    ^I think the risk is worth the reward here. If I'm right I'm done with worrying about who to go with down the road, because the better teams are waiting for me to pick them. It's easy to pick the Colts, but who do you go with once you've used them up.... See my strategy here? If I'm out week-1 so be it, but if I use up a crummy team, I'm sitting pretty.

    Ive seen more bad teams win early in the year than good teams winning late. If I'm missing something, someone point it out, but I feel good about this plan.

    Your strategy is good, but to me there are just alot safer picks still using the bad teams.

    ^Care to elaborate? I identified the Lions, Bucs, Jags, Raiders, Chiefs, Seahawks, Panthers, Rams, and Bills as all teams you wouldn't dare pick unless forced to. Browns included. However with the Browns, they face one of those weak teams listed. Also of the teams mentioned, I only see the Browns as week-1 winners in the bunch. We expect the Chargers to beat the Chiefs, Titans to beat the Raiders, Dolphins to beat the Bills, Bears beat the Lions, Cards to beat the Rams, and then there's good teams vs good teams. The Seahawks game could go either way, as could the Browns. Except with the Browns you have Mangini who is opening vs the Bucs who annually suck opening day. Mangini (not a genius) will be able to score on them, as has been the case during his coaching career.

    I think its a calculated risk worth going for. We'll see.

    Remember... there are 32 teams to choose from over 17 weeks. The Browns should never be one of them.

    The risk is not worth the reward. Trust me.

    Normally I'd agree wholeheartedly, but I like their chances vs the Bucs. The only concern is their right side of their O-Line, but the Bucs suck over in that area too. So it's okay.

    Are the point spreads calculated as well? If so, it will be almost impossible to last more than 4 weeks.

    Or is it just a straight up win by your picked team keeps you alive (as it should be)?

    It's just the win, not the spread.

    I was about to go into further detail about why I disagree with JC's strategy, but then I realized that the more I explained, the more I'd hurt my own odds in the pool. Therefore, I'm shutting up and enjoying the risk-takers, and watching them drop like flies.
