Denver Broncos safety Rahim Moore has had too much time on his hands since the loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the divisional round of the playoffs.
Moore, of course was the focus on a blown coverage that allowed Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones to get behind him and catch the game tying touchdown with less than a minute to go and the game seemingly in hand.
The reward for penance is redemption, and Moore isn't going to curl up in a ball and hide. Moore now will get a chance to show his mental toughness and grit by coming back and having a strong season, and help the Broncos to get back to the playoffs.
"I don’t want to be in this league five years and be gone. I don’t want to be a bust. I don’t want to be a guy who had a bright future and didn’t make it happen.
I want to be a Pro Bowler. I want to win championships. This is a great organization, so why not live up to those expectations?" Moore said, via Mike Klis of the Denver Post."What makes you a great player in this league is how you bounce back and how you learn from your mistakes. I don’t want people to think I’m over here hurting. I’m mad because I know our vision and what we’re capable of doing.
But you have to move on. In life, you make mistakes. We all suffered from it, from my mistake. I take the full blame because I’m a man. I love this team, I love this organization so much. I think God has brought me here for a reason. I’ve moved forward. And I’m on a mission. I’m hungry."
