McGahee Placed on IR



Well, it's now official. Willis McGahee has been placed on season-ending injured reserve. Time for the next man up. The question now is, who will be that man? Who will step up into the void and make plays? Personally, I think Moreno is going to surprise a lot of people.

I have not been a fan of Moreno to this point. His career has seemed to me to be a microcosm of the Josh McDaniels era. Fast start (nearly 1000 yards in his rookie year) followed by an implosion and the bust label being placed on him. Part of that is his unfortunate injury history, but the good news here is that since he hasn't played since week 2 (and only sparingly before that), he is well rested and completely healthy for the first time since his rookie year.

This will also be a good opportunity to see what we really have in Hillman. I doubt he has the durability to be a feature back, but then you never can tell. After all, Barry Sanders as an example, was very undersized.

Even if our rushing production cannot recover from this loss, I am not overly worried. We must remember, Manning has had tremendous success even leading teams with last-ranked rushing attacks. And if we get Kuper back, that will only help. I don't know about you, but I am very tired of watching Manny Ramirez do his best imitation of a turnstile on the offensive line.

While necessity of placing Willis on IR is unfortunate, it will not be the end of the world. This team has shown flexibility and resiliency and an ability to adapt to the situation. And sometimes, the loss of a team leader causes the rest of the team to rally around them. Things still look bright for our Broncos, folks. Now, let's go make the Chiefs look silly. GO BRONCOS!!!!!
