Safety Rahim Moore isn’t slow to admit that at times, he struggled last year.
“I’ve had some good and bad (experiences), majority bad,” Moore laughed.
He’s over it. The only reason Moore looks back on his 2011 season is to learn from it.
“You just get better,” Moore said. “You watch (the film), but at the same time you have to move on. It’s not like you harp or get mad about it. You just get better. Because at the same time, there were some advantages that I didn’t have last year compared to previous rookies. Now, it’s no excuses. I’m just trying to make plays and win games. That’s it.”
As a rookie, Moore started the first five regular season games last year for the Broncos, but then just two of the final 11 games. Fellow rookie Quinton Carter replaced him at the starting safety position. But with the first official depth chart almost a week old, the former UCLA Bruin is back at No. 1 and playing with the first unit.
“Now, I’m inspired,” Moore said. “I’m more inspired and more motivated than I’ve ever been. Last year, I was training just to get ready for the NFL. This year, I’m training for an NFL season. It’s a difference.”
