    As I'm sure all of you are aware, there are 840 players in the original Tecmo Super Bowl. However, when it comes down to tournament time and you're in the middle of a game sometimes you forgot the simple things like the INT level of Dennis Byrd or the MS of Rod McSwain.

    Well, we have something for you. Living legend "Buck", when not busy making some of the world's greatest hacks, put together this handy cheat sheet. After printing it out, you can then cut it down to size and it forms a 28 page booklet of all the teams minus those unnecessary attributes like Passing Accuracy and Quickness. You know it's been proven they aren't actually used by the game, right? Oof... also check out the included attributes guide.

    There are a lot of people these days who might not know of Leif Powers as he's been out of the Tecmo business for a while.  He used to roam our forums as "Nameless Loser" and besides being quite an outstanding player (the man can tap) he was famous for writing one of the most comprehensive documents on Tecmo Super Bowl that to this day has no equal. While there are a few inaccuracies given he didn't have as much insight into the inner workings of the game that we have today there is no doubt you won't learn a few tricks.  Links below.

    You might have seen reference to this on the Tecmo Super Bowl Facebook page but Tecmo Inspired Gridiron Heros has hit project incubator Kickstarter today. GH initially will be a simulation or "coach mode" type game on Facebook with aspirations of head to head play via the social media giant.

    There is a pretty clever video describing the point of the game. It should be interesting to see how this progresses as it's actually quite surprising that no one has tried before now to duplicate the game play of Tecmo Super Bowl until now.

    Things to expect in real life based on a 20 year old video game with updated players


    Patriots are going to air the ball out with Wes Welker putting up almost an MVP performance
    Giants run more of a balanced offense with Brandon Jacobs stepping up
    Victor Cruz is going to be involved in the game winning drive
    The Patriot's hopes will be crushed by Justin Tuck
    This should be a video game like performance from both teams in which offense isn't a factor
    Thanks to our own fatcheerleader for putting together this year's video
