Well they better bring in someone else. Cause hillman Moreno and ball aren't gonna get it done.


Preferably one who doesn't have fumblitus

They REALLY don't have any confidence in Moreno, if they are working out RBs. Nice drafting job, McDaniels....

Big blow... Yeah they need to sign someone but not sure any unsigned FA would be any better than the guys they got.

Its the Hillman/Ball show now.
Trying out RBs doesnt exactly show any confidence in slowshon.

I love how everyone is assuming that this is an indictment of Knowshon, but not Hillman, Ball or Johnson.

I love how Slowshon never played another down after the ATL game.
Now if that isnt an indictment, along with all the carries Hillman and Ball get, i dont know what is.
CLEARLY there is a personal problem between Slowshon and the FO.

Bingo. That "indictment" was already out there.

By looking for someone new now, instead of just looking to give the current guys (Ball and Hillman) more reps, is more of an indictment on the guys currently carrying the ball than someone who was already relegated to the doghouse.

Bingo.
That means the FO has a real problem with slowshon, and needs warm bodies for depth.
Something your seriously struggling to accept.

Here comes the stats in 3..2..1..

I'd say because 2 of them wear pads on Sunday and one does not.

actually it has nothing to do with confidence in KM. It has to do with healthy bodies. Right now only Hillman and Ball are active, hence we need to stash another RB on the inactive list just in case one of ours goes dumb.

Damn... wish folks around here would just leave the blind hate! Like it or not, our running game right now depends of Moreno, Ball and Hillis. The last 2 I mentioned are not remotely close to being capable starting backs in this league... just not right now in Hillman's case. Thinking a street agent is going to get touches over Moreno right now is pretty delusional. Or do you want a street free agent to mess up on a protection call and get PM injured? Yeah... though so!

Hillis Baby! Good call. Now we just gotta get the battle toad to cut him outright.

Moreno must have killed someone in Fox's family...seriously, I am not a fan of the kid but he knows the system and players, he really must have blown it if they're looking at other options.

I get the depth discussion, but come on.

If it's 6 weeks he is back for the first round of the playoffs. If we can get the bye he could be back for the first game after it.

I may be in the minority but I'm looking forward to seeing Hilllman getting some increased carries. Spelling a 31 year old with a 21 year old at least until the playoffs start should give him some valuable experience and maybe give us that 1-2 punch out of the backfield we've been missing all year.

Also want to see Peyton give the bird to the run game and have the offense get even more potent. Especially if we win these next couple games and there's less pressure.

Why wouldn't you bring in at least one more guy for depth? I assume Moreno has a bit of a leg up, but if he really doesn't show anything or gets hurt you'll want another guy who has been in the system a few weeks.

SOMEBODY has a vote of no confidence. If it's not Moreno, it's Ball or Hillman. This offense doesn't need 4 active RBs, on the roster...

I'm still in the camp confused that Moreno isn't in the active lineup. I can buy maybe it has to do with special teams (Ball) and overlapping skill set (Hillman). Still, our best bet to make it through this McGahee injury without a big dip in offense will be because Moreno steps up.
