What did the Browns former number one pick Trent (give me the ball coach) Richardson show us today? He showed us, the Cleveland Browns once again used a number one pick on a guy that is a hug disappointment to all Browns fans.
All week since the Browns lost to the Miami Dolphins all we heard in the Cleveland area was how many carries Richardson had. Today in Baltimore the Browns gave him more carries and we now know why he hasn’t had more carries in the past.
Richardson rushed for 58 yards on 18 carries for a 3.2 yard per carry average. At this rate the Browns would have to give him 31.25 carries just to get to the 100 yard mark. Richardson hasn’t shown he is a premier NFL running back.
He isn’t making that big of a difference in the Browns offense this season and now that the Browns have played 2 games he now has 105 yards rushing for a 52-1/2 yards per game average. That stinks, that is totally unacceptable for a number one draft pick, 3rd over all in the 2012 draft.
The biggest problem Richardson has is all the dancing he does. He doesn’t understand this is the NFL, in the time you waste dancing around, you just allowed the defense to close in on you.
We should have known we were in trouble last season when Richardson made the statement about how surprised he was that one guy could tackle him in the NFL.
Hey Richardson, welcome to the big leagues. This isn’t Alabama and the guys who can tackle you by themselves are the best of the best. Get used to it and learn how to grab that football and run.
The quicker you realize that you can’t stand there and do your little dances the better off you and your team are going to be.
You are not the back we thought you were going to be and you do very little to help your team win football games. Get over yourself, get your head out of the clouds and learn how to play NFL football. Otherwise your time with the Cleveland Browns could be very limited.
