    Update: Where I've Been

    Sorry for not being more responsive. I was waiting to make a huge announcement involving our tournament manager with customizable data points where you can literally make a reactive database for ANY title you wish, but, then the unthinkable happened. In the last 8 weeks, I bought a business and moved to Jacksonville from Tampa to run said business. In addition, my Tecmo Madison partner and best friend (Casey) took his own life. Tecmo has been a bit of a sore spot since and I've pretty much checked out on it since that happened. A lot of you met and got to know Casey. He was a super happy, creative and talented man. He really enjoyed building the new Tecmo Madison, the new responsive database and our esports tournament manager which we were about to roll out. I hope this feeling passes but as of now, every time I look at what we built, I tear up a bit. Going from talking to someone nearly every day to then trying to understand what they did is super, super heavy. If you're a praying man, say prayers for his family and also mine. There is a lot of hurt and confusion going around. As of now, I have zero Tecmo plans in the near future. I am swamped with work but also have a heavy heart. If you are hurting, reach out. You know me. I love all of you and would give you my all and have in many cases. Let this be a lesson to us all and let's not bury anyone else anytime soon.

    This was a very memorable weekend for me. I get greeted at the airport by @mort1237 and @kevincabarello who treated me like royalty. I responded by demanding a Waffle House visit, and my subjects happily obliged. Armed security, drunk women, chefs cooking with cell phones in one hand, and an impending drug deal witnessed by Mort kicked off an amazing weekend. All that was missing was a Hepatitis C infection. We hit the Old North Arcade, where nearly everything is on free play, then went our separate ways as we all had a big day on Saturday. Nice selection of games, and of course I did some damage on the Mortal Kombat machines. At the recommendation of Kevin, we locked down a prepaid ATT hot spot with a built in Ethernet port based on his connection quality off his phone. In 9 hours of streaming Saturday, we didn't drop a single frame. @Jim Socks 13, @Woodshed, Eric Kuhlman, The Retro Sports Gamer, Louis, Mort, and The Ultimate Weapon all made guest appearances on the color mic. It was an absolute riot. The afforementioned Jim Socks and Woodshed opened with their own version of "In the Ware Tonight", which I believe is available on the Retro Sports Gamer Channel on Youtube. It's not to be missed. The setups were a plenty, and Kevin balanced playing, organizing with tenacity. Louis and Mort were a big help setting up early. The staff was friendly, the food was delicious, and the overall event a 10/10 in my book. Way to go Mort for your victory, Joemama winning the Silver bracket, and Kevin for running a kickass event! Here's to next year!

    I want to thank Greg for running an outstanding first tournament. From the space, to the raffle prizes, to the little Tecmo touches that add so much more to the day. It was a lot of work and having to survive a power outage just added more to the day! Also, looking at that f'n trophy! It's hard for me to have an adequate description of all the day's events, but maybe I can at least recap it from my perspective. I'm still in a bit of shock that I survived the day as the last man standing. Especially the way it happened. Here's my best summary of the day. Group Play- First I want to say that I really enjoyed my group. I thought it was fun, and I think it's always fun when everyone in the group wins a game. Also, I think everyone ended up winning 2 games on the day, so double win! Game 1: Rams - 21 vs. Det - 38: Lost to Ed's Lions 38-21. This was a case of a couple of unlucky breaks and complete dominance on Ed's part. He amassed over 400 yards. He ran the ball well with Barry and I gotta say it was one of the best Rodney Peete performances I've seen. I couldn't stop him. I think 38 points is the most I ever gave up in a tourney. At that point, I thought it was going to be a long day. I didn't know it was going to be my only loss. Game 2: Raiders 31 vs. KC 7: Angelo called the matchup and I picked the Raiders, not knowing his playing style. I didn't want to give him Bo in case I couldn't out-tap him or if he was a good runner. It ended up being the right call as the Raiders defense did enough to stop Okoye and Co. early. Game 3: Chargers 21 vs. Min 7: I called the matchup and Andrew picked Minny. Again, not knowing someone's style means you could be putting a good defense into their hands. Luckily, I was up big early by two scores. Andrew adjusted pretty well and I think we exchanged TDs second half. The Bracket- I won my group, but being 2-1, I was a #8 seed. Looking ahead, I knew I would have to face the #1 seed (Erik), but I tried not to think about it. Round of 32: Browns - 14 vs. N.O. - 0 (forfeit): Unfortunately, this game never really got completed. I won the coin toss vs. Bryan and figured I would call a lower tier matchup since he was new to tournaments. In the one and done bracket, I wanted to give myself any advantage I could. Thanks