Moreno is running better than he's ever done. He doesn't dance behind the line, fights through traffic and really tries to fnish his runs hard.

Something we just didn't see him to before. Hope he's finally settled down into a consistant way of running because this can only be great for our offense and chances in the playoffs.

Keep reading people saying he doesn't dance in the backfield anymore....ever occur to you clowns that he no longer has to? He had to dance his first two seasons as the OL just wasn't as good as it is now.

Kept hearing about how he wasn't good enough to run between the tackles...but he had like 17 carries up the middle today.

Kept hearing how he would never be a 20+ carry RB...and he's not had fewer than 20 carries in any start after McGahee went down.

I'm gonna guess that some of you people just don't know a damn thing and like to perpetuate myths about a player you personally dislike because he celebrated a TD in a blowout loss...or was drafted with the 12th overall pick...or was drafted by a head coach you hated. Whatever your reason for hating on him is.....

And quite frankly, watching Knowshon shove it up your collective asses is actually kind of entertaining....

i have no problem with this at all. Lattimore,Bernard or Gillislee would be good to pick up in the draft to solidify the RB position and make it a luxury if we need to make a trade or let someone go for cap reasons.

i'm a Moreno fan but he has always loved to dance. it wasn't just the OL. he did that **** at Georgia and frustrated a lot of their fans because of it.
he loves to dance around and bounce it outside, he could get away with it in college because he's a heck of athlete. still looks to do it from time to time but in most cases he just does one cut and go.

Imagine a Peterson type back with Manning during his last couple of years and how much pressure it would take off Os when he takes over.

that's not going to happen, there hasn't been a Peterson type since Peterson.
a lot of people tried to compare guys to him but he's been the best in the NFL since he came into the league.

I love how he's playing but no reason to talk contract. He's still signed for 2013 and the Broncos have a club option for 2014. He's historically been an injury-prone player at a position that chews up players and spits them out. Ride him hard as long as he produces and if he continues to improve than maybe we have this conversation 1-1.5 years from now.

Exactly. A year from now the Broncos leverage will be basically the same, and the track record of Moreno will take a significant step forward.

He gets first crack at feature back in 2013 if you ask me, but beyond that lets see him keep earning it before we talk new money.

This could all be part of the Mayans' plan.

all it takes is one fumble or 70 yard performance against the Browns next week for a lot of you fillies to start beating the "dump Slowshon for a seventh and a corn dog" drum

Yeah, I guess Fox/McCoy fall into that category of clowns since Moreno was relegated to the garbage dump for most of this season.
