Miami has 6 games against AFC East none of which are sure thing. This was the week to pick them. Trying to save good teams to later weeks as much as I can. Not sure if my strategy will work though. 

The winner will get $100 Visa Gift Card. Courtesy of JetNation, the site that cares.

Just joined. You'll all be sorry...

55 signed up.  

Sign up will remain open until just before 1 o'clock kickoff on Sunday.  

So... what are the rest of you waiting for?  This is the easiest game to play and it takes under a minute of your time each week.

Already done.  Not even a question.  Home game against a non-division opponent with a poor offense, in the first ever game for the Bowles regime?  There won't ever be a better game to take them

Same pick here.

77 entries.  Not too shabby.    Now, what's the over/under on how many picked the Jets?  Nationally it's under 6%.  For our group, I'd say about 50 or more or roughly 2/3 will pick the Jets this week.

from this post I'm guessing we can only use one team each time?

I will need a head start.

Crushlove - who did you pick last week?  I saw you were knocked out?

50% of the board is taking the Saints over TB this week.  I want to dare to be different but its the only game that seems like a lock.

I picked Miami this week. Stupid me. 

I took the Saints.  Thought about Miami but I hate them too much to take them.

You ate your password.  Admit it.

Same strategy I used.  Hence the Jets week 1, Saints week 2.  lol. 

Also, I have a weird upset feeling in that Miami game and dont really know why.  The Jags are the least talented team in Football and are really banged up but I feel like they are due to win a game at home one of these days. 

If you're pick plays on Sunday, can you change it after the Thursday game?  Or does it lock in tonight?

It locks in on Sunday I believe but not sure. Dcat can advise but I guess I will take my chances and stick with Miami.

On paper, everything points to the Dolphins.  But I could never trust the dolphins on the road, especially a Philbin led Dolphins.  Best of luck to you.  I'll stick with the Saints at home.  Plus the rest of the Saints home schedule is pretty risky until mid December, so this is a pretty good time to use them.

The problem with this strategy is that the NFL is a ******* crapshoot for the first 4-5 weeks of the season while new storylines play out.  My general rule for survivor pools: survive early, don't worry about "saving teams" until you're basing it on this season's results and not last season's.  I've won a few survivor pools with that strategy

Week 2?  That's the earliest I've ever been bounced.  

Thanks Obama

Thanks Idzik

Thanks Sean Payton, Drew Brees and that whole whacky gang of 'Aints.

over and out!  

 

 

You are not alone ... I think just under 50% of ALL players took NO this week. 

Including me. :(