to QB Browns, I was up 14-0 in the second quarter when POW! the power went out. After a 10 minute outage, the power in the place came back on. Bryan unfortunately told me he was leaving and I ended up taking the forfeit win. Round of 16: Raiders - 14 vs. Chi. - 7: Ray and I always seem to face in any tournament we both attend. He called the matchup and I'm guessing it's because he felt like he could run the ball with either team. Having played earlier with the Raiders worked in my favor as I was able to get ahead with the first score. It was a tense fourth quarter, but the Raiders held on. Quarterfinals: Chargers - 17 vs. Den. -14: Erik, the number 1 seed, knocked me out of the New York tournament in the round of 8 last October on a last second play that still rung in my head. That tourney was my best performance in the last two years and to have it slip away in that fashion stung a lot. I like both teams, but stuck with S.D. and the magic of Billy Joe. The Chargers started the game ferociously, breaking out to a 14-0 lead until late in the 2nd quarter. Erik had the ball at half, but he wanted to make sure to be within striking distance. Too much time was left on the clock before the half and the Broncos cut the deficit to 14-7 at halftime. Broncos had the ball and Erik marched down the field methodically and next thing I knew it was tied 14-14. I had the ball in the 4th quarter and after a hard-fought first down, Butts cut inside and fumbled the ball. Broncos recovered in Chargers territory. All I could think was that I couldn't believe I blew a 14-0 lead and was about to lose. Luckily the Tecmo gods were smiling upon me as Erik marched inside the 30 and then Humphrey fumbled the ball! Chargers recovered with about 3 minutes to go. I knew that I couldn't risk turning the ball over again, so I was able to run the clock down and march into FG range. John Carney nailed the kick with less than 10 seconds to go and down went the #1 seed. Another crazy tight contest with Erik as usual. Semifinals: Chiefs - 23, Mia - 21: From what I gather, people think of this as a bait matchup for me, being that I like Dan and the Dolphins. That being said, so does Barletti as I found out. It's another matchup where I don't mind either team but I felt I would have a more balanced attack with KC so I picked them. This was another tight game and I really felt Barletti had the edge, especially early on. He's a good passer and the Dolphins are a top tier passing team so it was hard to stop. With Miami up 14-7 late in the second, I was faced with 4th and 7 in my own territory. I decided to go for it and KC converted the first down. This allowed Lowery to kick a FG before half to make it 14-10. KC scored on their first possession of the second half to take the lead 17-14. There was a bit of a misstep on Miami's part in the 3rd quarter, putting in Scott Mitchell and throwing a bomb to try to go for a homerun ball. KC picked off the pass and helped turn the game in KC's favor. The Chiefs were up 17-14 when they had to settle for a Lowery FG to go up 20-14. On Miami's next drive they moved the ball quickly and Marino caught the bottom receiver (Duper) who broke a tackle and outran my guy for a score to take the lead 21-20. I truly believe that it was a blessing that he scored because I didn't think I could stop the pass at that point. The clock would have ticked down too much and I wouldn't have had enough time for Lowery to do his thing. There was about 3 mins left on the clock when I got the ball and the Chiefs got into FG range pretty quickly. There was under 30 second on the clock when DeBerg spotted "Chicken Alfredo" Roberts wide open over the middle. The ball bounced two pixels in front of Roberts, but if he would have caught it, it would have been a TD. It was a risky play, but I thought to try it because who knows what happens on a FG, especially under pressure. Luckily, Lowery is almost always money, and the Chiefs won this one in the final seconds. Finals: Cowboys - 16, Jets - 13: This was the third time I was playing Shawn in a Tournament Final. Needless to say, I was 0-2 against him in Finals and 0-2 against him in tournaments all-time. In the last NJ Tournament, 4 years ago, Shawn and I faced off in a SD-TB matchup in which Haddix made a clutch INT to seal the deal. I also lost to Shawn two years ago in NYC against Tampa (again) with Minnesota, scoring a measly 3 points. Shawn called the matchup again this time and went Cowboys-Jets. I snatched up the Cowboys and their defense came up big. After squandering an opening possession, the Cowboys kept the Jets out of the endzone on a goalline stand and forced a FG. It was 3-0 Jets in the second when I was able to finally score my first TD against Shawn in four years. The Jets kicked a FG to make it 7-6 at half. I was happy just to have the lead at halftime. While the Jets had the ball to start the 2nd half, the tide turned when O'Brien threw a pick on a called play. Emmitt and the Cowboys then marched down the field and scored to give Dallas a two score lead. In the 4th, with the Jets near midfield and just out of field goal range, they went for it on 4th and 10. With a called play, the Cowboys took over on downs and it seemed all but sealed with under 4 minutes to go. Just then, with 3 minutes left, Aikman threw his first pick. Jets got a quick JJ to bring them inside the 5 and punched it in with 2 minutes to go. Not getting the onside kick, it seemed like the Cowboys had this in the bag. But, on a called play and a remarkably ill-conceived toss across the field, the Jets got the ball back with 23 seconds to go. One final play. I called pass 4 (shotgun). Jets called the other shotgun. Eason drops back... but too far back. The Cowboys D-Line swarms him and sacks him in the endzone for the safety and a Dallas victory. 