The Atlanta Falcons have a 2012 schedule now, which means it's high time to go through the whole thing and pick the winner of each game. All time that's been spent between last night and now on doing anything but picking the winners of football games that won't be played for months: this time was wasted.

What follows is myself makin' picks in a thinkin' attic, summoning, as always, Jerry Glanville and Bobby Petrino, among others. Make us all look like champions by subscribing:

Ten wins will do, won't it? Not bad for a team with two new coordinators and approximately one or so new players, yes?

This division's a tough one to call, with three teams making major changes, whether they wanted to or not and the other starting a second-year quarterback. But if there's one thing I'm good at, it's predicting how many games the Falcons will win in a year. If I'm off by more than a game this year, it'll be the first time in like six or seven years that I've been that far off. Not even bragging. I mean, I said it's the only thing I'm good at. Whatever. Playoffs, here we come.
