I'd rather have McGahee at this point. Knowshon isn't completely useless, but he consistently gets less yards than he should. Aside from the fumble problem, there's no reason why you shouldn't prefer McGahee.

I guess you have to ask yourself, was McGahee's fumble problem a fluke, or a sign of things to come?
He's fumbled a lot his whole career. Another reason to cut him.
True. I mean with Peyton it's not as big of a problem to have a mediocre RB who doesn't turn it over.

You know what the hilarious thing is? Moreno fumbles every 67 carries. McGahee fumbles every 70 carries.

Is that for McGahee's career or just his years with the Broncos. If it's for his career, I'd like to hear how often he fumbles since he's joined the Broncos. Seems like in Baltimore and Buffalo he didn't fumble nearly as much as he does now.

Wanna know something more hilarious? Moreno's made improvement in that area, McGahee has only gotten worse.

Was Moreno improving when he was benched because he was ineffective/useless?

And how did he respond when he was thrust into playing time? Pretty damn well.

Let's not sugarcoat what happened last season; Knowshon played well for a few games when he got his chance, but he wore down very quickly and ultimately got injured. He cannot handle the full load, or even a partial load when sharing with Hillman. I'm saying he's the one who will get cut, but we shouldn't talk about last year like Moreno set the world on fire.

In the 6 games last year for which Knowshon was the primary back, he averaged under 4 YPC with a Peyton Manning-led passing offense that didn't exactly have defenses stacking the box.

I thought Moreno would be kept on the team due to his age, salary, and experience. But I'm starting to re-consider.

Moreno's knee might be in worse shape than was publicly known. My feeling now is that if he can't play when training camp starts, he is likely to be waived.

UPDATE: Moreno appeared at the OTAs and says his knee is 100%

If his knee really is good to go, then McGahee will be cut.
