The Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 2:

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Who was that team? After being renamed for '09 the Stompers are off to a quick start - winning the week even with Santonio on the bench. And with Peyton's Colts playing on MNF we just might see a comeback and 2-0 start for Coach Bev.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Sure, the Bolts still have some RB injury issues, but the matchups work out in their favor this week. This one will likely come down to the starting QBs. Is it too soon to demote Cutler? We'll see.

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Which QB will live up to the projections? Which WR corps will drop more passes? But most importantly, will Coach Val be able to stay up on Sunday night to see which team's final player brings home the win?

Predacons (-1) vs. The Comfy Chair
So that's why the Preds picked Adrian Peterson with the first overall draft selection - and this week he gets to play the Lions. But the Chair raised a few eyebrows with their upset victory in week one and can't be counted out when Tony Romo and the Steelers D are on the field.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
First the trade, then the injury - and now the Corps and the Eagles may have to look elsewhere for some week two help. But Eli isn't a bad backup to have. Still, the Vipers may steal this one if Drew Brees continues tying 3FL records.

And the game of the week...

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
These two teams are family rivals, division rivals and former SuperBowl opponents. The slight edge goes to the 'Bums and their six game winning streak. What a great matchup so early in the season - just wait until we see it again in week 12...

Good luck this week.
