Yo Maynard, I saw that you downvoted my proclamation of Case Keenum's ELITE quarterbacking skills. Are you afraid of him possibly definitely outdueling Brady in the Super Bowl? Before, you know, Brady gets carted off the field after being destroyed by Everson Griffen, Linval Joseph, Tom Johnson, and Danielle Hunter?

Spoken like a true bottom feeder who’s been waiting for their uppercumance after what feels like a generation of woeful ineptitude.

I am by no means a Giants fan, for obvious reasons. I take great joy in taking shots at the Manning legacy in the NFL. This all being said, Ben F*ckadoo benching Eli Manning is a disgrace. F*ckadoo and Jerry Reese clearly care more about their positions than honoring a career that has brought the Giants more success than the majority of their quarterbacks. Gino fkn Smith... F*ck you, Ben F*ckadoo and Jerry Reese. May the Giants not reach the playoffs for the remainder of their tenure.

 

Fuck Eli.

 

Lots of great qbs lose it and have gotten benched. You think this is the first time a (previously) good qb has gotten benched? What world are you living in?

 

Anyways, he's the coach and he's gonna shake stuff up and try to get his team playing better.

 

so many pussies out there saying what Eli "deserves". fuck you, pussies. Go coach a team yourself. Good luck, with an attitude like that.  Football isn't about what some old ass shitty Eli manning "deserves". It's about winning games.  Surely Geno can win a game, or one.

 

eli getting benched doesn't negate his past. Only pussy media clowns want to project this present moment onto Eli's past.  

 

Eli is presently playing like he's washed up. And His team just sux. So coach Gotta shake stuff up. Eli is a cool dude, and with all due respect fuck him, due to the present situation.

 

give geno a chance. Mcastache is just trying to win a fucking game.

I agree with this.

 

But one has to wonder, with the recent shit-storm surrounding the NFL, if this has anything to do with race.  Maybe McAdoo is trying to please all the people on the Kaepernick fake outrage bandwagon?

In my estimation, management knew they were moving away from Eli--they offered him the chance to start games, but not finish them, and he turned that down. Gino probably wound up being the choice because they probably don't want a straight-up Bills-from-last-week episode of QB shuffling incompetence by putting in the 3rd-string rookie QB. There are no secrets in Gino's game; dude has started over 2 seasons worth of games. Everyone knows what Gino's game is about.

Giants management blew it. Mara blew it. Eli is going to walk away from this whole thing as a martyr, just like Bolt said.

Man, I'm guessing you guys think capernick should be starting somewhere? What other bum QB do you guys think "deserves" to start?

Definitely not Geno Smith. And the QB isn't even the position that the Giants need to address; they're down to their 4th string receivers, their offensive line is trash, and their best RB is some guy named Orleans Darkwa. Brett Favre in his prime couldn't make that a functional offense.

If the Giants had a decent prospect at QB - and/or - it didn't benefit them to tank, then I'd be on board with benching Eli.  If Geno, by some stroke of miracle, comes in and wins a few games, it's only going to hurt them.

Have you football geniuses even read what the GIA coach said?

 

coach said that he wanted to let these other QBs play some, but Eli would start. Eli said "no" to that idea.  So coach said, "see ya, ya bum!"

 

he said he is going with Geno for now and is going to get that other dude Webb rolling, too.

 

it's not exclusive Geno time. But at least Geno has a little NFL experience, and then ease the Webb dude in.

 

have you read how Eli is helping these other QBs get ready? Eli himself knows he is a bum. But you football geniuses don't agree!  

 

Anyways, you gonna sit here and say what a coach shouldn't do with a freaking 2-9 GIA team and a bum QB  You gonna sit here and say "poor Eli"? Pssshh.

 

again, all due respect to Eli for what he's done in the past...but this ain't the past anymore.

Nope.  I don't really care that much.  Eli was never really that good (just like R-Will), he just had a great defense for a while.

Read any QB statements about this story (from Steve Young to Tom Brady) and pretty much all of them have said that if they were Eli, they would have told the Giants to eat shit, as well.

yeah, they can both eat shit.  GIA and Eli.  GIA just told Eli to eat shit first, and all the haters are jealous.

