2017 NJDevs Survival Football

Recommended Posts

aylbert    63

The rules to survival football are quite easy.   Each week, pick one team to win their game - no spreads, just win.   You can only use that team once though for the year... after that, you must pick a new team to win.    We do double elimination...  so you can afford to be risky up front or you can follow the crowd with the odd on favorites, etc...  it's your call.

Picks are due before the 1PM Sunday game (so if you miss the Thursday game, no biggie... you just can't pick the winner after the fact - it won't let you.  ha)

Running out of time to join with both strikes.    Can still get in for the night games or use the Monday game

9 Teams in so far;  still another week to join I think; but you'll be in true survival mode without the second strike safeguard.

All 9 teams survived week 1...

Aylbert, EagleJelly, Jarek, Picking from a Hat went with Buffalo as they beat the lowly Jets 21-12  (although the Jets did cover the spread; which might have been painful if we played it that way)
Big Blue and Goodell went with the Steelers, who defeated the Browns by 3, 21-18
Swamps and Champs Pick-o-the-week went with the Falcons, who defeated the Bears 23-17
And siting alone but still pretty, VALUE went with the Rams who smacked the Luckless Colts, 46-9.

On to Week 2.

Last week was real tough picking, I'm a bit surprised we went 9-9.  I hate picking division games on the road so that pretty much ruled out the Steelers and Bills, but I almost got dinged picking the Falcons on the road (and they weren't even my initial pick, I don't even remember who my initial pick was - maybe it was the Steelers). 

This week probably everyone'll pick the same game other than ayl who likes to be derivative in case that game somehow blows up.

That said, my current pick is the Ravens over the Browns because of precisely what you mentioned...   too many people on Oakland this  week.

Hah I noticed that about you in these pools.

Yeah I'm going chalk there obviously...not only cause it's gonna be 45-10 this week but also cause it's not like the Raiders have too many other complete no-brainer games where you have to take them.

There was another obvious pick this week "whoever's playing the Colts" pick, I don't give a damn which Johnson is running the ball this week, the Colts are an unwatchable disaster :P

Well at least my game's over early, the Cards had to sweat out Jacoby Brissett before squeaking one out :lol:

2 chumps... and the rest know winners (even if OT was needed).

Let's start with Eaglejelly and Jerek forgetting to pick for week 2...   that's an easy strike.   Fortunately you have one more strike but you have lost your safety net.

Outside of that, we had some variety this week with  Big Blue, Swamps and Picking from a Hat going against the Jets wisely ---  with the Raiders smacking them 45-20.
Goodell went with the Cardinals who squeaked out over the Colts, 16-13 in OT.
The Champs went gutsy with the Chiefs over the Eagles... and prevailed 27-20.
Lastly, Aylbert went with the Ravens as they defeated the Browns 24-10.

On to week 3...  first chance for elimination.    EagleJelly has a pick in; Jarek does not so far.

I know I had chosen the Raiders, but I guess it didn't save it. I wasn't allowed to make a pick for the Monday game when I noticed the issue on Sunday :rant:
