Default Omon ? Where did he come from.

I have to say this dude is a baller. I have never even heard of him. He looked way better then Knowshow and Slowball. Where did he come from ?

I had to look him up last night. Everyone was calling him a kid, but he's not really. He's bounced around a bit.

Which made me more skeptical that we were just seeing some really ****ty run d. But the next couple weeks should help flesh that out.

He's bounced around and granted showed a little, but I have doubts he is someone you ever want to play much. But I like him more than Ball though, but not over Moreno.

Moreno couldn't get it done last night against the #2's. I have been pretty easy on him but come on, he was a high first round pick. I say he doesn't make the 53. I would rather have J.J. or "The Kid " .

He kinda reminded me of the MJD style runner. I liked it.

Isn't SWMS where Rod Smith went?

Knowbody would be an improvement over Knowshow so even if this guy turns out to suck it would be a cheaper suck, no?

He looks like he has a knack for breaking tackles, I always love to see that.

Well, with Hillman, they may look for a bigger back to be behind him, so Moreno could very well be on his way to the Pats.

Moreno is not looking good. Ball is going to make the team.

The drafting of Hillman probably meant the end for Moreno in Denver.

Wasn't he, along with Ball, with Buffalo when Studsville was there or something?

I think so. He's bounced around the league quite a bit. He looked good in the one padded practice I was able to attend.

I remember seeing the draftguys (Cecil Lammey & other dude) profile when he came out. They had marked him with someone with a lot of potential per their assessment. However, he hasn't really earned opportunities to show anything since then.

I thought Knowshon looked pretty good for his first game back. Wouldn't mind seeing McGahee, Hilman, Moreno and Omon be our RB's.

Rod went to Missouri Southern in Joplin, MO(SW Corner), Xavier went to Northwest in Maryvile, MO (about an hour north of KCMO), both play in the same conference. Omon was a baller in college (yes I know, its Div II) but I was kinda hoping he'd end up in Denver back in 08 even though he played for a rival school.

Omon appears to be a slightly better Lance Ball. He ran with good vision, but he didn't seem particularly explosive. He's a last back on the roster type at best.

Article on the Denver Post said the same thing as did Evans and Klatt this morning. Nothing crazy, just looked pretty good as far as getting 4-5 yards a carry

Huh? Moreno averaged 5ypc against the 2's and Omon averaged 5.1 against the 3's and insurance salesmen. I mean Omon looked just fine, but he wasn't any more effective overall than Moreno last night.

Is this another one of those....I just think he LOOKS better to me deals?

also:
Moreno in his first 2 seasons:
219 carries 958 yards 4.4ypc
48 catches 473yds 9.9ypc

Oman:
11 carries 27yds 2.5ypc
0 catches

Of course Oman did play for the offensive powerhouse of Buffalo, probably was hard to get on the field.

Moreno may not be a superstar, but I find it hilarious that people think he is just a scrub

See that's the problem I have with it. Slowshown should just tear it up against the 2 nd team D. Not worth the money and also he can only make it 2 or 3 games before he goes down. I think he has been given more then a fair chance and he failed.

2nd team O blocking for him. That has to be taken into account as well.

So Moreno in his first game since tearing his acl middle of last year and doing ok against 2nd stringers with our ****ty second string OL means he's worthless but Omon doing about the same against third stringers means he's worth keeping.

Sound logic there.

If healthy Moreno is easily in the top three backs on this roster. If we keep a deadbeat like Ball over him we'll end up regretting it.

I say if Knowshow gets considerable PT the next 3 games and stays healthy and is effective keep him. But if his vagina gets hurt again see if we can trade him, if not cut him.

No. I think it's a hangover from the "he was drafted by Satan" days.
