Divisional winners:
New England Patriots @ 1/9

Indianapolis Colts @ 8/13
San Diego Chargers @ 1/4
Dallas Cowboys @ 10/11
Minnesota Vikings @ 11/8
New Orleans Saints @ 5/4
Seattle Seahawks @ 8/11

Perm 6s (0.25), 7s (1) and accumulator (5). Total stake 20.
If all 8 win, I'll win just over a grand.

I've been waiting for the Colts to stumble into some misfortune and for the Jaguars to overtake them for years. Maybe this year?

Not sure about the Chargers with the infamous Norm on the headset either.

Well I finally settled on my 2nd team as I cant bring myself to have the Steelers so I will focus on Rashard and Limas.

I have chosen the Jags due to David Garrard being the name of my Primary School Headteacher. And the fact I hate Indy means I really want them to win their division.

Not looking good for Collier, the hospital are refusing to give updates on him. Hope he pulls through, these players need to engage their brains and not go out late at night.

Can someone link me to that picking website that people are on?

I can't be arsed to search through all of the pages and I'm hoping that someone bookmarked it.

AddiscombeEagle 02-09-2008 11:13 PM

Whats a picking website?

Excuse my ignorance.

Company. BBS

Here you go elliot.

Addiscombe, a picking website is where you choose who wins the matches.

elliott 03-09-2008 12:38 AM

Oh, and worst of luck in the fantasy this weekend Paul.

AddiscombeEagle 03-09-2008 10:07 AM

Can I join the picking website or is it invite only?

pauldrulez 03-09-2008 11:10 AM

You can join it.

And Elliot. Same to you :p. I still dont even know whether to go with Brady and Welker since they are both doubts. But they are Belichick doubts and therefore will play :D. Otherwise I am sticking Mendenhall in for Welker as my R/W :D And Favre (spit) in as my QB or Cutler, I have so many QBs I dont know who to use.

saxoneagle 03-09-2008 01:21 PM

I'm looking forward to watching Favre hit the turf regularly on September 14.

Have just also noticed, the wife has booked us in to go diving on Sunday so I'm going to miss a load of the first matches but should be home in plenty of time for the 4pm kick-offs.

Strathclyde Eagle 03-09-2008 01:22 PM

Please tell me you didn't pay on our behalf to set something up on that site, Chester. I'm not impressed with it so far.

Will try and setup a survival picks thing on Yahoo! if I get a moment. If Yahoo! didn't have fantasy leagues there would probably absolutely no reason to use it, but that's a matter for a different thread.

Strathclyde Eagle 03-09-2008 01:23 PM

Not liking the previews of the lines either. That's going to wreck listening to the B.S. Report this season. :(

Do we pick on the lines or the eventual outcome?

Edit: I'm not reading again - Your pool does not use spreads. Sorry about that.

Strathclyde Eagle 03-09-2008 01:30 PM

Survival group is in place:

http://sports.yahoo.com/fantasy

Group #22877
name: CPFC BBS 2008
password: warnock

Probably best to use your BBS username as your pick set name, so we all know who is who.

I'm in Strath. I also didn't like the spreads on the pick-site so am glad they aren't being used.

I think the pick-site was free so that's why we used it :D

Strathclyde Eagle 03-09-2008 02:08 PM

There was also a thing on the front page about $9.95 for a picks pool with the first ten players being free though. What was all that about?

saxoneagle 03-09-2008 02:10 PM

Oh, no idea - didn't see that!

Benzhiyi 03-09-2008 02:47 PM

Hit this page and scroll down to the 'vs Oakland' stat.

Incredible.

Im not that generous :D

pauldrulez 03-09-2008 03:06 PM

I'm also in Straths.

Did anyone just see the NFL 5 minute feature that Kevin Cadle just introduced after Total Access?

It was a 4 minute video on Brady, showing clips of the Superbowls and the other players talking about him during games on the sideline. Great song to go along with it.

Really psyched me up for the Season :D

Even funnier that his YPC is so high against the Giants, 9.6 per carry over 4 games.

Am I looking at something different? He's only played against the Giants once... 192 yards on 21 carries, avg 9.1 yards per carry.
