    heh - yeah. That's how I got eliminated, too. I forgot to put in a pick sometime around week 7. Just forgot. It sucks having NFL games on Thursday. I'm never thinking about NFL games on a Wednesday afternoon.

    Remember last year everybody got knocked out on the same week and we had to restart the league after Week 4 or something. Funny stuff.

    In but damn. I don't like the week one options. Indy? Really? Indy is the best team I can find in week one? That does not bode well. I would take Buffalo but they ****ed me two years ago in week one when they beat the crap out of KC.

    Hey everybody - just a reminder - get your picks in. The season starts tomorrow.

    I'm a Steelers fan this weekend.

    Week one is always the hardest. If you manage to survive 2-3 weeks, you get a pretty good idea of who the good teams and bad teams are. It's getting through the first couple weeks that's the trick.

    Yea, an Indy loss would knock about half of us out.

    Stupid Buffalo is beating NE. If Buffalo wins, that will be the second time in 3 years I went out in week 1 because Buffalo won.

    It's ****ing Buffalo!

    Well, I'm out. I saw Buffalo/NE and Indy/Oakland as trap games, but thought I had it pegged pretty well with the Steelers over Tennessee. Once again, the NFL and it's damn parity have bit me in the ass.

    The fatal flaw of this particular game is that you are out if you don't pick by the Thursday night game.

    I'm out.

    Good luck y'all.

    Yea I don't see why missing the Thursday game should eliminate you. It simply gives you one less game to choose from, which is a disadvantage, not an advantage. :huh:

    Still in and trying to find the games where low end teams can win one so I get them off of my list of must picks. So far, so good.

    I should have known that to keep a pick that was shared by only 0.19% of the players last week. Oops. Good luck all!

    And the Jacksonville rule finally jumps up and bites us all. Good run to week 10, though. :huh:

    I was really hoping to take it all year. Really wasn't that worried about making it through this week. Seemed like a safe way to use up Tennessee... :sad1:

    Uh oh. Everyone is out now with no winner. Another reload year.





    I will reset it after Monday and will probably add the playoffs option (which means it will be wise to keep some of the playoff teams alive once the season is over)

    I'll see if Yahoo does that on Tuesday. If not then I will reset the group.

    Congrats other co winners. I knew the "pick whoever Jacksonville was playing" strategy would eventually fail. But it worked pretty damn well for a long time.

    I'm in a 600+ person survivor pool. I'm one of 23 that are still undefeated. I switched from Jax to NYG on Wednesday. :smile2:

    The other solid way to go is to pick whoever is playing Buffalo. Oops....
