Fingers crossed for hoping MrNFL can somehow manage to pull off Dan Connolly’s epic, “fat guy” return against Green Bay, too. That would be something.
Much like Jackson and Connolly’s returns were for the NFL, I’m pretty sure a 71-yard kickoff return by an offensive lineman would be a Tecmo Bowl first. Unfortunately, the game’s inherent programming limitations might make that one impossible, but one can dream…
If you’re a football fan and haven’t yet seen the manner of the Jaguars’ epic win over the Texans yesterday, well, this post isn’t for you — The range of reasonable excuses for that is so remote that we refuse to enable the apathy exhibited by your football fandom (or lack thereof).
That said, however, we have no qualms about throwing this bone out there: A lovely reenactment of yesterday’s sensational finale via one of the greatest — if not the greatest — football video game of all time. Complete with the call from Gus Johnson (my god, can you imagine what Tecmo Bowl would’ve been like with Gus Johnson play-by-play?!?!?!?).
