Tony Dungy is surprisingly capable of making fun of the Patriots


The Dunge sat down for an interview with Gametap to discuss NFL Head Coach '09, a new coaching simulation game from EA Sports. Dungy graces the cover.

Toward the end of the interview, the Gametap guy asked Dungy about any "cheat codes" (secret passwords or button combinations designed to make the game easier or give a player an advantage) available in the game. Dungy replied with an awesomeness I did not know he had:

GameTap: Are there going to be any cheat codes in the game where I can spy on my opponents?

Tony Dungy: [laughs] I don't know about any cheat codes. They say that's really a big secret around here, it's like Spygate. I don't know if they put that in there or not or what the penalty would be if you entered any cheat codes, but we'll probably only let New England have cheat codes.


Not bad, coach. I didn't know you had it in you.

Unfortunately, that quote will likely be the most exciting thing about NFL Head Coach '09. I made the mistake of purchasing the '08 version, and in retrospect, the time I spent playing that game would have been more enjoyable spent playing nude Twister with a giant jellyfish.

Big thanks: Big Lead
