I'll say the same thing about Moreno at this point. He's clearly got enough talent to be utilized but yet the staff keeps him inactive. To me, this is a huge tell that something is going wrong with the kid beyond his on-field production. So the question is, will he flame out like Hillis or will he ever use some of that ability? I liked his chances to be a compliment to WM. But, like some have said, he doesn't have the staff's trust. We've seen this before.
That said, he should see touches this week if WM is out. Bottom line is, we all just need to pray that the MRI is clean because he's the most talented back we have by a mile despite the Orange Mane experts claiming otherwise.
This. He was on pace to go for 140-160 yards yesterday. WM doesn't get hurt, we beat the Bolts by 20. Yeah, he has some fumbling issues, but he's probably the 3rd most important player on this offense behind PM and Clady. Thankfully, we play largely crappy teams for the rest of the year, but Willis has to be relatively healthy for this team to have any chance of making noise in the playoffs.
