  1. The most TDs w/ no INTs?

    Everett to Flipper Anderson and Henry Ellard, all day long.... It's a shame he's only ever remembered for the incident with Jim Rome. Everett was a good quarterback who probably would've been amazing had he been on better teams.
  2. For years, this has been the ultimate challenge to me with every Tecmo game. I want to try and win a SB with every last team. These days I mostly stick to TSB 2, but I still play this one as well as TSB 3 a lot. I've had some ups and downs in my journeys with all the teams. IMO the beautiful thing about these old games is that every team is truly unique with their own playbook and style of play that it truly is a personal experience to use every team. It's why I like to do full seasons playing every single game of the week. Through doing that over the years, I've learned the teams inside and out through these games. This game has an advantage over TSB 2 and TSB 3 being that you don't have to worry about defensive injuries or really adjusting defense. Those games have advanced defense, so it makes learning the teams a lot different with the formations and backup players. Anyways, here's how my journey has went so far with all the teams. Bills - 1 try. This was easy, even with playing the Oilers in the playoffs. I drew Dallas in the SB and crushed them 31-14. Colts - 1 try (extremely lucky and very frustrating. I could write in length how crazy this season was and the SB was easily the hardest one I've ever had vs the Cowboys). Dolphins - Not attempted yet Patriots - Not attempted yet Jets - 4 tries. I kept losing to Buffalo in the playoffs but when I finally did reach the SB I got to play the Eagles. The COM stupidly went pass happy with Cunningham and I won 21-7. Bengals - Not attempted yet but I want to cause I know how bad David Klinger is. He alone will make this a challenge worthwhile. Browns - 5 tries. Ohhhh my god...this was the hardest one yet. It took 4 tries to even get them to the SB and then a heart breaking loss to the 49ers. I beat them in the SB the next season. Oilers - 2 tries. It's really difficult to maintain a good run game with Houston, but if you can do it, it makes the ride easier. Steelers - Not attempted yet Broncos - Not attempted yet Chiefs - Incomplete. Out of 3 tries, they either lose to Buffalo in the playoffs, or the one time i made the SB, they got crushed by the 49ers. Raiders - Not attempted yet Chargers - Incomplete, 3 tries. I love this defense and I love Marion Butts, but I can't stand Stan Humphries. I always go with Friez and he isn't much better. Seahawks - Not attempted yet. This one will probably be the ultimate challenge though since their offense is so god awful. Cowboys - 1 try. Don't even have to go into details, since this is the best all around team in the whole game. I even went 15-1 with them. Redskins - Incomplete, 3 tries. I've gotten them to the NFCCG twice where they lost to Dallas and the 49ers. Another time they got blown out to Green Bay in the divisional round. Eagles - 3 tries and wow, this was quite a challenge. Had to face Dallas AND the 49ers in the playoffs before rolling a Dolphins team who posed no threat. Cardinals - Not attempted yet. Giants - Not attempted yet Bears - Not attempted yet. Lions - Incomplete, 3 tries. It's taken me a lot of practice but I've figured out how to use their defense. NFC is brutal and usually is why they don't go far in the playoffs. Packers - Incomplete, 3 tries. If it weren't for Favre and Reggie White, this would be one of the worst teams in the game. Try running the ball with them and you'll see what I mean. Vikings - Not attempted yet. Buccaneers - 2 tries. First time I lost in an upset to the Oilers in the SB. The second time, I beat the ever loving crap out of the Dolphins for my biggest SB blow out ever - 41-14 DeBerg MVP 49ers - 3 tries. This offense is so easy to score with but there are times when the defense is a problem. Needless to say, Dallas stopped me in the playoffs my first two tries. Rams - 2 tries. First time, lost the SB to Buffalo. Second try, I came back from a 14-3 deficit and mostly won due to Thurman Thomas getting injured and a fumble return for a TD. Saints - Incomplete. 4 tries. The most one dimensional good team in the whole game. The defense alone took me to the NFCCG and I always lose cause Wade Wilson is blah. Falcons - Incomplete. 2 tries. I like the Falcons offense a lot in this game, but Dallas just destroys me in the playoffs. Maybe some day.
  3. Tecmo Super Bowl 1

    This would be a dream come true. And if it could work on TSB 3, I think we'd see a lot of people busy replicating recent years into ROMs.
  4. The most TDs w/ no INTs?

