You guys are way off on the "Stacked box" misconceptions. Richardson did not face that many "stacked" boxes. In fact he was well below the league average in that respect. In fact your own Donald Brown and Ballard faced more men in the box.

Here's the proof.

Thank you. Now people can shut up about the whole "stacked box" theory that's rampant around here

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.

That's from two games this season with the Browns without Josh Gordon. The link I posted was from an entire years worth of carries with The Browns. Who's link carries more weight? 

 

Did you really just link a fantasy football article?

Do you waver back and forth like your hero Pete Prisco ? Here's something I found from last year.

 

"Last Sunday against San DiegoBrowns running back Trent Richardson looked like the guy the Browns expected when they drafted him third overall in the 2012 draft. He ran over and around tacklers."

"His 26-yard touchdown run was an impressive display of making tacklers miss, and turning what should have been a short gain into a touchdown run."

Don't take this as an insult dw49, I always like your posts and usually agree with a large percentage of them but I fail to understand how that is wavering.  He watched a game and gave his assessment of TRich's performance in that game.  Then he watched another game and gave his assessment of TRich's performance in that game (or group of games).

 

That's not wavering, IMO, that is not letting preconceived ideas get in the way of his assessment.  And how anyone can say Richardson has been anything other than ordinary in his time with the Colts is beyond me.  Yes there are reasons for it, and yes there are some things about his game that are positive but overall his performance has been average.  Ofcourse, unlike some, I am not going to decide if the trade was good or bad until next year.

Point taken. I thought about that post a while after I wrote and realized it wasn't too good.

TRich just needs better coaching at the NFL level. People never put enough emphasis on the importance of positional coaching at the NFL level. It is my belief that he'll get the right attention and coaching here in Indy. 

 

Cleveland's utter failure over such a long period of time says much about their coaching. It's no surprise when great talents get nowhere in under Cleveland's tutelage.

Source? I believe you're incorrect, because the article mentions that TRich had 42 carries 11 personnel and at the time of this article he had only 31 carries overall.

I fail to see how this is relevant.

    • The question might be better framed around "confidence".   If I had to rank my 2022 confidence from lowest to....   1. MIKE - performed mediocre in 2020, will be taking a bigger role in 2021 2. LT - nobody under contract in 22, coming back from injury, 30 years old 3. CB1 - nobody under contract in 22, 31 years old, CB2 struggled in 2020 so him taking over CB1 is questionable.  4. WR1 - aged and has history of health issues. Heir apparent candidates are rook X (Xs are not frequently WR1s), and the primary candidate for replacement has been injured every year. 5. FS - rook that struggled mightily in coverage after teams got film 6. DE - Turay is an injury vs flash guy at this point, Dayo is a injured rook projection, and Lewis is stepping into a starting role as a tweener. 7. QB - we're pretty much committed for 2 years, so probably doesn't matter for 22   This all assumes we re-sign WILL, RT, and LG to extensions. LG already has 5th year exercised.   
    • lol. you said it was your last post... feel free to post again and I will not reply, so you can "win". I was only hoping you'd address the question/point that you're still avoiding.   Point is, you have not addressed the question specifically about the last 5 years. I guess the Bengals have bucked their history lol. It's not a theory, it's just data. Like I said, I like Irsay, but we simply haven't spent the last 5 years. And like I previously said, GMs don't complain about their budgets publicly. And there's just not a great way to explain 2 straight years of not spending 40+M. You don't have to spend it all, you don't have to sign long term deals.... But that's a lot of money to not spend.
    • No I am not I am looking at a history of a guy who has owned this team for a longer period of four or five years you only want to look at because it supports yours theory but even then it only works if you ignore what the GM has said about not spending money and that he’s about to spend very big money to do what he said he was going to do all along.  Again if you think Jim Irsay is a cheap owner you don’t know what a cheap owner is but think what you want.     any I am sure you will want the last word as you always do have a nice night.
    • And that's fine. We can revisit this at the end of the year. All I'm doing is giving my thoughts on the matter before it becomes evident.
