  • Week 3 - NFL Survivor Pool Conversation

    SUNDAY-FUNDAY-DONEDAY...

    More teams with leads at halftime, more teams barley winning or losing the games. ATL allllllllmost created the bomb of the day as they looked like Volo after his 6th martini in the first half, but came roaring back to come within a caught pass of beating LAR. KC/LAC...Coinflip...NE/PITT...Coinflip...NYG/CAR...Coinflip...NYJ/CLEV...Coinflip...BALT/MIA...Coinflip...DAL/CINN...Coinflip...ARI/LAS...Coinflip...INDY/JAX...NOT a Coinflip! How soon into the season can your fire a coach?!

    Yours truly made the square move of the weekend and thought DAL had to suck off game one vs TB, and no way Cooper Rush could win. Well...They have a defense, and it created havoc for Cool Joe Burrow. They had a shot to go to OT, but 3 and out on the last drive won't get that done. CLEV snatches defeat out of the jaws of victory, and if you think Brownie the Elf will be on that field next game, I have a bag of Dogecoin to sell you. They took pools down in the 12% range...CINN took down another 10% or so.

    Guess what?! It only gets TOUGHER this week! There's only 3-games with a 6.5/7-point spread. Gulp. One is a division game (MINN/DET), One has QB that can barely breath (LAC/JAX), One has one of the best QB's vs a team that might not beat Appalachian St. (KC/INDY). Gonna have to dig into the stats and injury reports to find some winners this week.

    QUICK LOOK...

    [email protected]...INDY's season is on the line and in comes KC to push the Dolts to 0-3. Over-confidence and Mahomes missing the plane are the only things that let KC lose this one.

    [email protected]...Well, what to say...The Kitties are believing in themselves and lost a close one to a good PHILLY team and dominated and average Commando's team. Yeah, I know it's Commanders, but they should have gone with Commandos! MINN looked good vs GB, but back to earth vs PHILLY. MINN 6.6/7-point favorites. First time for the Kitties out of their own sandbox in a noisy place in the greenhouse.

    [email protected]...A pumped up JAX team rolls into LA to see if they can make Herbert wince by just blowing on him. I'm not going anywhere near it. He's one hit from going into the fetal position even though they'll shoot him up with everything in the medicine cabinet. Check the injury report to hear all the lying going on about his condition. Pederson has JAX believing they've turned a page.

    [email protected]...If the coaches don't get in the way and screw up the clock management like the JETS game, they have a shot to bounce back vs a beat up PITT team. Hard to back a team with Jacoby Brissett...Plus it's a division game. Weird things happen.

    [email protected]...2nd week in-a-row for CINN on the road and being 0-2 makes this a must-win already. NYJ not the better team on paper, but who's practice will be way more energized this week?! That CINN O-Line is gonna put Joey in the morgue if they aren't careful. Beware the disrespected home dog vs a team that was in the SB.

    [email protected]...Short week...Division game...A MIA team starting to live up to the hype. Tough spot for BUFF, but they can prove how good they are if they can grab a W.

    [email protected]...For the mappers out there, this one probably wasn't one you had before Week 1. KC seems like as close a thing to a lock we've seen all year. They'll be the big pick, and it's up to you if you want to stay away in case the unthinkable happens. If you have multiple picks left, tough to stay off them.

    [email protected]...Not sure what to say without knowing if Herbert can brush his teeth without doubling over in pain. Chase Daniels is the back up. He's good...At making money! 14th year as a backup collecting checks. I'm not going on it. Too many unknows for this cowboy...Damn, I brought it up to myself!

    [email protected]...Hurts is looking good this year. He's developing a passing game and with those legs, he's a danger. This could be a rule-breaking game. Road, and division game. Sometimes you have to say WFT! I mean WTF!

    OK, get to your homework, and throw your ideas and teams you like/don't like out on the thread so we can come up with some winners!

    Get some placeholders in!

    GOOD LUCK!! The way this season is going we NEED IT!

      (Adams pool)

      I will take brisset over any of the stillers qb.Cleveland has a running game and can throw a little,pitt can’t do neither.

      .I also like Dallas at giants.

      I think kc will be a huge number one pick but Indy should play like season is online so will see.

      also I’d sell a pick if anyone wants to pick up the bill on it for 4k🥸

      good luck all

        True but if Chubb just falls down after getting the first down instead of scoring ,game is over bc jets had no timeouts.

        Yeah I’d think kc would win to but then again rams up 28-3 at home against atl and I hadda sweat it out lol

        I was looking at saints at Carolina as well,saints d pretty good,jameison such a wildcard though,I don’t think Carolina has much.

        Im really trending towards cle ,I just think short week ,at home,two good rbs….can I take the under in this game lol.

        I think this week is ultra tough

        I'd call the CLEV grounds crew and see if they took the effing Elf off the field! It's cursed I tell ya!!!

