    This a matchup spreadsheet that attempts to provide a rating and matchup analysis for any two teams chose EXCEL SHEET: team_tiers_OG_3.xlsx Google Sheets: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1w0sntWyYUWOZ0xVncnGATONP57lnqFUZuIhDgYoh2Z8/edit#gid=626874606 OFFENSE QB RUN = Rating given based on QB's max speed. Fast QB's are tough to stop without a LB to help spy. They can often grind out first downs as you are forced to choose between going after the QB or leaving a man open. RUN = Rating given based on RB's max speed. Special exception given to Okoye's 94HP which makes him as dangerous as 63MS player vs weak HP secondaries. PASS = Rating given to teams passing game QB + WRS *************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** DEFENSE F5Pop = Bonus pts given if the DL HP vs Ol HP differential is enough for the DL to break through the OL instantly making running and passing tougher. Double points if it comes from the interior. LB = Grade given to entire unit based on all ratings but HP DB = Grade given to entire unit based on all ratings but HP *************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** SPECIAL JJ Mismatch = If one team has a player whose int rating is at least 3 skill notches (example 69 int vs 50 pc) they will have a 50% chance of jumping to intercept the pass if they are in the right place. If its 4 notches or greater they will have a 100% chance of jumping to intercept the pass if they are in the right place. 1 bonus pt given for a 3 notch difference. 2 Bonus pts given for a 4 or more notch difference. 94 HP Blocker = Putting a 94 HP blocker at TE vs a 44HP or less bottom LB (50 HP differential) can help greatly as on one of the best runs in the game(Run 3 R&S sweep down) the LB will get popped giving you an extra blocker in the way allowing you to get some extra yards. 1 pt given for this mismatch. *************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** OTHER LB4 = Having a good player at this position helps defeat a number of runs fairly easily by diving right after the snap at the RB or by grappling the blocker immediately and then outtapping the RB. 1 pt given for a good player here. RCB/FS = These are good positions to have for stopping run plays and not being in the way of power running plays to the bottom. 1 pt given for a good player here. The can also provide coverage vs the best WR's as the best WR is often put at the top of the screen. DL use = This has a number of conditional checks but if a team has no LBs and/or they are playing a bad QB selecting a DL can be useful to help maximize your coverage. Especially if you know a pass is coming (aka shotgun). Especially useful vs the redgun and weak QB's if you have no LB's to use. DB vs run = in somewhat opposite fashion a penalty is given if your best DB is at bottom CB or SS or if your only good player is at CB as a good run game can really neutralize the effectiveness of using that player by running all of their runs to the bottom. Penalty ranges from -1 to -2 depending on the strength of the run game of the team faced. Special exception in CIN vs DET matchup with Fulcher being able to popcorn everyone on DET. KR = 1 pt given to the return game of PIT and 2 to NO since they can put a 94HP returner there. *************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** OFF= Off total score DEF= DEF total score OTH = other total score SP= special total score. *************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** SPECIAL INFORMATION Coverage catch tables of best qb and best wr vs (19int lb,best db and worst Db have been provided so you can see how much of a mismatch you are at there). These percentages only apply when the WR doesn't jump or dive and there is only one defender covering. *****A defender may appear to be in coverage but if the game doesn't determine him to be in on the play when the pass is 1/4 of the way he will have no effect on the outcome of the pass***** OL vs front 5 HP matchup ***************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

    Would putting it in a line graph by beneficial? It may look cool showing the peaks and valleys. For instance seeing the SEA Peak at QB and GB DB Valley may be a good matchup to exploit?

    Some thoughts on the game last night: 1: So it turns out that Bradford can absolutely rifle the ball downfield if he actually has time to throw. 2: The offensive line looks to be improved from "Worse than the Seahawks" to "Somewhere in the bottom half of the NFL". I'll ****ing take it. 3: Dalvin Cook looked good. He doesn't appear to be quite as fast as McKinnon, but he has good vision and looks slippery. 4: **** Drew Brees. 5: **** a suddenly obese Sean Payton. 6: I wanted to mute the TV after listening to Gruden after 5 minutes. He makes every player sound like the greatest thing since sliced bread. I thought Alvin Kamara was dope at UT, but he's DEFINITELY NOT the next Marshall Faulk. 7: Thanks Sean Payton fo having some seriously misplaced faith in your defense, and for using your timeouts in the final two minutes of the first half. That really helped out on the final drive. 8: AD should just retire. 9: I'm hoping that the Viking defense can sustain their production over the entire season and be the #1 rated defense they should be. 10: Sam Bradford for MVP. Seriously though, the gap in talent between Bridgewater and Bradford is enormous. Bradford has a bazooka arm that Bridgewater doesn't have, and Bridgewater probably won't have his decent mobility after his injury either. Bradford can just make some throws that Bridgewater never will be able to.

    Seattle can have da hardest hitting defense in da league and a quarterback that is actually a magician, but none of that's going to matter if their line "blocks" like this:

    Yeah add a plus 1 for 69 hp db and forget ball control. No way it's worth a whole point when a notch of ms is a point

    Week 4, juiced plus version. Everything going wrong all game. Computer runs back a turnover td on the last play of first half. They keep picking my play, I keep running into blockers on defense I usually don't. One of those games the COM seems to get all the breaks. Down 33-21 with 3 and change left. Drive for a td, get the inside kick. Drive down and score again with a minute to go, up 35-33. One last kickoff, minute to go. Been pinning them on the five all game. Of course he runs the kick back to my 30 with time for one last play. I've blocked the last 2 kicks. I get through, but nope, FG through. I lose 36-35, dropping to 3-1. The agony.

