I love doing this in co-op games...I wish Madden would have had the foresight to include an online co-op franchise capability.
Thats exactly what I expected when they started advertising M10. What the hell is the big deal about online co-op w/o being able to play meaningful games w/ your online buddies.
Online Franchise Co-op is really what will take this game to the next-gen imo.
So until then I'm just playing offline franchise w/ a buddy that either he or I come over to eachother place once or twice a week and its been really fun getting pancakes and setting up running lanes for him, running downfield knocking the snot out of the secondary players lol.
