As a writer for Music City Miracles since February Womens Ben Jones Jersey , it’s been my duty to bring the best coverage of your Tennessee Titans that I possibly can. It’s been a great ride so far, and I look forward to seeing what happens during the regular season.So, in an effort to get to know the MCM crowd a little better, let’s discuss something that’s a little outside the box: What do you consider the best football video game of all time?Two of my longtime loves have been football and video games, so with football video games, I get the best of both worlds. Unfortunately, Electronic Arts has a monopoly on NFL video games, so no one else gets to make licensed games these days, and that’s a shame. In terms of classic football video games, there’s the obvious ones; Tecmo Super Bowl, NCAA Football 14, ESPN NFL 2K5, and Madden NFL 2004. A game I grew up with was NFL Street on the Gamecube. The game has no clock and the first team to 36 points wins, which is genius design. This allows for high scoring, arcade-style affairs. But a series that means the most to me is the NFL Blitz series, specifically NFL Blitz 2000.Lukie GamesMy Twitter handle @Brickwallblitz was named after the NFL Blitz series, and how could it not be? The NFL Blitz series has long been identified as taking the best aspects of the NFL while stripping away much of its fundamentals for pure 10-minute, arcade style football. I actually never grew up playing the NFL Blitz games as a kid, instead playing them during my high school years in the early 2010s’. Not only were the games insanely addicting, but they were also hilarious. There’s no penalties, so defenders can commit pass interference, commit outrageously violent tackles, and even deliver late hits without being punished. It’s something that would never be tolerated in real life (rightfully so), which makes it all the more hilarious in a video game series that kicks realism to the curb.I currently own the Nintendo 64 version of NFL Blitz 2000, which I’ve made sure to play religiously. It takes the original NFL Blitz concept and not only doubles the speed, but also adds a four player mode to the mix. The increase in speed gave a little realism to the game Womens Tajae Sharpe Jersey , as you had to make quicker decisions to avoid pressure while watching the routes develop. Remember in NBA Jam where you could catch on fire after hitting a certain amount of consecutive shots? That’s in here too, where you complete a certain amount of passes to one player or get two sacks in a row. It allows your defense and offense to run right by everyone with unlimited turbo, and it’s an absolute blast when you do get it.Of course, NFL Blitz 2000 was released in 1999, the year the Titans made the Super Bowl. In this game, the Titans have good rushing and special teams, but an average offensive line and defense and below average passing. Instead, the big four passing teams in this game are the Vikings, Broncos, 49ers and Jets (I swear). The 1998 Jets were one of the NFL’s best teams making it as far as the AFC Championship Game with head coach Bill Parcells and veteran journeyman Vinny Testaverde.The game is extremely fast and extremely fun, but I’ve found the game is actually rigged to favor opponents losing by multiple scores, cranking up the fumbles, pressure, interceptions, and incomplete passes on defenses while decreasing the rest for their offense. I’ve found ways around this a few times, but it keeps the games closer and allows for a more adrenaline pumping experience. As aforementioned, there’s a four-player mode, but my friends and I have found that the two-player mode works best, especially with the game’s Tournament Mode. Our games get so intense that some of us are known to rage quit the middle of them (not that I would ever do that.....ahem). The computer A.I. tends to be a little frustrating because they always pass the ball right as they touch the line of scrimmage, making them challenging to face even on the game’s easy mode.Several unique features to the game include making quick audibles at the line of scrimmage, flipping the playbook so you get mirrored versions of each play, and a play editor that allows you to create any play you want. As for the built in plays, I recommend stuff like “Da Bomb” (The ultimate deep ball play) and the versatile “QB Post”; These are my favorite plays to use.All in all, NFL Blitz 2000 is my favorite football video game of all time. It takes the best aspects of the NFL and maximizes them to outrageous absurdity, The game’s arcade style gameplay, crisp controls Womens Ryan Succop Jersey , intense matchups, and hilarious audio still hold up extremely well, and it also runs at a fast, smooth framerate. More importantly, NFL Blitz 2000 is a game that brings my friends