This is not meant to start a flame war, but I am truly interested in seeing the different opinions out there. When Hillis was traded to the Browns, I recall many a fan who were quite upset. To them he had shown enough to warrant a 1b if not 1a tailback position. The FO at the time disagreed and shipped him off to Cleveland. Fans were livid.
Tebow had shown enough in many a fan's eyes to warrant the starting job in 2012. The FO disagreed and Tebow is now a Jet.
My question is this. Why was the vitriol and anger spewed after the Hillis trade not met with the same accusations and questioning of true "fandom", shall we say, that the Tebow trade was? I am interested to see the response.
