Online Sportsbook - KC Chiefs Notes

Online sportsbook fans will see a new look from the Kansas City Chiefs which could translate into far different sportsbook handicapping variables.

Online sportsbook fans should forget all about last season’s version of the Chiefs as the changes start at the very top and go deep into the roster for this sportsbook online season.  The online sportsbook changes began with new general manager Scott Pioli, who then hired Todd Haley as head coach.

Pioli was an important man in the front office of the New England Patriots and the Chiefs hoped that his winning background there would translate into sustained sportsbook online success.  Pioli went straight to his New England roots by acquiring a new quarterback for the online sportsbook season.

Matt Cassel quarterbacked the Patriots last year in place of the injured Tom Brady and led them to an 11-5 straight up record and a near miss for the online sportsbook playoffs.  Cassel completed 63.4% of his passes for 3693 yards and an 89.4 quarterback rating with a 21/11 TD/INT ratio.

Cassel immediately moved to the front of the depth chart over Brodie Croyle and Tyler Thigpen.  One change that did not take place on offense was the much anticipated departure of running back Larry Johnson.  Johnson ran for 874 yards and a 4.5 yards per carry average last online sportsbook season.

Johnson was quite vocal about wanting out of KC for the upcoming online sportsbook campaign but the Chiefs were not able to shop him successfully and are stuck with him for now.  Johnson does have a nice 4.5 yards per carry career average but has 7 years of heavy online sportsbook tread wear and doesn’t like to block.

Tight end Tony Gonzalez did depart after a stellar career with the Chiefs as he will spend the 2009 online sportsbook season with the Atlanta Falcons.  Brad Cottam will replace Gonzalez.

Last year he had 7 catches for 63 yards.  On defense Zach Thomas arrives from Dallas.  Thomas was a long time Miami Dolphin linebacker who will play his 14th NFL season in 2009.  He had 94 tackles last year for the Cowboys. has everything NFL.
