The NFL in 2000 was wild. Bigger Pads, astroturf, violent hits, fullbacks, and many other things that made this time period unique.

Tecmo Super Bowl was and still is legendary! Also you missed NFL Quarterback Club '98 for the N64 which was the first game that really started to bring realism including the rumble pak on hits and names on the back of the jersey which was the first game I ever saw to have that.

Mike Alstott is my favorite player of all time. I grew up 60 miles from Tampa so Bucs games were all we got and I was a kid when he was in his prime. I'd kill to see him in his prime again.

Alstott was the total definition of a fullback. I loved Bettis, Riggins, Czonka, Rathman, just to name a few. However, Alstott (A-Train) was the greatest. He was poetry in motion as he plowed into defenders and just kept going.

2:24 - A T1 line was much faster than that weird speed you cited there, but yeah, the internet sucked back then. Most people were still on dial-up. Streaming sports in high quality was still a Star Trek / 2001 Space Odyssey fantasy.

Man I still kill with full backs on madden. Full back runs and throw to the tight ends
Wired for Understanding
The only people to run similarly to Alstott was Mike Turner for the Falcons and Marshawn Lynch.

A-Train was a beast, I remember watching a game in the early 2000's when Alstott had a clear path to the end zone, but a defender foolishly stomped at him acting as if he was going to hit him. Alstott changed course and ran his ass over in route to a touchdown. Perfect example of the saying "you mess with the bull you get the horns".

And back in the early 2000's, only white guys would cut over the middle and usually get hung out to dry and thus a lot of injuries and early retirements. Wayne Chrebet and a very young Wes Welker are 2 that pop into my head right away, Especially Chrebet. ...actually this really hasn't changed at all come to think of it.

You should have just titled this video how the NFL was different by Allstot and the utilized fullback. Could have probably doubled the run time if you covered absolutely everything that was different but love the video as always anyway. Cheers! 🥂 🏈 🏈 🏈

Mike Alstott would be a badass in today’s NFL. Miss sports center way to political now. Might as well combine CNN and ESPN together. Loved the hard hitting plays back then. Understand the need to evolve but ignorance was bliss.

You are making me feel old. I was 35 in 2000. lol. I would like to see somebody do a video of when the Cowboys brought the Shotgun formation back to the NFL in 1975. I remember it was quite the talk of the Sports world being it had been all but abandoned in the 50's

Mike alstot used to wear a vest that was attached to 2 big ass chains that he would attach to his F450 and he would straight walk around his property just pulling a fucking truck. Lol.

I played full back and wore 49 because Richardson was the man on Madden he was your all around back and to be honest would of played halfback or a 3rd down back in today’s game Lorenzo Neal was your big blocker pancake hits and another one of my idols and A Train was your bowling ball who was a slobber knocker also another one of my idols and another reason why I had a big ass neck roll lol

I'll always wonder what the Rams would have done had Warner not been hurt. They were 6-0 and looked even better than they'd looked the year prior, and then Warner hurt his hand. They went 2-4, and looked really average, after Trent Green took over, but those first 6 games were amazing to watch.

Don't really understand this video. How old is this kid 10. It was not that long ago. First, the way people took in entertainment speaks to the evolution of technology not sports. People still did the same thing back then though. betting on sports, playing along, and watching it 24/7. In terms of video games, yes it was a big deal from 1996 through 2000 it did change a lot. But EA was king back then, the other ones were a joke. Madden was the king since 1993. And it again just speaks to technology not football. Lastly and the most off base was the play. Yes the game was physical but that did not change until years later. Also the best teams even in 2021 still have the old guard players. Defense is still the most important part of the game. And TE, HB, and RBs may be used differently but big formations are still used. And the change to Running QBs is old school, maybe not 2000 but the change is not new. To speak to Black Qbs which was not spoken of in this video in the AFC central alone in 2000 they had 3 starting QBs that were black. The highlight, the super bowl at the end, was probably the worst and most boring super bowl of all time.

My Chargers were historically awful. And in hindsight, they were literally 1 point away from 0-16.
Mr. Fuzzyflippers
My first experience with NFL gaming was actually 2K on the Dreamcast. Since I didn't really use the internet until a few years later, I memorized a lot of the rosters entirely with that game lol.
