Final Divisional Capsule Preview

 

Mount Baker Division

1. COWBOYS1 Dallas Cowboys : Owner : kamphuna8 aka turbohuna4eva! - Few teams run the football like the Cowboys. Running backs Dalton Hilliard and Reuben Mayes and burly fullback Craig "Ironhead" Heyward are hard-nosed ball carriers that keep the first down markers moving. Michael Irvin is the deep threat, while Kelvin Martin is the possession receiver. Tight end Jay Novacek is one of the best pass-catching tight ends in the league. Greg Townsend, Howie Long, and Bob Golic compose one of the most formidable defensive lines in the CFT. The Cowboys have arguably the best linebackers in the league in Lawrence Taylor, Carl Banks, Pepper Johnson, and Gary Reasons.

2. CHIEFS1 Kansas City Chiefs : Owner : manyo aka madmanyo720 aka madmanyo360 aka Blue Luigi - The Chiefs have a lot of confidence in their gutsy strong-armed quarterback Bubby Brister. At 6-5, 274 pounds, tight end Eric Green is the largest deep threat in the league. Regardless of who's playing quarterback, the Chiefs' offense will move the football. The running and receiving skills of Bo Jackson, Marcus Allen, and Steve Smith keep opposing defenses off balance. Burt Grossman and Lee Williams do a fine job of pressuring the quarterback. Defensive lineman Cortez Kennedy is excellent against the run and the pass. Linebackers Rufus Porter and Dave Wyman make good reads and always find the ball. Strong safety Bubba McDowell leads K.C.'s "Air Patrol" secondary.

3. CARDINALS1 Phoenix Cardinals : Owner : ~ Tailback King ~ aka The Rida! - Quarterback Troy Aikman is the cornerstone of an explosive young offense and has top receivers Mark Clayton and Mark Duper and tight end Ferrell Edmunds. Running backs Johnny Johnson and Anthony Thompson make up one of the finest young backfields in the league.  Defensive linemen Tony Woods, Jacob Green, and Joe Nash are excellent against the run and the pass. Linebackers Clay Matthews and Mike Johnson are good at stopping both the run and the pass. Strong safety Tim McDonald hits like a linebacker and covers receivers like a cornerback.

4. CHARGERS1 San Diego Chargers : Owner : Polish Rifle - The developing Blair Thomas and rejuvenated Freeman McNeil propel the Jets' offense. Wide receiver Robert Clark will catch anything he gets his hands on. Defensive End Bruce Smith is a dominating presence who directly affects opposing offensive game plans. Charles Haley is a fearsome pass rusher who will line up at defensive end or linebacker.

@kamphuna8.........what kindof a team breakdown was THAT!!!!!!!!???  Make no mistake, Johnny Johnson is the bricks, morter, & cornerstone of this team........Aikmen just needs to do his job and the rest is history.  (Promising young rookie my a$$........he's WAY past that)......Maybe if ya said "the Cardinals posses the Darth Vader of Tailbacks", that woulda' been more to the point and in the realm of reality.

Whats the point of drafting Duper, Clayton, Edmunds, and Jensen if your going to focus on the run, Couldn't you have gotten better LB's instead?  Where they just available that far down in the draft and you had to take them?

CFT 2 Conference Preview - Clark Conference

 

This is the first of two Cascadia Effin Tecmo conference previews for season 2. A reminder to the reader that we drafted 7 different tandems in a standard, non-snake draft that included a salary cap. The tandems included QBs (x2), RBs (x4), WR/TE (x6) OL (x5), DL (x3), LB (x4) and DB (x4). Rules for drafted tandems include that no OL, or defensive players can be moved from their original Tecmo Super Bowl rom alignment. Also, WRs and TEs are not allowed to run the ball unless it is a designed WR reverse play. RBs are allowed to play any position. Both RBs and TEs can be used as a tight end. Standard original rom season condition and injury rules apply here as well. Conditions change at the end of each quarter, and the 4th quarter condition of a game carries over to the 1st quarter of the next game (thanks to @bruddog's immaculate hack work :-)  . Injuries also function the same as in an original rom season. If a player gets injured in a given game, he is out for the remainder of that game and at the beginning of the next game being played, the player has a 25% chance of coming back. If the player does not come back for the first game after the injury, he then has a 50% chance of coming back for the 2nd game after the injury. If the player does not return from injury for the 2nd game, then the player will 100% come back from the injury in the 3rd game started after the game in which he/she (that one's for you Chris Evert) got injured. 

