I know, right? Richarson averages more then half a yard more per carry. Not fair to Mccoy at all.

He averages more than a half yard more per carry, that's isn't something to be proud of, McCoy is terrible right now, which means Richardson is also terrible.

Jim Brown played for the Browns, Trent played for the Browns, so by saying Trent sucks you are saying Jim Brown sucks.

Trent has braids, Lynch has braids, by saying Trent sucks you are saying Lynch sucks.

These are all valid arguments according to some people.

If Trent has an average game, which is a great game for Trent, then he is on his way to being a world beater. If he plays like crap, normal game for Trent, the. Its not even slightly his fault or random comparisons are made to make it seem like this bad game was a rarity.

Let's say we picked Trent up as an undrafted free agent instead of him being part of Grigsons foolish trade, would he be starting ? Would he be given all the opportunity that he has been given ? I don't think so. I also don't think everyone would be so quick to make excuses for him.

The Browns seen what he could deliver, there was no way they could build a team around him like everyone was saying they would do. Imagine a team built around Trent .....

The guy has a few average games, low end average, fumbles twice in his best showing so far, scores a 1 yard touchdown while never coming near average yards, and he's good ?

He is a third string player being forced into a starting position because of a bad trade. He can not be a featured back, he can barely be average when he splits carries.

To say " well Bradshaw didn't do much better" doesn't excuse anything. Bradshaw is a 7th round pick coming off major surgery in the later years of his career. Trent is a first round pick coming into his 3rd year who has played like garbage his first 2 seasons.

Who should more be expected from ?

He can sometimes catch and run ... We have receivers and tight ends who can handle that, what we need is someone who can run the ball consistently.

You guys crack me up, fighting tooth and nail to try and prove Trent is good when in reality if he was in any other uniform come Sunday you would call him a bust and be thrilled to be facing him.

blah blah blah same ol' rant as the last 100 I've posted

Trent is looking a lot better then last year and will improve as the season goes on, if he stays injury free. "Beast" as you keep referring him as, no not yet......highly productive member of the offense? Definitely! And I'm not hung up on the whole draft pick thing like a lot of people are, it's done, move on, get over it for gods sake!

It's been a big week for Browns fans. The bye week represents their historical lowest loss %. It's between that and the offseason.

I'll admit, he's been valuable as Andrew Luck's safety value in the receiving game. But, aside from the occasional good run, he's been very 'Richardsonian' at a meager 3.3 yards-per-carry, and THAT my friends is not why we traded a #1 pick to get him.

McCoy is averaging 2.7 with a few less yards. A lot of people were high on that guy coming into the season after leading the league last year. You wouldn't complain if they gave up a pick for him would you?

    • Looks like the Colts will get 2-3 starters from the 2019 class. Willis has been the best pick so far but Oke hasn’t been terrible.  He needs to keep working on his game to improve on his deficiencies and he will be alright.  The wildcards are Rock and Campbell. One of them will come thru and be a contributing starter. If both work out this is one heck of a draft class. 
    • Yes, I'm willing to give it another year to really judge this class.   I think RYS and Oke can be solid starters for several years to come on this team.  The covid offseason didn't help them at all.     We got good value from Willis later in the draft.  I think we've seen him pretty much hit his ceiling, but he's a solid player and think he can remain solid for a while.   Campbell is a stud athlete and has just gotten downright unlucky with injuries.  He's a high character guy and a solid worker.  If he comes back and can stay healthy, I expect him to be a big contributor to the O.     Speed was very solid on STs last year and I expect him to get LB snaps this coming season, especially if Walker leaves in FA which I think is pretty much inevitable at this point.     I know there were some rumors last year that Banogu wasn't performing well in practice (well 'Flus said this to the media).  I am not ready to give up on him yet, but I don't think he's going to pan out to what Ballard had in mind.     Tell looked very promising as a rookie.  Hopefully when he comes back from opt-out he'll be on the right trajectory and can contribute again.   Green, Barton and Patterson are all still in the league and frankly as 6th and 7th round players, it isn't like we were expecting much from them.     Then, let's not forget we got Ashton Dulin as an UDFA that year.  He's been very solid on STs and though not given much opportunity at WR, he's shown speed and ability to extend the field.  I won't be shocked to see him make the 2021 roster and continue to excel on STs while seeing a bit of an increased role as a WR.
    • There's no doubt that 2020 wasn't the best for the 2019 class. Rock, Banogu and Okereke either stagnated or regressed in their development. They've all got big 2021 seasons ahead. Bobby in particular I'd like to see emerge as a quality starting MLB in this league, he has the ability, but his play was mediocre last year.    I think with Banogu, Ballard just blundered here with this pick. I think he'd admit that, we saw in the 2020 draft him going for experienced established collegiate stars in Pittman and Taylor.  He had the idea of playing Banogu as a hybrid SAM but that never came to fruition, probably because they didn't exactly have a plan or a defined role for him. Now were just have two 3rd down speed rushers (Turay) vying for the same limited number of snaps. So even if Banogu starts improving, he might still have trouble seeing the field. I think if he had any sort of trade value, Ballard would just trade him, or he will just drop him out of the 53, and let someone take him off the roster like what happened with Basham. But hopefully we see something from him this year.   Willis as pretty good this year. He is seems like a hard worker and is improving each season. I like him as the starting SS.   I was really disappointed for Parris Campbell. In the Jags and opening few snaps of the Vikings games, he looked really good and a big part of the offense. The thing about Campbell is that its not because he is injury prone. All his injuries have been in different areas of the body in different circumstances. Knee, hand foot, hernia,.. just downright rotten luck. Hopefully we get him back and playing at a high level.
    • Ok that's a good point man. I'm curious about your opinion on this one. What if you had a guy like Okereke doing James Farrior like things? You've got a good FS. I see both sides of this argument. It's an interesting conundrum. Solid push every single down with a little trickery. Also if you have a solid running game it makes play calling so much easier and whoever you put in there is going to have an easier job. Just theorizing man.
    • 12 sacks and avg vs the pass? Yeah hed be a tweener with us from what i saw he plays inside and outside.
