CYST: Week 13

Analysis Opinion Picks
Website | + posts

I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi where I learned the three rules of life: Lord loves a workin' man; don't trust whitey; see a doctor and get rid of it.

Week 13.  We’re getting closer to the end of the 2017 season (to the delight of Packer fans).  Big game in the NFCS Sunday when the 8-3 Panthers visit the 8-3 Saints.  The Saints can all but kill the Panthers’ chances of taking the division with a win so we all know that means New Orleans will shit the bed.  We have two match-ups between our divisions with the battle of the bays and Minnesota visiting Atlanta.  I cannot bring myself to cheer for the Falcons, so just let me say I hope the Vikings shit the bed (much like Shooter after a night of b-hole popping).

Big week for me, with three points, I moved into a tie for third place with Potatoes.  Reggie picked up a couple of points to strengthen his grip on first place.  Jmac and LKP fondled each other in the spread for a point each.  While it doesn’t count for anything in the NFCN/S standings, Potatoes did correctly predict the outcome of some dumb AFC game.  That’s it.  You guys suck.  Just go to the comments.

(I can’t believe most of you picked the LOLions to win.)


Nailed It:

  • Potatoes nailed the Titans/Colts game, but he gets no credit here.

(Ha ha, Potatoes, you bitch.)

The above only represents games that involved the NFCN or NFCS.  If you wish, the leader board for those who weren’t too “busy” to pick all the games is here.  I’ve also stopped posting all of you who have yet to get a point in CYST.  I know you claim that it is because you’re not picking the games, but we all know that it is because you suck.




Wondering why some of the names have a different background color?  Well, that’s because a feature was added to the CYST site.  If you click on My Account on the top right of the CYST site (when you’re logged in), you will see my todo list for that page, but also a color picker.  If you choose a color there (and click update), that color will be the background on the site in tables where your name appears.

No NFCN/S game tonight, but it is a match up of division rivals.  The Redskins leave our nation’s capital to take on the Cowboys in Arlington, Texas.  In many years, this game would be very important, but Philly is running away with the NFCE and the way things are looking, that division isn’t going to get a wild-card.  Go, go make your picks.  How do you get to the site so that you can pick games?  Well, that’s a good question.  If only there was a uniform resource locator in the form of a hyperlink.
