Try, try again: 2012 NFL season predictions

It's time once again for a feeble attempt at predicting the 2012 NFL season. My less-than-stellar track record with sports prognostication has become a bit of a running joke in these parts, but I refuse to be beaten. I am knowledgeable enough about the NFL that one of these years, I'm bound to nail it.

Will it be this year? Probably not.

Come then! Poor pigskin prognostication awaits!

Martin brings tears to Hall of Fame

CANTON, Ohio - The linemen led the way as they always do, accepting their inductions into the Pro Football Hall of Fame with an abundance of humility. Curtis Martin finished the evening by supplying plenty of tears.

The last of the six players to have their bronze busts unveiled Saturday night, Martin used the big stage to recall his rough life, his mother's pain and his life-long indifference to the game that allowed him to become famous.

'I don't necessarily have notes, so I'm going to just bare my soul,' Martin cautioned. 'So bear with me.'

Suspending Pro Bowl an option for NFL

NEW YORK - Have NFL fans seen the last of the Pro Bowl?

The game could be suspended next year, two people familiar with discussions said Thursday.

Commissioner Roger Goodell, among others, expressed concerns about the quality of play after January's game, and the league has been holding talks with the players' union about the future of the all-star game. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks were not being publicized.

Responding to an ESPN report that Goodell is 'strongly considering' suspending the game in 2013, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said: 'No determination has been made yet.'
