    We all know Aaron Rodgers is amazing. He is the true g.o.a.t, with T Brade being a moderately close second. That said, there is still plenty of precedence for the Packers to make a run. 12 reasons Green Majik believes the Packers' season is not over without number 12: 1) I'm typing this at a coffee shop, and Phil Collin's "In the Air Tonight" is playing on coffee shop fm. Could an amazing Rodgerless run be "In the Ware Tonight" for the Pack? 2) I'm a homer (apparently with a huge Patriots complex, like most Packer fans), so I believe the Pack can always find a way to win. 3) The Packers lost a winnable game last week against the Vikings, whose defense was beastly against Brett Hundley. With a week to game plan, Hundley and coach McCarthy will be ready for the Vikes next time at Lambeau. 4) This is back-up QB Hundley's third year in Mike McCarthy's offense. He was built for this moment -- not to take over the franchise, but to carry the team if Rodgers went down. 5) Crissakes, back-up QB Hundley's first name is "Brett." 6) As several of you have mentioned in this forum, this has been a topsy-turvy year in the NFL already. The only thing that seems definite is that the Chiefs are fierce, #Okoye. Would the Packers making a deep run really be out of the norm for this crazy season, in which the BILLS could legitimately break their 17-year playoff drought? 7) The Packers are 4-2 and no one looks like they want to run away with the NFC north, which is precisely what the Packers were looking to do before Rodgers went down. It's a wide open race, fellas. Once you're in the playoffs, it's a brand new season. Especially if they get the division and that home playoff game, they could make a deep run. For now, the Packers WR core is healthy in Adams, Cobb and ~Nelson. There are points to be scored. 9) Coach McCarthy's 2016 campaign -- last year the Pack ripped off ten straight wins to the NFC championship. A LOT of that had to do with Rodgers' greatness, but credit is also due to McCarthy and other coaches for helping the team bounce back from that 4-6 deficit. 10) Packers 2013 campaign - The Packers win the division despite needing four quarterbacks to do it. Rodgers gets hurt in a week 10 match-up vs. the Bears early in the game. Their back-up, Seneca Wallace, is injured the next game. After their third stringer Scott Tolzein is benched mid-game in wk 12, Matt Flynn (who started the season on the Raiders) keeps the season alive so Rodgers can steal the division from the Bears in wk 17. 11) Guys named Kaepernick, Brady, Hostetler -- supported by that ferocious Niners defense, in week 12 of 2012 Harbaugh goes with his back-up QB even with Alex Smith healthy. Kaep almost wins the Super Bowl. Brett Hundley is not Tom Brady, but T Brade, like Kaep, was promoted over the natural starter Drew Bledsoe in week 11 in 2001. And won the Super Bowl. You know who else won the Super Bowl: Tecmo Giants natural back-up Jeff Hostetler. Supported by that ferocious 1990 Giants defense, Host helped lead the Giants to Super Bowl XXV. 12) A guy named Flynn, again, in 2011 -- Sitting at 14-1 with the no. 1 seed clinched, the Packers rest Rodgers and several key starters in week 17 against the Lions. The Lions have the #5 seed to gain -- meaning they would be at the 9-7 Giants in the playoffs instead of the 13-3 Saints. Stafford played an incredible game, but back-up Flynn passes for 480 yd and 6 TD, and made hay in the offseason because of it. Hundley wants to make hay, too, and will be motivated to put good film for the league to see.

    Looking forward to another fun NYC Tourney. I'm enjoying retirement, and like last year, will be focused only on organizing and keeping things flowing day-of. Like last year, we'll throw a link out that morning for people to view our tracking/score sheet. That means live, constant, fast score updates for all those following along or checking in remotely. I'll also pause tweeting anti-Trump stuff that day and replace it with observations and silly shit from around the tourney.

