We can audition everyone next week in the 2nd half when we're up 30. Lets dress like 5 RB's and give them all a series. We could even try out Virgil Green or and Jim Leonhard back there.

Not mad. Knowshon tries hard. He can become a hero if he succeeds.

Looking forward to see the reaction from Hillman, Ball, and Moreno. This could be what it takes for Hillman to snap out of his rookie daze. Your only as good as your NEXT MAN UP!

...would be sweet if McGahee is only out 4 weeks.

I think it will clearly be Knowshon as the lead back now.

There was no reason for us to keep him rostered except as pure depth to McGahee. Hillman is the change of pace back and Ball plays special teams, which is the only reason he's been active and Moreno has not been. If Moreno wasn't the direct backup to McGahee, then we would not have kept him.

I'm grabbing him in my fantasy league. We have a cupcake run defense schedule in the fantasy playoffs, and I think Moreno will be the lead back, with Hillman and Ball keeping the exact same roles they have now.

Well, this is why Moreno wasn't traded/cut. Adding another back from the street for depth is due diligence but you'd have to think Moreno is in a better to position to be productive than, say, Steve Slaton.

After sitting out most of the season Moreno has fresh legs and something to prove. I'm betting he runs well.

Why is everyone so sure Moreno is going to play alot? How do you go from street cloths to number 1 back in a week? The more likely scenario is Hillman will start next week,, the offense will sputter a bit because Hillman stinks,, then Ball will come in and finish with around 14-16 carries. I predict maybe 3 carries for Moreno. How do we know Johnson wont dress instead of Moreno. The fact is.. you dont.

I'm betting Moreno will do fine. He knows the playbook and has fresh legs. This is why he was kept. This is his chance to redeem himself. What a golden opportunity. Good luck KM. Don't blow it!

From the forgotten confines of the inactive list...an unlikely hero emerged.

Coming off an ACL injury, from the previous year, #27 bided his time. Waiting to be called on, the 4-year Pro finally got his chance...



Ride Broncos....RIDE!!!

Ya right.

He could have 150 combined rushing and receiving yards and a TD or two every game and people would find fault with him, saying he left yards on the field, got gassed after every long run, celebrated too much, didn't get as much as McGahee would've gotten, only got his yards in garbage time.....something. Anything to discredit what he's done.

Just look at how fast the Hillman fan boys already turned on HIM, and it's only been a few games with very few carries per game for him. It's pretty comical.

Not good news. Hope he's back for the playoffs. Moreno is not the answer for sure.

Probably cause the starting RB went down. Hillman won't carry the load a starting RB. Even if he's starting. There will be NO clear starter. Have you not watched at all this year? People were complaining there was NO run game before Mcgahee got hurt. You seem hell bent on pointing out your negative opinion about this entire team. They are averaging 30 points a game with a average at best run game this year. That should tell you something.

Something your seriously struggling to accept.

Here comes the stats in 3..2..1..
If that were true he would have been cut long ago. Roster spots are too precious to keep a player you have no intention of ever using. He will be active and he will play.

Bring RBs in is just due diligence. Doubt the sign one and if they do sign someone you can bet it will be a heavy hitter like Willis.

Moreno has been with the team the whole season, not in street clothes. He's been to practice and the film room all season. So that's why he's the most likely back to get most of the carries and it doesn't alter the game plan too much.

Here is the conundrum:
1. They are hoping McGahee will only be out 4-6 weeks
2. "Temporary" IR designation is no longer applicable
3. To sign a Free Agent, a currently active player would need to be cut
4. The only possible guys they could cut would be Knowshon Moreno or Julius Thomas (that I an see).
5. Don't think that's going to happen


It all comes down to who you think is more valuable...Joseph Addai or Knowshon Moreno. It's going to be a tough call...but if they were going to drop Knowshon for Addai, they would have done it at the start of the season. Fox and Co. aren't into mid-season roster shake-ups. A part of me thinks Addai is better...but something is obviously going on with him, or he would be on a team already.

Simply not true. I only rag on the run game/McGahee and the people on here who think in terms of fantasy i.e lets just play the big name and never question the performance of a veteran.

So 30 is fine and we shouldnt try and improve? Do you understand that our QB is having one of if not the best season ever by a QB? Do you understand that we're only going to have him for a few seasons? I want a Lombardi this year.

You of all people should be thrilled about this. It gives you the prefect chance to start another fake thread with crap info about the new RB Denver is going to sign off the street.
