AFC North Headline Of The Day...

Oh, Mike Tomlin is picking the Ravens, is he?

I don't even know how this is a story.

Big effing deal.

Hell, I'll go you one better and say that the Bangles will win it.

Honestly, making predictions like that is the biggest joke. Just ask Anthony Smith.

I've said some of the most random shit in the past and sometimes I've been right, which naturally gives me some type of bragging right, and sometimes I've been wrong, which naturally gives everyone else the right to point and laugh (which, let's be honest, they're doing anyway).

Some people love doing this. They may not even make statements as predictions, but when they come true, they like to revel in the credit. I can't say I've never done it. But I can at least recognize how lame it is.

And isn't that really what life is about? Recognizing your own lameness?

Bottom line - Anyone can throw random guesses out there. But in the end, it's always a roll of the dice.

Let him pick the Ravens. The Steelers are defending Super Bowl champs. And besides, they just beat the Ravens THREE times in one season. Wasn't that an NFL first?

The Ravens, much as it pains me to say, are a good rival. Unlike some other members of the AFC North who haven't been pulling their weight recently. Their fans may be some of the most miserable specimens of human beings in recent history. But that doesn't mean they can't play football.

So maybe Tomlin will be right, but at this point, it's all speculation.

And if his 2008 pick is any indication, I wouldn't rely on Tomlin to predict the division champ...

That said, let me go back to something I mentioned this morning...
