I wouldn't either. But that's not because I believe Hillis is a better back, it's just he has much better blocking up from and will get more carries.

My guess is that he put the video together, which has his website name on it, hoping that it would go viral to some level, getting his website URL out there.
Yeah, I figured as much. More power to him for trying to do the Ochocinco/Cooley/Kluwe/etc thing, but it doesn't work if your stuff is garbage.

He should do a blog entry about McDaniels' wife.

He's had plenty of 100 yard games. I don't know why catching yards wouldn't count, as they move the line of scrimmage forward just as effectively.

because when we drafted him #14, we expect a running back to be more than a guy catching balls out of the backfield. Is that too much to ask?

The root word of the position he plays might hold the key to what we want from him.

Nothing Knowshow has shown to date indicates that he can carry Hillis's jock at all except in McCheat's world of judging talent and we see how that worked out. Wrong on every count.

Statistics do not show this. They have put up similar numbers. Not arguing that Moreno is a better player, but both are solid players. It blows Hillis had to be sent to Cleveland, but thats how things happen sometimes.

Do not let your hatred of an ex-coach color your perceptions of the players we have. Its not Knowshon's fault that McDaniels is what he is. It's not his fault that the Broncos took him at 12. For the 12th pick you would expect his 2 seasons of work to equal a single season, and its possible that may happen. Unlikely, but it is football. Who knows what the **** will happen.


Hillis: 42 GP. 351 carries, 1574 yds, 4.5 av, 48L, 17 tds. 79 rec, 675 yds, 8.5 avg, 47L, 3tds. 9 fumbles, 6 fumbles lost.

Moreno: 29 GP. 429 carries, 1726 yds, 4.0 avg, 36L, 12 tds. 65 rec, 585 yds, 9.0 avg, 49L, 5 tds. 7 fumbles, 6 fumbles lost.

I don't think Hillis is going to have a big year. I just don't see the weapons in the Browns passing game that makes me feel like he won't see 8 in the box a lot. Also I see him being guarded much more closely out of the backfield for receptions. I think the extra defensive attention, the fact the Browns want to reduce his workload, will lead to a decent but not great yr for Hillis.

If Knowshon has a good yr I will be a bit surprised. I think Magahee a better football player. I even like how the Grizz hunters runs over Moreno. Moreno seems to waste a lot of movement not going anywhere.

He did look better in that Dallas game though and his highlights in college sure looked good. I have fingers crossed that he is a late bloomer.

Are you ****ing retarded? He had a 950 yard season. So what if he didn't arbitrarily hit some 4 digit number, he already had a 1000 yard season. ****ing mongoloid.

Nice post..... tell me what your other name was before you got banned and signed up again?

But since you're new I will type slower so you can understand, he's a first round draft pick and should have a couple of 1000K seasons under his belt, so read my lips .......... tell me how good he is when he has a 1000k season under his belt and he's not watching the playoffs on TV.

If our goal for a #12 overall pick is an outdated one from a shorter schedule (1k yards), then we've already lost.
