Week 8 – Survivor Pools

If you
didn’t have the Colts or the Patriots in Week 7, you did not have a solid
selection entering the week. In my case, the Giants did not come to play on
Sunday night and blew a touchdown lead twice. The Panthers also showed how good
they really are at home against the Bills. Another six teams have a bye this
week. Check out this week’s analysis on the 13 games.


I am not
going to select one team each week for the remainder of the year since I have not
done well this season. I apologize for that, but am ready to rebound as we near
the second half of the season!


Week 8



@ Baltimore – Stay away.


need this game, but the Broncos are undefeated. I like to lean
towards the team who needs it more.



@ Buffalo – Avoid this one.
What’s up with





– Have to like the Bears here to bounce back at home after they were
embarrassed by another AFC North team. Here’s your No. 1 selection this


St. Louis

@ Detroit – Too bad they are
wasting a good matchup for an opponent by playing each other. Maybe Steven
Jackson will finally reach the endzone.



@ N.Y. Jets – The Jets were 1-0 in
the division with a big win against

. However, they dropped to 1-2 with losses to

Miami and

They need to win this one at home, but the Dolphins have been playing well –
except for the second half collapse against

New Orleans
– which may have taken a toll on them.


San Francisco

@ Indianapolis – Peyton
Manning continues to dominate. First half MVP, no question. If you have Indy,
use ‘em.





Cowboys have a chance to move up in the NFC East with the Giants playing the
Eagles on Sunday. I expect them to win, but

will put up a fight. I’d look elsewhere.


NY Giants

Philadelphia – Big
game this early in the season. Will the Giants lose three straight and fall to
5-3? Will the Eagles be without Westbrook?




– Stay away.



@ San Diego – You can never
believe in

Oakland. They may have
their games, but they’re still a terrible football team. The Chargers are an
option, even in this divisional game.



@ Green Bay – The first
meeting was fun, but Brett Favre at Lambeau in a different uniform is going to
be better.



@ Arizona –

has pulled off two big wins on the road. Are they ready to come home and
continue that success or are they in for a letdown? I’m going to avoid this
game for that reason.

Atlanta @

New Orleans
– High scoring affair on Monday Night Football! This should be fun.






San Diego.
In that order.


team you should avoid


Arizona. Coming off
two big road wins, they may have a letdown. There are other options with less
risk this week.