and I together. No matter how furious I, I mean we get over multiplayer matchups, we always look forward to playing it whenever I have people over. It’s special to me for that reason, as well as being special to me for being insanely addicting.The game was also made available for the PS1 and Dreamcast, so you can find it on those consoles as well. Regardless of where you find it, I highly recommend playing NFL Blitz 2000, because it’s a football gaming classic.With that said, what’s your favorite football game of all time? List your favorite in the comment section below.Keeping Up With Marcus Mariota: Week 5, 2018 I for sure need to stop picking the Titans to win games now. I’m ruining what could have been a 5-0 start to the year.With that out of the way, welcome to another edition of Keeping Up With Marcus Mariota. Last week, Mariota completed 14 of 26 passes at Buffalo for 129 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception for a 51.6 passer rating. Obviously, the expectation is Mariota played a bad game after playing at a high level the previous week against the Eagles. But by looking at the incompletions he tossed, something doesn’t look right. So here’s what happened on all 12 of Mariota’s incompletions:1. Thrown in the area of Jonnu Smith who was tightly covered.2. Late, behind Derrick Henry.3. Corey Davis stopped running, was contacted.4. Was trying to throw the ball away under intense pressure, but the arc of his passmeant the ball was nearly intercepted.5. His actual interception. Nick Williams completely let the defensive back come through his window and pick the pass off.6. Wide of Luke Stocker7. Through Taywan Taylor’s hands on a catch he should’ve made.8. Pressure disrupts his pass to Dion Lewis.9. Batted at the line of scrimmage looking for Corey Davis.10. Thrown away under pressure from Tremaine Edmunds.11. Jump ball to Sharpe, not a smart decision, fortunate to get away with an incompletion.12. Accurate pass to Nick Williams that should’ve been caught for a touchdown but was instead dropped.So looking at Mariota’s incompletions, 9 of his 12 came from pass disruptions, a lack of separation, bad receiver play http://www.titanscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-taylor-lewan-jersey , drops, miscommunications, and throwing the ball away. If Williams catches the touchdown pass, we might not be talking about how “bad” Mariota played on Sunday. Another concern is how conservative Matt LaFleur’s play calling was. Sure, Buffalo’s defense has some quality players, but Tennessee only attempted four passes of at least 16 air yards. Perhaps LaFleur doesn’t trust the limited receiving corps, but With Corey Davis lighting it up downfield the previous week, it’s baffling.With that said, let’s highlight some notable passes Mariota threw on Sunday and briefly analyze them.gamepass.nfl.comHere, Nick Williams is running a simple go route against zone coverage, yet he couldn’t even do that correctly. Mariota gets clean protection—though really it’s hard not to when you’re releasing the ball that quickly—and it should be a pass that Williams can catch. But Williams has no spatial awareness on this play, so he has no idea the defensive back is coming into his window. Williams gets overwhelmed, screwing his quarterback over as the pass is picked off.gamepass.nfl.comThe Bills’ play-by-play listed this as an overthrown ball, but to me, this is one Taywan Taylor should’ve caught for a touchdown. Mariota is under heavy pressure this time and is able to get the ball off just before getting hit. I’ve mentioned in the past that Taylor’s catch radius is extremely limited. He’s extremely effective as a screen and underneath receiver, but when asked to expand his frame he’s been a major letdown. He’s asked to slightly contort his body to make this catch, but instead it goes through his hands and ends up as a dropped touchdown.gamepass.nfl.comAnd speaking of dropped touchdowns, Nick Williams ultimately sealed his fate in Tennessee with a massive drop that would’ve given the Titans a lead trailing 10-6. Mariota extends the play and Williams does a nice job of breaking open, but the ball inexplicably goes through his hands on the Titans’ second dropped touchdown of the game.Marcus Mariota wasn’t spectacular against the Bills, but the play calling was way too conservative, the receivers could barely separate, and when they did they either dropped the pass or were not on the same page as Mariota. I thought he played a solid game in spite of the situation around him, and it’s on LaFleur to correct his mistakes (from an otherwise solid season as offensive coordinator) and for the Titans to consider trading for a receiver.Still, at least we got to see Mariota leap over a defender.gamepass.nfl.comThat was awesome.
