Whether it be Lance Ball, Ronnie Hillman or heck, even Knowshon Moreno, the Broncos need to have someone other than Willis McGahee make plays out of the backfield.
Aside from McGahee, Broncos running backs have combined for 110 yards rushing this season and just one touchdown. Lately they have been trying to integrate Hillman into the system, but he has just 50 yards rushing on 17 carries, a 2.9 yard average.
Moreno has been inactive for the last four games, which is not a good sign for his future.
Right now, Ball seems to be the most capable of the backups, but he is averaging a mere 2.6 yards a carry. He does, however, have a receiving touchdown on the year.
Regardless of who it is, one of these guys needs to step up and complement McGahee and keep opposing defenses on their heels.
