HOWEVER, once you pick a team, you cannot use them again FOR THE REMAINDER of the season.
Generally , we have all crapped out by week #10 on a 16-17 week season.
I won this pool a couple of years ago by lasting to week 8 or 9 and won because I was the only guy left standing.
Stupid,ridiculous upsets will kill all of us eventually in this pool, so dont take it too seriously, like we do on the other 3 pools, which really are true tests of NFL knowledge. This one is just fun. The best part is the moaning that goes in in the Comment Section, especially after Week #1, when typically 20% of the pool drowns...
Enjoy, its open now for swimming...Watch out for sharks!
Thanks, I just joined this survival league. Now I'm in both a pickem and survival league, only thing needed is a fantasy football league.
3 years ago, I won my office survival league, but over the past two years? I've been eliminated after only one week. I've actually selected the Browns during consecutive week one's, and have been burnt two times. Thankfully Cleveland is playing the Eagles this year come week one, which means, I'll finally stay far away from Cleveland. During week one of 2010, they were @ Tampa Bay, and lost by 3 points. Last year they hosted the Bengals and lost by 4 points.
Hopefully someone lasts longer than 8-9 weeks, because I'm trying to last until the playoffs.
