The Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 8:

Renegades (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
Their even records and almost even point totals aside, the winner of this game will have the upper hand in the fight for the playoffs. More importantly, the loser will not. But no matter what happens it won't be T.Romo's fault.

Yuengling Brewers (-1) vs. Rough Riders
The Brew Crew came out of nowhere last week and almost put 100 points on the board. They might not reach that total again, but they do get some favorable matchups against the bye week affected Riders.

Misfits, Inc. (-1) vs. Dumbbums
And through the 'Bums revolving door of QBs steps...Matt Cassel! Maybe he can turn the four game losing streak around. But with McNabb back on the field for FitzCorp, I wouldn't count on it.

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The new league leader looks to stay on top with a win in this even matchup. Most likely SpiVi will start the wrong QB and the Preds will start the wrong RBs, so things will really be decided by the arm of P.Manning on Monday night. How many TDs will he throw to the Vipers' D.Clark?

ray ray haw (-1) vs. Baltimorons
With the 'Morons starting QB, TE, and K on a bye, the haw should have a low stress weekend that ends with a win. Unless they put in a performance like last week. 29 points isn't going to cut it against the other team with two championships.

And the game of the week...

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Lightning
Both of these teams are coming off of solid wins last week, but only one will continue the trend. It's Eli vs. Ben in the NFL and the 3FL on Sunday afternoon. But more interesting will be watching Coach Thad's team try to fire up a MNF comeback.

Good luck this week.


  1. Wait a second; who's in first place?! One of the teams that didn't show up for the draft?


  2. Even worse is the fact that my all-star QB went undrafted and I picked him up the next day. But hey, what can I say? Oh yeah, the view is nice up here but I don't want to be here too long. You know the first place curse that we have. That's just what I need...
