Tecmo Super Bowl. Maybe the greatest sports video game of all time and the game that made Bo Jackson and QB Eagles instant legends.
It was the first football video game to get an NFL team license, so it featured all 28 teams and rosters from the 1990 season - save for a few holdouts like QB Eagles. Tecmo Bowl only had 12 teams and didn't have the NFL's consent to use team names. After Jerry Rice retired, there were no more active players in the pros from Tecmo Bowl.
Well, with the NFL season approaching and training camps starting this week, we may now be on the verge of losing any remaining active players that originally appeared in Tecmo Super Bowl as well.
As of right now, from our research, there are only two players from Tecmo Super Bowl currently signed to teams. That's Jeff Feagles, who's in the last year of his contract with the Giants, and Junior Seau. It has been reported that Vinny Testaverde will resign with the Pats, but that has yet to officially happen.
The most likely player to get signed that played last season but isn't currently with a team is former Saints kicker John Carney. If some team is really desperate, maybe they'd sign Morten Andersen or Ricky Proehl who both played last season as well.
Anyway, we all know the real reason you're reading this post is that you want to play the game rather than do work.
And we're here to help you achieve that goal. So here's Tecmo Super Bowl in all its original glory.
