Monday Night: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Jacksonville Jaguars
Bye Week: None until week 3

The Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 2:

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
Coach Haw has already matched his win total from last year and we're only through one week of the season. But it isn't going to be easy for him to double the W's, as the Vipers look like they'll have a decent week. Get out the antacids - the Steelers D on MNF might be needed to complete a comeback.

Misfits (-1) vs. Renegades
The Misfits are off to a great start after a high-scoring win last week, while the Renegades scored the least points in the league. Only Indy's Defense will make this one moderately interesting.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Rough Riders
This one will be a lot closer than Yahoo's prediction. Especially if the Preds once again leave as many points on the bench as they put on the field. And if the Riders actually start someone at TE.

Yuengling Brewers (-1) vs. Marauders
Both of these teams had a tough week 1. The Brewers scored enough points to beat every team in the league other than their opponent. The Marauders had their QB knocked silly and had to leave Portis on the bench because the information came in late about his MNF readiness. Things don't get any easier for Coach Hoss this week. Not with Alex Smith at the helm.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Roethlisberger might be back this week, which may be good or bad for the 'Bums. Plus, Carson Palmer can't be held to zero points again, can he? Not against the Browns.

And the game of the week...

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
This game has two evenly matched teams going head-to-head in what could really end up as a tie. Both Sunday and Monday night's games are extremely important for the final result. It's just a shame that Coach Drew probably won't have cable tv hooked up in his apartment yet. Hey, there's always StatTracker...

Good luck this week.