 

This conference preview will be in order of preseason predicted order of finish. The rules for making the playoffs are as follows. The top 5 teams in a conference according to record, with tie breaks following the original rom formula of using highest point differential, are all slotted into the top 5 slots in the playoff bracket that you see in the schedule. The 6th seed is determined by one or two play in games depending on the conference. Clark conference has 8 teams, so the first play in game will be between the home 7th seeded team and the away 8th seeded team. Winner of that game plays as the away team vs the 6th seed for the last entry in the playoff bracket. In the #Lewis conference, the 7th seed plays at the 6th seed for the last entry in the playoff bracket. This will result in a 12 team bracket that follows the mechanics of the original Tecmo Super Bowl rom's bracket, including a couple of it's idiosyncrasies, which include : 1. The AFC (left side) of the bracket always ends up with the home team in the Super Bowl (regardless of record), and 2. The Conference Championships have a bit of a glitch in them in that the top seed's half of the bracket (represented as having the bottom bye team in the game's Playoff Bracket) actually plays as the road team in the Conference Championships no matter what, in both conferences. What this means is that no matter what the matchup of seeds in the conference championships, the team coming from the top half of the bracket (either the 2 seed that got the bye, or 4th or 5th seed team if they beat the 2 seed, will have home field in the conference championship game no matter what. And the 1 seed, 3 seed, or 6 seed that wins the bottom half of the bracket will always be the away team in the conference championship. 

 

Enough with the logistics and make with the preview already KAMP!

 

OK here goes. 

 

Clark Conference (with projected seeds)

 

1. 49ERS1 San Francisco 49ers : Owner :  @gripsmoke The 49ers have weapons for days on both sides of the ball. Starting with the offense, Grip has the most dynamically dangerous offense in the game. He's got Elway who has the wheels and the cannon that is just so rare in any quarterback. However, that PC rating tho... 31 PC is gonna rear its ugly head at some points during the season, especially when the receiver set is not a high REC group. That WR set is a high MS group though. The OG rom Raiders receivers have no match for overall speed, a fine pairing with a cannon like Elway's. But that's not all when it comes to dangerous speed. To add to that passing game arsenal, the 49ers also threaten CFT defenses on the ground with one Emmitt Smith (and his backups). Stopping the 49ers in CFT season 2 is gonna be a problem. Opposing teams are almost going to have to rely on the tecmoization of the game to garner stops on this squad, through Elway's inaccuracy to fumbles to either Elway or Emmitt, or just plain fumbles. You may think, well with all that offense, surely his defense can't be anything to write home about... FALSE! The 49ers boast that tecmo legendary NT Unicorn, Bob Nelson, of the 69rp variety, as well as the secondary of the OG Rom Giants, with more than enough speed and INT to get the needed stop or two to win with that offense. Andre Tippett and the rest of his Patriot LB Corps round out the defense, and when all else fails, a nod of the cap to Lucifer may swing special teams the Niners way as Hail Satan handles the kicking duties. And have no fear 49ers fans. If you are ever in a rut and need to make a Punter play, Miss Congeniality is always on call...

 

Bottom line: With so much speed across both sides of the ball, as well as Grip's tecmo skillz, the 49ers look to be the favorites in the Clark conference.

Best asset: Speed across the board.

Worst liability: the dreaded drops from a low PC QB

 

2. OILERS1 Houston Oilers : Owner : @fairfensheeding aka Randulous aka the Pasco Fiasco aka callmefairf - The Oilers and owner Randi put all their eggs in the baskets of two of the more powerful units in Tecmo Super Bowl, the Rams passing game and the Bengals SS David Fulcher (with some help from USFL vet FS Barney Bussey #lewis). The Oilers will be hard to stop with the potent passing offense of Jim Everett to his OG Rom WR crew featuring Henry L O Ellard and Willie "Flipper" Anderson. And yes, Fulcher can oftem function as a one man defense, ESPECIALLY if he goes into one of those tears in Excellent many quarters in a row. The lack of a running game threat will serve two purposes. One, teams will seldom pick run vs the Oilers' offense, and Two, Randi should run at will without having to worry about anyone picking run much.  However, while with conditions, the Oilers might have some 44ms rbs at their disposal throughout the season, this offense will still be mostly one dimensional. And on defense, the Fulcher and Bussey combination will really get minimal help from therest of their defense, as the other 9 Oiler defenders are all 31 rp. And if you have a high HP RB or even TE in Excellent? Well, it might be time to bust out Randi's favorite GIF, you betta getcha popcorn ready. 

 

Bottom Line: One dimensional on both sides of the ball, but those are some tasty dimensions.

Best assett: Everett to his OG RAMS targets El Oh Ellard and Flipper.

Worst liability: No RB or front 7 talent to threaten the opposition, pre conditions of course. 

