NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

Recommended Posts

I'm still making the prediction that the Jaguars and Vikings are going to win tomorrow's games.  My dad picked the Patriots and Eagles to win.  At the very least, I suspect that at least one of these games is going to go to the road team.  It simply makes sense.

Then, your N.E yahoo-pick don't count, gordan:  can't play it both ways.

I found out that Jacksonville plays Zone D, which was why I ultimately changed my pick.

#39, gipson:  YOU'RE A FRIGGIN' DUMB-ASS ...

 

On that last N.E touchdown, at the back of the endzone, with Amendola's foot just hovering there right in front of you, all you had to do was grab it and push him toward out-of-bounds/he wouldn't have gotten two feet down!!  You MIGHT have then been able to hold them to a FG/tie-game, at that point...  But, you'd rather just WATCH the game pass you by.

Damn, fuckers.

I must have missed this:

(I wasn't watching then, actually.)

 

I actually thought it was a bad call (fumble).  Lewis looked like he regained possession on the way to the ground, then the ground caused the fumble.

OK - here's my Super Bowl prediction (this is original... if it's been said somewhere else, I am not aware of it).  To continue with the "underdog" role, Philly NEEDS to have Vince Papale as their honorary captain!  And the Pats need to counter with Mark Wahlberg, who played Papale in the movie.  This needs to happen!

I just wanted to login real quick to let all of the Patriots haters/doubters/snowflakes know that you can all go f*ck yourselves.

 

That's it.
 

Oh, and that you haters/doubters/terrible prognosticators can all eat sh*t.

Really, that's it. I know that is a lot of information to digest, so let me write it again in list form, if that would be helpful...
 

1.) F*ck yourselves

2.) Eat sh*t

Really, truly, that's all I have to say.

 

But then again, as I'm thinking about it more--while you may fall into the hater/doubter/terrible prognosticator bucket; you might not know it. So, please let me help you with that as well with these four simple questions...

- Did you at one point this season suggest that Tom Brady is falling off a cliff?

- Did you consistently rank the Patriots out of the #1 spot in your fake power rankings?

- Did you consistently suggest that clearly inferior teams were on par with, if not better than the Patriots?

- Did you at some point believe that [insert the mediocre quarterback of your chosen team] would outplay Thomas Edward Patrick Brady, Jr.?

 

If you fall in the above line of questions, then you may A.) F*ck yourselves and B.) Eat sh*t. I leave the order in which you fulfill these responsibilities to your own discretion. You can either eat your own sh*t, and follow that by penetrating yourselves. Or, you can get right to penetrating yourselves, and cap that afternoon delight off by eating a good piece of sh*t -- almost like an after-coitus cigarette.

Really, the choice is yours, and believe me when I say it: you've earned every bit.

I'm now a Patriot hater...  Of course I'm a Jaguars fan  :)

 

But seriously, how can the Pats have a single (ONE) penalty called the entire game against them.  I saw several New England holds on offense and defense that weren't called, including on a Jaguars 3rd down play...  But the officials are all over the Jags on plays like the Bouye "interference" where Cooks left-hooks him in the helmet...  Ohhhhhhkay.

 

I'm starting to believe the conspiracy theories!!

I suppose perception is everything.  If you want the Pats to lose, you'll see things that way for sure.  I get it. 

 

The Jags played a physical game (and it almost worked for them).  But when you play with fire you may get burnt.  I noticed a lot of contact in the secondary and most of it wasn't called.  Holding, hooking arms, etc... especially on Cooks.  I don't think the Pats played this way at all, hence 1 penalty call.  Plus half of the penalties on JAX were the mental error kind... false start, illegal shift, delay of game... But again, different rooting interest, different perception.

 

Also, the Jags took out Gronk in the 1st half and still couldn't win (guess KC can't use the Kelce excuse anymore).  Maybe if they don't helmet to helmet there the Pats don't score at the end of the 1st half? - but either way.  Not to mention NE made a ton of mistakes... 5 or 6 dropped balls, 2 dropped INTs.  The door was wide open for JAX and they couldn't capitalize.

Geez, yak:  u sound like a real Eagles fan...  Fitting, because you'll be a fan soon.

 

 

But, let's face it [translation: stop being in denial, you homerlicious, hypersensitive "pride"-boy], at least one REAL football team won - in legitimate fashion - this weekend.

Oh, and there was this play...  Myles Jack never touched after stripping the ball from Lewis--  would have been a TD but of course they blew the whistle!

 

http://www.businessinsider.com/jags-fumble-recovery-blown-dead-by-whistle-2018-1

In my book he was down by contact. And I saw someone else suggest that Lewis regained possession and should have been down before the strip, but no, barely pinning the ball to your hip after getting it stripped doesn't mean possession.  I thought that was reffed appropriately. Watching the game as an interested fan of neither team, I thought it was reffed well. Sure the number was a discrepancy 6 pens to 1. The timing of some of those sucked. Jacksonville came out firing but you gotta finish. I agree with Rich Eisen in this sentiment in sports. You gotta play better than the refs ref.

Yeah, maybe.  But the fact that people like to discuss reffing instead of coaching, player execution, etc is old and lame.

 

 

Like how Danny Amendola has been the most clutch Pats player for the past 4 years and played an insanely good game.

Or how the Jaguars poor play calling didn't help their cause.

Amendola is incredible. He was kept to only 50% of offensive plays this year (prob to keep him on the field in January) The Jags blew this too like you said. Didn't they come out of a timeout before a big 3rd down and then got a delay of game. THAT CAN'T HAPPEN!

      Week 2's now in the books.  Now it's time to pick the Week 3 games.  I'm gonna follow schedule from Tecmonster's 2018-2019 rom from now on, so here's what I've got:
       
      New York Jets @ Cleveland Browns
      New Orleans Saints @ Atlanta Falcons
      Green Bay Packers @ Washington Redskins
      Indianapolis Colts @ Philadelphia Eagles
      Buffalo Bills @ Minnesota Vikings

      So come on in!
       
      @TecmoSuperFan
      @bruddog
      @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.
