Trent Richardson rushed for 37 yards on 14 carries Sunday night. He also had one fumble. The Colts were stupid enough to trade away a first round draft pick to Cleveland for Richardson.
The fans in Indianapolis are starting to see, the team made a mistake trading a first round pick for Richardson even if that pick was the last pick in the first round.
In the 5 games Richardson has played as a Colt, he has only rushed for 228 yards on 75 carries, he has a 3.04 yards per carry average with the Colts and that isn’t very good for a guy who was the 3rd overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.
The Colts were taken advantage of by Cleveland. How the Colts gave up a first round pick that plays like Richardson will be the joke of the NFL for years to come.
Richardson isn’t going to be the answer Irsay and the Colts were looking for to help finish constructing the so-called dynasty. When the home town fans start booing a guy they thought was going to be a star player, things only deteriorate further.
Richardson is a NFL bust. He doesn’t have what it takes to become a top running back in the NFL. He can’t hit the holes fast enough and he doesn’t have the common sense to hit those holes fast enough.
