Running back Knowshon Moreno had a big night. Big Pete provides some post-game thoughts on tonight’s game… Has a complete and utter domination by one team over another had such a close score? This felt like a 50-7 football game, yet there we were, giving the Raiders hope when there really was none. Like I said in my nit-pick article, we need to crush the souls of our opponents, not let them linger around only to eek out a win. I know this wasn’t a nail-biting win, but c’mon man! We should have won by 40! Is a win a win? Sure, but we need to make a statement! We need to beat Oakland down so bad that even the Ravens get sore! Again, while we completely DESTROYED the Raiders, the score was way, way too close! Knowshon is a real asset, just not in the short yardage game. I mean, 120 rushing yards, and 50 more in the air is one hell of a performance; one that McGahee hasn’t given us in a long, long time! Moreno is running with more patience, and he’s an excellent pass catching RB. While Knowshon is still Knowshon, he’s filling in fantastically for McGahee. My only hang-up with Moreno is that he just isn’t a very good short yardage runner. I’m trying to not get too high on Moreno, cause my gut tells me that he’ll let me down, but man, he’s making it tough to not call for him to get a legit shot at not giving McGahee his job back after injury. Can Ramirez pick up a blitz? Please? Holy cow, he was like a subway turnstile. We need Kuper back ASAP, because this line is completely different with Kuper in there. We had a Caldwell sighting, and he did pretty good. While he only had a few catches, the long one for a first down was beautiful. He’s also solid as a gunner on special teams. He’s definitely an asset, and it’s nice to see that he was activated and involved. I hope that we see more of him as this year progresses. His speed is amazing, so I’m somewhat baffled as to why we haven’t been using him earlier? Were we just saving him for the playoffs, and to add another impossible to defend wrinkle for our offense? All I know is that he’s a burner with good hands. Tools like that should never be kept in the shed to rust! How can I forget about Matt Prater? He hit his FGs, including a *gulp* 43 yarder!!! It looks like he didn’t over think things, and easily nailed all 3 of his attempts. With this field being so terrible, it would have been easy to lose his footing and miss some, so it was really nice to see him hitting on all cylinders and keeping his head in the game. How great is Von Miller? He gets a Strip sack, he seemingly forces the Raiders into a holding penalty on every play of the 3rd quarter, and was just flat out dominant again. The race for DPOY is close, with Von Miller (my opinion), the winner of that award. So Broncos fans, do you agree? Disagree? Have reactions of your own? Lets hear ‘em!
