TSB Face of the Day

Recommended Posts

Face=0x4f is used for 7 players, but I always think of it as the Howie Long face since he's one of my favorite players. Photos are of him, Trace Armstrong, and Bill Romanowski. All three of them are with my Raiders in these photos. I don't remember Romanowski ever looking that badass when he was on the 49ers. I'm just saying.

Interestingly, I'm (still) working on a 2002 rom, and I forgot Armstrong was on the original with the Bears. I used Face=0x1e for him:

I always thought it was funny that Bo Jackson was essentially the face of the game, and they didn't even give him his own face. Did they think Montana was going to carry the game for 25 years? Noobs want to be Bo. Photos are Bo, and¬†lookalikes Joe Kelly (in his lone season as a Raider in 1993, everyone becomes a Raider when they get older) and Floyd Turner. Below that is that Tecmo Bo commercial with Brian Bosworth. Bosworth was not actually in Tecmo Super Bowl, but he was in Tecmo Bowl. That's a modified rom in the commercial¬†ūüėÜ

The Bald Guys

 

Seeing Bald Bo reminded me of these faces again. There are a number of Tecmo faces that appear to have very short hair or are balding, but only three faces are completely bald/shaved without a pixel of hair. Photos are Mark Murphy, Greg Townsend, Ottis Anderson, and Ronnie Harmon. Anderson started shaving his head when he joined the Giants, but I couldn't find a photo of him completely bald from his playing days, so this one is from 1997. Harmon has stubble here, too, but fuck it, close enough:

Okay, buckle up, this is a weird one. I was looking at the faces with short hair when I was doing the Bald Guys post, and of course I came across these three faces. I know this is probably common knowledge at this point, but I had completely forgotten that they also got Johnny Johnson's race wrong. But then it gets interesting. First, here's the faces and photos of Johnson and Andre Rison:

 

 default_face3C.thumb.png.9ec424d5c5a18a7ac505c50b40898124.png :face3D: :faceD3:

    Face=0x3c         Face=0x3d         Face=0xd3

PHX. RB1  johnny JOHNSON  Face=0x3d  #39 38 69 50 38 50 38 [7 3 6

 2 ]

ATL. WR2  andre RISON  Face=0xd3  #80 44 69 63 13 50 75 [1 9 9  12 ]

Image result for johnny johnson 1991 pro set image.thumb.jpeg.a3838a72aa6533aaeb3a2c1a3e8d01a5.jpeg

 

Now, Face 3C is not used for any player, but it is identical to Face 3D. I feel it's also worth noting that it would be easy to mistype D3 as 3D, so maybe Face 3D was only intended for Dave Cadigan. Except that's also a mistake, because Dave Cadigan looks nothing like that face:

 

Image result for dave cadigan but he does look a lot like this face: :face1D: which happens to be Face 1D, making 3D a potential typo again.

 

This means that both Face 3C and 3D do not represent any real players on the original rom.

 

(Nobody tell Tailback King about any of this, he's full of enough conspiracies)

Back in the early days of Tecmo, both before and after this forum was created, before many people knew much of anything, there was something called the NT Dive. It is universally frowned upon today, often being deemed an illegal move in leagues and tourneys, to the point that you feel dirty doing it even when you're playing by yourself. But when you first discovered it, back around 1992, you thought it was a really clever way to stop a cracked out computer. When you played as the Lions so you could run circles around the opposition with Barry Sanders, there weren't many options on defense. You had Michael Cofer and that's about it. But thanks to the NT Dive, Jerry Ball's 44rp (second in the game only to Bob Nelson's 69rp for NTs) and 69hp made him a Tecmo Legend in my book, because I had no idea who he was in real life. He was a 3-time Pro Bowler, but there was no way I was going to be aware of a NT from Detroit, although of course he also ended up as a Raider when he got older:

The Headbands

 

I can't find photos of any of these players wearing headbands. You know who is in a lot of photos wearing headbands? Jim McMahon. You know who has a Tecmo face without a headband? Jim McMahon. Photos are Hoss, Landeta, and Bostic. The Tecmo faces are good likenesses, just not sure why they have headbands:

Just for fun, here's a photo of McMahon in all his headband glory. I'm thinking about combining the bottom half of his Tecmo face with the top half of Hoss, but that would be too much like work.

I think of this as the Ronnie Lott face, so I was mildly surprised to rediscover that it was used for 7 other players, including Freeman McNeil and Rodney Peete (photos below next to Lott). Looking at photos of these guys now, I think this was designed as Peete's face. They seem to have placed priority on QBs in general, and this face looks the most like him.

i know the Ronnie Lott Raiders card is for face reference, but i think its interesting that he briefly wore the red and yellow KC jersey, like so:

3497-U206Fr.jpg

 

It's surprisingly difficult to find good head shots of some of these players. Everybody's always wearing helmets. I didn't know he signed with the Chiefs at the end of his career. Too bad he was hurt in the preseason and never played a game for them. I thought that pic was the 49ers again. The card I shared is from his first year as a Raider in 1991, but he was still with the 49ers in the pic. Here's a couple of shots of him looking more like a Raider:

The photos are three offensive linemen of the 49ers, a big part of their success, and some scrub LB from Houston, who never got past any of these 49ers:

Natty Dread

 

:faceBE: DET. RCB  leroy IRVIN  Face=0xbe  #47 25 31 25 25 38 50 [3  25 ]    
S.F. TE2  jamie WILLIAMS  Face=0xbe  #81 25 69 19 38 50 31 [1 4 6  0 ]

 

These guys must have had dreads for a very short time, as I could find scant photographic evidence of it. I'm putting Jamie Williams first, as it's a little clearer. In the photo you can clearly see long hair coming out the back of his helmet. In the video interview below that, you can see his hair in the photo on the wall behind him. All I could find of Leroy Irvin was a football card from 1989. If you look closely (zoom in) you can see his long hair coming out on the right side:
