The Comm-nosticator's predictions for week 8:

Baltimorons (-1) vs. Rough Riders
Riding four straight victories and competent bye week player management, Coach Drew has surged into second place in the league. The Riders have been both good and bad this year, but it looks like they won't have quite enough this week against a tough opponent.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
The upset special. Someone has to beat the Chair this year, right? It might as well be the Lightning, as they will have their best week of the season. Just watch Laurence Maroney complete the comeback on Monday Night. Or not...

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The Preds were undefeated until their bye week woes sent them to two straight losses. Their winning ways will resume, though. After this week. The haw's favorable matchups will continue the miserable mid-season for Coach Sinkerbeam.

Misfits (-1) vs. Spiked Vipers
The only reason this one might become interesting is because of all of Misfits who are on the injury report. And the stunning breakout game of David Carr against the Titans. And the tough luck of the Misfits this year.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Last week, the Renegades would have pulled the upset that I predicted if they had put any of their bench players in as staters. This week, unfortunately, will be the same. Close but no second win.

And the game of the week...

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Marauders
The 'Bums have been the highest scoring team for the past two weeks in a row. The Marauders have scored more than 400 points this season but only have two wins. Something's gotta give this week, as the loser of this one will have an uphill battle to the playoffs...

Good luck this week.

And birthday wishes to Coach Haw and Coach Jules this weekend.
