Moreno stepped his game up
 
He knows this is his last chance, and he's rising to the occasion...

11-25-2012 01:45 PM

He looked good. North and south. And two hands on the ball at all times.

Mission accomplished I'd say.

Goobzilla 11-25-2012 01:47 PM

Good enough. A couple tackles by the Turf Monster but a positive performance overall.

Ray Finkle 11-25-2012 01:48 PM

Ran well and ran hard.

Houshyamama 11-25-2012 01:51 PM

Impressive I'd say, I'm happy for him.

Actually he ran this hard last season before he blew his knee out....and was running this hard earlier, but he did fumble that one time this year, and that is an unforgivable sin to some on here.

11-25-2012 01:53 PM

I have been one of his biggest critics. He played well today, in fact, I might even say, without his performance today, Denver may not have won.

However, I will say this... I still feel it is inevitable that the Know-Show that most of us know too well will eventually come back.

DenverBound 11-25-2012 01:54 PM

I loved his performance today but God does he make it look bad. He is the clumsiest back I have ever watched run. It's embarrassing. He trips over his own feet, misses obvious holes and shows no confidence. The only thing he's confident about are his abilities to get up off the ground. He pops up like boss.

If he showed half the confidence running the ball that he shows getting up from tripping over his own feet we'd be alright.

Fumbling in itself is not unforgivable, but some of his fumbles came at the most inopportune times that ended up costing Denver games.

Beantown Bronco 11-25-2012 01:57 PM

I'm very happy for him.

Next week will be a tough test for sure. TB has the #1 ranked run defense in the league. If he can even somewhat replicate today's numbers, we'll do just fine. We need more consistent blocking though. We were largely dominated up front today.

He will have his chances the rest of the way though. Nobody we face after TB has an even somewhat decent run defense.

11-25-2012 02:02 PM

Good god, it almost seems like it causes some of you pain to say anything nice about the guy. Hilarious!

Evidently you didn't like the big **** sandwich Knowshon made you eat today, huh?

Really? which one? And pray tell when is there ever an opportune time to fumble the ball?

If you think the fumble vs. Falcons cost us that game, you're not only stupid, you're ****ing stupid as all get out......

Yeah because he's the only RB that's tripped himself up running the ball....

the hatred for this guy is just mind blowing.....

This.

I've debunked this myth before. He has 8 career lost fumbles and 5 of them either came in wins or in games that we lost by 20 or more points. Another was that Falcons game. Another came early in the first half of a close game.

DenverBound 11-25-2012 02:12 PM

I can't count how many times I screamed out "just hit the ****ing hole!!!" I appreciated his patience but damn man get your legs moving at least...

go_broncos 11-25-2012 02:24 PM

it's just one game..

Patience to allow the holes to develop was one of Moreno's weaknesses. I was incredibly excited to see him run with patience like that. His biggest gains came from allowing the play to develop.

No, I agree completely. It's just that when he finally sees the hole open up he still is timid to run through it. Hit it and hit it hard man.

I gave him props for his game today. What else would you expect me to do?

11-25-2012 02:38 PM

Why do I get the feeling a lot of you are sitting at home crossing your fingers and hoping the guy fails massively? You do get that Moreno finally putting it together and staying healthy from here on out will help our playoff hopes right?

Popps 11-25-2012 02:39 PM

Again. He's a talented back. His health has been his biggest downfall. He's a polarized player because of who drafted him. If he was a 4th round Fox selection... we'd all be praising him as one of the better back-ups in the league.

The issue will be his health. Hopefully he can finally stay on the field.

So you are going to try to claim that some fumbles don't have as big an effect on games as other fumbles? Last year, he several fumbles that hurt us big time. You never want to see one of your own players fumble, but if you fumble when you are up by 3 touchdowns, that is a lot less costly than some of the other times he has fumbled.

I don't know if you are thinking of me, but I said it before, if he sees the field, I root for him. It is in the Broncos best interests for him to perform well when he does play. Only fake fans would not agree with that. I am happy for him, and was glad that he hit those holes and broke tackles. He played very well.

BigPlayShay 11-25-2012 02:42 PM

Only lost his shoe once from what I could see. Seriously though, he looked good, even after contact.
