Broncos, Browns announce Brady Quinn trade

Shortly after Jay Glazer of Fox Sports broke the story, the Browns and Broncos formally announced that they’ve reached an agreement on a trade that will send quarterback Brady Quinn from Cleveland to Denver.

The Broncos’ announcement said the team gave up fullback Peyton Hillis, a 2011 sixth-round draft pick and a conditional 2012 draft pick to the Browns for Quinn. Assuming Hillis and Quinn pass their physicals, the trade is a done deal.

Most of the space in the Browns’ announcement was devoted to touting the acquisition of Hillis, noting that he played in 28 games with eight starts in his two years with the Broncos and had 81 carries for 397 yards and six touchdowns.

But the real news is about Quinn, who was praised on the way out by Browns coach Eric Mangini.

“I appreciate everything Brady did for us last year and in his three seasons with the Cleveland Browns,” Mangini said. “He is professional in the way he goes about doing his job and worked extremely hard at every aspect of his game. I wish him the best of success in Denver.”

    So let me get this right. They have moved to Delhomme and Wallace. So they trade potential for mediocrity. Quinn should be happy he is out of there.

    this Peyton is a monster running back … not just a fullback …
    I’ll never forget him running through my “Fins like a hot knife thru butter …
    then again, he wasn’t the only running back to accomplish that feat … :-)

  4. rydendonkeys says: Mar 14, 2010 5:38 PM

    HORRIBLE TRADE!!!
    What a joke.
    Hillis if given a chance could be a 1200 yard rusher with his speed, power, breaking of tackles, and is an excellent reciever.
    Brady Quinn couldn’t beat out Anderson…
    Still can’t make reads in his 3rd season…
    and is so stupid he thought a hockey mom would be a great selection to hold the most powerful position on Earth.
    I really really hope Tom Brandstater beats out Brady Quinn so we can cut him outright and he can go back to groping his buddies.

  5. wwwmattcom says: Mar 14, 2010 5:39 PM

    Say whatever you want, let him marry your daughter. A QB was traded for a fullback and some late round pics.

    Per Quinn Thru Derek Anderson ” They Don’t Deserve a winner” Signed, your hometown boy!

    A player AND two draft choices – what was Denver thinking….

  8. Evpimp says: Mar 14, 2010 5:40 PM

    Quinn will always be a BUST!!!!

  9. bigtrav425 says: Mar 14, 2010 5:40 PM

    LOVE this deal..but id love any deal to get rid of Quinn who should of never been drafted in the 1st anyways…this also means that no RB will be drafted and we are drafting a QB at some point unless our stockpile of picks are traded for Kolb

  10. Calir says: Mar 14, 2010 5:40 PM

    It’s best for Quinn to get out of that grease fire in Cleveland. Another coaching change is coming and that organziation is a long way away from being relevant.

  11. Rex Ryan=Fat Twat says: Mar 14, 2010 5:44 PM

    remember on draft day when people were saying dolphins should of drafted brady quinn instead of ted ginn? dead wrong

  12. JakeDSnake says: Mar 14, 2010 5:44 PM

    Maybe the high altitude will help to make up for his lollipop arm.
    …and to help him adjust a little easier, the Broncos should trade his top two receivers.

  13. Larry David says: Mar 14, 2010 5:46 PM

    This trade is a steal for Denver. They dumped some Fullback they never played anyway and Quinn will be a stud in Mcdaniels system. I mean, his system made Orton and Cassel look good.

  14. csloan99 says: Mar 14, 2010 5:47 PM

    A 5th string RB and a 6th round pick for a backup QB. Is this really news?

  15. ArtModellsPimp says: Mar 14, 2010 5:48 PM

    …and don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.

    So and now Quinn for Cassel, or what? :)
    Not going to happen.

  19. C.Bass says: Mar 14, 2010 5:50 PM

    I’m not sure which way to go on this one, either Brady know has a chance to succeed or now the browns can draft the next ND QB who will fail in the NFL.
    Another browns 1st round pick gone….

  20. Paulitik says: Mar 14, 2010 5:51 PM

    Damn! Peanuts for a 1st round QB? I’m no Brady Quinn fan, but he couldn’t garner a 3rd rounder? This could turn out to be a helluva pick-up for Denver.

