The Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 10:

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
You know you're in the midst of a disappointing season when you trot out Tyler Thigpen as the starting QB to try and shake things up. At least the Chair has an active player in every time slot from Thursday to Monday. You know, so they'll be a reason to watch...

Marauders (-1) vs. Rough Riders
Coach Bev just can't catch a break this year. But this might be the week for her to pick up a sneaky win against the red hot Marauders, especially if Big Ben ends up on the big bench. But wait - Coach Hoss' backup is J.Delhomme vs. Oakland. Oh, well.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Lightning
Both of these teams have the same record, but the 'Bums are averaging 15 more points per week than the Atmospheric Discharges of Electricity. All eyes will be on the four players in the Sunday night game. An Eli to Amani hookup could change everything.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Predacons
Remember just a few weeks ago when these two teams had matching records and were holding down the top two places in the standings? Well, a combined three weeks and five losses later we are looking at a little more urgency from both sides. FitzCorp can't lose four in a row...

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Coach haw's team has hit a rough patch, but they appear to be ready for a breakout game this week. Meanwhile, newly acquired Renegade A.Boldin will try to lead a MNF comeback in his first week with the team. With the up-and-down seasons for both of these two, can we really be surprised by the outcome?

And the game of the week...

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Both of these teams are riding four game winning streaks into this week. But whose will continue? It looks to be a close one, but the RBs and a capable (albiet rookie) backup QB will make the difference. Maybe.

Good luck this week!
