Yeah it was probably the right move, and I admit I didn't like it at the time. I still don't like the depth behind Ball... but Moreno got too much money from Miami to be a depth player.

I hope he bounces back and gets healthy. Wish every year he was here would've been as good as last year. I have no doubts our backs can reproduce his numbers, only concern would be pass protection.

Look, we never got high 1st round value out of knowshon.....but, somehow we squeezed 3rd round value out of him. We made the most of a very bad pick. He contributed, and so he wasn't a total bust. But, his lack of speed and vision were apparent.

Elway made the right choice in Moreno, agreed. however, the organization failed to solidify the position and we are an in tight spot behind Ball. I was really hoping they'd get rid of Hillman and pick-up a solid veteran to put in the rotation.

I wouldn't be surprised if we do pick one up when all is said and done. There are still a few available that would be more than adequate for the role we would need them to play.

Maybe we will bring Moreno back after Miami cuts him.

Using TD as a benchmark of coming back after a heavy workload isn't that good of a comparison.

Seriously? Because his career was ruined by injuries?

You're young enough maybe you could get on Denver's scout team in some entry level fashion. It is clearly a passion of yours and you have shown you have skills.

I just like to write for MHR when I can and talk football with you guys and my friends. I will leave the real deal stuff to the professionals, but I got a pretty good track record on RBs, nobody thought Sankey would be the top guy drafted, but that's what I had said to many in the OM draft and boooom.

t would just be nice at some point in time to get back near Denver so I can get closer access with SBN/MHR credentials, I mean hell, our boss Kyle at MHR got to go to the Super Bowl and we just started Broncos writing on our blogs for fun. . . anything can happen I guess.

I was terrible at football and I played RB. Way too small. Got jacked up. Scramblebrains. Liked reading the books on schemes and stuff like that, plus watching people develop in college to the pros is really fun. Hard to believe my first real draft experience is when we passed on Steven Jackson for DJ Williams. Seems like ages ago.
