Players Become Coaches

Great players that retire in franchise mode can come back to be coaches. Wait a couple of years after your favorite star retires, and he will show up in the coaching free agent list to be signed as an assistant or head coach.

Earn More Cash In Franchise-Cash Assets

While playing a home game in franchise mode, save the game and quit to the main menu. Load the game save you just saved and finish the game. Go to Owner's Mode, then go to the information screen and go to the income. Notice that the money has just been doubled. The more times you save and quit, the more money you will make.

Onside Kick Recovery

When in the onside kick formation, aim the ball all the way up and all the way to the right. Then kick the ball at full power and perfect accuracy. (right footed kicker). Do the opposite of this for a left footed kicker. What SHOULD happen is that the ball will bounce over the head of the deep receiver and land near the goal line. The receiver will probably struggle to recover the ball and you should pick it up before him. This works best in rainy or snowy conditions.

Music Change

Go to main screen, hold X, use L and R to change music.

Free Advertising

To advertise for free, go to the weekly schedule and view the Monday Night Game. Select it, then go and set you advertising all the way up. Play your game then simulate the week. The Monday Night Game still will not have happened. Turn down your advertising and it will be free.

Quick Plays Without A Hudle

After any given play you have three options. First option is to run the same play to do this you have to press the Y button and this will set up the same play you just ran. Your second option is to spike the ball this is a great idea for when you want to conserve timeouts, to do this after running a play press the B button and when your QB hikes the ball he'll spike it and stop the clock. The third and final option is to do a fake spike which can be usefull for faking your oppenet out. To fake spike the ball press X after the play has been ran. The QB will fake the spike and the WRs will run routs so he can throw.
