    :lol:

    Yeah, that's a pain in the ass. I agree. I've been caught by that on more than one occassion. I'm hoping this year I get past week one. After winning the inagural allbuffs.com sole survivor pool about 4 years ago, I've been in a slump. Get past the first week, and it's a lot easier. I mean, who would have guessed that Tennessee would go into Pittsburgh and win in week one? Bastards.

    What we did in a league i was in last year was automatically give you the Monday night home team if you forgot to get your pick in. It was not perfect, but it was nice to not be automatically out if you spaced it for a week.

    OK everybody. Get your picks in today!

    Philly appears to be the odds on favorite this week. I went with them.

    Negative.

    But I'm laughing at the folks who picked the Bears over Buffalo and the Chefs over Tennessee. That's probably a third of the people in the pool gone in one week.

    Ha!

    I didn't get in ontime. I would have played the Steelers. Yes that game went to OT but Cleveland hasn't won in Pitt since 2009 I believe.

    Jets were the easy call.

    Me neither, but by the time I logged in to make my pick, I was stuck with the afternoon games and probably would have gone with the Broncos and lost anyway.

    I thought it was by the spread? Maybe that is why I lost last year in the first game...

    False. The Niners were. That was my first pick then switched to the Eagles. I was not a happy camper whey I got done with work for the day and saw the Eagles trailing 14-17. The Niners were never in danger. Dallas is so friggin bad.

    Not done by the spread. Just pick the game. It's a lot harder than it sounds. How many people do you think thought Chicago was an easy win at home on opening day against the Bills?

    Packers over the Jets looks to be the 'easy' pick this week.

    I hate Thursday night football. It's unnatural.

    I can't remember who I picked. Probably the Broncos. Watch them blow it.

    After this week, we'll have a decent idea of who the true garbage teams in the NFL are. It seems as though Dallas might fall into that category. Possibly the Chiefs as well. I don't know if this week will tell us anything about the Chiefs, though. Losing at home to the Titans on opening day is pretty awful. Titans might be better than expected, too.

    DesertDawg, you're out. Gold Plated Pintos, beat it. You're out. GoldenBuff? Forget it. You're out. Super4DB is out.

    And the late games have not even started yet.

    Still in. How many allbuffers are still in?

    If da Bears hold on, that's going to kill a lot of people.

    The Bills looking like a very solid team this year. Jacksonville looking like dog poo.
