NFL Week 7 Preview: Denver Broncos vs. Miami Dolphins

Denver Broncos vs. Miami Dolphins LinesSports Betting Overview
The thin, mile-high air is starting to get to the Denver Broncos. The team keeps hiring head coaches that have the same tendencies and make the same mistakes. When Josh McDaniels arrived in Denver, he immediately dismantled the team by alienating starting quarterback Jay Cutler and eventually moving Cutler to Chicago. Then McDaniels drafted quarterback Tim Tebow at least one round ahead of where Tebow should have been drafted. Kyle Orton came over from Chicago in the Cutler trade and became the starter. The Broncos were awful, so the team fired McDaniels after last season. When former Carolina Panthers head coach John Fox took the Denver job, he had just come off of a situation where he completely ruined the career of then-rookie quarterback Jimmy Clausen. Now Fox has created another quarterback fiasco in Denver.

The Miami Dolphins’ problem is a little more straightforward. The Dolphins are just a terrible football team. The cost per head Dolphins’ fans were wondering what the team was going to do when both running backs Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown were let go by the team.

The answer was former New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush. Bush was never a three-down, all-situation running back. But that is how the Dolphins are trying to use him, and it is decisions like that which have made the Miami Dolphins winless in the first six weeks of the NFL season.

Denver Broncos
The price per head sports fans in Denver finally get to see the Tim Tebow era begin as Tebow has officially been named the starter for the Broncos. But most people know that the quarterback is not the problem in Denver. Tim Tebow may come in and provide an initial spark to the Broncos, but Tebow cannot fix the horrible Denver offensive line. Nor can Tim Tebow affect the Denver defense which gives up the most points per game in the NFL. Tim Tebow has gone from being one of the least expected NFL picks in draft history to being the “starter in demand” for the Broncos’ fans. The football fans in Denver may be careful about getting what they wish for. While Tebow shows some enthusiasm and leadership skills, he is not the second coming of John Elway that Josh McDaniels thought Tebow would be.

Miami Dolphins
The Dolphins wanted to get rid of their wildcat formation and go to a more standard offensive set. For some reason, the Dolphins felt that it needed to make personnel changes to make that change. The Dolphins had a pretty good set of offensive players in running backs Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown. That would have been a good backfield for any standard NFL formation. What the Dolphins needed was a better offensive line. But now that the Dolphins have no running game or offensive line to speak of, the team is in trouble. When you throw in a defense that cannot stop the pass, then you have a team that is probably not going to win a lot of games this season.

The Bottom Line
Tim Tebow needs to settle in to a strong routine under center to avoid being a novelty. Every NFL player on the field will know that Tebow will look to run the ball inside the five yard line. Tebow needs to stay within the Broncos’ system if he is going to be successful. Playing the Miami Dolphins will make staying within the system easy for Tebow.
