The Comm-nosticator's predictions for week 11:

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Rough Riders
Both of these teams are right in the thick of the playoff race. In fact, this one is going to be closer than you think. If the Riders can switch out --empty-- for an actual Defense, I'm turning this prediction around.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
I was wrong - apparently LaDanian Tomlinson can score thirty+ points every week. This high-flying matchup will be fun to watch. In fact, it might be the game of the week if anyone else in the league cared about the outcome.

Misfits (-1) vs. ray ray haw
If the playoffs started this week, the Misfits would be watching from afar and all the points they have scored would be for nothing. The bright side is that there are still three weeks left for the 'Fitz to claw back into the top eight. Ray ray haw would like nothing better than to put that climb on hold and secure a postseason spot for themselves.

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Wouldn't it be a great story if the Marauders pull out an upset this week and stop the Chair's unprecidented winning streak? Even with Clinton Portis on IR and Brett Favre under center? It would be one bright spot in Coach Hoss' hard luck season, anyway.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Coach Thadtotti is looking to extend his own winning streak to two games. Meanwhile, the Renegades are actually getting better by standing still. If Dominic Rhodes and Torry Holt get hurt they may have a playoff caliber team. Unfortunately, with one more loss they'll be mathematically eliminated from getting there.

And the game of the week...

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
It doesn't get much better than this. Everyone is predicting a tie, and that just might be the case, but the Vipers need a win more than the 'Morons do. We would all be talking about Coach Drew's impressive seven game winning streak if it wasn't for the perfect year of the Chair. Anyway, stay tuned for the Monday Night finale in this one.

Good luck this week.
