To be fair...I think it was only oudoctorbroncosteven who called for the cut or 7th round trade.

I think.

Easy? No

Willis went for 122 yards, 33 yards receiving, and a TD.

The last 3 games he's played, he's definitely shown some growth. He's not dancing as much as he used to in the backfield; he sees the hole and goes, which is a good thing. In my opinion he had a very good game running the ball today, and his blocking is improving as well. Lots of positives that's for sure.

The people who hate on him have BMI's in the 30s, listen to Brad Paisley and wear the same flanel shirts every day of the week. They are what we call ****ing losers.

What, now the resurgence of km means that rb is no longer a high need? KM has performed adequately but let's not get ahead of ourselves here.

The true key is the guy staying healthy because Hillman doesn't look capable of every-down work.
Hillman needs to bulk the F up and he still wouldn't be an every down back.

Injuries is the key word since Moreno likes to break his vag.

Maybe not easy... but he lost a fumble in that game that briefly kept the Saints in the game. I still think you can make the argument.

He's been really solid for three straight games. Christ, he didnt ask to be drafted there. Why does everyone have to throw that stupid caveat everytime he plays well

Really don't know how anyone can **** on KM's performance tonight. That last drive was his best series as a Bronco. Everyone in the building knew he was running and he was still grounded Oakland up. He's going to be the featured back the rest of the season. Hope his body holds up.

3.7 yards a carry. I didnt think that was too hard to understand. Against one of the worst run defenses in the league. Not impressed at ALL. I am impressed by him not getting hurt or losing his shoe though!

Solid first two games, finally had a breakout game today. Now, the effer needs to keep it up the next 4 games and get into the playoffs.

Only McDumbass would draft this guy #12 overall. A player with no ELITE skills.

A lot of people in this thread don't seem to have any ability to assess running back play. They just want to look at his YPC and say "meh". The truth is that the guy produced a lot of yards after contact tonight. That is the true sign of quality running back play. Anyone can get yards when no one is hitting them.

If Willis did this you'd be licking his nuts and talking about what a tough guy he is, getting all the tough yards. Why cant you just give the guy credit, he did a nice job tonight (and had 44 receiving yards as well). No one is calling him Marcus Allen, but it was a good game

It wasnt like he was going to drop to the 6th round. Everyone had him as a first round back. Hardly the first, 1st round pick not to be a superstar. But at least he's still relevant to the Broncos

I think he played a good game tonight. But I dont think "whoever" needs to eat crow as described by OP. This was one of his best games, but I believe, on 32 carries vs the Raiders with our line he should have done MUCH better.

Here's the point:

People on this board have constantly questioned his toughness, drive, all that. And today he played TOUGH. Can the Moreno haters at LEAST give him today and not move the goal posts for once?
