I do think Moreno is a better runner then Ball. I also think he's just as good if not just a tad better at pass blocking.
I think both guys are going to get their plays. I really do think this is going to be replace McGahee by committee. So it doesn't matter who's in there, not 1 back is probably going to be the "feature" guy.
Moreno went into the regular season as the #2 (hence his goal line TD in week 1), then was benched after week 2. The reasoning's have been speculation ever since.
