If he is on the PS I would elevate him.

Slaton is interesting even if others have passed on him.

I trust this staff to find the right guy they have made a ton of great moves already this year.

If I were John I would look over Shanny's PS and see what he has stashed there RB wise...

To be fair, the Pats' conditioning test consisted of Addai operating a high powered HD video camera from a quarter mile away using a telephoto lens. I mean, the dude went to LSU. He can barely read. Making him use high end tech stuff is just out of his depth. Maybe an iPhone camera but not the HD.

Tatum Bell says "Broncos need to call me". Guessing that's on a flowed phone from his old mall job.

What most of the naysayers of McGahee don't understand is that Willis may not be a dynamic back but he was top 10 in rushing on his way to a monster day on Sunday and he is a guy that instead of getting 2-3 yards would consistently get you 4-5 putting the team into a managable 2 down.

Even with Willis we still have issues converting 3rd and short but now I'm not sure we have that RBBC or next man up that can put us in 3rd and two like Willis was doing for us

We will see. I want to see if he can just stay on the field without getting hurt a la Samuel Jackson style.

I'm still not sure where this OM meme came from...Outside of an ACL tear, Moreno has been pretty healthy...it's not like he is Ryan Torain or Boss Bailey

I understand that team mates generally won't throw other players under the bus, but they do see how well or badly other players practice. I'd be a little more optimistic about how well Moreno will perform.

So if other, allegedly more talented RB's in the NFL aren't doing as well against our 1st string D on game day, perhaps the praise he's getting from his team mates is warranted?

I never hated Moreno, and I honestly think that he was inactive because it was apparent post Atlanta game that he was physically unable to perform because he was still rehabing. I honestly would not be surprised to see Moreno have a red letter day vs KC.

I remember the Tweaked Hammy would always make an appearance.

b****, we are getting a first round bye!

JJ no lookie?

BTW, this is why the coaching staff has kept Moreno out this whole time. They needed to make sure he was injury safe. They locked him up in a room for his own good.

Yeah, McGahee looked great next to Hillman, but I'm telling you, Ball will be just as effective as McGahee running the ball. Can Ball pass protect and always be in the correct spot like McGahee.. we shall see. But as far as pure rushing skills, McGahee wont be difficult to replace.

I think JJ will be on the active roster next year. No sense in taking him off the PS and losing him since he is ineligble for it if he plays another game. WM cant be IR'd and brought back due to how late we are in the season. Why have 5RBs on the 53? I think they'll bring in some guy for depth but to develop JJ just to cut him wouldnt make sense.

Look were most effective on Offense in the 3-wide set which means our backs have to run efficiently between the tackles and pass protect with a vengeance. Hillman doesnt do either particularly well. He may be improving, but I think Ball is the guy who will eventually get the most carries. He's the guy im picking up in fantasy at least.

Might make sense if he wasnt killing the broncos from the scout team

You must be in a league were you lose points for fumbles. Nine touches and he fumbled last week. When they wanted to run the clock out they trusted Hillman not Ball.