 

3. SEAHAWKS1 Seattle Seahawks : Owner : Invader aka @invader_star64 - The Seahawks channeled their brethren expansion team the Buccaneers in a large chunk of the CFT 2 draft, as both Vinny Greenballs, I mean Testaverde and Wayne "Freakin" Haddix are CFT 2 Seahawks. The Hawks and Invader rounded out his offense with the RBs from the OG RAMS, including Cleveland Gary and dual threat Buford McGee, as well as Al Toon, Rob Moore, and USFL vet JoJo Townsell #lewis. On Defense, looking from the 1st level on, it looks like poop on top of poop, until you get to the secondary and see Haddix and his merry band of one eyed Buc Ball Snatchers. Invader has the weapons on offense to move the ball as needed, and Haddix is another one of those potential one man defenses. Similar to the Oilers, there isn't much else help on the defensive side of the ball outside of the top two DB options. 

 

Bottom Line: The Seahawks are similar in constitution to the Oilers with a potent offense and a veritable one man defense. They have more balance on offense with 3 44ms and up RBs, yet lack the speed that the Oilers have in their two biggest weapons, barring condition love. With more options however, there is more opportunity to overcome injury hate or garner condition love elevating a solid player to an outstanding player. 

 

Best Asset: Wayne's World and Vinny's Wheels

Worst Liability: Vinny's Noodle and a Front Zero defense. 

 

4. BUCCANEERS1 Tampa Bay Buccaneers : Owner : @SirTed - The Buccaneers rocked the CFT 2 world with their first pick of the draft... one Cool Joe Montana. Upon news of that pick, the rest of the CFT 2 world had to be wondering a : How can we stop Joe Cool, and b : what else can the Buccaneers afford after spending so much on Montana? Well to answer part A... ya can't. As for part B, the answer is some AC (apropos with us Cascadia folk forgoing spring altogether after the long winter and jumping right into that summer heat) as well as a sneaky good defense that doesn't wow you at first, but has some potential to thwart opposing offenses from scoring. Montana to AC has got to be the number one QB WR duo in the league for CFT season 2. Montana also can chuck it to other high REC options like Hassan Jones, Steve Jordan, and John L Williams. The running game is pedestrian at best, with either Chris Warren or James Jones likely to get the bulk of carries depending on conditions. On defense, the CHI DL has a decent DL DB hybrid in  Richard Dent, who will function as both the teams top DL and top DB with his 44 INT rating. Then there's Leslie O'Neal to consider. O'Neal can cause quite a ruckus mucking up both the running and passing game of opposing offenses, as well as being a constant threat to block any FGs or XPs. 

 

Bottom Line: Ted laid down a Sonic Boom to the league in selecting Joe Montana as his QB and formed a solid team around him. I'm guessing Ted's going to be a little rusty but that won't matter once we get a few games into the season. 

Best Asset : The Coolness factor aka Joe Cool to AC

Worst Liability: The secondary from the OG Packers, who all take a back seat to Richard Dent as best Buc DB

 

5. BEARS1 Chicago Bears : Owner : @boogiewithstu - This was a tough call, but for 5th, The Bears mauled me with their first pick overall, a unit I was eyeballing and hoping would fall to me, the Bears RB attack. Neal Anderson, a stud RB AND WR. Johnny Bailey, almost the same stud status. Not to mention, an H back in Brad Muster that can crush and catch with the best of them. A sneaky good pick, the INDY WR group, give QBs Rosey and Tupa some solid options. Rosey has the wheels, but also the noodle. A MaJJik lite if you will. On D, Just having Mayhew and Darrell Green would have been plenty, but they also threw in a solid DL with a couple of usable parts, something Stu can and will do to thwart any dynamic offensive attack.

 

Bottom Line : Stu had more offense this year than in CFT 1 and it should count for something. He still has enough firepower on D to be as stingy as he normally is, and with Neal Anderson and Johnny Bailey... watch out CFT...

Best Asset: Bears RBs and their potent versatility

Worst Liability: Rosey. Will he be Rosey the Riveter or Rosey the Ruiner...

 

6. GIANTS1 New York Giants : Owner : Joey B aka JoeyHoneyB - I had inclinations to have the Giants as high as 4th on this list, as Joey has a team I like a lot. The New York Football Giants kicked off the draft with taking ATL RBs. Bobby Humphrey proved in CFT 1 that the CFT world is his oyster. Throw in Rodney Peete and Andre Ware with a healthy dose of Sterling Sharpe targets and you have a healthy wealthy offensive attack. On defense, the Giants have Jerry Ball and James Francis to disrupt things up front, and Dennis Smith and Steve Atwater have the tools to be able to slow down most offensive passing games. However, there are some stupid good QB WR duos in this conference, and Joey still needs to show he can garner attention as a force to be reckoned with in the CFT. 

