    Any Razorback fan will tell you that there is no love lost between Peyton and Nutt. Peyton isn't likely to play for Nutt again.

    Watching Hillis play in Kansas City each week has really soured me on him. I expect so much more when he came from Cleveland. I can tell you the Chef fans are ready to see him go if that tells you anything.

    Not interested.

    He's not done anything really for the last 2 years. He couldn't even find his way on the field, for the most part, this last season.

    No thanks.

    None of our RBs have ever been Madden cover boys. So, why not?

    :D

    Agree with this.

    But... What was the issue between Hillis and Nutt that you guys are talking about?

    I've heard more than a few times that Hillis was not a good teammate.
    Selfish and self-centered were two things that tended to show up.
    I don't know him so I really don't know how true it is. But normally when it comes up multiple times from different origins, there's some truth to it.

    being in cleveland i can tell you that he came in as a fan and media favorite but in the end they could not get rid of him fast enough mostly because of a big head and selfish behavior

    no thanx

    The way he handled his contract situation in Cleveland was bizarre.

    The spark of the question is that Hillis and Nutt has ties as both were at Arkansas.

    As another poster already pointed out, that logic is not very sound as they did not get along so I doubt Nutt would want him here nor would Hillis wish to be here.

    Even if they did get along and only had a positive history and relationship with each other....his injury history the last couple years and his contract stunt with cleveland leads me to believe the cowboys would be better served just drafting another RB in the mid to lower rounds or looking elsewhere in FA.

    In other words...not a good idea for a multitude of reasons.

    Peyton Hillis and Houston Nutt can't stand each other. Peyton wouldn't play through a thigh bruise and Nutt called him soft. Nutt was famous for forcing kids to play despite injuries with little to no regard for their well-being, but in this case he was right. Hogs had won 10 straight with DMac in the Wildcat and then Hillis goes out and they lose 3 straight. It was a VERY questionable injury.

    I think Murray is a hell of a short yardage back. What we need is some SPEED back or I'll settle for another Murray.

    Ok, thanks, so it was similar to what happened in Cleveland. No good.

    Also, there's the matter of the fact that Nutt hasn't been offiically announced and Broaddus claims he's not being considered for a coaching staff position.

    Rather not.

    I don't see a need for a short yardage guy because I think Murray can get the job done. I don't think Hillis would do as well at it to be quite honest. He doesn't look like the guy who was trucking people in Cleveland and after seeing a guy's play drop so much when he didn't get a new contract, I'd rather not have to deal with him.

    Murray can handle it just fine. If it's spelling Murray you are worried about, short yardage seems like a pretty bad situation to be willing to take a hit in just to get him some rest.

    Keep an eye on Jacob Hester if you want a guy for short yardage. Not quite as tall as Hillis but stocky and only a few pounds lighter. He seemed to get give Denver some goal line action when all their other players went down. With McGahee running pretty well in the last two seasons (although coming off injury), Moreno looking save his roster spot this season and their rookie Hillman, a short yardage guy might not be in the plans for Denver.

    He's no better in those situations than DeMarco.

    If he's back on the juice I'd take a look at Hillis, other than that, I think he's pretty much done in the NFL.

    Peyton Hillis is a nut case (no pun intended). Don't want him anywhere near Dallas.
