DVDTalk 2008 NFL Playoff Survivor Pool

DVDTalk 2008 NFL Playoff Survivor Pool

2007 Survivor Pool (won by Calculon):here
2006 Survivor Pool (won by Drexl):here
2005 Survivor Pool (won by dick grayson):here
2004 Survivor Pool (won by Daryl): here
2003 Survivor Pool (won by rabbit77): here

The rules are simple:
  • As we head into a weekend of playoff football, you pick one team.
  • If that team wins, you survive to the next weekend.
  • If that team loses, you're out.
  • Once you've picked a particular team, you cannot pick that team again in later weeks.
  • For tie breaker purposes, you must also provide the total # of points that will be scored in the game you've selected. (For example, if your first round pick is Arizona, you must also provide your guess for the total # of points in the Cardinals' game against Atlanta.)
Picks must be posted to this thread before kickoff of the first game of the weekend. Each week's picks and results will be summarized at the top of the thread. In the event that we have multiple winners *or* everybody gets eliminated during the same weekend, the winner will be the person who guesses closest to the total # of points scored in their game. If no point guess is included with your pick, you will be assigned a guess of ZERO.

Additional Info:
  • Tie breakers (in the form of total # of points) will be used to determine the final order of finish where necesssary.
  • In case of a tiebreaker tie, the player who submits their pick first will have the edge.
  • If both of the teams who make it to the Super Bowl have already been picked by a particular player, that player will be eliminated due them being "shut out" of the Super Bowl. That player's order of finish will be ahead of all of those eliminated during the Conference Finals, but behind those eliminated during the Super Bowl.
  • A player may change their picks at any time prior to kickoff of the first game, but may only do so by posting a new message to this thread. Posts that contain an "Edited by" timestamp will be ignored.

Because of the way this year's picks played out, and the HUGE number of early round upsets, the result of the Super Bowl does not matter. Our pool will be decided during the two Conference Championship games.

Picks are shown in the order in which they were received. If a player revises his/her pick, they move to the bottom of the list of active players. In the unlikely event of a tie between players, where two or more players eliminated in the same round missed their total point guess by exactly the same difference, pick order will break the tie with earlier picks winning over later picks.

The first round looks tough... there is nobody favored by more than a few points.

Please remember to submit your first round selection *and* guess for point total in that game. Picks with no point total will be assigned a value of ZERO for tiebreaker purposes. Not a big deal in round one, sure, but it can make a significant difference in later rounds.

Picks that have "Edited by..." stamps on them will be ignored. If you decide to change your pick please do so by adding a new post to the thread.


The pool is now officially OPEN. Good luck all!

PS - I need to cap this year's pool at 50 entrants, but I will reserve spots for our past champions and for those who have played all 5 years. In case any of those reserved spots go unclaimed, I will waitlist people (if necessary) after the non-reserved spots are taken. I expect 40-45 spots will be more than sufficient for the rest of us.

I'll be offline for several hours. Go ahead and submit your picks, I'll catch the table up later.

Those can be combined, since that is my old username.

Also, I purposefully picked against my team in each of the last three years, and was happily wrong every time, so I like to think of myself as having gone 3-0 instead of 0-3.

As for this year...
