Hillman has shown flashes here and there, but he hasn't dazzled anyone.
It's easy to be down on Moreno, but the guy fights for yards. He's not a great runner, and would be better if he was more fluid and could cut-back...but he doesn't. Neither Moreno, nor Hillman are 'special', but they are good enough to get the job done. I can't complain about their effort.

I don't understand the nit-picking. If a d lineman gets through, I would bet these guys are coached to grab on regardless of the possible penalty. A ten yard loss is better than a full-speed hit on Manning.
I'm not worried about the OL pass-blocking at all. The Broncos are top 5 in sacks given up. Also, not nit picking about run blocking. They opened up some great holes throughout the game. The OL's run-blocking problems CAN be solved...if they eliminate their mistakes, and get more practice running the ball. Although Beadles had a pretty bad game.

Wolfe is right there man. He made some plays early in the year, and affected a lot of plays. Now, he is getting consistent pressure from the interior, and should have more sacks if not for a Dumervil penalty and Miller being there a split-second before him a few times. Hopefully he continues to progress.

I like Brooking, because he's a Bronco, but I think he and DJ should switch roles. Every big run you see, Brooking is being completely blocked out of the play. As time goes on, I think you will see a switch.
