Well, while the Browns starters overall played great, the backup FB who only got a job because Hardesty got hurt last year, was mediocre at best.

Hardesty lit it up with 5 carries for 18 yards, and an impressive by Moreno standards, 3 YPC.

McCoy was on fire with a 9/18, 89 yard performance with no TDs and one INT.

The Browns starters overall racked up an amazing 103 yards of total offense in the first half.

Unfortunately, maybe because of the wet track, or coming back from the hamstring and back injuries last week, but Hillis was only a pedestrian 3 for 18, 6 YPC, and only had two catches for 35 yards.

Yes, he led the starters in receiving, but backup FB's are supposed to do much more.

Speaking of much more, for Hillis to only account for 51% of the Brown's offense, again is disgraceful. Any backup FB worth his salt should be at 60-70% of the team's yards....

51% of the offense = Because the Brown's didn't have anyone else.

Really we seem to get over ruben droughns who rushed for 1200 yards for us and then mike shanahan traded him to cleveland where he ran for 1200 yards for them and nobody missed him.........

If he's not a denver bronco anymore then I don't miss him....

Actually, I watched most of the Browns games that year, that weren't on at the same time as the Broncos.

The coach that traded Hillis is fired. It's time to move on.
Hopefully, knowshown plays better this year.

1,200 APY and 8 TD per year average since coming into the league.

Playing in a scheme where rushers don't put up major yards and behind one of the NFL's most inconsistent and poor lines in the rushing attack.

I think he was behind Prater both years in scoring. If he doesn't play football well, I guess not many other people do on this team.

This is Knowshon's put up year. I think 1,500 total yards and 10 touchdowns will be a realistic possibility.

Too bad the backup FB couldn't put up numbers like that, he just had a measly 1650 APY and 13 TDs, and didn't even have the brains to sit out those last three games when he had the broken ribs. Dumb fullbacks.

Why are you complaining he looked like MC Hammer when he scored that TD against the Raiders and cut the score to 52 - 7.

Anybody worth a toot who receives the amount of touches he did proportionate to offensive calls is going to put up great numbers.

Just like when Ashley Lelie posted his best year ever when he finally received 100+ targets. You get enough balls, you are going to make some plays. By all accounts, Lelie was just an average receiver. There are numerous examples of this.

It will be interesting to see how things progress for the Browns this year and how Hillis does. I've seen many argue that getting more offensive players to deal with on defenses will open up things more, allowing more production. We'll see.

Still hoping for Knowshon this year! GoKnoGoKnoGoKno!

Some of those that let the trade happen is still here. It doesn't matter, it wasn't like he did what Cutler was accused of doing. If Moreno produces with McGahee, this thread will die out.......probably not.

Ok, prediction time.

Do the Browns sign him to an extension before the season starts? Before the end of the season? Or, let him test free agency?

What will his contract be?

I don't see what's wrong with the guy. I mean while I'd still like to sack kid McDouche for dumping this guy and taking Knowshow, it's not so much like he's Eric Dickerson but that it was creating a hole so McDouche could waste a one to fill. But, McGahee cannot be expected to reproduce those numbers, and recovery wise Knowshow will be in month 7 which is about the time to think he'd be working to get full strength and ready to practice. But, Knowshow has not shown any ability to carry the load. He's got some value as a 15 carry guy and 3rd down. Hillis is a journeyman between the tackles guy. He seems to have a similar skill set to McGahee and would be a decent backup if he worked cheap. No way you give this guy probowl money.
