  • Survivor Week 1

    It's time to discuss whom we're going to take as our first-week survivor.

    In case you don't know what this is, you need to pick a team to just win each week. If that team wins, you stay alive. If that team loses, you're out. You can't pick the same team twice.

    These are guidelines I use:

    1. Never pick road teams
    2. Never pick a bad team
    3. Never pick a public play
    4. Never pick a team that could either be looking ahead or behind

    The 16 home teams in Week 1 are:

    Indianapolis
    Minnesota
    Green Bay
    St. Louis
    Buffalo
    Houston
    Washington
    NY Jets
    Cleveland
    Jacksonville
    San Diego
    Oakland
    Seattle
    Dallas
    Cincinnati
    San Francisco

    Knocking the bad teams off, we have:
    Indianapolis
    St. Louis
    NY Jets
    Jacksonville
    San Diego
    Seattle
    Dallas
    Cincinnati
    San Francisco

    Indy is playing the Saints, they're out.
    St. Louis is playing the Panthers, possibility.
    Jets are playing the Patriots, they're out.
    Jaguars are playing the Titans, possibility.
    Chargers are playing the Bears, possibility.
    Seattle is playing the Bucs, possibility.
    Dallas is playing the Giants, possibility.
    Cincinnati is playing the Ravens, they're out.
    San Francisco is playing the Cardinals, possibility.

    We've narrowed it down to:
    St. Louis over Carolina
    Jacksonville over Tennessee
    San Diego over Chicago
    Seattle over Tampa Bay
    Dallas over NY Giants
    San Francisco over Arizona

    Teams looking ahead:
    San Francisco at St. Louis in Week 2

    We've now narrowed it down to:
    St. Louis over Carolina
    Jacksonville over Tennessee
    San Diego over Chicago
    Seattle over Tampa Bay
    Dallas over NY Giants

    We don't know what the public is betting on yet.

    OK, so what do you guys think? What's the strongest team we can choose out of those five?

    Guessing most people would say Seattle but my money would be on Jacksonville since I feel Tenn is no good and Young is overrated but that's just my opinion I know many people will disagree

        WALT:

        WITH THE RULES YOU STATEDI THINK YOU HAVE ELIMINATED A FEW TEAMS I WOULD RECONSIDER AS POSSIBLE PLAYS .

        HOU OV KC --- I WOULD LIKE THIS ONE BETTER IF CROYLE WAS STARTING INSTEAD OF HUARD , BUT NEWLY SIGNED RB MAY NOT PLAY THIS GAME AND IF THATS TRUE I LIKE HOU HERE TO WIN THE GAME EVEN IF EDWARDS HAS BEEN GAME PLANNING FOR HOU FOR WEEKS NOW . HUARD WILL BE LOOKING OVER HIS SHOULDER WONDERING WHEN HE WILL GET THE HOOK IF HE DOESN'T PLAY WELL AND THATS NOT A GOOD THING .

        S D OV CHI --- ONCE CHI IS PINNED BACK DEEP NEAR THEIR OWN END ZONE GROSSMAN IS IN TROUBLE . FUMBLE , INT. OR 3 AND OUT ARE A GOOD CHANCE TO HAPPEN . S D WITH THEIR DEF WINS THIS ONE IN MY OPINION .

        OAK OV DET --- IF OAK CAN MOVE THE BALL AND GET THE DEF SOME REST THEY CAN BE ALOT BETTER THAN LAST YEAR , AND WITH CULPEPPER AT QB I THINK THIS TEAM WILL SUPPRISE IN THE EARLY GOING OF THE SEASON . THEY WILL MOVE THE BALL AND SCORE , AND DONT FORGET THAT FG KICKER HAS A VERY STRONG LEG .

        ALSO AGREE WITH YOUR DALL PICK AS A POSSIBILITY .

        NOW FOR A QUESTION OR TWO . IM ENTERING A LAST MAN STANDING RUN BY STATIONS CASINO IN VEGAS , THEY WILL PRINT A WEEKLY CARD OF GAMES TO PICK FROM BUT ITS AGAINST THE SPREAD AND ALL 1/2 POINT LINES . NOW HOW OR WHAT RULE CHANGES WOULD YOU IMPLEMENT HERE . THIS IS MY 1st ATTEMP AT THIS KIND OF CONTEST AND IM NOT SURE OF THE RIGHT WAY TO PROCEED . GOT ANY POINTERS FOR ME ???? THANKS TOMMY B.

          Easy easy. Cowboys over Giants.

          My next pick would be Jacksonville over Titans. I just don't see VY pulling out a win.
          2014-2015 Kentucky Wildcats (38-1)

          Congrats to Wisconsin. Even more congrats to UK haters.

            Is everyone picking their own, or is this to help you decide (Walter)?

              Thanks for your input. Well, as far as the spread's concerned, there aren't really any rules except you don't want to back a public favorite. That contest is much, much harder than the regular survivor.

                I'm leaning toward Dallas too.

                What about Seattle? Tampa is like 4-26 on the West Coast.

                  I guess we can do a contest here on this site, but this thread was to help me make a survivor pick for the site in general.

                    Well if it was a contest, I wouldn't say all the reasoning behind my picks. Anyway, here's what I think...


                    The way Carolina's offense has been playing lately, I'd be very tempted to take St Louis in the Edward Jones dome. We know the Rams always put up points at home, and I don't think Carolina can match them.

                    Last year I would've taken Seattle over Tampa Bay in a heartbeat, but I haven't been following the Bucs this offseason, and I'm not really sure what they bring to the table. Both of these picks are probably fairly solid though, IMO.

                    I'd be very hesitant to take an intra-division game for a survivor pick. Teams in the same division know each other exceptionally well, and even if one team is clearly better than the other, these games always have the ability to go either way.

                      Your last point is the only reason I'm hesitating with Dallas.

                        Not a good person to write up things, I like San Diego they got a great DEF team this year. Can't CHI put up numbers? I think so. still like San Diego to win

                              Jax

                              Jax Is Looking Better With Garrard Under Center . Maybe They Open Up The Offense Now Instead Of Trying To Win With Defense. I Cant Take Them Laying Points And Then Losing The Cover And Winning A Close Game . It Might Change Now But Seeing Is Believing . Tommy B
