This. First couple survivors I was ever in, I tried to play it cute and would always wash out. Took that for me to figure out, "It's not about getting to the end; it's about not being stupid right now." One particular pool (NCAA tourney) I was in was mine to command for a few years after that.
Incidentally, I have already seen three articles suggesting that yesterday's game confirmed that Romo is a choker.
He made a bad throw there at the end (not being physically in position to make a throw yet trying to force one in anyway) which does seem to happen to him a hell of a lot.
"Too popular" is a terrible reason to not pick a team in survivor. Make the best pick every time and let everyone else get too cute.
I don't think this is true. If 40% are expected to pick Atlanta today, and they have a 69% chance of winning the game, and you can go with a team that only 12% are picking, but has a 68% chance winning, you go with the latter. To win a big survivor pool you need to get lucky with a big blow to a lot of entries. This is how you get it.
On the other hand if "too popular" is shorthand for "this team isn't as good as people think they are"* then I'm completely on board.
My guess is that player safety is the issue,
I am not even sure you should be trying to block a low percentage field goal; given all of the innocuous things you can be penalized for.
in spite of what Raiders fans understandably won't admit, both that one and this one were correct calls.
The number one rule there is "don't commit a penalty."
If that penalty has been added to the rulebook this year then Belichik needed to make sure his players knew about it. You have a rookie trying to make a play and I doubt he even knew about it. Not that I could really see what he did from the replay. I guess some Pats player did seem to get ejected out of the pile.
And if someone is not familiar with the tuck rule play, I'm not sure an intelligent conversation on this topic is possible. Even Belichick didn't realize what it was at the time, iirc.

My Mom is in town, and made us watch this game tonight, first full non-sb nfl game I've watched in some time (I live in Indy, so this game has obviously gotten obscene attention) and noticed something, Indy played man to man all game. Does anybody else do that vs Den?
The New York Jets were aware of the New England Patriots' previous use of the illegal pushing technique on field goals, and they made sure Sunday's game officials knew it, too.
In fact, the Jets' sideline alerted the officiating crew during the game to watch out for it, a person familiar with the situation told ESPN.com Monday.
Sure enough, the Patriots were busted in overtime, and it cost them the game.
So this was a bad week to start Oakland's Pass Defense in fantasy football?
The Miami Dolphins have suspended starting guard Richie Incognito for conduct detrimental to the team.
Incognito was being reviewed by the Dolphins, the NFL and the NFLPA for harassment of teammate Jonathan Martin, who left the team last week following a lunchroom incident.
"The Miami Dolphins have suspended Richie Incognito for conduct detrimental to the team," the Dolphins said in a statement. "We believe in maintaining a culture of respect for one another and as a result we believe this decision is in the best interest of the organization at this time. As we noted earlier, we reached out to the NFL to conduct an objective and thorough review. We will continue to work with the league on this matter."
Incognito started all eight games for the Dolphins (4-4) this year. He will be an unrestricted free agent after the season.
Should San Diego have gone for the win on the one yard line at the end of regulation?
Hooray for Foles! Trade him to the Cardinals!
Incognito, who has been a part of Miami's six-player leadership council
Should Houston have heaved a Hail Mary into the end zone to win, rather than trying a low percentage FG to tie?
if I were the head coach I would literally never use my timeouts outside of 3 minutes to go in the game, or clock ticking down in the first half. The 5 yard penalty for delay of game is not worth (a) being out of challenges in the first/second half, or (b) being unable to stop the clock at the end.
Jonathan Martin’s toughness is not at issue. Jonathan has started every game with the Miami Dolphins since he was drafted in 2012. At Stanford, he was the anchor for Jim Harbaugh’s “smash mouth” brand of football and he protected Andrew Luck’s blind side.
The issue is Jonathan’s treatment by his teammates. Jonathan endured harassment that went far beyond the traditional locker room hazing. For the entire season-and-a-half that he was with the Dolphins, he attempted to befriend the same teammates who subjected him to the abuse with the hope that doing so would end the harassment. This is a textbook reaction of victims of bullying. Despite these efforts, the taunting continued. Beyond the well-publicized voice mail with its racial epithet, Jonathan endured a malicious physical attack on him by a teammate, and daily vulgar comments such as the quote at the bottom. These facts are not in dispute.
Eventually, Jonathan made a difficult choice. Despite his love for football, Jonathan left the Dolphins. Jonathan looks forward to getting back to playing football. In the meantime, he will cooperate fully with the NFL investigation.
Quote from teammate: “We are going to run train on your sister. . . . She loves me. I am going to f–k her without a condom and c– in her c—.”
Tennessee kicked a field goal to cut a six point lead to three early in the fourth quarter (4th and 10).
That seems like a perfectly sensible decision to me. The other one much less so.
Punting on 4th and 1 from your own 29 with eight minutes left in a game you're losing by three doesn't seem sensible to you? It does to me.
So what's the early verdict on Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense? Is he still doing it? Has it been shown to work thus far?
lesean mccoy leads in the NFL in rushing yards and yards from scrimmage (rushing + receiving) while being top 5 in yards per carry.
desean jackson is 3rd in the NFL in receiving yards.
nicksean foles has a 16:0 TD:INT ratio.
