    Up to 63 participants.
    Payouts will look something like top 9. If we can get up to 70 by sunday, I'll bump it up to top 10.

    Not to mention Bell and Martavis Bryant were suspended, and the Steelers secondary looked AWFUL in the preseason. How many plays did they leave Gronk WIDE open ?

    Strangely enough that game should have been far closer. NE got a little lucky, and I picked them. I found the 'group picks' page and I think 7 people had the Pats. Sadly I can't cheer for the Bears but that game will be far closer than most anticipate I fear.

    Sorry, I was doing way too many football BIFs and have cut it down to only one. Stupid life/work things getting in the way of football and beer.

    I know what you mean, I have at least doubled my number of wins from last year. By the way, swag can be from your favorite or local team, not necessarily the winning team, at least that is what I saw in last year's posts.

    Last year, we submitted our favorite NFL team to Damien. People sending boxes were supposed to send the winners swag for their favorite team. For example, I had to go find some Buccaneers gear for the person I shipped to because it was their favorite team. In my opinion, it is pointless to send someone else gear from your favorite team because they will not use it. If I win and someone sends me Cowboys merchandise, I will just throw it away. Waste of their money, waste of my time.

    Agreed. I was one of the winners last year and got some really cool bears swag.

    Wow. It's pretty obvious that after picking the Cowboys, and watching Eli hand them the win in a game where the Cowboys were trying every way they could to lose, I'm clearly destined to win this whole thing!

    Or my week 2 pick crashes and burns worse than Jameis Winson.

    Somehow, I managed to stay in the game for at least one week. Congrats to all who made it through week 1.

    Update:
    So looks like we have 66 total entries, which is about 10 more than we had last year. 7 eliminated in week 1.
    I know I said I would make the payouts for the top 9, but, typically I like to payout 15%. 15% of 66 is 9.9, So I'm going to payout to the top 10.

    Proposal - feel free to shoot it down....

    The shipping breakdown shows that if you finish in the Top 10, you don't have to ship. How would everyone feel about those in the top 10 having to ship to another top 10 finisher? More boxes for everyone!

    Quick question - is there a selection of which boxes go where or is it randomized?

    Also, this survival pool might be the only thing able to keep me watching my Redskins since I may continue to just pick against them all season. 0-16, here we come.

    Sorry man, I'm going to leave it that winners don't have to ship.
    Its not going to be randomized. My main goal is to assign each winner a variety of boxes from different states, and avoid sending them a box from their own state.
    I have our list broken down by states. So far, there seems to be a good number of PA, FL, and Il entries. So each top 8 team will get at least 1 box from each of those states. As long as that person isn't from one of those states.

    I was on Minnesota all week and chickened out and switched to Miami last minute. Worked out but got quite the scare...might play it a little safer this week!

    How long did you need to "survive" last year to be in the money/win it all?

    I think it was week 9 to be in the money. Week 11 for top 4, and 12 for winner.

    That's what i was thinking too. But I guess picks are locked after the 1:00 games?

    It does show some people who made picks at 4pm so it may be locked.
