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.

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.

Jay Glazer ‏@JayGlazer

On top of Willis McGahee's torn MCL @mortreport reported on, he also has a fracture in the leg, which adds to why he's out 6-8 weeks

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.

This sucks, but if he can be back for playoffs that's certainly the silver lining here.

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.

MF we can't catch a damn break in terms of injury. How many starters now from Camp have we lost, it's alot I know it.

Yeah, we can pick somebody up to replace McGahee but there are only 6 weeks left. Somebody will have to learn the playbook and produce right away. ****. Not good.

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.

MCL's aren't that bad. Hopefully we can find someone and put together enough depth to pulls us through.

The good news is between the defense and special teams, and offense going through Peyton, we're not out of it yet by a long shot.

This is where I would start, for sure. He knows the plays. He's got some decent size and good speed, good hands. And again, he knows the playbook, to some extent anyway and that is going to be huge vs some other back that's basically going to have to be told in each huddle what to do.

I honestly don't know if there is any "status" (injury related) on JJ. He's on the PS.....so I'm not sure why they wouldn't consider activating him.

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...
