Football gambling fans can trace the drama directly to new head coach Josh McDaniels, who has done nothing to impress anyone associated with NFL betting. McDaniels is only 32 and has no football gambling experience as a head coach and it took just a few hours for his lack of polish to show.
His first move as Denver coach was to publicly express the desire for New England quarterback Matt Cassel to arrive in the Mile High City for the 2009 NFL betting campaign.
Cassel played well for the Patriots last year in place of the injured Tom Brady, but Denver already had a fine quarterback in Jay Cutler, who put up better numbers last football gambling season than Cassel. In fact it was Cutler that kept Denver in the post season football gambling chase until the final weekend of the season.
Yet McDaniels seemed to go out of his way to alienate the quarterback, who demanded a trade, (and got it to Chicago). The real football gambling problem in Denver is their defense, which ranked 29th last year and collapsed down the stretch. In the final 3 games of the 2008 football gambling season Denver allowed 30, 30, and 52 points.
The 52 was put up by the San Diego Chargers in the final game of the football gambling season with the AFC west division title at stake, in an embarrassing display of football that cost head coach Mike Shanahan his job. Now the Broncos have poured gasoline on the fire with Kyle Orton replacing Cutler as quarterback.
Orton threw for 2972 yards and 18 touchdowns last year compared to Cutler, who threw for over 4500 yards and 25 touchdowns. Orton has had a spotty and inconsistent football gambling career and cannot be considered Cutler’s equal.
Denver owner Pat Bowlen could make a solid case in getting rid of Shanahan as his regime had turned stale. But McDaniels already looks like a major liability and mistake.
