Did you see Hillis this year? He didn't play anything close to resembling a #1 back. That is when he was even able to step on the field or wasn't crying. I don't see why Cleveland would even want him back after the way he acted last year. He could learn a lot from Arian about how to conduct his business.

Hey this wasn't my fantasy. Cleveland just called and asked. So I told them what it would take to move Tate. We love Tater here in H-town. Foster and Tate are a great backfield.

Last I heard, Hillis wasn't even sure he wanted to play him some football anymore. Maybe he just doesn't want to play him some football in CLE. Provided Hillis passes a physical and an interview, I would consider taking Hillis and a 2 and 3 in return for Tate. But like I say, we love us some Tate and are not really interested in moving him. Just answering the phone and the question asked. Give us a 1 and make this easy on me. You don't want me to think about this one too hard. Did I mention we love Tate? On second thought, no thanks. We will just sit pat.

How's the hunt for Peyton working out up there in CLE? Now that RGIII will be off the board, you guys gonna trade down or what?

Pretty sure we'll trade down. Either Coples, or Richardson likely. Just keep stockpiling picks so that we can get better.

I have faith in this regime and I know the Texans have had the same kind of luck as us Cleveland fans (only not nearly as bad). But I feel a connection with the fans in Houston because we've had the same football disasters.

That's what I would do. Trade back for picks. Blackmon is not the solution. Heck no one player is the solution. WAS will learn that lesson, and unfortunately for that franchise they mortgaged the farm.

Three firsts for RGIII? You have to be insane to make a deal like that. I'm glad the Browns weren't willing to comply.

Trade down, get another second and draft Coples. Sure up this defense and get some WR's to TRY and help Colt McCoy for one more season. We should be bad enough next year to get a Matt Barkley/Tyler Bray/Tyler Wilson/Landry Jones/Aaron Murray anyways. QB class is DEEP.

You don't think so? He's got AP written all over him. You don't see those kind of backs often.

I actually liked Richardson before he put on all of that weight. He lost some explosiveness in my opinion. But he reminds me of a bigger, stronger Maurice Jones-Drew. He's just tough to bring down. I think the Browns should draft this kid. My only concern would be him staying healthy, but you could say that about every running back really.

lol @ Trent Richardson or RG3 being a "once in a decade player".

I don't even know anything about college football and I know that much. C'mon now with this ****.

EDIT: That said, RGIII is much closer to that distinction. But in a draft with Andrew Luck, who's touted as the best QB prospect since like, Elway? No.

RGIII was in a system at Baylor catering to his every ability. Let's see what this guy can do in the NFL under center with good defenses coming at him.

He's also extremely small framed and prone to injury. Ala Michael Vick.

He's going to another system that'll cater to his every ability. If the Redskins surround him with talent the sky is the limit with that coaching staff bringing him along.

Where are they going to get this talent though? They don't have a first round pick until 2015..

Remind me who has more yards from scrimmage and TDs over the last two seasons? AP or UDFA?

Yeah once a decade is probably over the top since they are within the same decade.

Maybe a little over the top, but Trent Richardson type RB's don't come around too often.

Fair enough. But there is a huge difference between college ball and the NFL. Tate has proven he can be successful in the NFL. And for the record, I do not want to see him traded.
