My first thought as well.

Pitt technically goes against KISS but more importantly the Browns seem to be playing teams relatively tough so far and this is they type of game where they scare me.

Plus Pitt gets to play Buf in a few weeks, NYG schedule isn't exactly rosy.

Not feeling great about it but go Giants

Re: NFL Survivor Picks

I think I am going to take Chicago this week assuming Cutlaaaaaahhhhhhhh is good to go.

There are as good/better spots to take Pittsburgh especially with Big Ben just coming back. Detroit have been a lot more competitive this year and will take NYG if I am still in against Jax.

Bears don't have any good games left after this one. Also I don't see that many of my pool going with them.

Re: NFL Survivor Picks

What's the etiquette on tipping the ones that run the pool 5%, 10%, no obligation at all?

disclaimer: I don't plan on winning my pool! I am on Chicago this week so stay away.

The pool I am in has 1086 entries for $100 each - The person that runs the pool takes 5% off the top ($5430) so there is no need for tipping. I have cashed the last two years and there is always a reminder in the final email that "gratuities are appreciated" - No way! He takes his tips upfront.

The 2 guys that run my pool are constantly reminding us of how much work it was to process all of the payments, then their friends chime in with their "if I win I will tip 20-25% because I know how much work it takes to run one of these"

Re: NFL Survivor Picks

Straightforward week if you have Baltimore or New Orleans available. Poor planning on your part if you don't have one of those 2 teams available IMO.

Ravens not close. I am shocked the Saints line is .5 points higher - lets see them play well in more than 1 out of 5 games. The Browns have been frisky in every game and are a couple unfortunate pick 6's away from being .500.
Buff vs. Balt is arguably 32 @ 1.

Re: NFL Survivor Picks

^ Good points on the Browns being competitive in games they have played so far.

That being said, this will be the 2nd consecutive road game for them and I believe Josh Cribbs and Mohamed Massaquoi both left the Sunday game with concussions. Not sure if they will play this coming Sunday and even if they do, whether they are at their 100%.

Re: NFL Survivor Picks

In virtually every large pool, more people will have baltimore left. This should play a role in who you pick...

True but NO also still has home games left against Seattle, Rams and Tampa and will be by far the best option in week 14 against the Rams. IMO that trumps separation here.

I don't have Baltimore but I do have NO. I'm thinking of Denver, they played great against the Jets.

Looking at the Chiefs as well. Think Del Rio has lost this Jags team.

Re: NFL Survivor Picks

I'd like to go with KC this week but everyone else will be, plus I'm tired of sweating Buffalo. Fitzpatrick is actually semi-decent...maybe DAL at least they are at home or the Jets but who knows.

Re: NFL Survivor Picks

I'm going to reluctantly sweat a Bills road game for the 4th time. Would've taken Dallas with Romo but meh. Don't like the Jets.
