Football Betting Chiefs Preseason Roster Highlights

Football betting on the Kansas City Chiefs this year will be handicapping a team against the football odds with a lot of changes and also a lot of potential.

Football betting fans will see that the Chiefs have a new front office, coach, quarterback, and attitude this year when evaluating the football odds. Head coach Todd Haley has arrived for the 2009 football betting season from the Arizona Cardinals, where he was offensive coordinator and an integral part of their success last year against the football odds when they made it all the way to the super bowl.

New general manager Scott Pioli arrives from the New England Patriots where he had the football betting reputation as a player personnel guru.  His first move was to trade for quarterback Matt Cassel, who was the starting quarterback for the Pats last football betting season after Tom Brady went down.

Cassel is a 5 year pro out of USC that finished the 2008 football betting season with 3693 yards passing and a 21/11 touchdown/interception ratio with an 89.4 quarterback rating.

Pioli wasted no time in locking up Cassel with a long term deal worth $63 million over 6 years which clearly established him as the Chiefs quarterback of the present and the future.

After starting off rather slow Cassel improved as the 2008 football betting season went on and he finished the final 3 games of the season with a quarterback rating of over 100 in each of those games during the stretch run towards the playoffs.

Even though New England failed to make the football betting post season all experts agreed that Cassel was not the blame and that he performed well as well as made himself a valuable commodity that was desired buy other teams.

Cassel is likely to get more playing time in the preseason than a starter normally would as he will need to get acclimated to his new teammates and offensive playbook.  Brodie Croyle, a 4 year pro from Alabama, is currently expected to back up Cassel at quarterback.

In his previous 3 football betting seasons in KC he compiled a career quarterback rating of 68 with a 6/8 touchdown/interception ratio.
