While Broncos QB Peyton Manning's passing game was running on all cylinders, the backfield showed problematic signs Saturday night.
Ronnie Hillman saw the bulk of the first-team work, but he was pulled from the game after a goal-line fumble. Meanwhile, rookie Montee Ball whiffed on a pass block, leading to big hit on Peyton Manning.
The story pointed out how these are troubling signs in a Manning-centric offense where the tailback's primary responsibilities are ball security and protecting the quarterback. Seems like neither tailback is stepping up to take control of this camp battle. We've been hearing all along that this will be a committee situation.
