2012-13 NFL Season Predictions

All the preseason games have been played.  The seemingly never-ending wave of player cuts have finally ended, and the scraps have been picked off the heap.  Al Michaels has perfected his "Out with a ..." voice.  Bob Costas has saddled his high horse and is ready to ride again.  Frank Caliendo is...well, Frank's doing something with his life now.  Not sure what that is.  Wang has sharpened his homer tendencies to a fine point.  Gregg Williams is banging Thai hookers and competing in underground fight competitions abroad.  I'm still working on my British accent and fighting to make myself believe 'The Dark Knight Rises' wasn't as disappointing as I thought.

So, here's some preseason predictions sure to blow up in my face.  And let's throw in some of the greatest hits of the 80s.  You know, for the shit of it.  (Aside: Why aren't there exclusive 80s stations on terrestrial radio?  Jesus Christ, you'd make a fucking mint off that shit.  There was enough versatility in the 80s.  Quality versatility, at that.)

Ballsy. But if Tampa wins ten games this year, I'll eat my own shoe. And I'm pretty sure it has poo on it.
