Trent Richardson 20 carries 3.6 YPC
Jamaal Charles 5 carries 0.8 YPC
San Diego as a team 20 carries for 1.6 YPC
Rashad Jennings 21 carries for 2.1 YPC
Michael Turner 11 carres for 3.0 YPC
Steelers as a team 20 carries for 2.7 YPC

YPC! The tell all stat!


That should shut the fools up, great post.

Listen up clowns KM is balling, giving this team his all.

Picking up blitzes, tough running and good for 20-30 yards a game

in passing.


O-line sucks lately, lets see how you do with no holes rarely and

sometimes a jail break in the backfield.

**** off....................

Oh yeah, let me also add that the 167 Yards Moreno had were the most yards from scrimmage anyone from the Broncos backfield this year.

Yeah, that means McGahee hasn't gotten this many yards in a game this year.

Good stuff
1. Its nice that Clark eventually did show up on that TD run because it was his damn fault that Moreno got wrapped up at the LOS when Clark failed to move his man out. He ended up pushing his defender who had Moreno wrapped while Moreno kept trudging forward.

2. On the first down reception Clark ran Moreno over when it looked like Moreno might have had the ability to break it back to the middle of the field and pick up more yardage.

Our line's run blocking was ****ing putrid last night. Moreno doing what he did was even more impressive thanks to their complete inability to open any real holes for Moreno. I can't recall a single running play where we had a blocker at the second level, but I can recall plenty where Moreno faced his first unblocked defender in the backfield.

Never dreamed I'd see Moreno with 32 carries in a game. Didn't throw a shoe. Didn't fumble. Didn't get gassed or gimped. Actually finished strong.

And this transformation happened while he was supposedly on the practice squad?



More likely:

Yea time to go to CVS and buy some chill pills, KM is doing a good job so far so good.

69 yards after contact. Good for 2nd most of any Bronco RB over the last 4 years.

He was awesome accept for a few blow assignments and being out of place a few time. I'm not ready to sign him to a long term contract tho. I want to see it play out before I make judgement.
Hopefully we can get a lead in these last few games so were able to spell him and keep him fresh for the playoffs.
Props again to the coaches. They kept this kid around and the benching seem to lite a fire , one and two kept him fresh. He's running as hard as an undrafted rookie at his first practice.

Moreno finally has got his head into the game. Gone is the showboating & pulling himself out every other play. Yes the light has finally gone on for Knowshon Moreno and he will get better by the week, oh he will have the odd bad play and maybe even a bad game but he is on his way to being a go to back.

I love how people love to use the overall team statistics of the opponent with zero context for their argument. Oakland has a terribly ranked run defense for the season...but lets look at some of the individual performances against the raiders this year...

T. Richardson: 20 carries 72 yards 3.6
R. Rice: 13 for 35 2.7
M. Turner: 11 for 33 3.3
R. Jennings/MJD: 22 for 50 2.3
Charles/Hillis: 9 for 27 3

They gave up huge busted games to Bush and Doug Martin (Martins 250 yards really skew the stats). Oakland is bad, but lets not pretend that they don't have the ability to clamp down on a runner, pro bowl runners as a matter of fact.

I have to say I'm starting to lighten up on the guy.

Great game despite Manny Ramirez getting repeatedly assraped while attempting to block air.

I still think he's (KM) getting his legs underneath him...

I loved the screen pass for 27 yards in the 1st...

Couple of days for the guys to rest up, heal the nicks up..feels good..bring on Edgar Allan Poe's favorite team...

Best preformance to date by Moreno. He still is beyond slow, and trips over himself, but he ran hard, didnt fumble and played the best game of his life. Good for him.
Still gonna wait on signing him to another contract though.
I am really happy he didnt showboat too. Just the stupid, wave his hand over his head thing, but thats perfectly acceptable considering.

This is why i keep preaching that DEN needs to address the O-line both in FA and in the draft.
Man, Ramirez sucks.

Three sacks on Manning and Richard Seymour didn't even play is not a good sign.

Not good enough I as told that if Denver does not average 4.0 ypc that the running game cannot win for us in the playoffs

j/k of course KM ran hard when it mattered.

This is what I've been trying to get across. Stick with the run. Up until the 4th qtr KM averaged less that 3.0 ypc but it takes a pounding on the defense especially with the hurry up and those 2 yard runs in the first turn into 6 yard runs in the 4th

This is why Willis' injury hurt the team cause he has the build and experience to pound the rock for 30 +

I hope KM can continue his success. He took quite a pounding last night with 30+ carries

Get in that tub Knowshown we need you

Not too bad, one was a clear blown blocking assignment by Ramirez, that happens with a backup lineman. One was Willis not adjusting his route to account for the all-out blitz, that happens with backup receivers and underscores just how important it is to have Thomas healthy. The last one was Manning slipping on the turf when he went to throw.

Clady did okay, Franklin had a few struggles when he was rushed wide, but seemed to adjust to it.

This is the time of year when you need your back ups to not miss assignments because they are gonna play with starters dinged up. They are not going to be all world but they need to know their assignments.

Moreno is averaging 24 carries, 91 rushing yards, and 29.3 receiving yards in three starts after Willis McGahee's season-ending injury.
You just can't argue with that. That's not spectacular but he's doing what the run game, absent an elite back in denver, has to do--create enough doubt in the defense that the play action is believable and effective. Overall, a good game by KM but the thing that still bothers me is that he's a liability in short yardage run plays. Defenses can cheat to pass defense because KM isn't enough of a threat to commit everyone up.

He ain't ever gonna be considered a guy who can break a long one but he's the best we've got and, assuming he stays healthy, can contribute.

Maybe he will stick around next year afterall

Thing I like the most is he isnt fumbling like Willis was

Pretty good game
Stepping up when called on
Not sure why he hasnt played before Willis got hurt though
Kind of wierd to just all of a sudden have him go from 4th string to bell cow

Moreno's performance was well, average.

32 carries for 119 yards is 3.7 ypc. That's very average.

BUT

On the last drive, Moreno was called upon to get first downs and keep the ball out of the raiders hands to kill the clock. And he came through.

2nd and 20? Draw play for 16 yards.

3rd and 1, first down for 2 yards.

This is also at the point in the game when the Raiders KNEW we were going to run. KNEW it and Moreno stepped up and got us enough yards to keep moving the chains.

Blocking up front was very sporadic throughout the game as well. On at least 4 of his 32 carries, the line had gotten blown up before he ever had a chance.

He still missed some holes, but he is running strong and in the clutch, when we needed him to move the chains, he did so.

Anyone bagging on that can eat a bag of *****.
