    2012 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Odds & Preview

    2012 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Betting Preview The Tampa Bay Buccaneers took a chance a couple of years ago on a young head coach and young quarterback, and they lost. Now, after a disastrous 2011 season, the coach is gone, replaced by former Rutgers HC Greg Schiano, although the QB is still there. Schiano's objective will be to coach up Josh Freeman a bit, su.....

    2012 Arizona Cardinals Odds and Preview

    2012 Arizona Cardinals Betting Preview We kind of figured the Arizona Cardinals would miss Kurt Warner, but now, after two seasons, the situation is getting serious. Arizona has a decent team surrounding the QB position, but it certainly hasn't gotten much help from that spot the last two years. And the Cardinals will go into this season without a clear-c.....

    2012 San Francisco 49ers Odds and Preview

    2012 San Francisco 49ers Betting Preview We knew the San Francisco 49ers, over recent seasons, had some talent; they just didn't have anybody who knew what to do with it. Until last year, apparently, when Coach Harbaugh, in his first season in charge, immediately led an underachieving San Francisco team to the brink of the Super Bowl. The 49ers hadn't eve.....

    2012 Seattle Seahawks Odds and Preview

    2012 Seattle Seahawks Betting Preview Two years ago the Seattle Seahawks, in their first season under Coach Carroll, finished 7-9 but made the playoffs. Last year, they went 7-9 again, but missed the playoffs by three games. While the records were the same, progress was made on both sides of the ball last year. But not satisfied with its QB play, and righ.....

    2012 St. Louis Rams Odds and Preview

    2012 St. Louis Rams Betting Preview The St. Louis Rams have won 15 games total over the last five seasons, and seven of those came in one season, 2010. They're also now on their fifth head coach since 2005, after dumping Coach Spagnuolo and bringing in former Oilers/Titans HC Jeff Fisher to see if he can do something with this crew. He'll have his hands f.....

    2012 Dallas Cowboys Odds and Preview

    2012 Dallas Cowboys Betting Preview The Dallas Cowboys have been one of the most talented teams in the league the last couple of seasons and still have managed to miss the playoff both years. Coach Garrett was supposed to have the answers to their problems, but Dallas is just 13-11 under him. So the Cowboys still have just one playoff victory since 1996. .....

    2012 Philadelphia Eagles Odds and Preview

    2012 Philadelphia Eagles Betting Preview The Coach Reid era in Philadelphia has been marked by disappointment, in that while the Eagles have had good teams for a long time they just haven't been able to get over the hump. Last year many thought Philly had a “dream team,” but most of the season was a minor nightmare. In the end, through a four-game los.....

    2012 New York Giants Odds and Preview

    2012 New York Giants Betting Preview The New York Giants don't set the world on fire during the regular season, but they apparently know how to win come playoff time. Last year NY sneaked into the postseason on the last Sunday, then went on one of those runs that eventually resulted in a second Super Bowl title under Coach Coughlin. This season the Gia.....

    2012 Washington Redskins Betting Preview After going 6-10 and 5-11 in their first two seasons under Coach Shanahan the Washington Redskins have now finished last in the NFC East four seasons in a row. And Coach Shanahan still hasn't won anything without that guy Elway playing quarterback. Now for this season Washington will apparently go with a rookie at .....

    2012 Oakland Raiders Odds and Preview

    2012 Oakland Raiders Betting Preview The Oakland Raiders had an excellent chance last year to break an eight-season playoff drought, sitting at 7-4 headed into the home stretch. But Oakland being Oakland, they lost four of their final five games, including the season finale at home vs. the Chargers, and missed out again on the postseason. Then, while you .....
