Poor little thing.


He needs to run behind a lead blocking FB out of the I-formation within a zone blocking scheme. Moreno running behind Larsen as a lead blocking FB would bring back memories of TD & Griffen.

One of my favorite Broncos of all time.

McD is too fond of the 3wr/2 TE set.

BTW, as stupid as Hillis is, remarkable he learned the playbook as a FB and was thrust into TB thru injury.

Shouldn't of he have looked lost and hesitant?

Or is McD's scheme that more complex?

Frankly, Childress and Peyton have more imaginative schemes.

Do you watch the games, dude? He's not remotely soft. He was running over mother****ers last week.

Last week was an improvement to what we've seen in previous weeks, there's no doubt. But like I said, the consistency hasn't been there, and during our four game skid, he was either invisible or a liability.

Also, Hillis is bulked up 20 pounds over his ideal weight.

Moreno isn't soft as much as ineffective he is running out of an empty backfield. You put Moreno in the last 5 games running mostly from the I-formation with a lead blocking FB (Larsen) from a stretched zone blocking scheme, and Moreno-Larsen will remind you of TD-Griffin. Bet on It!

The Giants 7 line isn't what it was, and Moreno had his best game BY FAR last week.

e finally showed some speed. Maybe his knee is finally good whih is good news. H wasn't running all that well earlier. Yeahj yeah, put Stephen Jackson behind Holstien and Clady.

Also, I think the move to Holstien opened up the left side fo us.

In fact, it's obvious.

McD would have put Howard Griffith on special teams as well.

So, who do you guys think blocks better at this time... in this system?
Hillis or Moreno?

Pass blocking?

Moreno.

Moreno was a complete back at UGA, and I think he's progressing nicely.

Seriously, I've never seen such knob-slobbering over a guy like Hillis who had one great game and two decent ones over a year ago. Get over it, he's not gonna get playing time barring injury (just like last year). He was a flash in the pan, and we'd all be better off if these play Hillis threads disappeared from the world, much like the Twilight Saga.

You, my friend... do not understand the depth of this conspiracy.

Moreno now has around 688 yards rushing.

He will break 1,000 yards his rookie season -- and could surpass 1100 yards.

I expect him to come on strong in the final games.

If he does, that would be great. I rarely expect a rookie to come on stronger in December than he was in October though.

I think all he is saying is do you trust Shanahan or McDaniels or Turner to evaluate who is better suited to carry the ball? If you answer yes to any of those three then STFU if not I can't help you.

So is Hillis the best RB to not start a game this year in the NFL?

Of course it was expected Moreno would get the carries as the #12 pick. He should till proven a bust.

Good grief...but when a stif like Jordan does in Hillis role....

No, but most people aren't saying that he should be starting but rather being used in the rotation.

He's going to be a bust!
He's going to fumble at the same clip Cutler threw interceptions here, and most of you are going to categorize his fumbles based on why they happened in order to deviate attetion to something else rather than blaming the guy himself.
Sounds familiar?

Stop whoring this guy and even comparing him to Emmitt Smith? !
Are you freakin' nuts?
The guy is too slow.

That's correct.
Hillis needs to be given a chance to help out anemic offense.
There are a lot of things this kid can do on the field that most of our current RB's can't do half as good...

Emmitt Smith was never considered a burner. He ran a 4.7 40. Knowshon ran a 4.6.

Yeah I hear you.
That means in practice Hillis is doing even worse.

It's funny seeing people like you assume you know what's best for the team when you aren't even at the facility. You probably really think that Hillis is awesome and just hasn't gotten a chance. He gets a chance every day in practice and since he doesn't play ST well and he doesn't remember the plays week to week they don't dress him.
