And just like that, my Survivor season is kaput. To my credit, my decision to take San Francisco in this game had more to do with who wasn’t going to play for Chicago than who was already playing for the 49ers.
In the immortal words of Eddie Vedder, ‘Ooooh Iiiiii, ohhhh I’m still alive.’
The Eagles came through for me in Week 1 with a second-half comeback, prevailing 34 – 17 over the Jaguars.
On to Week 2, my pick is the San Francisco 49ers to beat the Chicago Bears on Sunday night.
Seventeen doesn’t get the buzz that its odd-number counterparts 7-11, Lucky 13 and Product 19 get. When it comes to NFL Survivor Pools, though, the number 17 might as well be numeric royalty.
