  1. 1983 St. Louis Cardinals For: Tru Portlanders Nor For: Serious Contenders Power Rank: 26 BURP: 12 This squad was chosen in case anyone wanted to roll with Lake Oswego High and Portland State legend Neil Lomax. Big Neil led plenty of nice offenses for the Cards throughout the 80s. '83 was Lomax' 3rd year. Roy Green was a force at WR. Otis (O.J.) Anderson and Stump Mitchell provided a dynamic ground attack and the defense was QB hungry, leading the league with 59 sacks. Despite finishing the season strong with wins over the Giants, Raiders, and Eagles, St. Louis would finish 8-7-1 and a half game out of a playoff berth. Five years later they were in the desert. Scouting Report These team was basically selected as a kind of a fun also-ran, but are perhaps a little tougher then their 8-7-1 record and the forgettable nature of the St. Louis Cardinals would indicate. It should be mentioned that they had two juggernauts in their division, the Redskins and Cowboys, who served the Cards up 4 losses right there. Bruddog's metric, which weighs heavily toward each team's top QB, RB, and WR loves the Cards and its easy to see why. The secondary is a weak sauce overall, but Lionel Washington, who notched 8 Ints that season, is quality and there are a handful of dynamic players in the front seven. Al "Bubba" Baker, the leader of the D, is a forgotten star of his era and a sad shell of his former self by the time he wrapped up his career with the Browns humpy defense in time for the orginal TSB. Perhaps I am having trouble getting around the stigma of this franchise, but I can't imagine they are really in the tier of these other loaded teams. 2005 Cincinnati Bengals For: End Zone Celebrators Not For: Dynamic Defenders Power Rank: 25 BURP: 18 After a rookie season begun as Tacoma native Jon Kitna's backup, Carson Palmer took the reigns completely in 2005, his 3rd season, and the Bengals offense took off. Rudi Johnson was a force running the ball and T.J. Houschmanzode (Championship) provided steady production, but at the center of it all was Chad Johnson who notched 1,432 yards receiving with 9 memorable excursions to paydirt. Hopes were high as the Who Dey boys hosted Pittsburgh at Paul Brown Stadium in the first Bengals playoff game since 1988, but dreams fell to dust when Kimo Von Oelhoffen went low on Carson Palmer and ripped his knee to shreds. Sadly, the Carson Palmer era in Cincinnati would never reach higher heights and the dirty dirty Steelers would go on to claim another Superbowl. Scouting Report This offense could certainly hum with important players in the right spots. This is why the BURP likes the Who Deys so much. Deltha O"Neal had a big year at CB. Tory James was solid at the other spot. The only issue here is just a lack of depth. Aside from Chad, Rudi, and T.J., there is not much in Palmer's arsenal. Defensively, its just pretty weak overall. It should be mentioned that the OL is excellent and Shayne Graham was a money kicker. This Bengals team was perhaps chosen to reflect this franchise's position in the historical hierarchy. They were not designed to be picked, but if you went with CHAD and friends, it might not be a total disaster. ... Keep it locked here for more rankings and breakdowns!
