I know there's a ton of us who participate in survivor pools on here. Just wanted to get this thread up so we can post our plays and have a discussion as to who the best plays, most common plays, etc are from week to week.

The Pats and Colts will be popular picks this week and rightfully so although I feel a lot better with the Colts at home. The Pats should win but the Bills always plays them tough at home.

I'm going Indy on both my teams, but I'm starting to think that Bucs over the Jets is a ballsy move that I might throw one of those picks against. Generally I hate being that risky week 1 cause I've been booted first week before, but no way I can see the Jets winning, right?

Great idea V0dka. I'm leaning towards Indy @ home but nothing final yet. TB is enticing with how bad the Jet have looked this preseason.

Maybe instead of a yearly thread a weekly thread maybe better...Just a suggestion.

The Patriots will have better spots than a division game on the road... They are obviously still a solid pick but there's no better week to play the Colts than in week 1. If your pool is massive you can't "waste" the Patriots in week 1. Of course, plenty of people will still pick the Colts but by saving the Patriots for later in the season you leave yourself with more options.
I back the realest and original Polanco :-)

I'm going with Tampa. I'll save the Colts for one of their games vs the Jags or Titans.


Anyone considering the Pats may want to wait until at least next week. Not many lopsided games, and they get the Jets at home.

that's risky... I actually have a huge bet on the Jets for a small home upset (the spread is only 3 points). No way would I take a road team in week 1 unless it's the Patriots, let alone the Buccaneers. Good luck though; I understand wanting to save the Colts for later but this is pretty much ideal for them.. Raiders are worse than a division game against the Titans or Jags.

Have to say, it's hard to sway from the Colts. I've learned week one I want to roll with the safest pick as possible.

The Rams seem likely a sneaky pick too, but I'm not that brave right now.

my bad, thought this was the week 1 thread. But you're right, lets keep it to one main thread for the whole year :)


There was one main thread? And you said the same thing last year, lol. However you want to do it is fine though, doesn't matter to me. I just personally prefer yearly threads because I can bookmark a single page and not have to search throughout the forum for the week's thread.

Stay away from the "obvious" and "popular" is the key to victory !

Biggest spread right now is NE-9.5 @ Buffalo. But remember when Buffalo knocked off NE last year? But I highly doubt it happens again.
