I respectfully disagree with Mr. McGahee.

I see a running back by committee next year, and I think Moreno is going to have a breakout year.

C'mon, man. You can't be serious.
"With Peyton coming to Denver, I don't have to worry about nine defenders in the box," McGahee said.

I will go on record saying the same. Moreno will have his best season by far this year.

McGahee, Hilman, Moreno and another camp guy makes the team - Fannin, Johnson or Ball.

None of them will go over 1,000 yards rushing, but I see three of them going for over 500.

Moreno might go over 1,000 all-purpose yards including receiving.

Do you know he will be healthy enough to not lose his job? McGahee is correct on having the box stacked and it should be much easier to run through the line. McGahee doesn't need to be pounded like last year when he is over 30 years of age.

I'm looking forward to this offense. This article comments that Manning does not want to throw it as much as he used to and this makes sense, that is, Manning doesn't want to have to be the entire offense.

Single back sets baby!

I like it. Fannin 230 plus with 4.37 speed. Dude needs to stay healthy to give himself a chance.

I think Moreno's skill set is perfect for our Manning lead offense.

I don't know how you can make this statement. Moreno has shown nothing but a tendency to drive irresponsibly and get hurt. These are the only current truths.

Mcgahee with Manning will give defenses a very unique challenge in that they have to plug the middle or have Mcgahee haul it for 5 or 6 yards consistently, putting us on 2nd and short situations which is something you never want with Manning, but on the other hand you need to put pressure on Manning or flood the backfield to keep him from completing passes as he wishes.

Moreno has a very interesting skillset to play with Manning in that he blocks well and catches very well and can run, but don't write off Mcgahee for a second or he will be there to punish people.

One thing is for sure this is Moreno's make or break season - His last chance to stay on the field and play to his skill level.

There's no doubt about that. I'm gunning for him but the glass man needs to show up. He's fun to watch when he's playing and not dancing.

I would not be shocked to see Hillman have more total yards then any other RB on the roster this season. Outside of depth I see no reason to keep NoShow around any more.

I think it will be cool to just see a pass on first down every once and awhile. Running it up the gut on first was incredibly boring and predictable last year.

i don't think the totals are going to go up for our running game, however, i believe the yards per carry is going to jump up a lot. our running game won't be as much of a focus going forward, but it is going to be more explosive, because of the defensive alignments the opposition will be playing to get Peyton off the field.

so now instead of seeing 40 runs a game at a 4ypc average, we will probably be seeing 20 runs a game for a 5.5 - 6ypc average.

This! He's been hurt every year...won't be surprised if he gets hurt in camp or at some point in preseason. Hope he does have a break out year...i've given up on him so it'll be a nice surprise if he does.

McGahee should be able to rush for 1,200 yards like Addai did in 2006 with a 2 TE set (Tamme, Dreessen).

I look for Hillman to get 100-150 touches as well.

Both RB's should be able to catch about 40 balls each.

I'm not sure where Moreno fits into the equation.

Moreno gets his 20 carries before he blows a tire and is on ir.

I've mentioned it elsewhere but the other current truth is his capacity to dance and that does nothing but piss me off on game day, Shanny style. "Pick a spot and hit it! You ballerina whore!"
