We needed someone like him in his prime.

Downhill Power Runner like TD.

I was genuinely surprised by him in this game. The guy still has some gas in the tank apparently.

I eat my crow on this one.

Not only has he performed exemplary, he does a Mile High Salute after every TD.

I actually love the combo of these two backs. We probably need to get Moreno a few more touches per game to keep WM healthy, but hopefully he can play at this level for at least another year. Great to see us using POWER again!

The guy is actually getting better.

Watching him today with some of the zone blocks, his quick feet and how he still keeps his pads straight while making the cut and powers forward when tackled.

Damn, what a great signing.

Credit also Moreno for that fabulous TD run. Face it - -we have not used Moreno properly.

His strength is the great hands and catching the ball out of the back field.

This gets him into the open field where he is very elusive and dangerous.

Call him the 2nd back - -so what - who cares? The point is to exploit his skills in the open field.

Conversely I think Knowshon is some things he isn't. That's why I think it's a good pairing.

Moreno can still be a valuable asset to this team. I read a good article about people getting overly concerned with where guys were drafted, as opposed to the value they may still have to the organization. I'll try to dig it up.

Either way, both of them healthy spells a pretty nice combo, imo. Though, I do think WM will wear down at this rate. Got to find a way to give him some rest in games like this.

With a defender now having to spy on Tebow, I expect Moreno to do a better job now that our OL has improved significantly, but I wouldn't hold my breathe.

Hopefully, he gets healed up over the bye and starts playing better because he still dances too much to be effective. The guy has zero vision.

I remember back when Shannahan drafted Mo Clarett...watching McGahee and dreaming we'd have his shoes in orange one day. BOOOOOM! Love this guy!

Was I the only one that got pumped when Moreno bulldozed that safety near the goalline.. he appeared to be playing with a chip on his shoulder

That's the ticket.. Tebow makes the defense pause and after he's had two weeks to work as the unquestioned leader with the ONES I expect a crisper Tebow. Most of those passes weren't bad just need a little fine tuning with the WRs..

Tebow MUST learn to take snaps from center... I know its tricky but Hey .. it cant be THAT hard! Not for the money these guys make! Hopefully that gets tightened up with more work with Watson.

Anyway, there's no question Tebow sparked the entire team. Orton was like a three day old dead fish out there! Go Tebow .., lets see what you can do!

It is nice they had an actual running game. I had forgotten what one looked like.

First of all, it's Walton not Watson. And I tend to think the problem is mostly a lack of reps together. Walton is delivering the ball the way Orton is used to, and Tebow is expecting the ball the way Ramirez snaps it. At least there weren't any fumbles.

Yea, it's a shame we have to wait two weeks to see him again. On the upside, the staff has time to work on some passing plays he can execute. Great spark, great leader but his throws were not pretty. We'll need to find a way to keep defense honest, because they're going to start bringing the heat on him and stacking the line. That leaves plenty of stuff open for most NFL QBs. Hopefully Timmy can capitalize and make D's pay if they try to take away too much of the run.

I still think he has a problem hitting the hole sometimes. But definately looks like a good signing and will allow us to use Moreno as the change of pace guy which maybe he can handle.
