CYST: Week 17

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.

Here we are, week 17 of the 2020 NFL season.  The final regular season games of the 2020 NFL season.  By Sunday night, the 2020 NFL season will be over for a lot of teams that FYS users are fans of.  Bucs, Packers and the Saints are moving on, but if the Bears can do the impossible on Sunday, they too will extend their season by at least one game.  The rest of you losers get to cry in the corner while real teams fight it out in the playoffs.

Lite week last week.  Maybe some of y’all are giving up because I’ve pretty much run away with CYST this year.  Sure, I cheated, but if you ain’t cheating you ain’t trying.  Nate and LoW picked up a point each, but it didn’t help because I picked up 2 points, increasing my stranglehold on first place by 6 points.  Seriously tho, I haven’t cheated…I’m just that much better than you.


Total Points:

  • LambeauOrWrigley, 54, Tampa Bay Buccaneers over Detroit Lions

(Picking the Lions to lose; always a good choice.)

Margin of Victory:

  • thenichels, Carolina Panthers over Washington Football Team by 7 points

(I won this.)

Team Points:

  • natesweet, Jacksonville Jaguars 17 points in a loss vs. the Chicago Bears

(Nobody cares.)

Against The Grain:

  • thenichels, Carolina Panthers over Washington Football Team (14.29%)

(I’m actually surprised that I’m the only one to pick Carolina here.)

Nailed It:

  • Not so fast…

(We have had 7 of them this year tho.)

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, Nardo.


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, in fact, no games at all tonight; they’re all on Sunday.  Don’t wait to make your picks tho or you may forget about it.  Head on over to the CYST site (that someone made all by himself, with nobody’s help what-so-ever) and make your picks. Really, I’m not kidding, go do it now.  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 mind this part as I just wanted to say that as games get shuffled and if you made you picks for that game, it stayed with the game in its new date/time slot. Thank you, that is all.  Go make your picks.
