As you know, as most of you know by now, I’m an analogy waiting to happen when it comes down to the NFL football season.

How many times am I getting you guys pumped up talking about Aaron Rodgers? How many times am I comparing Eli Manning to things that guy do in the field of life with women.

As you all know, I’m an avid football fan.

I could care less about any other sport at all. I don’t watch any other sport; football is the only sport that I really enjoy and I really like.

So every year I make predictions.

Today there will be nothing about women, nothing about dating tips—unless of course you meet a woman who wants to talk football.

Today is all about trash talking, football talk, and everything else. I don’t want to see anything posted about your daily life. We are taking a break, because I believe the starting NFL season is a holiday and we need to break from our life and be men again.

Here are my predictions:

As you know, I’m a huge Jets fan—my father’s curse. I hate it; I wish I was a Giants fan. I would have won four Super Bowls and I wouldn’t be in misery every single year having to watch Mark Sanchez battle Tim Tebow.

So here’s my prediction. AFC East goes to the Patriots.

The NFC North. I can’t see the Ravens losing this year. I think the Steelers are getting old and I think they’re going to win the division. I think the Ravens will win that division again.

The Texans are going to roll. Everybody is talking about Jake Locker and the Titans—no. The Texans are too deep, too good, and too strong right now.

The AFC West is interesting. A lot of teams can win it. But Romeo Crennel is the guy that the Chiefs believe in as coach, and I like that. I think Peyton Hillis is going to have a big year, I think Jamal Charles is going to run like crazy and I think the Chiefs are going to win that division.

The wild card is interesting, you’ve got the Bills, you’ve got the Steelers, you’ve got the Titans, you’ve got the Jets, and you have the Raiders, the Broncos, and the Chargers. You’ve got a bunch of teams that can really stand to place as the wild card.

So I’m going to tell you I think the Steelers and I think the Bills are going to be the wild cards. Now that doesn’t mean that not one of those other teams can do it. I think the Broncos certainly can with Peyton Manning, but it just all depends.

But there’s going to be a big battle for that wild card, that wild card race here is going to be more fun than anything because you have all those teams that could potentially get in.

As far as winning the AFC goes—I can’t see any team beating the Patriots…except the Ravens. So I think it’s going to be a repeat of the AFC Championship again, I think we’re going to have the Ravens vs. Patriots, but I think this time the Patriots are going to be more definitive. I think this time the Patriots are actually going to be able to knock the Ravens out earlier and not rely on a Billy Cundiff missed field goal.

In the NFC, we’ve got the NFC East. And anyone of those teams except the Redskins can win it, but this year I’m going to put it out there. I think this year the Cowboys are going to win the division. Not because they beat the Giants the other night, I just think they’re ready. I think the Eagles will fight them to the very, very end, and I think the Giants will be there too, but I think in the end the Cowboys are going to win out.

The NFC North is going to be fun. I think the Lions are going to take a step backwards. I think the Bears would take Butler and Brandon Marshall are going to be very strong because remember last year, they were really strong and then Cutler went down.

But in the end, I think the Packers are going to be ridiculously good again, so I’m going to say right now that the Packers are going to win that division.

The NFC South is interesting. You’ve got everybody jumping on the Matt Ryan bandwagon. The guy is a great quarterback but he can’t win in the playoffs, I think this year is going to change everything.

Drew Brees is still there with New Orleans even though Sean Peyton is not. (Isn’t it funny that Sean Peyton was suspended by the NFL for a year, and then the the very next day he filed for divorce. He was home for approximately 24 hours and realized that there’s no chance in hell that he’s going to be able to stay with his wife on a daily basis and basically filed for divorce.)

But I digress.

The Saints will persevere still. Everybody is thinking the Panthers are going to make the run this year, I think Cam Newton takes a step backwards. The Buccaneers are a mess, they’ve got great, young talent, they’ve got an unproven coach—I’m going to pass on them.

So, I’m going to tell you in that division, I think the Falcons and the Saints are going to battle it until the very, very end and I think the loser of that division is going to make the wild card. So, I’m going to give the division to the Falcons this year, I just think they can pull it out.

The NFC West is a joke. You’ve got Seattle’s rookie quarterback, so I’m not buying them. They’ve got a great defense and they’ve got a bull for a running back.

But I think the 49ers are the team to beat and I think they’re going to win 13 games this year. The other two teams I could care less about, the Cardinals have no quarterback and the Rams are a complete mess, but Jeff Fisher knows what he’s doing, so watch out for them over the next couple of years.

So, let’s talk about the playoffs and the wild card. One of the wild cards are definitely going to the Eagles…though it could be the Giants, it could be the Bears, it could be the Lions, and it can be the Saints, but I’m going to go on a limb and I’m going to say that the Bears and the Saints are going to make the wild card.

The Giants and the Eagles are just going to miss out because those two teams, all three of those teams will beat each other up and all finish right around 10 and 6. As for the NFC champion, Green Bay is pissed. Aaron Rogers is the best quarterback by far and I believe that they’ve made enough changes in their defense to get to the Super Bowl.

So, my pick for the Super Bowl this year will be the Packers versus the Patriots.

Like I said, this is a debate today. We’re not talking about dating, relationships, or any of that other stuff, today we’re being men.

Today, we’re talking football.
