Here's the link...
These are the parts of the ESPN interview that caught my eye as they answered a lot of our questions in other threads...

Because of the NFL licensing with EA, we couldn't use any of the teams or players, so they're all different. All the team and player names are different. But the one thing we did do is to allow all the team and player names to be editable by the player. So if you want to go back and play as one of those old NFL teams, feel free to. It just depends how much you want to go back and micromanage. All of the original stats are there, so your favorite players are in there, and we kept the teams in the same city location, so you should be able to find and figure out where your old favorites are pretty quickly.
We have a full single-player season. You can play through three seasons, which is basically what would be the 1991, 1992, and 1993 seasons, but we just call it season 1, 2, and 3 in the game. We also have an online component. Unfortunately, we just didn't have the time or resources available to make it a full tournament system online , but I think that will probably come in the next iteration. In this one, you're playing preseason against opponents head-to-head. It's still a nice component that has never been had on the console for this game.
They're the old playbooks.
I still want to know if you can save and swap rosters?!
