    I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere, but with the season upon us again who's up for a re-run of the Suurvivor Challenge that we had last year?

    There is no prize other than bragging rights, but it is just a little something to add interest to the season.

    The way it works is you pick one team to win each week, if your team wins, you move on, if they lose you are eliminated. Also you may only pick a team once per season.

    Last year we would just check in and announce whether we were still alive after the Monday Night game was completed, and it was ruled by the honor system. Your picks are posted here for all to see however.

    I'll start off by picking the Bears over the Packers on the road for week 1.

    Set it up--I am the defending Champeen--and I am ready to repeat!!

    EDIT: I was actually thinking of the elimination game that we had going--I think it was a Yahoo game...I don't recall who set that up though...

    I think the way to win this thing, is to get by with picking lesser teams when appropriate and then saving the "sure things" for later. The key is to choose whoever is playing the Packers, but only if it is a home or away game. Therefore I will take the Saints winning on the road and having a decent QB in Brees and Reggie Bush into account and pick them over the extreme suckitude of the Packers. New Orleans over Green Bay for me.

    I'll take the Colts over the Texans.

    My theory is to take the sure things up until you can't anymore.