    I hear A LOT of talk about Adrian Peterson and his BIGGG comeback. Yes, he's a beast, yes, he's a bad a$$, yes, he's still "one of the" best backs in the league,......BUT.......I want people to really pay attention Sunday morning at around 10:00am when he goes up against "THE BEST" Tailback, if not the best player in the league... {Todd Gurley}. He's gonna single handedly disassemble the PHX defense and put up major PTPN (Peterson Torch Passing Numbers) on his very challenging seemingly everlasting vision quest to becoming the 2017 NFL M.V.P.....................oh it's true...........IT'S DAMN TRUE!!!!!!!!!! (Frodo Baggins with Todd Gurley's head insert here)

    How to make a positive impact vs. how to be perceived as a whiny bitch. I was content with dropping the "anthem protest" conversation, but felt the need to share some news out of the NHL this week. Yeah, the NHL... get over it. My views on the NFL anthem protesters are that, despite the aim to raise awareness for their cause, they are doing nothing more than dividing the nation even further. Sports fans who tune into the games as an escape from their day-to-day are being driven away by the constant attention. Below you have two examples of NHL players (PK Subban and JT Brown) who, instead of just protesting and making zero progress on the issue, are making a positive impact by getting involved in their communities and pushing for awareness/change. Regardless of where you stand on the issue, this is respectable. Below you can read the article on Subban's cause and Brown's recent twitter post that outlines his plan. For the record, Subban never knelt for the anthem and Brown raised his first for the anthem for a total of 1 game. Subban: https://www.nhl.com/predators/news/subban-aims-to-set-positive-tone-in-community-with-blueline-buddies/c-291898476 So the NFL has been protesting for almost a year, or over a year, I lost track and don't really care to look it up... and NOTHING has been accomplished. In fact, they are still forced to talk about it like clowns (literally 1 hour ago). Props to the NHL for doing it right. Not only did Subban and Brown (and I'm sure others to follow) make an immediate positive impact, but they did it without major controversy and driving the sports fan away.

    I've listened to some of your guys feedback and the "cleaner" part of the stream is back up. The beginning part of the stream is down and needs some heavy video editing for obvious reasons. Looking back on it, I should of gave some initial indication about experimenting with my buddy Chris on stream as a commentator as my channel does not usually contain content with heavy cursing. There is still some random outbursts from people on the later part of this stream, but it's now listed as NSFW for that reason. This is most likely the first time someone can say that when @ImFlo hopped on the stream as opposed to the previous commentator that it was like changing the channel from HBO to PBS.

    The group i was in went like this. I played an horrible game vs @ImFlo lost 5-17 Phi over Chi. I threw out the film and pretented that never happened. Also qb eagles to gave up another safety but it was to little to late. Reg beat Flo in a close game . Flo's last minute Jj was short Tb vs ???. . @mort1237 beat @regulator088 in a wild shootout. Coulda went either way. Mort called Right and a and hit some Jj's . Kc over another Tier 2 team . Flo beat mort not sure how and what teams played. I lost in Ot vs Reg 27 to 21 Cle over Gb . Typical cle/gb shootout. Had an cross Directional pass to Fontenet in Good timed perfect but he dropped it. Went for it on 4th down cuz i never punt from my own 2o. Rest is history. I beat mort Pitt over Jets 31 to 6. Drove down scored then he fumbled on Kr as the steelers special teams helped out in this won. Having an 14 lead with Pitt defense is tough to comeback from. Even mort fumbles on kick returns.lol. So we learned that anyone can beat anyone and Flo is ptetty good on Mic. Flo and Reg were doing some commentary on the stream. I got the broncs. Beat the pats easily then lost in ot due to Elway fumble vs local with Philly. He knew what he was doing. I could not stop Keith jackson Jj's and ccs. But credit him for playing agressive tecmo just like i would if ever go up vs any weak links in the opposing teams secondary. #9routes Humpy had a good game but my 1st drive i riverboated it from 4th and 8 and goal to.goaland was yard shy. i prob shoulda kicked the fg but i like to #Riverboat .Nice to meet online player @ShallahBeywho wad 2nd place. He really plays some tough defense. Moska Joe masueraded as "The shark" and had killed 5 beers by the time i got there. @Tecmobo got his Raiders and did work. Congratulations. Ty to @Allamerican1569 for running a great tourney.

