@NateUlrichABJ: #Colts RB Trent Richardson: A lot of people are saying I'm a mistake. What I'm telling folks now is watch the next four weeks.

Still rooting for the guy, but I just don't see it man

I hope he turns on beast mode but I'm loosing faith in him I keep trying to believe he'll turn into that prospect he was coming out of college just not sure it will ever happen anymore .

Ill be a trich fan til hes retired or no longer in the league but he has no room to even be talking about doing good over the next four weeks based on what hes done the past couple weeks.. i guess the only thing we can take from this is, that he still has a little confidence left.

I don't think TRich will ever be an elite back but I think he is better than a lot of people on this forum think.  And I find it funny that, before he injured his hamstring, he was really starting to play well.  Since his hammy injury he has struggled.  People (not always the same people but at times they are)make excuses when Luck struggles, they blame injuries on GC's struggles, on Toler's struggles (last year), on Freeman's struggles, on Wayne's struggles but no one takes into account the injury for TRich's struggles.

 

I don't mind pointing out the flaws I see in players but some of the comments on this board regarding TRich are just stupid.

With the personnel the Browns have on defense, I think they are likely to come with a similar approach to New England as to how to stop our offense. I'm sure they will have Joe Haden on Reggie, and double teams on T.Y. Hopefully we'll be smart and Feed Moncrief, Feed Coby, Feed Allen! 

 

Then when the strategy changes we will come back and Feed Hilton, Feed Wayne.  I'm also interested to see what Boom Herron does in this game.  This is also some what of a home coming for him since he played at Ohio State.  Can't wait until Sunday!  It's going to be very loud and hostile up there, hopefully we don't lay a road egg like we've done a couple times this year.  We need to beat these dudes soundly in there own house.  That would be a great statement to me!

Very nice.. the trich bashing is exhausted out.. its surely doesnt help his confidence or make he play better.. the boos from the crowd on sunday completely through me of guard.. i thought the colts organization and fans were some of the most classiest and humble fans. But that was completely uncalled for.. i personally dont think any player on a team should be booed by his own fans no matter how bad his performance may be.. We as fans should have trust in our coaching staff to make the right move. Whenever or however long it may take.

Travis Benjamin and Hankins. Pretty good complimentary pieces

I think they will put Haden on Hilton.

I personally feel the booing was well deserved and long overdue (even though I didn't join in at the game). The fan base has a right to voice their displeasure and the coaches/mgmt need to quit being so stubborn. The T Rich experiment has gone on way too long. He simply hasn't earned his touches and that is not how pro football should work.

I would love to see that but he said some of the same stuff at the beginning of the season.  He's been better but not enough to make him even close to being worth a 1st rounder.

Man I hope Vontae plays and Manziel gets put in and throws his way. 

 

 

I also hope we throw to our RB's out of the backfield. 

 

If Manziel gets in the game, it means we're up by enough that Cleveland is deperate.  So I hope you're right.  We'll see more runs from him than passes.

 

I agree about the safety valve pass, it's TRich's best play. 

 

Gordon is a concern, we won't hold him down the entire game.  But we've survived games in the past where WRs set records against us and we still won.

Also, Pep has gotten away from what was successful for Trent: a balanced offense allowing Trent to get carries when the defense doesn't know what the Colts are doing.  Last week he was ruining on obvious downs, that doesn't work with him.  He's also now catching any balls out of the backfield, he's good in space and can beat LBs and run through DBs.

Not all about 40times at the CB spot. Technique, hips, and footwork. Haden is s top level CB. Doubt TY blows by him

 

Haden has been getting worked by some guys this year who are slower than T.Y.  T.Y. is a polished route runner, he's not a rookie anymore.

The only bad thing about the booing was that it didn't happen earlier.

You people will just never stop bashing.. its not helping anything.. if you personally are gettin booed for your work weather it be football or whatever it is you do for a living. Its not gonna help you or your performance in anyway.. i understand that the boos are also toward the coaches.. but you really expect them to give boom all carries?.. its not gonna happen.. theyre not gonna do it due to his fumbling problems. Not at this point in the season where every win counts.

Not booing is not going to help either. He's going to be awful whether he's bood or not.

Not sure how I feel about this game. Tough road game for sure but I have to believe we handle Hoyer and Luck does enough to get us the win.

