I agree and hope he pans out for us..

That's just the type of player we needed. Glad we signed him. Hope he can do what you say.

Wtf. We can't have an opinion on it? Just cause they are a great FO doesn't mean I have to agree with every single move they make.

Sometimes I just think you post to cause friction.

This local radio guy Cecil Lammey was cackling the same thing. Dude went on, and on, and on, and on about it, I kid you not. Moreno gets no respect at all. Another radio guy Sandy Clough, was berating a caller that said Moreno was a better outlet back than Ball, Clough went on and on and on about it also bagging on Moreno. It's surprising how Moreno gets such little respect.

Sometimes you should not think.

Better yet post.

See post 53. That should clarify my stance.

But I guess it is ok for you but not for me.

They must not have been pleased with the game-tape that Hillman and Ball put up against the Chargers.

I'm guessing Ball is permanently deactivated before the Baltimore game. Manning never had a FB before...now he has two. strange.
Ball won't be deactivated, jebus.

Well, he's young at least. Sometimes guys when the get a new chance with a different team, things click for them. He is a bit like Hillis. I think Hillis had better hands but Hester has more speed. Both are physical inside runners who have some skill on the outside. Hester does pick up the blitz decent. I'm sure this was a precautionary move in case KM pulls up lame, which usually happens. They had to get somebody signed quick and get them working in the system, learning the plays and all that. Could not afford to wait 2 or 3 weeks and if Moreno went down, now your in real scramble mode. Better to have got this guy now, let him learn the plays for next few weeks and if KM goes out, you have a guy who at least knows some of the plays.

I was only talking about Peyton's preference for white offensive players....the defense has its fair share of crackers as well.

Not as popular as if he were to get hurt, drive drunk, fumble, be deactivated for half a season, then have a few good runs.

I wonder if they don't inactivate Gronk and activate Hester.

Also could be insurance for KM, just because he had one decent game vs a team that he has had his best 2 games ever against doesn't mean he is a lock at that level or better the rest of the year.

Plus KM was McGshee's insurance so we have no backup plan should KM get hurt or fail to perform.

Not saying Hester is better than KM, just that if he is needed to pick up a few short yardage carries or pass pro he can step in.

I don't think so, they ran him a couple times after that and he picked up a couple KM type runs.

I think KM was the feature back Sunday because he has had his 2 biggest games vs kFc and they were hoping to give him some confidence. I do think that KM performing kept Ball on the bench.

I bet vs Tampa we see more rotation at the RB position and a focus on the passing game. They have one of the best run stuffing D's in the league.

Tampa is a team we need to have a complete game against.

He wouldn't have been able to do anything against the Chiefs, so why pay him for that week.

Also I agree the Prius is definitely more of a white person's car than the Civic. The Civic is just a good car, but the new 2012 Civics are not as good, I hear.

And I don't really listen to Cold Play. However being white and learning white people listen to cold play, I am going to explore the band further.

Not sure about that. I think he needed to do that in a meaningless preseason game.