    Wow, great stuff everyone. I sometimes play the SNES versions trying to do this. It's cool to see Jim Everett getting some love. He's one of my favorite Tecmo quarterbacks. He always blesses me with great luck when I use the Rams.
  5. Raiders vs 49ers Super Bowl tips?

    Great advice by everyone. I don't know how you are playing defense, but I usually always select running plays on defense.....except when playing the 49ers or Dolphins. The Niners and Dolphins are the two main teams in this game who usually pass more often than not, so it's safer to try and guess which pass play the CPU is going to select. This can help you when playing either of them, since you are going to want those moments where you get the blitz rush from guessing their play accurately.
  6. NFL 2018-2019 Season Discussion

    Here's to hoping the Saints don't fuck up everything from last season's success. Knowing their history in the Sean Payton era how they follow up winning seasons by going 7-9, I'm just praying that this isn't another year of Drew Brees' career wasted. R.I.P. Tom Benson. He leaves behind a rather complicated history in New Orleans. The SB win really changed everything with how he was viewed by pretty much everyone. The biggest issue is almost moving the team to San Antonio in the wake of Katrina. He did the right thing by keeping the team here, as well as rebuilding the Superdome after it's massive damage. I'm praying I never have to witness seeing the Saints move in my lifetime, cause it would be the one thing to make me give up the NFL all together. I remember back in the day, Benson used to be criticized and labeled a cheap owner. During the 90's, this was the reaction to how quickly the Dome Patrol defense was ripped apart in free agency and due to the lack of any splash signings on offense (This isn't even technically true, because they did sign Michael Haynes and Jim Everett, which everyone forgets about here cause they didn't work out). The major criticisms came with Sam Mills' departure and how badly that was handled by the organization. Mills said that he wanted to stay in New Orleans but felt unwanted when they didn't offer him a contract, and only did so after the Panthers offered him something. Today, Mills has a statue in Carolina and is seen as a hero to that organization (please for the love of everything, get this man in the Hall of Fame. My favorite Saints player back in my childhood, R.I.P.) The SB win really changed everything for his legacy here. Probably the best thing he did after that was buying the NBA team and then trying to get the rights to the old Jazz name back. Though he failed with the name, he did at least make sure we'd have an NBA team here along with our Saints. R.I.P.
  7. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    Delhomme played amazing in that SB. Of all the Patriots SB wins, that one is my favorite. It was a back and forth game and very entertaining from start to finish. Carolina was a crazy team that year cause they pulled out so many clutch wins that were by 7 points or less. I thought for sure once that game was tied, it would go to OT and the Panthers would pull another clutch win out like they had done so many times that year. TO was phenomenal too in the Eagles SB you mentioned. I re-watched that game a few times last year and Andy Reid's clock management in the 4th quarter is still a sight to behold. Pats go up by 10 and he spent all that time fiddling, letting the clock run.
  8. On a lesser note, curious how this stat chart would view if the Ravens had the combined old wins from when they used to be the Browns and making CLE into an expansion team. I imagine the Ravens rank much higher with the old Browns' past.
  9. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    That circus catch from the Seattle game you mention has been forgotten in time. Same thing with Julio Jones' clutch catch before the Falcons screwed it all up. That's the funny thing about losing a SB - those amazing plays are entirely forgotten. Makes you wonder if Mark Ingram Sr's tackle busting clutch play in the Bills/Giants SB would've been remembered if Norwood makes that field goal at the end.
  10. Awesome stuff. I am so happy that people are still playing these games all these years later. Miss the days I could come on here and chat with you all. These are the greatest football games ever, I hope we can pass them down to the next generation who seem to be really into retro gaming.
  11. I find it hilarious the Saints and Falcons are tied. Both teams have rarely ever had success at the same time and despite the rivalry having it's moments, it's only ever had a true sense of significance in a few years - 1991, 2010, 2011, and 2017 are the only times both teams made the playoffs and the divisional games between them were very important.
  12. I think I am the only person on the entire internet who has a love for TSB II. It's just something about this game that draws me to it above every other version. One of the things being the harder difficulty, along with better chances of returning interceptions for touchdowns, and the whole 3 year mode with rosters. Some day I would like to do my own hacked ROM of this game, and do a complete 3 year mode. My pick would be the 1989, 1990 and 1991 seasons. The main reason being that it would be a prelude before where this game starts (with the 1992 season) and I think it could be done with minimal requirements of graphics updates. (Only the Patriots old white and red uniforms I think would have to be tweaked in here). Some other things I would like to fix in this game - One major thing I'd like to tweak is turning off the 2 point conversion entirely, or at least tweaking it how the COM don't stupidly go for 2 every time they're down only by 7 points in the second half of games. (Because I would use seasons before 1993, the 2 point conversion should be eliminated for accuracy). Graphics fix and this is just a minor thing that gets under my skin. I would like to some how, some day, set the uniforms accurately for teams that wear white at home. This would be the Cowboys, Redskins and I think the Eagles from time to time used to wear white at home during these years. It would be a nice little fix there, to at least have the Cowboys and Redskins wearing the white jerseys at home. Would like to also fix this how the AFC winner can wear colored uniforms in the SB instead of always white.
  13. My 2nd game, which it became a rout...

