    He's their "best" skill player and that's only based on public perception. The guy averages a shade over 3.5 yards per carry, has a habit of getting injured, has so-so speed and doesn't hit the hole as hard as you would want a power running back to. He has a knack for scoring touchdowns but if you run him outside of the red zone, he is a dime-a-dozen running back who will likely have a short lifespan given his style.

    For the immediate future, I don't think it helps, but when you're the Browns and you are looking at the bigger picture, trading Richardson is not a big deal. It's the difference between 2 wins and 5. That could be the difference between getting your franchise quarterback or getting someone who is just good enough to keep you at 5-6 wins again. After watching Richardson run the ball for 18 games, I wasn't too enamored with him. A change of system in Indy could and should help him, but he just isn't as good as people are making him out to be. As far as offensive players who are better - Joe Thomas, Alex Mack and I could even argue that Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron are more promising long term offensive threats than Trent Richardson.

    Pretty much it's a great big 'fuck you' to Mike Holmgren.

    I like the move. It's ballsy. Richardson showed flashes but he was looking a bit more like Beanie Wells than Adrian Peterson.

    Of course I have both Richardson AND Bradshaw on one of my fantasy teams.

    A well deserved "fuck you" to Holmgren for drafting Brandon Weeden in the first round.

    Also, I agree he looked more like Beanie Wells and Peterson. Remember William Green? As a Browns fan, I do. That's who he reminds me of.

    He'll be lucky to be a late first rounder. 4th or 5th qb taken next year. (if he leaves A&M that is)

    Well Indy's first round pick, according to my calculations, should be in the last dozen or so.

    So there you go.

    Which is where they'll take an OT. Cleveland's first rounder should be in the top 5, and they'll take one of the guys from Louisville or Oregon or something.

    Dime a dozen? My god you are delusional. Watch what this kid does on a decent team with a good quarterback to keep the defense honest.

    some things never change with the Browns...

    “Yeah, I found out on the radio,” Richardson said during an interview with 19 Action News in Cleveland. “Actually, one of my friends called me. He was like, ‘You got traded?’ I was like, ‘Man, shut up talking to me. Get off my phone.’ I turned on the radio, and all of a sudden I heard, ‘Cleveland Browns running back has been traded to the Colts.’ It just hit me in my face like I can’t believe … I didn’t see it coming. I had good relations with everybody. I guess it’s the best for the Browns. At the end of the day, it’s the best move for both of us, I guess. I want to be a Brown. I didn’t see it coming, but at the same time, I’m a Colt now, so I got to move on get ready for Sunday’s game.”

    ...Colts got a hell of a deal, we all know the Browns will screw up that 1st rnd pick as well

    Have you even watched him play since college? I highly fucking doubt a single one of you watches the Browns as religiously as I do. The guy has been mediocre. He gets gassed quickly, has injury problems, hardly moves a pile, doesn't break away with his speed. He's good inside the red zone and very sub-par in between both 20's.

    Some fans act like defenses stacked eight in the box against Weeden, which they didn't. Weeden's lone weapon is his arm. Don't believe me? Look at how many yards he threw for last season. Defenses were forced to keep seven in the box instead of eight because of it. Teams generally dared Weeden to beat them with the short game and left plenty of opportunities for Richardson to run rampant, which he rarely did. Sure, he generally sucks, but keeping the defense honest is exactly what he did with his arm. Also, Cleveland has two starting offensive lineman with pro bowls under their belt. How many do the Colts have?

    I'm sure Richardson will be productive, maybe even more so with the Colts. But you're overvaluing him.

    It looked a lot easier before the season actually started and my expectations were a little higher. I still think we can win 10 or 11 games. I'm going to the game this weekend in SF. Hope I don't die.

    When you have Luck, anything is possible. He is going to find that Richardson is a great receiver out of the backfield. I actually like him in that role more than a typical RB.