  21. JSpicoli says: Mar 14, 2010 5:53 PM

    So instead, our smart country elected a professional charlatan/community organizer.
    I’ll take the American side, not the socialist.

  22. FumbleNuts says: Mar 14, 2010 5:54 PM

    Good move for the Browns……… Not so good for Denver.
    Quinn is way too gun shy and has absolutely no accuracy throwing the rock.

  23. BOSSMAN23 says: Mar 14, 2010 5:55 PM

    Hillis is a beast. He’s going to be a nice complement to Jerome Harrison. Broncos get a QB with potential, Brady Quinn, for pretty little pick wise, and RBs are replaceable. But seriously, the Browns either have to make a move for Sam Bradford, Jimmy Clausen, or Troy Smith, because Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace just won’t cut it.

  24. BrooklynNiner19 says: Mar 14, 2010 5:56 PM

    should be a good place for Quinn. i guess they hope he turns out to be a Jay Cutler. =/

  25. UCantSpellLoseWithoutDetroitLions says: Mar 14, 2010 5:56 PM

    A first round pick for a FB and a couple of round picks. Ouch! I guess the Dolphons knew what they were doing passing on Quinn back in ’07 draft. Thank you Cleveland for supplanting Detroit as the worst drafting team in the NFL.

  26. spliffbunker says: Mar 14, 2010 5:58 PM

    Quinn has to be better than what Chris Simms was last year but Peyton Hillis was a beast on 2008…reminded me of Mike Alstott with more elusiviness & Shanahan said something to the effect that Hillis was the best pass receiving back he has had…
    very sorry to see him go but glad he will get a chance to play…its a major mystery to me why McDaniels thought Lamont Jordan was a better option but I guess it fits with the program (or pogrom) of destroying what was once a very good young offensive team
    next to go in the give-away is Tony Scheffler I’m betting…

  27. Thedecoder says: Mar 14, 2010 6:00 PM

    Josh “Doogie” Mc Daniel strikes again. This guy doesn’t have a clue. I live in the Denver area and go to most Broncos games and love Hillis’ efforts.
    McDaniel trades away a tough 110% effort Running Back and two late picks for a guy living off of his college reputation for the last 3 years. He also sets up a situation where he has 2 young QBs competing for the starting Qb job. This is certain to divide the Broncos locker room and cause even more problems.
    Denver had (arguably) the best young QB/WR combo in the game when McDaniels took over last year. Cutler is gone and Marshall will likely be gone soon. They have been replaced by Brady Quinn and Eddie Royal. Ouch!

  28. Ubernerd232 says: Mar 14, 2010 6:02 PM

    Cleveland made out like bandits in this trade. At least Bronco fans can take solice that Quinn still isn’t the worst QB in the AFC West. That title still belongs to JaMarcus.

  29. milehiclown says: Mar 14, 2010 6:02 PM

    Say what you want about Hillis (an excellent, physical runner for sure) but at least McD is TRYING to improve positions in a way that fits his philosophy (whatever that is).
    Is there ANYBODY out there that thinks Orton is better than Quinn?
    I actually hope BQ starts. That way McD will either be a winner or a loser and his fate will be of his own making.
    Why McD never USED Hillis is beyond me though. I heard his blocking skills sucked. Seems low on the priority list for a runner…

  30. BroncoBourque says: Mar 14, 2010 6:03 PM

    As a Broncos fan I think this is a great move. As much as I liked Hillis, he clearly didn’t fit what McDaniels was looking for in a running back and barely played last season. There is no guarantee that he was even going to be on the roster this coming season so giving him up isn’t a big loss for the Broncos.
    That bassically makes this deal Quinn for a sixth in 2011 and a conditional pick in 2012 from the Broncos perspective. So bassically nothing and for a guy who was a first round pick a few years ago and never got a real chance in Cleveland. Quinn is also a guy the Broncos were looking at last year and was rumored to be part of the Cutler discussions so to get him for so little now is even better. He played in a very similar offense to McDs while at Notre Dame so his learning curve should be very short.
    I would expect that Simms will be cut or traded very shortly. He looked terrible last season when he played in the regular season and if it is a trade I would expect nothing more than a 7th round pick in return.

