My point was that Willis has had a bad game or 2 throughout the year but he usually has a big game (talking career single game rush totals for KM) to make up for it.
The argument was that KM is the drop off from McGhee hasn't been much, for that to remain true KM needs to have a 120+ yard day this week.
Actually THIS year McGahee averages 73 rushing yards a game and 20 receiving. In Moreno's 2 starts, he has averaged 77 rushing yards and 20 receiving per game. So actually there has been no drop off. And better yet, 2 games in a row without a fumble from the RB position. Willis has 3 100 yard games this year. In his other 7 games, he hasn't had more than 66 yards.
All KM has to keep doing is running hard to keep selling the pass and not fumble. If his average holds up, he will actually outproduce McGahee in this offense.
