Football betting fans will see the Cleveland debut of head coach Eric Mangini, who arrived after three up and down NFL gambling campaigns with the New York Jets. Mangini will be leading a football betting commodity that seems to have nowhere to go but up after a horrible 2008 season in which the Browns were near the bottom of the NFL gambling stat charts for both offense and defense.
Mangini’s first priority in the football betting preseason will be to sort out the quarterback position. Brady Quinn entered the football betting preseason as number one on the depth chart. Quinn is a 3 year pro out of Notre Dame who was Cleveland’s number one draft pick in 2007.
He has been a football betting bust so far as he has a career quarterback rating of 65.8 with a 2/2 touchdown/interception ratio. Quinn has been impressive so far in camp and Mangini is an offensive oriented coach who may be able to coax out the Golden Domers’ potential.
Derek Anderson will compete with Quinn for the starting position. Anderson is a 5 year pro out of Oregon State who has been the starter for Cleveland in the past two football betting campaigns. Anderson was solid in 2007 but regressed last year with a football betting quarterback rating of 66.5 with 9 touchdown passes and 8 interceptions.
His career football betting quarterback rating is 75.1. The Green Bay Packers will enter preseason action already under fire as they went from a NFC finalist in 2007 to a losing team in 2008 as Brett Favre was run out of town in an ugly separation last year that will long be remembered.
While Aaron Rodgers put up nice numbers last year he never led the Pack to a Favre like comeback. Green Bay’s real problem last year, however, was on defense and special teams and the Pack has new coordinators for both. Head coach Mike McCarthy will want to spend the preseason focusing on improvement in those areas.
