Hillis: “He’s kind of like a crazy ex-girl friend.”

From the Truman Sports Complex

Earlier this week, Cleveland Browns Pro Bowl OT Joe Thomas blasted former teammate, now Chiefs running back Peyton Hillis. Thomas said that last season in Cleveland, Hillis was more concerned about getting a new contract than he was in helping his teammates win games.

Saying he hadn’t read the comments, Hillis seemed to know plenty about them as he spoke with the Kansas City media after practice on Thursday.

“Joe Thomas can have his opinions all he wants,” Hillis said. “He’s kind of like a crazy ex-girl friend; it’s been over a year, get over it.

“When you get paid over $100 million from one team it’s kind of easy to hate on other guys to get another contract … I’ve gone on with my life.”

Does all this make for an emotional return to Cleveland on Sunday for Hillis when the Chiefs face the Browns?

“Not really; I don’t have any bitterness, resentment or regrets,” said Hillis. “I did what I did. There are always things you wish that you can do better, but now is now and I’ve got to do what is best for me now.

“I look forward to going back there. It’s a great atmosphere and I really enjoyed the fans there.”

    I have a comment for Joe Thomas. Its easy for him to bad mouth Peyton Hillis because Joe Thomas got paid in an “OBSCENE” way. Now, he bad mouths Peyton because he wanted to get paid as well. Easy for him to say because he “got his”. I say screw Joe Thomas.

    Disagree Chuck…Hillis quit on the Browns when he was there and I think as a member of a team, that’s one of the worst things you can do. Thomas was very honest in his opinions about Hillis, including saying some positive things about him as well. What do you want him to say?

    I am very glad we only signed Hillis for one year.
