  1. eGGcellent memory. I completely forgot to mention about how important tapping is in this matchup. In the video AJ was crushing me and getting big gainers against all those pokey CIN drones. But I got a late fumble early in his possession to put it away.
  2. I was recently watching my Midwest Tecmo games on the stream and was reading the comments from my CIN/T.B matchup call. The comments were consistent with what I hear a lot from folks. Even veteran players. Here's my breakdown on why I love it. I baited my man @manyo360 in the round of 32 in Madison some years back. Manyo, is this in the black book now? Tampa Bay's weaknesses are: OL, DL, LB and that's it. Throw in an All-Tecmo defender with a top 5 DB unit combined with a 31ms QB and a 94HP RB/TE. There's good value to eek out here in the right hands. Cincinnati's weaknesses are: DL, LB, and WR. In this matchup Cincy's impotent DL cancels out T.B's shitty OL (which is the fear, usually. no one wants Vinny running for his life with that low PS). Yeah, Francis has 69HP but coincidentally T.Bs best lineman is at OL4 sporting a healthy 50HP to keep Francis in check under average conditions. I call this the Paul Han(d)s Gruber effect. The shitty WR's of Cincy against a top DB squad in Tampa Bay make throwing into coverage very dangerous. Get up early with T.B in this matchup and it's very hard for the Bungles to come clawing back. If your opponent does not take the bait and picks T.B you still have the "better" team in the Bengals. Brooks, Boomer and Fo-Rock can always get it done in the right hands. Also, at a quick glance these teams are similar with mobile QBs and single stud DBs. So as far as playbooks go.... choose wisely. Watch it at 7:54 - I'm the Bengals. AJ didn't take the bait. I go on to win this tournament.
  3. Hell yeah. Once someone gets good enough at offense (that's not a shot at you lol) they can spend a bit more on defense for pre-play reads. I really grew used to having my best LB at LB1, second best at LB4 (really just to make my opponent at least think about it), highest INT DB at DB1 (because he drops back more) and next "best" DB at DB4 (with a hard-on for HP). If I only have one DB he goes to DB3. Fuck, I miss this stuff.
  4. Agreed. After implementing my own little system (that's difficult to explain) I won S28 and started sharing the knowledge after it was implemented and tested successful. I feel like my greatest Tecmo attribute is overall strategy and tilting of the odds in my favor whenever possible. I'm not excellent in any one aspect of the game. This separates the hombres from the chicos.
  5. Idk but now I want to make a ROM with the top offenses combined with the worst defenses and vice versa. So Pitt would possibly remain unchanged lol.
  6. I like Indy. Since the NE offense is so slow they won't break a huge play on Indy, and you can MAN 11 different guys for optimal position lol. Perhaps, it also comes down to how comfortable someone is MANning Lippett at DB2.
  7. Yes, I think.
  8. No one repped this post because Motel 6 is gone, you bastard.
  9. Who wants to get dirty with me at the Motel 6? I'm half-kidding. Glad to see the S8E back.
  10. My man crush for you knows no bounds.
  11. I must be having USFL wet dreemz again. I underwhelmingly played this battle! I'll check the arckives in the coming days to weeks to years.
  12. As commish he did tons of good. The only bad outside of being a dick was setting his alignment, releasing the odd number week, setting his alignment again, then releasing the even week. As a coach he chose to leave when he got hit with a demerit and dropped a draft position. It was not his first demerit but the 2nd one was caused by someone else. His behind the scenes antics were nearly obsessive until he decided to quit. I believe he was looking for an out anyway but who knows (or cares). He went down rep crazy and reported me and others to the admins. I believe I still hold a report for "general dickishness" on my profile that I wear very proudly. He created fake profiles and trolled pretty relentlessly. But all that was in good fun until he (allegedly? maybe? probably?) posted a GoFundMe soliciting funds from Tecmoers. At least one donated. To my knowledge those funds have not been returned and no authentic apology has been made, that I personally know of. It's my understanding that his claims on GoFundMe were in contrast to public information found on the internet. Bringing him back has always been more of a time heals everything type of thing and not a ban. It was put to vote once and he was denied. That's all I got.
  13. Good evening.  I just discovered that you can play Tecmo online.  I am 44 and played all the time as a teenager and a man my early 20's with my friends and my Brothers. I got on a site where you can play against the computer and now my son and nephews 9 & 11 are addicted.  You look like you are in the know about Tecmo online.  Is there a way that I can set up a Season with my Brothers, Son, and Nephews online that we can save and play once or twice a week?


    Thanks for your time.

  14. Far too kind, sir! Thank you. You were certainly missed. Once I recover from the emotional roller coaster I'll have to pay my respects to all those I owe thanks. Still doesn't feel real.
