A month ago, I questioned whether Knowshon Moreno would make the Denver Broncos’ final roster. His history of minimal production and injuries put him in danger of making the team. Knowshon Moreno's first trial is behind him; he is on the final Bronco roster. His next task will be to make enough of an impression to increase his playing time.
Although there were instances of potential, more often than not, Knowshon was a disappointment.
Last season Willis McGahee became the outright starter and led the team with over 1,000 yards rushing. And when the Broncos drafted Ronnie Hillman in the third round in April’s draft, Knowshon’s future with the Broncos, and possibly his football career, were in jeopardy.

Most experts regard the quarterback position as the most important in all of sports. If your team has a great quarterback, a trip to the playoffs is likely.
