Breaking news: Colts trade for Trent Richardson (((merge)))

Recommended Posts

Gonna need some time to digest this one.  Can't really say it was a terrible pick.  He's a 2nd year guy, I mean, it's not like we gave up a first for a 28 year old.  And if we end up middle of the draft next year, probably would have been a steal, but we gotta hit on our later draft picks.

I don't know what on earth the Browns are thinking?! You don't trade a franchise RB like TR.

 

No such thing anymore. Adrian Peterson is the lone exception.

My confidence in Grigson just plummeted

 

This move doesn't undo all the good he's done, but I don't like it. I like the player, he makes us better, but I hate that we gave up a first rounder.

We're likely picking in the teens anyway. To get a top 5 or at worst top 10 talent like TR is amazing! 

thats true...im not sure how to feel right now. he is supposed to be pretty good, he is a top 5 talent. on teh other hand he is injured a lot. Also, why the heck did we sign Bradshaw for?

if we pick in the teens i guess if he keeps healthy this would be great deal but man.. i dotn know haha

 

really, really possible. RT @NateDunlevy Sure hope they didn't just deal a top-10 pick. I believe it's possible.

Not sure quite what to think about this move......

 

I need to digest it and think it over. I am not sure I like the idea of giving up a first rounder though if we don't make the playoffs. If we make the playoffs then I might not mind but we have a really tough schedule ahead of us here.

 

Seems Irsay/Grigson won't give up on this team either. They really want it to succeed......

It's an okay move, that could turn up gold or bust. 

 

On a side note Trent is killing my fantasy team..I hope he doesn't kill our team.

This is definitely a HUUUUGE deal, but it's also rather silly.

Not silly at all for Cleveland....they will now probably get the 1st pick overall in 2014...hello, Johnny Football.

Not sure if I like giving up a first rounder but he has so much potential, really needs to stay healthy.  He is a major upgrade to Ballard and will be great with Bradshaw.

 

If he stays healthy we should have a great QB and RB.

 

Unlike most on this forum the commitment to the run is not all that exciting considering this league is a passing league and unless you have a shutdown D you will have to pass the ball.

 

Either way I like the move and I think it makes us a much better team, we will be a force in the very near future which for me is 2014.  This year I expect good things but I had tempered my expectations before the season.

 

I like where we are headed GO COLTS :blueshoe:

People drastically overvalue first round draft picks.

Never quite understood it myself.

I dont want to make, so who will do it?

An official Fire Grigson thread needs to be made after this. God help him if this ends up being a top 5 or 10 pick. He seems to be overrating this team.

Giving up a first rounder for a RB is the problem I have with it....it boggles my mind.

Right, and the issue with this team on O is the OL.   Not the RB position.     UGHHH..

 

oh well...    we shall see.

 

I do not like coughing up draft picks for "under preforming" FORMER draft picks.

 

 

I'm excited about getting a really good, potentially GREAT player, but I'm very dissatisfied if we really gave up a first rounder.

I don't think the Ballard injury was an expected one.

Thank you Ryan Grigson for explaining your actions. We appreciate you!

 

In Grigson we TRUST!!

Well this one has the "potential" to be a really NICE one...    if it turns out to be in the late teens to twenties ..  cool.

 

But if it is top 10......    ughhhhhhhh

Exactly. The draft is a crapshoot. With TR we know what we get.

I usually don't like taking rbs in the first round, but TRich is a special talent. 

 

The problem isnt his ability. It's his ability to stay healthy.

It wont be a top 10 pick. We're picked 15-20. Maybe lower.

I agree, I agree, I agree.

 

But Richardson is a really good back, better than anyone we've had since 2000 Edgerrin James. There's upside now, but giving up a first is strange. We had better make the playoffs, otherwise that pick is going to be much more valuable than the player.

The most important ability is... what again?

Wonder if they'll give us Joe Haden too. I think he's a pretty good CB. Or even give us a pass rusher or hey, Joe Thomas or one of their other good lineman :D

Hughes Brown Gonzalez where first round picks, so I rather trade for a starting RB then strike out completely

    • Seems odd in general that it took so long.  Outside of the guy in SD, we rarely hear why someone holds out this long on a mundane contract with so little to quibble over. 
    • One thing I’ll say about Bob though, his small size & Wolverine (comic book character) mentality made him a terror against the run.  With him already being short, when he went submarine on a RB, they really risked their careers if their feet were planted when the Colonel was coming for them.  He turned so many guys into tip toe bandits or sent them helicoptering into the air.  No wonder our run defense was so stout.  Usually only took 1 “meeting” with Bob in the hole, to put fear in the RB’s head the rest of the game...  You had to know where he was at all times or kiss your knees goodbye.
    • I have to disagree with the last sentence. I think Sean Taylor (The former Hurricane & Redskin safety) was and would have statistically been better than all 3 had he not been murdered.  That dude was what you’d get if you created a cyborg safety. Big. Fast. Physical. And immaculate receiver level ball skills...  I still love the other 3, especially the Colonel, but Taylor was on another level.  A combination of all 3.
    • This is a big compliment for KM.    
    • No, if he wants to go be a gm somewhere who are we to hold him back from that.