  31. BOSSMAN23 says: Mar 14, 2010 6:05 PM

    In response to Rex Ryan, that was a wash. The only bright side of the Fins picking Ted Ginn instead of Brady Quinn was that the Dolphins ended up with Chad Henne a year later. Ginn sucks just as bad as Quinn, but he can return kicks.

  32. OTCderivativeYourAss says: Mar 14, 2010 6:05 PM

    Somehow I don’t think Orton feels threatened. That 6th round pick should be higher, but Hillis is underrated.

  33. scottybee says: Mar 14, 2010 6:08 PM

    You won’t be getting Kolb…

  34. last starfighter says: Mar 14, 2010 6:09 PM

    Quinn has barely had a cup of coffee in the league. The guy has potential and the broncos got him for nothing. I’d say it’s a win for denver. The browns are now faced with yet another rebuilding year and then another one after that when they fire Mangini. They are 2 years away from even having a chance at a winning season.

  35. Laxer37 says: Mar 14, 2010 6:13 PM

    The hockey mom would be looking pretty good compared to Jimmy Carter’s 2nd term.
    Leave your uninformed political opinions off the football page, dumbass.

  37. Richard says: Mar 14, 2010 6:19 PM

    This is a great deal for Denver! Quinn suffered by not having a supporting staff, whether coaching or players, and McDaniels will bring him around. Though I am an Eagles fan living in Denver, Quinn has the potential, again because of the supporting staff here, to flourish. Hillis sucks… and what’s a 6th round draft pick really worth anyway? Jay Novacek, Karl Mechlenburg, Jamal Anderson, Zach Thomas, Richard Dent, Dexter Manley, Shannon Sharpe, Mark CLayton, Hershel Walker, Lester Hayes, Dwight Clark to name a few…

  38. milehiclown says: Mar 14, 2010 6:22 PM

    @ Csloan99: when you are as desperate for wins as we Donks fans are, sadly: yes.

  39. Startled Armadillo says: Mar 14, 2010 6:24 PM

    Due to the terrible management/coaching in Cleveland over the past several years, there was no way Quinn could have stayed in Cleveland…The first time Wallace or Delhomme or whomever else they end up with throws an interception or misses an easy pass, the entire stadium would erupt with chants of “Brady…Brady..Brady…” undermining whatever Holmgren/Mangini were trying to do on the field.

  40. BROWN1954 says: Mar 14, 2010 6:24 PM

    Good for Quinn! The Browns did not give him justice or fair opportunity. He had nobody around him.
    Are you kidding me!? Delhomme now the starter!?
    You think DA threw some interceptions…wait until Delhomme takes the field.
    Same old moves. Nothing new. Grabbing at straws.
    Our stadium is where players go to get their careers ruined!

  41. gwinn1952 says: Mar 14, 2010 6:27 PM

    Maybe Quinn will finally have someone to teach him how to play QB in the NFL….Cleveland failed to do that. He has the talent…someone needs to work with him.

  42. brownsfn says: Mar 14, 2010 6:28 PM

    Stupid f*cking trade HOLMGREN!!!

  43. Lex Luger says: Mar 14, 2010 6:28 PM

    Quinn is ok, but makes a little too much money. Peyton Hillis is a white running back. His lifespan is 2-3 years tops before he breaks down.

  44. sniperhare says: Mar 14, 2010 6:37 PM

    @Lex what does him being white have to do with anyting?

  45. Slow Joe says: Mar 14, 2010 6:38 PM

    Browns are drafting a QB in the first round.

  46. browns10 says: Mar 14, 2010 6:40 PM

    Holmgren know his QB’s. Brady had 3 yrs to take hold of the starting job and failed. Good trade. 10 of 12 picks in first 5 rounds. NOW I’M DONE!

  47. Cleveland Dinker says: Mar 14, 2010 6:40 PM

    Well, rydendonkeys, you certainly have the right username since you are clearly an ass. That hockey mom would run circles around this mulatto (hate to break any liberal hearts but he is only 1/2 black) we got stuck with that has NEVER had a job in the private sector and who most of America has already turned against since he repeatedly lies. November can’t come soon enough. The weak, lazy, stupid and unproductive will be sent back to their caves for another decade.

