that's very stupid. he reminds me of a rookie RB who missed a lot of preseason snaps and was already a little behind from missing a lot of TC.

he is coming into his own and the Giants game showed what he is truly capable of when he goes out and just plays football. all season he has been thinking too much, been a little tentative at times in hitting the hole, while in others he was to impatient and just running into the backs of his lineman before his cutback lanes were opened.

all he needed was a little time to get his mind right and we all saw the dividends of that. he is hitting his stride at the perfect time too. with a playoff push underway we need him at his best.

Oh, I get it.
I'm going to show you how I'm not what you said I am.
Here we go...
Moreno is almost as good as Adrain Peterson. He will eventually break Emmit Smith record for TD's.
This season, he will take Denver to the SB and be the MVP, not only of the SB but ROY and MVP of the league.

He will be the first back in history to rush for 2000 yards without having a 100-yard game in his first 11 games in the NFL.

Moreno is truly one of the best back in NFL history.

Ok. Hopefully I'm not longer retarded now.
I don't know.
Am I still retarded, dude?
Hey, I really, really, really want your approval!

He got my vote. He had a good solid productive game. But it's also true that during our four game skid, he was virtually invisible. Bottom line, we need the guy PRODUCING if we want to win games. The running game is very important to the type of offense that McDaniels is running - not to mention ANY NFL team.

He's steadily improving. Can't wait to see his full potential.

In Oct. he had a 3.7 Yrd avg. with 0 TD's and 10 1st downs.
In Nov. he had a 5.0 Yrd avg. with 2 TD's and 19 1st downs.

He's also getting better the more carries he gets.
1st 10 attempts he's avg. 4.2 yrds.
10-20 attempts he's avg. 4.4 yrds.
20-30 attempts he's avg. 5.5 (but this is a small sample of 2 attempts)

Gotta like these young leggs.

On the flip side his rec. yrds. are dropping from 11 yrd ave. in sept. to 4 yrds now. And he's dropping some now which I can't even find a stat for that but I remember the drop last game when he seemed to hear footsteps.

I don't see a problem with his blocking. All in all he's making very good strides.

Like some posters have indicated -- McDaniels needs to design the offense around Moreno.

Just get Moreno the ball in space -- and let him do the rest.

He averaged TEN yards a carry against San Diego.

He averaged over 5 yards a carry for 97 yards against Washington.


So, those two facts alone render your assumption worthless. I'm saying "assumption," because there's no way you could actually watch the games and come away with these takes. You must just look at stats and post based on what you read in the paper.

As for the two losses where his totals weren't contributory, it's tough to contribute when you get 5 carries on a day.... and your team is playing from behind all afternoon.

Prater didn't have huge days against Pittsburgh or Baltimore, either.

Does that mean he's a ****ty kicker, or maybe that he needs to actually get the attempts to put up a good statistical day?

I found it interesting because of the similarities in the stats through 11 weeks of the season. I also found it interesting that in both RB's rookie years, they played dallas, washington, New England and Philly. Just wierd little coincidences.

Broncos' Moreno voted Week 12 Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week

Voters on NFL.com have made their choice. Running back Knowshon Moreno of the Denver Broncos is the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week for games played on Nov. 26-30.

Moreno rushed 19 times for 88 yards and one touchdown in Denver's 26-6 win over the New York Giants on Thanksgiving.

Moreno was selected from among five finalists through fan votes on NFL.com/rookies. The other finalists were wide receivers Kenny Britt of the Tennessee Titans and Percy Harvin of the Minnesota Vikings, linebacker Paul Kruger of the Baltimore Ravens and punt/kick returner LaRod Stephens-Howling of the Arizona Cardinals.

Sanchez and Knowshon are the only three time winners this year. :thanku:

I would agree, he's going to need to start scoring a lot more TDs though. He has 3 rushing and 1 receiving on the year. Compare that to Harvin's 5 receiving and 2 KO returns and he's still in the mix, but definitely not in 1st place.

I could definitely see Knowshon winning if he breaks 1200 APY and scores 4 or 5 more TDs as long as Harvin doesn't keep pace.

All-in-all a pretty weak offensive rookie class as far as superstar performances are concerned.

If we can't run for 140 yrds against chiefs then we have a ton of work to do. We should be able to get Moreno 100, and Buck like 30-40. What are they ranked like 29th or something like that?

