Next year he might be able to push Willis for the starting job or at least get a 50/50 or 60/40 split with a bit of Hillman sprinkled in.
The biggest thing I noticed today (other than Moreno's 115 yards including an absolutely sick hurdle of Ed Reed
) was the disappearance of Lance Ball. Fine with me, cause I've never been very impressed by him, but man, Jacob Hester comes in off the street and takes all your carries? Ouch.
Yet Moreno is outplaying McGahee in every facet of the game, and not fumbling at the league leading rate McGahee was.
Moreno should remain the starter.
