I am tired of all this talk about how poorly Knowshon Moreno did! Lets compare the facts!!
MORENO carried the ball 241 times but FUMBLES 1 TIME - 1 fumble per 241 carries...
Hillman carried the ball 55 times but FUMBLES 2 TIMES - 1 fumble per 27.5 carries...
Ball carried the ball 120 times but FUMBLES 3 TIMES - 1 fumble per 40 carries...
When a player fumbles every 27.5 carries or every 40 carries the yards per carry mean much less.
MORENO 4.3 Average - Ball 4.7 Average Hillman 4.0 Average
WHICH IS BETTER?
MORENO received the ball out of the back field 60 times for 548 yards
Hillman received the ball out of the back field 12 times for 119 yards
Ball received the ball out of the back field 20 times for 145 yards
Hillman's average is a little better until we consider the fumbles!
MORENO 9.1 Average - Ball 7.3 - Hillman 9.9
WHICH IS BETTER?
Which is the Best Blocker for the Quarterback ? MORENO
All the Big Talkers are saying Moreno was only good this past year?
MORENO despite being injured has played in about 75% of the Broncos games between 2009 - 2013.
MORENO'S Average per carry is 4.1 out of 845 attempts for 3,468 yards. MORENO"S Receptions Average
is 8.9 out of 157 for 1,401 yards. He has only fumbled 8 times out of almost 5,000 combined yards. If we were considering rushing attempts this would be 1 fumble every 105 rushes.
MORENO has had some decent years. In 2009 he rushed for 947 yards, in 2010 he rushed for 779 yards.
MORENO IS NOT A CHUMP!! We need to bring MORENO BACK before he signs with another team!! Today as it stands MORENO is our best Running Back - Receiver out of the back field and Blocker for the Quarterback.
A few days ago I wrote a blog Consider The Price! If MORENO can be resigned for around 1.5 million we should jump at the chance. We should not try to head back to the Super Bowl with having at least one experienced Running Back.
Several days later I wrote another blog KNOWSHON DESERVES BETTER! The comments that were posted on that blog were so anti Moreno and so mis-informed so in this blog we lock at the stats to see who is the better running back.