 

Bottom Line: This is a team to watch. Barring injuries the Giants are going to surprise some people. 

Best Asset: Bobby Humphrey it's a Bobby Bob World in CFT if season 1 is to be believed. 

Worst Liability: Offensive lack of depth. If Bobby or Sterling goes down, things get really one dimensional. 

 

7. LIONS1 Detroit Lions : Owner : @TheProfessor - I really like this Lions squad. MaJJik Man was the only starting quarterback in CFT 1 to not throw an INT, and he had some stupid CCs so it wasn't just good QB play. And then there's Thurmal. This team will go as far as Thurmal can take them. He can run and he can catch... with the best of them all. To round out the offense, Marv Cook and Irving Fryar give MaJJik Man some confidence when he's slinging the rock around willy nilly. On defense, Chris Doleman will be a problem for a few OL in this league, and the Cowboys DBs will provide plenty of speed, if not INT to help get stops for the Motown Maulers. 


Bottom Line: The Lions have the weapons, barring injury. Can the professor use them in a way that will curry the tecmo gods favor? 

 

Best Asset : Thurmal

Worst Liability : Lack of offensive depth

 

8. DOLPHINS1 Miami Dolphins - Owner : LarryBird33 - At the bottom of the rankings, mostly due to owner's newbness and not having had a chance to lock horns with CFT vets or other Tecmo diehards. Much of this season will be tough due to a steep learning curve, but this Dolphin Phan should benefit from a solid draft to help keep within shooting distance of most teams til the tecmo end. Dan Marino, a perfect first pick for this squad. Very forgiving for the inevitable mistake passes that will happen when upping the competition level. Fantastic Value with the Redskins RBs and Cards WR/TEs, as there are potential threats across the board. Need a 50ms RB? Byner or USFL stud Kelvin Bryant in Good (#lewis). High Rec target? Ricky Proehl. Need TBK as a hype man? Ya got Ernie Muthaphukka Jones on your roster. Need some HP to get some Reddenbacher action? Gerald Riggs is your answer. The SF OL also provides Marino with the time his 6ms legs will probably need. On defense... Sean Jones, a stud at DL, Tim Harris, a stud at LB 1 that can affect running games and block kicks, and then the solid if unspectacular Chiefs secondary. With conditions, either of the corners Ross or #Lewis can handle their own. 

 

Bottom Line: Larrybird33 will have fun with this team. Dan the Man is his Man in real life. The rest of the squad is well put together. 

 

Best Asset: Marino and his laser cannon

Worst Liability: Owner skillset is noobulous and there isn't a ton of speed to take advantage of Marino's gun, barring condition love of course.

Here goes #Lewis Conference with predicted seeds... See previous post for important playoff and tiebreak and bracket info. 

 

#Lewis Conference (with projected seeds)

 

1. CHIEFS1 Kansas City Chiefs : Owner : @manYo720 aka madmanyo360 aka manyo aka Blue Luigi - I got one word for the reason the Chiefs are projected to be top seed, and manyo has already got it trending in the tborg and twittersphere... unstoppaBo . Right after Sir Ted laid the Montana Boom on the league, adding Cool Joe to a list of STUD QBs drafted in the first round including Marino and QB Browns, Manyo splooged all over his discord as he typed in the 2 letters signifying his impending dominance of the CFT. BO...  The BO BOOM! Not only adding the inimitable Bo Jackson to his CHEEFS roster, but also Marcus Allen, a veritable 2 way threat that will stretch the field when Bo doesn't get the totes. After that amazing 1st pick, it remained to be seen how Manyo would craft a team around Bo, and crafty he was. In round 2, Manyo went Big Swinging Dick Dick all over the CFT landscape, selecting the Oilers DBs. Bo and Dick Dick on the same squad??? Watch out CFT! The craftiness that ensued is sure to incite self doubt in most CHEEF opponents. The Chiefs boast Bubby as the gunslinger, combined with the Steelers WR/TEs, it's not that imposing, but Marcus is out there, and while 25PC to 31REC is gonna rear its ugly head... I predict it will hit here often enough to keep defenses on their heels as they try to account for Bo and his jangles. The sneaky great pick here though, is that Cincy OL, which will keep Bo and Bubby clean enough for them to inflict their pain. And don't forget Eric Green, the largest deep threat in the league at 6'-5" and 274 pounds. To add to the Dick Dick Defense plan, Kansas City has a couple of relatively speedy options at DL and the Ruf and his Portermen including the Tezmanian Devil. Let's get real though, Bo Knows. And Bo Goes. The only thing that can stop this Chiefs offense are the Tecmo Gods. Will they favor Bo with the health he was not afforded in real life? Will they show that PC + REC is just a number when it comes to making the open Bubby strike connect? Tune in July 28 and find out. 