    Go to location x2A273. There's a pattern of numbers, 0000 0100 0200 etc. Each set is a helmet color. They are in order of the team select. So count every 2 pair and you'll be able to find Carolina. Change this to be the same as New England, Dallas, Seattle or Detroit. Hope this helps.

    It was definitely a fun stream, but the initial shock value of the commentators swearing lead to the chat letting them hear about it (during the first game). Then that devolved into a back and forth between the one commentator and the chat. It was all in good fun, but the combination of the commentators not knowing the people in the chat and what was being said was not a good mix. The humor and energy had the Tecmo crowd going at the bar, but the feedback from the people watching the stream was mixed. I'll still go through the footage and upload some of his zingers. As for me, I'm personally one that doesn't like to swear on the internet too much, but I'm also not in the business of filtering it either. I mean come on! I have Nick The Commish as a co-host on Retro Sports Gaming Monthly.

    Thursday Night Football pick: Kansas City Chiefs vs. Oakland Raiders: Suddenly, the arrival of Marshawn Lynch feels more like a mistake. And Derek Carr's premature return from injury seems like a mistake made out of desperation rather than because Carr was ready to play. Both teams have came off of some tough losses. But to restore a bit of perspective, I may have to pick the Chiefs to win this game. Maybe. They're clearly a better football team. But the Raiders have also dug themselves into this hole, and a win here may be what it takes to save their season. The problem is, they aren't really built like the Steelers were when it comes countering the Chiefs. On paper, they have the offensive weapons. But Marshawn Lynch clearly hasn't demonstrated his status as Beast Mode since coming out of retirement. As such, the only thing to fear offensively would be their passing game. So just rush and hammer the quarterback, and keep their offense off the field, and the Chiefs can and should win. Easy picks: Baltimore Ravens vs. Minnesota Vikings: They get their asses handed to them against the Jaguars, then got slaughtered by the Steelers. They even lost to the Bears at home. The Vikings may have a few question marks, but one thing's for certain--that defense is rather scary. And I highly doubt that Joe Flacco or his team's running game will be able to handle them. The only way the Vikings can lose this game is if their offense kills them. But if they play smart keep-away and make minimal mistakes, the Vikings are the clear Survival Pick of the week. New Orleans Saints vs. Green Bay Packers: We're on in New Orleans. That's pretty much what Mike McCarthy said following their devastating loss of both the Viking game and their star QB Aaron Rodgers. Well, we'll just sit back and wait and see. Given the explosive turnover, converting machine that is the Saints secondary, combined with Drew Brees still playing on a high level, this clearly no longer looks like a favorable matchup for the Packers. It will be interesting to see how the Packers respond, but it is difficult to imagine a win coming from them. Carolina Panthers vs. Chicago Bears: Following a home loss to the Eagles, I think the Panthers will get their act together again. Mitch Trubisky was okay. But if the Panthers do well to stuff up the run, then the Panthers will probably win this game. They haven't really won too many games by a wide margin since their week 1 opener against the 49ers. But it still makes the most sense to me. Arizona Cardinals vs. LA Rams: So...the Cardinals looked impressive offensively against the Buccaneers--the first time all season long they found their offensive groove. I do expect something of a high-scoring shootout between these two teams then. But still, the Cardinals need to prove themselves before I can totally get on board with them going forward. Yes, I've said the same thing about the Rams, but a 4-2 start is somewhat encouraging (even though those four wins came against the Colts, 49ers, Cowboys, and Jaguars). Tennessee Titans vs. Cleveland Browns: .......Okay, until the Browns get their shit together, I can no longer pick them to win anything. They honestly look like they have stopped caring about winning, provided that they ever cared at all to begin with. Although the Titans could probably snooze the game away due to their own lack of flash or grit. Dallas Cowboys vs. San Francisco 49ers: .....As stupid as it is to pick the 49ers to win anything anytime soon, they are currently the only NFL team that I got all my picks right thus far. Besides, they've come oh so close to winning each of their last five games. With the Cowboys having to make adjustments without Elliot, I think this will finally be the 49ers' time to get secure a participation award. Cincinnati Bengals vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: The Bungles the last couple of weeks have finally figured out how to score points. Am I going to pick them for a potential upset win against the Steelers? My thoughts are no. Because that bye week came much too soon for a team that has suddenly reignited. The Steelers could still underestimate their opponent and piss the game away though. But I'm still going to pick the Steelers to win this thing. Seattle Seahawks vs. New York Giants: It would be funny to see the Giants win at home against the Seahawks. It'd be something I may actually root for; I can't stand the Seahawks, and it'd at least make me feel a bit more comfortable knowing that my Broncos had lost to them last week. I just don't think it's terribly realistic, even with the West vs. East thing going on. Atlanta Falcons vs. New England Patriots: Let me guess; the Falcons secure a 20-point deficit and then piss the game away. Even with the Patriots defense being a work-in-progress, the lack of a run game, or an aging Tom Brady, I still think the Falcons will once again snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Sorry, but if you can't beat the Bills or the Dolphins--heck, a Dolphins squad led by Jay Cutler in spite leading 17-0 at the half--I have no confidence in the Falcons' chances at redemption against the Patriots. And the rest of the picks I'll make later on in the week. In spite being easy picks, I suspect a lot of these games would be called incorrectly. After the last couple of weeks, if I manage to get all of these picks correctly, I'll be mighty surprised.

