The Denver Broncos defeated the Dallas Cowboys yesterday by a score of 17-10. The victory moves the Broncos to 4-0 on the season, a record no one thought they would have. Part of their success can be attributed to running back Knowshon Moreno, who found the end zone once again in the victory.
Moreno rushed the ball 14 times for 65 yards and caught 2 passes for 11 yards plus a touchdown. The one negative of the day came on a lost fumble. Moreno needs to learn how to hold on to the ball better.

For the first time in his short NFL career, Knowshon Moreno found the endzone in a Broncos 23-3 victory of the Oakland Raiders. Moreno rushed the ball 21 times for 90 yards, but was held without a catch. His touchdown came in the third quarter on a 7 yard run.
For the second game in a row, Moreno has led the Broncos in carries. They are going to do whatever is necessary to get him his touches and develop him into an every down back. The sky is the limit with Knowshon Moreno, especially in the Bronco system. They get to play against some of the worst defenses in the AFC West and will run the ball more then other teams when the weather gets bad in December.
If you have Knowshon Moreno on your fantasy team, then it’s time to insert him into your lineup. He’s no longer just a RB3/Flex type guy. I think he worthy of a RB2 spot. And if you’re in a keeper league hold on to him like he’s your first born child.

The ending of the Denver vs. Cincinnati game last weekend was absolutely crazy. I can’t believe Stokley caught that tipped ball and took it all the way in for a touchdown with virtually no time left on the clock. I am surprised though that there wasn’t more scoring in this game. The Broncos and Bengals have good offenses, but sucky defenses. So who knows what happened?
I do know that Knowshon Moreno didn’t play well. First game jitters I hope. He rushed the ball 8 times for only 19 yards (including a long of 8 yards). Moreno did not record a catch, something he excelled in doing at Georgia.
This weekend the Broncos play a home opener vs. Cleveland. The running game has got to improve. The Vikings were able to run ALL OVER the Browns last weekend so there is no excuse for the Broncos not to focus on rushing the ball. Expect Knowshon Moreno to get 15 carries and 70 yards rushing. I also think he’ll find the endzone for the first time in his NFL career.

The Denver Broncos were without first round draft pick Knowshon Moreno in their second preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks. Knowshon is being held out because of an MCL Sprain. If the Broncos are lucky, they may have him back for the final preseason game.
Knowshon Moreno was drafted to be a starting, 3-down back from the get go. If he can’t get healthy though, he won’t be starting opening day and will lose carries to some of the vets like LaMont Jordan and Correll Buckhalter.

I know the Capital One Bowl was a New Years Day Bowl game, and today is January 6th, but I took some days off from the internet world over the holidays and am just now getting in the swing of things.
I imagine all you Dawg fans saw the Capital One Bowl. With a little help from Knowshon Moreno, the Georgia Bulldogs were able to beat the Michigan State Spartans 24-12. Knowshon finished the game with 23 carries for only 62 yards, but he had 6 receptions for 63 yards and a touchdown. The Spartans were determined to stop the run, what they didn’t count on was Knowshon showing his mad receiving skills.
Check out the touchdown at the end of this highlight film. Knowshon grabs a 21 yard pass from Stafford to seal the victory.
Following the game, Knowshon directed the UGA Redcoat Band during their victory song.

On Thursday January 1, Knowshon Moreno and the Georgia Bulldogs will play the Michigan State Spartans in the Capital One Bowl in Orlando, FL. A lot of college and pro football fans will be watching this game because it features the best two running backs in the NCAA: Knowshon Moreno and Javon Ringer. Knowshon Moreno rushed the ball 227 times this year and become the only Georgia back to record consecutive 1,000-yard seasons since Herschel Walker.
“People are going to talk about it, but we’re not playing against each other,” Moreno said. Both players were finalists for the Doak Walker Award and both are eyeing the NFL Draft in 2009.
Georgia had high hopes heading into 2008. They’re going to play with a lot of passion and emotion to try to finish strong. “I think the biggest thing for us is to get to 10 wins, make sure we get to the double digit win category and end the season on a high note to go into the offseason with momentum,” Stafford said.
I predict Knowshon Moreno will outshine Ringer in the Capital One Bowl. I’m thinking 19 carries 147 yards and 2 touchdowns.

