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.
Last week, I started out by thanking MiB for bringing back the Power Rankings, but that looks like it was just a one time thing. So, to hell with MiB. While I have your attention, I would also like to point out that only one starting QB hasn’t thrown an INT this season and that the Falcons are 1-4.
Week 6 of the NFL is upon us. Sure, there is a lot of football to play, but this is about the time I start getting sad that the end of football season will be here before we know it. Speaking of football, my kid was kicking ass so much at left tackle last night that I got a call from the Vikings wanting to sign him. We declined.
Last week, I was a genius and picked up 2 points…Raji got 2 points as well, but we’re not talking about him. With out masterful picking, we have jumped over Curtis to take possession of 1st place. Other than that, it was really a light week with only ASR and DaBearz receiving a point. Not sure why MKE hasn’t gotten a point yet as he’s usually very good at these. Maybe the baby is keeping him up too late and hurting his concentration.
WEEK 5 WRAP UP
(This comes as no surprise.)
Margin of Vctory:
(You guys are getting really good at being bad.)
- raji, Philadelphia Eagles 21 points in a loss vs. the Minnesota Vikings
- thenichels, Detroit Lions 31 points in a win vs. the Green Bay Packers
- thenichels, Atlanta Falcons 17 points in a loss vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers
(I’m pretty freaking smert.)
Against The Grain:
- AllSaintsRow, Minnesota Vikings over Philadelphia Eagles (16.67%)
- dabearz84, Minnesota Vikings over Philadelphia Eagles (16.67%)
- raji, Minnesota Vikings over Philadelphia Eagles (16.67%)
(Sure, they all got a point but they also picked the Vikings.)
(Not eve a non-NFCN/S game.)

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. Glove, I’m really pulling for you. Maybe this is your week. Want to see your name here? Do better and stop sucking.
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 NFCN/S game tonight, but that’s no reason to not make your picks now. It’s Philly at the Giants. Some consider it a rivalry, to it may be entertaining to watch. Really, get on over to the CYST site and make your picks before you forget. 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.
DON’T FORGET TO MAKE YOUR PICKS FOR THIS WEEK’S GAMES
