As for Hillman, I really hope he pans out. I just wish the Broncos would play him a little more. McGahee is going to wear down and I'd think the Broncos would want McGahee healthy later in the year when they are either making a push for the playoffs or in the playoffs. The Broncos really should be playing Hillman NOW.
I have to agree...Willis only has so many more carries in him honestly. He's been a warrior, but he needs rest.
Good news is, another good crop of RB's coming next season.
