APBA Pro Football Replays and More!


I’ve used the APBA Football Master game to replay several seasons.  The Master game provides the “ebb and flow” of an actual contest and allows the “coach” the opportunity to deploy multiple personnel packages to mirror today’s game or the single platoon system of yesteryear. On numerous occasions, I’ve matched team records and have come extremely close to replicating team and individual statistics.

My original purpose for creating this blog was solely to present my current and previous replays, offer “method of play” alternatives, share innovations, provide tools for evaluating individual cards, post links and informational tips to assist with preparing for and conducting season replays.

Of course season replays will always remain the focal point, however, it’s my goal and ambition to cover all aspects of APBA Football ranging from historical, solo tournaments, league play and the finer points of Face-to-Face play. To accomplish this, I’ve enlisted the help of the finest minds in all APBA Football. My team of authors have been former card makers for the game company, innovators, league commissioner, writers for the APBA Journal, and APBA Hall of Famers.

Site authors are Mr. Mark Zarb, Mr. Ray Dunlap, Mr. Dave Urban, Mr. Greg Wells, Mr. Phil Molloy, Mr. Dan Flynn and Mr. Scott Griffin.

I’ve created a quick reference site directory to aid visitors searching for the 20 most popular topics not found in the upper site menu (Home, Method of Play, YPC Ratings, etc).

Boyd’s 1997 NFL Replay Game 65 – NY Jets at Cincinnati

Jets continue to surprise with an OT win in Cincinnati

Bill Parcels’ total reinvention of the NY Jets continued Sunday versus the Bengals at Pro Cynergy Field. The Jets squeaked out an overtime victory over the Bengals, 23-20, and are now 4-1 on the season. Neil O’Donnell got hot in the second half as he completed 19 of 20 passes, including 13 straight.

In OT, O’Donnel connected with Wayne Chrebet on a 26-yard pass that set the Jets up deep in Bengal territory. After a few runs from Adrian Murrell, John Hall kicked a 20-yard FG to win the game, 23-20.

The Bengals are now 1-3 on the season. Jeff Blake completed 17 of 34 passes for 204 yards and a TD. He also rushed for 42 yards. The Jets’ Defense held All-Pro WR Carl Pickens to just one catch on the day for 14 yards.

The Jets will take their 4-1 record into Indianapolis to take on the struggling Colts, while the Bengals will travel to Jacksonville to take on the 1-3 Jaguars.
