No, no, no.

 

Usually the pool opens Monday Night. I usually post something during the game. Then the pool closes sometime after 6 on Thursday.

 

SO you have 2 and a half days or almost 72 hours.

So there's no 1 hour grace period or 1 post rule where the first person to post after you close gets in still?

 

Fire2box told me there was :-P

Whats the point of picking the same teams with a majority? Either you'll all get ejected in one upset, you'll get to the point where you can't go against the jags due to divisional teams playing 2 games per season, or a bye week or the jags.

 

Jumping off a cliff with a heard is still jumping off a cliff.

 

 

I picked the Bengals since I couldn't see myself using them further in the season. The colts are a good if not great team. Bengals, not so much.

 

So why not save the better teams for later on in the season then using them in the first 7 weeks when they play against horrible teams?

Teams can get better or worse at any point of the season. There's no point in saving better teams for later because for all we know Peyton might blow his knee next week and the Broncos could be 5-11 by the time the season ends.

Sooooooo glad I took my BYE this week. So many questionable games. The only one I considered was Baltimore (since I've already played Denver and Indy), and I would have been out. Would have been absolutely insane if the Jags had won. Rough week!

Anothers Browns win equals another chunk out... face it, we might not be as bad as everyone likes to think we are.  That title has officially been taken by the Jags... hell, at this point, maybe even the Giants or Steelers.  (Yes, I know the last two should be good, but they're both playing God-awful)

5 INT's by Flacco didn't help your cause.

Injuries do happen, but the greatest teams don't relie on just one person other then starting QB. But the QB's are insanely protected by the official rules to the point that rarely happen. Either they throw it away or protect the ball and themselves and pretty much sit down before getting tackled.

 

 

There's like 3 notable people out on the 49ers roster, but their still winning. "But Fire2box, they only won half their games." yeah, teams have slumps.

The sad part is that the Giants are only two games out from the division lead.  If Cowboys lose next week (they play Denver - highly possible) and if the Giants win (play Eagles), they'll be right in the thick of things.  And if the Eagles win, hell, they'll have tied for the division lead.  Man, and to think, just a few years ago, the NFC East was considered the toughest division in football while the NFC West was the joke.  That's what I love about the NFL.

How are you surprised by it? The worst teams are given the best draft picks and teams have a salary cap to stay under, So they can't pull a New York Yankee move and buy a handful of the best players.

I just noticed you actually have me listed as picking the Kansas City Chiefs, but Colts was my week 4 pick.

I never said I was surprised by it.  And yes, I understand this completely.  But that doesn't always work.  Which is why terrible teams like Buffalo, Jacksonville and Cleveland have been terrible for so long.  Just because you have a high draft pick doesn't mean anything.  You also have to choose correctly, develop the players properly, etc., etc.  Anyway, that wasn't the point I was making anyway.
