NFL 2018-2019 Season Discussion

^ Literally the only play against the Patriots worth remembering as a Chargers fan from yesterday's game. Kudos to Rivers for the look-off.

"Everyone thinks we suck." ~ The G.O.A.T. post-game

 

There are few things I enjoy more than watching all of the prognosticators continue to get taken down by a living legend. Tom Brady and Bill Belichick persist in making fools of many in the sports media, and a few outspoken members of this forum. I'm willing to mail a box of issues to anyone whose team was ousted yesterday.

 

Can this Patriots team beat this Chiefs in K.C.? Don't know about that. But I'm going to have a good time watching the game. And if they do win, you can fully expect I'm going to be on this board, in this thread, trashing all of the fools who have earned it. You know who you are.

@gojiphen malor , your emotional state before Eagles at Saints:  Describe it

@Bodom , your emotional state before Chargers at Patriots:  Describe it

@kamphuna8 , your emotional paradigm before Cowboys at Rams ...  Deconstruct it

@TecmoSuperFan , your emotional state before Colts at K.C.:  Transcribe it

 

Thank you

 

(But happy new year.)

I'm sorry I failed. I was full of giddy anxiousness. And nervous. But mostly excited for the spectacle. I could practically smell the cannabis through the TV (or was that coming from somewhere else?)

 

Aghast at the gashing is the best I can describe now. The Ringer described how the Rams O Line were thoroughly more prepared to wreak havoc on the unsuspecting Cowboys D Line, and the 273 yards rushing... well it hurt. #Hurting

 

Glad they came back, needed one more stop, and boom, Goff with a carry on a 4th down and longer than 3 or 4 to seal it. Where have I seen this before? (Think 2015 Cal UW game, Goff helps Cal upset the Huskies with a QB Keep on 4th and like 4?) BOTH EVENTS SUCKED CAL'S BALLS

Whoever calls the OT coinflips for the Pats should end up in their HOF. Brady 3-0 in those situations and the other team never got the ball.

That would be Matt Slater.

 

I hear he calls "heads" everytime, because that's what his dad (HOFer, Jackie... former - 20-year - RAMS OT) did.

 

Speaking of HOF, though, there should be some kind of a "special" HOF, for Special Teamers;  because, younger Slater would surely be in it

 

I just-noticed that 11-year veteran, Matt has already equaled Pops in Pro Bowl nods (7) & overall All-Pro selections (5)

^ Ok?

 

Do you think the Pats defense was going to stop the Chiefs in OT?  Seemed pretty unlikely. Winning that flip was a big deal!

Remember, this article dropped BEFORE the Conference "Championships:"

 

https://touchdownwire.usatoday.com/2019/01/18/cbs-super-bowl-patrios-v-rams-rams-patriots-ratings/

 

Here, I came across this interesting Monument:

 

https://www.debate.org/opinions/is-the-nfl-rigged/arguments/CADF552D-BB3E-4047-878A-D8A97D8B52CA

 

(Never knew that anybody else - besides myself - was intriggued, to say the least, by the timing of New Orleans' 1st SB Win, post-Katrina; and the "Patriots'," post-9/11... till now.)

 

 

Some thoughts

 

- What a shame it is that Home-field "advantage" is only so for some teams. Because, it obviously wasn't for either K.C or N.O. Better luck shooting for a #2 seed next year. (Nah, that's not it)

 

- The "NFL" thrives on controversy; so, the non-call on a certain Nickell's obvious pass-interference and helmet-to-helmet infraction? They actually welcome the "fall-out" (attention) from that

 

- RAMS1PATRIOTS1

 

This is supposed to be "entertainment"!? I won't be tuning in; and no one I know will. Bore U.S. off our ass, nfl !!

No Issac Bruce or Tecmo great Steve Atwater. You just have to wonder if they would have given him better stats in Tecmo would he have been more of a legend and a couple more votes would have gone his way....

      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.
