Knowshon will be a valuable contributor as a 3rd down back. He isn't the bell-cow #11 draft pick that we thought we were getting but he can have a great role in the offense. I'm not giving up on him.
First let me get this out of the way: My opinion of Moreno's ability has nothing to do with where he was drafted. I could not give any less of a shit about that at this point. It was a stupid pick by McDaniels, but that really has nothing to do with how well he plays.
I have given Moreno the benefit of the doubt ever since he came into the league. Our run blocking has been shit since then, our skill positions have been highly unstable, our coaching staff has been almost completely turned over, and he has had injuries. All of these things will hamper a new RB even though it's a position that usually translates very well from college to the pro's.
For the first time in his career he is now in a position to succeed. There are no excuses. What you see is what you get...and he had a shit game. He is not running with authority. He is dancing behind the line, trying to find gaping holes that aren't going to appear. He is blowing his blocking assignments. In short he is showing us that he is nothing special.
Sure, it was just one game. It could have been just a bad start to the season for him. But he looks like shit out there. I want him to do something or get the **** off of my team.
