And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 3:

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Marauders
OK, I'll start the week with a reach. Why am I picking the winless Renegades over the undefeated Marauders? I have no idea. But at some point Aaron Rodgers is going to play a game to his #1 pick potential, right? Why not this week? But this pick might change depending on which team forgets to adjust their lineup and remove the red "O" before tonight's game.

Spiked Vipers (-1) vs. THE Haw
I don't see the Vipers losing a game anytime soon. Even against their mentor and his bunch of Giants. Eight of their eighteen play after eight p.m. this week, so that might be some fun watching and smack talking. For one of them.

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
The 'Bums are replacing their QB this week to take advantage of a game against the Browns. He should hope that strategy doesn't backfire against Tom Brady and the Chair. This one will be close until Monday night, but not so much after then.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Predacons
After looking passable in week one, Jay Cutler put up a goose egg for the Preds last week. And the rest of the team didn't do much better - their 30 point total was the lowest for Coach Sinkerbeam since season 1. The 'Morons will look for their Defense to use MNF to take this game and a commanding lead in the South Division. Although they might not even need it.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
The Stompers have started out the season a little unlucky and it doesn't help that Matthew Stafford is underperforming. It looks like he may be sitting out this week to make room for Joe Flacco (what?) as one of four combined players on Sunday night. Should be an exciting one, right down to the last blow of a replacement ref's whistle.

And the game of the week...

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
The Brew Crew are rolling along this season after almost one time changing their lineup from the auto picks. FitzCorp can't get seem to catch a break, scoring a bunch of points but entering the week without a win. This matchup is even, but the corporation is early week heavy while the Brewers have more players in the later prime time games. It will be gut wrenching. Especially if their streaks continue.

Good luck this week.