16-13 final score. gg Shawn Final Comments: It has been 11 years since I last won an in-person tournament. That was the first ever tournament I ran in NYC and the venue closed a few months later. After Erik hosted a tourney in CT the next year in '08, I didn't really think Tecmo was going to be a thing in the Northeast. But slowly the Tecmoers started coming out of the woodwork. Finally winning one again, after finishing second five times, definitely means something to me. While I participate these days more for the camaraderie, I feel happy winning one again. Thank you Greg for a great tournament and thank you to all the Tecmoers for keeping the game alive so that I can continue to have the "Tecmo experience."

    Deviled Greg

    Wayne, NJ - 05/19/18 - The Jersey Cup

    I'm not exactly a wordsmith but I thought I'd give it a try. First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who made it out Saturday. I couldn't ask for a better showing to a first time tournament. Erik, thanks for taking me under your wing and helping this thing run smoothly. With 9 tournaments under your belt yourself, I definitely appreciated all the advice and tips. Not to mention all the equipment, set-up, break down. Hope you were able to enjoy yourself. In the eleventh hour, Ray really came through and did an amazing job with the stream. Top notch. I was able to go back and watch and its phenomenal. Had me cracking up with some of the commentary. Also thanks to everyone else who brought equipment, or helped set-up/break down, anyone who shared a post, etc The day itself started out like the previous 3 days in NJ, a lot of rain. Thankfully it was not too heavy and didn't make unloading the equipment too troublesome. Pool Play went smooth and my initial nervousness about running a tournament for the first time was just subsiding when the power cut out on the whole street! Think Ravens-49ers super bowl. My heart dropped and I immediately thought this tournament was doomed.Thankfully it was right after the first batch of bracket games so we didn't need to replay games once it came back on 20 minutes later. I had a nice win in the Sweet 16 with a last second Butler 50+ FG, tied at 10 with DT bearing down on me for the block. Lost in the Elite Eight to Barletti, 0-3 against him now, just can't seem to beat that guy haha But the man of the hour was Brian. He lost his first Pool Play game to Eddie Z pretty handily, and then did not lose again. Ripped off 7 W's in a row. Had to beat Erik, Barletti, and finally Shawn all in a row to win the Cup. I definitely enjoyed going back and watching those last two games. They were great, tight contests. Its funny the last time there was a tournament in NJ it was the same final with Shawn coming out on top. Couldn't be happier for Brian, the first tournament I ever attended was one of his in 2012 and he was very welcoming and introduced me to this awesome Tecmo community. Its so much more than just the game. Happy I can be a part of it. Oh and did I mention he also won the grand prize in the raffle, the Joe Montana signed poster? Yeah he had a pretty good day! Congrats champ. Your name will be the first to be engraved on the Jersey Cup! Thank you guys for all the compliments, the main thing I want is for all of you to have a great time. Hopefully we can just keep making it better every year. Got some cool ideas for next years tournament brewing already. Hope I see some of you at the other Northeast tournaments this year.

    Congrats to Brian! I think he is probably the most deserving of hosting this with all the years' he has been in the finals and fell a bit short. Also, Greg--you crushed it with hosting your first tournament. Trophy, custom coins and venue were all great! It was good to see some new faces and some familiar ones from years' past. Ray- Great job with the stream! You da man! Erik M. was also extremely helpful as always and brought a lot to the tournament. He does an awesome job with helping out and ensures everything goes smoothly. Good job to Erik as well! I told Brian probably about 3 games before the final it was his day. I predicted Shawn and him to be in the final (again) about four years' ago in NJ they both played in the final with Brian falling short in a SD vs TB match-up, I believe. I was disappointed in my defensive performance on the day. Was pretty rusty and fell short to Okalahoma Bo in a CLE-GB match-up. He played very well. These tournaments get tougher and tougher every time we play, i think the amount of reps we all have versus one another by now is pretty up there. Can't wait for more tournaments throughout the year. See (some of you) in Philly.

