  1. @Miles Prower too many teams with less than 6 wins. @bruddog not enough teams with less than 6 wins.
  2. I haven't checked all 32 teams individually, but I think the Raiders might be the only team that has this: https://www.raiders.com/history/all-time-roster/ I don't know how many times I've searched for a player picture for another team, and the only pic I end up finding is on this page because he spent like 3 days with the Raiders or something. He may have spent years somewhere else and that team has no pics of the dude, but if he spent even a day with the Raiders, they took his picture.

  4. I saw the local high school kids playing Ultimate Football last night, which is based on Ultimate Frisbee. They were on a soccer field, and played some weird variation with 3 balls. Anyone ever play this or know anything about it?
  5. Out of curiosity I counted, because I came to the end of the faces I had prepared, and I made 30 separate "Face of the Day" posts. I could probably come up with something to say about pretty much every Tecmo face, and I may change my mind and post again tomorrow, but that seems like a good place to stop. If there are any faces you like that I missed, or if you just want to keep this going, feel free to add to it. Thanks for following along.
  6. I never thought Boomer Esiason looked like Gary Busey until I stumbled across this picture:
  7. The Sneer sneer /snir/ noun 1. a contemptuous or mocking smile, remark, or tone. Yes, that is Jack Trudeau at the Playboy Mansion while he was at the U. of Illinois in 1983. Or 1984. It was New Year's. Check out the story: https://www.thesportsbank.net/illinois-illini/playboy-mansion-party-illini-football/. You're welcome. And that is Paul Skansi in... a denim ad? I have no fucking idea. And Boomer looking like Gary Busey over here: IND. QB2 jack TRUDEAU Face=0x03 #10 25 69 13 13 31 38 31 50 [2 2 2 ] SEA.

QB1 boomer ESIASON Face=0x0a #7 25 69 19 13 63 56 69 75 [4 9 2 ] Bonus videos: Jack Trudeau in a hair grafting ad: https://wegrowhairindy.com/gallery/video-gallery/jack-trudeau-qa Boomer making fun of Dan Marino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cu8q3363qTk You know, there are a lot of downright hysterical errors in this video game, but there are moments when I think the programmers were mystical prophets who existed out of time. What a great expression for these three.
  8. Face=0xba is similar to several other faces, but there are a couple of details that make it a little unique. It looks like slight tweaks were made to look like a specific player. It's one of the few faces with that receding hairline, and it has a different stache and mouth than similar faces. They really seem to have had an eye for detail on this one. There's only one problem. This face is not used for anyone in the game! Why go through the trouble of making such a unique face, only to not use it? Was it intended for a certain player, and then they decided on a different face? Or a bench player who was going to be in, but then got cut or something? I'm so curious about this face.
  9. Natty Dread 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:

  15. Go here, lots of stuff: https://faneuilhallmarketplace.com/ Have a drink at Cheers. See a Red Sox game.
  16. I didn't want to use this in the post about Marino because it doesn't really look like his Tecmo face, but this pic of him and Bernie Kosar from 1984 makes me laugh:
  17. 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:
  18. Face=0x2d is not used: Face=0x06 is Dan Marino: Face=0x08 is Anthony Dilweg: I'm a little confused. MIA. QB1 dan MARINO Face=0x06 #13 25 69 6 13 81 69 63 69 [1 10 3 ] G.B. QB2 anthony DILWEG Face=0x08 #8 25 69 13 13 44 38 31 38 [2 2 2 ]
  19. 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. IND.

  20. 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: CIN. RE jason BUCK Face=0x19 #99 25 31 38 50 19 25 [7 3 ] GIA.

LILB matt MILLEN Face=0x1c #54 25 38 50 63 31 63 [3 7 ] 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.
  21. 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: CLE.

  22. lol I have no idea who that is, but okay.
  23. Mike Singletary! Man, look at those eyes, he's comin for ya! PIT. LT john JACKSON Face=0xa6 #65 25 69 25 50 RAI. RB4 greg BELL Face=0xa6 #28 44 69 31 38 50 19 [4 1 7 0 ] CHI. LILB mike SINGLETARY Face=0xa6 #50 38 50 56 75 19 81 [7 7 ] RAMS LT irv PANKEY Face=0xa6 #75 25 69 25 63
  24. I guess I'm just used to playing against the computer. I played a couple of preseason games with CHI against SD to see how I could use Singletary, giving SD those two run plays, plus better plays in the other slots. I just called R&S Run 3 every play. If it was a R&S formation, I used Carrier. If it was something else, I used Singletary. He's unblocked up the middle on all the good pass plays I put in. On the Run 2 play, you can time a dive so you tackle Butts before you get blocked. Sometimes I missed even against the computer, so I can see how trying that against another MAN player would be difficult.
  25. 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: Face=0x3c Face=0x3d Face=0xd3 JETS RG dave CADIGAN Face=0x3d #66 25 69 31 50 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 ] 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: but he does look a lot like this face: 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)
