You don’t see Jim Irsay sending out any tweets telling everyone who will listen how he took advantage of the Cleveland Browns with the Trent Richardson trade. The more Irsay sees Richardson the more he has to realize he got screwed by Joe Banner and the Cleveland Browns.

Lets look at Richardson’s first half numbers against the Seattle Seahawks today.  He carried the ball only 6 times and had 2 yards rushing. He had a 0.3 yards per carry average.  The Colts got screwed alright, they gave up a first round pick for a guy who performs like a guy that shouldn’t have  ever been included in an NFL draft in the first place.

Trent Richardson is a bust. He is another in a long line of Bama running backs that were so used up in College. they couldn’t perform in the NFL. He is making the Colts look like idiots for giving up a first round pick and that too is something Irsay needs no help with.

To make a comparison of the Colts running backs in the first half of the game, you can clearly see that Richardson is not good. Donald Brown had two touches and rushed for 20 yards. Irsay has to be blind not to see he was taken for a ride by the Browns.

Trent Richardson is a bust and he probably won’t last 4 years in the NFL.

      Holmgren’s ability to misjudge talent is well known. This Colt fan will wait awhile longer to judge this trade, but right now doesn’t look good for the Colts. I will say Brown never has pass protected very well, while Richardson does seem to understand that part of the job

    I’m so sick of this guy talking trash on Trent. Listen you worthless pile of trash, I’m tired of seeing your one sided commentary based on three games into the season with TR. Until the Colts get a full season with him, you sir are nothing but a TURD.

      Don’t understand what you don’t understand. Not talking trash just pointing out the obvious. Trent isn’t worth and first round pick and his stats speak volumes to that point.

        1. O-Line didn’t do it right in 1st half of Hawks game. 2. Brown usually runs under more spread offense, look at the holes he is running through. 3. Bradshaw questionable, anybody as good available? No. 4. Trent can make a difference if a hole is there, look at second half. 5. Effective running isn’t always statistically sound. We ran enough to make it work 4-1.

    Did you watch the game? If so, you would have notice the total lack of blocking up front. You try running through a wall!

      Are you kidding me? Why is Brown able to be so successful? Look at his yard per carry average. You think the O-line only works for him?

    Who wrote this trash?? You cannot compare stats between Cleveland and Indy. Apples and oranges. Cleveland has no offensive system to speak of and he jumped into a highly sophisticated offense in Indy that heavily relies on a passing game. You are grasping for things to write about.

      They also had no quality Rb in Cleveland after wasting the 3rd over all pick on Richardson and they were able to pull one over on Indy.Because of Irsay being an idiot taking T-Rich the Browns now got back a first round pick…..Whose laughing now?

        You did see that the Colts won yesterday and are 4-1 with 2 injured running backs, right? So whatever they are doing is sure working!

    On a critical third down and four in the fourth quarter, Trent was hit at the line of scrimmage and got the first down. He is a power back will eventually figure the blocking schemes and if he remains healthy wlll be exactly what the Colts need late in the game. Great win Colts.

    TRich ran for 4.5 yards per carry in the second half when they really needed his production – yes production. I guess we’ll know if he was worth a 1st round come December

      yea he is a beast ended his day with 18 carries for 56 yards and a 3.0 yard per carry average. Nice to see the colts were trying to pad his numbers in the second half…..You got to be kidding me 56 yards rushing in 3 games he hasn’t went over 150 yards has he?
