You always have those bold predictions that run through your head that you never tell anyone but then they come true! But you still can't tell people because they'll say, yea I'm sure you predicted that. So let's put our bold predictions in bold print so if some of them come true we can all say, "HAH! Told you I predicted that". So here are some things that will happen in 2012:

  • Peyton Manning will be suited up in different colors in 2012 
  • Peyton Manning will play in Super Bowl XLVII
  • Justin Blackmon will run a 4.59 at the combine
  • Melvin Ingram will have 10 sacks as a rookie
  • Morris Claiborne will lead the Bucs with 6 INT
  • The Carolina Panthers will win 11 games
  • The Atlanta Falcons will not make the Playoffs
  • Arian Foster will rush for 1,800 yards
  • Lamar Miller will have more rushing yards than Trent Richardson
  • Tim Tebow will make the Pro Bowl
  • The Jacksonville Jaguars will make the Playoffs
  • Tim Tebow will have 60% completion percentage
  • Jason Pierre-Paul will have 20 sacks
  • Calvin Johnson will score 20 TDs
  • Andy Dalton will throw 30 TDs
  • LeGarrette Blount will rush for 1,400 yards
  • Ray Lewis will not break 90 tackles
  • Julius Peppers will not have 10 sacks
  • Andrew Luck will have more INT than TDs
  • Josh Freeman will have a 90 QB rating
  • The Houston Texans will win 14 games
  • Jay Cutler will throw for more yards than Ben Roethlisberger
  • A QB will not win the MVP Award
  • Courtney Upshaw will have 115 tackles
  • Chad Ochocinco will make the Pro Bowl......Just kidding that's too bold
  • Jimmy Graham will score more TDs than Gronk
  • Gronk's new TD dance will be mummy-looking dance he pulled off at the club
  • Wes Welker will not have 100 catches
  • Oakland will fire yet another unfortunate head coach
  • Detroit will make it to the NFC Championship
Well those are 30 bold predictions for 2012. Peyton playing for the Patiriots is not a bold prediction, just a funny picture. Give me some of your predictions or just make comments on mine. Thanks for reading.
