We are not running because we are not blocking. Seems to me that either Coach McDaniel has changed the blocking that was successful in the past years or the lineman are not doing their jobs or the years are catching up.
In my very limited knowledge of following the Broncos for forty years I would say that if we can't open the holes for a lighter back as Moreno, put in a back who is big enough to open his own holes. We need a Peyton Hillis or Lamont Jordan to gain one or two yards without a lot of blocking. The season is almost over and we are still running up the middle and cannot make one yard, Hello!!!! I think the average fan would say why not try it one or two times? Or maybe has anyone heard of passing on third or fourth and short.?
Shanahan used to run up the middle the same way Coach McDaniel is now doing and we were then as we are now very predictable. The other teams know that we are going to run Moreno . What in the hell is the mystery here. I am not negative I just want to win and I don't think our guys are getting the chance they deserve. We have a great group right now and they are not going to last forever. I want to give them a chance right now. These veterans see what is going on and they are human. They will soon lose their enthusiasm Maybe I am totally off base but this is what I see. Is there a way we could send a courteous letter to Coach McDaniel letting him know what the fan's are feeling or does he already know that? Thank you McManJoe
