Group K

I won Toss

I Called RAMS Vs. MIA

Flo went with RAMS

I kickoff We exchange TD's to start then I get a INT and FLO forces me to punt which goes all the way to the 5 and Flo dosen't have time to score before the Half

A nice arrow trick followed by a decent juke lets me score.  Flo answers and scores on a CC to tie it up in the start of the 4th.  After driving to around the 40 i get stuck on a 3rd and 15th

i go with a timed pass hoping for a dive because of Marinos Passing Speed but i get the JJ anyway and get about 16 yards.  I run in for a score to go up 21-14 with about 3 minutes.  Flo get to midfield quick and i consider letting him tie the game and hope to score before the game is over but don't.  MIA defense comes up big with the stop and i run backwards and punt to win the game. Hank RAMS 21 over FLO MIA 14

GROUP E

Drake wins toss, calls CLE GB, Stubby takes GB

 

First half is offensive wasteland

GB held to punt on first possession, CLE grinds it into red zone but stalls and takes 3 to open up the scoring. Both teams then trade punts. GB has time for the before half bomb, but play is picked and Majik tries to dump it off, only to be intercepted by DLineman Pike! This gift leaves about 20 seconds for the Browns. Metcalf run gets it within the 10 and Browns decide to push their luck and go for 7 instead of the tap in. Bad move, as Kosar is sacked right before releasing it to an open Mack in the flat. 3-0 at halftime.

 

Second half offensive showcase!

(Just kidding lol.) Browns only up 3 but feeling good with receiving 2nd half kick. Kosar has an open man but throws short and is picked off by a bad condition Mark Lee (that's a scary 25 int)...hmm alright, payback for the Pike int I suppose. Kemp is in excellent for GB and Majik is able to drop it in over Mike Johnson's reach on the short field to give the Pack the lead 7-3. Ut o. Browns receive and are immediately held to 4th and 1 deep in their territory. Metcalf and Mack both in bad, so the run game has become a real slog. Cleveland dials up a pass play and Bern has Webster open but Stubb tries to close in on the suspected scramble and goes for the kill - Kosey gets rid of it just before the hit and nails Webster for a big 60 yard gain. This sets up another red zone chance for Cleveland. Inside the 10 it looks like potential disaster as Metcalf coughs it! Now it sure looked to me like GB recovered, but the refs say Browns have it! - #rigged - Kosar finally hits an excellent condition Brian Brennan(ya baby) to take the lead 10-7. Time winding down now, Packers work it slowly into Cleveland territory. 4th down comes up and they set up for a long FG (55ish) - the pressure comes and Jacke rushes it, pushing it to the left to the collective sigh of the dog pound. Browns run one play to take it into "kneel down" territory and punt it to wrap this shit show up.  

 

GG to Stubby, could've gone either way.

  • Wags scored on the opening drive, then was able to get Hank to punt to set up another scoring drive to go up 14-0.  Hank has enough time for end of half JJ to the 1 yard line, then runs it in to cut score to 14-7 at the half.  Hank gets the ball first to start second half, but throws a pick.  Wags get a FG and both teams score a TD from there to finish 24-14.  GG Hank!

  • Wags chose JETS

I'm just going to start off by saying Jebigred got bent over by the game of Tecmo.  Wags fumbled twice, but both recovered by Wags for important gains.  One on a kick return and one near jeb's goal line, which was recovered and scored by Wags.  Jeb fumbled once (I think) and of course Wags picked it up.  Jeb had great drives, but twice Wags called his play on 4th to stop him at the goal line.  The game literally could've gone either way, but ended up 30-7.  I'll post the nsv for anyone to watch and feel Jeb's pain.

30-7 put that on a t-shirt! 

 

Group M

Toolie won the toss

Called PHX vs JETS

Sammie Smith took JETS

 

I get the ball and go up 3-0, then we trade TDs and Sammie boots a 65 yarder at the gun to tie it 10-10 at the half. 

 

2nd half I am able to get an INT on an overthrow, then Johnny Johnson coughs one up.  Cards get a goal line stand, though, and drive the field to go up 17-10.  JETS have a 4th and 1 and go for a bomb but Ken Harvey get the pass defensed on Boyer.  Cards punch one in for a  24-10 final.  

 

GG Sammie!

Group 6

Bruddog vs Nelson79

Bruddog wins toss and calls NYJ NO

Nelson takes NO

 

1st HALF

I mix and match run and pass for the first drive and score on a 3rd down run to make it 7-0. I accidentally get blocked on the ensuing KR and cannot corral heyward and that long drive is wasted for nothing. Another long drive and its 14-7. Mcmillan goes into good in the 2nd qtr. I force a stop around the 30 or 40. Morten comes on for the FG but its WIIIIDE RIGHT. I get close to Leahy range but go for the dagger 2td jj td lead and come up empty. 

