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

In all seriousness, I'm not gonna tell anybody anything.

 

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.

MysteryRom.

 

^^^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

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.

      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.

      Congratulations, Philadelphia Eagles for ending your 57-year championship drought and taking Super Bowl LII.
       
      Might as well start this new thread for a new season, since Maynard seems to have vanished off the face of the earth at around the time of the Super Bowl.  Hope he's doing well.
       
      So discuss the current NFL season here.
