Gamespot and IGN both have new previews up (thanks, PastaPadre). Here's the Gamespot Preview, and here are four new videos at IGN.

Here's an excerpt from the Gamespot preview:
The first season mode variety is aptly called Season mode, and it will let you play any of the game's more than 60 teams in an 8-, 16-, or 32-team league. You can play multiple seasons in a row, and there will be college player scouting in between seasons and a team draft before the start of the season (with the number of draft rounds dependent on the size of the league).

[second season mode]Road to Backbreaker starts you off in an eight-team league, and in a nod to Natural Motion's European roots, the mode will feature a promotion and relegation system. Should you end up in the top three of your league at the end of the season, you'll be promoted to the next league up (either a 16- or 32-team field). Winning a league's championship bowl game will also unlock special stadiums that you can use online (bringing the total number of stadiums in the game to 13). Failure to end up in the top three will mean dreaded relegation to the next lower tier and a long road back to promotion during the next season.
Promotion/relegation is an outstanding inclusion. The game looks terrific in the videos, with bright colors and outstanding animation. I want more camera angle options, but this is still a day one purchase for me.
