Im still alive, I have used Houston, Pittsburgh, and San Diego...

Going into Week 4 I see a couple possibilities

Green Bay vs Denver
Philadelphia vs San Fransisco
Tampa Bay vs Indianapolis

I have it narrowed down to 3 teams, originally had Philadelphia slotted for this week, but the early season woes have me weary on the Eagles... I am leaning the Bucs as of right now, I would like to save Green Bay for later in the season and if the Eagles turn it around, I will be able to use them later....Tell me what you guys think heading into this week

Once again if GB is your strongest play use them!  League changes too much week to week to bank on a strong team later.  I heard talk of not using Pitt this year as to save them for week 5.  How is Pitt looking now?  I wouldn't want to risk my season with that beat up offensive line.  Denver is due for a big game after 3 straight weeks of disappointment...so I am a bit nervous there.

I am not a fan of saving my survivor pick until Monday night...I hate sweating it out...you can't hide from the game, and everyone is in your ear hoping you lose, but once again if it is your strongest play...

What is the status with Vick?  I wouldn't dream of taking Philly if he is out, especially with that swiss cheese O-line

I think Chicago is a strong play.  I know Carolina has been a tough opponent all year and the Bears looked like absolute garbage against GB...but their defense always steps up...and I don't see a rookie QB coming into Soldier and stomping Da Bears.

Thats it for the home teams I like...if you wan't to gamble on the road then how about the Saints?  The should be able to score enough points to distance themselves from the Jags.

Also on the road I kind of like ATL...they are desperate for  win and are a better team than their record so far.

Thanks...

My only rule in survivor pools is don't use road teams.  I don't see Tampa or Green Bay losing this week, waiting to find out about Vick's status.  Even if he is good, I am nervous about the Birds....I still have until Friday to get my picked in

Bears are making me nervous because of the whole Ron (Chico) Rivera thing.  I know he is still bitter about getting the boot by Lovie a few years ago....he will have something special on D for Cutler and that weak O-line

Bears was easy pick strait up as GB. I agree, if you have strong teams and/or picks, fire away. Philly I wouldn't use with your picks,haha
