Of course, he's clearly not a #1 back and clearly a bust as the 12th pick in the draft, period. However, he isn't as bad as some make him out to be- he's an okay #2 NFL back.

It was great to see Moreno come through like he did. I think he can be a bigger factor in the passing game.

Moreno was nothing more than average. It appeared he was playing harder, which is good, but call me when he's able to string a few consecutive games together before we start sucking each others *****.

In our case, average is a boon.

An 'average' number 2 (number 4?) back is worth something; and the results are worth celebrating considering the low expectations.

I would like to think he got the message from Fox that this was his last shot, lets see how he does the next couple weeks.

He will trip up and lose out on a couple big gainers each week. I just hope the cut back is there when he runs up Franklin's back next week.

I want him to do well, his best games are against kFc, lets see what he does vs real competition, we need him to contribute.
When he has to change direction he basically stops... it's like he widens his stance and loses all his speed then has to start up again. McGahee just keeps churning forwards.

And apparently you're not alone:

Told off the record to 104.3 The Fan's Brandon Krisztal earlier in the week regarding Hillman: "Number 18 just doesn't trust this guy yet." The good news is that Hillman is just 21 years of age, so there's time.

Who here thinks Ball should get cut for one of those guys we worked out?

If this was a single occurance, OK but this happens every game he plays in
He must have low arches. He should wear high tops.

We still have an unused roster spot nobody needs to be cut.

I will admit I was one of those guys that doubted Moreno, but he had a good game today. I hope he keeps it up and stay healthy. I still think Hillman should get more carries.

Moreno played well today, better than expected, which was encouraging. I'm salivating over the possibility of drafting The Duke in two years, though. Clinton Portis Part Deux...except better.

Duke Johnson is sick, but this team needs a young bell-cow back next year.

When I hear about someone quietly doing their best after being reprimanded/demoted, I automatically pull for them. I would love nothing more than for Knowshon to take over the RB position now, and hold onto it for the next four or five years. It isn't likely, but it would be great.

He really came out and helped the team, I think him spending time getting healthy was huge, and also his time on the scout team was good to get reps against the D and a wake up call that he needed to step his game up when you have Lance Ball starting ahead of you.

He needs to stay healthy but he looks like a different player(granted it was just one game, he was patient and looked for holes)
