KANSAS CITY, MO - DECEMBER 6: Knowshon Moreno #27 of the Denver Broncos runs with the ball for yardage during their NFL game against the Kansas City Chiefs on December 6, 2009 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. The Broncos defeated the Chiefs 44-13. (Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty Images)
Knowshon Moreno continued his breakout season on Sunday in the Broncos’ win. Fellow running back LeSean McCoy wasn’t impressed. McCoy, who leads the NFL in rushing through five games, tweeted back at ESPN’s Skip Bayless on Sunday night saying that Moreno “sucks” in the message. The Broncos’ running back saw the tweet after the 51-48 win and tweeted back in response, choosing to take the high road. Glad @CutonDime25 was watching our game tonight.Great team win,lets keeprolling.#5-0#LetHatersHate#ShotsWereFiredButNoOneGotHit— Knowshon Moreno (@knowshonmoreno) October 07, 2013 Moreno, who was drafted 12th overall in 2009, was somewhat of a disappointment during his first four seasons in Denver, racking up just 16 touchdowns and never eclipsing 1,000 yards. That underachievement might be the source of McCoy’s frustration, as the 2009 second-round pick scored 30 touchdowns and ran for almost 4,000 yards in that time. Moreno hasn’t proven he’s any better than McCoy this season, but he has been much more impressive on the whole, ranking 10th in the NFL with 331 rushing yards and second in rushing touchdown with four. That turnaround might not earn him McCoy’s respect, but, at 5-0, Moreno and the Broncos don’t really need anyone else’s approval right now. Have a question for Luke Hughes?
