The Comm-nosticator's predictions for week 4:

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Assuming the 'Morons have a complete roster this week, they are getting a gift. The Brewers are a mess right now, with Shaun Alexander out and TO doing whatever it was he was doing. Baltimore's Defense could still keep this one interesting, though.

Misfits (-1) vs. Lightning
How does the team with the most points in the 3FL have a 1-2 record? Two straight high-scoring losses by one point, that's how. Maybe this week the 'Fitz will be on the winning end of a late night comeback. And if Westbrook doesn't play, maybe not.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Marauders
This will be a close game, as both teams have interesting matchups to exploit. But it will come down to how the Qs end up for the weekend. On a side note, can someone please explain to me how Maurice Morris fell to the 5th team in waiver priority?

Dumbbums (-1) vs. Rough Riders
The Steelers are off this week, and the 'Bums are probably better because of it. Some key Riders are also on the bye. The big difference is that Coach Coaldog will fill his starting roster with players who actually have games.

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
One of these two will reach the .500 mark this week, and it's going to be a battle. It really could go either way, as the players on each team have either been hot or cold. Michael Vick will be the difference, as he is ready to make up for last week's performance.

And the game of the week...

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
This is going to be a good early season test for both teams. Expect a tight game with three things to watch - the haw's RB running against his own Defense, the battle of Philly TEs (with the edge going to the one you've heard of), and Philip Rivers (filling in for Eli Manning) running for his life all game long.

Good luck this week.

Go vote.

    More important than the fact that half or our league has the same record is that the record we share is a losing one. How are a few teams allowed to hoard all the wins!

    There is a fourth Player MVP:
    Carson Palmer (QB/Cin) - 21 points on the Lightning bench

    Q: How did M. Morris fall to the 5th team in waiver priority?
    A: I was too busy trying to work out a mutually beneficial deal with the Rough Riders and didn't think about drop/adds until it was too late. She is still mulling over the deal, forcing me to play a RB against my own Defense!!!
