Moreno Playing With Passion

Posted Jan 9, 2014

Running back Knowshon Moreno has played with his emotions on his sleeve this season.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Running back Knowshon Moreno is quick to his feet after each tackle, quick to nod emphatically, quick throw a celebratory point.

In San Diego he crawled, helmetless, to dramatize a tough first-down run. In Kansas City, tears streamed down his face as the National Anthem rang out.

You may have noticed – he’s an emotional player.

“I’ve always been that way – high school and in college,” he said Thursday. “I guess that’s just my thing, you know? I play with my emotions on my sleeve and just go out there and have fun doing it.”

He views game day as a reward for all the work in the offseason and during every week of the season, so he makes the most of it when he is out there. This season has been especially rewarding for Moreno, as he remained healthy for the entire regular season and played in all 16 games – something he hadn’t done since his rookie campaign.

And he’s made the most of those game days. This season he became the first player in Broncos history to have more than 1,000 rushing yards and 500 receiving yards.

Now he’s looking to carry that success into the postseason, which should be just as, if not more, emotional than the regular season was.

Moreno said that both sides of his family have that sort of passion – a family of athletes “always up for a competition.”

“It’s interesting with him. He’ll spark it up anytime. You never know when it’s coming,” Offensive Coordinator Adam Gase said of Moreno's emotions. “But his energy level is great to be around. You can see a lot of the other guys feed off that.”

Gase added that Moreno never goes “too far overboard” and the fifth-year back knows where his peak is. That self-control is important because trying to reign in Moreno’s emotions might be too much to ask of his teammates.

“It's not possible,” Demaryius Thomas laughed. “Just let him do what he wants to do because he comes off, he's fired up after every play, he jumps up fast, he's talking trash, he's always looking at the other sideline, so you just let Knowshon be himself."
