Survivor Pool Pick – Week 16 (2011) – Steelers, Ravens, Texans, or Patriots?

Posted by in NFL Survivor Pool Picks on December 19th, 2011 | Comment »

Question: What team should I take in week 16 of my survivor pool?

I have 4 picks that I’m looking at:

1.) BAL over CLE
2.) PIT over STL
3.) HOU over IND
4.) NE over MIA

Which pick do you think is a lock?

Best answer:

I would avoid the Ravens and Texans as they look bad this past week. I would take Steelers over the Rams. With the Steelers at home, this game should be a lock.

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

Posted by in NFL Survivor Pool Picks on November 4th, 2011 | 2 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.


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 1 (2011) – Cardinals or Texans?

Posted by in NFL Survivor Pool Picks on September 9th, 2011 | Comment »


I’m starting off my survivor pool. With Peyton Manning out, everyone and their mother are taking the Houston Texans at home over the Indianapolis Colts. I have high expectations for the Texans this year and may want to save that pick for later in the year. The other game I was thinking of taking is the Arizona Cardinals over the Carolina Panthers. Last year the Panthers were the worst team in the league and I don’t expect a whole lot from Cam Newton in his rookie debut. His preseason has been pretty lackluster. Should I go with the Cardinals and Texans this week?


The safer pick is definitely the Texans who should roll over the Colts who don’t have a QB now that Manning is out. However, I can understand trying to safe the Texans for later in the year. With that said, there could never be a better opportunity to take the Cardinals this year than this week. It’ll be easy to advance to week 2 and keep all of your strong teams for later weeks. Good luck this week.

Survivor Pool Pick – Week 14 (2008) – Colts or Patriots?

Posted by in NFL Survivor Pool Picks on December 2nd, 2008 | Comment »

Question: Who should I take in my survivor pool in week 14?

I need your help selecting a game from the list below so I can advance to the next round:

Philadelphia Eagles @ New York Giants – Giants
Houston Texans @ Green Bay Packers – Green Bay
Cincinnati Bengals @ Indianapolis Colts – Indianapolis
Kansas City Chiefs @ Denver Broncos – Broncos
New England Patriots @ Seattle Seahawks – Patriots


I don’t like the division games of Eagles @ Giants and Chiefs @ Broncos so take them off your list. Cincinnati only has 1 win this season, so they should get rocked by the Colts. I really like that pick. You also can’t go wrong with the Patriots over the Seahawks. You have some nice teams to pick from late in your survivor pool season. You must have done a solid job so far. Good luck.

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

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


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?


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.