Going to be an unusual atmosphere at Cleveland..

Will they turn on Hoyer early....?

are the Colts 'the big team coming into town'? With 4 left, every game is crucial but have the Browns pointed to this game because of how well the Colts have been for 3 years?

...Is indy a target?

So was that a great win for the Colts or something different altogether?

I'm still not sure I know it showed how stubborn Pep is from getting away from his game plan . Didn't run bunch plays or anything that is good for a strong man D until the 4th . On a side note Reggie needs to be benched and Whalen brought up until Reggie is healthy .

    • Two of the three involve former COLTS....   1.   Anyone here remember PJ Walker?    The little (sub 6') QB who would show up at camp,  be our 4th string guy,  eventually get cut and go elsewhere...   Canada, or XFL or wherever.       Well...   not only was PJ Walker in the NFL this year (Carolina)  he actually played in four games.    Wait!   There's more!    He actually started one game, and, yes,  he actually won!       Here's PJ's profile page.   You can see as you scroll down.   Good for the kid.   Who doesn't like a feel good story?       https://www.panthers.com/team/players-roster/p-j-walker/logs/   2.   It would appear that the career of AQ Shipley has ended.   The former Colts center, who moved on to the Rams where he started and played well for them for a few years may be over.        Late in the season,  he suffered what sounds like a badly pinched nerve in his neck.   HC Sean McVey made it sound like he was done.   Gotta like a guy who wasn't blessed with much        talent, but made the most out of what talent he had.    Hope he enjoys a long, healthy retirement.       https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/11/25/a-q-shipley-may-have-suffered-career-ending-injury/   3.   Frank Ragnow, the Center for the Detroit Lions is now competing for a title I'm sure he didn't want to prove he's worth.   Toughest Son a Gun in Football.   In Week 14,  Ragnow suffered       a fractured throat!    In more than 50 years of following football, I have never heard of such a thing.   But wait!   It gets better!   Ragnow didn't come out of the game.   He played through it.        The only change was having the guard call the line blocking changes.   Ragnow couldn't speak.    He missed the next two games and didn't talk that entire time, and then played the last              game of the season.    During his time off when he didn't speak,  doctors told him he needed to protect his vocal chords to make sure he could talk for the rest of his life.     The next time            fans begrudge the players,  remember Frank Ragnow.        https://www.nfl.com/news/frank-ragnow-on-throat-injury-time-missed-focus-was-on-preserving-voice-for-the-      
    • Fair point.   No quibble.       
    • I could easily be wrong about this,  but I think you're high on Nelson, Leonard and Smith.    Maybe not by a lot,  but by enough that the Colts will have more money left than you think.   ***I think Q can pick the length of his deal.   I'm guessing he'll have the following options.  4/60 (15) or 5/80 (16) or 6/102. (17) ***I think Leonard is looking at roughly   4/56 (14)  5/75. (15) ***I think Smith is looking at                    4/50 (12.5)  5/65 (13)   The keys to all three deals are....   the signing bonus and the amount guaranteed at signing --- these two are often confused, but they are not the same.     
    • I'm not saying you don't need speed and/or power. I'm just pointing out college players rely on it too often because it works in college, but then find out without technique their not as efficient.
    • OK......      I'm not speaking to Basham at all.    Have seen zero film on him.   I was only trying to say that DL's using speed and/or power in the NFL have worked since the league began.    PLayers who don't with at least one of them typically don't last long in the NFL.    The ones who can win with both have long, successful careers.   More to the point, our whole defense is built on speed.   Especially on the defensive front.   Look at our DE's.   Houston uses both speed and power.    Autry uses both as he plays DE and DT.   Turay is a speed guy.   Banogu is a speed guy.   Lewis, is a bit like Autry in that he plays both DE and DT.    He's trying to use both to win.    We're trying to find DL who win with their first step.  Get even on step 2,  and pass the OL on step 3.       Do the D-Lineman need to develop better hand moves -- absolutely.   100 percent.   That's why Ballard says young DL often need 2-3 years to figure things out.    He just noted Jerry Hughes who didn't blossom until Year 4 with Buffalo.   We gave up on him too soon.    Sorry,  don't mean to belabor the point,  I wanted to read your response before I posted what I needed to say....   Thanks...