 

Bottom Line : Bo Dickley gonna be shouting at the victory confirming Blue Recap Screens "You Can't Judge a Bo Book by Its Cover" and "Hey. Bo Dickley!" followed with "I'm a Man!" as he "Brings it (Home) to Jerome". Watch out #Lewis conference... There's gonna be a reckoning. 

 

Best Asset : Bo Bo Bo BO BO BO BO BO BO! OFFSET BO with CINCY ROAD GRADERS!!!!
Worst Liability: Depth, Drops and Injuries. Will Bo stay away from the injury bug. Will Bubby be a Blister in the Sun rather than a Brister on the Run? Is Doink going to be the CHEEF curse word of the CFT 2 season?

 

2. RAIDERS1 Los Angeles Raiders : Owner : @XtraLargent aka Donkey Tales aka Donkey Dee - The Raiders are looking to improve upon their 3rd place finish in the inaugural season of CFT, and this squad looks like it will give Donkey Dee a great shot at it. While the Raiders started their CFT 2 draft with Kenny O with a little Eason on the side, the real splash came all the way in the 4th round with another epic Splooge Selection, as he typed in the pick of the San Fran WRs. O'Brien to Jerry, John and Brent is gonna suck for a lot of CFT opponents in season 2. To top that off, the defense is legit. With tons of versatility which can be crucial in the CFT crucible, the Raiders boast the likes of Reggie White, The Dome Patrol, and Eddie Friggin Anderson. Speed and power reign supreme here. The Raiders DBs might lack in INT rating, but Eddie's 50 INT along with his speed and hitting is gonna be a terror, while Reggie, Rickey, Vaughan, Pat and Sam are all throwing their bodies around causing a genuine ruckus for opposing offenses. XL has got the type of team that will serve his skills well, and even the MIA RBs drafted could provide some conditions boosts with the inevitable love that comes in a full season with three different 38ms RBs. Watch out if Tony Paige goes into eGGcellent! There's a lot of popcorn to be had in the defenses in this league. 

 

Bottom Line: XtraLargent is gonna continue his seasonal improvement with this squad. After a stellar season 1, the Raiders with this lineup are looking at battling the Chiefs for the top seed in the #Lewis conference. 

 

Best Asset: Jerry is so Very

Worst Liability : The running game is meh. Conditions can change that. Be advised....

 

3. BENGALS1 Cincinnati Bengals : Owner : @Tick aka White Tick - Tecmo fortunes were hard to come by for the Bengals in CFT's inaugural non zero season 1. After winning season 0, the Bengals employed the multitalented and multifaceted Johnny Johnson as well as Joey Browner. Unfortunately for the Cincinnati denizens and Tick himself, he also employed BJ Tolliver. Tolliver was able to throw 10 TDs, but also had 13 interceptions (BJ does often suck tecmo dick) and the tecmo luck on top of that just screwed the Bengals season 1 chances. It is a new season however, and with it, Tick has a nicely balanced team that will have a chance to compete for that coveted bye in the playoff bracket. Steve DeBerg leads the charge with Andre Reed and James Lofton his primary targets. Mike Rozier adds another weapon to the arsenal on the ground. And paving the way for that offense is the best OL that CFT Cap money could buy... or draft? The MIA OL. The anti sieve. On defense, Tick again will employ Louis Oliver and Jarvis Williams. Charles Mann will do some damage up front and give Tick a viable option to man up a DL if needed. But the secret sauce that makes all of this work for this team, taking it from nicely constructed to finely constructed, is one LB Jessie Tuggle. The TUGGLE is REAL FOLKS! The Legend of Jessie Tuggle in CFT is just beginning to grow, but already Tuggle is a sure fire CFT Hall of Famer. And the perfect kick to add to the whole mish mosh of ingredients? The one that will tip the Tecmo Gods assistance in their favor???... The Kicker and Punter squad that was created in Cincy. Not Avail. There's got to be some magic that is derived from that direct offering to the tecmo gods, which will bless us all with an homage to those battles amidst the CFT season 0 where full squads of Not Avail players battled it out in epic fashion. 

 

Bottom Line: The Bengals will be looking to bounce back from a dreadful season 1, including an epic playoff loss in OT to the Seahawks (in which the Bengals actually benefitted from @DT. botching up the double elim bracket... more on that later). A Balanced Bengals squad looks likely to battle for a bye in the 1st round of the playoffs. 

 

Best Assets: Jessie Tuggle and Not Avails

Worst Liability:  Is there one?

