NFL Survivor Pool 2012

Talk about the AFC, NFC, the NFL Draft, College Football... anything football that has no Washington Redskin relevance.

Which is why I finally settled on the Skins. I was saving the Pats.

I have three rules which I don't break until it becomes absolutely necessary late in the season.

Never pick a divisional game

Never pick an away team.

Never pick against the Redskins. Actually this one I don't break in any of my pools no matter when it is. It's just not fun to me to pick against the Skins, so I don't do it.

I've been in my survivor pool until late every season I played, those rules have done me well

Saving good teams is risky but I'm out with the PATS.

Good luck to the survivors.

To be clear, when the last person wins, we all start another round, right?

I'd like to but that first winner should probably be crowned as Survivor Champ 2012.

Agreed. I just noticed the results say "round 1," and I've never done this before, so I wanted clarification.

We're using a site that doesn't allow picking after they play the first game, which was on Wednesday. Normally survivor pools let you pick up until the Sunday games start, they just don't let you pick the games before that once they've started.

Just checked, I'd like to call bull but can't guarantee it wasn't my.phone, or service. I changed my pick from NO to Az, whom I picked correctly in every pool. Maybe first picks are final but I can swear it said saved. No biggie and im Not bein a poor sport or bitter just sucks to end it like this- feels like the gb game to me lol :twisted:
Any way congrats ACW, well done. Chi was about as risky a pick as AZ. Strong Ds have been doing well tho. I was leaning SF but just knew philthy was going down w their two fluke one point wins; and 7+ turnovers!

How do we make it advance to the next round? Do we have to wait until ACW gets one wrong, even though he's the only one left? That seems stupid. I will make my next round pick here.

I'm going Ravens.

I've tried to select an option to continue the game. See if you can make a pick.
