Edgar Bennett out-rushes Walter Payton, and Don Beebe is your MVP. But Buddy Ryan's 46 defense got a safety on Favre!? Granted, it was 0 degrees, windy and snowing at Lambeau...
EDIT: S'pose I should try it for baseball...how about a 1-game rematch of the 1982 World Series? Cards @ Brewers: Joaquin Andujar (15-10, 2.47 ERA) vs. Pete "Best Mustache in Baseball if You Don't Count Rollie Fingers or Goose Gossage" Vukovich (18-6, 3.34 ERA), and your DH's are Orlando Sanchez and (go figure) Ned Yost.
And...aw, crap! Cards win 7-3. Andujar throws a complete game, and your MVP: Lonnie Smith...who would go on to World Series baserunning fame with the Braves. Dumb*ss. I demand a re-re-match!
Thanks a lot, Eddie Famous. I'll never do anything productive again. :-)

Really, if they told you that SARS was being pumped through the ventilation system into every theatre in which this was being shown, would you be any less likely to go see it?-- review of 'Daddy Day Care' at fametracker.com

OK, I tried one out. '85 Bears vs. '92 Cowboys at Texas Stadium. Final: Cowboys 24 Bears 21.
Obviously this thing has an anti-Bears bias.
And get this, guess who was the MVP. Aikman? Smith? Irvin? No. Novachek? Harper? Johnston? Nope. Give up. Of course it was the great Curvin Richards! 52 yards rushing (more than Emmitt, heck he got more carries than Emmitt!), 24 yards receiving, 2 TD's.
I wished I put on the play-by-play, because I'm wondering if this thing has injuries. Because if not, while this is a neat toy, it's not very accurate statistically (I'm mean, in '92, nobody got carries but Emmitt, nobody! Who the hell is Curvin Richards?).
Edit: OK, I just re-did it, this time with play-by-play turned on. This time the Bears whipped the Cowboys 24-13, but once again Curvin Richards gets more carries than Emmitt. He takes over from the late 2nd quarter on, and there's no mention of injury. I can't say that's accurate at all.
Hey! Not so fast, pieman! I bought Neyer's book primarily because of your recommendation (well, yours and Bill James). So be sure to check your mailbox, because that commission check from Amazon.com should be arriving any day now.
