Watch the game before the game, Part II: Tecmo Super Bowl picks the Giants

Last week, I posted Armchair GM's Tecmo-ized version of the NFC divisional playoffs with current NFL rosters (I still can't get over seeing names like Mason Crosby and Greg Jennings in the classic game.) Well, since the Packers advanced to the NFC Championship Game, it only makes sense to continue with the old-school Nintendo karma.

Except my beloved childhood game has betrayed me. Even after punishing the Seattle Seahawks 37-6 in a virtual beatdown, this week's computer-vs-computer simulation has Plaxico Burress playing out of his mind against the Pack. At Lambeau Field! With Eli Manning throwing to him!

Also, Ryan Grant's 13 carries for 19 yards seems pretty pathetic coming off his career 201-yard, three TD day last week. Maybe they should go back to calling him "Brian Grant."

(In case you're too lazy to follow the above link, the same site has the New England Patriots topping the San Diego Chargers 35-31 in the AFC Championship Game. And that's with Billy Volek at the Bolts' helm, not a gimpy Philip Rivers.)
