    If you both wanted to keep it going, these would be your remaining choices.

    I picked Baltimore last week, so I only have JETS. If he wants to pick Philly or Cincy, then we can do that. Would it be possible to start fresh?
    I don't mind giving up my crown. 16-1 is a good season.

    If you choose to keep it going, I suggest starting the playoffs fresh. But it would be 1 loss and out. There would actually be a fair bit of strategy included in doing that because of the eliminations of teams. The problem is that there ARE scenarios where based upon your early picks you could actually block yourself out of having a pick available in the later games like the divisional playoffs or superbowl. We could try it and see what happened, though.

    Re: 2009 Survivor Pool

    I'm fine with whatever you decide. The strategy is to pick teams early that you don't think will win the super bowl, but advance.
    So if you think the Saints will win the SB, you don't pick them in Div. or Conf. Ch. It could be interesting.

    Re: 2009 Survivor Pool

    After reading everybody’s thoughts on how to handle this situation in the NFL Survivor Pool Contest, here are my suggestions:

    First, I want to thank DocMarvin362 (Matt) for his time and effort in staging this contest, It was a very enjoyable contest.

    1) Whoever makes it through the regular season with less than 2 losses, is a winner in my book, and therefore both Sportdawg and myself should be co-champions this year in the NFL Survivor Pool.

    2) If we use a tiebreaker, I like the idea of continuing in the playoffs better than using “the one with the longest no-loss streak”.

    3) As Sportdawg and TechDawgFan point out, the strategy in the playoffs would be quite a bit different than in the regular season and would make a very interesting contest by itself. That is one of the reasons that I think we should declare co-champions rather than continuing the contest.

    4) If Matt is willing to, and it is not too late, why don’t we setup a NFL Playoffs Pool Contest and open it up to everyone. If more than one person makes it to the end and picks the Superbowl winner, then they should have to pick the points also as a tiebreaker. If we decide to continue the regular season into the playoffs, then whoever gets the furthest, wins the regular season.

    Re: 2009 Survivor Pool

    Sounds like a plan..... I'll look at setting up the contest again for the playoffs when I get home tonight. Might be worth a shot just to see how easy it flows.

    So whether it's co-Champs or 1 or 2, great job guys. 3rd place is better anyways.

    Re: 2009 Survivor Pool

    If Sportdawg wants to continue into the playoffs, then we both should start over with all of the eligible teams.

    Are you going to try to set it up for everyone to participate?

    I've played that with my wife twice and she won both times. We haven't officially had a rematch, but we get a good bit of practice in.
