The Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 11:

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Marauders
If it wasn't for Bill Belichick, the Preds would have just about clinched the 3FL West with the second set of divisional games still to go. As it stands they need to keep fighting and hoping for the Steelers to win this week without much production from Big Ben. The Marauders need a victory here to keep a thin sliver of postseason hopes alive.

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
In a great matchup that will play out in prime time, these two division foes will clash in what should be an epic battle. A combined six players are active under the lights (although with DST finished I realize it now gets dark at 5pm). It's a shame that the haw's cable plan doesn't include ESPN because Monday Night Football will decide it all!

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Where have all the RBs gone? The two starters for the 'Fitz are both out, with one injured and one really injured. That might be enough for the 'Morons to sneak out of this week with a victory. But after last week I wouldn't bet against the Corp's Sunday night magic.

Spiked Vipers (-1) vs. Yuengling Brewers
With soft matchups across the board, the Vipers are looking to leapfrog the Brewers in the standings with a win. The Brew Crew has lost two straight and is going to have to rely heavily on Tom Brady to have a chance here. We'll have a clearer picture after tonight's game. That no one can watch.

Renegades (-1) vs. The Comfy Chair
The Chair could be assured a seat as a spectator during the postseason with a loss. And if that's not enough pressure, Coach Val gets to start Kurt Warner vs. the Rams and Cincinnati's D vs. the Raiders. Sorry, Chair. At least the cushion is soft.

And the game of the week...

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Lightning
This could finally be the break the Bolts have been looking for - a head-to-head matchup that would vault them to the top of the 3FL North. If they win. Coach Bev and Peyton Manning have a different idea. SNF will be fun, with Jay Cutler (Lightning) up against the Eagles D (Stompers). It's like every point will be doubled.

Good luck this week!

1 comment:

  1. There are several playoff scenarios this week, made even more interesting with our new division structure:

    Misfits can clinch the East division with a win, a tie or a Brewers loss

    Predacons can clinch the West if they do better than the Renegades.

    Dumbbums can clinch the South with a win (against the haw).

    The North cannot be clinched this week.

    Stompers and 'Bums can clinch playoff spots if they do better than any two of the Vipers, Renegades or 'Morons.

    Predacons and Lightning can clinch playoff spots if they win and any two of the Vipers, Renegades or 'Morons lose.

    The Comfy Chair will miss the playoffs if they do worse than any of the Vipers, Renegades or 'Morons.

    Good Luck!
