I didn't MEAN to pick against the Saints two years in a row, but at least this time I'm smart enough to make it out of the first week. (I wanted to pick the Thursday game just to know immediately how things would go for me - also, I was too chicken to put any faith in the Pack or the Vikings.)

spf wins this year's honours in the "forgot to make a pick in Week 1" race.

(The game's ALMOST over, but I think I'm safe in calling it)

That Indy pick is interesting. I would have thought people would want to keep away from Indy until they are playing a really bad team (despite the loss, people know that the Saints are NOT a bad team). I don't know that I would pick the Seahawks any other week, so I went with them.

I am a little scared that I went with the majority of the people though. This could only spell Miami-style doom for us, because it was the Houston/Miami game from two years ago that killed most of us right?

Well, the idea is to advance to the next week. I thought Indy would win (I have them as my second best pick for the week in my weekly pool), so I went with them. I'm not convinced that the Saints are THAT great, so I wasn't too concerned.

You also want to save your Indy pick for a guaranteed win, not a "they'll probably win, but their opponent is really good too" pick.

I wish I had looked a little further, as I probably would have hopped on the Seattle bandwagon, rather than putting my week in Damon Huard's hands.

Sorry, I don't mean to disappoint, but I think Philly has the second best chance to win this week. I could be wrong, and I might be, but we'll find that out on Sunday.

I took Seattle in my other Survival league and I didn't want to lose in the first week in both leagues with the same pick.

Go Green Bay! :)

(2) It's not a crappy scan, the tickets have an "aged" look to them this year.

Nobody selected a Monday game, so these ARE your current standings.

Biggest victory this week: IND (31), PIT (27), NWE (24) (I suppose this could change if there's a real rout tonight)

Biggest victories this week: PITTSBURGH (+23), GREEN BAY (+22), DALLAS (+17), TAMPA BAY (+17) - totally meaningless, but I'm 2 for 2 in calling the rout this year, so watch me brag for now. (So is Sec19Row53.)

Too bad Janikowski isn't such a choke artist or we'd have REALLY thinned out the herd today. ;-)

I'm not bragging. If I do, I'm guaranteed to lose the next week.

Why? It's worked for me three weeks in a row.

Looks like everyone picked New England, Pittsburgh, or Carolina, so I guess there are no eliminations this week. Now I just have to figure out which road team will pull out the win for Week 4, heh heh heh...



Why yes, I am both a musician and a lawyer. Thanks for asking. :)

Picking against Buffalo is so easy, isn't it? (Of course, I used to think that about KC...)

In my mind, there were two really obvious picks this week. I TOTALLY locked in Dallas at first...and then a little voice in my head told me "St. Louis is much more likely to get the upset than the Chiefs. The Chiefs are AWFUL. Besides, you want to save the Dallas pick!" Which just goes to show: people, don't listen to the voices in your head.

    I was close to going with the Norv can't really screw things up to the point where Herm Edwards can actually 'Play to Win the Game' idea, but, St. Louis missing their running back and having the quarterback play with busted ribs seemed an even better lock. Plus, I was saving San Diego for Oakland, might have to dump that strategy. Norv Turner: The Man Who Brings Playoff MartyBall to the Regular Season.
