"If you pick the Buccaneers in week 1..."? What are you trying to say? That first game is against the Eagles on Monday night. I personally resent the implication!

Fret not, that was merely a hypothetical example from our Eagle-fan/Raider fan schizoid moderator. :P

A) Dave is correct - it was hypothetical, based on the fact that the Bucs are the Super Bowl champs and looked pretty unbeatable at the end of last year.

 

B) I will DEFINITELY be pulling for Philly in Week 1 - I love Da Boids!

 

C) Schizoid? Excuse me? Mr Niners/Bucs? Hel-loooooo.... ;)

While some survival pools make you do all of your picks at the beginning of the season before anyone can see any team play for real, we do each week's picks on a weekly basis.

I did one of those "pick all teams at beginning of year" pool. It's damn near impossible...and if you can do that, by all means, take it to Vegas and make some serious dough on it!

How is this illegal if the owner consents to giving it away?
Very. ;)

 

If I was going to give away my crappy (and somewhat broken) old keyboard based on nothing more than the goodness of my heart, no problem. But as soon as it's attached to any form of contest, there are laws that govern the activity.

 

Again, I'd gladly do it, but much like the compilation CDs from this forum not being for sale and hence eaily accomplishable, let's not complicate the pool by making it for specific gain.

 

And...uh...GO RAIDERS. :thu:

I'm up for it, count me in.

 

Last year, I knew very little about the game and really didnt even like it, so I took some advice that got me ousted in round one! This year I know more, still nothing compared to the rest of you, but at least I like the sport now after playing it, so I'm going it alone and taking no advice. Wish me luck.

 

By the way, how long did it last for last year & who won? It looked like a lot of fun but I was totally out of touch with the forums for a while.

------------------

Edit.

 

I just did the search and discovered that Mr Moderator won half way through the season. Well done Dave.

------------------

Good luck everyone!

haha...yeah maybe but as far as I'm concerned if Dallas is going to win a game this year, this is the one. All the other games look pretty unpredictable to me this early in the season.

 

I think Atlanta will be a disappointment this year and Dallas has improved a bit. Of course, I could be totally wrong...I'm no up to speed this year yet...We'll see what Atlanta's defense brings this week, they'll be the difference.

Well then we'll all shut up about it and you can just give it to "someone" when the contest is over, K? :)

Steve maybe onto something.

 

Ive seen alot of Atlanta, and if it's ANY team that is clearly out of sync in preseason and in danger of thier preseason form spilling into there regular season, it's the Falcon's. Ther O-line is atrocious!!!!

 

Hey, you guys picking Denver better be careful. The horsie's maybe walking into a hornets nest.

Cincy's clearly not good enough to beat them but if it one game that will give Marvin motivational fuel for the season...it's this one. Be careful.

TROLL . . . ish.

Ok, What the hell, I'm in.

 

Week 1- Indy (of course)

**Standard Disclaimer** Ya gotta watch da Ouizel, as he often posts complete and utter BS. In this case however, He just might be right. Eagles may soar, but Ouizels don't get sucked into jet engines.

In as much as I want to stay in the pool, I'd be gleeful if the hapless Bengals beat the Horsies in the first week!

 

But no, I don't think that'll happen. ;)

Okay, I think I got everyone up to this point.

 

For those of you who have never played one of these before, you may be in for a surprise. Traditionally, about half of the people playing get eliminated in the first few weeks, because no one really knows which teams are in what form until about week 4.

 

:evil::D

 

Who else wants to play? Step on up...

err, umm, I suppose I should've been paying attention to the pre-season form, but I haven't, so I'm gonna go for Miami. Seems safe enough (gulp, last words?)

 

I'm looking forward to the Titans-Raiders & Bucs-Eagles games.

I am torn between betting on who I think has the best chance to win, betting against who I hate, and taking a chance on a marginal team and getting a team out of the way. The teams I most wanted to bet against are playing at home, so ...

 

Miami is my choice for first week winner.