    My service provider offered larger disk space for free so obviously I took up this offer. During the transfer somehow my certs because corrupted which meant the web server wouldn't start up. I was able to finally resolve the issue on Saturday morning.

    Oh we're rolling with it. It's something I've liked seeing on Discord in runups to other tourneys, but we want this stuff on the Borg. I'm also choosing to focus on players that will actually play in CFT 2. Tuggle is going to be on @Tick's Bengals, and Rickey Jackson will be playing for @XtraLargent's Raiders. We are now at 56 days away from CFT 2 dropping it's bomb of Tecmo Season Innovation and Unique Experience on the world, and today's guy is my guy. Drafted with the last overall pick in the CFT 2 draft, along with the rest of the best LB crew in the game. The one and only... In Christmas 2004 I was given the gift that keeps on giving. A copy of LT: Over the Edge, Tackling Quarterbacks, Drugs, and a World Beyond Football. Needless to say there is so many fantastic quotes in this book by LT and his coaches, teammates and opposing contemporaries. You can often see @sonofpatbeach reading from the Book of LT at different times at the Madisons over the years on YT. I will be reading from the Book of LT to my opponent before every game this year, just to let em know the guy that is coming for him in our CFT 2 battle. Since today is LT day in the countdown, I'll share one now. This one's a long one and somewhat abbreviated by me. And it's from his Prologue: No Superman Here "Sonuvabitch put a gun to my head. I thought I was dead... My Name is Lawrence Taylor and I'm an addict... and addicts don't care if they have to venture into dangerous hellholes like The Hill if there's a pot of cocaine at the end of the rainbow. ... I pulled over in my Cadillac, and one guy got in my front seat and one guy got in the backseat. I didn't like that, so I said, "Yo, I don't want two guys in my car." But the guy standing outside pulled out some shit, so I bought it. ... The guy in the backseat got out and closed the door. The guy in the front seat made like he was getting out, but then he got back in, turned toward me, and stuck a gun in my face. "Gimme the watch, motherfucker." I said, "Nooooooo problem, bro. Just don't shoot." I was scared. Shit yes. I took my watch off and gave it to him. Little did he know that I had about $10,000 cash in my pocket; I carried a lot of money in those days---you never know when a poker game's going to break out. He put the watch on the seat between us, and then said he wanted my diamond pinkie ring. He didn't ask me to take it off, he just started TUGGing on it. He 'bout tore my finger off trying to get that sonuvabitch off. I was like, "Hey man, I'll get it off myself, okay?" I handed him the ring, and he handed his gun to the guy standing outside the car, and told him to get in. Now I realized they're about to jack me, take my car. The guy with the gun pulled on the back door, but the door was locked----thank God for those annoying safety features on expensive cars--- so his pal in the front seat had to reach over the seat to unlock the door. So now his body's between me and the guy with the gun. I see my opening. My chance. I slammed the Caddy into drive, and stomped on the gas. I banged over the curb, swerving like a crazy man, and the guy sitting next to me was screaming, "Stop, motherfucker! I'm going to kill you!" I was throwing that car from side to side, trying to throw him back and forth so he can't shoot me. We go about two hundred yards before I remember this punk ain't got no gun. He gave it to the other guy right? SO I screeched to a stop and started pounding him in the face with my fists. I wasn't scared now. "Where's my shit?" Bam! "Gimme my shit!" Bam! Bam! Needless to say he was more than happy to give me my watch and ring back. After he handed them over, though, I looked through my back window and saw that the other two guys----the guy with the gun and the dude who was in the backseat---- were running down the street, coming right for us. And there were comin', too, boy. So I yelled at the guy in my passenger seat, "Get out!" But he just sat there moanin' like a bitch, his hands covering his bloody face, so I reached across him, opened the door, and yelled, "Get out!" He still didn't move, so I hit the gas. Meanwhile, his buddies were closing in on us. The front passenger door is still open, so I grab that punk ass by the neck and shove him out of the car. And then I drove home and smoked their crack. " Watch out CFT! To me, winning in Cascadia Fuckin' Tecmo is like crack was to LT... And I get to use LT to try and make it happen. And he IS gonna be flyin' around that tecmo gridiron like a bat out of hell, or like young LT goin' after that fix...

