1) Pick against Carolina (unless it's a crappy team like Arizona) 2) Pick the Thursday game
(Looks at next week's schedule. Sees Pittsburgh hosting Carolina on Thursday. Yelps in delight. Curses when he realized that he picked Pitt when they played Cleveland in Week 6.)
It is the policy of the documentary crew to remain true observers and not interfere with its subjects. "Well. Shit." -hansen9j Go Pack Go! (8-5, 2nd NFC North) Let's Go Riders! (getting pretty tired of being the bridesmaid)

Oh crap, was there a game last night? (At least it wasn't any good (hopefully?)?)

I have to say, I'm surprised by how many people picked Oakland, but I guess by this time of the season a lot of folks probably still had Oakland left to pick.
If you are going to pick a schizoid Oakland team (like CalzoneLad) picking them the week that they play an awful Denver team with a demoralized quarterback who misses the playcaller who helped him (excel is probably not the right word.) not actively suck - this is probably the week to pick Oakland.

Well, that was my thinking anyway. There really aren't a ton of quality teams left to pick by Week 15, so it's kind of a crapshoot. This is rarefied air for me, I don't think I have lasted past Week 8 or 9 ever.

The league extends to the playoffs this year, but y'all are in surprisingly good shape as far as having playoff teams to pick.
I think the conclusion that the end is near either way regarding this decision is false. Had the NFL prevailed, it COULD have tried to use the "we're one entity" in negotiations. But, they already do that, so no big deal.
