It does make one wonder, how did he "get past" so many scouts, through the combine and all the hype to turn out to have the non success he`s endured? Is he just awful? It reminds me of all the Rocky movies where Mick see`s the talent but Rock just keeps loafing around and wont focus. But Trent never heard the bell or had Adrian whisper "win"..lol is that a good analogy or what!?!?

From what I have seen the mods keep the Trent business on a short leash and I don't recall seeing anyone posting their mock draft in a random thread.

If there is a specific subject you want to discuss then you should start a thread, that's how it works on forums.

I don't really care for mock drafts myself, but others enjoy them so I just leaf through those threads.

On my own forum I don't read over half of what the members post, mods patrol their areas and handle those threads.

If you aren't opening the threads that offend you, which obviously you are because you posted in this one, but if you weren't and just the thread title was making you angry, then I suggest chanting Serenity Now like on Seinfeld.

:lol: ....Chanting?

 

Considering your own zealous pursuit (how many posts?) in the endless and repetitive harsh critique of Trent Richardson, that is a comically ironic statement.

 

I'm happy to admit....in all serenity, of course....that the Richardson trade hasn't worked out and that Ryan Grigson made a mistake.

 

Beyond that its a closed issue.

I have typed and "erased" 1/2 dozen responses already :sigh:

It sounds like most of you aren't really bothered by the fact that he didn't make it, you just want him off the team anyway.

If his "personal" reason is anything other than a death in the family, then you may get your wishes. :dunno:

Him playing arguably hurts the team. That's why most of us aren't bothered. He's just horrible and the coaches finally figured it out.

i think any coach that chooses to play someone who they know is incompetent should be fired personally, but hey continue to support someone that has lucks arm saving his job and making up for the team being unprepared to play a good 1/4 of the season

I think anyone who continues to troll mindlessly should be called out on it, so go ahead.

Did that tweet Irsay put out,  something like "won`t be fooled again" coincide with Richardson`s diminished role? Anyone remember that? 

 

I typically try to avoid Jim Irsay tweets on average, but if Jim has finally seen "the light" better late than never. I could see Jim accompanying that tweet with a link to that Who song though. Jim's clever that way.

Was that in I or II because I only really liked Rocky III & IV with Apollo Creed vs Mick in them as Balboa's trainer? But, I digress. IMO concentration was not Trent's problem productivity was. He tried. He just wasn't good enough & he had plenty of time to prove himself.

So much for that waste of a 1st round pick. Hope Blount who was on waivers and we did not get, does not steamroll our D. Guess Trent will be on waivers.

Geez, it's not the end of the world. There are first rounds bust just about every year of the draft. That is why it is said a draft really cant be graded till year 2 or 3 after the draft. Grigson took a gamble, it didn't work out. So what? Move on and be glad the larger part of the players drafted did work out. Crying over spilled milk does no one any good.

If we're stuck with his salary (no team willing to trade), then I'm fine with keeping him around next season -- at least through camp.  He wasn't good by any stretch of the imagination but he had a few decent/good games and wasn't terrible like last year.

 

He still has some utility in pass protection and when getting the ball in space.  He'll be in a contract year next season.  If that doesn't motivate him to lose significant weight and work hard in the off season then he's probably done.  I'd be curious to see if he can show anything in camp if he's able to lose ~20 pounds and in a contract year.  However, I don't think there's any chance of him being with the Colts after next year.

    • Last one was the 31st.   So yep. Everyone other week.
    • I disagree and think Cosmi could still play Guard if LT did not work. With his athleticism and footwork plus a year or two in the NFL strength program he could honestly be a better guard than tackle IMO. I like him as a LT though. 
    • Its hard to forecast how either will do.... my crystal ball broke when my wife threw it at me.......    EVERY one of the OTs that we might draft at 21 have some holes........   I do think that Jenkins could play RT, LG, RG with ease, at a pro bowl level, .....day one   I truly dont know about LT, but I think Jenkins MIGHT be a pro bowl player there as well.       I dont think Cosmi could play anything but LT    If you draft Cosmi, and he doesnt work out at LT, (A REAL possibility, just like anyone at 21) he becomes a backup   If you draft Jenkins, if he doesnt work out at LT, he will be a high level starter at another spot on the Colts line       If you look at the LT spot on run downs, Jenkins would be a clear edge over Cosmi.......   Cosmi seems to have better feet than Jenkins, but Jenkins kept up with some very fast, DEs that will be drafted from the right side.   His feet were good enough for these speed rushers. His biggest strength is getting his hands on the DE and shutting it down.   For example,    Ossai from Texas is a very good DE day 2 prospect......    Jenkins drove Ossai from the LOS to the bench.... not just sideline.... but to the bench   He also "rag dolled" the guy on a few plays   The strength in Jenkins hands and his ability to hand fight, mitigates some of the speed rushers ability. to get past him. He mirrors them, then locks them down with the legalized holding in the NFL   Lastly...... the attitude that Jenkins brings to line matches and helps drive the others     So...... I like both prospects, and would be happy with either, but I'm shifting to wanting Jenkins over Cosmi at 21    If Darrisaw slid to us (I doubt it) I would have a tough decision
