Most of his runs were obvious running plays. He was at his best in the 4th on obvious running downs when the defense had atleast 8+ in the box. Add to the fact that our offensive line is not a good run blocking line. Alot of times they get blown off at the snap.

He did show some toughness and didn't dance or get injured. Props to him for a solid workman type effort.

He showed good vision, and made the right cuts. Anyone that watched him closely running the football would realize this.

I dont hate Moreno at all, dont hate him for anything. Just dont think he is a starting running back in the NFL. He had a good game.

The only thing they watch is the NFL website, waiting for them to calculate the YPC so they can say, "See! He sucks!"

This was a good effort by Moreno. No turnovers, some good hard running. Many of the stuffs were on the line rather than on the RB. He did miss one blitz, but overall, he played pretty dang well. Good catches, some strong runs especially late in the game. He can't help that the Raiders are last against the run, he did his job today. That's all you can ask.

I agree, he had a lot of yards after contact on many of his touches. He did have a nice game. Seriously, he is overdue for an injury. Has he ever gone 3 straight games with 20+ carries without getting dinged up? That is my biggest issue with him. Durability. Sometimes he lacks aggressiveness in hitting small holes, but his dancing does tend to make first defender miss. It is good he has played as well as he's had, because, Denver is really thin at rb right now.

People talking about "average" game really either don't know **** about football or they're just completely biased against Moreno.

Since when does an RB get 167 offensive yards have an average game? Where in the NFL do you get 167 offensive yards and get graded an average game? Since when does a running back who has 4 plays in a game of 15 yards + get tagged with an average game?

Yeah, there are definitely a bunch of morons on this forum.

The sports posters and football themed bed sheets are living proof of that, aren't they boy?

Lots of guys in this thread do not understand what they are watching.

Moreno had a very good game in spite of;

Trying to run on a shiity field

Having defenders meet him in the back field due to poor line play.

Playing on the scout team and not having the advantage of practicing in this evolving offense. new stuff every week.

Getting tough yards and first downs when everyone in the stadium knew he was going to get the ball.


Unlike McGahee secured the ball all game long.

Km had a wonderful game too bad some here are unable to understand & appreciate it.

I like him in the passing game. I hope he continues to have games like this. I would love for him to turn his career around.

Moreno provided the balance you need in a road game. He did his job. He did not fumble. He got tough yards when they were needed. I dont see the point of a 3 year old argument.

So as I said before. Good job on a short week, Knowshon. Rest up. Ravens game is going to be tough.

He broke 100 yards despite the run blocking on the right side of the line sucking penis all night.

He played very well....especially on that last drive. However a "great" run for Nowshon is 10yds. That's the downside!

But, is he as good as Joseph Adai or Donald Brown....heck yeah!

3.8 yards per carry is below average.

You should work on your reading comprehension. By me calling you Captain Obvious, I was actually agreeing with your detailed analysis of Moreno being average. You can say what you want about the players. Just dont be surprised when someone calls you out.

I am not saying Moreno had a poor game. It was very workman like. Nothing special but he helped the team win. Moreno did kinda play like the whole team tonight. Very workman like, nothing special but got a nice victory.
