It’s that time again.  Time to make the playoff predictions for the 2012 NFL season.  I’ve been putting it off and putting it off.  Any of about 25-27 teams could find their way in.  Of  course, only 12 can make it.  One of those teams I predict will be the Arizona Cardinals.  Yeah, I’m doing it.  I’m picking the Arizona Cardinals to win the west.  Call me a homer, whatever you want.  I have to stick by my team.  So, here we go.  My picks for the 2012 season may surprise some, but some of the usual suspects will appear here too.
