Five Bold NFL Predictions for 2012

5. Peyton Manning will be a New York Jet. Rex stated that he believes Peyton is the best QB in the NFL and Sanchez has done nothing to validate why the Jets picked him as high as they did. Andrew Luck, by all reports, is the single greatest prospect of all time and is a first ballot Hall of Famer even before signing his first pro contract. On a serious note, the public’s expectations associated with top draft picks coupled with the $28 million roster bonus due to Manning in March makes parting with Manning a no brainer for the Colts front office. If the Jets want to win a Super Bowl, they need to part ways with Sanchez and grab Manning.

4. Robert Griffin III will win Rookie of the Year. RGIII is nothing short of amazing. I understand why everyone believes Luck to be the best prospect since John Elway, I just don’t agree. I have yet to see Andrew Luck make a single big time, Elway type throw. Luck has great touch and finesse, but he has yet to uncork one and show that he has a canon for an arm. RGIII has and he also possesses world class speed. Luck will be excellent, but Griffin will be run away with the Rookie of the Year.

3. Tim Tebow will not be the starting quarterback for the Broncos. I love Tim Tebow, LOVE HIM, but I have never seen an NFL team look worse on offense than the Broncos have looked of late. Tebow can eat up a prevent defense, problem is, it’s doubtful he’ll ever see one again. Tebow ranked 32nd in passing yards and 28th in QB rating . Closing out the year, he threw 5 interceptions and fumbled 5 times in the last 3 games of the regular season (all losses). It appears as though teams have figured him out.

2. All will realize how over-rated the Ryan brothers are. The New York Jets, lead by the large mouthed Rex Ryan, put a defense on the field that ranked 20th in points allowed, while also giving up 111 yards a game on the ground. His equally annoying brother, Rob, of the Dallas Cowboys, called the defense that was 16th in points allowed and 23rd in passing yards allowed with 3,906. The Ryan twins aren’t as good as they say they are.

1. Jerry Jones will hire a GM. This one is the biggest stretch. However, if the Cowboys are to return to their early 90’s glory days, someone who is an accomplished talent evaluator needs to step in. I’ve said it before, professional sports makes brilliant businessmen dumb. Owner/GM combinations are often in place because of ego, as the only people who believe it can be successful are the people in the Owner/GM position. Jerry needs to realize this and bring someone in, fast, before they go the way of the Oakland Raiders.
