After a fast start, the Broncos failed to do much in the second half of the 2009 season, in part due to their inability to stop the run. In the last three games of the season they allowed 663 yards on the ground. Over the final eight games, the Broncos gave up 200 points. Bigger, stronger, faster and tougher is the motto in Denver now, on both sides of the ball. Along with being more physical, the Broncos must make big plays down the field in their passing game to vertically threaten the field. That will open things up for RB Knowshon Moreno, who, if healthy, might set the league on fire this season. The Broncos resembles Butler University in the NCAA playoffs, a dangerous team that understands the real meaning of "team" gaining confidence with every win.
Knowshon Moreno is ranked #13 on the 4for4 RB Cheat Sheet.
