    There was a report on ESPN yesterday that some Browns players questioned Hillis about him not playing last week. Wonder if he didn't play because of the lock out. If he is causing trouble in the locker room would you trade him right now? Were you not surprised when he didn't play last week even though he was at all of the meetings on the day before last weeks game? If that espn report is accurate and his teammates are doubting his will to play that is not good for the locker room.

    So would you trade him right now? I definately don't want to trade him. I wonder what the value of Hillis would be. Would you trade him for a decent receiver or even a 2nd round pick?

    Listening to AM radio will make you say stupid things before too long, it's science.

    C'mon, jon...


    Hillis has proven to be the type of blue collar, hardworking player that Browns fans can get behind and root for. I don't question his ability to play last Sunday one bit. Strep throat is a nasty thing to have; I was so violently ill with it when I was younger I had to go to the emergency room because I couldn't stop throwing up and I had a high fever. If he says he was too sick to play then I agree with him completely. Besides, why would he willingly sit out a game after his team was riding high after a win the week before?

    And trading him? Seriously? The ONLY transaction they should be making with this guy is giving him a new contract.

    Re: Peyton Hillis

    I think the contract issue has more to do with missing the Dolphins game than people want to believe. That or the Browns are looking for a way to paint Hillis as the bad guy in order to lower his value. the Yankees tried doing the same to Jeter. Makes you curious what kind of money Hillis and his agent are looking for.

    Re: Peyton Hillis

    Agree completey. Obviously, something is/was up. I'm betting he'll be in there for the bulk of the carries after the bye week.....should be fully healthy by then.

    Re: Peyton Hillis

    Well, looking at the massive contracts Chris Johnson and Adrian Peterson have both garnered this year, he's probably looking for a decent chunk of change as well. Probably not as much as what they're making, obviously, but a good amount of money.

    Re: Peyton Hillis

    I really hope so. Absolutely no reason he should have been as non-existent as he was yesterday in the offensive gameplan.

    Re: Peyton Hillis

    I was focusing on Hillis as they panned to him on the sideline. He just looks run-down I think.

    We shall see soon enough.

    Re: Peyton Hillis


    It just seemed so out of place that they go from relying heavily on a guy who has largely proven to be very dependable, and then he misses one game with illness and is punished for doing so. I hope Shurmur enjoyed making his point, because if they had been able to establish the run early on to open up the passing game it might have been a closer game. Instead, Hillis, Hardesty, McCoy, and Smith combined for 22 carries for 84 yards and a 3.8 YPC average, with the smash mouth star running back carrying 10 times for 46 of those yards. What an absolute debacle this whole game was.

    Re: Peyton Hillis

    I don't think Shurmur was trying to make a point, I think Hillis still might not have been 100% ready to carry the load by himself like he usually does. He will get his 25+ carries after the bye week.

    Re: Peyton Hillis

    Giving money to Evan Moore and Chris Gocong instead of Hillis was just... wow ....

    Really the first thing this FO has done that I have really, really disliked.

    Re: Peyton Hillis

    I agree with questioning Gocong's extension. He is making a very good amount of money now and really hasn't shown THAT much to have earned it. But I don't understand how giving Moore a new contract is so "wow." It isn't like they signed him to an outrageous deal, he was signed to a fair deal, and I don't think his $1 million dollar a year contract has any effect in Hillis getting a new deal.

    Re: Peyton Hillis

    I remember seeing tweets on game day (or the day before, I can't remember) that Hillis looked terrible. I really don't have any doubt that he wasn't healthy enough to play.

    Re: Peyton Hillis

    He was signed and hasn't been used at all this season. How does it make sense to sign him.

    Re: Peyton Hillis

    When you say "hasn't been used at all this season" what you really mean is "he hasn't been on the field much, but when he does get on the field he makes plays and is currently leading the team in touchdown receptions" right?

    Re: Peyton Hillis

    Didn't they say Hillis lost 10-12 pounds? I mean, that could be a lasting effect. Why risk getting him hurt because he's not 100%, when you have a bye week next week?
