CYST: Week 2

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.

This is always the best CYST article to write. Week 1 is in the books and people are overreacting to the results…melts and optimism everywhere. Bears fans are ready to lynch Trubisky (not racist cause he’s a cracker) and Packer fans think Rodgers is back even though he only had one good pass the whole game (17 QB’s posted a rating over 100 and he wasn’t one of them). Jammin died after the Vikings embarrassed the Falcons which fired Shooter up for their showdown with the Packers. The Lions, well, JFC, I don’t even know what to say about their monumental fuck-ups anymore. Can’t really comment on Panther or Bucs’ fans because I don’t even think they exist anymore. The class of our little FYS bunch is the Saints’ fans tho. I mean, the Saints are obviously going to win the Super Bowl this year, but you don’t hear us crowing about it. We’re humble and reserved. Well, that, and we don’t really care about your shit team.

Normally, I’d recap how our regulars did in their picks last week, but I didn’t get any points, so it doesn’t matter. Okay, okay, here’s what the rest of you peons did…


Total Points:

  • Nope

(Should have known y’all would start out with a goose egg.)

Margin of Vctory:

  • Gabes22, Green Bay Packers over Chicago Bears by 7 points
  • natesweet, Los Angeles Rams over Carolina Panthers by 3 points

(Told you that it didn’t matter.)

Team Points:

  • bp, New Orleans Saints 30 points in a win vs. the Houston Texans
  • dabearz84, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 17 points in a loss vs. the San Francisco 49’ers
  • jmac34, New Orleans Saints 30 points in a win vs. the Houston Texans
  • LambeauOrWrigley, New Orleans Saints 30 points in a win vs. the Houston Texans
  • Curtis Fryer, Los Angeles Rams 30 points in a win vs. the Carolina Panthers
  • jmac34, San Francisco 49’ers 31 points in a win vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

(This might be LoW’s first ever points.)

Against The Grain:

  • Whole bunch of suck

(Tells you that even the Packer fans picked the Bears.)

Nailed It:

  • Nah.

(None of you got it right.)

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.  Want to see your name here?  Do better and stop sucking. This means you, SDL.


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.

There is a shitty Thursday night game for the NFCS, so you should make that pick today even if you’ll be doing something more fun than the game. Literally anything will be more fun than this game. Get your butt over to CYST and make a pick for the Tampa Bay @ Carolina game.  Totes exciting.  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.
