Denver Broncos’ Rahim Moore Vows to Avenge Playoff Mistakes
A positive attitude can go a long way in the NFL and after a very disappointing playoff performance by cornerback Rahim Moore, the shaken-up veteran vows to return with a vengeance.
Putting the past behind him, Moore strives to return to his prestige condition and more importantly, win back the confidence of both the fans and the organization.
“The thing is it’s like life in general: you have to move on. You’re going to have some good days, some bad days. But you can’t just thrive on the good days all the time,” Moore told ESPN. “The fans, that’s what they’re supposed to do, that’s why they’re there for us, they pay all their money, their hard-earned money and they want to see greatness. So, I don’t fault them at all.”
Last season during the divisional playoffs, Moore blew his coverage on receiver Jacoby Jones on a play that would lead to an eventual tie by the Baltimore Ravens and of course, eventually an overtime victory for the soon-to-be Super Bowl champions.
Heading into the playoffs, the Denver Broncos were granted the No. 1 seed in the AFC after the finishing the season with a 13-3 record that included 11-straight victories.
The Broncos were obviously the favorite to win their playoff match against the visiting Ravens.
Now, months after the unexpected and devastating collapse, Moore, who has taken heavy criticism and ultimately the blame for the monumental loss, has been held up by fellow teammates and family for guidance to stay focused on getting better, despite the discerning opinions.
“It’s a part of life, it’s a part of being a football player,” Moore recounted. “There’s so many good football players out there that there’s going to be some good and some bad [plays]. They lifted me up and it was a great thing, because that’s what Coach Fox preaches is us being a team, and they did a great job … It’s been a great offseason, so we’re on a mission.”
Moore is certainly in good company with his Broncos teammates. He is widely respected in the weight room, and the coaching staff truly believes that his greatest potential has not been met.
And now with Charles Woodson heading to the Oakland Raiders, Moore will have even less competition come August.