 

4. CARDINALS1 Phoenix Cardinals : Owner @~Tailback King~ aka Rudi! aka Donkey Dum aka Da Rida aka Bringer of Portland Heat - The one and only Rudy TBK will be joining the CFT for the first time in Season 2. And of course, he's bringing along his Johnny. Johnny Johnson that is. The man has no limits on what he can do on the tecmo gridiron. He can run. He can pass. He can decoy! And no one gets the rest of his teammates fired up on the tecmo sidelines like JJ as well (just another undocumented, until now, Hidden Stat of Johnny). Now TBK gets to showcase Johnny J's skills with a COMPLETE SQUAD AROUND HIM. Let's take out the PHX OL and throw in, um... THE HOGS! Let's get the Marky Mark brothers, Clayton and Duper, in to replace Roy Green and Ernie MuthaPhukka Jones. Let's get Jim Jensen in there to replace RiGGy Proehl with more speed and power to go with that sweet sweet 69 REC. Oh and let's roll out the LVP, Troy FRIGGIN ACHEMAN in there for Rosey the Givether. He's still got his Lonnie. He's still got his Timmy MAC! He even got the Iconic Jacob Green and Johnny's not as well known brother Mike holding the 2nd level down at LB3. THE WORLD IS ABOUT TO WITNESS WHAT JOHNNY CAN REALLY DO IN THE HANDS OF RUDY THE TAILBACK KING! Unfortunately, we have yet to see Rudy display elite level passing skills. Is it because of the PHX OL and QBs? Or is it Rudy. Either way, I'm reserving the right to shoot the Cardinals higher up this list until we see Rudy's passing skills equal Johnny Johnson's Tecmo Skillz. 

 

Bottom Line: Will Da Rida unleash the TRUE POWER of one JOHNNY JOHNSON for all the world to behold? Leading to CFT dominance and the coveted first PNW TITLE of any non consolation kind for TBK? Either way, the Donkey Bowl, Cards vs Raiders has GOT to be must see and hear TV. 

 

Best Asset: Johnny Johnny Johnny Johnny and Johnny. And all his stats, hidden and otherwise. 

Worst Liability: TBK passing skillz... Will he prove me wrong? I don't doubt he can... but WILL HE?

 

5. COWBOYS1 Dallas Cowboys : Owner : kamphuna8 aka turbohuna4eva! aka kamp da TRAMP - Dallas is looking for a repeat of the MaJJik that was season 1, but with the MaJJik gone, and Hugh Millen Nation in its place, this season looks to be a bit of a grind. The Cowboys saved their splooge for the Mr. Irrelevant pick, in which there was some premature e-draft speculation, as a couple of CFT comrades were informed before the actual pick was made that yes indeed, the services of the NY Giants Linebacker Wrecking Crew would be wearing CFT Cowboy Blue for season 2. LT is gonna be a monster, let's face it. He will threaten every XP and FG kick. He will get some sneaky "I didn't know he was there" sacks as the qb will be looking downfield and then all of a sudden you hear the whistle and LT is standing over your prone quarterback, lifting the leg in that internationally known dog relief pose... The rest of the LB crew are forces in their own right. Holding down the middle dives is Carl Banks. Bringing extra heat from the LB2 spot is Pepper Johnson. And the not so secrete weapon at LB3, we have 63 Reasons to believe that Gary can make a difference in affecting the opposing passing games. Those guys are gonna join forces with the baddest DL in the land, with Howie Long, Greg Townsend and Bob Golic. That front 7 is gonna present some problems for some teams in the CFT in season 2. Unfortunately, many of the teams that you see above Dallas on the projected finish have the kryptonite needed to alter the potential disruptive forces of the front 7... a STUD OL.  On the Back end, the speedy yet butterfingered corner Nate Odomes can fly around the airways, and both safeties Mark "Twiggy" Kelso and Kirby Jackson have some wheels and some hands, but not a whole lot of either. On offense, the Cowboys are going to start Hugh Millen over Chris Miller (Dawgs > Ducks always and forever) and then play the conditions. There is not a whole lot of innate speed for Dallas on offense, with Dalton Hilliard being the only player above 44ms in average. But the Cowboys have four other players with 44ms in average including JJ NovaCCek and the PL88MAKER, with a 38ms KMart and a 94HP Ironhead to add to the arsenal. Conditions and favor curried by the tecmo gods will play a large role in how successful this Cowboys offense can be. 

 

Bottom Line: The best front 7 that can possibly be assembled will still need the mediocre secondary and offense to play above their stats (or curry favor from the tecmo gods) in order to repeat, which is a tall order. One should never "expect" love from the tecmo deities. I do not. Definitely a FUN team for me to play with, but perhaps not the best constructed team as offense >>> defense when it comes to what you need in tecmo. Heavy in defense and Special teams will only get you so far when you don't have that offensive Speed...

