Big spending, subpar results

I am surprised that Clayton had enough sense to figure this out!

************************************************** *******
The 2012 season was proof that money doesn't buy championships in the NFL.

Based on my numbers, the top seven spending teams in 2012 didn't make the playoffs. It's understandable the New Orleans Saints fell short. Head coach Sean Payton, assistant head coach Joe Vitt and general manager Mickey Loomis were suspended because of the bounty scandal.

Thanks to Drew Brees' contract and the addition of three free-agent linebackers, including Curtis Lofton, the Saints led the league with a $167 million payroll. Thrown off by the loss of their front-office leaders, the Saints finished 7-9.
