    "Who are the Dolphins playing?" appears as if it'll be a pretty solid strategy this season. Good grief.

    I think this is generally a great strategy but I wouldn't be shocked if the dumpster fire known as the Jets found a way to lose one to Miami just to have fun with all of us...

    I would think that the fact the Dolphins are playing the Pats next might factor into your pick. And then I looked at all the other games.

    The early line on Ravens-Cardinals is very close to the line on Dophins-Pats. Ravens looked really good this week but I think the Pats should be favored by a lot more than the Ravens. Cardinals are bad, but Dolphins are epically bad.

    The 1-mistake allowed pool doesn't appear to be allowing 1 mistake (unless you count relying on the Cleveland Browns to not be the Cleveland Browns as a mistake in and of itself).
    Just be you. You is enough. - K, 4/5/10, 0:13.8 to play, 60-59 Duke.

    You're all jealous hypocrites. - Titus on Laettner

    You see those guys? Animals. They're animals. - SIU Coach Chris Lowery, on Duke

    Uh oh... I set the setting wrong. The only way I could fix it was to reset the group which means any mistakes in week 1 have been eliminated. It is like the 1 strike group starts on week #2. That also means it is not too late for folks to join that group if they want.

    I checked the link and I'm already in. Does that also mean that the team we used in week 1 will now be available to us?

    Yup, I am sure it will.

    I believe everyone who was previously in is automatically moved to the new contest. It is seamless for you.

    Time to pick the Browns again! Surely that can’t go wrong.

    Well I'm not taking them but with Jets QB Sam Darnold sidelined with mono the Browns are not a horrendous gamble.

    I see we have our first victim. Sue71 is gone from the No Mistakes Pool with her Thursday night pick of the Carolina Panthers. Multiple players pick up Strike 1 in One Mistake Pool.

    My pick for Week 2 is the Houston Texans over the Jacksonville Jaguars. My thought process is lots of folks going to take either New England or Baltimore this week so I wanted to avoid those two picks and root for an upset.

    Not looking good for the Texans at the moment.

    That’s hilarious. I thought I had picked the Titans and was monitoring that game. What a dummy I am. Phew!

    Do I get a prize, other than not having to remember to pick every week? 😁

    I will refund your entire entry fee for being the first one out. How about that?