 

2nd HALF

Accidentally onsides....SMH... and nearly get it but luckily he gets tackled when he gets it. McMillan goes into excellent either this qtr or the next. Regardless he saves the day with a JJ int in perfect position. I drive down to the 23 or so and face a 4th and 1. Obrien scrambles for the conversion. THomas escapes some drones on run 2 and its 21-7 NYJ. Mcmillan would get his 2nd jj int on a deep jj attempt but obrien gives it back a few plays later as maxie just gets to a deep crosser on time.   Mcmillan would just miss another jj int attempt as he was slightly out of position and fourcade hits on a big gain. NO gets down to the 10 or so but NYJ D stiffens. MVP Mcmillan comes up with his 3rd jj int on the day. Obrien and pals milk most of he clock and leahy comes in for a FG. Gil byrd would recover a KR fumble for some pt differential points.

GROUP PLAY: WAR MACHINE V 8-BIT
 

MATCHUP: PHX v DAL (WAR MACHINE WINS TOSS)
 

PRE-GAME: This was an interesting matchup picked by War Machine, because he beat me with Dallas a few months ago while playing a tpc scrimmage. These teams are pretty much even, although, I think the cowboys have a slight advantage. Checking Brudogg's tecmo matchup spreadsheet we can see the cowboys score a 13 on the scale while the cardinals score 12, which gives the cowboys a 1 point advantage here.  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1w0sntWyYUWOZ0xVncnGATONP57lnqFUZuIhDgYoh2Z8/edit#gid=626874606
 

First Half:
The cowboys receive the ball to start the game and gain some nice chunk yardage from their passing attack on the first drive and put it in for a TD. I figured War would pick run defense to help defend against the cowboys running attack, so I tried to mix it up best I could to keep him guessing. The cardinals answer back with a nice connection between Rosenbach and Green for the score. 7-7. Later in the game Rosenbach goes into bad condition and Tupa comes in off the bench; which is huge for the men in blue and silver. Cowboys answer back to make the score 14-7. What was interesting about this drive was that War picked a bunch of my plays, but the Aikman to Novacek JJ connection was hitting and it saved me from taking a few sacks. Tupa comes in for a bad Rosenbach this drive and connects deep to Jones for 60 yards which results in a Johnny Johnson rushing TD (triple deke nhl94 style) 14-14 halftime.
 

Second Half:

Cardinals receive the kick and drive to mid field where they take a big sack on 2nd down and an errant throw on 3rd down results in an INT and change of possession, however, a fumble by The Babe running down the sidelines gives the ball right back to AZ. Tupa and Johnson take the ball down the field and Tupa hits Green on a nice pass 1 wr2 burn route from the 30 for 6 points.  Cowboy's answer back quick with the deep ball to Irvin and a pass 3 JJ from the 15 to tie the score in the 4th 21-21 with 4 tecmo minutes left in the game. Phoenix shut down a lot of my big iso run plays with help from the drone coverage. Being able to stretch the field was key for the cowboy’s success this game. Cardinals put together a nice drive late in the 4th quarter to the 5 yard line, but an errant throw from Tupa to a wide open Green in the end zone results in AZ settling for a FG. 24-21, cardinals.  The cowboys get the ball back with 32 seconds left on the clock and on the last play of the game, Babe, in good condition, connects with Irvin for 75 yards and the win with no time left. 28-24 Cowboys. This was a fun game that was back and forth and came down to the wire.

GG War Machine. Thanks for hosting this tournament

Toolie vs. SammieSmith33 

Group 14

Toolie Won toss called PHX vs. Jets

I took Jets

 

1st Half:

 

It was a cool 45 degrees at the Meadowlands and the Jets we’re hosting the Cardinals.  The Jets won the toss and elected to kick.  On the Cardinals first drive a lot of running took place which set up Del Greco for a 40 yard field goal.  

 

On the Jets first possession Blair Thomas broke an 70 yarder down to the goaline and Johnny Hector punched it in.  7-3 Jets.

 

Cardinals next drive was a good mix of passing and running with a td to follow. After this with little time remaining in the first Leahy kicks a 63 yarder to tie at 10 going into halftime. 

 

2nd half:

 

3rd quarter was very quiet. 2 punts amounting to much of nothing.  

In the 4th Jets driving and an interception was thrown by OBrien.  Cardinals next drive Johnny Johnson fumbles and the Jets get the ball back and drive down to the one yard and get held up by a tough Cardinals Defense.  The offense for the Cardinals scores 14 unanswered and the Jets fall to the Cardinals 24-10.

