Browns all pro Line-Man Joe Thomas and the Kansas City Chiefs running back Peyton Hillis have taken turns exchanging jabs through the Media this week. Neither guy had kind words to exchange towards each other. Thomas said Hillis was toxic in the Browns locker room and on the field and the team and the players didn’t want him here and Hillis said Thomas is acting like an old girlfriend you break up with. The question now becomes what kind of welcome back Browns fans will give the guy they helped put on the Madden Cover?
The Cleveland Browns take on the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday in game that not only sees the return of a former Browns running back it will also feature a former Cleveland Head coach in Romeo Crennel, a former Cleveland quarterback with Brady Quinn and a pass rush that can take Weeden off his game in a heart beat. This match up has all the making of a WWE grudge match. Things could get ugly quick in this contest. Neither team has any love loss for one another. The Chiefs and the Browns are coming off wins and for the Browns a win would mean 3 in a row for a team that has struggled to find 4 wins this season.
You can bet on the fact that Romeo Crennel and his Chiefs want this one. The Kansas City defense is going to bring the pressure and for Joe Thomas and the rest of his offensive line-men they are going to have plenty to deal with in protecting their quarterback. I think they should start to focus on their protection schemes and spend less time worrying about how toxic Hillis was in the Browns locker room. The Browns offensive line will be tested in this one. Brandon Weeden’s health depends on the offensive line being able to provide protection. It is time to take it to the field Joe Thomas.
