Actually I recall a lot of comparisons to Darren Sproles being made. I'm not remotely seeing Sproles or Bush type of ability or impact.

Montee Ball moves from 1A to 1 -- for now

http://espn.go.com/blog/afcwest/post...a-to-1-for-now

Quote:
Running backs coach Eric Studesville and offensive coordinator Adam Gase have consistently said pass protection, handling the audibles in the offense without mistakes and hanging on to the ball will rank more highly than actually running with the football when the team makes the rotation at running back.

Hilman was drafted to be a complimentary back. As been said in many posts on this thread and others, he is "starting" in preseason because Ball hasn't been ready and they already know what they have in Knowshon.

Ball will be the starter soon enough. But in the meantime allow me to share another quote from Fox in the same PC that some of the haters conveniently forgot to mention:

"Look, Ronnie Hillman is going to play a lot of football. You can put that in the bank," Fox said after practice Monday. "There's no formula where that's not going to happen."


Txtebow, " This is coach speak, what he is really saying is he will play a lot for the Calergy Stampede ".

...Ball, on his second rep as the Broncos' starting tailback Monday, whiffed on Shaun Phillips, who was rushing in from left end as Peyton Manning dropped back to pass. Lance Ball took the third rep as Montee Ball was called over to running backs coach Eric Studesville for a little chat.

It wasn't the first time Montee Ball whiffed on a block. There was the preseason game at Seattle two weeks ago when Ball missed a blitz pick up and Manning got drilled. Even with Manning at quarterback, a missed blocking assignment isn't quite as devastating as, say, fumbling the ball away in back-to-back games and having both returned for touchdowns.

But closer than fans might think.

You are going to look so silly in a few weeks. We are fine at RB. More than fine. A;l three will have their role.
Gameplan, no gameplan. The guy has the dropsies and deserves to be in the dog house.

Don't read anything into Montee Ball taking the first-team tailback reps Monday, the Broncos' coach said.
Naturally, with an estimated 19 million people setting their Fantasy League rosters this week, Fox's heed was ignored.
So who was the Broncos' primary first-team running back during practice Tuesday? Ronnie Hillman.
"I don't even know yet, so I don't know how you all know," Fox said about who the Broncos' starting running back will be this season. "They'll both carry a big load for us this season, knock on wood. Whether it's '1A' and '1' or however you want to list it, they're both very capable and we're very pleased with both."

But we got Harry Truman over there on the sideline sticking to his conservative ways. I wonder if Fox eats the same cereal every morning.

Boo. Could you imagine a Bill Parcells or Belichick or, Jimmy Johnson ever saying something like this after how these running backs performed in the preseason? Hillman especially. Thats why Fox has never won ****. He needs to put the fear in these guys. We're going to be relying on both heavily.

The sproles/Bush comparison was BS to begin with. Anyone who watched him in college would know this.

Maybe Fox is going to trade for DeAngelo Williams.

Supposedly Ryan Williams is available for a 7th round pick? Is he worth a gamble?

RONNIE HILLMAN IS A PEDESTRIAN RUNNING BACK AND FUMBLER.

THANK GOODNESS!
I thought it was txtebow as in 'Text Tebow.'
But then I went to make a joke about txthillman>txtebow and realized it probably means Texas Tebow.

Like from the Lonestar state.