 

Best Asset: LT LT LT LT LT LT LT

Worst Liability: Ho hum secondary and offense. 

 

6. FALCONS1 Atlanta Falcons : Owner : @DT. aka DT From BTown land of the Bremelos - You might be surprised to see the top 2 finishers in CFT season 1 projected to battle for the last 2 playoff spots in their respective conferences. Well, I am a bit too, but after looking over the rosters, and actually getting to play vs DT with his team live a bit, I think both our teams will struggle to make that 5th seed, the last seed to make the bracket without needing a play in game. DT, like me, went for love over cold hard tecmo steely intelligence. As I got some of my favorite players on my roster, DT has a lot of Seattle love on his squad too, and that might not necessarily be a great thing. Let's start off with the QB position. Mudbone! Dave Krieg, and Kelly Stouffer (pronounced like offer) are the QBs for Atlanta CFT 2. A healthy running attack in the SF RBs including Roger Craig, a couple of 44ms backups and Tommy Rathman are gonna cause some problems for teams. Krieg has Stephone Paige to loft bombs to as well. While there's potential for damage to be done, that's not necessarily an offense that is going to be prolific. You might see Roger Craig line up out wide. Or perhaps one of the 44ms backup RBs. On D, the Falcons have a stout DL featuring Michael Carter and Pierce Holt, as well as a HUGE disruptive force in Greg Lloyd, who not only will help on D, but also on special teams blocking some kicks. On the back end, more Seahawk love, in the form of Eugene, Nesby and company. Not necessarily a defense that scares you, especially some of these high end PC to REC combos we got. Thus I predict the struggles of this CFT 1 runner up. 

 

Bottom Line: This team will go as far as Mudbone to Stephone Paige will take them. Season 2 will be a grind. Season 1 started as a grind then finished with a major playoff push for Atlanta. DT would be fortunate if the same thing happened in season 2. 

 

Best Asset: Mudbone... Krieg's 69 PC can make even the ugliest starts to drives pay off in the end. 

Worst Liability: Mudbone... Krieg's combination of 25PS to 69PC will have balls actually landing on the receiver instead of being off and causing the JJ mechanics to initiate. With the 25ps, that will allow a lot of defenders to be there with the receivers when the moonballs finally land. 

 

7. CHARGERS1 San Diego Chargers : Owner : @Polish Rifle - Polish Rifle is a tecmo vet who dabbled for a few seasons in HSTL and the CFT is lucky and glad to have him join in and participate with us. The Chargers selected QB Browns first overall. The weapons the Rifleman gave to Bernie K include the other Dick Dick, Richard Johnson the slow, as well as Robert Clark. To keep teams from picking pass all the time, Polish Rifle can play conditions with Blair Thomas and Johnny Hector. This team can move the ball, but often times it will be a grind. The offense is slightly better than Cleveland's OG Rom offense with a bit more speed at RB and more speed and rec at WR. The OL is top notch however, as the KC OL was selected to keep QB Browns and company clean. On D, I predict some Bad Things man... Bad Things... coming from the DL in the form of BRUUUUUCE Smith. The second level of LBs is a standout group as well, with Charles Haley able to threaten the dive plays from LB4 and the first Romo, Bill Romanowski adding some contain value to the run and kick block value to special teams. Matt Millen could also play a role in disrupting the opposing offenses, especially if his conditions remain above average for any extended period of time. Then there is the secondary. At the end of the draft, it became clear the Chargers would be hiring the likes of the worst secondary in the game. Those Indy DBs... Mike Prior is their best guy at DB3, with his 31rp and 38ms, 44 hp and 44int, that's not anything to get excited about. the other 3 DBs are worse... I think there's going to be some real struggles here, but QB Browns in Polish Rifle's hands should keep things interesting. 

 

Bottom Line : Like the Falcons, the Chargers will go as far as their QBs ability to shine will take them. QB Browns to Robert Clark can be deadly, but there's not a lot of speed on this offense. 

 

Best Asset: QB Browns

Worst Liability: DBs from OG ROM Colts

^^^ @kamphuna8......I'm lovin this tradition your startin' with the players and the numbers.......I just hope when you hit that mythical magical day of the number 39, you know what a do with it.

Oh we're rolling with it. It's something I've liked seeing on Discord in runups to other tourneys, but we want this stuff on the Borg.

 

I'm also choosing to focus on players that will actually play in CFT 2. Tuggle is going to be on @Tick's Bengals, and Rickey Jackson will be playing for @XtraLargent's Raiders.

 

We are now at 56 days away from CFT 2 dropping it's bomb of Tecmo Season Innovation and Unique Experience on the world, and today's guy is my guy. Drafted with the last overall pick in the CFT 2 draft, along with the rest of the best LB crew in the game. The one and only...

