Bye Week: None until next week

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

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
Three of the Preds four drafted RBs are out for multiple weeks and there is a QB controversy brewing. But somehow they keep getting lucky and playing a low scoring team. Can that continue for a third week in a row?

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
It will all come together for the winless Bolts this week, as Tom Brady finally runs up the score and Chicago's D seals their first victory on MNF. Unless Peyton Manning can break through in Seattle and the Steelers look better on Sunday night...

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Coach Hoss looks to be finally replacing Big Ben at QB, but it's not easy for a team to overcome their first pick being suspended (then reinstated, then suspended again). FitzCorp is atop the league and looking strong despite 5 P's and 2 Q's. Look for it to go down the wire on MNF.

the HAW (-1) vs. The Comfy Chair
Coach HAW's regular season winning streak was halted at 9 games last week but he'll start a new one against the Chair in W3. Wes Welker's return won't be quite enough to offset some tough matchups.

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
The Brew Crew have struggled so far this season. I know it's early, but they are on pace to shatter our lowest team points in a season record (both total and average). Yikes. Things won't be as bad this week but the Renegades will still grab a much needed victory.

And the game of the week...

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
What a matchup this one is going to be. The 'Morons are technically at the top of the 3FL South but the Vipers have a better overall spot. All eyes will be on Brandon Marshall on MNF to see if he can finish the comeback for Coach Drew's team. What a way to end our first set of divisional games!

Good luck this week.
