It was refreshing, to say the least, to see an NFL player rip a former teammate without hiding behind the cloak of anonymity. But now that Brown left tackle Joe Thomas has said what he said about Chiefs running back Peyton Hillis and Hillis has responded by calling Thomas a “crazy ex-girlfriend,” Thomas has nothing more to say.
“I’ve answered my last Peyton Hillis question this week,” Thomas said Friday, via the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
The exchange between Hillis and Thomas was entertaining to say the least, and our only regret is that both men won’t be on the field at the same time.
But maybe they will. Asked whether he’ll play some defense on Sunday, Thomas said, “No plans yet. . . . Don’t tell anyone. It might be a secret.”
He’s joking, obviously. We wish he weren’t.
