NFL Survivor Pool Picks and Advice: Week 7
by Mett Severance - 10/19/2011
I don’t know if the lockout had anything to do with this – or with the fact that there have been 19 instances already where a team has rallied from at least a 10-point deficit to win this year – but it seems like every week is about 95 percent chalk in the NFL. Maybe a few teams aren’t covering the spread, but the clubs that are supposed to win do.

It’s Week 7 of the NFL season, so if you are still alive in your survivor pool then congratulations are in order. Chances are pretty good, though, that if you were alive last week then you are still alive this week — the most likely picks last week all turned out about as expected. That’s a very good kind of week for survivor pool players.

OK, dear readers, I owe you both an apology and an explanation. First, the apology: Sorry for choosing the New York Giants last week as my top choice for your survivor pools. Thanks to an Eli Manning interception that was returned for a 94-yard touchdown as New York was driving for the winning score, the Seattle Seahawks did what they never do: Win on the East Coast.

The field is getting smaller and smaller each week in your survivor pool Hopefully you are still among the living. The team that likely did the most damage last week was the Giants in their pathetic loss at home as 10-point favorites against the lowly Seahawks. Other than that there weren’t too many problems unless you have too much respect for the Eagles or the Cardinals or too little respect for the Packers.

In Week 4, I would only consider there were two medium-level upsets: The Bengals winning at home over the Bills and the 49ers going to Philly and sending the “Dream Team” to its third straight loss. For what it’s worth, I warned you to stay away from both Buffalo and Philadelphia last week. The Bills were very much due for a huge letdown game after an emotional home win over New England the week before.

If you were still alive in your survivor pool heading into last week, then chances are pretty good that you still are. It wasn’t the most challenging or surprising week we have seen this year. Unless you were really gambling, the Bills and the Eagles were the only two teams that could have caused some issues by losing last week, and there were certainly better games to play than either of those two.

Yet another pretty chalk week in the NFL in Week 3, so here’s guessing your survivor pool is still pretty jammed full of competition. There are two games I warned you to stay far, far away from last week and both turned out to be upsets. They would be New England at Buffalo and the New York Giants at Philadelphia.

Let’s take the a look at the promising spots and the traps that Week 4 of the season has to offer survivor pool players. Remember, on Thursday our free NFL survivor pool picks will be posted for you.

Certainly it appears that offenses are ahead of defenses as there have been the most touchdowns scored through two weeks in NFL history, and quarterbacks are putting up a record amount of 300-yard games – not to mention Tom Brady and Cam Newton throwing for at least 400 yards in each game so far. Newton is the first player ever to start with back-to-back 400-yard games, and Brady is on pace for nearly 7,500 yards.

The first week of the season was a tough one for people in survivor pools, but the second week was far more straight forward and easier to survive. Hopefully you are still going strong and ready to make more successful NFL survivor pool picks this week. Here’s a look at the highs and lows of the card this week from a survivor pool perspective along with some advice and strategy for Week 3:

Well, so far so good. So what did we learn from Week 1 in the NFL? Apparently Indianapolis has morphed into the Bengals (although Cincy did win) without Peyton Manning. I did say that Colts-Texans game was a potential huge trap, but I apparently didn’t realize that Manning also plays defense and special teams. Indy looks like the worst team in football after one week.

We’re only one week into the NFL season and already there are likely many people who are looking for a Survivor Pool that will let them start over again because they are already on the sidelines. People who trusted seemingly logical squads like the Falcons or Chiefs are out of luck. Reasonable gambles like the Giants, Titans, Bucs and Rams faltered. People who swung for the fences with the Browns (like, sadly, I did in one pool I am in) or Steelers weren’t rewarded for their daring. Even teams like the Chargers, Cardinals, and Jets made winning much harder than it needed to be.

Hello again readers here at Doc’s, it’s that time of year that we all love the most: football season. And of course that means I’m back to deliver my weekly Survivor Pool picks advice column for Week 1 of the NFL 2011-12 NFL season.

It’s the beginning of the NFL season. That means that it’s time for Survivor Pools, and that’s a very good thing. Whether you call them Survivor Pools, Suicide Pools, or Eliminator Pools they are such a simple but deceptively challenging thing. It shouldn’t be hard to pick a single team every week that is going to win, but it can be incredibly difficult, and there are countless ways for things to go really badly. The most crushing part of the pools is that you only get one mistake, so things can end tragically early for you.

Hard to believe another NFL regular season and Survivor Pool season is already at its end, so this will be my final advice column of the season. Hopefully you have either cashed in by now or will by Sunday night. Of course I will be back with this Survivor Pool Picks column next season – assuming of course there is a 2011 NFL season (i.e. labor issues).

If there was one result in the NFL last week that might have jumped up and bitten either you or your Survivor Pool competitors, it had to be the Detroit Lions going to Tampa Bay and upsetting the Bucs, 23-20, in overtime. It was Detroit’s first road win since Week 8 of the 2007 season, snapping its NFL-record 26-game road losing streak. The Lions also won back-to-back games for the first time since that 2007 season. I’m telling you, they are going to be good next year.

It was a pretty chalky Week 14 in the NFL, so there were probably not a lot of eliminations in your Survivor Pool. That is unless you fell into the trap that is the New York Jets at home against the Miami Dolphins or if you took Green Bay at Detroit in a game the Packers essentially lost the minute Aaron Rodgers left with a concussion.

We are at the final quarter-pole of the NFL’s regular season, so if you are still alive in your Survivor Pool – and why would you be reading this if you aren’t? – then you can no doubt almost smell that money by now. By this point in the year you can usually tell which teams have quit and will begin looking toward next season.

Last week was fairly chalk in terms of upsets in the NFL, so hopefully your Survivor Pool in ongoing. Things really start to get interesting after Thanksgiving because some teams pack it in and start to play the young kids – but sometimes those kids can spring an upset because they, unlike the veterans on a horrible team like a Carolina, still want to impress the coaching staff, etc.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks and Advice: Week 12
by Matt Severance - 11/23/2010
We’re here a little early this week for the Survivor Pool picks column since there’s a football feast arriving on Turkey Day, although thank God the NFL added that third Thanksgiving game a few weeks ago because otherwise we would have subjected to just the lousy Lions and Cowboys hosting the early games – albeit against Super Bowl contenders in Patriots and Saints, respectively. The night game looks like another mismatch as the Jets host the sinking Bengals.
