Here are my 2012 NFL ‘Musical’ Predictions. I used only songs from my own music library. If you are unfamiliar with any of the music, check out the songs and broaden your musical horizons.
These views are my own, if they are inflammatory towards your favorite team or player, it IS intentional but all in good fun…except the Raider cracks!
So here is the 2012 NFL season as I see it! Come back after the season and we can re-hash and I will probably even have a playoff version!
Good luck to your favorite teams!
San Diego Chargers–Loving You Sunday Morning, The Scorpions
Bolts are my team win or lose. Let’s go with win, despite Norv Turner!
Denver Broncos -The Gambler, Kenny Rogers
Elway is gambling on Manning’s health…All In! Probably gonna be a good bet!!
Oakland Raiders–Living in the Past, Jethro Tull
Yeah we know you won….a long time ago…but you’ve been pretty bad since. Find a new argument Raider fan! Not that you have the fastest player…that’s tired as well!
Kansas City Chiefs-Castles Made of Sand, Jimi Hendrix
They are relying on Matt Cassel, that’s not a good thing for Chiefs fans.
Houston Texans– New Kid in Town, The Eagles
No more Manning in the division the South should be theirs for a year or two at least.
Tennessee Titans– Caught In the Middle, Ronnie James Dio
They wont be first, they wont be last, they wont be memorable, they’ll be caught in the middle.
Jacksonville Jaguars – Cat Scratch Fever, Ted Nugent
That’s what these cats are gonna give their fans not much else.
Indianapolis Colts-Upside Down, Jack Johnson
We’ve bee used to seeing them on top but should get used to seeing them on the bottom for awhile, definitely in 2012.
Baltimore Ravens–Hard to Handle, The Black Crowes
They may be hard enough to handle all the way to the Superbowl. D can’t do it all. Gonna rest on the shoulders, actually the arm, of Joe Flacco.
Pittsburgh Steelers-Steel Bars, Foo Fighters
Where Big Ben belongs? How long do you call a franchise classy when their star clearly is not. Apples don’t fall far from the tree. They will fight for the division and settle for a wildcard.
Cincinnati Bengals-Breaking the Law, Judas Priest
Yeah, we all know the Bengals offseason exploits. If they could focus all their criminal energy to the field of play they could be good…don’t see it though.
Cleveland Browns–I Am the Walrus, The Beatles
Not sure even Mike Holmgren can fix this mess especially not this year.
New England Patriots– Same Old Song & Dance, Aerosmith
Yep, they’re still here, still good, still got a shot at the Superbowl and adding to their dynasty.
New York Jets-Just the Two of Us, Grover Washington, Jr.
If Sanchez and Tebow do not make a music video arm in arm singing this song and sharing the backfield… 2012 will be a DISASTER in New York.
Buffalo Bills–Dream On, Aerosmith
Maybe another strong start but playoffs look like a dream.
Miami Dolphins-Bad to the Bone, George Thorogood & The Destroyers
Nobody likes bones in their fish and these fish just stink.
San Francisco 49’ers– Who Are You, The Who
This applies to the whole team but especially Alex Smith. Were they for real last year? We’ll look for them to be tough
Arizona Cardinals–Three Little Birds, Bob Marley
“Don’t worry, ‘Bout a Thing” Mostly mediocre division, nobody expects much. If they get any kind of QB play …”Every Little Thing Gonna Be Alright” Just not sure that will happen.
Seattle Seahawks–Just the Way You Are, Billy Joel
…Mediocre, and that’s the way they’ll be this year.
St. Louis Rams–Bad, Michael Jackson
Someone had to get this song why not the Rams, the shoe fits.
New Orleans Saints– Bounty Hunter, Molly Hatchet ..And Justice For All, Metallica Redemption Song, Bob Marley
Bounty Hunter…they did the crime!
…And Justice For All…They are paying the price
Redemption Song…They proclaim their innocence.
They still have LOTS of offense and I see them outscoring teams in the regular season.
Atlanta Falcons–Devil Went Down to Georgia, Charlie Daniels
Seems like he only shows up in the playoffs though, unlike the rest of the team. Maybe their year to break the playoff bug with the Saints down but I still see them as a wildcard.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Sunday Bloody Sunday, U2
Tampa fans should be more worried about the Rays catching the Yankees, cause I dont see the Bucs doing much in 2012. Sundays could be tough.
Carolina Panthers–Things Can Only Get Better, Howard Jones
With Cam Newton a year older Carolina fans have got to hope this is true.
Green Bay Packers-Run With the Pack, Bad Company
It would be a good bet to run with the ‘Pack.’
Detroit Lions-Welcome to the Jungle, Guns N Roses
Who woulda thought the Lions would be players in the NFL watch out for em!
Chicago Bears–Blowin in the Wind, Joan Baez
In a division with GB & Det…their hopes like their great city are in the wind.
Minnesota Vikings–Outshined, Soundgarden
Looking California but Feeling Minnesota…gonna be a long year.
New York Giants–LimELIght, Rush
Yes Eli has 2 SB’s but in SD we remember his snively limp wristed attempt to hold the Bolt jersey on draft day. Giants will be good but hunted! Better be ready for everyone’s best shot.
Dallas Cowboys–Where Have all the Good Times Gone, Van Halen
America’s Team No More….never was as far as I am concerned although they have made some serious NFL history in their heyday.
Philadelphia Eagles–Dog Eat Dog, AC/DC
Oops did I go there? Good things happen to good people and bad things… to Vick!
Washington Redskins–Waiting on a Friend, Rolling Stones
If and when RGIII is ready the ‘Skins will be ready

Hwy Annie…So ready for the Chargers…just not sure what to really expect!
