Wow!  You guys have all chosen different combinations. (Not bad, for an 8-pony race.)


Classy stuff, gents...



I don't know:  I'm leaning all homerville;


but then I'll have to take into account "matchups,"

and go into my algorithmic fantasyland

Oh, come on.  We need the MG breakdown of these games.  Can't stop now.

I think you pretty much have 1st place wrapped up in the pick'em.  Over the past 8 weeks, I have picked my games on the site on Tuesday and haven't looked back.  I go with my gut only, set it and forget it.  That being said, I can't remember if I picked BUF/JAX and I won't go back to check (the other 3 games I'm sure of).  Whatever is in Yahoo is official for me.  And... if I know buck, he would never base his picks on someone else's picks.  buck is too proud for that sh*t.   Nobody else can catch you.

I hate to say Chiefs but Arrowhead is a tough place to play.  A tough place that also isn't experiencing the ultimate Jack Frost Arctic Attack that's happening on the East coast.


Give me Chiefs, Rams, Panthers, and Jags.

Alright.  Though if anything, I'm pretty much going to stick with the home team all throughout.  Other than perhaps the Falcons pulling away with an upset, none of the home teams actually feel like dominant super teams in the Wild Card round that would very likely win on the road.  But here's the rub:


Tennessee Titans vs. Kansas City Chiefs:  Of all the weekly picks I could make, this one appears to be the most clear to me.  I honestly think that the Kansas City Chiefs are going to win this game.  Yes, teams like the Tennessee Titans have won the Super Bowl before.  Heck, they exceeded all expectations and managed to get there in the past.  Looking at you, 2001 New England Patriots.  The problem, however, comes from the coaching staff, and Mark Mularkey is so uninspiring and pedestrian that the only reason he still has a head coaching job and probably still have one after their season is over is because they did their job in the season finale and barely escaped the horrors of an NFL collapse.  That, and he is by default a vast improvement over Ken Wisenhunt, whose claim to fame was riding the curtails of Kurt Warner on their way to an Arizona Cardinals Super Bowl berth.  At least Murlarkey coached a pair of 9-win seasons for the Titans, just like Ben O'Brien before this year.


Atlanta Falcons vs. LA Rams:  This is probably the hardest game to pick this weekend since both teams are actually really, really good.  And yes, the Falcons have had their struggles, but mostly against other playoff teams (Patriots, Bills, Vikings, and regular season splits against Saints and Panthers).  The Rams are young and inexperienced in the postseason berth, in spite a likely League MVP year for Todd Gurley provided Tom Brady doesn't come adding a third trophy to his list (and presumably killing any hope of the Patriots winning the Super Bowl, but I digress--seriously media experts, if you don't want to see the Patriots complete their dynasty with a 6th Lombardi trophy, jinx the team with a League MVP for Brady).  The Falcons, meanwhile, are the defending NFC Champions, and have a much clearer path to the postseason than the Rams do (all because the Saints and Panthers decided to both eat a bag of excrement last week, thus ensuring the 3-Seed that they wanted to avoid at all cost).  The Falcons probably had one of the toughest schedules of any team in the NFL, as they had to duel it out against more playoff teams and contenders than any other team, and other than most of the teams that ultimately made it, had managed to defeat every single one of them.  I think the tough call is based more on who I think is the stronger team, and ultimately, I think the Rams have the better overall team than the Falcons do.


Buffalo Bills vs. Jacksonville Jaguars:  Congratulations, Buffalo Bills for ending your miserable 17-year postseason drought.  Same to you, for ending your 10-year drought, Jacksonville Jaguars (who haven't even won the division crown in 17 years, either).  Anyways, the only reason the Bills might end up pulling away with a major upset here is because Blake Bortles is still the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback, and is by far the biggest detriment to his own team.  Both teams have lethal defenses, with the Jaguars probably having the edge here in the pass rush.  Even though the Bills' offense is built similarly to the Tennessee Titans, who surprisingly match up well against the Jaguars, the Bills have to make do without 30% of their starting offense.  In other words, no Shady McCoy this week.  Even if he does come in, he won't be 100% due to a sprained ankle last week.  Honestly, I probably want the Bills to win it all this year simply because it would make for an incredible story.  But I know for a fact that outside of the Titans, the Bills are the least impressive-looking playoff team by far.  At least you had to gruel out your season until the bitter end where you needed a miracle in order to get in.  Still, the safe pick would have to be Jacksonville over Buffalo, here.  Then again, if the Jaguars and Chiefs both win their games, then perhaps there'd be a chance of New England getting eliminated right before the Super Bowl.  Because even if the Bills win here, they would still get obliterated by the New England Patriots, just like what happened the last couple of times the two teams played.


Carolina Panthers vs. New Orleans Saints:  The Saints have swept the Panthers during the regular season.  And while there has been a precedent in the past of road playoff teams that got swept by their division rivals getting back at 'em in the playoffs (looking at you, catalysts for 18-1), overall, the Panthers don't seem like the most reliable picks.  The upside is that if the Panthers do get past the Saints, the road back to the Super Bowl suddenly becomes clear to them.  The only teams they might need to worry about then are the Rams and Falcons.  They can take on a Wentzless Eagles squad even in freezing cold Philadelphia, and they're one of the few teams not at all afraid of Minnesota's defense.  However, the same can be said for the Saints, with the only difference being the concern of having to get past the Vikings.  Overall, the safe pick would be the Saints here.

Falcons are tired of 25-point margins, I tell you ... 5a51172a5abf2_Tecmo2018_rev0larATLsim.thumb.png.f35dae199dbaf156d420218c8e23118f.png



^^^This game simulation is absolutely perfect except for one thing......................EVERYTHING.  Add a "2" in front of Gurley's NO. & YDS. totals and that would be a hell of a lot more accurate........Infact 26 for 250 is something that a 2 week rested fresh Todd Gurley is more than likely going to put up.  I don't see Atlanta havin' any answer for him.  It's gonna be a clinic.

Add to that, Falcons are tired of OT:  5a5125c27ce70_SBlueman-TSB2017-v1.09larATLlegitOT.thumb.png.2023ee628e9eed61c588816d3271f8ba.png

ANOTHER MysteryRom.


LAR got the ball first (in OT).  3-and-out.  TwentySIXTEEN mvp marched his team down the field, and threw the game-winning score

A bit disappointed about how the game went, though i was really pissed about Cyprien not getting flagged for his helmet to helmet hit on Kelce while Kelce was going down.



Cyprien is a piece of crap...  As a Jags fan, I was glad we got rid of him.  Dirty player and not very good either.

      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
      Oakland Raiders @ Miami Dolphins
      Denver Broncos @ Baltimore Ravens
      Cincinnati Bengals @ Carolina Panthers
      New York Giants @ Houston Texans
      Tennessee Titans @ Jacksonville Jaguars
      San Francisco 49ers @ Kansas City Chiefs
      Los Angeles Chargers @ Los Angeles Rams

      New England Patriots @ Detroit Lions
      Pittsburgh Steelers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
      So come on in!
      @gojiphen malor
      @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


      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.
