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

Recommended Posts

Overrated movie

That was an Oscar winning movie, and we'll see if this is an Oscar winning trade. This is the wildest trade since his dad pulled the John Elway coup

All went before the 8th pick.  You think we'll play bad enough to get the 8th pick?

 

Ninja edit - meant 10th.

Will the Colts or the Browns go down with the ship with this trade ? Maybe it will work for both teams like the Bailey- Portis trade.

Wasn't really that "unimpressive" considering he had broken ribs while playing for a team with no passing game . You watch the Browns a whole lot last year ? Huh... surprising that you would be that interested in them. 

 

Here's a quiz for you and other nay sayers..

 

In my rookie year I ran for 697 yards on 187 carries with 2 TD's. Had 30 receptions for 343 yards and 3 TD's . Second year 120 for 488 and 10 receptions for 139 yards.

 

Who am I ?

 

 

 

Gosh ... nobody wanted got play ?  It was OJ Simpson

Hah yeah there are a few funny posts over there...like this one "So what happens when he runs for 1800 yards this year for the colts and we take a flyer on the 18th pick of next years draft hoping he pans out? Any 35yo QBs coming out of college next year?"

Wasn't Zombo a character in the Munsters TV series ? Only a Browns fan would be called Zombo !

Sadly that's not even close to being accurate.

He had broken ribs and a hamstring problem this preseason. Not a good sign for a runningback especially one that is supposed to be a power back. Speaking of being a powerback he had a really low yards after contact last year. Sad to say the cleveland browns completely hustled us in this trade. He wasn't successful behind Clevelands which is significantly better than our line. Speaking of our line we just lost a 1st round pick we could have used to upgrade it. Seems Mr. Irsay already forgot his rant about how we need to protect Andrew. runningbacks are a dime a dozen and we just wasted a first round pick on one. Not to mention this only gives them more motivation to run the ball and force the run taking the ball out of Luck's hands which has been a problem.

 

 

I think when teams gang up on the run , RB's have a harder time breaking tackles as there are usually more than one defender hitting them. Weedon and Cleveland had a miserable time throwing the ball last year. Also I thought the broken ribs were last year and not this year. In any event you get Richardson and give up "you'll never know." So unless Richardson breaks out . it will be really hard to evaluate. I like it but I can understand why some have reservations.

Unless he learns to play offensive line who cares. Bradshaw is one of the best blocking backs in the league already.

Oh lol im sorry to step on your toes,I guess NFL network will be knocking your door down any minute they could deffinately use your talent :thmup:

Denver won that trade by a wide margin

I'm saying even if we kept our first round pick our biggest need would be offensive guard. But there are no guards projected in first round of the 2014 draft right now. And we have a potential star at running back now.

Browns forum having a meltdown (as I would be as well) *mod edit*

What meltdown? Some people seem furious that they are so obviously giving up on this season. Many of them are pleased with it. Mixed reaction just like here.

 

Sadly I didn't see any that seemed to be mourning the loss of what he's given them on the field - just the "value" lost based on his having been a high draft pick.

Yeah cause you have to be an expert to see how porous our line is. Especially when the owner just called them out on twitter again.

Biggest thing to me is value. Just not worth a 1st round pick. We can get by with Bradshaw and whoever else. We have so many other needs to address. Personally think we would benefit more from drafting a rushbacker or o-line in the first then take a De'anthony Thomas or Lache seastrunk in the 2nd next year.

I'm torn by this move.  On the one hand we're getting insane value giving up a pick most likely in the teens for last year's #3 and making the Browns eat his entire signing bonus.  That part is a slam dunk win.  On the other hand RBs are a dime a dozen and I hate giving up a #1 pick for any running back (AP doesn't count since there's no way that dude is human).  Hope he can stay healthy.

I know. The father pulled off the worst trade in Colts history but at least he got an ESPN special made about that blundering trade.

The browns must not believe in Richardson and that worries me. With weeden out now they are all but guarenteed a top 5 pick and there is a good potential crop of QB's this year. Thire new QB could have T-rich, one of the better o-lines, Jordan Cameron, Josh gordon and a really solid defense. I just don't understand it.

I'll be honest with you guys , I would take Bernard Pierce , a third round pick of the Ravens, over Trent Richardson. However, that doesn't mean it's a bad deal for the Colts. He was a #3 1st round pick, but injuries and a 3.6 yards per carry would bring him into a mid-range first round pick , or a high second for him currently in a trade. The Colts have a need , and the Browns want to rebuild . Had I been the Browns and I had heard Irsay previously tweeting that he was going to trade for a running back, I would have squeezed Irsay for an additional third round pick. But then again, that is why they are the Browns.

    • For some reason some people can't tell the difference between a bad QB or an above average QB. JB isn't bad or below average, he is average at worse, but his stats and the teams record at 3-2 prove he is above average no matter how anyone wants to slice it. You do not win with a bad or below average QB, plain and simple. No team in the history of football has won with a bad or below average QB. That is common sense. The way some people post and nitpick JB's play, you would think we were 0-5 and he leads the league in INT's. It is utterly ridiculous the flack JB gets from some. Just my 2 FAT CENTS.
    • Well last week my dfs sucked, but neither kamara nor cook did much.   Coleman is getting the red zone carries though, but they are both worth a dfs. What's your other options?
    • Somehow you managed to completely avoid answering the question and as usual just went off on a tangent to change subject.    Again a completely unfair misrepresentation. There’s been of context and nuance by a lot of posters.    This is why people get frustrated with your posting style. 
    • People don’t realize it’s not what you say it’s how you say it. That’s what I mean. Believe it or not I don’t mind people talking about how he needs to improve or what he is doing wrong. I think it all just needs to be put in more context. There are a lot of factors that goes into the lack of passing yards. It’s not all JB. Is some of it. Yes. But there are lots reasons. There is no doubt the passing yards needs to improve. That goes on the entire offense. Not just JB. He needs to improve and so do the young recievers. Ebron needs to catch balls. There is no one reason with the lack of pass yards.
    • I don’t think drops this year has played a huge difference. The only game where it might of made a difference was the raiders game.  Which was kind of sad because winning a game without TY would of been really impressive for him.
