And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 7:

Misfits, Inc. (-1) vs. Stiletto Stompers
This one might get ugly. Romo and Peterson just might outscore the Stompers by themselves. At least there will be a reason to watch football on Sunday night.

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. THE Haw
If the playoffs started this weekend, these two would go head-to-head in the first round. We're still a little early for that kind of talk, but this one will have the feel of a playoff game. Throw the records out the window. It may end up in a tie.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
The Preds are clinging to the lead in the West division by the tip of a fingernail. They'll need to come up big against the Chair to keep out in front of the 'Bums. The Chair look to be slight underdogs, but with Aaron Rodgers behind center anything can happen.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Peyton Manning has the 'Bums flying high this year. Half of the time, anyway. Last week Coach Coaldog's team earned a victory, but they would have lost to any of the other 10 teams in the league. I'm guessing that means they're due for another 100+ point week.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Lighting
Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham are on a bye. If there ever was a week to sneak a win against the Bolts, this is it. The Brew Crew will need contributions from the whole roster but they'll have a great opportunity to take down our current league leader.

And the games of the week...

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Hey, can you two quick hit the waiver wire and start some players who actually have a game and/or who are not injured? Or is that on purpose to make it more difficult for league voting and prognostication? I've flipped a coin. You should too.

Good luck this week.
