I set up the Survivor league the past few years, there is a thread for it in the FF section. I'm not sure who made the Pick'em last year, but I think it was Thunderkyss. It would probably be easier to ask him to restart it than making a whole new one. When I re-upped the Survivor league it gave me the option of inviting everyone from last year.

TK did it year before last. I don't remember who did it last year. I'm NOT an IT guy Dutch. Hell, I barely know where the keys are so I started over. Perhaps TK or whoever did it last year will see this and take it over. I wouldn't cry. :)

Sure. You'll receive an email a couple of days before the games and you simply choose who you think will win head up, no spread. Answer a couple of tie breaker questions and you're done.

Really simple so c'mon, join up!

You get 3 strikes in this one, so you can't possibly go out until week 3 concludes.

:shrug:

It's pretty easy. You pick a team you think will win. If they win you move on. If they lose you get eliminated. The catch is you can't pick the same team twice.

I believe the TexansTalk survivor is a three strikes and you're out game. Meaning if you lose in, let's say, week 1, you still have two more chances.

Keep making crazy arse picks like that and see where the trash talking gets you. I just wish we could amend the rules to allow you to pick the Cowboys again.

I wouldn't call it that crazy. The Giants are good at getting hot late in the season/post-season. Beyond that they put forth very average performances.

I really wish the Pick'em league required people to pick at least two underdogs. Some people are just constantly going with the favorites, and that's pretty lame. Might as well play against a computer.

More than a couple...I was destroyed yesterday. Tons of upsets....wasn't a good day for my football internet games like Pick'em, but I can't lie...I enjoyed the hell out of the games yesterday. It will take a few more weeks for the league to sort itself out for this season...whodathunk the Cards would beat the Pats and the Eagles back to back? Vikes over the 9ers? man, Ponder sure looked good, but we saw his potential when he played us. Great weekend....all the upsets are good for the league.

25 right after 3 weeks is probably my worst showing in quite a while, but I can see we all are having issues.

Like Vinny, I love the upsets, provided Houston win the games they should :cowboy1:. It keeps us all guessing which is a lot of fun, pick 'em or no pick 'em.

I think this has been an awesome start to the season outside of the replacement ref bs...I had Seattle Monday night so that sure was a wild ride. In the survivor I had Indy....damn that Indy defense.

ok, I'm not going to forget to make my pick for tonight. I have taken an X the last few weeks since I keep forgetting to make my pick. Of course, this week is tougher than the last two. Kevin Kolb was sacked eight times last week, the Cardinals don't have a running game despite their record and Jeff Fisher teams tend to confuse non-great QB's. Rams are at home after beating a good Seattle team last week. Toughie.

That was moi... I'm still learning about the NFL and my new love (The Texans of course) ... I only voted that way as a risky way to try and claw back some points lol .... I knew it'd be a risk as everyone went with the steelers but it paid off although I feel dirty for picking them. If they lost I'd have been happy for hexing them (as I do most teams I bet on haha)

I think more than ever, teams are evenly talented so it takes about 7 good weeks to find out who is who. Right now about one third of the league is 3-3 so its not like its easy to just say this team should beat that team...this ain't the MLB. :whip:

Some teams with bad records played nothing but good teams and some teams with great records may have played chumps to date...it's all slowly shaking out. After all these years of watching this league I'm more convinced than ever none of these talking heads and experts are right early on...Every year is unique....they are just basing their assumptions on last year and draft grades.

I got it right too...but I also took several gambles to make up ground....none of them panned out except for this one and it wasn't even all that much of a reach considering the rivalry and the Saints offense. So bottom line, I had a brutal week.

I think I'm not gonna gamble so much with the potential underdog victories this week...I need a good week.