    I guess this forum... I'm still busy but I signed up as some dead money for both the Tecmo and the Tetris Attack the following day (no idea how that hustle is gonna go). If any of you want some T&A practice after the Tecmo, I should be available (although I likely will hit up Valley Forge NP at some point).

    Here goes #Lewis Conference with predicted seeds... See previous post for important playoff and tiebreak and bracket info. #Lewis Conference (with projected seeds) 1. Kansas City Chiefs : Owner : @manYo720 aka madmanyo360 aka manyo aka Blue Luigi - I got one word for the reason the Chiefs are projected to be top seed, and manyo has already got it trending in the tborg and twittersphere... unstoppaBo . Right after Sir Ted laid the Montana Boom on the league, adding Cool Joe to a list of STUD QBs drafted in the first round including Marino and QB Browns, Manyo splooged all over his discord as he typed in the 2 letters signifying his impending dominance of the CFT. BO... The BO BOOM! Not only adding the inimitable Bo Jackson to his CHEEFS roster, but also Marcus Allen, a veritable 2 way threat that will stretch the field when Bo doesn't get the totes. After that amazing 1st pick, it remained to be seen how Manyo would craft a team around Bo, and crafty he was. In round 2, Manyo went Big Swinging Dick Dick all over the CFT landscape, selecting the Oilers DBs. Bo and Dick Dick on the same squad??? Watch out CFT! The craftiness that ensued is sure to incite self doubt in most CHEEF opponents. The Chiefs boast Bubby as the gunslinger, combined with the Steelers WR/TEs, it's not that imposing, but Marcus is out there, and while 25PC to 31REC is gonna rear its ugly head... I predict it will hit here often enough to keep defenses on their heels as they try to account for Bo and his jangles. The sneaky great pick here though, is that Cincy OL, which will keep Bo and Bubby clean enough for them to inflict their pain. And don't forget Eric Green, the largest deep threat in the league at 6'-5" and 274 pounds. To add to the Dick Dick Defense plan, Kansas City has a couple of relatively speedy options at DL and the Ruf and his Portermen including the Tezmanian Devil. Let's get real though, Bo Knows. And Bo Goes. The only thing that can stop this Chiefs offense are the Tecmo Gods. Will they favor Bo with the health he was not afforded in real life? Will they show that PC + REC is just a number when it comes to making the open Bubby strike connect? Tune in July 28 and find out. Bottom Line : Bo Dickley gonna be shouting at the victory confirming Blue Recap Screens "You Can't Judge a Bo Book by Its Cover" and "Hey. Bo Dickley!" followed with "I'm a Man!" as he "Brings it (Home) to Jerome". Watch out #Lewis conference... There's gonna be a reckoning. Best Asset : Bo Bo Bo BO BO BO BO BO BO! OFFSET BO with CINCY ROAD GRADERS!!!! Worst Liability: Depth, Drops and Injuries. Will Bo stay away from the injury bug. Will Bubby be a Blister in the Sun rather than a Brister on the Run? Is Doink going to be the CHEEF curse word of the CFT 2 season? 2. Los Angeles Raiders : Owner : @XtraLargent aka Donkey Tales aka Donkey Dee - The Raiders are looking to improve upon their 3rd place finish in the inaugural season of CFT, and this squad looks like it will give Donkey Dee a great shot at it. While the Raiders started their CFT 2 draft with Kenny O with a little Eason on the side, the real splash came all the way in the 4th round with another epic Splooge Selection, as he typed in the pick of the San Fran WRs. O'Brien to Jerry, John and Brent is gonna suck for a lot of CFT opponents in season 2. To top that off, the defense is legit. With tons of versatility which can be crucial in the CFT crucible, the Raiders boast the likes of Reggie White, The Dome Patrol, and Eddie Friggin Anderson. Speed and power reign supreme here. The Raiders DBs might lack in INT rating, but Eddie's 50 INT along with his speed and hitting is gonna be a terror, while Reggie, Rickey, Vaughan, Pat and Sam are all throwing their bodies around causing a genuine ruckus for opposing offenses. XL has got the type of team that will serve his skills well, and even the MIA RBs drafted could provide some conditions boosts with the inevitable love that comes in a full season with three different 38ms RBs. Watch out if Tony Paige goes into eGGcellent! There's a lot of popcorn to be had in the defenses in this league. Bottom Line: XtraLargent is gonna continue his seasonal improvement with this squad. After a stellar season 1, the Raiders with this lineup are looking at battling the Chiefs for the top seed in the #Lewis conference. Best Asset: Jerry is so Very Worst Liability : The running game is meh. Conditions can change that. Be advised.... 