3FL Notes: Week 1 Preview

We are only hours away from the beginning of our 10th 3FL season!

Can the Spiked Vipers defend the title and keep the trophy? Will new logos lead to renewed success for Coach Haw and/or Coach Skrabby? Will anyone else sign up for a twitter account? Only the 3FL•X season will have the answers...

It all starts on Thursday night!
Remember to have your starting lineups set 5 minutes before the games begin this week. Any players in the Vikings vs. Saints game will be locked in whichever lineup position you have them at 8:25pm EDT on Thursday.

Coach Thadtotti once again calculated and spreadsheeted (it sounds better than the alternative, no?) our customized schedule. Each team once again plays its division rivals twice and everyone else once, and we have special rivalry matchups during week 10. Division winners will receive top playoff seeds so inter-division play is very important.



Week 1 Information

Thursday Night: Minnesota Vikings @ New Orleans Saints
Sunday Night: Dallas Cowboys @ Washington Redskins
Monday Night Early: Baltimore Ravens @ New York Jets
Monday Night Late: San Diego Chargers @ Kansas City Chiefs
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...

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
We'll know a lot more about where this one is headed after tonight's NFL opening game, when 44% of the Vipers are playing. It could be a high flying final score with Drew Brees and Peyton Manning taking to the air.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
This one should be close, but Tony Romo gets to start against the Redskins. Edge to the Stompers. Then again, Randy Moss. I guess everyone will just have to sit through the Pred's RBs in the late Monday night game to find out the winner.

Marauders (-1) vs. Dumbbums
Coach Coaldog is going to change out his suspended QB before Sunday's games, right? COACH? The Marauders are in a tough division, but they still don't need a freebie in week one.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Can Kevin Kolb lead both the Eagles and FitzCorp to glory this year? Ask me in about 8 weeks. I do know that the 'Morons will be within striking distance when their Defense takes the field at 10:30pm on Monday night.

Lightning (-1) vs. ray ray haw
Two games will decide this one. It's QB vs QB in the Bengals/Patriots matchup, and the Bolts Defense against a WR and RB of the the haw at Heinz Field. Coach Thadtotti has a good team on paper, but the haw(k) have a new logo (is that a hawk? Because then I get it) and players stretching from Thursday to Monday past midnight.

And the game of the week...

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Our first tie? An even matchup in all facets of the game, this battle may come down to if Chris Johnson can live up to the hype of being the #1 overall pick. I have a feeling that Aaron Rodgers is in for a huge year, but will he start piling up points this soon?

Good luck in Week 1 and for the rest of Season 10!
