I don't know what this whole "Get over it" concept is. I'll be pissed about that play twenty years from now. It was inexcusable and humiliated the whole team.

Yeah, I'm not going to pretend like everything is hunky dory the next time he makes a decent play either. Which I'm sure the fan police will break out with a "for those of you that doubted Rahim Moore" thread the next INT the kid gets. Screw that, he's responsible for the greatest individual **** up in Bronco history. He could have a 7 INT year in 2013-2014 and I'd still be pissed. Honestly, I hope the team unloads him in the off-season.

I would never allow myself to be so shortsighted as to judge a person based on one play. Body of work will always take precedence for me. Not to mention, as much as that play stands out, one play was not the reason for a loss, did that play keep us from sealing a win, yes. There was also an entire football game played, and plenty of blame to go around. It is silly to pin it one one player.

Yeah well, good for you being all rational and well-reasoned, but don't expect us superior fans to react the same way!.

I can't stand Rahim Moore and wish we hadn't drafted him.

Same was said about the replacement refs for about 24 hrs after that debacle in Seattle. Until the real refs were suddenly re-signed "out of the blue".

No. But the rest of your posts scattered around includes everyone else. Especially Fox. If only you hated those 2 the OM wouldn't give you a such a hard time.

Look, there is just no Objective way to look at this. I thought I was over it too, but I could not watch a damn thing leading up to the SB. The Kid blew it and its not like he was anywhere near replacement value as a FS either during the season. Not exactly what you want to see out of a second round, first Safety drafted type of player with 32 starts in 2 years.

I am trying to not hate on the kid for One play, so I went back and looked at his season and wanted to find the plays he made to help this defense. There simply were not many. Maybe 3 above average plays all year. I just wanted to see the good that all the people say they saw all year long. I did not get to break down every game during the season like I normally do, and I wanted to prove this kid was more than the limited things I remembered poorly about him.

He is an average NFL safety right now, who is not the solid Center Fielder with Instincts he was drafted to be. He is still too damn slow Mentally to take advantage of his physical tools at the NFL level after 2 years. I do the numbers with guys like him, and very few suddenly wake up mentally at that position and become elite players after 3 years. CB's do mentally make that leap much more often than safety's.

I want to beleive in this kid, but I can not find one redeeming quality in his play right now to hang a hat on.

Whoever made the decision to take a knee (Fox or McCoy) did a lot more damage, than Rahim Moore. Moore made a bad play. Taking a knee is akin to surrendering...

That's just it. His body of work is mediocre at best. He was injured/benched as a rookie. He improved in his 2nd year, but it's not like he was this dynamic playmaker either. He's a serviceable player who committed the biggest screwup in franchise history. He's our Earnest Byner, only Earnest Byner was a pro-bowler and actually an above-average player.

His body of work is incomplete, this was his first full time starting season, and showed marked improvement. Before that moment, his growth was considered a very bright aspect to Denver's future. As egregious as that error was, it doesn't change those things. He isn't suddenly no longer young and improving. He wasn't suddenly a liability all year. He is a young player who screwed up at a big moment. That doesn't have to be his legacy, he manned up about it and is taking it on the chin. I look forward to seeing how he responds. Maybe he washes out and you guys can hold all that hate in your little hearts forever and feel justified. I'm letting it go.

I went back and watched the game. It's truly amazing how many retarded plays Denver made throughout the course of that game, along w/ the officials just blowing it. Obviously, Rahim Moore's **** up looks even worse in hindsight. Matt Prater's screwup on the FG kick was really bad as well. Peyton Manning is not absent of responsibility either. That Stokely pass was WIDE open that got picked in OT, and he short armed it to the only place the CB could have caught it.

The crazy thing to think about is HOW MUCH BETTER DENVER was than Baltimore, the eventual super bowl champions. We smoked them at home and if not for a bunch of bull****, we would have smoked them in the playoffs too. Look at the 1st two TD's for Baltimore, they get bailed out on 3rd and 8 at their 8 on their 2nd drive of the game by a STUPID PI call on Tony Carter. They threw an incompletion, would have had to punt there, with Holiday, we probably get that kick at worst around the 50. That's a 10-14 pt swing. Look at the NO CALL on the PI on Decker where he got hit in the back before the ball got there, bounces up and Baltimore catches it for a pick 6, possibly another 10-14 pt swing there.

Just really unbelievable. We should have trounced these guys and if the refs hadn't been the great equalizer, it would not have even been a game. Add in the pressure Denver had to perform in bad weather, officials calling it sideways, two startings HB's out of the game w/ injury and a bunch of bogus PI calls, non calls, holding calls, non-holding calls (look at the 2nd Torrey Smith TD catch before halftime, where Von Miller gets headlocked by the RT, BULL**** NO CALL), we should have beaten Baltimore. Just really a mother****er all the way around looking back on it.

Pretty solid tackler? At least vastly improved from his rookie year.

I agree, but I don't think he'll start next year.

If I had full control:

Champ would move to free safety.
Carter would start at strong safety
Harris would move to the first safety option (Champ's spot). I think Harris is a pro-bowl talent.
Carter/Bolden would compete for the other safety, with the loser coming in at Nickel.

Moore would be the dime safety or possibly even the nickel corner against certain teams.
