NFL Survivor Football
Pick one team to win each week. If that team loses you're eliminated. (Read all of the rules, below.) Here's the kicker, you can only use a certain team "once" during the regular season. Example: If I picked the Bills to beat the Saints this week...and they did...I could no longer pick the Bills. Again, that's only during the regular season. You have until 12:00pm every Thursday to make your selection. Those of us who make it to the end of the season will then have to pick one team from the AFC and one team from the NFC to win throughout the Playoffs.
Then you'd have to pick the Super Bowl winner.
Here's a link to see the NFL Week to Week Schedule...
When you pick a team post it like this:
And as the season progresses you'll just change the Week #'s and Teams. 5 Survivor points will issued to those who survive week in and week out, throughout the regular season. 2.5 Survivor points will be awarded those whose playoff teams win out through the playoffs.
If I survive the regular season, from week 4 up to the Playoffs, I will have received a total of 65 Survivor Points.
Then when I get into the playoffs I can pick a team from the AFC and NFC that will advance to the Super Bowl. Using last year (2004) as an EXAMPLE lets say I picked Philadelphia and New England at the beginning of the playoffs. Up to the Super Bowl I would have received 2.5 points per team, per win, leading to the Super Bowl. So, Phili would have received 5 total points and New England would have recieved 5 total points, giving me now a total of 75 points. Now here's the kicker...you recieve 20 Points if one of the teams you picked wins the Super Bowl....but you must pick that team to win at the beginning of the playoffs. So if I picked the New England Patriots to win I would of received an extra 20 points giving me a total of 95 points.
Here's is another twist to the playoff system...if you lose anytime during the regular season, you're immediately eliminated, BUT YOU MAY RETURN TO PLAY THE NEXT WEEK! However, in the Playoffs when your final team has lost, your playoff hopes end as well, and you may not return. You may, however, keep the points you've earned throughout the playoffs.
Once you arrive at the playoffs, your regular season point total CANNOT be lost. Even if you finish the playoff season with no points you will still have the regular season points! The only way to play is to post your picks. You CANNOT keep your picks to yourself. We must have a way to verify your picks. A log will be posted every week (Tuesday or Wednesday) to keep track of how many points everyone has. To help manage this please feel free to send me private messages with your point count, preferably every Tuesday or Wednesday. *I will double check all points, however.*
Who has what it takes to be crowned NFL Survivor Football Champion?!
Goodluck! And....play nice!
