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

Recommended Posts

Just a thought. If Washington loses Sunday and RG3PO gets benched maybe we should offer up a pick and go for a clean sweep of the top 3 from 2012. He'd make a great clipboard holder I'm sure :P

I take it this is from the same site that then quoted a 52.6% of carries on 8 or more in the box on his carries... To repeat the link already posted:

Some subjective stats being thrown around about this trade in a number of articles.

One of Richardson’s biggest problems has been facing eight defensive players in the box too often. By defining players in the box as all defensive linemen, linebackers and safeties within eight yards of the line of scrimmage, Richardson faced eight or more men on the box on 52.6 percent of his carries. On those carries, he averaged just 3.2 yards per carry. When it was seven or fewer in the box, that was up to 3.9 yards per carry. With Andrew Luck at quarterback, teams can’t put eight in the box to stop Richardson as often as they used to.

In fact if Richardson was only facing a stacked box on less than 1in 5 of his carries I'd seriously question the sanity of some NFL defensive coordinators for fearing the arm of Weedon over their ground game. It makes no sense not to take away their best player on O.

That's the problem with facts now a days there are so many of them that they often contradict each other...

Agreed

People use which ever "facts" support their views.

Stacked boxes vs Miami (8 or more beteen the Tackles)

run 1-yes
run 2-no
run 3-no
run 4-no
run 5-no
run 6-no
run 7-no
run 8-no
run 9-no (holding penalty cleveland....no play)
run 10-no
run 11-yes
run 12-no
run 13-yes
run 14-no

 

Stacked boxes vs Ravens (8 or more between th Tackes)

Run 1-yes
Run 2-yes
Run 3-no
Run 4-no
Run 5-no
run 6-no
run 7-no
run 8-no
run 9-no
run 10-no
run 11-no
run 12-no
run 13-yes
run 14-yes
run 15-no
run 16-yes
run 17-no
run 18-yes

 

 

Thats what I came out with from Game Rewind. The yes's are stacked boxes whie the no's re not stacked......There was several instances of Corners having their eyes focused on the backfield to clary not respecting the pass

 

9 out of 31 runs there was 8 or more in the box for 29%, I will say Richardson does dance himself out of holes that have opened up his fair share times, He did not follow his blockers on a few plays  and cut back inside when he should have stayed outside, No denying he has power however but has to continue to improve his decision making

    • Good....   They have no one to blame but themselves.... because Antonio Brown is a head case the likes of which we haven’t seen since Terrell Owens.... and they knew it.   Talk about high maintenance? He makes the space shuttle look like a paper airplane.
    • If we keep 6, and a 3rd X, he might be a bit better WR than Pascal, but the overall net/net would be negligible.   Inman would not be #3 this year. He might be the 3rd X if we kept 3 Xs, but at best he'd be 5th or 6th. Inman was #2 or #3 last year because we had a cluster at X. The Pats don't even have high quality depth, and Inman struggled there. Don't get me wrong, I love Inman for his contribution last year, but he's not a true #2 or #3.    At the beginning of the year, I'd bet you're likely going to see  1. TY 2. Funch 3. Rogers 4. Cain 5. Campbell   By the end of the year, I'd bet you're likely going to see 1. TY 2. Cain 3a. Campbell 3b. Funch 5. Rogers   Funch will start out as primary X, but you're going to see Funch play more and more slot as the year goes along. We're likely going to see Cain and Funch on the field at the same time. Roger's snaps will decrease as Funch slides to slot more often and as Campbell matures.   I wouldn't mind Inman over Pascal at #6 (if we keep 6), but overall you're only getting a little bit better/mature 3rd X, and you'd be cutting your experienced KR.   I don't expect Rogers to be here next year, but he's a lock IMO at this point. He's the only experienced slot in our system, and with Campbell missing so much, it's getting more and more unrealistic to think he won't be here to start as slot. He's also the only guy that has experience at Z (now that Fountain is gone) and has backed up TY. Ideally you also want you're 4th-6th WR to be the one taking PRs.   I hope they keep in contact with Inman, and even bring him to camp in case we need help this year due to injuries. It's pretty unlikely he makes the 53 though.
    • Mark Davis wont fire Jon Gruden anytime within the next few years after giving him a 10 year, $100 million contract. (Yes, coaches contracts are almost always fully guaranteed).
    • Walker was signed in 2017 as a UDFA. The Colts can have up to 4 players with 2 years experience on the PS. The remaining 6 can only have one or less years of experience IIRC.
    • If he can lay off all banned substances... who knows, maybe not too far out there.   He will be tested a boatload though.
