    2012 New Orleans Saints Odds & Preview

    2012 New Orleans Saints Betting Preview The NFL has handed out some stiff penalties to teams and players in the past, but nothing like what it's given out to the New Orleans Saints for the “bounty” program allegedly run by members of the coaching staff and defense.

    2012 Atlanta Falcons Odds & Preview

    2012 Atlanta Falcons Betting Preview For the first time in franchise history the Atlanta Falcons have made the playoffs two seasons in a row.

    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.....
