23 Nov Tecmo Bo Jackson Player Of The Game – Week 11
In the early 90’s, there was a game that captured the hearts and minds of football fans…Tecmo Super Bowl. Real players, stats, and simple controls. It was mind-blowing. In the game, there was one player who ruled them all, and that player was Bo Jackson (sorry QB Eagles). He was unstoppable, zig-zagging his way up and down the field to another touchdown with utter ease. So in honor of the immortal Tecmo Bo Jackson, Green + Gold Life will be honoring a player every week who dominated the game in the same way Tecmo Bo did with the Tecmo Bo Jackson Player of the Game award.
And the Tecmo Bo Jackson Player of the Game award for Week 11 goes to…
In a must-win game, the Packers played with a passion and determination that every Cheesehead hoped and prayed for going into the game. There were many standout performances, but that one that stands out above all others is Mason Crosby. The goat from the previous week, Crosby delivered time and time again drilling five field goals with certainty and precision that made his holder in awe…
“He didn’t just go 5 for 5. He was pretty much dead on with all five kicks.”
The kicks were so pure, so straight through the uprights, that it felt that he would nail the kick from any distance and it wasn’t even a question. The Packers have taken their rightful spot as Kings of the NFC North, and there’s no better reason why than Mason Crosby’s clutch kicking. It’s for this reason that the kicker from University of Colorado and his utter dominance is deserving of the Tecmo Bo Jackson Player of the Game for this week.