  50. Big Jake says: Mar 14, 2010 6:47 PM

    Denver got screwed. They could have waited a couple weeks and picked up Quinn for free. Instead, they give the Browns a perfect West Coast Offense RB who can catch the ball and doesn’t go down upon first contact. And picks? Are you kidding me?
    Wow, Heckert is the anti Phil Savage.

  51. ppdoc13 says: Mar 14, 2010 6:52 PM

    Another great 1st round pick by the Clowns. Talk about some major house cleaning.

  52. medic406 says: Mar 14, 2010 6:52 PM

    And the Cleveland debacle continues. The Brown’s organization is a career killer. No one is going to coax Holmgren out of retirement after his Cleveland stint. Armpit of the NFL = the Armpit of America. I really don’t know which is the bigger sh&thole, Cleveland, Detroit, or (insert any village) Afghanistan. What I do know is that the latter is the safest of those options.

  53. BroncoBourque says: Mar 14, 2010 6:56 PM

    For those who keep making comments about all the money Quinn makes, Florio went over this earlier today, the guy is making $750 000 in each of the next two seasons unless he plays at least 70% of his team’s offensive snaps. That is bassically a minimum salary player but one with a lot of potential. With Orton having a good year last season, he will come in as the starter but he also strugled with injuries again. Now the Broncos have Quinn as a very low cost backup with a lot of potential.

  54. FreeAgentPro says: Mar 14, 2010 7:00 PM

    Quinn is going to a Denver team that has a WR crisis. The poor guy just can’t catch a break.

    What is up with Denver picking up Clevelands retreads? He will follow “Big Money” Gerard Warren, Andra Davis, and the others I cannot remember. He will be gone in two years.

  57. Ytsejamer1 says: Mar 14, 2010 7:24 PM

    Gwinn1952 has it right…the guy never got a chance to really play before the Stains would yank him for some other schlep. If memory serves, the almighty Peyton Manning sucked for the first couple of years but was given the chance to take his lumps and develop.
    Brady Quinn should be thrilled with this…McDaniels knows what to do with QB talent and hopefully will be patient enough to let him do his thing.
    The Browns previous regimes have all but squashed Quinn’s career with their mismanagement of the position.

  58. TheWizard says: Mar 14, 2010 7:32 PM

    Denver had (arguably) the best young QB/WR combo in the game
    Cutler is the bust.
    Not McDaniels.

  59. Beauregard says: Mar 14, 2010 7:33 PM

    In the Bronco/Patriot system Brady Quinn will be in the Pro Bowl by his 2nd year. I LOVE this trade.
    Browns got a beast in Hillis. You’ll love his motor.

  60. Orange&Blue says: Mar 14, 2010 7:35 PM

    This is a great trade for the Broncos. They give up a 6th rounder in 2011, another in 2012 and a RB who hardly even gets on the field. In return, they get a QB with tremendous potential.
    All those who say Quinn sucked in Cleveland should realize that Peyton Manning would suck in Cleveland. They are a horrible football team, and a young QB just has no chance there. This is a perfect opportunity for Quinn, and I’m sure he’s thrilled to get out of that dump.
    It’s too bad to see Hillis go, he was a fan favorite. But let’s be honest: He was good in 2008, but in 2009 he was completely ineffective. McDaniels gave him chances, and he squandered them by fumbling on rushing plays, fumbling on kick returns etc.
    The Broncos have owned the Browns over the last 25 years, and it looks like thats going to continue. Suckers…

    WR crisis?? Really??? How so? Marshall, Royal and Stokely are twice as good as any receiver the Browns have(Cribbs is a PR/KR, and as a pure receiver doesn’t measure up to the three above). Marshall wants a trade. So what? That is not a crisis pal.
    By the way – Quinn now has a good O-line to play behind too. If you ask me, he has caught one hell of a break.
    Think before you post.

  63. ispysomething7 says: Mar 14, 2010 7:43 PM

    Cassel for Quinn. That way the fat guy will be reunited with his man crush. To bad the team Brady plays for doesn’t play Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, and U Conn.

