That's a good point unless you think maybe Oman would be a better step in for Willis' spot than JJ. I think JJ might make more sense for Hillman's role, but I'm not sure he'd be right as an every-down kind of back.

I'm not sure what Oman's size was, but he seemed like he played 'bigger' than JJ or Hillman.

He has a torn MCL and a broken leg I think 7-8 weeks is more realistic. I wouldn't be surprised to see him go on IR.
He doesn't have a broken leg. Where are you getting that?

For those wondering:

Jerimiah Johnson has been in 8 NFL games already... and that's the maximum allowed in order to be eligible for the PS.

If I'm understanding the rules correctly, if he plays another game he can't go back on the PS.

Yep. Not a good year for RBs. There's arguably not a single one available worth better than a third round pick. The Broncos are going to need to go shopping in FA.

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

At this point you don't care about that. You have a golden chance here to get a good seed in the playoffs and go on a run for the Superbowl. The last thing you are worried about is if some player is eligible for the PS if you play him, under these circumstances.

I like JJ and Oman, maybe even Marion Barber. And really, I think you have to look at Moreno. Those are the 4 guys that come to mind right off the bat for me.

Whoever they decide to use is probably not going to see much time right away without knowing the system.

Just because the Broncos are bringing in RB's for a look does not mean they will sign any. My understanding is that the Broncos regularly works out players on Tuesday anyway as a group. I.E. OL one week, DL another week, etc. It just so happens this week was RB's. So if that is true, let's not read too much into it.

With that said, Slayton is more of a Hillman type RB; smaller in nature, etc., so I'm not sure he would be a good replacement for McGahee anyway. I don't know if Joseph Addai is being looked at, but he would make sense if he is in shape just because he is familiar with the system.

What I think they will/may do is just activate Moreno and put him in the rotation. Maybe they promote Jeremiah Johnson from the PS, but I am not sure they have to.

Doctors have told Willis McGahee not to put any weight on leg. He will not need surgery and he thinks he can come back in four to six weeks.

If I had the choice between a passing power or rushing power id take passing all the way. Broncos were number 1 ranked rushing offense last year. Giants were ranked 32nd. That turned out well for them bad for us. As long as they maintain a 4 per carry it will work itself out. Not confident in the current RBs ability to see the lanes and make the right cuts, so I'm interested to see who they bring in.

We wont skip a beat. Hopefully McCoy will take this opportunity to install a few screens and sweeps into the offense. I feel bad for Willis, but as fans, I think we're good.

I think Knowshon is the best possible replacement, he can run the ball and catch the balls from Peyton. The only thing is that Knowshon lacks is the vision that Willis has on the field.

I'd like to see hillman/Moreno split the carries.

Oman is 5-11 227 lbs. JJohnson is 5-9 200.
And Oman is not on the 4 and 9ers PS.
Might be wise to look at him considering his size.
Anyone remember how he looked blocking? !

Best case scenario: The Broncos keep winning and McGahee and Kuper can rest up until the playoffs.

Why do people keep thinking Addai knows the system? Despite them inserting many plays the Colts used, it is NOT the same language. It was said that they thought it would be easier for Peyton to learn a new language and system instead of making every player on the offense learn a new one.

Im not saying he couldnt learn it but, he isnt going to be an immediate plug and play.
