Madden 11 Franchise Idea: Coach Specific playooks

Ok so I was running my usual Ravens franchise and noticed that my head coach John Harbaugh's contract had expired so I was forced to get me a new Head Coach. So going through the list I noticed that Rex Ryan was available and the first thing that came to my mind is that I can now use their playbook, well I quickly remembered that I can use the Jets playbook regardless of the head coach..... So I thought it would be cool if we could only use the playbook used by head coach, offensive and defensive coordinators (with the choice ot pick between the coordinators and head coach). I think that would bring more of a strategic value in making sure that you hire coaches that fit your schemes and your players. Remember this is for franchise mode only, I know a lot of you like to use random playbooks online.

Makes sense to me. There should be a real identity to hiring coaches in franchise. As it is, their only value is in the ratings boosts. Maybe if this worked, you might like some coach's playbook because it works well for your team even if he sucks as far as ratings boosts.

I was in one online sim baseball league that had you able to change team strategy only by "hiring" a new manager (it was a league house rule, the function wasn't in the game). That rule doesn't exist anymore, but it was awesome and I still hold myself to it.

I would love to see a game implement something like this as an actual feature and football, coaches are even more important, so it would be great for Madden, imo.

Re: Madden 11 Franchise Idea: Coach Specific playooks

Really good idea. I like it.

I'm expecting big things out of Franchise next year (When don't I?) but looking at it, this year the team spent most of their time doing Presentation, Online Franchise and Gameplay Tweaks. So hopefully next year with Josh Looman having a full year to make changes, they can get Franchise close to (hopefully better than) what Head Coach 09 had which was the best Franchise Mode ever.
