Survivor Week 7 - Can't pick New England

Postby BALCO All-Stars » Thu Oct 18, 2007 9:18 am

I can pick any team besides New England...here are my top choices (I like the home teams), and I'm leaning towards Washington...

Arizona @ Washington - Tim Rattay, enough said
St Louis @ Seattle - St Louis is bad, but Bulger possibly coming back...
Atlanta @ New Orleans - Leftwich is starting for Atlanta, but they still suck...can NO build on their first win last week?
SF @ NYG - NYG should ROLL over SF
NYJ @ Cincinnati - Cincy isn't the same team this year, but it's the Jets that we're talking about here.

Thoughts?

I am going with New Orleans this weekend. I think it is a perfect time to use the Saints, coming off the big win away from home. The Dome should be re-energized, especially going against the hated Falcons.

I'd go with the Giants or the Redskins.

Forgot to add...this league you can pick the same teams over and over, but eventually the guy running the pool starts to weed out the "locks", i.e. no New England this week...

I have already used these teams (2 loss league):

Week 6 - Baltimore
Week 5 - Tennessee
Week 4 - Dallas
Week 3 - New England
Week 2 - Jacksonville
Week 1 - Seattle


I wouldn't touch NO this week. One good game does not make them a viable play, especially in a divisional game. I am trying to decide between Washington and NYG, but am leaning towards Washington.
I am so smart. S-M-R-T

I couldn't have said it better myself. I can bet that a lot of people were knocked out of their survivor pools by picking Chicago last week (home vs Minnesota). They're reasoning for picking the Bears was because they beat the previously undefeated Packers at Lambeau Field, so they should've easily beat Minnesota at home (divisional game). I think I'm going to go with Washington (home vs Arizona).

But any more thoughts are much appreciated...and leave a link so I can help...

I've used the likes of Minny, Jax, Oakland, Dallas, Arizona, and Cleveland so far this year. I haven't used very many good teams yet. I think I'm going with Seattle this week. Twice each I've picked against STL and ATL, once cleveland, and once, Miami. Looks like i'll be going against a very bad STL team again this week.

If you can use the teams as many times as possible, I think you should go with the Giants. They have been on fire lately. No reason to believe SF will be the one to put the fire out. In fact, the Giants may be one team he takes out of the mix soon.

I would take the Giants. In my mind, they are your best bet by a pretty large margin. Any of the other games could be iffy, but even if the Niners have a good game..the Giants will still outscore them.

Thanks for all of the input guys...I'm going with the Redskins...the prospect of that solid Redskins D (3rd in points against, 3rd in yds/game (5th passing, 7th rushing)) going against a 3rd string QB in Tim Rattay is too enticing...plus the Arizona defense gave up 25 points against a Vinny "I just picked up the playbook 4 days before Sunday" Testaverde led offense... ;-D
