Denver Post reporter Mike Klis, who covers the Broncos and the NFL, looks into his crystal football and projects some surprises and disappointments for the 2012 season.
He also makes a Super Bowl pick.
Take any NFL defense you want.
Arian Foster and all the running backs, Larry Fitzgerald and every wide receiver — they're yours. I'll throw in all the blockers, tacklers and kickers.
When it comes to looking ahead to a new NFL season, all I need is the head coach and quarterback. And I can figure it out from there.
As part of his surprises, Klis thinks the Jets/Tim Tebow pairing has a real chance of working.
But in the end, Klis goes with the Patriots vs. Packers in the Super Bowl.
Belichick is the NFL's best coach and Brady is a top-five quarterback. Rodgers is the league's best quarterback and McCarthy is a top-five coach.
These teams are a bit soft on defense. But they're not the Bears.
The Pats and Pack should meet in Super Bowl XLVII at the Louisiana Superdome.
