I Now Believe In Aliens
 
Why? Because their kidnapping of Knowshon Moreno and replacing him with a real live NFL running back is the only logical explanation.

Popps 12-16-2012 11:24 AM

Moreno has always had talent. He's struggled when the line struggled, and can't stay healthy. Outside of that, it's a pretty tired subject. His success behind a good line with a quality passing game shouldn't surprise anyone. The question will be... can he stay on the field.

He lacks great vision but if he could stay healthy he would be a good RB.

Knowshon s leap over Reed is in my top 10 this year, that was a great run

enjolras 12-16-2012 12:11 PM

That's a hold.

enjolras 12-16-2012 12:14 PM

That's the wrong thread:)

He has looked great.

broncosteven 12-16-2012 01:16 PM

He had 2 100 yard games in his 1st 3 years and 2 in limited time this season.

I think he finally got the message.

I wonder if they redo his contract at the end of the year.

No need to redo it IMO. He's currently under contract for $1.7 million next year. That's chump change if he keeps up his current pace, or anywhere near it really.

Had jalapeno poppers for dinner last night. My first ET sighting was this morning! Moreno still dances too much...oh well.

Haters still gonna hate.

Why not lock him up for a couple more years and back load it? If he really has turned it around he should be open to a reworked deal.

Because he can already be had on the cheap and RBs outside of a rare few just aren't worth the long term investment in today's league

They could offer him a 5 year deal that is favorable to the team and he can take it and get a nice bonus and repay us for underperforming his rookie deal. Win win for everyone.

When Willis comes back KM will be back to a backup role. We can get him cheap for a couple more years or let him play out the contract and go somewhere else after his deal runs out.

maher_tyler 12-16-2012 02:14 PM

He looks to have packed on at least 10-15 lbs. He has looked like the #1 pick the past few games.

Sure, but there's no hurry. He's on this team next year (2013) for all of $1.7M and the team has a $5M option for the year after that (2014), so if he blows up and becomes a feature back what's $5M in a league where Deangelo Williams makes over $8M a year and Steven Jackson is making $7M?

If after 2013 he's willing to take a team friendly deal then you can talk, but lets see what role he fits in over a whole 16 game season with this new offense. If healthy it looks like a quality starter if we give the last few games any credence, and what's $5M to retain one of those?

Yes, wtf is the hurry.

Popps 12-16-2012 02:29 PM

Again, I've made the case for Moreno's skills from day one, but I'd be reluctant to sink money into a long term deal due to his injury history. Let's just enjoy watching him contribute and see where things go next year.

That is the size of it Popps, Last season he was looking a lot better in preseason and the limited work he got as McGahee's backup until blowing out his knee, than in his first two team turmoil years.

He is finally fully recovered and healthy and has a good solid team all around him so that the Knowshon of Georgia is starting to appear shouldn't be a major shock to anyone.. but for sure a timely happening!

TheChamp24 12-16-2012 02:40 PM

Yeah, I was like, WTF where did this come from.
We might have a good surplus of RB's next year now with Moreno, McGahee and Hillman.

Also, no way do we need to work on extending his contract, thats ridiculous talk.

ZONA 12-16-2012 03:12 PM

He was solid today. Not special, but solid. That's all we need right now. Solid gains, with no turnovers. Keep it up KM, you're doing well.

12-16-2012 03:27 PM

KM has been running hard and I will eat the crow I have been dishing him. I never thought he had that style of running in him. Way to revive your career from the dead KM.

DBroncos4life 12-16-2012 03:32 PM

I still think Denver should take Lattimore in the draft. Moreno is playing well enough to allow us to make the pick and let him get healthy.
