The first sign of the Apocolypse is upon us - Pittsburgh Steelers coach Sgt. Slaughter...er...I mean Bill Cowher is now a model. Thankfully, he's keeping all of his clothes on.
On Wednesday, EA Sports announced that the Super Bowl winning coach will be the cover boy for the new football game "NFL Head Coach" to be released June 20th.
I'm not sure which sounds worse, a game based on coaching or looking at one of the most hideous coaches in the NFL every time I go to put my game disc in.
Lets see... a game where your primary duties include pacing a sideline, yelling (and in Cowhers case, spitting while yelling), and watching film for 12 hours a day while ignoring your wife and kids for personal glory. I know the NFL is the country's number one sport but can a game based on being a head coach really be that enthralling? What's next, "NHL Coach"? "NBA Coach", "Little League T-Ball Coach"?
I have some better ideas. There's definetely a market for a "Crazy Tennis Dad" or "Obsessive Compulsive Figure Skating Mom" so why not make those as well.
To be honest, I'm sure this game will be alot better than I think. Its made by EA and those guys know what they're doing. At least I hope they do this time.
