    I think Hillman but the others will be rotated in because he isnt the kind of back to shoulder the entire load.

      Hillman will probably be the first back in the game, but I'd bet Moreno gets more touches

        It's got to be Moreno. He'll share carries with Hillman, with Ball sprinkled in in certain cituations when Moreno is winded. That is if Moreno does decent and doesn't screw the pooch right out of the gate.

          I have a bad feeling old man Fox is gonna go with Ball, which would be a mistake if you ask me.

              Agree with you. He's decent but doesn't or hasn't shown any wow moments

                At KC last year, Ball came off the bench after McGahee and Moreno went down and rushed for 96 yards. Moreno was 13 ypa when he left the game. Team rushing was 244. I think the Broncos, including Moreno and Ball, have a clue about how to run on KC, plus they now have a serious passing attack.

                  I expect Hillman to start, but also expect to see Ball out there just as much. I dont think for a second Moreno starts, but I would like to get him in the rotation and see a significant number of snaps.

                    My pick and who I think is going to start are two different things... I think that Ball will start.

                      While Ball is an average RB, he is still a good pass blocker. For that reason alone he will get the start.

                        Hillman has gotten more reps than anyone else, plus he's a good pass catcher.

                        I say Hillman, but I wouldn't be surprised if Moreno starts too.

                          I bet Ball leads the pack. He isn't spectacular but he's a safe play usually.

                            Knowshon will carry the load if he can avoid mistakes. I think with 6 games left he gets 600 all purpose yards

                              Knowshon is the best every down fit for the offense, save for maybe JJ, and I'd like to see him and Hillman split all the carries with a small does of Lance "can't catch the" Ball.
