NJDevils Survival Football

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

We're back to another year of Survival Football...   Pick 1 team a week to win and you survive!
Two strikes and you're out.  You know the drill.

DEADLINE IS 5 MINUTES BEFORE EACH GAME...   So if you slack, there's a Monday game to save you potentially.

This group has already begun the season. You are unable to join this group at this time.

Aint that some sh!t.

It also reverted back to 5minutes before games start...   on fvcking Thursday?      

My attempts to reset the league also fail.   It says it has reset, but all picks are locked in, etc   rather than clearing out.
I'll try again tonight to reset it.

I'd rather have us start week 2, than have to pick by Thursday each week.

So as stated before in the football draft...   i did not intend to have the deadline be Thursday nights. 

I thought I had selected five minutes before each game...  unfortunately there are only two options.   Five minutes before the first game of week or five minutes before 1pm Sunday.

Im kinda bummed that we miss out on such an upset filled week but I thought it’s best to reset and play from week two with the Sunday deadline.  Yahoo does not let you change the deadline once the league has started.

also, this means you can still join by Sunday.   So @Masked Fan   You can join now.

I'm in.... Or do I have to PM Crasher by some arbitrary time to make it official? 😒

Not sure if my theory will stick throughout the year, but picking the team playing the Eaglets will work for MOST OF IT! 🤣

Week 2: Start of the Season (Again)
Only one person (Big Blue) didn't get a pick in- it was a concern when I reset the league... 

Aylbert, Jerek's Fabulous Pick Set,  The voices in redruM's Head went with the Chargers, who defeated the Bills, 31-20.
NJDevs4978, Legend of the Clown Banner, and Psych marched with the Saints over the Browns in a 21-18 victory.
DD56 and EagleJelly went with the Rams... who shut out the Cardinals, 34-0

Lastly, Crasher makes Goodell shine! went with the Bucs, who defeated the Eagles 27-21.

Ok... we're back with the Week 3 Results!

Big Blue losing its safety net in Week 1, went with a typically reliable safety net in the Patriots, but they took the loss, 26-10 to the Lions; and ending Big Blue's season early.

Where's the Waiver Wire Bro? and Legend of the Clown banner take their first strike without even swinging with non-picks.

DD56, Eaglejelly, Psych and The Voice in redruM's Head take strike one as they went with the Vikings who had a shocking upset loss to the Bills, 27-6

Crasher makes Goodell shine! takes a strike as well, with the Colts losing to the Eagles 😏

Sooooo... did anyone want to make a correct guess?

Well, for starters...  uhmm, the Browns found a victory for the first time in forever, over the Jets... 21-17. Largely thanks to Tyrod Taylor getting injured and Baker Mayfield saving the day.  NJDevs4978 moves on.

Aylbert and Jarek's Fabulous Pick Set went with the Bears, who came from behind to grab a victory  16-14 over the Cardinals.

Seeya all next week.

Week 4:  If you wanted to survive, you made a pick... and if you made a pick, you lived.

After playing week 2, Legend of the Clown Banner, The Voice in redruM's Head and Where' the Waiver Wire Bro? are eliminated with two consecutive weeks of non-picks; exhausting their strikes.

Aylbert and DD56 move on with Jags beating the Jets, 31-12
Psych and Crasher makes Goodell shine! watched as the Packers shut out the Bills 22-0
NJDevs4978 and EagleJelly avoid an upset, as the Chargers barely knocked of the 49ers 29-27
And lastly, Jerek's Fabulous Pick Set went with the Chiefs on MNF, as they defeated the Bronco's 27-23

See you in Week 5...  get those picks in.

Week 5: So long Crasher makes Goodell Shine

We say goodbye to Masked Fan's dig of Crasher makes Goodell Shine with his non-pick.
Aylbert took his first strike with the Titans losing to the Bills, 13-12.

Eaglejelly and Jarek's Faboulous Pick Set moves on with the Saints leveling the Redskins, 43-19.
DD56 went with the Pats as they defeated the Colts 38-24.
NJDevs4978 took the Panthers who needed a last second, game winning 63 yard field goal to win 33-31 over the Giants.
and lastly, Psych took the Chargers who went on to win  over Chucky's Raiders, 26-10.

Week 6: Perfect... if you pick of course

So again, if you pick... you advance.  It's not complicated; but Jarek's Faboulous Pick Set didn't include a Week 6 selection; marking his first strike and leaving NJDevs4978 as the only team with a safety net.

DD56 and Psych went with the Texans, who defeated the Bills, 20-13.
Eaglejelly and Aylbert went with the Packers, relying on Aaron Rodgers to bring them back in the 4th quarter, 33-30.
and lastly, the still perfect NJDevs4978 went with the Vikings, who defeated the Cardinals, 27-17

Well a bloodbath today :lol:  This is why I never trust the Jets in suicide pools, actually thought there'd be a couple more picks of the Chiefs.

Next week looks pretty difficult but at least I have the handicap strike.

Week 10: Sunday, Bloody Sunday
We lost three this week; leaving only three alive.

NJDevs4978 remains perfect, in addition to DD56 staying alive with him...  as the Chiefs beat the Cardinals 26-14
Eaglejelly took his first loss, as the Eagles lost to the Cowboys, 27-20

Aylbert (Week 5- Titans) and Psych (Week 3- Vikings) get sent packing on the season, as the Jets took a first half beatdown from the Bills, losing 41-10
Jerek's Fabulous Pick Set (Week 6 non pick) took the Pats, who took a hard loss to the Titans  34-10.

Things will get interesting as the pick pool dwindles.    My office pool was decided tonight... as I lost out with the Eagles (my personal rooting interest)   
And Of course, the other guy is a Cowboy's fan... so tomorrow won't be annoying... at all.
