CYST: Week 3

Lottery Balls

Here we are, week 3.  What have we learned?  Well, the Saints “defense” came back to Earth and they truly lost to Cleveland on the field.  Luckily for them, the NFL determines winners and losers by the scoreboard.  Speaking of losers, the Packers are a dropped INT and a missed FG away from being 0-2.  It looks like Atlanta went out and hired Green Bay’s training staff, as their players are dying faster than someone who ate gas station sushi.  The Bucs are clicking and should continue to do so until they herp derp and make Winston the starter after his suspension is over.  Chicago, who really should be 2-0, has a scary good defense and if Trubisky can just be a game manager without making mistakes, the Bears could have a winning season.  The Panthers are 1-1, making the NFCS the only division in football without a winless team.  Minnesota may not be who we thought they were, but they’re still a good team and the class of the NFCN.  Finally, we have the Lions.  The 0-2 Lions.  They’re bad.

Onto CYST.

Big news!  I called the Seahawks/Bears game.  Nailed it; like I do to your mother.  So, before you question my opinions on football, remember, I was right and am now in first place.  Oh, and Curtis nailed the same game, so it’s like he got my sloppy seconds.

  • Nope

(I’m sure those that picked Minnesota would have gotten a point here if they didn’t Viking that game.)

 

Nailed It:

  • Curtis Fryer, Seattle Seahawks@Chicago Bears
  • thenichels, Seattle Seahawks@Chicago Bears

(Having Curtis’ name there kind of cheapens the accomplishment.)

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.  This only contains those of you who actually scored a point in CYST.  You’ll notice that you don’t see MKE, Donny or SDL here cause they suck at this.  They’ll tell you that it’s because they haven’t played, but that’s no excuse.  Make sure to clown them below.  Want to see your name here?  Do better and stop sucking.

 

YOU CAN SEE THE ‘ALL GAMES’ LEADER BOARD HERE!

 

Wondering why some of the names have a different background color?  Well, that’s because of a fantastic feature of 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 Thursday night game for the NFCN or NFCS, but don’t wait until Sunday to make your picks. Get your but over to CYST and make a pick for the Jets @ Browns game.  The next great bust vs the guy who beat out Baker Mayfield for the starting jop.  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.
