Yeah. Makes sense.

Face it. Hillis wouldn't work hard enough to beat anyone out for the starting job. ****, he still didn't do it in Cleveland, and lo and behold, two injuries and the disappearance of the starter, Hillis gets to play.

Frankly, Broncos fans should be pissed off at Hillis for not trying harder and being a bigger person than McDaniels. Had he done that, and worked harder he might have stayed. He failed you.

Really? You're on the Quinn bandwagon now? Amazing. He's appears worthless.

Maybe you should face a few facts:

The running game under McDaniels was horrible. With or without Hillis. And yet Hillis had success before McDaniels, and had success on a different team after McDaniels. Sometimes it really does come down to coaching. But it's OK, McDaniels was fired. I guess he failed you.

Consider this: McD was fired. Xanders was kept.

Click on the "Broncos GM Brian Xanders with Vic & Gary" part

I think it's interesting to hear Xanders talk about the scouting and interview process of Tebow, about the balance of power (or lack thereof) between between himself and McDaniels, and of course how he responds to the question of the Hillis trade. Nothing groundbreaking here, but I think especially in light of Elway's candid comments today it's interesting to hear another perspective on the situation in the front office for the last couple of years.

Reading between the lines, there was no love lost between Xanders and Josh.

We brought in a WR that went to the Pro Bowl. We brought in one of the most exciting QB prospects in the league.

Life goes on.

Really... it does.

I woke up today to a sunny SoCal morning, birds chirping... cool breeze. Beautiful.

Honestly... everything is going to be O.K..

So at this point you've got to wonder if Mularkey agreed to interview with CLE only because Hillis is there.

Nah. I know he's not "I gotta go be his Head Coach" good, just "****, we shouldn't have gotten rid of that guy" good.

Yeah, I wish our team gained an extra 100 yards and no extra touchdowns, while having a worse pass blocker in a passing offense in the backfield too.

Tha Supa Bowl we been bound!

Yeah, I wish they had known that McDaniels was going to get fired then they could have kept Hillis until they got a real coaching staff.

If Hillis would not have been traded, Denver would have won the Super Bowl, and it hasn't even been played yet. He's that good.

I don't think it's that bad, honestly. I think some people are just pissed that we had a guy that looked pretty good at one time, and he just couldn't keep himself on the field at all once we got a new Head Coach. He completely crapped the bed out there and it's still unclear why. I was pretty frustrated about it, and I still feel that McD's coaching staff didn't get as much out of Hillis as they should have. Then, when you see him have success on another team, in a different situation...

If the last six games were any indication, we're looking at a monster 600 yard, 4 touchdown season from Hillis next year.

When asked about the novelty of being a white running back in the NFL on the Dan Patrick Show, Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis claimed that he was often taunted during games for being white.

"Every team did it," Hillis said. "They'll say, 'You white boy, you ain't gonna run on us today. This is ridiculous. Why are you giving offensive linemen the ball?'

He went on to give examples of the nicknames he heard throughout the season. Patrick said his favorite was "The Avalanche."

"I heard that one," Hillis replied. "I heard 'White Rhino.' I heard ... Chuck Norris.
