Peyton Hillis tries to throw a forward pass to Brady Quinn, with predictable results

Doug Farrar
Shutdown Corner

You wouldn't expect Kansas City Chiefs running back Peyton Hillis to be the first guy named Peyton to throw a pass in Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos, but you would be wrong. On third-and-3 from the Denver 16-yard line with 9:30 left in the first quarter, Kansas City offensive coordinator Brian Daboli called a play that Tony Sparano probably would have thrown out of his Alleged Tim Tebow Playbook. We'll have the video later, but you can see it here, and we have a little frame-by-frame breakdown of the carnage.

You'll see Chiefs quarterback Brady Quinn seemingly ready to take the snap, but that's not how this is going to go.

The Chiefs seem to have a scoring opportunity... (

Hillis takes the direct snap as Quinn runs a wheel route (kind of a square wheel) and No. 40 rolls right, preparing to throw.

...but playcalling is the best End Zone Repellent. (

Hillis, who has thrown precisely two passes in his NFL career (both in 2010 for the Cleveland Browns), threw a fleeber across his body to a wide-open Quinn, who has caught one pass in his NFL career (in 2009, for the Cleveland Browns), and wasn't aware of how to adjust to a "throw" like this. The Chiefs had to settle for a Ryan Succop field goal after that play, blowing the momentum from what was actually a pretty nice drive.

This is the result of a bad idea. (

Who was the Browns' offensive coordinator in 2009 and 2010? You guessed it -- Brian Daboli. Coach, we'd like to suggest that you leave this call in the same place you have any old Browns playbooks lying around.
