Trent Richardson had a terrible day working out of the Cleveland Browns backfield against the Buffalo Bills today. Richardson only rushed for 27 yards on 12 carries for a 2.3 yard per carry average. For Trent Richardson and Browns fans, this performance couldn’t have come at a worse time. Not only did the Browns need a productive day to help with their less than productive offense, Jim Brown was on the sidelines. This was the Alumni weekend for the Browns, yes there were guys present that actually know what it is like to win a football game while wearing a Browns uniform. Something Richardson and his fellow Rookie starting quarterback, Brandon Weeden, know nothing about in the NFL.
The Cleveland Browns used their first pick in the 2012 NFL draft to take Richardson, last week Browns fans got a glimpse of what Trent Richardson could do in the NFL. The fans had their hopes lifted thinking they got a running-back who is a beast. The beast didn’t show up today as the Browns running game was shut down by the Bills front four. The Cleveland fans as well as Jim Brown felt the pain of watching T-Rich produce very little in the game.
To put things into perspective, C.J. Spiller only carried the ball 4 times, before going down to injury and had a 4 yard per carry average, that is 1.7 yards per carry better than Trent Richardson. The Browns would see Spiller’s backup Tashard Choice come into the game and rush for 91 yards on 20 carries, that is a 4.6 yard average. Choice’s average is double that of Trent Richardson’s. Jim Brown was right, Trent Richardson is just ordinary, ,today he was a little less than ordinary. The Bills defense had no problem stopping the man who was surprised that one guy in the NFL could tackle him Trent Richardson.
Yes Trent, this is the NFL, these guys get paid large sums of money to stop you from running all over them. If you could do one thing in the next three days MR. Richardson, find a way to become better than less than ordinary before the Ravens game Thursday night. The Cleveland Browns are going to need your talents for far more than just exposing how bad the Cincinnati Bengals defense really is, they are going to need you to help the Browns find a way to win…..