The Georgia Bulldogs closed out their regular season with another disappointing loss… this time to Georgia Tech. The Dawgs lost 45-42. Knowshon Moreno rushed the ball 17 times for 94 yards plus a touchdown, and he had 4 receptions for 74 yards.
Georgia was leading 28-12 going into the half, but Tech scored 26 unanswered points in the 3rd quarter. It was too much for the Dawgs to come back from in the 4th. Not a great way to possibly end your career at Georgia.
The attention now shits to the Bowl Game and ultimately if Knowshon Moreno will make the leap to the NFL in 2009. I would say with 95% certainty that he will be headed to the NFL. There’s nothing keeping him in Athens… the Dawgs won’t have a chance to complete for a title next year either.

We are less then an hour away from the annual Georgia vs. Georgia Tech football game. With their ACC title hopes to be decided nearly 400 miles away, the 18th-ranked Yellow Jackets will try to focus on gaining state bragging rights from No. 13 Georgia for the first time in eight years as the area rivals wrap up the regular season Saturday.
Last year, Georgia Tech was able to keep Knowshon Moreno in check. He was held to only 45 yards on 17 carries and couldn’t find the endzone. That gameplan didn’t work so well for the Yellow Jackets, maybe they’ll try something different today. Moreno has compiled back to back 100 yard rushing games and is averaging 5.9 ypc this season. With 91 yards rushing he’ll pass his stat total from last season.
The line has Georgia by 7 1/2 … I think they cover and Knowshon Moreno has a big day.

This game shouldn’t have had to come down to the 4th quarter. The Georgia Bulldogs were supposed to HANDLE Auburn. I’m glad the Dawgs were able to hold on to the win, but where are the blowouts this team was supposed to deliver in 2008?
Knowshon Moreno played a good. Moreno ended the game with 22 carries for 131 yards rushing and 4 receptions for 58 yards plus a touchdown. He now has back to back 100-yard games, and has rushed for over 100 in 5 of his last 6 games (Florida being the exception).
“The thing I’ve liked about Knowshon in the last two weeks in particular is how he’s practiced,” Richt said. “Not that he doesn’t always practice well, but that he’s had a different attitude starting two Tuesdays ago and it hasn’t changed.”
Richt said Moreno’s change might have stemmed from criticism the running back received from taking himself out of games at given moments.
“I don’t know if people got under his skin about taking himself out of the game or what,” Richt said. “He just seemed to have a little edge. He looked like he was kind of mad.”
Running mad is a good thing for a back. They deliver more power and bring more speed when they’re angry or running with a chip on their shoulder.
Check back this afternoon or tomorrow for the highlights.

Knowshon Moreno and the Georgia Bulldogs are off the Auburn for an SEC showdown against the Tigers (or is it War Eagles?). Looking at this game on the schedule before the season starter you might have thought it would be two top ranked teams battling for a spot in the SEC Championship game. Alas, Auburn sucks this year and Georgia lost all hope when they lost to Florida a couple of weeks ago.
Last year against Auburn, Knowshon rushed for 100 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Auburn team he’s facing this year is 10x worse the last year, so anything below 100 yards rushing and a couple of scores will be a bad day.
If you can’t remember what he did last year, check out the cutback on this 24 yard touchdown run.
With nothing really left to hope for, Dawg fans need to cling to big time blowouts and statistical explosions. I think Knowshon Moreno can provide just that.
There’s really no doubt in my mind that the Dawgs will win this game. They should win by 30 points. Auburn has a terrible defense and they can’t stop anyone.
