Post Survival Football
You pick one team each week to win.
When you get it wrong...you are done for the year.

GOOD LUCK!!

I'm in.

Does this league allow us to pick the same team more than once or is it an elimination pick -- once a team has been picked, the player may not pick it again?

I believe once you pick a team, you can no longer pick it for the rest of the year.
Makes it a little more intense this way.

I like that! Makes it alot more fun and people can't just keep choosing the Pats against teams like the Raiders week in and week out. I'm in!

Dont worry Demi...I am usually out pretty quick myself.
If we were picking preseason I would have been out already.

So if you are not already in, join now!!!!

I'm going Vikings first game, because I'm pretty sure they'll win it, and you kind of want to see how all the other teams come out the gates. There are always some surprises. But you can gauge your fav team, and I think the Vikes will take Atlanta for sure.

I picked the same! Watch half the league pick Vikes and get eliminated 1st round. :lol:

I'm in. Never played before but have listened to others talk about this type of league.

Let me get this straight. All I do is pick a team I think will win. No spreads involved. Team wins, I win. Team loses, I watch you guys play the rest of the season. Once I pick a team to win, I can't pick that team again.

Does this all sound correct?

If you want to advance another week, take the Chiefs this week. :)

Other then the Falcons, I think the Chiefs would be the only other team in the NFL I'd take as a gimme win for the Vikes. :)

Maybe I've been to Arrowhead too many time, but I have the feeling they will beat us like a drum Sunday. I hope not, as I work with too many Chief fans and it will be a long 4 years until the return to Minnesota.

I wondered about that. Saw last night you hadn't made a pick. Should still be 3 of us left. I think we all won today.

The reminder email got buried in some other emails and I just remembered tonight. Wish it would have given me the option of picking someone in tomorrow's game :(

2 of 3 so far, the 3rd has the Pack (who are winning right now). Good luck you 3.

Congrats Mike!!!

Was it beginners luck?

BigBadBrad is my boss and it was his 1st year as well.

Last year, I believe the winner made it to week 8.

Nice win...and I'll be waiting for you next year!!!

Yes, beginners luck. That was my first year playing that type of pool.

On a side note, have you been to the last couple of games? I haven't seen you in our section, but then I may have missed you.

I've been there!
I am the one a few rows below you yelling MIKE!! MIKE!!! MIKE!!!! Waving my arms madly trying to get your attention.

:P


Just kidding man, I never miss a game, so I should always be in my seats.

I will come and have a beer with you this Sunday in Viking lot #1.

So jealous. I may get a Dallas-Vikings playoffs game, though. (Missed the regular season one).

If I get rich one of the first ways to treat myself will be season tickets and plane tickets to Minny each home game.
