  • Wonder if McGahee or Addai might get a call soon?

    Hillman is not our answer at RB...too small and has not really improved over last year.

    Ball is a rookie and will not really hit a stride until midseason...

    Moreno has been practicing with the 3's although could get up to speed immediately - however will only last three games before going down with an injury.

    All three are running behind a battered and suspect O-line.

    Wonder if a call to McGahee or Addai (since we seem to be dipping into retired Colts) may be forthcoming?

    McGahee wouldn't be bad to call.

    Addai has been on the couch for 2-3 years?

      You basing Hillman's progress on a preseason game against one of the best defenses... Hold your judgment for the regular season. People need to stop with these knee jerk reactions to preseasons game. People on this site are worst than ESPN.(whom took Nick Foles getting starting reps in OTA's as a sign Vick won't start)

      Hillman has looked better than last season's preseason.

        but Hillman is still dropping the ball. 2X last night. and that is why McGahee is gone. At lest McGahee could move a pile. It was nice to see the pile move forward when Ball was hit. Still need a bigger back as a starter.

            If Moreno isn't back in time for the season opener, I'd swallow my pride and get on the phone with McGahee and tell him "we're sorrrryyy, please come back". I certainly wouldn't be comfortable going into the season with just Hillman, Ball, and Ball

              I'm all up for McGahee to come back dont think they should've let him go at all, hillman is way to small , preseason or not you shouldn't be fumbling he just can't hang with the big boys running up the middle. Ball missed a blocking assignment which got manning laid out if that doesn't keep you from being a starter I don't know what will . You imagine ifs manning wouldve gotten injured !!!? Like someone else said at least Willis could move a pile when he gets trapped . Ball pick over lacy isn't looking to promising right now but I will give ball the benefit of the doubt since he is a rookie .

                I thought both the backs looked good last night, other than putting the ball on the ground.

                When Moreno is ready our depth will be better. I'm not worried.

                Who was wearing #22 last night?

                  Jacob Hester wears 22. And Montee will be the #1 guy for the regular season. Hillman will be the rotational change of pace guy, and Knowshon will be a 3rd down specialist. We don't need McGahee to come in and fumble any more.

                    With an average of 275 carries a season, McGahee never had more than 4 fumbles in a season until last year. And we saw how the coaching staff reacted to McGahee's 5 fumbles from last season. McGahee is gone. So, where is that going to leave Hillman. Especially with the red-zone fumble into the End Zone that was not only not 6 points for the Broncos, it was 6 points for Seattle. The coaching staff won't put up with it. Period. Plus, every time I see Hillman on the field, he looks smaller and smaller. He simply is ineffective carrying the load. And Montee Ball, known for not fumbling in college, won't be ready for another year, according to Peyton Manning and the coaching staff.

                    So, hell yeah I'd like to see McGahee brought back. I thought it was a mistake to not bring him back for TC.

                        Hillman went 13 carries for 34 yards that's looking good to you?

                            Thanks! Interesting article. My point was that if you leave out last season where McGahee had an unusually, and atypically high number of fumbles, his "Fumble percentage" would have been 1.27% (by my math). Which is middle of the road. Saying that McGahee is a perennial fumbler, which some people are suggesting on these Boards, reminds me of people saying that Chris Kuper was always hurt, when the fact was that besides missing a couple of games in his career, Kuper was hardly ever hurt until he suffered a catastrophic injury. It ignores the "Big Picture". The point is that Denver needs a big back, who knows the score, to get the hard yards when necessary. McGahee knows the playbook, has experience, and judging by the guys work ethic, is probably in top shape.

                              Peyton Manning interview on TV, last week when he said it takes a RB two to three years to "get it". And comments I've heard on the radio.
