I think everyone in the world knew that Denver didn't have a running back able to run after McGahee. The FO didn't need to snap the fingers they just needed to be prepared for something like this. Moreno and Hillman should be on the roster. They had all offseason to do something to improve on Ball.
Having a guy that is good at blocking like Ball is great but it still is a liability for Manning. Ball comes in teams know he is in there to block not run so they can send more people. One missed block and bam down goes Manning.
