And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 9:

Spiked Vipers (-1) vs. Marauders
This matchup features two division leaders headed in the opposite direction. The Vipers have won three straight and have jumped up to the top spot in the league. The Marauders have lost three straight and have fallen from the top spot down to number five. Those trends will continue this week.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
The 'Morons will start out ahead after Thursday night, but the Bolts have a lot of prime time players scheduled to surge to a comeback victory. Although, who can rule out another victory by Coach Drew? There is some magic surrounding him this year. How else do you explain his record and point total?

Yuengling Brewers (-1) vs. Predacons
The Brew Crew won with a prime time comeback two weeks ago but was on the wrong end of one last week. They dropped all the way down to second place overall (but are still our top scoring team). Meanwhile, how are the Preds at .500? Half of that luck runs out in this replay of last year's Superbowl.

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Well, that's one way to stop a losing streak. The Stompers hit the century mark and got their first win with authority. Can they keep it up against the Dumbbums? This game is probably the last hope for each of these teams and it will be a good one. The loser gets last place with only four weeks to go.

THE Haw (-1) vs. The Comfy Chair
It's a shame that the battle of our teams containing a "The" happens this week - when the Chair has a majority of its squad on a bye. The good news is that the byes are almost over. The bad news is that Christian Ponder and Cecil Shorts are in the starting lineup for Coach Skrabby. Go easy, Haw.

And the game of the week...

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
Both of these teams had much higher expectations for this season, but for the loser of this game it might mean the end of their playoff hopes. It will be close through the whole week and all come down to Monday night, when Coach Tim'A's beloved E-A-G-L-E-S and D.Jax fight for the Corporation. Can they survive Aaron Rodgers and the Renegades? Will this end in a tie? It's going to be that good.

Good luck this week.
