Did I mention that I lie sometimes??? :ph34r:

Did I mention that I never hold grudges or try to get even or seek revenge?

Oh I thought I did....my bad.   :).       Just kidding.

Five survivors have yet to make their Week 5 selection... for 2 it'd be Strike 2 sayonara.

Ticktock, gentlemen...

Thanks for the reminder. My "anyone against the Dolphins" strategy has worked in spades so far, but hopefully my updated "anyone against the Jets during bye weeks" plan holds as well. Like my chances this week with Philly.

Eff that.  A HUGE Browns win will stave off elimination for me.  I cannot wait for Monday night.

I didn't pick them fortunately- but I went against one of my major mantras- Never underestimate the ability of the Bengals to Bungle. Two terrible teams, and I was thinking a Bengal win at home- lower draft position. Kyler Murray looks like a bug out there that's going to get squashed sooner or later. The Queen City Kitties just may give the tanking Dolphins a run for the #1 overall draft pick after all.  Funny thing is they're not even trying to tank. 

When it went to OT, I was hoping for a tie in the Ratbird- Squealer game, an optimal outcome from a Browns perspective. Guess you can't have everything. BTW, I picked the Beagles to ground the Jets, so safely though another week...

Three more departed Week 5: Baker a Beer, Berean and Woody thanks to KC, CLE and KC again...

While five joined the One-strike Club: Barry, DieHard, Kamac, London and Yours Truly as 3 took the KC lock over Indy and the other one plus me hitched our dream to CHI.

And 6 of us are UNDEFEATED!   But in Survival is just one pick from d'oh and two from better luck next year.   And now the picking starts to get a little bit harder.   :o

Going full hog on my "anyone against Miami plan" this week in picking the Redskins. I think despite all the chaos interim coaches are hungry to win and well, the Dolphins are still historically bad.

I decided to note which teams I would pick at the moment for every week till 16th, based on what have we seen so far. I hope it helps me to make decisions when choosing between two teams looking forward for future weeks.

Having said that, and after taking some time for this... Murphy's law will apply and most likely I'm getting eliminated soon, lol.

Good to think ahead Nero. I just made my pick.  The "safe" pick of the week is whoever is playing the Dolphins. Like 70% of the survivors picked them. If you want to survive- it pays to "save" the top teams- like the Patriots, until you have to use them... If Miami stages the big upset- a bunch of folks are going down in flames, especially those in one strike leagues....

Well, of course it works. Alive and perfect  so far. I'm  even giving  away  trade secrets for the amateurs in this competition. Another  one, never  take  the Browns.  Z started off with a strike  game one ignoring  that caveat.
