This is a make-or-break year for Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno. According to columnist Woody Paige of the Denver Post.
Former coach Josh McDaniels and his staff thought privately that they had made a big mistake in drafting Moreno. “He was not what they thought. He hasn’t been tough, smart, motivated. He has been a bust. I’ve said it before. He’s not a great clubhouse guy. Interpret that how you want, and he’s been a wimp on the field.”
John Fox is bringing back the zone blocking, and Moreno is not a one-cut back who will go against the grain, or, at least, he hasn’t been, and he doesn’t get into the secondary fast. They need another running back bad, and Fox, in our three-hour conversation last week, said running back is the priority, along with defensive tackles, in free agency.
It doesn’t help that Moreno has not been showing up at any of the player-organized workouts during the lockout.
