And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 8:

Renegades (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
Tom Brady is back from his bye week, and that means the Renegades are back in the favored column. Of course it will probably take Brady having a big day against the Steelers for them to win. Oh, well.

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Predacons
This one will be fun to watch. A great matchup is made even better by a Predacons comeback in the making. Too bad their starting RBs are both on a bye and all the matchups favor the footwear.

Misfits, Inc. (-1) vs. Marauders
These two teams are even in the standings, but the Marauders have scored a bunch more points. Not this week, though. The Corporation should take this one relatively easily, with the Eagles/Cowboys game playing a big role in their point total.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Someone has to win. With a combined 3-11 record, things can't be much worse for these two. But both can still make the playoffs with a little luck that starts this week. The Tebow era will begin for the Bolts and the result will come down to their three players on MNF.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
This line should technically be OFF, since both of these teams need to do some add/dropping to field a complete lineup. Will Stafford play? What about Jahvid Best and Andre Johnson? It will be interesting to see who is thought to be expendable from each roster to make room for the bye week fill-ins.

And the game of the week...

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
It's a shame that this rivalry has to be played during Aaron Rodgers' bye week. Otherwise we'd be set for a tie instead of giving the league-leading haw a slight advantage. Both teams have players in all four time slots, so it won't be over until early Tuesday morning.

Good luck this week.
