It’s 8:45 a.m. in Denver, which means Denver Broncos second year safety Rahim Moore has already been at it for three hours.
Moore, who had four tackles and a pass defense against the Pittsburgh Steelers, started at free safety for the Broncos, then never left the field for a defensive substitution during the Broncos’ 31-19 win. Moore credits the extra early morning film study he and the secondary have put in to his success.
Against Pittsburgh, the second-year safety was one of four Broncos to play in every defensive snap of the game – all 81. In breaking down the game film, Moore believes he looked “more comfortable than (he) ever (has).”
“I made more plays on the ball and (did) more in the run game,” Moore said. “It just shows the film study I put in – getting here at 5:45 with Tracy Porter and the rest of the guys, just watching film. That’s what makes you feel more comfortable out there.”
That comfortability is a far cry from Moore’s 2011 rookie season, which saw the second round pick go from starter to the inactive list in a few months’ time.
