NFL Season - Denver Broncos, how can they do this year?

The Denver Broncos were 6-0 after new head coach, Josh McDaniel and their defense looked like it was a reincarnation of the ‘85 Bears.

The Denver Broncos started out last season with such promise. The money kept on NFL betting with Denver Broncos for Super Bowl Odds was pretty good. Though, everything was going well in the Mile High City, there were few injury concerns which spoiled the chain.

The offenses were dried up and the defense started to bend. Before they knew it, a 6-0 start had tapered off 2-6 in a limp to the finish the line. The promising football odds 2009 season of Denver has ended in the same way they had in mediocrity.

And as did the previous off-season, the Broncos dealt yet another pro bowl player away. Last year was Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall this year. The Broncos drafted to replace Marshall, but it’s very difficult to replace one of the largest, quickest and most productive wide receivers in the game. Those who are evaluating the results now see two players disappeared and one coach with an 8-8 career record remaining.

However, optimism still prevailed in training camp and the Broncos odds were again supervised by the NFL experts. Still, subsequent injuries to second-year running back Knowshon Moreno and sacks leader Elvis Dumervil have left the Broncos scrambling. Sports betting now features the team as a 50/1 Super Bowl betting longshot, hardly the place many people thought they’d be after last season’s 6-0 start.

So how can they do this year? Smart money is about adjustments and trial and error. In other words, with Denver missing key players don’t be surprised if they tank it early and play the youngsters, trying to get a top draft pick.
