|Peyton Hillis of the Cleveland Browns.|
There is a bit of prejudice in my plea. I live in Cleveland and grew up here. I've lived through the downs of the Browns - very few ups to report. However, this past season, which ended with a pitiful 5-11 record had one huge bright spot - Peyton Hillis.
After acquiring Hillis from the Denver Broncos, who had given up on him, Peyton Hillis pounded, kicked, stomped, jumped and plowed his way in brutish fashion to a total of 1,177 rushing yards and 11 rushing TD's. He also had 477 receiving yards and 2 receptions for touchdowns.
In Cleveland, we love him. He's rough and rugged and really embodies the hard-nosed town that Cleveland is.
Hillis is in the finals against Michael Vick. Vick had a great year after returning to football following a prison stint for running illegal dog fights. So, he's a convicted felon. Need I say more? If Pete Rose can be banned from baseball and the Hall of Fame for placing bets, Michael Vick should not be playing football for killing dogs. But the NFL is much more lenient than MLB.
I don't have a problem with Vick playing again, I simply think that Pete Rose got a bad deal and there are better role models than Vick. Peyton Hillis is a role model that you'd be proud to have your child emulate.
So, get out the vote. Vote now and pass this on to all of your friends. It's down to a ferocious runner and a felonious passer. Vote now for Peyton Hillis of the Cleveland Browns.
