    Besides the fact that I think he'll be a stud, our O-line was a big reason why I wanted Moreno. I once read a stat last year(don't remember where) that our RBs had an average of 4 yards before they were even hit, or something like that. That's almost exactly what our RB's YPC was. So I was worried that if we got even a semi-talented RB(Jordan, Buckhalter, and Arrington) they would do well and we'd keep passing on dominant RBs if we didn't get Moreno. Basically I'm saying that I think our O-line is so dominant that a talented RB to go along with it will be virtually unstoppable, and if Orton/Simms does well it will make him even more so.

    Disclaimer: I don't remember where I read that stat but I do remember it was actually recorded somehow.

      I don't recall the stat, but what I do know is that we had a solid YPC for an average bunch of hurt RBs. In fact, I was surprised how some of our backs gained so many yards some games, even some of the backups who I had little knowledge about. I remember Clady making some huge holes for our guys, and although they made some nice yardage, I felt like they could have broke a few more, just with some decent dekes and speed.

      So yes, I believe the holes were there, and I think some folks are going to capitalize big time this year.

        Yeah, I can't even remember who posted it, it was just some random article about how good our O-line was; but the fact that guys like PJ Pope came in and literally ran the Bills to pieces before getting injured is just proof of it.
