And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: the start of the 2012 NFL League Year.
Farewell 2011, and all of your troubles–we never liked you that much anyway. Sure, some good things happened in 2011, especially the infusion of youth and fresh faces on a roster that badly needed new blood.
The results weren’t what the team was looking for, but the process was well underway towards a brighter future.
And when the clock strikes 4 p.m., that future will be ushered in. In no particular order, here is your guide to bright and shiny things that will magically appear:

In a month known for its inherent madness, the rest of the world has invented brackets to determine what is the “Best ____ Ever.”
Count the NFL as no exception, as they attempt to determine the greatest teams of all time, focusing largely on the Super Bowl winners.
Of course, teams like the ’98 Vikings (previously the greatest statistical offense of all time) and the ’07 Patriots (currently the greatest statistical offense of all time) are also included on the list, for those of you who don’t value Lombardi’s.
The contest is set up as a bracket, and fans are asked to pair down the pool of 64 to 32, 16, eight, four, two, and the eventual winner. The contest continues through the month of March.

Former Redskins great Sam Huff was recently recognized by the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Allstate Insurance Company as a “Hometown Hall of Famer” in his native Farmington, W. Va.
The program is designed to honor the hometown roots and contributions of football’s greatest players with ceremonies and plaque dedication events in their local communities.
Huff, a five-time Pro Bowl selection as linebacker for the New York Giants and Washington Redskins, was a high school standout in Farmington. The presentation was made on Monday afternoon by Mike Arcure, former manager of Huff’s high school football team.
The ceremony was attended by Huff and his family, along with close friends and teammates from his alma mater’s 1954 Mountaineer Sugar Bowl team.
The ceremony was heavily attended by members of the Farmington community, and deeply touched the football giant (via The Times West Virginian)
