Bye Week: Dallas, Kansas City, Oakland, San Diego

The Comm-nosticator's predictions for week 3:

Rough Riders (-1/2) vs. Lightning
This one looks to be a good matchup, and having both starting TEs on a bye will add to the drama. Even though Coach Bev only starts 8 of 9 active players, the Riders RBs will pick up the slack, and the Lighting will be left waiting for a Sunday night comeback. And hoping that benching Carson Palmer does not lead to frustration.

Renegades (-1) vs. Marauders
Coach Hoss is hoping that week 3 doesn't bring loss 3 to the Marauders. But RB injury issues and the need to cover his Defense's bye week make that a difficult task. Plus, Michael Vick is capable of "pulling a Cooley" and securing a last minute victory during a Prime Time game for the Renegades once again.

Baltimorons (-1) vs. ray ray haw
Daunte Culpepper should break out against Tennessee this week, and he may be the difference in this one. They'll both be interested in the Steelers game, too; between these two teams I think that every important player in the Pittsburgh-Cincinnati matchup will be utilized. Except for Carson Palmer - he's on the Lightning's bench.

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Always an interesting battle, Chair vs. 'Bums will not disappoint. But the two most prolific RBs in the NFL are both on a bye this week, one for each of these two teams. Instead we'll have to follow some different storylines. First, the debut of Coach Skrabby's fourth round pick. And second, the ongoing question of whether any of the 'Bums WRs will even catch a pass.

Yuengling Brewers (-1) vs. Spiked Vipers
The Vipers pulled out a surprising victory against the haw last week, but the Brewers matchups this week make that difficult to repeat. Still, you never know what Coach Googullymoogully's two Saints will do in their emotional return to the Superdome. We'll all have to tune in to Monday Afternoon Football to see (kickoff is at 2:30pm Hawaii time).

And the game of the week...

Misfits (-1/2) vs. Predacons
Interestingly enough, Coach Sinkerbeam and the External Consultant to the Misfits are also locked in a battle for the FMLB title right now. With a team at its peak and some soft matchups in both sports, the extended Misfits organization should sweep the weekend. McNabb to Ichiro is a lethal combination. Don't the Argyle Sox know that the #1 seed never ends up the champion?

Good luck this week.

Go vote.
