If this isn’t the essential summary of Knowshon Moreno’s game, I don’t know what is.
“This guy, he runs fast enough. The field’s not that big. If you’re on your own 10, somebody might catch him before he gets to the end zone. But if he’s at the 40 or 50, there’s no difference As long as you can get to the corner, as long as you can make a long run, which he can . . . will he finish every run? Maybe not. But he’ll finish enough of them.”
“The field’s not that big.” Kinda reminiscent of that great quote from Herschel about the ball not being that heavy.
Then there’s this.
“Plus, he’s a combative, competitive guy. He’s got to be the first guy off the ground [after a play]. I like that kind of stuff in a guy.”
Sometimes he’s the first guy off the ground during a play.
We’ll miss you, man.
