    • The Tecmobowl.org yearly release is just hours before the first game of the NFL kicks off. Probably the most noteworthy item not in our notes is the change in the intro screen of Aaron Rodgers, Todd Gurley, and JJ Watt to Patrick Mahomes, Ezekiel Elliott, and Aaron Donald in addition to a recent Bill Belichick quote.
      In addition to ranking the glamour positions like quarterback, running back, and wide receiver each year this is a laundry list of updates which include
      updating helmets rating 160 offensive linemen editing the simulation rankings for 800 players editing the jersey numbers for 960 players changing the pro bowl players updating the playbooks and team simulation rankings updating the schedule burning through the rom to check for any crashing bugs  
      It's a lot of hours but something I enjoy putting together each year with help where ever I can find it. I hope you enjoy it.
