As soon as I read about the Colts trying to trade for an HB I was wondering what we could get for Ben Tate. Id hate to lose him to a division rival, but I didn`t expect a first rounder in return... I guess Id have gone for that trade... No other owner in the league would be ready to offer a first rounder to a HB I believe...

The tweets from irsay made me think they were getting someone the likes of mjd or Ray rice. Not the 3rd tier running back. Irsay has truly lost it

Yeah but Luck is way better than Weeden is. More of a threat. Teams playing Cleveland could just zero in on Richardson. Can't do that against Luck and Indy.

We'll see.

Richardson cant play offensive line can he? How about some playing two way football to reinforce that mediocre defense?

Well, the three backs they've used in the first two games (none of whom will ever be confused with Jim Brown or Earl Campbell) are averaging about 4.4 YPC running behind that O-line. No reason Richardson shouldn't be better than any of them.

Tate would probably would go for a fifth rounder. Richardson is younger, has more upside, and has accomplished more than Ben Tate has. This is the first year that Tate has been healthy isn't it?

Tate was healthy in 2011 (15 games) and had essentially the same yardage as Richardson had last year on about 90 fewer carries.

And in a strange turn, while Tate is older, because of the combination of his #2 RB status, and his injuries, Tate actually has 40 fewer NFL carries, and 69 fewer touches.

The Colts gave up a first for a reason. The dude can ball. However, it was a bit of a kneejerk due to their schedule and the rise of chargers, titans, and chefs.

Now the Colts have a bruising pass catching stud rb to take heat off Luck

Def improves them quite a bit on O.

Which will be a big improvement for Trent since up to now, those same defenses have been salivating to kill him.

I like this move for Indy. Richardson is a stud. CLE offense was garbage just like their OL. Puts them in serious contention with us.

New regime - up to and including owner. (And don't forget that one of those new FO members is Mike Lombardi, so sheer stupidity can't be ruled out as the underlying reason for the trade).

Sorry, but Texans fans can blow this off like it isn't a big deal all they want, but the Colts just got a lot better. They just got a very solid talent for their running game to add with guys like Wayne and Hilton. The Colts are continually getting better and this is not good for the Texans despite who wants to spin it.

Titans, Colts, and Texans schedules are all brutal this year facing NFC West and of course each other.

Texans still favorite, but we will have to earn it, we aint running away with anything.

BIG game for us against Ravens w what looms. We need to be 3-0.

Unfortunately, I see things differently than you do. Richardson's the best RB Indy's had since Edgerrin James. That thrills me not at all.

Not that his first game will tell us all that much, but it will be interesting to see how much they use him this weekend in San Fran, and how he does against that D.
