    Wait, wait, wait. The line blocked great for Knowshon and the same line (sometimes on the same series), blocked like crap for Ball? I think it's more along the lines that the interior run blocking was pretty mediocre (at best) for both backs, but KM got off the snap quicky, ran with vision and finished with authority while grinding out 2 and 3 yards and occasionally 8, or 9 yard runs. Ball on the other hand just sort of got dropped every time he touched the ball regardless of blocking.
    Maybe I am nuts, but if you look at where the play is designed to go and what happens in the blocking , it seems as if they call a majority of runs for Ball to go off left tackle, and most often there is nowhere to run, as the blocking is poor. Very few runs to the center or right, and when he has run to those areas, he is getting good yardage, or at least what you'd expect for a rookie.

    Moreno (and Hillman somewhat) have mainly gotten runs to the center and right side, and consequently have looked better. Moreno has made the most of it and definitely is seeing and reacting better, as he should. No question that he is the better back, for now.

    Perhaps Ball is not seeing the field, and running lanes as well, but he also is being handed a less favorable play call, as the offense isn't executing those left side runs well, at all. I pointed this same fact out in pre season...Ball always seemed to get a called run to the left side, and was stuffed then too.
    Of course Clady was out and Clark in then.

    Maybe someone on the line ( Or TE) is giving a TELL that other teams have picked up on on left side runs, but we have been poor at it no matter who is carrying the ball.

    Anyway, Ball is a Rookie, but I think he will do fine when it is all said and done.

      Well according to all the experts on here, CJ was the only RB that showed them anything in preseason, and he's the only RB we got that runs with power, speed, balance and vision....

        He also drafted the FB that you knob slobbered all over for two years and adopted, who actually turned out to be a bust

          Ball makes the "had a bad day" team:

          Running Back: Montee Ball, DEN (-2.9)

          We hate fumbles. They’re inexcusable to us and when you put the ball on the ground you start a big case for making this team. Throw in zero missed tackles and 1.3 yards per carry and Ball was a shoe-in.

                I'd set the over/under on 1200 combined rushing and receiving and 10 TDs. Anything over that would be gravy in this offense.

                    Huh. Never would've predicted this coming in from the offseason.

                      Med would have. And did.

                        Kudos to Knowshon and for Med for calling this.

                            Totes bust. Playoff wins are lame anyhow.

                              All that matters is that I was right. Lets be honest.

                                Denver's unsung hero is running back Knowshon Moreno, who is having a renaissance this season. He is keying their run game, is a demon in pass protection and shows up big in the screen game too.
