Is it that hard to just support the guy? I am not a fan, but he's a Bronco and potentially the next man up.

How about we root for him to succeed instead of expecting him to fail?

Good lord.

Ball seems like a great guy, he really does, but he has never shown he is ready to be a starting running back.
It doesn't matter what you think Moreno can do. The coaches dont agree with you. He doesnt even dress man. Assuming he's not hurt, this is all the proof we need. They dont think much of him. They didnt draft him. You guys live in la la land. You really think Moreno will come out next week and get 20 carries? Fox doesnt care what he's done in the past or how high he was drafted. He cares about how you look in practice this week. He may get a few carries and if he looks good he may get a few more, but as of right now I think Ball takes McGahee's spot and its status quo.

Against KC is absolutely the best game to see what KM can bring now that he has had a chance to watch games in street cloths. They should give him Bell's cell phone number so he can ask him if there is any difference between playing in the NFL and working in a Kiosk.

I've seen enough from the got I don't expect much. He lost me dancing against Raiders in that abortion of a game.

I thought he was great on one play and whiffed on another. Seems the book on him was he was not consistent but I am not sure about that.

At this point, any guy you sign off of the street isn't going to be ready against the Chefs. I think you start Hillman, and give him 10-12 carries to see if he can get into a rhythm and see if the additional reps help the game to start to slow down for him. The problem though is that it seems to me like he still struggles with the protections and with where to lineup when PFM audibles. Start Hillman, and use Moreno as the 3rd Down back, with Ball as the "power" back. Just glad we've got a relatively easy schedule down the stretch.

Man you are an idiot. If Ball was so good why did he get replaced by a rookie too. You have been wrong a bunch of times up and down these threads. That's why everyone thinks you are just a troll. Only trolls keep coming back for more after being wrong so many times. The others just disappear.

It's not like Hillman has been producing mightily, nor Ball, so it would be nice to see Moreno produce. Holliday I guess is the 4th string RB.
Maybe this will turn out to be like the WW situation. He just might surprise everyone and play lights out just like WW is doing.

Note; I want to go on record that I never gave up on Knowshon Morano.

It's encouraging that you don't think much of him. That means he will be great.

It's not out of the ordinary to see someone lose their job in sports, sit on the bench, then come back with a better passion for the game.

McGahee has only gotten over 66 yards three times this year...against the Falcons (26th against the run), Raiders (23rd against the run), and Saints (32nd against the run).

The Broncos can overcome this, and it couldn't have came at a better time.

That's what we're hoping for. Also he was coming off an ACL last November I believe. Gotta hope for the best.

I suspect the carries to be split between all three of them. Ride the hottest bum will be method of attack.
