Not yet. Will try it when the season gets closer.

Yeah, I was surprised how the offense looked so crisp.

I logged in and made picks but don't think you can see others picks until Wednesday (I assume the day before the first game of week)...

I think Pickles is right.. we can't see others' picks until later this week when it goes fully live.

Don't forget the division contest we have as well! I need to get cracking on my own entry....

So far, it seems like only Pickles and I have tried out the picks group. Looks like it is working so far.

Here are my picks for the division contest.

American Football Conference

AFC East
New England Patriots - The rest of this division is a dumpster fire.

AFC South
Tennessee Titans - Went with the only stable QB situation. Houston's due for a regression with yet another QB shuffle, despite Bill O'Brien quietly being the best coach in the NFL (winning 9 games a season with a revolving door of terrible QBs).

AFC West
Oakland Raiders - Derek Carr and the Raiders light it up in their short remaining time in Oakland, covering up the suspect defense.

AFC North
Pittsburgh Steelers - The Steelers remain the class of the division.

AFC Wild Card Qualifiers:
Kansas City Chiefs - Andy Reid's teams are nothing but reliable, though they can't quite get over the hump.
Cincinnati Bengals - Rebound year for Cincy; just enough for Marvin Lewis to keep his job and stay the course.


National Football Conference

NFC East
New York Giants - Could be Eli Manning's last hurrah, with him showing his age. The Cowboys are going to miss Zeke.

NFC South
Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Only Carolina has ever won this division in consecutive years; time for Atlanta to regress during the Super Bowl hangover.

NFC West
Seattle Seahawks - Arizona's the only remote threat to Seattle winning this division.

NFC North
Green Bay Packers - Should be a few more years of Aaron Rodgers dominating the North.

NFC Wild Card Qualifiers
Dallas Cowboys - Even without Zeke, they've got enough to squeak into the postseason.
Detroit Lions - Jim Caldwell's somehow survived a front office change.

AFC Championship
New England Patriots over Oakland Raiders

NFC Championship
Green Bay Packers over New York Giants

Super Bowl XLV
Green Bay Packers over New England Patriots

--------

Don't forget to:

Please submit your answers before the beginning of regular season play at 8:30 EST (GMT-4) on Thursday, Sept. 7, 2017.

Just passing through, I'll try and have picks up by Thursday, but we're apparently having over a houseguest in the form of Irma and been getting ready for that. Don't freak if you don't see anything from me, but if Jacksonville gets wiped off the map, then you have permission to freak out.

Hang in there, Steven! Take your time on the division picks. Not very important right now.

Also, if you accept the invite to the CBS group, it looks like I can edit your entry for you or enter your picks for you if you're unavailable.

Here are my picks for the division contest.

American Football Conference

AFC East
New England Patriots - The rest of the division stinks...

AFC South
Houston Texans - Even with O-Brien's revolving QB trend, they ought to be able to win this... but who knows.

AFC West
Kansas City Chiefs - Not a fan of this division, so tough one. DOn't like Da Raiders, and Denver is an unknown, so KC it is.

AFC North
Pittsburgh Steelers - The Steelers are old, better get it done again, before the total rebuild happens.

AFC Wild Card Qualifiers:
Denver Broncos - Somehow, they will squeak in. Oakland probably will make it however, but I can't pick them.
Cincinnati Bengals - Got a better chance than Cleveland I think. Baltimore might be the only hope, but Flacco is an uncertainty too.


National Football Conference

NFC East
New York Giants - Not a Dallas fan, or an Eli fan, but if anyone moves Dallas down (besides Elliot killing their chances) it might be NY or Philly. Go someone.

NFC South
New Orleans Saints - Atlanta will falter (hope) and I have Drew Brees in a fantasy team, so why not pick the Saints...

NFC West
Seattle Seahawks - Their big chance to get relevant and go far... but can they beat GB in week one. 49ers and Rams have no chance it seems.

NFC North
Detroit Lions - Hey, I was born there. And not a Rodgers fan, so go Detroit. Beat GB.

NFC Wild Card Qualifiers
Carolina Panthers - They should be better than they recorded last year, but maybe they were too good and played over their heads 2 years ago. Pick them so Dallas and Atlanta can be the next 2 to die after a glorious, not quite good enough year.
Green Bay Pack - They can't be that bad with Rodgers and Nelson and a d-fence.


AFC Championship
New England Patriots over Denver Broncos (I can dream)

NFC Championship
Seattle Seahawks over Green Bay Packers


Super Bowl XLV
New England Patriots over Seattle Seahawks (Brady retires then)