3. Cincinnati Bengals : Owner : @Tick aka White Tick - Tecmo fortunes were hard to come by for the Bengals in CFT's inaugural non zero season 1. After winning season 0, the Bengals employed the multitalented and multifaceted Johnny Johnson as well as Joey Browner. Unfortunately for the Cincinnati denizens and Tick himself, he also employed BJ Tolliver. Tolliver was able to throw 10 TDs, but also had 13 interceptions (BJ does often suck tecmo dick) and the tecmo luck on top of that just screwed the Bengals season 1 chances. It is a new season however, and with it, Tick has a nicely balanced team that will have a chance to compete for that coveted bye in the playoff bracket. Steve DeBerg leads the charge with Andre Reed and James Lofton his primary targets. Mike Rozier adds another weapon to the arsenal on the ground. And paving the way for that offense is the best OL that CFT Cap money could buy... or draft? The MIA OL. The anti sieve. On defense, Tick again will employ Louis Oliver and Jarvis Williams. Charles Mann will do some damage up front and give Tick a viable option to man up a DL if needed. But the secret sauce that makes all of this work for this team, taking it from nicely constructed to finely constructed, is one LB Jessie Tuggle. The TUGGLE is REAL FOLKS! The Legend of Jessie Tuggle in CFT is just beginning to grow, but already Tuggle is a sure fire CFT Hall of Famer. And the perfect kick to add to the whole mish mosh of ingredients? The one that will tip the Tecmo Gods assistance in their favor???... The Kicker and Punter squad that was created in Cincy. Not Avail. There's got to be some magic that is derived from that direct offering to the tecmo gods, which will bless us all with an homage to those battles amidst the CFT season 0 where full squads of Not Avail players battled it out in epic fashion. Bottom Line: The Bengals will be looking to bounce back from a dreadful season 1, including an epic playoff loss in OT to the Seahawks (in which the Bengals actually benefitted from @DT. botching up the double elim bracket... more on that later). A Balanced Bengals squad looks likely to battle for a bye in the 1st round of the playoffs. Best Assets: Jessie Tuggle and Not Avails Worst Liability: Is there one? 4. Phoenix Cardinals : Owner @~Tailback King~ aka Rudi! aka Donkey Dum aka Da Rida aka Bringer of Portland Heat - The one and only Rudy TBK will be joining the CFT for the first time in Season 2. And of course, he's bringing along his Johnny. Johnny Johnson that is. The man has no limits on what he can do on the tecmo gridiron. He can run. He can pass. He can decoy! And no one gets the rest of his teammates fired up on the tecmo sidelines like JJ as well (just another undocumented, until now, Hidden Stat of Johnny). Now TBK gets to showcase Johnny J's skills with a COMPLETE SQUAD AROUND HIM. Let's take out the PHX OL and throw in, um... THE HOGS! Let's get the Marky Mark brothers, Clayton and Duper, in to replace Roy Green and Ernie MuthaPhukka Jones. Let's get Jim Jensen in there to replace RiGGy Proehl with more speed and power to go with that sweet sweet 69 REC. Oh and let's roll out the LVP, Troy FRIGGIN ACHEMAN in there for Rosey the Givether. He's still got his Lonnie. He's still got his Timmy MAC! He even got the Iconic Jacob Green and Johnny's not as well known brother Mike holding the 2nd level down at LB3. THE WORLD IS ABOUT TO WITNESS WHAT JOHNNY CAN REALLY DO IN THE HANDS OF RUDY THE TAILBACK KING! Unfortunately, we have yet to see Rudy display elite level passing skills. Is it because of the PHX OL and QBs? Or is it Rudy. Either way, I'm reserving the right to shoot the Cardinals higher up this list until we see Rudy's passing skills equal Johnny Johnson's Tecmo Skillz. Bottom Line: Will Da Rida unleash the TRUE POWER of one JOHNNY JOHNSON for all the world to behold? Leading to CFT dominance and the coveted first PNW TITLE of any non consolation kind for TBK? Either way, the Donkey Bowl, Cards vs Raiders has GOT to be must see and hear TV. Best Asset: Johnny Johnny Johnny Johnny and Johnny. And all his stats, hidden and otherwise. Worst Liability: TBK passing skillz... Will he prove me wrong? I don't doubt he can... but WILL HE? 5. Dallas Cowboys : Owner : kamphuna8 aka turbohuna4eva! aka kamp da TRAMP - Dallas is looking for a repeat of the MaJJik that was season 1, but with the MaJJik gone, and Hugh Millen Nation in its place, this season looks to be a bit of a grind. The Cowboys saved their splooge for the Mr. Irrelevant pick, in