TEAM INTRODUCTIONS

Indianapolis-This team has great defensive power. Their weak passing attack 
is made up by their running ability.

Miami-With Marino as your quarterback, his incredible passing ability will 
be the center of your offense, this offense tops the league in scoring, but 
their defense is weak.

Cleveland-The powerful running back Mack and quarterback Kosar are the 
center of the offense. This team has real offensive power.

Denver-Elway is a popular quarterback and is almost a one man team offense. 
But the defense has its ups and downs.

Seattle-Seatle is a team with a lot of talent. They’re coming of a strong 
season, but can they win the championship.

Los Angeles-The two running backs Allen and Jackson are the core of the team 
and they display incredible strength as their running plays unfold. Their 
defense is tough.

Washington-This is an extremely well balanced and powerful team. They are 
aiming for the championship with a consistent game.

San Francisco-There are several stars on this team, including quarterback 
Montana wide receiver rice and free safety Lott. They were said to be the 
most powerful team last season.

Dallas-Although a traditionally strong team, last season they seemed to 
weaken. But never count them out. This year with running back Walker they 
aim to make a comeback.

New York-Superstar team leader Taylor holds the defense together which is 
out to destroy any offense. Quarterback Simms is the key to their offense 
and is counted on heavily.

Chicago-Chicago was the top in defense last year. On offense, Chicago’s 
rusher, Payton has been running circles around the defenses.

Minnesota-Quarterback Kramer wide receiver Carter and running back Nelson 
are the heart of the team, performing well executed plays.

=====================================================================

HOW TO WIN

Passing-Always look for the open receiver never throw to a covered one 
because it could end up an interception.

Running-Always look for the hole and go as fast as you can and make sure you 
use you stiff arm to avoid tackles.

Interceptions-Control the player with the control cross and if you stay with 
your opponent like a good defender, you’ll have a chance for an 
interception.
