    Anyone interested in playing "Survival Football" I've got a yahoo group set up for it:

    http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/survival

    Group ID#: 7095
    Group Password cyburbia

    For those that have never played, here's an overview:

    Welcome to Yahoo! Sports Survival Football, a weekly game that challenges you to show your skills by correctly identifying a winning professional football team in each of the 17 weeks of the regular season.

    Each week you must select one team that you suspect will be a winner in their game that weekend. If that professional team wins, you remain Active and are allowed to pick again the following week. If the professional football team you selected loses (or the game ends in a tie), you're Eliminated from the competition and may no longer make future picks.

    To make this simple sounding game more of a challenge, you can only select each professional football team once while an Active member of an individual group.
    EDIT:

    We've got 4 so far (me, Jeff, zMan, geobandito)....

    Anyone else? (You need not be in the Fantasy Football leagues to join...)

    Hope you don't mind, I joined.
    This looks interesting.
    I think that one of the great signs of security is the ability to just walk away.

    Just a reminder - there's a game Thursday night (September 6), so you have to make your pick for the week before then. And if you don't make a pick this week, you're done for the season.

    I think I did this wrong. I picked the team I thought would lose. I hope I can still go back and change my selection or I am screwed!

    You can change your pick until the first game of the week (tonight!) kicks off.

    I decided to join in the last minute. The power rankings at ESPN say I should be ok with going with oakland.
