Derek Anderson Football — Week 5


Worst Tecmo Arm Ever.


Man, it is hard to find a picture of Marc Wilson on the internet.  This guy is a goddamn mystery.  I, as you can tell by the caption, have quite a long history with Marc Wilson.  I was a fan of both Tecmo Bowl games, but I became addicted to Tecmo Super Bowl.  I’d have to say the reason why was because they had every team, and also the game kept stats.  This leap forward in technology was almost too much to comprehend.  I became pretty good at the game, good enough so that winning with any decent team was not challenging enough for me.  The Patriots were the worst team on the game, and Marc Wilson was their back-up QB.  It really made me feel like a gamer when I could lead the league in passing with Marc Wilson.  His video arm was just shockingly bad.  I don’t know that I ever saw him throw an actual pass in real life.

That doesn’t mean I can’t look up his stats to check exactly how awful he was, though.  What got this league started was what I considered to possibly be the worst game a quarterback ever had in a win.  Of course I had no support for this, but I thought it was a safe assumption.  2 of 17, you know the details by now.  But, let me share with you this little Marc Wilson gem from 1986 when he was starting for the Raiders.  On November 9th, in Dallas, the Raiders won 17-13 despite Wilson going 4 of 14 for 37 yards and 3 INTs.  Rating?  You guessed it, 0.0.

  1. The Summaries will go up after this NE game ends, and everything is final with pick ’em, etc.

    But, you won 18.5 to 7. Flacco wasn’t good for much, Smith put up a pretty respectable 15 points.

  2. How can you go against the chalk with the number 1 pick? I’ll take the undrafted rookie making his first career start against the defending super bowl champions, thanks.

    Max Hall.

  3. 5. Freeman
    6. Fitzgerald

    **The picks are in. I’m just trying to clarify one thing. If you happened to see the full list that was posted briefly, please disregard that until 1pm.

  4. Collins killed me. Favre better have a big night tomorrow or 5-0 is a lost cause.

    Oh….thank you Smith for the fumble and ensuing TD. Do I get pick 6 points for that?
