I did get killed by the Steelers, but besides that game I've been dominating my opponents. I see a lot of others with similar results...just wondering. I guess I'll find out for real once I get into the playoffs.

I think it's too easy also... the computer can't move the ball on my defense at all, and from what I can find there is no place to adjust the difficulty level. :thmbdown:
