3FL Notes: S7: Week 1 Preview

Can the Baltimorons defend the title? Will The Comfy Chair lose a game before week 12? Are the Predacons finally going to miss the playoffs? Only the 3FL season will have the answers...

It all starts on Thursday night!
Remember to have your starting lineups set 5 minutes before the games start this week. Any players in the Saints vs. Colts game will be locked in whichever lineup position you have them at 8:25pm EDT on Thursday.

Voting is back!
You can once again vote on who YOU think will win each 3FL game. All votes need to be in before the Thursday night game, so vote soon. It won’t take you long. I'll keep a tally again this year and we can see how the predictions turn out.

Week 1 Information

Thursday Night: New Orleans Saints @ Indianapolis Colts
Sunday Night: New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys
Monday Night Early: Baltimore Ravens @ Cincinnati Bengals
Monday Night Late: Arizona Cardinals @ San Francisco 49ers
Bye Week: None until week 4

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 1:
The first week is always the toughest to predict, but here goes...

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
First, allow me to proudly announce to the league that the Brewers organization is expecting a brand new microbrew this season. Rob's wife is pregnant and due right around the 3FL trade deadline. If you look in the sidebar to the right you'll see a new link to giblet's blog, which is all about their new addition. Unfortunately, this won't help his team against the defending champs this week.

Misfits, Inc. (-1) vs. Predacons
Although this matchup will be closer than the Misfits are anticipating, the #1 pick in the draft will show everyone why he was chosen first. The Preds are holding out a few starters for a Monday night comeback, though. One point victory, anyone?

The Comfy Chair (-1) vs. Marauders
I took a little bit of heat for the draft grade I gave to the Marauders. Don't get me wrong, I do think that they can be a force to be reconed with. Just not in week one.

Spiked Vipers (-2) vs. Rough Riders
The Vipers selected Peyton Manning with their first draft pick. The Riders selected Ben Roethlisberger. That's about all you need to know for this one.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Willie Parker gets to play against the Browns this week. That's good news for the Lightning and bad news for last year's runner up. Plus, Jon Kitna will be throwing INTs to Coach Thadtotti's Defense.

And the game of the week...

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. Renegades
These teams look to be evenly matched, but I'll give the nod to the haw and the Chicago Defense. Stay tuned for Thursday night - it could make or break either team.

Good Luck in Week 1 and for the rest of Season 7!

Go vote...

  1. Man, what a crazy first week. I don't think I even need to explain how things went far worse than expected. Bri was even 2 for 6 with his picks...I hope this coming week shows the true colors for all the teams and that this first week was just a fluke. Good luck everyone.