which there was some premature e-draft speculation, as a couple of CFT comrades were informed before the actual pick was made that yes indeed, the services of the NY Giants Linebacker Wrecking Crew would be wearing CFT Cowboy Blue for season 2. LT is gonna be a monster, let's face it. He will threaten every XP and FG kick. He will get some sneaky "I didn't know he was there" sacks as the qb will be looking downfield and then all of a sudden you hear the whistle and LT is standing over your prone quarterback, lifting the leg in that internationally known dog relief pose... The rest of the LB crew are forces in their own right. Holding down the middle dives is Carl Banks. Bringing extra heat from the LB2 spot is Pepper Johnson. And the not so secrete weapon at LB3, we have 63 Reasons to believe that Gary can make a difference in affecting the opposing passing games. Those guys are gonna join forces with the baddest DL in the land, with Howie Long, Greg Townsend and Bob Golic. That front 7 is gonna present some problems for some teams in the CFT in season 2. Unfortunately, many of the teams that you see above Dallas on the projected finish have the kryptonite needed to alter the potential disruptive forces of the front 7... a STUD OL. On the Back end, the speedy yet butterfingered corner Nate Odomes can fly around the airways, and both safeties Mark "Twiggy" Kelso and Kirby Jackson have some wheels and some hands, but not a whole lot of either. On offense, the Cowboys are going to start Hugh Millen over Chris Miller (Dawgs > Ducks always and forever) and then play the conditions. There is not a whole lot of innate speed for Dallas on offense, with Dalton Hilliard being the only player above 44ms in average. But the Cowboys have four other players with 44ms in average including JJ NovaCCek and the PL88MAKER, with a 38ms KMart and a 94HP Ironhead to add to the arsenal. Conditions and favor curried by the tecmo gods will play a large role in how successful this Cowboys offense can be. Bottom Line: The best front 7 that can possibly be assembled will still need the mediocre secondary and offense to play above their stats (or curry favor from the tecmo gods) in order to repeat, which is a tall order. One should never "expect" love from the tecmo deities. I do not. Definitely a FUN team for me to play with, but perhaps not the best constructed team as offense >>> defense when it comes to what you need in tecmo. Heavy in defense and Special teams will only get you so far when you don't have that offensive Speed... Best Asset: LT LT LT LT LT LT LT Worst Liability: Ho hum secondary and offense. 6. Atlanta Falcons : Owner : @DT. aka DT From BTown land of the Bremelos - You might be surprised to see the top 2 finishers in CFT season 1 projected to battle for the last 2 playoff spots in their respective conferences. Well, I am a bit too, but after looking over the rosters, and actually getting to play vs DT with his team live a bit, I think both our teams will struggle to make that 5th seed, the last seed to make the bracket without needing a play in game. DT, like me, went for love over cold hard tecmo steely intelligence. As I got some of my favorite players on my roster, DT has a lot of Seattle love on his squad too, and that might not necessarily be a great thing. Let's start off with the QB position. Mudbone! Dave Krieg, and Kelly Stouffer (pronounced like offer) are the QBs for Atlanta CFT 2. A healthy running attack in the SF RBs including Roger Craig, a couple of 44ms backups and Tommy Rathman are gonna cause some problems for teams. Krieg has Stephone Paige to loft bombs to as well. While there's potential for damage to be done, that's not necessarily an offense that is going to be prolific. You might see Roger Craig line up out wide. Or perhaps one of the 44ms backup RBs. On D, the Falcons have a stout DL featuring Michael Carter and Pierce Holt, as well as a HUGE disruptive force in Greg Lloyd, who not only will help on D, but also on special teams blocking some kicks. On the back end, more Seahawk love, in the form of Eugene, Nesby and company. Not necessarily a defense that scares you, especially some of these high end PC to REC combos we got. Thus I predict the struggles of this CFT 1 runner up. Bottom Line: This team will go as far as Mudbone to Stephone Paige will take them. Season 2 will be a grind. Season 1 started as a grind then finished with a major playoff push for Atlanta. DT would be fortunate if the same thing happened in season 2. Best Asset: Mudbone... Krieg's 69 PC can make even the ugliest starts to drives pay off in the end. Worst Liability: Mudbone... Krieg's