Why do that? So I can watch everyone here criticize him for rookie mistakes.

If he was scratched for the game, I doubt it unless it is to duplicate what Moreno cannot do. If not, Ball is #2.

I wish I could see one thing that Moreno can do better than Ball

Like it or not, we won't see Hillman until they're confident he can pick up the blitz.

Pity, because Moreno absolutely ****ing sucks as a runner.

All the RB's are looking slow and lousy. We needed a spark.

While he didn't look fast, McGahee had 113 with 2 rushing TDs and several big runs. I wouldn't really say he looked "lousy. Also got those numbers in a game in which they were playing from behind for the entire game.

All of them?

McGahee went for over 100 yards and 2 TD's with over 5 yards a carry!!

Hillman should be the prototypical change of pace back, give him 5-10 touches a game.

McGahee is still a beast...maybe lost a couple of steps but the power, hitting the holes and breaking tackles is still there.

Absolutely blitz pickup will matter, protecting Manning is a huge part of our RB's job description.

If it wasn't Hillman would be in there already.

Knowshon has 8 carries for 15 yards on the season.

He sucks immensely as a runner.

Moreno has been largely invisible his whole career. Barring a few spikes in production vs. the Chiefs, he has done so little it is something of a headscratcher that he keeps getting on the field. I think even his most ardent of supporters have abandoned ship now.

Does Denver have an ELITE runner? No

Has Willis done a very good job? Yes

Would love to see Hillman get into the game somehow. Is it his youth and inexperience? has to be. He just turned the legal age of drinking the other day.

It's amazing... some of you have been watching football for how long and still haven't come to the realization that running the ball is not just about the RB.

Moreno is pretty horrible. He dances too much and doesn't have the power to consistently move the pile after he's danced himself in a tight spot.

Ball should be the clear #2 at this point. At least he can hit a hole and fall forward for a few yards.

Fun Fact: the little black girl in this video is a young Knowshon Moreno.
