Another reason firing should be off, is that each time they get fired, they'd have to create a new coach. Which means they would lose their coaching level which lowers the cost of buying things with xp. so it would kind of be like kicking them when theyre down.
To me it looks like the rookie drafts will always be the same every time you start a new franchise. That's not a guarantee but i've got the same two in back to back ccms.EDIT: I was wrong about this, tried a third franchise and got a different draft.
Kurt Warner comes out of retirement.
The trading block system seems to become better the second year. They start adding players along with picks. Now the trades still don't make the most sense(greg jennings for a 3rd and some 77 ovr fb)
If you cant play your game against a user and given week. Just click on simulate and it will allow the other user to play or simulate the game. Pretty helpful if someone has to miss a week for any reason. But make sure you aren't going to want to play the game when you hit simulate because it will not let you take it off of simulate.
That's all i have for now.
Edit: The scouting is actually pretty fun. I've had two people i've been set on drafting switch positions on me after the superbowl. One was an 87 corner who switched to receiver and was now an 80. The other was a 72 qb, with 90 speed, 90 TP and 80 plus who switched to wr. Make sure you watch the tweets because those are the only indicator that something will happen. They also give hints at which projected low draft picks are actually going to be good.
Another thing for teams that like to build through the draft and pick up a lot of draft picks. It's pretty hard to scout enough players to know what you are doing on every pick. There will be a lot of picks where it's just a choose one out of a hat situation.
Players no longer want ridiculous contracts. Sam Shields used to want 10 million a year and he is a mid70 corner. I remember Olb's used to want ridiculous money, same with receivers. Now it's tamed way back. Elite players still want huge contracts but you won't be paying out the ass for your nickel corner. It can be a little unrealistic and in your favor at times too, which can be nice. For example, Bj. Raji signed for a little over 2 million a year.
Another thing that got me was their award system. If you go to season awards it'll only show Coach of the Year and Mvp. To see Offensive/defensive rookie of the year, you would have to go to Nfc/Afc. I personally don't like that they did that, but if you want to find the awards that's how you do it.
