Here's the list.

Are you going to argue that Moreno is being above average? Seems to me everyone who has said he is being average are the most even minded evaluators.

That isn't a good thing.

You guys have to admit whether you love him or not Slowshon is the most unathletic athletic guy you have ever seen.

What I'll admit is we need him and he is getting the job done as well as McGahee was.

Running hard....quit your b****in and understand where we would be without him right now ?

It is a mystery. Maybe he has an inner ear problem.

I can't stand the guy, i'm over him. Had a good game last night but needs to do a hell of a lot more than 1 game for me to acknowledge that he's much more than a bum on this team.

Play out the rest of the year like last night and I may get out my plate and fork - till then.....

Moreno is doing exactly what Bobby Turner drafted him to do, be a solid all-around tailback. Moreno didn't mature right away, now maybe he's got the picture right.

A bum, eh? 20 TD's is a bum somehow in somebody's mind. Yeesh, Moreno is the highest TD per touch RB on the team.

Moreno has 20 TD's on 635 touches, McGahee 9 TD's on 454 touches. Do the math. Moreno has more TD's per touch.

I've been waiting for someone to post that stat. Now why doesn't Willis get to use his career body of work and Moreno does?

Because they're Denver Bronco tailbacks.

Jebus dude, I thought you would be intelligent enough to recognize that.

No it is not. But it does mean Knowshon is playing as well as one can expect, given our OL.

I want to see what Moreno can do with a healthy Kuper blocking for him.

I would like to see this as well.

Perhaps this extended week will allow us to see Kuper in Maryland in 8 days.

Good for KM. no more crappy touchdown celebrations. no more crappy first down celebrations like three weeks ago. just do your job like the third rounder he should have been and freakin work hard. when he scored that TD i watched him to see if he would celebrate like we were down 45 points to the raiders or be the anti cam newton. and Damn! the kid looks like he's learned. Three weeks ago he was passing the ball between his legs after a simple first down. Tonight(thurs) he did his job. he missed an assignment that got PM sacked but Owell it happens.

What does that have to do with his stats? You were arguing stats but it fits your argument better if you don't use Willis career stats. Stats from years ago mean nothing now for either one. Arguing with stats is flawed argument anyway and doesn't show whole story or Rating Bell would still be in the league.

By my count, we've had 5 OMany myths about Moreno obliterated in this thread and 5 "movings of the goalpost" by the haters.

Good stuff.

Okay....Career.

Moreno: TD every 31.75 touches

McGahee: TD every (well I'll be) 31.75 touches. Which includes years where he was the goalline back behind Rice.

Look how statistically not sucky Moreno is...unless Willis is equally as sucky.

Could we possibly move the goal posts any more?

First it's: Moreno should be out of the leauge, he's worthless, etc.

Now it's: He's no Adrian Peterson.

Well no sh*t. If that's our benchmark and anything less than being the absolute best RB in the NFL is a failure, then I don't know what to say to you. It's a moronic statement at best.

At some point there will be no avoiding the huge plate of crow sitting in front of some of these guys, DUI55 being at the head of the table.

Trolling has been DUI55's thing since he got here. No biggie. The guys hating on Moreno are clowns. They have been clowns since he was drafted.

Props to KM. Played a good game. He kept his feet under him for the most part. No turnovers and a lot of fight. I don't expect him to break a big one (he is what he is) just move the chains and that's what he did. I'd actually like to see him gain a little more weight.

I expect moreno to start breaking big runs actually. The tebow effect from last year will pay off. Decker and thomas are good blockers.
