Why beat around the bush when you can have a Letterman-like Top 10 list - Here we go:

#10: When a free agent approaches you no player stats can be seen - How on earth are you suppose to determine what a player's worth is without being able to check his resume?

#09: Some free agents are being offered to you over-and-over-and-over again. Even with a full roster this happens. How many times can you push the skip/ignore button? Then when an interesting player does come along, you have 10 seconds to make up your mind if you want to bid or not - For every player. How realistic is this? NOT !!!

#08: When skipping an event (for example: DRAFT) the user end's up with half a dozen or more signed players for positions which you did not need players for.

#07: No cap-room penalties when cutting players. Yes, you pay a heavy fine but it does not count against next year's cap space. As far as I know this is a 2010 NFL rule - Why is the in-game 2009 season like that?

#06: When coaching an actual game, the atmosphere in the stadium is sub-zero. All the cheers you know from scoring a TD in Madden or stopping a 3rd-and-long attempt are gone - It's one monotone-reminiscent-of-a-C64-computer-audio file. Furthermore, the voice-overs (this time from the Offensive and Defensive Coaches) do not match the action on the field. Case: Somebody just scored a TD against me - My DEF Coach goes 'Now that's what I like to see - Well done' - WHAT? Last but not least, it rains way too often (as always in Madden) - At times you think you are playing in the Amazon jungle; drip-drop monsoon style.

#05: The screen font is microscopic at times - Often the information on your TV is hard-to-read.

Firstly, unless you are very familiar with the intricacies of American Football you are likely to get lost in this game instantly. It is NOT a pick up and play game. You need reasonable knowledge of how a NFL franchise actually works. If not, then you need to read up quite extensively.
However, if you are willing to put the time and effort into the game then it is a rewarding, albeit slow, experience. I have not experienced many of the problems a previous reviewer pointed out and to be honest if you don't want to do the draft then why are you buying a NFL Head Coach game, the draft is a key element of the game. It is like playing Football Manager without wanting to get involved in signing players!
The match experience usually takes around 45 minutes a game and runs similar to a Madden game. Presentation is ok, but not a televeised experience like Madden. It is more like what a head coach would see. It definitely needs tidying up a bit and it doesn't give you vital information like if an opposing side has a key player injured during the game.
I may be wrong, but I also felt as though games were kind of manipulated to usually finish in a close match. For instance, you could be 17 points up and in posssession with 5 mins to go. Then you fumble the ball, they score then kick off to you and you fumble and lose possession and just about hang on. That kind of thing. Maybe it was just my imagination though.
All in all I found it a really good game with a few drawbacks. I would love to see a new version come out but in the meantime this is definitely worth a shot.