 

I can see where you're coming from, but I couldn't help but laugh at this last part. You sound like a teenage girl talking about her haters.

Chiefs have lost six freaking straight games. Andy's lost all faith in Kareem Hunt and our running game and look at where it's getting us. He and Sutton need to be fired after this season. There's no excuse for us starting hot only to go downhill. Not Berry's injury, not the injury to Charcandrick West.

Also, not to take anything away from the Chiefs gameplan last night, because they did straight up beat the Pats--but let's be honest, that was probably one of, if not THE best game of Alex Smith's entire career. Dude blew his load early. That was not the Alex Smith we all know, and it won't be the Alex Smith we see throughout most of the regular season.

 

I suppose Alex Smith did in fact blow his load early.

      @gojiphen malor
      @Knobbe
      @BigCat71
      @manYo720
      @Miles Prower
       
      Also, for future reference, if you don't specify who's going to win by game time, it counts as a loss against you.  If you honestly cannot bring yourself to guess right away, you have until the games start to come up with a winner.  Or you can be the gutsy one and call a tie.
       
      Anyways, I'll make my picks later.  I need to think about my choices before I settle on anything concrete.

      Time for Week 2, everybody!  Here are this week's games:
       
      Baltimore Ravens @ Cincinnati Bengals
      Carolina Panthers @ Atlanta Falcons
      Los Angeles Chargers @ Buffalo Bills
      Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers
      Houston Texans @ Tennessee Titans
      Cleveland Browns @ New Orleans Saints
      Miami Dolphins @ New York Jets
      Kansas City Chiefs @ Pittsburgh Steelers
      Philadelphia Eagles @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
      Indianapolis Colts @ Washington Redskins
      Arizona Cardinals @ Los Angeles Rams
      Detroit Lions @ San Francisco 49ers
      Oakland Raiders @ Denver Broncos
      New England Patriots @ Jacksonville Jaguars
      New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys
      Seattle Seahawks @ Chicago Bears
       
      Make your picks!  Here's mine!
       
      Ravens, Panthers, Chargers, Packers, Texans, Saints, Jets, Chiefs, Eagles, Redskins, Rams, 49ers, Broncos, Patriots, Giants, and Bears.
       
      Survival pick for this week would have to be the Saints or 49ers.  A lot of tossup games this week as well.  Though the biggest question mark is the Packers.  If Aaron Rodgers is ruled out for the week, I'm gonna change my pick to the Vikings.
       
      Edit:  I changed one of my picks.  Instead of thinking the Falcons will win, I am now leaning more towards Carolina.  Hopefully, I don't regret that pick.  And since Aaron Rodgers is back out on the practice field, I am still leaning more towards Green Bay.  But if he ends up getting ruled out tomorrow, I'm gonna change my pick to Minnesota.  Everything else will be left as is.

      I'm going to simply keep track of everybody's scores manually.  Each person has until five minutes before the game starts to put their Pick'ems in.  And I'll be keeping track of the tallies for each week, and for the whole year in general.  As an added bonus, I'll even keep track of how many times somebody wins a particular week.  But with the highest tally after the Super Bowl wins.
       
      Two rules!  You got until five games before the game starts to put a pick in.  Otherwise, it will be treated as a non pick.  In addition, every pick must be made in a single comment.  You can discuss things if you want.  But for the sake of keeping track of everybody's choices, all picks--even if you change your mind later on--must be located in the same comment.  Otherwise, it will be treated as a non pick.
       
      With that said, let's cover the games that are to take place in Week 1!
       
      ATL @ PHI
      PIT @ CLE
      CIN @ IND
      TEN @ MIA
      SF @ MIN
      HOU @ NE
      TB @ NO
      JAX @ NYG
      BUF @ BAL
      KC @ LAC
      SEA @ DEN
      WAS @ ARI
      DAL @ CAR
      CHI @ GB
      NYJ @ DET
      LAR @ OAK
       
      Here are my weekly picks:  Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Tennessee, Minnesota, New England, New Orleans, Jacksonville, Baltimore, Chargers, Broncos, Cardinals, Panthers, Packers, Lions, and Rams.  My Survivor pick of the week, however, is Pittsburgh over Cleveland (yes, a road team being chosen as the Survivor Pick of the Week; it is the Browns, after all).  And my toughest pick to make was Arizona over Washington.

