Mcgahee looked slow and sluggish out there
 
I thought atleast- compared to the first few weeks when he looked great. Maybe he's nursing something that we dont know about. I know the OL wasnt helping him out much as far as making lanes, but I still wasnt seeing any burst from out him.
Maybe its time to get Moreno back in the mix and give the guy one last try. Or hopefully if Willis is hurt this by week will make it right.

I thought he looked great in the 2nd half

I see the entire offense being slow on those run plays. I don't know if they are slow developing by design or not, but the blockers and Willis just look like they are playing in mud on some of those plays.

i just thought the burst and shiftiness was lacking. from what my eyes saw. if no one else thinks so, then fine, maybe it was just me.. i did have a few banquets.

yerner 10-16-2012 09:36 AM

i agree. he should be a number 2 back. unfortunately they don't have anyone better right now.

My wife and I commented on it, he did seem like he was running in Mud a bit in the first half. Willis won't last forever, I suspect he may start slowing down later this season. I think we will need to Draft another back.

I'm on record really liking Cameron Marshall from ASU, and with their new offense and crowded backfield, I think he will slip from lack of production this season.

I am also still interested in getting Moreno back on the field...he is still more useful than Ball IMO. Hillman seems to be working into the game though, so it may not be necessary.

doonwise 10-16-2012 09:40 AM

We need a running back to effectively spell him or we won't have his services later in the season. Where did Knowshon get off to anyway? Haven't heard anything about the guy for weeks. Hillman is still so tentative. Wish we had another 215-220lb running back to give McGahee a break.

10-16-2012 09:44 AM

Hillman is the 3rd down back now. I think they are starting to trust him more but he still has things to work on. Im just glad to see when Willis comes out, Hillman comes in.

Moreno back LOL. He is the #4 RB that is always inactive.

gyldenlove 10-16-2012 09:51 AM

The offensive line played like **** in the 1st half, on too many runs Willis had to evade contact in the backfield in the first half. In the 2nd half when they went more power less stretch in the run game he did better.

I believe we will see Hillman get worked in to the offense more during the bye week, I think he really suffered from being out early and missing out on install work.

Meh, he started the season as #2 and was deactivated after a fumble.

If we did that to every Bronco who fumbled this season we wouldn't be able to field a complete team.

10-16-2012 10:01 AM

What's disappointing to see is not so much if he's looking slow or not, but the checking himself out on several drives. Gruden made a comment about this and I've seen it in several games. Drive starts at the 20, Mcgahee runs a few plays. Drive gets to about mid field and its almost automatic he waves to the sideline for relief. Even after like 2 or 3 carries.

Yeah, THAT is the only reason why he was pulled. A single fumble.

We don't have a lot of evidence otherwise. That was the last carry he had. Why even give him that carry if you planned on never letting him touch the ball again. Or was it because the other 2 whole carries he got that game were ineffective?

Moreno is obviously in the doghouse for one reason or another that we can't see, but as for on the field....he's still better than Ball.

CEH 10-16-2012 10:28 AM

I've heard Moerno's practice work ethic leaves alot to be desired. It's just not about his fumble. Really only reason he's here right now is Hillman was injured during TC

Baba Booey 10-16-2012 10:31 AM

I agree; he looked slow as hell when he was carrying two and three defenders at a time across the first down markers.

weak....annoying as hell when an athlete sleeps away the opportunity to play professional sports.

Doesn't matter where you start the season because right now he is the #4. He was given the opportunity and ran the ball into the back of the OL, missed pass protection assignments and sealed his fate with the fumble. He is was he is a fringe roster player who doesn't suit up on gameday.

To be completely accurate, he obviously WAS NOT....though he may be now.

I maintain that it has more to do with something in practice or behind the scenes though, as he has still shown more than a scrub like Ball.

Houshyamama 10-16-2012 10:42 AM

Hillman is quicker to the hole and better in space. McGahee gets more yards after contact. If they continue to attempt to run the ball down the opponents throat, McGahee makes sense. I really want to see Hillman out there for a quick draw on second down though.

Garcia Bronco 10-16-2012 10:54 AM

He's not getting spelled enough, but Hillman is coming along...did you see those blocks last night? Awesome stuff. His day is coming.

Mogulseeker 10-16-2012 10:57 AM

I thought the Chargers dline played well at th point of attack agains the run. McGhee ran hard even though he was getting stuffed.