Time for Broncos to get nasty, put a hat on someone, lower some shoulders and push the Chiefs around.

Yeah but I did say i thought 1200 was the highest it could go. IMO its a parabolic bubble caused by india buying a huge amount from the world bank. Like in the metric tons level. Them increasing there reserves is the only reason for the spike.

IMO its a parabolic bubble just like 140 dollar a barrel oil BAJA. Just so you know I decided to sell all my gold. Hell I bought some of it at 300 and ounce, the rest at like 800 so I thinks its a smart move.

Like I said though only do it if you have an investment you think better. Never just turn the gold back into dollars and spend. You know unless you planned on using it for something like that to begin with etc.

I am going to use it add to some other money I have saved and buy like 2 acres in either La Cresta or Alpine, or maybe just a nice house in Murrietta. I think its time to get ready because there is a nother wave of forclosures on the horizon.

You got me though, I didn't anticipate India buying all the gold up. They do use more then any other country and decided to shed some us dollars and that really moved the price of gold.

The good news is it moved it so far other countries may be leery of doing the same thing.

Read up on Parabolic bubbles, they are very interesting. Your pretty smart, even though we disagree a lot, so you probably already have heard of them.

They are very hard to predict until its too late, but I really see this being one.

marshon lynch, lawrence maroney etc the list goes on and on. "he's a beast i watched him in college" blah blah
hes solid and may make a probowl if the rb's in front of him decline or cant play.
if he was all that he would have showed us a couple of long long td runs by now.

Moreno getting better, I don't think he's peaked yet. I like how he plays, seems to like contact. His fumbles IMO weren't because of bad technique, he just needs to keep covering ball like he does and I think he hits a stretch of no fumbles.

I think he could be a really good back, but probably never the home run hitter you crave.

Moreno will have a great end of season, score 4 more times, add another 3-400 yrds and win offensive rookie of the yr.

He's won rookie of the week 3 times now so people obviously like the guy. He must be getting some votes outside rocky mountain area. Maybe his popularity from his area he went to college has carried over.

BlaK-Argentina
12-05-2009, 09:04 AM
I really don't know what people expect of him. He missed most of TC, all of the preseason and has played very well so far. He's a rookie, remember? He's very young and will get even better. Probably a lot better. I'm sure he'll be a top RB next year.

The ridiculous expectations for a high pick need to be lowered some. You can't expect a player to be an all time great after a couple of games just because he was picked high. Moreno has been a key ingredient in every win this year.

I don't care what you think of my opinion. Thinking that he should have long TD runs by now because he is a high draft pick is just dumb. He has had 6 games of 75 or more yards. That shows consistency. Him not breaking the long run means that he is moving the chains, getting solid yardage on his runs, and setting up the next down well.

Would you rather have Tatum bells -2,1,0,2,-1,60,0,2,-1 rushing day? Besides, it has only been recently that McD has called more plays to get him on the edge. He seemed to run exclusively up the middle whenever he was in earlier in the season. That made it hard for him to get some of the longer runs he has gotten in the last couple weeks.

12-06-2009, 08:01 AM
Sure you plan for your first round pick to be a stud, but in the end they just need to be solid NFL starters. You get 2-3 of those each yr, and the every couple yrs get lucky on a star player like Marshall/Doom etc and you will have a very good team.

I'm not sure Moreno has the skill set to dominate a game. I'm not sure Broncos thought he did either. I think they thought he would be a 300 carry a yr guy, avg over 4 yrds, score 10tds, and be consistent doing it type player.

Maybe that it to high for a player like that. You know a 1200 a yr guy, not a 1600 a yr stud etc. But really each yr is different, you look at the board and take the players you think will be good NFL players.

In some yrs Moreno might have been a late first, 2nd rounder, in other yrs he goes high etc. Taylor Mays probably would have been a high first round pick last yr, but this yr he could drop.

As fans we expect the 1st rounder to be better then 2nd rounder to be better then 3rd rounder. But in reality it doesn't matter as long as you find good players.

Moreno will been a stud for us for a long time. Leads the league in Rushing and combinedl yards for rookies. That isn't too shabby As for his fumbles...."the greatest back of them all" Adrain Peterson (Sarcasm) has lost 5 of the 6 fumbles he has made this season. Moreno? He is now carrying that rock like it's his firstborn! And his blocking is exceptional for a rookie.