  2. I suppose I should probably make this rom available to look at. Message me if you have problems accessing it. Greats.nes
  3. Okay so I thought I would introduce the 28 teams in a fun way. I'm going to count them down by my own assessment of where they should be selected, with #1 being the biggest juggernaut of the group. To balance with my own rankings, which are largely based on a vibe, I am also providing some empirical analysis from @bruddog which will be represented by the Bruddog Ultimate Rating Page or BURP number. Lets get into the first couple, chosen due to their potentially unique weapons at QB. 2011 Denver Broncos For: The devout. Not For: The practical. Power Rank: 28 BURP: 27 In the waning days of a lost 2010 campaign, Denver gave the reigns to rookie QB and college football GOAT Tim Tebow. He sparked the team and led them to a respectable finish. In 2011, new head coach John Fox looked to veteran Kyle Orton to lead the Broncs. After a 1-4 start and overwhelming outcry from the fans, Fox was forced to scrap the gameplan and let Jesus take the wheel with Tebow. The Broncos then miraculously went on a 7-1 run with several famous close shave victories, often with clutch kicks by Matt Prater. They dropped their last 3 but still somehow got into the playoffs at 8-8. Given no chance hosting the venerable Steelers in the first round, Tim Tebow had one last surprise, serving up a strike to Demaryius Thomas, who took the first play of OT 80 yards for the win. The following week they were dismantled by the Brady and the Patriots. In the off-season, Peyton Manning chose to sign with Denver and Tebow was dealt to the Jets. He never got another chance to lead a team and finishes his career record at 8-6. Not saying he was good, but maybe throwing is only part of what makes a good QB. Scouting Report Meet the only QB in the history of Tecmo who might just bowl over some schmo. What else? Well, Willis McGahee is a strong RB. The targets are a little thin with future stud WRs Demaryius Thomas in his injury-delayed rookie season and Eric Decker in his 1st season as a starter. The defense is led by two legendary DBs- Brian Dawkins in his final season and Champ Bailey in the 3rd to last season of his long incredible career. Elvis Dumervil was at the height of his terror-inducing pass rushing in 2011. Von Miller was just a rookie, but still got 11.5 sacks. If you are an old school Denver fan who enjoyed wreaking havoc with Simon Fletcher at the LB4 spot, Miller should do the trick for ya. A couple noticeably poor players pepper what, in the end, is an average overall defense. This team is not so bad that they could not pull off a win, but if you are picking them you are taking a leap of faith. 2004 Atlanta Falcons For: Fans of QB Eagles Not For: Fans of QB pockets Power Rank: 27 BURP: 28 This is perhaps the most memorable Madden team of all-time. QB Eagles had set the stage for cheap video game yardage accumulation, but after he went down with multiple injuries, robbing him of his ridiculous running ability, there were not too many dynamic speedster signal-callers throughout the 90s. Michael Vick was not only capable of getting some nice chunks of yards in the open field, he was one of the fastest players in the whole league. Oh yeah, and he had a rocket launcher for an arm. After missing most of 2003 to injury, 2004 is the year it came together for Vick and the Falcons as they went 11-5 then smashed the St. Louis Rams in the playoffs, before losing in the Conference Championship. Vick ended up breaking Cunningham's QB rushing record, finishing with 902 yards on the ground. With Warrick Dunn and TJ Duckett also in the mix, Atlanta led the NFL in rushing. Scouting Report The defense is just not that good.Keith Brooking and Patrick Kerney are strong players. Rookie DeAngelo Hall saves the secondary from being a complete mess, but manning bottom corners is tough in TSB. Someone could absolutely bring some ruckus with this team with RBs Warrick Dunn and TJ Duckett giving the offense some balance. Aside from TE Alge Crumpler, the receiving core sucks. Brian Finneran, whose 99 jump rating made him an unstoppable glitch bitch on Madden is joined by every other player in the game with that ability here. He does, however, get a solid for a WR 25 hitting power to reflect his largeness. That's somethin. You can probably create enough headaches with Vick to move the chains on offense, but you better have a gameplan with this D if you want to roll with the Dirty Birds. ...

  4. The KNOCKOUT element of Portland Tecmo will be played exclusively on Everdrive and feature a special rom I have made. The rom features a famous team from each of the 28 TSB franchises that captured the imagination of NFL fans and kicked butt. Some of the teams are more dominant than others. At the beginning of the competition we will be drafting up the teams with the rookies getting first dibs through to previous champions such as MYSELF getting the final choices. I will be telling the story of each team on this rom in this forum with a breakdown of their strengths and weakness little by little as we get closer to Jan 27. Once the rom is complete, ill also make available for anyone to download and look at themselves. The WINNER of the KNOCKOUT tourney will get their own sick trophy and decent $$$ prize, so you are going to want to study up! Keep it locked here for the info!
  5. @madmanyo360 or @SirTed I presume... but we still gon flow like we flow
  6. It's probably gonna be $25.... Start saving now.... Sounds like Operation TBK to Madison is gonna be a uphill battle
  7. Updated some format details! We are very excited about the KNOCKOUT
  8. More legends in the mix?? I am FIRED UP. I encourage everyone who is thinking about coming to this to chime in or get at me. I know we are a flaky bunch so the format will be designed with malleability in mind, but an idea of who all is a potential factor will be very useful in the planning to make this as awesome of a tourney as possible!
