Jamison Hensley, formerly of The Baltimore Sun and currently of the world-wide leader (ESPN for those who don’t like jokes), shocked his hometown when he revealed his stunning prediction about the Ravens 2012 season. The University of Maryland grad wrote in his AFC North blog that he doesn’t see the Ravens making the postseason this year.
While I was the only one who didn’t have the Ravens reaching the playoffs for a fifth consecutive season (I know I’m going to be parking five miles away from the stadium on game days because of this), I can pass along some optimistic predictions for John Harbaugh, Joe Flacco and the gang. Baltimore was one of three AFC teams picked by the experts to reach the Super Bowl (sadly, none predicted a Super Bowl title). Brandt, Williamson, NFC East blogger Dan Graziano and NFC North blogger Kevin Seifert all tabbed the Ravens as AFC champions. Only the New England Patriots received more votes.
Good news for Jamison, because every writer and TV personality makes 100 bold predictions of their own, most people will likely never remember this one come January.
We will though.
