Every unsuccessful year that comes and goes, along with every injury that sets back his career, has caused Knowshon Moreno to be labeled another "mistake" from the Josh McDaniels era.
The revitalization of the running game last season was a shining chance for Willis McGahee to rejuvenate his career, and for a time it looked like Knowshon might be able to do the same.
Unfortunately, injury and fate had other plans for Moreno and he missed the opportunity to ride the wave of success that McGahee did.
Combine that missed opportunity with the disastrous PR nightmare that Moreno created for himself in the offseason, and this is a player who desperately wants to return to the field and put the focus on his game and nothing else.
As if those factors weren't motivating enough, Moreno is at a point where he could easily be cut if he doesn't play to a level that will justify his cap number this season, or next.
Knowshon is literally playing for his livelihood in Denver, and if that doesn't bring out his "A" game, then there's no telling what will.