      Ok.  Before the Season starts, full-throw I gotta grandiose little idea for a "game" we could play.
       
      Name a number - 1 through 99 - and the Player you FIRST associate with it.  YOU CAN BE SELECTIVE, THOUGH!  If, on first association you think of a player you don't like (for whatever reason), you can think the next player, and speak it, instead...  We only want players you associate in a GOOD way!  [NOTE:  Doesn't have to be "the best" player you think of for a given number, though.]
       
      By the end, we'll tally all the numbers, and define - by observing who had the most repeat associations among us - the Goodest *Player*... by jersey-number;  and, overall.
       
      Here, I'll start randomly and begin with the # 75.  You all chime in with your 75 (can be the same as mine/ anyone else's), and then throw out some #'s/ players you think of.
       
       
      For me, when I think of 75, I immediately think:  Joe Greene

      There are 4x roms in the zip - actually, only two games (ROM 1 and ROM 2), but see below for reasoning for the extra two roms
      the zip also contains a basic readme, and a png image of a playbook key


      View attachment: Street Tecmo 2013 v1 also with no p2.zip


      View attachment: tsb street var shots 1.png

      Documentation

      There are two ROMs, each with 16 NFL teams.
      The only difference between the ROMs are the teams/rosters/names, etc. and the color of the endzones.

      Based on Jstout's "CIFL 7-on-7" NES Tecmo Super Bowl ROM
      Upgraded plays (enhanced for the street)
      50 yard "field"

      COM v MAN (you can play as player 2 if you set up your emulator)
      Competitive COM for challenging Season fun

      No "Out of Bounds" - you can run into the walls

      New Halftime and New Halftime Song
      Reduced Cutscreens

      Game plays very fast (almost every variable is sped up greatly)
      Turnovers and scoring are common
      No punts (just "kicker")
      Countless Graphic changes

      In-game playbook changing
      Cool new Uniforms (some throwbacks in there, too)
      12-game season with 8-team playoffs

      "Heroes" - it's like a mini-game
      I have set up the heroes from the original Tecmo Super Bowl game
      AFC and NFC - using their original ratings (although some are decreased because it's played as pro-bowl game)
      but, it has a totally different feel and challenge than the other modern "street" teams

      Pass Accuracy is completion/int variable
      KR return at their own Max Speed
      Player 2 condition indicator fixed

      No pass-defender auto-dive
      Quicker dives for defenders

      AI hacks
      Passing Game Hacks

      Bruddog's OL/DL Differential (more random popcorn in the trenches)

      HP Hack (MAN v MAN "popcorn" and/or "mash")
      Also, HP is quantized to a scale of "0 to 3 extra presses" that are added to grapple counter)
      6-25 HP = 0 extra press
      31-50 HP = 1 extra press
      56-75 HP = 2 extra press
      81-100 HP = 3 extra press

      -----
      EXTRA ("no p2" versions): the (main) 1st version of TSB Street posted on 9-5-12 has a very cool hack (thanks xplozv) that lets you play as the 2nd player (2nd side) vs COM (also in season mode).
      A requirement is that you need to have your emulator set up such that you have control of the 2nd player controller (or if using an actual NES, a controller in port 2!) . In the emulator I use, I have them both programmed to the same controller/buttons.
      If you use an emulator that will not allow you to program or play as a 2nd player controller, I have provided a set of roms with the additional "no p2" characters in the rom filename. this "no p2" will play just like the original TSB - MAN will always be player one side when playing COM.

      Therefore I have updated the zip to include these "no p2" versions. I also updated the readme in the zip. No other changes have been made.
      --

      We must thank the following, because this rom would not be possible without their past or present help:
      jstout, bruddog, cxrom, bad_al, average tsb player, elway, knobbe, bodom, and xplozv

      (jstout did not have any direct hand in the making of this ROM, but we thought we should credit him because we used his CIFL 7-on-7 ROM as our base)

      --

      it's a party, jerk. so enjoy it.