 

it was a fun game and was closer than the score but Ken OBrien has no balls this game.

- Group 7

- I won toss

- Kc vs Chi

-Duece vs ACSlater

 

This game was pretty much the game of turnovers minus the opening drive. I got ball first and chewed up pretty much all the first half before mailing it in for 7 to Barry Word. After that is where the shit show begins. I accidentally onsides the kick giving him the ball at the 45ish. Then a few plays later he throws a pick to DT only for me to fumble it back trying to scramble with my qb in bad. He returns it to about to 30 and in the next few plays he passes it gets to about the one and fumbles it back to me. It got so bad to where his RB who was in excellent fumbled on his 2nd or 3rd carry of the game. Shoulda prob been a lot closer than it was. Score ended up being 26-7

  • Group H
  • I won the toss
  • NO-JETS
  • Retronathan takes the Saints

 

Retronate played great in this one and deserved the win.  Tie game with a few mins before half (Nate gets 2nd half kickoff), Nate throws deep pass to wide open WR but ball is dropped!  Easy TD but settles for FG which is blocked.  I kick FG just before half.  

 

2nd half I take control but Nate hangs in and I’m able to seal it with a TD (after a mis tap pass that should’ve been INT).

 

I win 24-21

Simplesimon vs. RetroNathan

I win coin toss, call Bengals Chiefs matchup, Nate chooses the Chiefs.

There is video, I swear.  

I won the opening KO and matriculate the ball down the field.  Nate does the same on his opening drive.  I drive down and score another TD via pass to back of the endzone from the 20yd line (got lucky).  I accidently onside the kickoff and Nate scores a TD after a short drive making it 14 -14 at the half.  Halftime festivities ensue.  Nate receives 2nd half KO and fumbles but manages to recover it.  We trade 3 and out drives (2 for Nate 1 for me) in the 3rd quarter.  I have ball at the start of the 4th quarter and throw a pick into coverage by Porter around midfield.  Nate procedes to score on a 1yd TD scamper by Okoye chewing some clock in the process to go up 21-14.  I get the ball back with 1:30 on the clock.  BTW Icky Woods was in Excellent the whole 2nd half, Brooks in Good too.  I got  CC by Woods to get to Nate's 20yd line with about 45 seconds left.  Then I (Esaison) complete a pass to Woods over the middle to the 5yd line with 20 secs left.  Red Gun Z slant is ran and I mistap once too many and the ball sails OOB instead of to Woods over the middle, but there's one tick left on the clock.  Whew! Last play of the 4th quarter, and I complete a pass to Brooks in the short flat past a jumping DT to the delight of the Cincinnati crowd (and me too) 21-21 OVERTIME!  I win the coin toss thankfully and drive slowly down the field, getting a huge 30yd scamper by Brooks to get to midfield.  On a 3rd and 16, I barely convert a 1st down with (Run 3) Run and Shoot Sweep to the bottom with Brooks. I whittle down the field to the 12 yd line and then three straight negative plays force me to attempt a FG from the 28yd line with DT looming.  I narrowly convert the kick(past a rushing DT) on a (single) doink and thru the uprights to win game 24-21.  Great game and sportsmanship from Nate.  Great game for me and a mild heart attack later, I manage to post this recap.

Flo VS Bigred

Flo wins toss

Calls SD-Denver

Flo- Denver

Bigred- Chargers

 

Chargers take the opening drive and Tolliver hits Ronnie Harmon at the back of the endzone for the go ahead score up 7-0

Denver drives all the way down to the 1 yard line.  Coach BigRed's defense comes up a with a sack and QB FLO panics with Elway and takes the sack.

SD holds Denver to a 3 and out and Coach Red punts the ball.   Denver has a nice drive but the end of the half FG is blocked by Oneal

 

7-0 at halftime.

 

Bigred calling for the fumble on the kickoff....praying actually....ALAS...FUMBLE....Denver scoops it up around the 25.   Down inside the ten, Butts FUMBLES.....but the Broncos couldn't recover and the Chargers score to go up 14-0.

 

Flo directs a quick drive to cut the score to 14-7 heading into the 4th.    However, SD offense works to perfection with a CLUTCH DRIVE to go up 21-7 essentially ending the game.

 

After an Elway int, coach RED trys to run up the score but comes up short.

Final:

 

Bigred 21

FLO 7

- Pit vs Cle

-Player121 vs Duece

 

 

Another one I should've lost. Player got up early 7-0 after a three and out by me. Ended up getting the ball back only to go three and out again. Player shouldve had 3 before half but got caught in a grapple which killed the clock. The momentum switched after half and I scored on a picked play fummie. Next drive i think i got a pick on a picked play and turned that into 7 so now its 7-14. Score ended up being 21-7.
