Fan Question: 'Could You Tackle Bo Jackson On Tecmo Bowl?

Bo_jackson_tecmo_bowl-chris-harris_medium

I know this probably sounds a bit random, but I’m just sitting over here thinking about old school Nintendo’s "Super Tecmo Bowl."  Reason being that a fan sent me a message on Facebook the other day (along with that sweet pic, above) that posed the most awesome question I’ve ever been asked...

Chris... If you were in the game Super Tecmo Bowl, would you be able to tackle Bo Jackson?

...I told you the question was awesome.

As I’m sure most of you already know, Bo Jackson was the hardest person to tackle on the game - he was unstoppable.  Noone on the game could get him down, and I don’t think any current players - as Tecmo Bowl characters - could tackle him, either.

But could I bring him to the ground?

...Yeah, I could do it.  

I’m not certain how I’d hit Bo, but I’m guessing I’d just run through him.  And, if that didn’t work, I’d shoestring him.

And I wouldn’t stop there...

After bringing Bo down, the game would launch some type of hit stick code, so that - on your next tackle - you’d hit a player and their helmet would pop off, or something.  And then, for the rest of the game, your shoes would be lit-up and you’d be able to just knock everybody out.  Haha -- Yeah, that would be pretty sweet ;-)

Oh, and in case you've forgotten how unstoppable Bo Jackson was on Super Tecmo Bowl, check out this video of him rushing for 99 yards and taking the entire quarter to get in the endzone.
