12 for 12: A dozen 2012 Predictions

Keith Appling: One-on-One

Predictions. Everyone has them, and rarely do people prognosticate correctly. As the saying goes, that’s why they play the game.

Feel free to post your answers or fill in your “other” selection in the comment box. The predictions are listed in chronological order and, just for clarity, many of the football ones take into account likely early NFL departures.
