The New Orleans Saints almost were so close to making a deep run in the playoffs last year, but came up short. This season, the Saints had the potential to make another serious run, despite the bounty scandal.
The Saints had the majority of their team returning for 2012, even adding some pieces, like Brodrick Bunkley and Curtis Lofton, to strengthen their roster.
