3FL Notes: Week 1 Preview

Can the Renegades defend the title? Will the Lightning score over 1,000 points again this season? Are the Predacons ready to return to the playoffs? Only the 3FL season will have the answers...

It all starts on Thursday night!
Remember to have your starting lineups set 5 minutes before the games start this week. Any players in the Redskins vs. Giants game will be locked in whichever lineup position you have them at 6:55pm EDT on Thursday.

Voting is back!
You can once again vote on who YOU think will win each 3FL game. All votes need to be in before the Thursday night game, so vote soon. It won’t take you long. I'll keep a tally again this year and we can see how the predictions turn out.

And don't forget to vote in the 3FL Polls on the sidebar on the right side of this blog. Also in the sidebar, there is a new Polls Archive in the 3FLinks section where our results will be kept.



Week 1 Information

Thursday Night: Washington Redskins @ New York Giants
Sunday Night: Chicago Bears @ Indianapolis Colts
Monday Night Early: Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers
Monday Night Late: Denver Broncos @ Oakland Raiders
Bye Week: None until week 4



And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 1:
The first week is always the toughest to predict, but here goes...

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Predacons
This one looks pretty even, but Peyton and Ocho Cinco are not yet at full strength. If the Preds want to win they'll have to start the season off with a Monday night comeback.

Rough Riders (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
There are a lot of "expected to play in week 1" notes beside the players on these two teams. Except for S.Smith - he's suspended and for sure out until week 3. I wonder if anyone will notice...

ray ray haw (-1) vs. Spiked Vipers
How is the team with the number one pick this good? Include ome tough matchups for SpiVi and this father-son rivalry starts off with a whimper. As a consolation, the NFL reduced B.Marshall's suspension.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
The Yahoo Brew look pretty strong to open the season (even if their coach hasn't looked at them yet). But Coach Hoss will hope his first pick can mount a comeback and save week 1.

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
The last two league champions meet in a great battle this week, and it should be a close one. The 'Morons have their players spread out from Thursday night to Tuesday morning so it will be a waiting game for everyone.

And the game of the week...

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
Minc has the slightest of edges in this one, but if J.Lewis doesn't play things could change. Who among them will stay up until 1:15am on Tuseday to see how it turns out?

Good Luck in Week 1 and for the rest of Season 8!

Go vote...