        LAR isn't motivated... Too busy staring at their rings. KC VERRRRY motivated to get home field. They've got the tools.

        A fluke that Jets won, but they hung around before the madness started. Two TDs in two minutes. Yikes!

      Beware Bills Their secondary is beat up pretty bad as of now. I really like that Eagles pick. Bengals too. They have lost 2 games by a field goal. This really is a must win. And a revenge game too since they were upset last year in the Meadowlands.

        Seattle can win right? I mean that’s going deep into the darkness for a pick but Atlanta isn’t nothing to write home about,very sub par defense,they can move the ball on offense but Seattle at home with the 12th man hmm I could see it

          Have you watched the seabirds offense? 1st half v denver is their season total, as special teams put them on the board sunday. Atlanta can score, seattle can't.

          ATL is feisty with the last second loss to NO and he almost win vs LAR. SEA had many self-inflicted wounds in SF game, who has a very good D, and Jimmy G helped them out. ATL knows they are on the doorstep of getting a win, and will play SEA tough. I think SEA will 'try' and open it up more, but seems like it will be a tough spot to take SEA. Usually when I'm down on them, they win!

        SURVIVORGRID.COM....

        OKAY...A few bigger faves with LAC and KC getting the Lion's share....Sorry Lion's, you need 1% to get listed! NYG playing DAL with both getting some action along with CLEV and PITT facing off and getting pickers taking each side... Those games will knock out at least 2-4% of pools.

        LAC better not sleep on JAX. If Herbert somehow can take some hits and not hit the stretcher with the ribs, they are the better team, but it will be interesting. The extra rest won't hurt.

        KC losing would be the biggest upset in mannnnnny years. Hard to see it happening, but when you least expect it, the bomb can go off.

          Liking PHILLY as one of my two picks...Trying to find a different team than KC as I'd rather not be on such a big favorite, but love their comparable stats to INDY's on PFF.

          Don't want to be on LAC, CINN, MINN, BUFF, CHI, LAR, NO, NYG, DAL......Yeah, I know, who's left! LOL!!! CLEV interests me some...PITT D is actually decent, and good against the run. Their offense is the issue.

          Just want to get to week 4 and was going KC but with TB coming up and Colts looking like they packed it in my gut tells me do not go down with a visitor,that leaves me with top pick LAC and unless someone can sway me it will be a team rested, QB or backup.GL

            Volo - I will leave you with this stat. Trevor Lawrence has lost his first 9 road games.......the only other QB to do the same is Peyton Manning.......Peyton's 10th road game and first road win was against...........The San Diego Chargers.

            Also.......With Tennessee being 0-2, this game is not really a must win for Indy. Indy sits tied for 2nd in their Division with Houston, and the Jacksonville Jaguars!!! are in 1st place. While Indy would love a win here, it is not the end all for them to start 0-2-1 considering Tenn is 0-2.

            Volo, if you trust in Chase Daniels to win the game, then go for it. I can't trust that Herbert will be able to play his best game (if he even plays) not knowing how he's going to feel as he won't get hit until sunday. On pro football focus the charger defense really doesn't grade out that well except for pass rush. Jacksonville isn't afraid of these guys.

            Do you like Philly at all? It's a road division game but I'm going to be on them.

        • #9
          The best five prospects this week are Buffalo, KC, LA Chargers, Minnesota and Philadelphia. Buffalo, Minnesota and Philadelphia break the "unofficial rule" of not playing division games. Of those three, I prefer the Eagles. Probably, the safest play (about 72%) is the Chargers. It is your choice.

            I'm on Philly. I don't trust the chargers right now with Herbert being a giant question mark. Chase Daniels has been around forever but is he enough?

            Pederson has Jax believing.

            Philadelphia is a very good choice, in my opinion.

            BUFF is very banged up... That should be a good game.

        • #10
          Since I have only one pick my gut tells me LAC and all I read from everyone I believe could happen and my play is assuming Herbert can not play.
          If I had a second pick I would take Bengals and in some other pools may use them.I know Rick likes Eagles and will root for them but that game looks too easy.GL and hope we all move on.

            I lost a team the last two weeks, so I know NOTHING is easy! The 75% that are out of pools will confirm that! 😁

        • #11
          I talked myself into Cinny and now can root against KC and LAC

            At work and no time for a bigger write up before Adam's pool deadline, but going on PHILLY & KC right now. Might switch off KC in other pools.

            Love what I've seen out of Hurts so far and Wash is average as of now. His passing has taken a leap forward and mobile.

            I talked myself off CLEV with two DE's out and Garrett banged up. I think that gives Trubisky a chance to have time in the pocket to throw on a mediocre CLEV secondary. CLEV run game is very good but PITT run D grades out well in PFF stats.

            The way I roll, CLEV will win, and KC will blow it! 😆

              Not saying CLEV won't win or not run on PITT, just think PITT O has a chance to do some damage. CLEV will probably win by 20! 🤯
