      I was hoping he would turn into Sproles but can't complain if he's a spiller

        Is he? Hillman had a good game, but Moreno has had several better. Don't go overboard with hyperbole just because you're inexplicably biased against him.

          I dunno, I'm not sure if Hillman is quite the athlete as Spiller. He's also not quite as big. He definitely has a similar skillset though, and I'm excited going forward after seeing what he did tonight.

            Knowshon=inactive. Hillman=2nd string and 3rd down back.

            The coaching staff disagrees with you.

              Hillman: a good third round pick. :thumb:

                Hillman does what looks to be a hop step when he cuts, which forces him to start from 0 and get to 60 fast...something that sometimes gives defenders time to grab him before he can get upfield.

                That said, I think they can have similar roles.
                LT made the jump cut famous, not surprised to see Hillman emulating him at all. Also Willis McGahee does it all the time

                  He is going to grow in this offense and eventually figure it out to become a solid RB for us. I love the potential he brings as our #2.

                      He played great tonight. He's rookie still he will grow and improve with time. Hillman needs make one cut, and go instead of bouncing outside.

                          Sure, it was the Broncos' O against the Saints' D, but it was also the Broncos' D against the Saints' O. Tonight was a dominant team effort, ST included.

                            Spiller could be the best all around back in the NFL if he didn't have to split carries with fred jackson

                              Ronnie had a heck of a game. I don't think that he is there yet regarding Spillers explosive speed, but he defintely has the potential. He needs to hit it up north, and just get those yards. But, he is a rookie and it will come to him.

                                If you would have watched Knowshon & CJ/Ronnie in college, you would defintely know that Knowshon never had the speed that CJ/Ronnie has.
