    It's pretty simple: you pick one NFL team to win every week. If they lose, then you are out. If you forget to pick, then you are out. No money, just pride!

    The catch? You can only pick a team once in a season. For example, if you pick the Colts to beat Oakland in week 1, you cannot pick them again all year. Thus sometimes you have to decide among several seemingly sure things as to which one you want to "spend" that week

    I just joined. Sounds interesting. Never done one of these before.

    Does it extend into the playoffs if there is a tie at the end of the season?

    I picked to extend into the playoffs if needed.

    I've never seen them last that long though.

    Hmmm is this thing going on for a lot of time? Not here, in general I'm asking. I have seen that game in at least 3-4 forums. In one of them, 80% of the guys have gone with the Colts beating the Raiders Week 1.

    Let me know if there's interest in a regular "pick em" league at Yahoo. You pick the winners of all games every week.

    I think that there are two options:

    1) picking winners vs. the point spread and then getting a point for every game you picked correctly,
    2) picking winners straight up, but assigning confidence points to each game. For example, if there are 16 games there would be a 16 point game, a 15 point game, a 14 point game, etc. down to a 1 pt. game. You put more points on what you think are sure things, and you get those points when you picked that game correctly.

    I'd be down for an old school point spread league. That way we also have something to do all season. The survival league will be fun, but some people will inevitably be eliminated relatively quickly, so it would be nice if we also had a league that we knew would last the entire season.

    Jets-Atl screwed me over

    veered from the tried and true strategy of picking Jacksonville's opponent every week, which likely would have worked all the way until they played a division opponent for the second time and you'd be required to pick someone else.

    last two standing:

    Heisenberg
    Millter_Time04


    and yikes it was a brutal week in the point spread pick em
