Predictification - 2013 NFL Season Preview

Manning makes his return to Indianapolis this season. Will this season also see him return to the Super Bowl? - Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Predicting the NFL action before it happens isn't easy... unless you're a Predictificationist like me. Sit back, relax and know that you've come to the right place.

2012 REGULAR SEASON: 164-91*-1 (.643)

PLAYOFFS: 7-3 (.700)

SUPER BOWL: 1-0 (1.000)

COLTS PREDICTIONS: 13-4 (.765)

Life isn't easy for a Predictificationist - especially during this NFL offseason. After I correctly predicted the Baltimore Ravens as Super Bowl champions (not to mention predicting the Patriots and Falcons losses in the Conference Championships) before the season started last August my email, twitter and cell phone have been ringing off the hook! (yes, I'm aware that email and twitter don't 'ring') It's because of superior Predictification powers that I've been buried in questions all offseason:

"Who are the Colts going to sign, Nick?"

"Who are the Colts going to draft, Rags?"

"Which team will win the Super Bowl this year, Predictificationist?

"Hey, can you give me the winning PowerBall numbers?"

I guess I should have seen it coming (I am a Predictificationist after all).

To be honest, there is a part of me wanted to simply drop the mic and walk off stage.


I mean could it get any better? I need to remind you (as I did last year), the power of these predictions often cause people to lash out. This isn't a bad thingt - heck, even encouraged. Do you know how many people mocked my Ravens pick last year? Look at the comments section for a good laugh (TY46, LuckSCI12, Bruce_Wayne, SpanishColtsFan, ColtsFan1345, profootballfanatic, ohsnap12, and James Busch... I've got a video for you!). Some people can't handle the power of Predictification.

But, alas, I've decided to share my gift with you for another season. You're welcome.

So, there you have it. Peyton Manning will win his second ring and beat Andrew Luck, Tom Brady and Jim Harbaugh in the process. Couldn't get much better than that, could it? (Well, for Peyton Manning at least)

I'm sure that you are all much smarter (since you've been reading my articles) this year and won't say ANYTHING about my spotless predictions.... or will you?

Be on the lookout for the article next week where I will go into detail on my predicted 9-7 season for the Colts, including projections for Andrew Luck for year two. It will be amazing (of course).