    The Equalizer: Green Majik's tourney recap Quick Shout-out to @allamerican1569: this was a great time, buddy. I hope the live stream debacle doesn't taint the perception that this was an otherwise extremely well-run and fun tournament. We got to see @mort1237 Magic vs @regulator088 on the live stream. We also got to see Mort eliminated, WAS-SD, on the live stream by @ShallahBey. And we got to see some great stuff by new Chicago champ @tecmobo. His final 4 match-up vs James Kuhn as the Bucs was also highly entertaining. Group Play: I went 3 - 0 in group 3 play, what a thrill. This was what a mid-skilled player was hoping for: take care of business in group play and get that high lottery pick. That's the only way I could hope to keep step with the big guns in the bracket. I had the good fortune of winning each of my coin tosses in group play, which meant I was not only player one, but got to choose my tier. - First game against Sean C. I select tier 4. Sean takes the Falcons and I take the Steelers. Sean played well, but I contained his run game and gave Rison hell with my secondary all game. I think it was 13-0 toward the end and a garbage time TD made it 20-0. At this point I'm feeling pretty confident with the Steelers. - Second game against @allamerican1569. Tom and I have a couple games under our belt at Michael Anthony's; I believe he's beat me with the Cardinals and Jets. Since "monday night football" at DMen's Tap began a month ago, Tom has beat me every which way: tier 2 Eagles over Raiders, tier 3 Rams over Bucs, tier 4 Falcons over Steelers, tier 5 Packers over Browns ... and he absolutely CRUSHED me Chiefs over Raiders. Three of these games have literally come down to a last second bomb, so although I was 0-7 (or more?!) v him all time, I think he and I both had that sense that I was "due." To Tom's surprise I call tier 4 (I'd threatened on the forum I was going tier 5 in group play). Tom takes the Falcons and I take the Steelers, again. Ironically we'd played this exact match-up the previous Monday at DMen's Tap, Tom beating me with thrilling last-second diving TD to Rison. I was comfortable from the get-go and my familiarity with Tom's play-calling definitely showed up in the second half. I contained his run game and shut down Rison; one 75 yd chuck to Collins was all against the Steelers D. In the first half I stopped Tom on 4th down which gave me a short field and I drove for the long FG. On offense I didn't have much production (Brister 20% for 57 yd)(Lipps 1 rec 29yd), but Hoge (8 carries for 42 yd) went into 'good' in the second half, which helped. Two INTs could have cost me the game: a JJ to Scott Case deep in Falcons territory, and on a poor decision into the endzone late, which took away my chance at a FG and gave Tom a chance to strike back. On his last drive, several called plays made it nearly impossible for the Falcons and I come away with the W. A three-score game; the Steelers with 99 yd offense, Falcons with 124. My kind of Tecmo! - Third game against Dan Slattery. At this point there is only one or two other undefeated group players, so I know I'm one win away from an extremely high lottery pick. I select tier 4 again, but Dan has the audacity to take the Steelers! So I take the Saints. It's the same match-up we played in a practice game before the tournament. (Stats from our scrub game, which led to my 2-0 OT defeat: Saints 62 yd offense (Walsh 50 yd rushing!); Steelers 52 yd offense. Yowza! More impressive than this, Greg Lloyd blocked all three of my FG attempts! I've never seen that before) Like our scrimmage, this game started out as a punter's dual. Dan and I played evenly in this defensive battle, but I was able to get a risky deep JJ to Heyward with like 3 Steelers defenders around him. 10-10 into overtime, and I'm able to put a long drive together for the FG win. Bracket Play: As the only other undefeated player in group play, @tecmobo wins the lottery and selects the Raiders, giving me my dream team Eagles. I looked ahead in the bracket and saw I'd likely be up against Lou's Broncos in the next round. I immediately began brushing up on Broncos INT stats so I could look for deep balls to Jackson and Byars. FS Atwater 31 INT and CB1 Henderson 38 INT. Licking my chops! -Round of 16 against @red98sethuthut (as Broncos). He said it best: The superior team won, not the superior player. The format of The Equalizer allowed a middle-tier player like myself to beat at elite player, Lou, only because I had the Eagles. Yet Lou took it to OT, losing 21-27. Stats: QB Eagles: 9 rush for 46 yd; 316 yd passing and 1 INT. Humphrey: 13 rush for 230 yd. Elway: 9 rush for 36 yd. I just could not find a way to contain Humphrey with Allen, Brown and Joyner. Credit to Lou for ripping off an 85+ yd TD run to open the second half and tie it up. - Second game vs Phil N (as Vikings). Over the last month Phil and I had played a number of times at DMen's tap, with me taking more of the victories. In our most recent game he beat me by two points Vikings over Bucs. I'm feeling pretty confident given I have the Eagles, I have familiarity vs Phil and the Vikings, and I've got momentum at 4-0. Before the game, @mort1237 sagely mentions that Eagles-Vikings is a pretty good match-up. The game is largely a blur to me (didn't take a photo so I don't have specifics). I remember Phil playing a killer ground game with that damn playbook that gives Fenney two running plays. For the most part I shut down AC. Phil scoops and scores a Byars punt return fumble, putting him up 14-7 for the time being, but I counter with a deep chuck to Jackson which sets up a QB Eagles scramble score to close the half. I'm feeling confident in the second half but can't get paydirt; I believe Phil blocks a Ruzek field goal to kill a drive. Driving late 4th quarter down 17-20, QB Eagles gets caught up in the red zone and takes a sack, setting up long-and-goal. With seven seconds on the ~4 yd line (Mort says, again sagely, "it would have to be a quick pass.") I elect for the FG and the tie, sending it into OT. In OT Phil gets the ball and puts a solid drive together, finally getting AC into the game with a ~35yd TD pass. With that I'm knocked out and head over to the live stream to commentate. What a rush! I made some mistakes in my last game, but I also did some good things. Congrats to Phil for making such a deep run vs the Vikings!
