At least Knowshon Moreno has fixed one of his two bad habits. In 2009 and 2010 every time Moreno had a decent play, he looked to the sidelines and asked to come out. Looking back at his days in George he did the same thing. I had a chance to talk to Floyd Little about it a year and half ago and I asked him what he thought about it and he kind of chuckled and said "we didn't do that back in the day, if you asked to come out you stayed out and nobody wanted to do that."
Late last year and briefly this year Moreno has done better in this area but mostly because Willis McGahee has replaced him in the starting line-up. My biggest beef with Knowshon today is his actions after every descent run (which isn't very often) or even worse if he gets into the endzone. If it was a game winning TD i can imagine some excitement but he does it on mediocre runs and random touchdowns. The Broncos could be down 31 points and Knowshon is popping off and doing crazy celebration antics.
These are the things you would want Mike McCoy to address when he isn't calling predictable offensive plays. This is also an opportunity for an experienced coach like John Fox to step up and teach the young man. I thought i was the only one noticing these ridiculous antics but i heard Alfred Williams mentioning it on the radio today as well.
Something bad is going to happen to Knowshon if doesn't grow up soon. He is going to cost the Broncos a penalty in an important game or get his head knocked off by a tough team (like the Lions) if he cannot control his taunting.
Note to self Knowshon, if your are not ahead in a game and losing badly don't celebrate small gains, medium gains, or long gains. On the rare occasion when you do get into the endzone (which is often for a number 12 overall pick) act like you have been there before.
I hope the coaches correct the problem before Ndamukang Suh does!