    All you moron Hockey Mom supporters, where is the DOW since Obama took office. How about 30 million, contemplate that number, 30 million Americans getting health insurance that otherwise did not.
    That means they can see a doctor, get more preventive care, and have a better life, and stay out of emergency rooms saving the states money.
    Has Obama lied us into a war yet?
    That should be punishable by something worse that life in prison.
    Intentionally lying your country into a war…what possibly could a President do that is worse than that?
    Ever look at what a hypocrite liar McCain is. The guys wife gets into a crushing car accident, and he gets engaged to an heiress while still married to disabled wife…
    What a guy. Hockey mom is a total moron hypocrite that talks in soundbites with no substance to her pathetic Quitter on Twitter existence.

    Not sure why FreeAgentPro thinks Denver has a WR crisis. Eddie Royal anyone? And Brandon Marshall is nothing but a loud-mouthed, immature young man.

  68. Klytus says: Mar 14, 2010 8:03 PM

    So why is Cleveland dumping all the 1st round draft picks? It looks like the Browns are rebuilding again. I believed Brady Quinn wanted to play in Cleveland being a home town boy but for him it was the wrong place at the wrong time.
    Quinn has the talent. He just needs an offensive scheme that will allow him to get into the flow of the game. You know the sweet spot where you’re playing the game and the game is playing you.
    GO STEELERS!

  69. BroncosOrBust says: Mar 14, 2010 8:18 PM

    Wasn’t Quinn on the verge of being cut? Were there any other teams seriously interested in him?

  70. Walshy711 says: Mar 14, 2010 8:22 PM

    As a broncos fan I will trust mcdaniels on this one, but just for now. The thing is Quinn has trouble making his reads, and denver’s system is revolved around easy reads (why theyshould draft a proven leader instead of a 2 game winner last year) but maybe this will work. Not sure. Atleast Quinn has talent around him in Denver compared to that joke of a team called the browns.

  71. Cameltoecleavage says: Mar 14, 2010 8:26 PM

    Wow Peyton Hillis is the equivilemt of like 4 players he plays fb he can play rb he played some lb last year and he plays on special teams and they gave up 2 more players with those picks hahaha

    “Peyton Hillis IS THE MAN.”

  74. Brewster says: Mar 14, 2010 8:49 PM

    Quinn is not a bad pick up for the Broncos. He makes next to nothing (about $700K a year, with incentives that are practically unachievable so he’s playing for his base salary) for a back up QB that may have the potential to be a #1. If he gets #1 QB playing time and actually performs he’ll cost more money.
    Simms was paid $3M last year and is scheduled to receive the same this year. By comparison the Broncos paid Brandon Marshall $530K in 2008 & $2.3 mil in 2009 while paying Simms $3.0M, for one year, go figure.
    Hillis get his “get out of jail free” card and may actually have a chance to play for the Browns, unless he’s joining another Bellichick protegee with an agenda. On second thought Hillis must be wondering what he did wrong to be subjected to playing for two Bellichick wannabees in his NFL career.
    McDaniels seems to be progressing with absolutely no interference from the Denver front office in his quest to dismantle what was once (just two short years ago) the second best offense in the NFL.
    The trading of Hillis opens the door for the Broncos to draft a RB in round 2-3, Toby Gearhardt, who can actually get the ball in the end zone. But based on McDaniels’s drafting prowess last year I’m not holding my breath he’ll do much better this year than last. The boy just doesn’t seem to learn from his mistakes.

  75. mwcarolina says: Mar 14, 2010 8:50 PM

    “HORRIBLE TRADE!!!
    What a joke.
    Hillis if given a chance could be a 1200 yard rusher with his speed, power, breaking of tackles, and is an excellent reciever.
    Brady Quinn couldn’t beat out Anderson”
    losing Hillis bad, but in the end, i see why this happened, Quinn is going to backup Orton and i honestly think Quinn will do well in Denver.

