I just joined as well. This is a continuous Pick 'em league, so you will be able to play it all season. The league I made is a Survival league in which you must pick a winner each week or you are out. Both look like fun, we just need to get more people to join them!!

Maybe neither. She picks with her heart and that means I have to talk her down from San Francisco every week. This year that might not be such a hassle in terms of the Niners potential, but in past years it's a damned shame....lol.

Sorry, I'm a newbie & didn't know how everyone would feel about that, so I left it at it's default, which was off.


I can look to see if it will let me turn it on, if that's what everyone (or even most everyone) wants.

I think most people prefer it disabled.

I usually play in at least one league that's straight up picks like what we have and then one league with the confidence enabled.

I personally don't care one way or another as long as I have 1 straight up pickem league.

Along with all my fantasy teams, I've got a pickem league and a pick against the spread league. Picking against the spread is tough

One more question; don't know if everyone has peeked at the standings but it seems like 5 folks are in 1st place and umpteen folks are in 6th place. We all have one correct. WTH? Why isn't everyone who didn't try to pick an upset (meaning pick the Vikes) in 1st place??

The five people who are in first picked New Orleans to score the most points this week which is the second tie breaker. Considering the Saints only scored 14 points I would assume that a lot of teams will score more points this week.

Yeah, hopefully it won't come down to the 2nd tiebreaker

No. It might sound arrogant and I don't have the pick record to back this up, but I don't pay attention to what others do entirely. Of course I like to see the trend, but in the end I go where I go. Same with baseball-type fantasy games. They are fans of all types, some informed, some not. Actually, if I had to guess what percentage of football fans in this country had extensive knowledge of the Texans I would go with, say, 16%.

As for this situation most people in the nation (I think) watch ESPN and get little to no insight on many teams, Texans included.

So, I was talking to this guy I work with in Culver City, CA. And he's talking about all the great games this weekend and how picking the games is kinda tough. And he listed a couple of the tough games and I mentioned the Colts @ Texans. And he said to me, "Dude. I hate to break it to you but that game's really easy to call. No way in hell the Texans win."

And so I said, "Dude. Texans win that game. Period."

And he told me I was a homer and that he'd buy me a case of Diet Dr. Pepper if the Texans win. So I told him, "Cool, thanks for the case, I appreciate it."

He laughed.

And I asked so what would you have wanted in the remote outside chance that the Colts were able to find a way to win. And he said that the event of the Colts losing was so remote that he'd feel like he was stealing from me if I had to give him anything. So he just wants me to call and say I was wrong.

I can't wait to get a case of DDP from that smug Raider fan.

To be honest: I picked the Colts to win only because I don't want to be a homer and be wrong. I would much rather be wrong with Houston winning.

Speedy shot an e-mail my way and hooked me up for Hog Skin Picks pick 'em league again. In this league last year I finished in 7th out of 12. I need redemption...lol.

There was also a TexansTalk pick 'em and survivor league last year and I was wondering if those will be resurrected (?).

Damn it's glad the lockout is over. :D

I hope so. I need vindication for last year.

I certainly would be happy to get a second pick 'em league on the board just like last year, survivor too if there are no objections. :thisbig:

Speedy's board had plenty of room and I hope we can fill that one up more this year. We have plenty of time to get them online. As always for me, two boards are better than one (plus a survivor board)....lol.

The only reason I haven't posted an underdog yet is I'm not yet believing some of the lines for the week. There are some questionable one's like the Falcons being an underdog to the Bucs. Right now I have six underdog picks in this league: 49ers, Dolphins, Falcons, Texans, Bears & Redskins. This could be a horrible week for me.

After getting knocked out in survivor with this game? No. I didn't bang my head or give it a 2nd thought. The game went exactly like I was expecting, except one thing; the Baltimore offense didn't show up to play and Baltimore still almost won it. I didn't expect Flacco & Rice to take a bye week but I did expect the Jaguars to struggle on offense.

Yeah, damn that was a weird game. IIRC, Baltimore had zero 1st downs well into the 3rd. That can't be right, it almost numbs the mind, but I think that's pretty close.

Sorry about survivor. For what it's worth I had my worst showing yet. I was gone by Week 4...lol.