  9. We got a maybe from FAIRF! Uh oh... So I updated this roster with everyone I've heard from. Lookin pretty STRONG all of a sudden. JBrooks is not the shifty #21 for Cincy, it's Peter's son!... Yeah if all of these dudes are in the building, this is gonna be red hot, but I expect SEVERAL more to be added to the mix before we kick this bitch off. BRING IT TO BRIDGETOWN.
  10. Just confirmed. We are locked in. Laurelwood Brewing. 5115 NE Sandy Blvd, Portland, OR 97213, Jan 27 Further details forthcoming! THIS IS HAPPENING
  11. Hahaha. Well, the original plan was to find a date that was NOT the same date as the Tundra Bowl as I still have dreams of making it to Green Bay... We shall see.
  12. Hey everyone! Long time no post. Just been a little too busy to make this tournament happen, but I still want to battle on the 8-bit gridiron with you fools in the Rose City. We're gonna regroup, reload, and try to make it happen another time. Tentative date: Jan 27. I'll be in touch with yas.
  13. RT @FourVerts: - bills get a 6th for marcell dareus - bills trade a 3rd and a 7th for kelvin benjamin https://t.co/Wa2Hp8lk2u

  14. @tecmopsycho Amazing game. Wait til you get to Spectre Knight!

  15. Portland Tecmo Super Bowl Championship Saturday, Jan 27, Laurelwood Brewing, 5115 NE Sandy Blvd. 11 am PORTLAND, OREGON The return to the Rose City. This time bigger, stronger, BOLDER. Logic behind the name: 1) J.J. Birden is a Tecmo Legend that hailed from NE Portland and starred for the Oregon Ducks 2) Portland Tecmo Legend Tailback King constantly struggles with his desire to compete within the structure of Tecmo Tournaments and his need to honor #39 Johnny J for the Cards. It's a burden for him, or a Birden if you will. 3) Winning a game cause of some JJ (jumping jackass) bullshit leaves the winning player a burden, which often results in the Tecmo Gods evening things out later Things to look forward to in this tournament: 1) Momentum carried over from Johnny Johnson in the Beaver, which had an endless amount of memorable matchups and introduced us to several new players on the scene. 2) Co-Organization from Portland native and reigning Seattle champ Ptitteri, who has been organizing a small Portland Tecmo tourney for several years. 3) The further evolution of TBK, who continues to mold his game beyond relying on Johnny Johnson's hidden stats. 4) Gripsmoke not boning out. 5) Improved format from last year's PDX throwdown. 6) Some good-ass fucking microbrew FLOWIN 7) The usual Pacific Northwest Tecmo shenanigans Chime in on the BOARD to get your name on the LIST. 1. D.T. (The Boss) 2. Ptitteri (The Enforcer) 3. Gripsmoke (The OG) 4. TBK (The King) 5. InvaderStar (The Elusive One) 6. Tick (The Nature Boy) 7. Kamphuna (The Sage) 8. BWagg (The Donkey) 9. Shermy80 (The Shutdown Corner) 10. JBrooks (The Future) 11. D Money (The Panda) 12. Jake the Snake (The Killer) 13. Flyin Ryan (The Bomber) 14. RPW44 (The Coug) 15. Lefty Locey (The Cheerleader) 16. The Great North Wes (The Dude) 17. Fairf (The QB)??? 18. WHO ELSE??? Format: The main Championship deciding tournament will closely resemble PNW tourneys past. A regular season with 8 players progressing to a double-elimination playoff. The player matchups in the regular season will be pre-determined to keep the games rolling, unlike previous tourneys. This worked very well in Seattle for maximum action! We barely had time to sip our Microbrews... In addition to the regular competition, there will also be a soccer inspired KNOCKOUT tourney going on simultaneously where player matchups are randomly assigned. These games will take place on a special rom I will be compiling for the tournament. We will be drafting up teams from this rom at the beginning of the day and rolling with them throughout the KNOCKOUT competition. A 2nd chance for glory! A 2nd chance for $$$. Keep it here to find more information regarding this rom and the payout distribution in the coming weeks. PORTLAND
