Trent Richardson will be an absolute beast in Indy. I wanted throw up when I heard about this. Just another reason for me to hate Cleveland!

TR will certainly help the Colts this season; I don't think there is any question about that. But whether this is a good deal for them in the long run is open for debate. I personally think that first round pick would have been better spent on something more pressing and more important than a RB, like OL.

So, I'm really not too excited and not too bummed out by this deal as far as the Colts go.

With the short career life of most RB's, I'm thinking the Colts way overpaid for TR. He might be great for a short time but in the long run that 1st round pick could have been spent better else where on someone that would be with the team for alot longer. Also we've proven several times that a good RB can be found later in the draft. JMO, but this trade was a mistake by the Colts.

The AFCS just got a bit tougher. If the Texans are who we hope they are, they'll still take the division.

My thoughts exactly.
I remember seeing this guy at 'Bama, and yea he's really good and represents an upgrade over anybody they have at that position and will make the Colts better in the near term, but over the longer term I'm of the opinion that teams in the NFL should save those first round picks for corners, offensive tackles, and edge
rushers. But Indy will be better over the short run, I'll give them that.

RBs have short careers, because most of them suck. If you find a true franchise back, MJD, Steven Jackson, Frank Gore, even Chris Johnson... you can get your money's worth.

If you're not a franchise guy, you're easily replaceable with the number of guys coming out of college.... pretty much like QB. You've got a very short time to prove you're difficult to replace.

Saying that I think they'll be fighting for a wild card doesn't mean I think they're great. I think the Steelers are in big trouble & I'm not high on Baltimore either. I've got Cincy winning the North. Texans winning the South, New England winning the East, & Denver winning the West.

Miami, KC, Indy, Cleveland, & Baltimore fighting for 2 spots.
Cleveland fighting for a wild card = LOL

Do you read the stuff you type before posting?

The Texans need to win the division,because I see K.C./ Miami/Baltimore as the wildcards, due to strength of schedule.

Not a big difference between my list & yours. I just think the Ravens have taken a bigger fall than you.

Cleveland, Miami, Indy... I think they're in that same bucket/tier.... maybe not so much with Richardson leaving Cleveland & after Thursday's game, I may be upgrading KC. Their defense looks to be better than average. Offensively, they've got some things to work out, but I think they will with the talent they've got & their schedule is week. They'll probably easily take the first wild card, with Cleveland, Miami, Indy fighting for the other.

And the expected trashing of TR to justify the trade begins...


Cleveland Browns ex-LB Scott Fujita says Trent Richardson was late for treatments, failed to engage with teammates and came off as high maintenance

Quote:
Fujita's remarks echo the sentiments of one Browns starter who anonymously told NFL.com that Richardson "has some things he needs to figure out before he becomes a dominant player ion the league...''

The Colts obviously think TR is special. If he is then the Colts solved the RB situation for the next 6-8 yrs.

As far as low 1st rd picks go (Which is what the Colts should have) they couldn't have found anybody better than Richardson.

I've heard that this class is deep at OL and DB's.

If a player falls into the late 1st, early 2nd then you can bet Grigson will take the risk of trading a 2014 2nd and a 2015 2nd/3rd to move up and take the player that Grigson likes. I love risk takers and Grigson is slowly but surely putting the pieces in place to make the Colts legit SB contenders for yrs to come.

Watching how the Colts do business vs how the Texans do business makes me sad. LOL

And this is based on what because it sure isn't the NFL?

Let's see:

Doug Martin
LeSean McCoy
Matt Forte
Ray Rice
Jamaal Charles
DeAngelo Williams
MJD
Frank Gore
Steven Jackson
Willis McGahee
Larry Johnson

I think it's interesting that the Browns didn't have anyone on their roster they were comfortable starting before they made this trade. That's assuming they're expecting McGahee to start.

I liked Ogbanaya at Texas, & thought he could do well in our system behind Arian & Tate.. but the Texans chose to go with Forsette.... who I also liked.

If nothing else, this has made the Browns interesting this year. This could very well be a turning point for them.

MJD < TR
Frank Gore < TR

These are my opinions of these RB's in relation to TR. Only 3 are/were better than TR. So he was well worth the gamble. IMHO

Most all were late 1st early 2nd rd picks. Which is where the Colts think they will be picking and they are getting TR this yr. They dont have to wait and hope a RB of Richardson fall to them in next yrs draft.

Richardson certainly could provide a boost and another dimension to the Colts' offense. The AFCSouth may have become a bit more competitive.

If you took away the draft status, he's really just another guy. Probably a little better than Mark Ingram. His "upside" is why he's worth a 1st rounder.

Was a terrible move for the colts. I didn't even get the Richardson hype coming out of college. Hes nothing special. Hes ok, but there are better backs for cheaper. Heck, if take Bradshaw over Richardson all day.

Colts going to be stuck with luck doing everything just like with manning with moves like that.

Said it in another thread. Trent Richardson has no explosion, no vision and is an average (and that's being nice) at best running back. A poor man's Legarrette Blount.
