And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 10:

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The comfortable ones are back in first place after a week away from the top. With our history, though, that might not be a great place to be sitting four weeks from now. Last week the Preds finally made all the right coaching decisions for the first time this season. And lost. Who will make the right calls in this one? We do know that this battle will go end to end, as both teams have at least one player going in each NFL time slot.

Stiletto Stompers (-1) vs. Renegades
The Renegades finished up an incredible comeback on MNF last week but don't look for a repeat. Matt Cassel at QB and a couple of waiver wire RBs (because of the final MNF bye weeks of the year) are going to make things difficult. Plus Coach Bev's team looks poised for another high flying score in this year's twin billing. And with two players on Monday night maybe the comeback tables will be turned.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Marauders
As if a 1-7-1 team needs a smack in the face, the Marauders have four bye week players to deal with in this game. And then they'll have to watch Vick and DJax put things out of reach for FitzCorp on MNF. But don't feel too bad for Coach Hoss - as of right now he is #1 out of 32 entries in our NFL Pick'em.

Lightning (-1) vs. Spiked Vipers
Like Hines Ward says - when you have two rivals playing each other you can throw out the records. Regardless of the standings this is going to be a great one to watch, and not just because of all the amusing smack talk leading up to the game. If only the Vipers had Drew Brees this week...

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Our dim-witted rivalry week matchup could possibly be our best. These teams stack up evenly in all facets of the game and it will come down to Big Ben's performance on Sunday night to decide the outcome. Plus, the Baltimorons are playing against the Baltimore defense on Thursday. What else could you ask for during rivalry week?

And the game of the week...

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
This has been one of the more enjoyable 3FL rivalries to watch in the past and it looks like the fun will continue. It will require a bit of paying attention to even out the matchups, but it should be a good one. Now if everyone could just get access to the NFL Network (and stay up that late) we could watch the combined six players from these two teams start things off.

Good luck this week.
