Week 3 Information

Bye Week: None until next week

The Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 3:

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs ray ray haw
The 'Morons are going to be in a tough spot if they get another loss and go 0-3 (0-2 in the division) this week. That shouldn't happen, as Chris Johnson can't have another 30+ point game. Can he?

Lightning (-1) vs. The Comfy Chair
The Lightning are predicted (by Yahoo!) to win big. We know how that goes. But unless Tony Romo gets his act together for a MNF comeback, the big purple Y might be right.

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Marauders
If I told you at the beginning of the year that when these two teams meet in week 3 the Stompers would be undefeated and leading the division and the Marauders would be winless, you would have laughed at me. That is, however, where we stand. And we may have more of the same...

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
Coach Coaldog is riding a winning streak that stretches all the way back to the end of last season. His 7 victories in a row puts him in the 3FL record books. The Vipers appear ready to end that streak, but who can pick against it (and the trophy holder) right now?

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Close game? Check. Four combined players on Monday night? Check. Tom Brady finally living up to expectations? We'll see. This is going to be a fun one to watch.

And the game of the week...

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The Renegades are better than their 0-2 record, and the Preds have been a bit lucky so far. Plus, the 3FL West could use a little evening up. The matchups are so close that either team could win, but you'll have to stay up late on Sunday to find out who does...

Good luck this week.
