Is there a way to play Madden by just picking plays and watching the results?

The reason I ask this is because I would like to just call the plays as the coach or the offensive coordinator and the defensive coordinator. I am an old school video gamer but I do enjoy the games that are out today. I enjoy the modern Madden game and love the close to television like graphics, the atmosphere, even the game play seems better then ever.

But as an old school gamer going back to a game called Micro League Baseball from the nineteen eighties, it basically put you in the managerial position only and allowed you to manage the game and watch the game play out as you managed. There was a magic to that style of game because the game did not measure your skills by your hand-eye coordination and how quick you were with a gamepad, it measured your skill by how well you used your brain to manage the game.

There was a Micro League Football game made around the same time as well though I am not as familiar with that title.

But I digress.

I would like to just be the coach and focus on the managing of the football game. By not focusing on using the gamepad to control the actual action, it would free up my brain to try to outsmart my opponent by out managing, or out coaching them.

Does any of the modern Madden games allow one to do this? I seem to remember that Madden games allowed for this in the mid 2000's and even allowed you to watch in the "TV styled broadcast cam". I have Madden 2016 for xbox one and I haven't found any options for this, even the "TV styled broadcast cam".

Set camera setting to broadcast and turn coach mode on in Main Menu settings.

Loved the micro league football and baseball as a kid. Front Page Sports still may be the best football game ever made. Wish they still made that one. For those that donít remember, it was like the PlayStation to ps2 jump of Madden. Graphics werenít as good, but the gameplay, playbooks, and roster ratings worked. Not sure if that game had sliders.

I would love to see this in an online franchise where this is the rules. It would be perfect