    16 years ago... Can we talk?

    I was actually at my mother's memorial service when the planes hit. My brother and I were walking through a mall and all the tv's were showing the video of the towers... I honestly thought it was a movie or something. When someone explained what had happened all of the kids (my two sisters and my brother and I) were on the phone. Having lost my mother so recently, the world was going insane... I still think something snapped that day... the world changed... As a south african who lived through a small portion of the apartheid era, I remember as a child all the bomb drills and bomb scares we went through. Now the whole world is like that. Paranoia , anger and fear. I pray for those who lost loved ones in the attacks. My family and I suffered tremendously with the loss of one member, to imagine that pain multiplied thousands of times over, is almost unimaginable.

    (SNES) TSB3 2017 SB LII

    Dang Fernando, the JUICED version is wicked. I'm a several years long lurker around here but created an account to thank you for your ongoing work with TSB3. It's my fav. I can't hardly muster ~50 Rushing yards a game, nor can the CPU. I haven't used the SKP feature yet to see about your mentioning of tweaking the SIM ratings. What I do is set everything to COM (except for my team or teams [but always set to SKP for the initial Trading and Free Agent signing period to see what the game concocts] ) and I use the fast-forward key on ZSNES. I keep getting blitzed prolifically and my CPU opponent always seems to pull off a ridiculous 3rd and 14 conversion by breaking 17 tackles. I use the TSB3m tool to play with the FA points. Please reply when you have time because there are some strategic and technical aspects I'd like to pick your brain on. Thanks immensely for creating content bro!

    Mina Kimes is one of the few good writers left at ESPN (along with Zach Lowe). While a lot of "journalists" stoop to writing tabloid gossip pieces based off of tweets and 5 second sound-bites, she conducts interviews with the athletes and writes worthwhile articles. This one on Aaron Rodgers is excellent: http://www.espn.com/espn/feature/story/_/page/enterpriseRodgers/green-bay-packers-qb-aaron-rodgers-unmasked-searching

    Many of you weren't around back in our hype glory (hole) daze. Let's call it S26-S31. Randi was commissioner and he was a shit dictator. If we reference him (now) too many times, like Candyman, he'll post something lame and down rep us, and I'll make fun of him for sucking so much. He was terrible, so one day a hero named Manyo rose up from the whiskey soaked bushes and confiscated the league. Ending the Fairfield hierarchy and sending all the fairy queens back to a far away unknown land, like Idaho. @madmanyo360 was a fair and adored leader, along with his merry helpers and tribune of concubines we ruled the Tecmo World, literally. Manyo allowed the Fairfieldans to stay, but they were watched closely. We often suspected @joeygats of sending undocumented carrier pigeons to Fairfieldia. Eventually, we broke him and he joined the regime. We had a fearless leader, like El Guapo, to allocate the people. A traitorous Luitenant in myself for overseeing operations, @SirTed a coveted hype man, a draft czar named @moulds33 RIP, @modeezie would build our land and ROMs, while @Coconuts would run our numbers. @kamphuna8 would schedule meetings and games and @segathonsov was the only owner in the land capable of interpreting El Commandante's wishes - he would interpret the rule book. @Ryan11p would run our Farm League because the wait list grew to over a dozen hungry (but useless) peasant souls. We even had a phucking Turbo Task Force comprised of Coconuts and Gats. Gats was in charge of "you have to think like a cheat, to catch one." The days were long and grueling, but rewarding. But all good things must come to an end. Somewhere mid S27, I think... Lt. Diaz made the mistake in supporting the Fairfielden's musical aspirations. I wanted to hype the league more, but El Commandante took this as a personal insult after over-throwing the old dicktator he banished (forever?) into the wilderness. Never to be heard from again... until he decided to come back and win an HSTL title running the offset formation in every game. The Lo-White Offense shall live in infamy. I'll link some good reads in the threads if you guys interact with this drivel, btw. We had no leader. I was forced to step up. In S28 we decided to take on the greatest Tecmo task ever, and did an individual draft. That's right folks, we drafted every single player on the rom individually. All 840 of them, even Don Warren. I won S28, as commish. It helps drafting HP and aligning shit to your favour. It's one of the perks to compensate for the shitty pay. Chino Pino was promoted from the low ranks into LT and did a fine job until hookers and blow reaped his Tecmo soul, forever. I have sent a many carrier pigeons his way to little to no avail. RIP The peak of HSTL was when the scheming sucka Randi himself didn't finish one of his games on time, and received his 2nd demerit dropping him from 2nd tier to 3rd, and having no chance at Marino. He threatened to quit, he cried, he threatened to quit, he cried more. I told him to fuck off, he cried, fuck off, cried, threatened to quit, cried, fuck off and then he actually quit. I take deep solace is reaping his tiny little soul. If you're keeping track I was responsible for running off both of my commish predecessors. They can't handle the heat. It happens, being commish will break you. It's like working 3rd shift, not every man is made for it. We were still flying high with the epic return of @bruddog and whether actively playing or not has always provided with much appreciated and needed analysis and insight. He's the fucking man. Fuck with Bru, I'll kill you IRL. Yes, that's a threat. Feel free to use this thread for evidence. To be continued....
