I think they might just be saying "down the street", could be a flat street - I know people say that all the time around here without it actually being downhill.

Why is this not surprising what so ever? I can easily see him doing this lol, he's always been that type of player. That said, he won't be on any of my teams next year. Nothing to do with the Madden cover, just don't see him coming anywhere close to those numbers again. For all we know Cleveland might let him get some FB reps if Hardesty plays well. Too much of that production seemed to be due to lack of healthy RB's, and I never was really excited to get a RB for Cincy or Cleveland knowing 4 games are vs Baltimore and Pittsburgh a year.

I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss Hillis the guy is a beast. There was only one RB that scored more TDs than Hillis last year (several tied him). Hardesty is no slouch he has a similar skill set to Hillis, but Hardesty doesn't have as much bulk. Remember Hardesty also had knee problems in college. Both backs can run between the tackles and catch passes out of the backfield, but Madden curse aside I see Hillis as the more durable of the two.

I see a RBBC with Hillis as the lead back getting 60% to 70% of the touches.

Yea he definately isn't just letting a truck chase him down a hill. I think that might bring up some small safety issues. It probably means a flat street.

I think you may be onto something. My understanding is that he is trying to work on his speed and I can't imagine a better way to improve one's 40 time than downhill truck pull. Good times. :-D

On Saturday, the Browns' bulldozing back planned to pull a fire truck across a football field.

LOL. Let me see if I understand this. He plans on pulling a fire truck. He must have the dumbest agent in the world. Hello, Hillis Towing? No, this is Hillis blowing it than anything else. Blow a knee pulling a truck and you'll be lucky to get a job washing a fire truck.
You make you living using your amazing physical abilities to play football, not to be a cheap circus act. You should understand that, and your agent should darn well know it. So drop the truck pull nonsense, fire your agent, and go do some charity work if you want the attention.
Or go practice doing wheelies with your bike like any respectable Brown would.
Geez I sure wish the season would start.
