Survivor Pool Pick – Week 9 (2011) – Texans or Cowboys?

Posted by in NFL Survivor Pool Picks on November 4th, 2011 | 3 Comments

Question: What team would you pick in week 9 for your survivor pool?

I am trying to decide between the Oakland Raiders over Denver Broncos, Houston Texans over Cleveland Browns, or Dallas Cowboys over Seattle Seahawks. Seahawks scare me since they beat the Giants in New York! Kansas City Chiefs over Miami Dolphins and Atlanta Falcons over Indianapolis Colts also seem like good picks, but you just have to feel that the Colts are Dolphins are due for that first win sooner or later. Thank you in advance for your help.

Answer:

The Raiders and Broncos is a toss up. When those teams face each other, there’s just no knowing what will happen. That game will probably be decided by a field goal and will end up giving you a heart attack.

The Texans over the Browns is a solid choice, I always love picking against the Browns.

Seattle already upset the Giants a booted a ton of teams out of my league so I won’t pick against them. Their defense is stepping up and Marshawn Lynch is getting hot.

I would steer clear of the Chiefs over the Dolphins since I don’t have a whole lot of confidence in the Chiefs.

The Falcons should have no problem beating the Colts. The Colts are in shambles in Peyton Manning out.

Take the Texans or the Falcons!

Survivor Pool Pick – Week 6 (2011) – Steelers or Jets?

Posted by in NFL Survivor Pool Picks on October 16th, 2011 | Comment »

Week 6:

There’s a lot of teams to decide from for my survivor pool this week. I can choose from the Pittsburgh Steelers over the Tennessee Titans, but I was also looking to save them for next week against the Jacksonville Jaguars. I’m also thinking of taking the New York Jets over the struggling Miami Dolphins. I could also go unconventional and save the Steelers and Jets picks later this week by gunning for the Oakland Raiders at home over the Cleveland Browns. What do you think?

Answer:

I say you go Jets this week and Steelers next week. After looking at the Jets schedule, this could be the best time to take them and it’s a safe pick over the Dolphins who are having a lousy season. You can then save your Steelers pick for next week. Taking a gamble on the Raiders is tempting, but they’re too inconsistent to have me take them this early in the season. Good luck to you.

Survivor Pool Pick – Week 5 (2010) – Saints or Chargers?

Posted by in NFL Survivor Pool Picks on September 2nd, 2011 | 3 Comments

Question: I need some help making my week 5 survivor pool pick.

So far this season I’ve used picks on the Giants, Packers, Patriots, and Jets.

I’m thinking of taking the New Orleans Saints (away) over the Arizona Cardinals or the San Diego Chargers (away) over the Oakland Raiders.

I want to get your thoughts on the picks.

Answer:

You’ve already used your picks on some really good teams so it will be hard to make your picks throughout the rest of the year, but the Saints over the Cardinals is an easy pick to make in week 5.

What I do is make my picks for the whole season at the beginning so I can strategically pick which teams I want to take each week and save the stronger teams for later in the season.

Survivor Pool Pick – Week 14 (2009) – Which team should I take?

Posted by in NFL Survivor Pool Picks on December 12th, 2009 | 1 Comment

Question: I’m in a survivor pool and I’ve made it to week 14. I need some help picking a game this week.

Here is a list of teams that I have already taken and cannot use anymore:

Colts
Cowboys
Steelers
Eagles
Saints
Seahawks
Ravens
Bears
Patriots
Bengals
Chargers
Vikings
Falcons

Answer:

You’ve already picked most of the best teams already, so let’s see which games you can pick with teams that aren’t the elite teams in the league. Two matchups that I like are the Buffalo Bills @ Kansas City Chiefs and Washington Redskins @ Oakland Raiders. The Chiefs at 3-10 have been pretty sorry this year. While the Bills aren’t much better at 5-8, I think you stand a good chance by taking the Bills this week even though they are playing on the road. The running tandem of Marshawn Lynch and Fred Jackson should do well against the Chiefs poor run defense.

Survivor Pool Pick – Week 8 (2009) – Cowboys or Bears?

Posted by in NFL Survivor Pool Picks on October 28th, 2009 | 4 Comments

Question: I need a week 8 lock for my survivor pool.

My survivor pool is down to six people already and I’m looking for a lock.

I have taken the following teams
BAL
WAS
NYG
IND
PHI
PIT
NE

I need a solid week 8 pick and I was thinking of the following:

Dallas Cowboys over Seattle Seahawks
Chicago Bears over Cleveland Browns
Arizona Cardinals over Carolina Panthers
San Diego Chargers over Oakland Raiders

Let me know which pick would be best and advise of any pitfalls.

Best answer:

I like the Bears pick over the Browns the best. You also can’t go wrong with the Cowboys over the Seahawks. I’m would stay away from the Cardinals, as they’re just 4-3 and could get hurt by DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart. The AFC West is always a toss up — avoid division games. Take the Bears over the Browns or the Cowboys over the Seahawks this week. You won’t regret it.

Survivor Pool Pick – Week 7 (2008) – Tampa Bay over Seattle?

Posted by in NFL Survivor Pool Picks on October 16th, 2008 | Comment »

Question:

I’m in a survivor pool and it’s down to 6 teams with $400 on the line.

The top games that I’m thinking about are:
1.) PIT – PIT -9.5 @ CIN
2.) TB – SEA @ TB – 10.5
3.) HOU – DET @ HOU – 9.5

Which game is the least likely to end up in an upset?

I don’t like the Pittsburgh Steelers they’re on the road, but they’re coming off of a bye week.

I don’t like Tampa Bay Buccaneers because if they go down early, they could have a hard time coming back. However, Seattle doesn’t have a quarterback.

I like the Texans because Detroit doesn’t have a QB, but Detroit almost pulled off the upset last week.

My weekly picks:

Week 1 – Patriots
Week 2 – Cardinals
Week 3 – Giants
Week 4 – Bills
Week 5 – Cowboys
Week 6 – Colts
Week 7 – Help Me decide

Which game would you pick?

Answer:

Take the New York Jets -3 over Oakland.  The Oakland Raiders are 3-10 at home when they’re facing a team outside the AFC West. This week Oakland is hosting the Jets and New York has covered four of their last five road games. The Jets are also 10-5 on the road when they are favored and facing a non-division opponent. New York is coming off of a 12-point win over the Browns while the Raiders just got crushed by 31 points against the Saints. That loss against the Saints saw Oakland getting outgained by over 200 yards and things could stay ugly for the Raiders.