  76. BROWN1954 says: Mar 14, 2010 8:50 PM

    STOP WITH THE POLITICS! YOU POLITICAL BOZOS ARE IDIOTS! THIS IS A FOOTBALL BLOG!!!!!!! SHUT THE HELL UP…..RIGHT OR LEFT!!!
    Now…with that said, Quinn may have been with the Browns for 3 years. But his playing time was always at the wrong time. He was given no good reason to have the confidence a starting QB has to have. He was not coached well at all. He never had a good team of blockers or receivers around him. That’s not a recipe for developing a young quarterback. And, it’s not fair to criticize him for the lack of success. We had one really bad football team! The QB can’t do it all.
    The Browns will regret this trade. If Denver gets Quinn the necessary receiving corp, he will flourish in McDaniels system. He will come back to beat our clown system.
    Unfortunately for us in Cleveland, our management can’t even figure out which way the water rotates in a toilet bowl……let alone know how to make it to a super bowl!

    Anyone who thinks Peyton Hillis is going to rush for a 1,000 yards next season is a moron. Hillis will be lucky to get a handful of carries behind Harrison. Hillis will a decent amount of dinks and dunks when he’s the only one open.

    Klytus, Did you watch any Browns games last year, The guy cant play. He is very bad with accuracy, He had 8 TDs last year, and 4 were in the Detroit game. The fact Holmgren got anything for him is a major steal. Good luck with him, you will need it.

    @rydendonkeys….give it up brother, there is no talking to idiots. i stopped doing it because they never let a fact get in the way of an argument. your reasoning is perfect but it falls on deaf and dumb ears. PAM OLIVER IS FINE.

    You just gotta love some of the Bronco homer posts like this one:

    By the way – Quinn now has a good O-line to play behind too. If you ask me, he has caught one hell of a break.
    Think before you post.
    ________________
    That last sentence was priceless.
    Lets see McDaniels threw the O-line under the bus last year and replaced most of them with subs/scrubs (you pick) from other teams who have yet to perform in the Broncos offense. The O-line was disposed of supposedly because they couldn’t block. At the moment they don’t even have a starting Center. Ryan Clady, as good as he is is going to have a hell of a time getting used to all new players playing next to him.
    Yeah, Quinn’s got a great o-line and great Wr’s too especially once Brandon Marshall’s gone.
    You might consider following your own advice….and think before you post. And don’t let your passion for your home team take precedence over reality.

    @ Orange&Blue
    Hillis squandered his chances? McDaniels gave him chances? he got buried after the fumbled kick return…4 carries in the first 11 weeks hardly corresponds to giving him a chance…then against KC he came in at the end of a blowout with the ball near the Broncos goal line & ran 7 straight times for 47 yards to run the clock out…McDaniels rewarded him with 2 carries over the last 4 games..
    for those who wonder why there is gnashing of teeth about trading a back-up tailback/fullback :

    Quinn will be in yet ANOTHER drama filled off-season. Have fun with that Broncos fans.

  83. BroncFanOr says: Mar 14, 2010 9:57 PM

    The only Homers on here are the ones with a mancrush on a FULLBACK.
    Hillis played a couple of games when they didn’t matter and only because he HAD to due to injury.
    Your kidding yourself if you think he’s going to be great.
    He’s going to be BLOCKING more than RUNNING the ball you myopic twits.

    Everyone who is hating on Peyton Hillis needs to go back and look at his 2008 rookie season. He stepped in because of injury and ripped every team he played against to pieces. If it wasn’t for the injury he would have single handedly vaulted the Broncos to the playoffs that year. Hillis is the next Mike Alstott

    Now Miami can trade Ginn and a 2 for Marshall and the cycle will be complete.
    Quinn to Ginn would be great for Miami fans

  86. Stealthhawk says: Mar 14, 2010 10:39 PM

    Weird trade.
    If I were a Broncos fan, I’d be mad that the team traded away a beast of a FB for somebody like Brady Quinn.
    But if I were a Browns fan, I’d be mad that the team favored an interception machine (Delhomme) and a career back-up (Wallace) over a QB that still has the potential to turn the corner.

  87. JeterLeto says: Mar 14, 2010 10:53 PM

    @ rydendonkeys
    You are an idiot. Go back to your socialist blogs, pretend there is global warming and hateing America. This is football not CNN.
    @Lex Luger
    So because he is a white guy his “lifespan” goes down? Really?
    Trade works out for both teams. Quinn needs a new start and denver is a good system for him.

