I know I said players, but these two teams were just too hard to pass up. No one has stockpiled more negative press in 2012 than the Saints.
Of course the bounty scandal would have clearly been enough to make this list, but to top it all off, there's the massive fallout from the suspensions.
The Saints will lose their head coach for the season and a few players are now going through very messy, very public legal battles with Goodell and the rest of the NFL front office.
There's also the matter of the team's unwillingness to sign their franchise player (and the man who helped bring life back to the city of New Orleans) to a long-term commitment.
The contract situation of Drew Brees has made the Saints' management look absolutely foolish. Brees is asking no more than he deserves and yet New Orleans isn't willing to spend the money, even at a time when they need their leader most.
If the Saints can get a deal done with Brees, it will take some of the load off this awful offseason, but the stain of "bounty-gate" will remain for years to come.
