Default A late-season spark from Ronnie Hillman?

Saw this quote from Adam Gase on DenverBroncos.com, thought it was interesting:

“I’d love to get – whether it’s Ronnie or C.J. – and get them both going,” Gase said. “If they can take a few carries off both of those guys, that would be great because they do bring a little different dimension. Ronnie brings an explosion that we don’t really have with anybody else. And if we can give him a couple of opportunities a game, that would be helpful to the offense.”

I'm guessing we'll see Ronnie Hillman tote the ball several times against the Raiders -- hopefully, he'll have learned the same lessons from his season in the doghouse that Knowshon did last year.

When should the Knowshon experiment have ended? He was labeled a bust for most of 3 years. Give Hillman a chance and see what the kid can do with some time and another offseason or two.

We all know whats going to happen when he touches the ball, its like a bad rerun. If you want to give him a chance, fine, let it be in a couple years after this play-off run is done.

People said the same thing about Knowshon.

Knowshon benefited so much learning from McGahee maybe Hillman is learning his lesson too behind Knowshon never write off a guy like Hillman hes got speed to burn and if it ever clicks for him he can be a weapon.

I just don't want to see him again, especially this year.

Just found out my Step Sister has been hanging with Ronnie Hillman and DT pretty much every weekend for the past five months. No joke, she said he took the benching really hard and refuses to ask about. Also said that DT isn't as cool since he got big. She's got so many photos of her, Hillman and random other Broncos hanging in clubs and whatnot. Pretty crazy. I guess he's a "sweetheart" - whatever that means.

Actually, Hillman was pretty good in our last playoff game:

22 carries, 83 yards rushing
3 catches for 20 yards
0 fumbles

Hillman was out when we needed him the most that game. Our season ended with Hester and the 8 carries for 11 yards....a first down could not be had when we needed it the most. Sorry no nostalgia for Hillmans performance that game or any of the crap we've seen this year. Just stay wherever you are Hillman, see you next year (hopefully not).

I believe Hillman was the youngest player in the NFL last year and Rahim Moore the year before that. Kids that young need a bit more rope. If Hillman can stop the fumbling **** he has the ability to be very good for us.

Knowshon has been labeled as a "bust" by almost everyone here, including myself. Let the kid work out his fumbling issues, who know how much he can contribute next season.

Writing off Hillman is stupid. I am glad he got benched and I am perturbed that they did not give Anderson any carries but if they put Hillman in I hope he does great.

I'd rather see Hillman get the ball more in the passing game. Hopefully he's cured his fumbling issues since not only is his Bronco career on the line, so is his NFL career. Smallish backs with fumbling issues don't get many more opps.

Correction, Moreno was out when we needed him most, hence the increased playing time of Hillman. Hillman played admirably for a rookie in a tough situation.

I'm shocked they have waited so long to come up with this. There should be about 3-5 plays per game that we get Hillman the ball in space. Whether that's from a screen pass, he flexes out wide, takes a delayed handoff or toss.

It would add another wrinkle to the offense that Defenses would have to account for. There isn't a home run hitter in the backfield. I also wouldn't have a problem giving Holliday 2-3 snaps with the offense per game, to attempt to get him the ball. Imagine a screen or a pick play where Holliday crosses the field, that could be a quick 6.

Absolute support this. I would love to see Hillman get at least some carries before the post season, you never know what is going to happen and we may need him. Plus, Raiders.

CJ and hillman, their run prowess is SECONDARY and insignificant !
if they cant be relied on to protect PFM, then they do not belong on the field !
let them play this sunday while protecting BrocO.
if they can do that, then maybe they can see some action in the play-offs.

I dont want to see PFM laying on the ground because they wanted to give one of our back-ups a dress rehearsal.
If hillman cant read a blitz and make a block i dont give a rats arse if he runs a 40 in 3.9 !
