As we all know, the higher-up management in Cleveland made a giant mistake this past year in trading our franchise QB Brady Quinn to the Broncos for Peyton Hillis.

Peyton Hillis? Who is this guy? A nobody. He came into Cleveland with only 397 yards rushing in two years. TWO YEARS. Jerome Harrison could double Hillis's productivity in 3 games! Do not even get me started on the Jerome Harrison trade!

Brady Quinn was being groomed as our Franchise QB. Colt McCoy was our backup; the short Texas kid does not have what it takes to be an NFL starter. Brady Quinn may not have the best the QB rating, but look who he has to throw to. Massa-who? Moore-what? Cribbs? If he had the likes of Calvin Johnson, Miles Austin, or if we even had Edwards back, Brady Quinn would be the star child.

Sending Quinn to the Broncos was a terrible mistake, and Josh Daniels now has his starting QB for the next 11 years in Notre Dame Boy. OK, Hillis has fun running the ball two times a game when it's short yardage, but we will stick with Mike Bell and Thomas Clayton for our yardage.

Let's get in our DeLoreans and get back our franchise quarterback for this no-name, fat running back in Hillis. Thanks Cleveland management. Way to trade away our winning season.
