NFL Head Coach

I'm planning on buying the NFL Head Coach game for the XBox when it comes out next week, how about you guys? I'm going to coach the Saints and it'll be fun to see what I can do in the offseason and get away with in the game. Can I get something decent for Aaron Brooks? Can I get Bentley resigned w/out breaking the bank? Will I be able to trade down in the draft and get Vince Young and a good CB, or should I stay at #2 and get Bush or Hawk?

Here's what I know for sure:
- I'm running the 3-4 defense.
- Will Smith moves to OLB.
- I'm going to make a big offer and try to get Vinatieri.
- Sullivan and AB are goners.
- The OL will be well-fortified.
- I'm going to experiment w/ a 2-QB system.
- I'm going to use a lot of I-formation running w/ Deuce and Karney and setup the play-action pass. Hope to put an offense together like the Cowboys had in the early 90's.

Hate the concept. It's franchise mode on Madden, without getting to play. It would drive me crazy.

RE: NFL Head Coach

A few more notes on the game. I'm really excited about it. Finally, a football game built for 100% strategy instead of button mashing and finger gymnastics that isn't text-based or visually below par.

Even if the game falls short of expectations, it'll still be a ton better than playing Madden. Role-playing an NFL coach sounds like a lot of fun. I hope it takes me back to old days of playing FBPRO on my computer and designing plays and playing in online leagues. I know that I want to at least put my $40 behind it and support the development of sports strategy games from EA. If they could make strategy games for NCAA football and MLB I'd be even more happy.
