    And for those of us thinking Hillis would be a good fit here, looks like it won't be happening any time soon.

    Wow, then does that mean the Browns are going to try and get McNabb or Vick or does it mean they will be looking for a QB in the draft?

    I wonder if Quinn can salvage his young career with the Broncos?

    think the browns are content to have wallace start this year and maybe get a qb in the draft

    The Browns signed Delhomme I think. Yesterday or Friday.

    They should've just traded Quinn for Hillis and some lottery tickets. That's like, nothing at all really.

    Well, Mike Holmgren is running the show and I trust his judgement so we shall see....

    On a side note Kamerion Wimbley, the OLB is being traded to the Raiders.

    When the Browns traded up to take Brady Quinn, I thought that was the steal of the draft. Most of us were going nuts thinking we had our future hall of famer QB.

    Then the awfullsome Browns organization took over and ruined any chance he had.

    Oh well, just another wasted pick, one among many.

    Quinn is the right type of QB for the type of offense Denver is putting together.

    I think Quinn can be high completion passer if he is surrounded by people who can catch the ball. Broncos are going to a grind it out running game with solid accurate passing, and a studly D.

    I'm so pissed off that we didn't find a way to get Peyton Hillis over here.

    Me too!!!!

    Looks like a high draft pick will be used on a RB.

    Hillis would have been great fit in the ZBS. IMHO

    Yep, Shanahan and Holmgren see the value in Hillis. Probably the one player from Denver that many saw the most value in and there is not a whisper from our side the last couple of years on attempting acquire.

    You must be referring to Delhomme. Because Quinn's passes are so poorly thrown, even DBs can't catch them.

    I totally agree...

    I never thought Quinn was a guaranteed HOFer... but he'll do very well in the system McDaniels wants in Denver..

    Tom Brady has got the intangibles that make a great QB, but that is a very QB friendly system. Quinn is as athletic and talented as Brady, and more so than Cassell..

    Depending on how those draft picks turn out.. the Broncos may be on to something.

    I have nothing against this guy personally, and maybe Cleveland will prove me wrong, but there has not been a more over discussed and thought about player on this board than Hillis. A FB/RB hybrid no different than Leonard Weaver or Snelling in Atlanta who I rarely see a peep on. Nice player to have, but we would still need a real RB if he were a Texan.

    Agreed

    But a Mathews/Hillis/Slaton trio would've looked great.

    1.Mathews-Young every down RB that this team has never had.
    2.Hillis-Young short yardage RB,can fill in if Mathews is injured,has great hands
    3.Slaton-Hope he makes it back from injury,can be a great 3rd down RB. Can fill in in case of injury.
