Why the New Orleans Saints Will Win 2012 Super Bowl and Other NFL Projections

Looks like the lockout is about to end. Thank God.

This will likely save millions of American men from having to spend their Sunday afternoons at Bed, Bath and Beyond with their wives before attending baby showers and christenings.

It will also likely save the ER rooms of America from being over-flowed with injuries occurring from domestic disputes, from all over America's heartland.

So, though we all may be deprived of a 2011 NBA season, new ridiculous Blake Griffin dunks and another chance to see LeBron fall flat on his imaginary crown, at least we have our NFL.

I don't like to be a braggart, so let me just humbly state that last preseason, I predicted the Packers would win the Super Bowl.

And, thanks to one Mr. Wynn, I took home a nice payday.

That money has long since been spent, and it's time to earn another payday in 2011-12.

This season has variables that we haven't seen in seasons past.

For one, we don't know where over 500 free agents will land.

Secondly, there's a whole slew of new coaches and new starting QBs who have yet to get in any reps with their teams.

Thirdly, the rookies have yet to take a single snap and, depending on how long it takes them to get their contracts signed, many of them may have little to no impact on their teams this season.

Taking all that into account, and all the other impossible-to-quantify variables, I'm laying forth, for you, projections for the 2011-12 season.

If you want to take these projections to Vegas, be my guest. (Please send 10 percent of your winnings to Bleacher Report, care of J. Matthew Nespoli.)

However, if you lose, well...let me state, for the record, gambling is illegal, and I do not endorse it.

Without further ado, here are my NFL projections for 2011-12:
