this argument reminds me of the two girls...one who talked about her former beau, and the other aboiut her current beau. The first one said that her ex never opened the car door, paid for a solitary meal or any attention to her, showed her no affection and sucked in bed...

meanwhile the other girls is telling her how her current beau is chivalrous, courteous, doesn't let her spend a dime on anything, simply adored her, showered her with affection and was a tiger in the sack... asked what his name was, and they both responded "Peyton...Peyton Hillis..."

When he was here he showed little to prove he was anymore valuable than the trash we got for him....however he's probably figured out that if he couldn't make it in Cleveland (arguably the league's worst franchise) he wouldn't make it on any other team.
...to his credit he forged a pretty good season. Good for him, i wish him well. Haviung said that, i think the best advice is - Root for who we are, not for who we are not.

Larson can hit but he's slow and unathletic. He's a decent FB, and at best,a backup LB. Let's not get carried away.
I think he should have at least had a chance to focus on the lb position 1 year and see if he could develop into something. He came in as a rookie and had to play in all 3 fazes of the team. Just like Hillis all people wanted was for him to get a chance. Thats what I wanted for Larsen. Now I said IF he went to another team and became great that people like me would be biatching about him not getting a chance at the lb position, just like people are biatching about Hillis not getting a decent chance here.

FWIW, this is from a new article on Hillis, that I saw PFT Tweet about.


Quote:
On any given day in the town of Conway, Ark., Browns running back Peyton Hillis can be seen trudging through his neighborhood with a half-ton truck harnessed to his chest.

On lighter training days, he'll lug a small car or all-terrain vehicle around the block.

"I know it's weird, but if you saw it, you can see it works," he said. "It's just something a buddy of mine came up with and I've been doing it since my junior year in high school."

...

When Hillis isn't attached to a hunk of metal, he's doing a variety of other things to prepare for the season.

"I have coaches from Conway High working me out and all kinds of local fitness experts," he said. "I'm doing yoga, MMA and things like that. I'm an unorthodox player, so I have to do things that fit my kind of game."

...

For the folks who think that Hillis wore down toward the end of last season, guess again. He was playing with cracked ribs for the final three games that made every breath, every move excruciating.

"I broke them at the very beginning of the Cincinnati game [Dec. 19] and then aggravated them in the Baltimore game the next week," he said. "They were really bad in the last game against Pittsburgh, too [six carries, 13 yards]. It was tough to cope with, but I did it because I wanted what's best for the team and I wanted to play for the guys. I wanted them to know how much the team meant to me, and I wanted to do them that favor."

It would have been a badass backfield. There would have been more guns in that backfield than in most armies. LB's would be in fetal positions after playing Denver.

Thanks for rubberstamping the Hillis trade, old man. You're a real piece of work.

Is this the longest thread in the history of the OM? If so, it may be worthy of Ring of Fame consideration.

It's the longest thread about a player on the OM, and the fourth longest overall.

So, now there are TWO humans that have made Conway, Arkansas famous.

Conway Twitty and Peyton Hillis.

The greatest Country singer all time, and the greatest Country RB all time.

Not necessarily. Josh had a hard on for Tebow. There's no reason to believe he wouldn't have found a way to make it happen.

Did we get a pick back with Quinn? I thought it was Hillis and two picks (one sixth and one conditional) for Quinn.

Even if we did get a pick back that was used, there is every reason to believe McDaniels would have used another pick to get Tebow, like you've indicated.