LT.jpg

 

In Christmas 2004 I was given the gift that keeps on giving. A copy of LT: Over the Edge, Tackling Quarterbacks, Drugs, and a World Beyond Football.

 

Needless to say there is so many fantastic quotes in this book by LT and his coaches, teammates and opposing contemporaries. You can often see @sonofpatbeach reading from the Book of LT at different times at the Madisons over the years on YT. I will be reading from the Book of LT to my opponent before every game this year, just to let em know the guy that is coming for him in our CFT 2 battle.

 

Since today is LT day in the countdown, I'll share one now.

 

This one's a long one and somewhat abbreviated by me. And it's from his Prologue: No Superman Here

 

"Sonuvabitch put a gun to my head. I thought I was dead...

      My Name is Lawrence Taylor and I'm an addict... and addicts don't care if they have to venture into dangerous hellholes like The Hill if there's a pot of cocaine at the end of the rainbow. ...

     I pulled over in my Cadillac, and one guy got in my front seat and one guy got in the backseat. I didn't like that, so I said, "Yo, I don't want two guys in my car." But the guy standing outside pulled out some shit, so I bought it. ...

    The guy in the backseat got out and closed the door. The guy in the front seat made like he was getting out, but then he got back in, turned toward me, and stuck a gun in my face. "Gimme the watch, motherfucker."

     I said, "Nooooooo problem, bro. Just don't shoot."

     I was scared. Shit yes. I took my watch off and gave it to him. Little did he know that I had about $10,000 cash in my pocket; I carried a lot of money in those days---you never know when a poker game's going to break out. He put the watch on the seat between us, and then said he wanted my diamond pinkie ring. He didn't ask me to take it off, he just started TUGGing on it. He 'bout tore my finger off trying to get that sonuvabitch off. I was like, "Hey man, I'll get it off myself, okay?"

    I handed him the ring, and he handed his gun to the guy standing outside the car, and told him to get in. Now I realized they're about to jack me, take my car. The guy with the gun pulled on the back door, but the door was locked----thank God for those annoying safety features on expensive cars--- so his pal in the front seat had to reach over the seat to unlock the door. So now his body's between me and the guy with the gun. I see my opening. My chance.

     I slammed the Caddy into drive, and stomped on the gas. I banged over the curb, swerving like a crazy man, and the guy sitting next to me was screaming, "Stop, motherfucker! I'm going to kill you!"

     I was throwing that car from side to side, trying to throw him back and forth so he can't shoot me. We go about two hundred yards before I remember this punk ain't got no gun. He gave it to the other guy right? SO I screeched to a stop and started pounding him in the face with my fists. I wasn't scared now. "Where's my shit?" Bam! "Gimme my shit!" Bam! Bam!

     Needless to say he was more than happy to give me my watch and ring back. After he handed them over, though, I looked through my back window and saw that the other two guys----the guy with the gun and the dude who was in the backseat---- were running down the street, coming right for us. And there were comin', too, boy. So I yelled at the guy in my passenger seat, "Get out!" But he just sat there moanin' like a bitch, his hands covering his bloody face, so I reached across him, opened the door, and yelled, "Get out!" He still didn't move, so I hit the gas. Meanwhile, his buddies were closing in on us. The front passenger door is still open, so I grab that punk ass by the neck and shove him out of the car.

     And then I drove home and smoked their crack. "

 

 

Watch out CFT! To me, winning in Cascadia Fuckin' Tecmo is like crack was to LT... And I get to use LT to try and make it happen. And he IS gonna be flyin' around that tecmo gridiron like a bat out of hell, or like young LT goin' after that fix...

@kamphuna8...I love your passion, and I love L.T............but you, and anybody smart enough to head my warning,  knows that you have to try to control, stop, and contain Tecmobowl's worlds' baddest son~of~a~bitch.  To be honest Kamp, with my offensive line, and the caliber of my Tailback/WR/KR/PR/TE/or where ever the fuck else I wanna put him, will inevitably dominate the field no matter what Linebacker is waiting for him........................and the second Johnny Johnson gets his first handoff un~interupted, and actually has a hole to hit, goes for 50 and scores untouched, the morale and the confidence of every opponent will drop like the drawls off a Tijuana hooker.  I'm actually starting to feel sorry for all of you, because you're all gonna get a real good taste of what the words PUNKED THE FUCK OUT really means.

 

                                                                                    Sincerely,

                                                                                                       ~Tailback King

Kind of a Monday blahday feeling for me today. We are now 54 days away from CFT season 2. Today's player will be snapping for the CFT 2 Oilers and callmefairf. A sobering story for him to say the least, as it's been about 6 years since he died. His sprite will live on on the CFT gridiron.