    Chris Warren is awesome. He's even terrific in the SNES Tecmo games, especially TSB 1 and the 1992 season of TSB 2. He literally carries that entire scrub offense.
  14. NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

    Thank you, I am hoping Cooks improves over time. We loved him here in New Orleans, and many fans were upset over the trade initially. He has amazing speed, but it just never worked out here. The Saints basically tried to make him as their new Marques Colston by assigning him multiple roles on the offense, and must have thought he would be a jack of all trades player (Payton tried desperately to use him on special teams in 2014 and 2015). I think in 2016 Sean Payton must have realized that Michael Thomas was his best bet for a #1 receiver since Thomas was amazing down field in coverage, and he improved a great deal this past year. This past year, Ted Ginn Jr pretty much was used as Cooks replacement with end around run plays and the slot position. (I'm hoping Ginn returns cause he seems to have finally found a good home with a team that utilizes his skill set. He gave us many exciting plays this year). The slot is where I always felt Cooks thrived the best. He had his finest moments with the Saints as a slot receiver. Some of those long TD passes he had from Brees came from the slot with him outrunning DB's down the field. In some ways, he kinda reminded me a bit of Devery Hendersen and the few times the Saints would use him in the slot. Using Ginn as a comparison, for years people bashed him for dropped passes and never playing up to his expectations but he shined last year, so I think the same can happen for Cooks eventually. I hated to see him get injured in the SB (and the hit going to another former Saint - Malcolm Jenkins, ironic as hell). Wishing him the best and I think eventually he can learn his ways in New England. The pure talent is there, if he can improve in time, he could become a dangerous wide receiver. I say the trade worked out for both teams. Pats got Cooks who had his best career year this past season, and in New Orleans we got an O-lineman out of that pick and later took Kamara whom quickly became the first Saint in years to make me want to run out and purchase a jersey.
  15. AI 2 Point Attempts

    Update to this - When the COM is down by 7 points, they won't go for 2 points in the 1st quarter at least, sometimes. Of course, this don't happen every single time. Tested this multiple times now. I've had games up from 14-14, 21-21, 28-28 and for some odd reason, the weird 2 point conversion instead of a tie tends to happen more often in the second half of games, especially in the 4th quarter. Tested again late in the 1992 and 1993 seasons and strangely, in the later weeks of the season, the COM don't do the 2 point conversion thing at all in some games at any point. I've had the COM get touchdowns in the final minutes and kick extra points for a tie into OT, and not doing the 2 point conversion attempt it usually tries. (Also to note, the COM in this game plays juiced in the final weeks of the season. Even the worst teams will suddenly look like playoff teams against you).
