02 Nov Tecmo Bo Jackson Player Of The Game – Week 8
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 8 goes to…
This game was just a good ol’ fashion gridiron beat down by the Broncos. In every phase of the game, the Packers were dominated. Take away a couple of Denver penalties and the Packers might have been shut out which is just mind-boggling. The players on both sides of the ball looked lethargic, a step or two slower than the Broncos on every play to the point that Tecmo Bo Jackson was shaking his head in disappointment. Mike McCarthy summed up the depressing night in a nutshell with one very truthful sentence.
“I haven’t had my ass kicked like that in a long time”
It is just one loss so there is no need to panic, but it was a loss that did not have an inspirational and superior performance by any Packers player whatsoever, hence, no one is deserving of the prestigious Tecmo Bo Jackson Player of the Game award this week.
