If you're a football fan like myself, then you're absolutely ecstatic about the return of football. SInce the beginning of February I've had this week circled on my calendar and it;s finally returned to mama!As always,  the beginning of a new season means every analyst and expert gives us their rundown of how the teams will season at the beginning of each season. It's only fair that I do the same thing, or my namesake is in huge jeopardy! Of course there are a couple of surprise picks in my predictions, but that's what the NFL is all about- surprises.Here's my predictions for the 2012 NFL season. Feel free to tell me how genius I am with my picks- or how idiotic they sound if you disagree.
