Here is the thing, hanging on the idea of “boss battle” is silly. Had they called it “gridiron objectives” no one would really flinch about it. The idea is there are weekly goals not all that different from a lot of the weekly objectives currently in franchise across all your players, these ones are just more up front and center because of QB1. All I can say is just wait and see, I promise it’s not as convoluted as you’d think.

Whether it's called "gridiron objective" or "boss battle" it's still arcade garbage. It's not silly to be concerned about it. We get it. It's just repackaging XP goals as some new feature. I didn't like the Mario Brothers progression then and I don't like it now, no-matter what you call it. Either way, it's not some major new franchise feature for this EA franchise re-dedication. It's just repackaged XP/Goals arcade crap.

I will put it this way: If having to hear marketing terms like "boss battles" is what it takes to get Franchise some attention, I'm all for it.

Why don't we call free agency and a coach carousel the "Battle Royale" and fix that too?

It's not the term that bothers me, it's the implementation.

Also, what in the world is this "Coach Mode" they keep vaguely referring to?

Its not even the implementation, its that ia has zero to do with football.

Going up against JJ Watt this week, a coaching staff says are we sliding the line to him? Doubling him? Chipping? Madden says “lets throw for 400 yards to get double xp”

There is such a disconnect between franchise players and madden.

The more I read this year the worse I feel about this game. We finally get them to put time into franchise mode and they listen to none of our ideas.

Can't wait for some radical boss battles..

Franchise played for a coach’s Perspective.

What you just stated is exactly why I don't like the implementation. I've hated the progression system ever since M13. It pushes so many aspects away from realistic and pushes them toward arcade. It's frustrating.
