3FL Notes: S8: Week 3 Preview

Last week saw another team hit the century mark, the Vipers change their logo, and the Commish's neighborhood lose power for the entire Steelers game.

Odds on a repeat of those things? Maybe, none, and I hope not.

The Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 3:

Lightning (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
It's a shame, but one of these teams will start the year 0-3. That's a tough hole to climb out of in this league. The slight edge to get on the winning track goes to Coach Thad, since the Chair's QB and DEF play against each other.

Predacons (-1) vs. Rough Riders
The Riders have started this season with a string of bad luck and things may not be any easier this week. Coach Bev does have some favorable matchups, though, and depending on the injury status reports the Preds may need the entire game on MNF to avoid the upset special.

Misfits (-1/2) vs. ray ray haw
A classic in the making. These teams look about even, but what is really up with LaDanian's toe? That answer could change things. So could Sunday night, with 5 players participating in the Cowboys/Packers game. Like you needed another reason to stay up and watch...

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
J.Kitna will step in this week and try to get the Brew Crew their first win. But the undefeated 'Bums counter with Steve Smith back from suspension. Still, it will be closer than you think.

Baltimorons (-1) vs. Marauders
Another week, another 'Morons comeback. But is it the Marauders turn this week? Can V.Jackson score more than 18 points? The answers to those two questions will have to be the same...

And the game of the week...

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
I flipped a coin to decide this one. It should be an instant classic, as these two match up really well on paper (on screen, actually). The Vipers will be finished at around 7:30pm on Sunday and they'll have to watch as the Renegades make a comeback attempt with their three remaining players. Even StatTracker can't wait.

Good luck this week.


  1. I love reading the weekly postings about the league and the Commish's picks. I think you do an amazing job! One question though, how does the "Predictions Tally" work? I like looking at that segment every week and I was just curious because I know there are 12 teams in the league but aren't there only 6 games to guess on? For instance, if the "Yahoo! Projections" category indicates Yahoo's pick for that week, is that stat in the Predictions Tally saying that Yahoo correctly guessed 3 out of the 6 games this past week? And if so, would it be 3/6 and not 6/12?

  2. You are correct. The tally is a running total of all of the games picked so far for the entire season. So in the week 1 wrap-up there were a total of 6 games that were voted on. For this past week (after two 3FL weeks) there are now 12 total games in the tally.
