Governor Christie Today Show Profile

Jamie Gangel of NBC News profiled NJ Governor Chris Christie whose stock has recently been rising as a possible Presidential candidate in 2012. This video was not only on the Today Show but as well as on Morning Joe and The Daily Rundown which airs on MSNBC.

Will he run for President in 2012? He says "no" but so did Barack Obama in 2006 when he was helping other Democrats in the 2006 Midterm Elections.

Peyton Hillis

On March 14th 2010 the Cleveland Browns traded away QB Brady Quinn to the Denver Broncos in exchange for RB/FB Peyton Hillis and some draft choices. At the time Hillis was not expected to make a large impact on the team considering the emergence of RB Jerome Harrison and the drafting of RB Monterio Hardesty. But due to injuries and ineffectiveness Hillis has been given a chance to play and through 4 games he has played well and been a bright spot in an otherwise pedantic start to the season. Hopefully after every four games the Browns play this season I will post Peyton Hillis' stats through those games, and since yesterday was the 4th game of the season here is a look at what Hillis has done:
Week 1: @ TB 9 Att. 41 Yds. 1 TD
Week 2: KC 8 Att. 35 Yds. 1 TD
Week 3: @ Bal 22 Att. 144 Yds. 1 TD
Week 4: Cin 27 Att. 102 Yds. 1 TD
Total through Week 4: 66 Att. 322 Yds. 4.9 Yards/Carry 4 TDs
