The 2016 Survivor pool is open for business. Last year, @Thigpen82 won the title via a gentleman's game of Rock, Paper, & Scissors, as he and I seemed to be using the same crystal ball each week. This year, I've made it a double-elimination, so hopefully 90% of the players won't be out after week 1.
To join, go to the Survivor tab on the upper menu, from there, click on "Manage Your Pools" on the top menu. Join the 2016 pool, then click on "Manage Your Picks" on the top menu. From there you'll see a red "Make Pick" link which will take you to the pick selection page. You can choose one team to win each week, and you can only use that team once for the duration of the season.
Good luck and have fun.
Steelers Predict the Score Game Week 1Pittsburgh vs Washington
Welcome to 5th edition of thesteelersfans.com Steelers Predict the Score Game.
Follow the rules below and make your prediction. I'll publish the results after the game in a post on this thread. There will be 2 ways to win (a weekly winner and a yearly winner).
This weeks Game is:
Pittsburgh vs Washington
This week's tiebreaker is Steelers passing yards
The rules are simple. Whoever predicts the correct winner with the score closest to the actual score wins. For example if the score is Pittsburgh 28 Cincinnati 21 The method of determining your score is to take the value of the difference of your guess of the Pittsburgh score and the value of the difference of your guess of the opponent score. You also must pick the correct winner to make your pick valid. In case of a tie, the tiebreaker is used.
For example if TTFs prediction is 35-21 Steelers he would be 7 points from the actual score…..35-28=7 21-21=0...

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages...TSF.com proudly bring to you…the Official Fantasy Mock Draft!! Yes it’s that time of year again...a time a lot of us look forward to...a time that helps pass the days pass leading up to the draft.
For those of you not familiar with this...it’s pretty simple. There will be a sign up period where you pick a team (if all teams are not picked, then some of us will take on an additional team)...then we go through the draft as they do in real life, each team has a time limit, if the the expires they will be skipped...and if they still do not pick by the time the next pick is in then ANYONE can pick for that team. When it’s your turn, you pick the player you think your team needs, simple as that.
Also we will be allowing realistic trades between teams involving player currently under contract to your team and picks from this year’s draft can be made (as long as both teams...
I'm curious, because of some of the personnel decisions they've made over the course of several years.
Looking at the situation they had and having to play guys that were cut multiple times and not dressed for most of the year, what goes into those decision?
You had a bunch of unproven players showing that they could step up and play (some better than the starters they replaced). What's really going on with the player evaluations? Or is it just that those guys were more hungry for the chance that they played above their ceilings?
Okay, I'm reaching out to my all 22 brethren out there. Is JJ really as bad as he appears to be to those of us who simply watch the games and try to observe certain players from time to time?
In Thursday's game I saw JJ get owned by the LT and he seemed to just get absorbed into the lineman blocking him and unable to disengage. He had no speed rush, no bull rush, no inside move whatsoever. He also missed at least one tackle behind the LOS and didn't appear to be as solid in the run game which has been his strong suit to this point. As the game wore on and each defensive series became more critical, I didn't see JJ at all. It was all James Harrison.
I don't want to beat a dead horse, but my concerns about JJ being able to develop into something special at this level increase from week to week. I'm not so sure at this point that the spinal stenosis he was diagnosed with at USC is not affecting him more than we think.
What are you "dark room and a projector" guys seeing?
We've added something different this year (H/T @Ray D for suggesting it). You may be familiar with this already, but if you're not, the survivor (or last man standing pool) is a pick 'em game where you only pick one team to win each week.
Sounds pretty easy, but the catch is that you cannot pick the same team to win twice. If your selected team wins that week, great, you move on to the next week. If your chosen team loses (you get a strike), then you're eliminated.
To play, click the Survivor menu item on the navigation menu at the top of any page. On the Survivor page, you'll see the 2015 Regular Season Survivor Elimination Pick'em pool under the available pools, join it.
Once you've joined, click the manage my picks link in the sub-navigation menu on the top left.
From there, click the red link that says Make Pick and make your pick for the week. It shows every game for the week. Select the button next to the team you want to...
It's that time of year again. As you know, the pick'em is integrated into the forum this year, and the pool is now open to join. To join the pool, click on the Pickem link on the navigation bar at the top of every page (or just follow this link). http://thesteelersfans.com/forums/pickem/ There are only a few weeks showing right now. I'll have the rest loaded in soon.
You'll see the open pool there. Join it.
To make your picks, go to the manage your picks tab on the sub-navigation bar. (There's also a drop down menu for it under the main Pickem tab).
From here, click the edit your picks link.
After that, save your picks and you're good to go. Reminders are tied in to the alert system, so, if you're part of the pool and haven't made your picks, you should get a reminder to do so in the middle of the week. (These can be changed in your alert preferences)...
