Default FOOTBAL, Survivor Pool Thread

Might be a little early to start this but a lot of us are in Survivor Pools, let's get a year long thread going. Strategy, Picks, brags and General Surviror Pool info

Week 1 is always the hardest week IMHO who ya got?

Early thinking, especially this year with shortened training camps, pick against teams with new coaches, new QB's, teams relying heavily on rookies, and as always, go against the bad teams.

Early thinking for week 1

I like Cleveland at home over Cinn. Cinn is a bad team with a rookie QB, I'm looking to go against them early and often. It would be nice to get a win out of Cleveland

Manning looks like he will not play in Week 1. Indy would have had their hands full at Houston even with Manning. Houston's D always makes them tough to back but Indy without Manning shouldn't be able to stay with the high powered Houston offence.

I like KC at home over Buffalo...it's Buffalo...'nuff said

tilt PJ strategy?

i am going to finish watching the preseason, but i think you picked a bad one. KC is going to be worse where the Bills are going to be better, at least on defense. the Bills KC game last year went into overtime, remember.


look good:

Jacksonville(home) over Tennesse

Houston(home) over Indy(without manning)

Cleveland(home) over Cinci - Probably only time of the season you can take cleveland comfortably

Arizona(home) over carolina

Chargers(home) over Minnesota

I like The Arizona pick

The only one I don't like here for a survivor format is Jacksonville. Yea, it's a great spot to use a team you'll never want to use again anyway, but Jacksonville is so bad it wouldn't really be that surprising if Tennessee came in and eeked out a win (even though they are fairly bad themselves).

+1 to the Arizona bandwagon for Week 1 imo.

Not too many times you can ever confidently use the Chiefs in such a format other than week 1.

Chargers are a lock for the most part but are an auto-pick when they play KC twice.

So is this an actual survivor pool or just a thread for discussion by those in actual survivor pools?