combination of 25PS to 69PC will have balls actually landing on the receiver instead of being off and causing the JJ mechanics to initiate. With the 25ps, that will allow a lot of defenders to be there with the receivers when the moonballs finally land. 7. San Diego Chargers : Owner : @Polish Rifle - Polish Rifle is a tecmo vet who dabbled for a few seasons in HSTL and the CFT is lucky and glad to have him join in and participate with us. The Chargers selected QB Browns first overall. The weapons the Rifleman gave to Bernie K include the other Dick Dick, Richard Johnson the slow, as well as Robert Clark. To keep teams from picking pass all the time, Polish Rifle can play conditions with Blair Thomas and Johnny Hector. This team can move the ball, but often times it will be a grind. The offense is slightly better than Cleveland's OG Rom offense with a bit more speed at RB and more speed and rec at WR. The OL is top notch however, as the KC OL was selected to keep QB Browns and company clean. On D, I predict some Bad Things man... Bad Things... coming from the DL in the form of BRUUUUUCE Smith. The second level of LBs is a standout group as well, with Charles Haley able to threaten the dive plays from LB4 and the first Romo, Bill Romanowski adding some contain value to the run and kick block value to special teams. Matt Millen could also play a role in disrupting the opposing offenses, especially if his conditions remain above average for any extended period of time. Then there is the secondary. At the end of the draft, it became clear the Chargers would be hiring the likes of the worst secondary in the game. Those Indy DBs... Mike Prior is their best guy at DB3, with his 31rp and 38ms, 44 hp and 44int, that's not anything to get excited about. the other 3 DBs are worse... I think there's going to be some real struggles here, but QB Browns in Polish Rifle's hands should keep things interesting. Bottom Line : Like the Falcons, the Chargers will go as far as their QBs ability to shine will take them. QB Browns to Robert Clark can be deadly, but there's not a lot of speed on this offense. Best Asset: QB Browns Worst Liability: DBs from OG ROM Colts

    Final Divisional Capsule Preview Mount Baker Division 1. Dallas Cowboys : Owner : kamphuna8 aka turbohuna4eva! - Few teams run the football like the Cowboys. Running backs Dalton Hilliard and Reuben Mayes and burly fullback Craig "Ironhead" Heyward are hard-nosed ball carriers that keep the first down markers moving. Michael Irvin is the deep threat, while Kelvin Martin is the possession receiver. Tight end Jay Novacek is one of the best pass-catching tight ends in the league. Greg Townsend, Howie Long, and Bob Golic compose one of the most formidable defensive lines in the CFT. The Cowboys have arguably the best linebackers in the league in Lawrence Taylor, Carl Banks, Pepper Johnson, and Gary Reasons. 2. Kansas City Chiefs : Owner : manyo aka madmanyo720 aka madmanyo360 aka Blue Luigi - The Chiefs have a lot of confidence in their gutsy strong-armed quarterback Bubby Brister. At 6-5, 274 pounds, tight end Eric Green is the largest deep threat in the league. Regardless of who's playing quarterback, the Chiefs' offense will move the football. The running and receiving skills of Bo Jackson, Marcus Allen, and Steve Smith keep opposing defenses off balance. Burt Grossman and Lee Williams do a fine job of pressuring the quarterback. Defensive lineman Cortez Kennedy is excellent against the run and the pass. Linebackers Rufus Porter and Dave Wyman make good reads and always find the ball. Strong safety Bubba McDowell leads K.C.'s "Air Patrol" secondary. 3. Phoenix Cardinals : Owner : ~ Tailback King ~ aka The Rida! - Quarterback Troy Aikman is the cornerstone of an explosive young offense and has top receivers Mark Clayton and Mark Duper and tight end Ferrell Edmunds. Running backs Johnny Johnson and Anthony Thompson make up one of the finest young backfields in the league. Defensive linemen Tony Woods, Jacob Green, and Joe Nash are excellent against the run and the pass. Linebackers Clay Matthews and Mike Johnson are good at stopping both the run and the pass. Strong safety Tim McDonald hits like a linebacker and covers receivers like a cornerback. 4. San Diego Chargers : Owner : Polish Rifle - The developing Blair Thomas and rejuvenated Freeman McNeil propel the Jets' offense. Wide receiver Robert Clark will catch anything he gets his hands on. Defensive End Bruce Smith is a dominating presence who directly affects opposing offensive game plans. Charles Haley is a fearsome pass rusher who will line up at defensive end or linebacker.