  88. Dawgpound2009 says: Mar 14, 2010 11:00 PM

    Another typical dumbass Browns move. The idiots cannot work a trade for Brandon Marshall even with all those draft picks.
    Brady Quinn is far from the greatest QB on the face of the earth but he deserved more a chance than Mr. Butterworth Jr. (Mangini) and Mr. Butterworth Sr. (Crennel) gave him. It doesnt matter. Mangini is a dead man walking in Cleveland. Jake Delhomme will help shovel the remaining few feet of dirt he has left on his coaching grave. Quinn and Anderson had no receivers to throw to so one cannot totally blame them. We will see how long it is before Jake the Mistake is riding the pine.
    The final act of this saga will be to see if the Browns land a quarterback in the draft. One can only hope with 12 draft picks, they take a chance of on one but these are the Browns. You never know. Good luck Brady

    Ok boy wonder, lets actually look at what your saying here.:
    How did McD throw the O-line under the bus??? – Show me a quote where McDaniels trashes the line. Never happened.
    What subs and scrubs from other teams??? -not even one guy brought in from another team
    Nobody on the line was disposed of because they couldn’t block. -We did let a 38 yr old center go…..oh no! Everyone must be getting disposed of.
    Why would Clady have a ‘hell of a time getting used to all new players next to him’??? – First of all, there are no new players next to him. In fact, Ben Hamilton might move from G to C, so even the hole at center could be filled with a current Bronco. Secondly, if they do bring new players in why would Clady have ‘a hell of a time’ getting used to it? What are you basing that opinion on?
    You are a moron.

    I assume that “homer” comment is directed at me since I didn’t see it on any other posts.
    BroncoFanOr, or Dummy Dave, as you’re sometimes referred to on the Denver Post website, if you read and actually comprehended my post you would know that I said nothing about Peyton Hillis, or a fullback, or made any comment on his performance or potential.
    What I said is that another poster was incorrect about the Broncos having a good o-line for Quinn to play behind.
    If Quinn didn’t perform well, and he didn’t, behind Joe Thomas, Eric Steinbach, Alex Mack, Hank Fraley & John St.Clair of the Browns, a formidable front line all over 300lbs, I find it hard to believe Quinn will perform well behind whatever front line McDaniels finally comes up with.

  91. Sasquash says: Mar 15, 2010 3:08 AM

    I think this is a good trade for both teams. The Broncos get a young QB in B.Quinn with some potential, who may or may not develope into a good player. The Browns get a good solid RB in P.Hillis, who plays hard and should get more chances in Cleveland. The fact is after J.Harrison who knows what the Browns have at RB, now they have a proven hard working RB/FB.
    The Walrus wants his own guy at QB, that much we know. Quinn is part of the last crew and may not have been given enough of a real chance to do well in Cleveland.
    As for goverment elected officals, there all bleapholes. They are all selfish, greedy, scumbags who should be in jail. Obama had a year where the donkeys butts had control of everything and he did nothing. McCain wanted to lose and thats why he picked that klutz in Alaska. America needs to wake up and fight for change, the current political system is flawed from top to bottom. Politicians take money from lobbist, corporations, unions, insurance companies and many of the other big money crooks who want you to give your hard earned money away to them. Put money into this country, put it into infrastructure, buy American made products, stop making other countries rich while we continue to spend are money on wars and weapontry we don’t need. Wake up America!!!!

    Hillis is a complete animal he will be missed tremendously by fans in denver especially me, but this trade makes sense. wish mcdaniels would have just given him a chance. hillis should play RB NOT FB by the way, dude kills it. check him out on youtube

  93. Bob Nelson says: Mar 15, 2010 9:29 AM

    THERE IS NO 2012 DRAFT!!
    David Michael Smith should have realized this and put in something reminding you readers that there is no 2012 draft.
    For all of you who don’t like the trade that is something to consider about the deal.
    The new CBA might or might not have a draft.

  94. raidresnation says: Mar 15, 2010 3:52 PM

    Another year of watching McDaniels pumping himself up, only to miss the playoffs.
    Love watching the Raiders destroy Dumpver at home every year.
    Love watching Joshie poop his pants.
