And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 7:

THE Haw (-1) vs. Predacons
The CAPs gave our only remaining undefeated team their first loss last week. Now they'll face the surprising Preds, who may or may not be returning Jay Cutler to the starting QB position. At least Coach Sinkerbeam will get to watch the implosion of his team on Monday night.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
The Bolts have their starting QB, RB and TE on a bye. That should be a sure loss for any fantasy football team, but for some reason the matchups are going to make this one close. It's all going to come down to a couple of coaching decisions and the Steelers/Bengals game on Sunday night. You know we all can't wait to hear Al Michaels say Roethlisberger.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
Coach Hoss took his first loss last week (and his team only scored 24 points in the effort). FitzCorp doubled their win total with a Peyton Manning MNF second half outburst. In fact, the 5-1 Marauders have scored 31 less points than the 2-4 Corporation this season. But none of that matters. What matters is that a combined six starters are on a bye.

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
The Stompers haven't had much luck this year. They have lost six straight (seven if you go back to week 13 of 2011). The 'Morons have lost their last three in a row. So the good news here is that one of them will break their streak and pick up a win. The bad news is that we all have to vote before either of them hits the waiver wire to pick up two starters each.

And the games of the week...

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
We'll begin and end the NFL week with players from this battle of the 4-2s. A combined four will play tonight and then the Brewers' D will attempt to push them ahead on MNF. It's almost too close to call, but I'm going with the team that will be starting an angry Tom Brady.

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
Yes, a second game of the week. How could I just pick one of these two amazing matchups? This one will feature Rodgers vs. Brees in what should be the highest flying game of the year. SpiVi is 2nd overall in scoring, but the 'Gades outscored the rest of the league for the past two weeks in a row. The points are coming in waves. And we'll know the winner by 7:30pm on Sunday night.

Good luck this week.
