Agreed. Or if Mike hadn't fired Larry Coyer.

I think people need to move on. Trading Hillis was obviously a mistake. Get over it.

People have been saying that for a loooong time. Too many people are but hurt that he is gone and actually hate other people because of it.

These are adults, with children who use these terms.

Not other people, but McDaniels for trading him. We laugh at those that thought he would be a bust or went the way whatever McDaniels stated must be true.

Its not crazy.

He had less than 500 rushing yards in two seasons as a Bronco. He had the one great game, and that great game was 129 yards. Not really great, but we're living on hype here, so that was the greatestest game evah!

The rest of his games ne was not nearly as productive as Moreno has been, and yet last week I had to read about how terribly unproductive Moreno is.

This myth that Hillis was a beast before being traded is just beyond maniacal.

Seriously? You REALLY think McD drafted Quinn because 'fans' questioned Orton? I know you know better than this.

btw, fyi, McD had a woody over Quinn long before he came to Denver.

no, he brought him in because he realized that in '09 if we had somebody who could have posted ANY kind of QB rating in the second half against the Redskins other than Chris Simms, we win that game and make the playoffs

4th String RB vs. 2nd String QB

it was just a question of need at the time

Most of those yards came only in the 4 games he started at RB. The 129 yards vs the Jets was the first time a RB went over 100 on them that year.

What can be said in post 3662 onward, that hasn`t already been said?

The 20 athletes ran 400 yards each. Gee, wonder who would win the race? You are comparing a team stat with one individual. But let us take your advice and see what other RBs would not make the Broncos better based on having less yards than our team as a whole.
3 Michael Turner, RB ATL 334 1371 4.1
4 Chris Johnson, RB TEN 316 1364 4.3
5 Maurice Jones-Drew, RB JAC 299 1324 4.4
6 Adrian Peterson, RB MIN 283 1298 4.6
7 Rashard Mendenhall, RB PIT 324 1273 3.9
8 Steven Jackson, RB STL 330 1241 3.8
9 Ahmad Bradshaw, RB NYG 276 1235 4.5
10 Ray Rice, RB BAL 307 1220

Here is our featured back for the year...
24 Knowshon Moreno, RB DEN 182 779 4.3

It took 2 QBs, 4 RBs and at least 1 FB plus a draft pick with the Hillis trade to surpass Hillis' numbers! Next time, have stats based on things that can trully be compared. This post and stats is so ****ing rediculous, it deserves a fat neg rep. The Hillis debate isnt as much as who is better but McDaniels getting rid of a running back that benefits the team. We could have had both backs especially when Moreno was injured. Are we better for not having Hillis and instead having a 3rd string QB plus giving up a pick in 2011? ****ing moron. You make Karenin, Missouribronc and MVPlaya look like Einsteins.
Dumbass this trade sucked period. I don't even like Hillis and I think the trade was a epic fail. Of course anyone of those backs would make the team better, because they are better then what we have on our roster now. Maybe I should have tried harder to make my posts more sarcastic.

yes you should have and also know dip**** that I hated the trade. We have so many fing numnuts trying to tell us that Hillis was nothing here and now nothing in Browns camp that who could tell the difference. Didnt know i get a F U in a rep though and misquote me by saying 7 running backs equal one. No, those 7 running backs all excelled and had less yards compared to our entire team. Follow along or dont post, Moron. If you are trying to be sarcastic in the post from a few pages back, do a better job. You quoted my post and it does point out exactly based on your "sarcastic" post. You failed at being sarcastic or funny and amazing we somehow are on the same page according to Hillis.

It always gets me when people make snide criticisms of things that they are a chief party to. I see it happen all the time.
