There were a lot of people who were disappointed to see Peyton Manning go to the Denver Broncos. But few were more disappointed that Carson Palmer. The online sportsbook experts were unsure how well Palmer would do as the quarterback of the Oakland Raiders and Palmer did struggle early on. But most people recognized that Palmer was thrown into a game after only being in Oakland for four days. His chances of success were extremely limited. When Manning went to Denver, Palmer's headlines were taken away and replace by Peyton Manning headlines.
The Raiders made more news when it took controversial quarterback Terrelle Pryor in the supplemental draft. Pryor has already made his intentions on being the starting quarterback in Oakland known. The online football betting
world is not sure who will be the starting quarterback in Oakland, but everyone agrees that things will certainly not be boring with the Raiders. Even after legendary team owner Al Davis had passed away, the Raiders are still making bizarre personnel moves.
When you look at the AFC West, it can be easy to dismiss the division as chaotic and weak. But there have been a lot of changes in the off-season that will make the AFC West competitive. It is possible that the AFC West could produce one of the AFC's wild card teams as well.
The team getting the most attention is the Broncos. But this team is more than just the new quarterback Peyton Manning. While former quarterback Tim Tebow was getting all of the accolades for the Broncos' success
last year, the Denver defense and special teams units were putting in huge performances. The pay per head service experts watch as the Denver defense held the team in the game while Tebow was throwing passes to wide open
receivers into the turf. Place kicker Matt Prater was making 57-yard field goals to tie games when Tebow couldn't move the ball. The Broncos are going to be dangerous with a real quarterback under center.
The Kansas City Chiefs seem poised to make vast improvements under new head coach Romeo Crennel. When Crennel took over as interim head coach last season, the team instantly improved. The Chiefs still have adangerous running game and expect to have running back Jamaal Charles healthy and ready to go. Do not be surprised to see the Chiefs challenging for the AFC West title in 2012.
A sportsbook review of the Raiders' situation shows a team that is really hard to read right now. The Raiders will have a punishing running game and an effective defense. But without knowing who is going to play quarterback, the fate of the Raiders remains up in the air. Palmer and Pryor are very different quarterbacks and the
Raiders need to make a decision soon to start building the proper offense.
The San Diego Chargers are a shell of what it used to be. The team clings to the duo of head coach Norv Turner and quarterback Philip Rivers in the hopes that some kind of magic will develop. If there hasn't been magic by now, then there will not be any magic in 2012.
