BOISE-- One of the biggest concerns in Bronco Nation this summer has been how to replace record setting wide receivers Titus Young and Austin Pettis. But if you ask the Broncos themselves, they say they aren't too concerned about the passing game, as long as senior quarterback Kellen Moore is doing the passing.
The Heisman Trophy finalist from 2010 has improved in each of his last three seasons. He increased his passing yard total from 3,536 to 3,845 from 2009 to 2010, and raised his completion percentage by seven points.
"He's a really good decision maker, he's an accurate thrower," BSU head coach Chris Petersen said. "But he's going to have to be at the top of his game to really give us a chance to bring some of these younger guys along. Which we feel good about. But we feel good about them partly because of Kellen."
"Kellen knows what he is doing. He's just like an extra coach, I feel like," sophomore wide receiver Geraldo Boldewijn said. "He understands us and we understand him. It's easy to communicate with him. It's definitely really good to have Kellen around."
Moore and the Broncos will face Georgia in the Chick-fil-A bowl on September 3.
