    Hillis runs for 4.4 YPC and 1170 yards in 2011(has a similar receiving year to Richardson 2 years later) and doesn't get a sniff of the top 100 NFL players. In an injury plagued season where Holmgren was hell bent on not giving Hillis the contract he deserved and the media is trying to bring Hillis down for his emotional demeanor, (he just wanted the team to show some due respect for what he put in) strep throat and mistake of missing a charity appearence he runs for 3.6 YPC. Hillis does this with Pinkston as a 1st year starter (I believe he was a rookie) and no Steinbach at LG.

    Then enter Trent Richardson, he runs for a mere 3.6 YPC, but has Josh Gordon to stretch the field. He has Pinkston now with a year of experience (still no Steinbach) and Brandon Weeden's YPA is significantly better than Colt McCoy's in Hillis' 2nd year with the Browns. Somehow with a situation that looks a little easier to find running room, Richardson is voted a top 10 RB and 71st best player in the NFL by his peers for the same rushing efficiency as Hillis. LMFAO.

    Now this obvious double standard opinion from Rotowire that Emerican sheeple are too ignorant to notice:
    [FONT=&quot]Recommendation:[/FONT][FONT=&quot] Hillis' recognizable name and relatively recent productivity make him look like a bigger acquisition for [/FONT][FONT=&quot]Tampa[/FONT][FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]Bay[/FONT][FONT=&quot] than he actually is. It's quite possible that rookie Mike James can be the better RB/FB tweener for the Buccaneers, and second-year speedsters like Michael Smith and Jeff Demps are still in the picture. Hillis is coming off consecutive seasons in which he averaged 3.65 and 3.64 yards per carry.

    Final words: I'll say it- and I'll say it confidently. Hillis at this point in his career is a better RB than Trent Richardson (who although he has significant talent hasn't produced efficiently). Only in Emerica sheeple!

    Thanks guys, I'll try to stop in a little bit this season. Forget Hillis' 4.4 YPC in his 1st season on that wretched Cleveland team (he equaled Chris Johnson's efficiency that year in what was a worse situation IMO). What about Hillis' 5.4 YPC as a starter in Denver before McDaniels' screws him?

    Fans would be talking about Hillis as Terrell Davis 2.0 in that system. It's perfectly suited to his skill set. Now he's playing for ****ano! Only in Emerica would a man with this kind of talent be in this situation due to being a white RB.

    I too was surprised and pleased to see the return of a "Hall of Famer" poster. Nice to be able to read your informative posts again TJR. Don't be a stranger. And to any other lurking former members--don't be shy. I think there is a momentum building (though it is difficult to see) in our favor.

    He was traded to the Colts today and I swear, you'd think the Browns were giving up Walter Payton in his prime! I don't know what it is about this guy--yes, we all know the DWFs "love dem sum affletes" but Browns fans, the average DWFs plus every analyst are in an uproar that a team could trade such a talent, a talent that's averaged 3.5 YPC for his career. Unbelievable!

    2 runs over 20 yards with a long of 32, thats it. He has power, thats about it. Unlike Richardson, Ingram doesn't have power, and Saints fans realize he sucks and constantly talk about how do they get rid of him, can they trade him, can the coach just stop using him because he just gets 2 yards or loses yards.

    Alabama backs are all busts lately. Eddie Lacy hasn't shown much gets a concussion and then James Starks comes in and puts up a great day (which wasn't that great, 132 yards against the Redskins, just called great because its been years since they had a 100 yard rusher in a game due to the refusal to use John Kuhn) and I remember someone arguing with me that Jed Collins couldn't do what Lacy does, well at this point Id say he could. I think that Alabama line combined with the passing of AJ McCarron has opened up some huge holes that you can drive a truck through. Lacy has gotten fatter and more out of shape as well so what little ability he did have has suffered.

    I can't believe so much credit has been given to a fullback disguised as a tailback. At best you can say he looked like a workhorse type back in Cleveland. When the Browns low balled Hillis in early 11' and then didn't want him back after the 11' season he put up similar numbers to Richardson but the difference is nobody wanted him as a feature back and he signed with KC as clear number 2 back. No double standard here let's move on...:peep:

    If Richardson "blossoms" with the Colts it will be because of the sustained opportunities he's had to develop, unlike White RBs, who get no opportunities after high school and when the occasional one amazingly outlasts all the hurdles in his way in college and the NFL and gets a chance (Hillis being about the only example), his career is all but over the first time he gets injured or doesn't run as effectively, or shows a "character issue." Hillis was an extreme exception in that all of the other few White tailbacks in the past dozen years who were the main ball carrier for a game because of injuries (Hoover, Jervey, Bennett, Evans, Forsey) all did well and all were immediately demoted anyway.

    Watching the NFL Network for a few minutes, they were playing the reactions of some Cleveland DWFs to the trade of Richardson. One said he had to pull off the highway after hearing the news because he was in shock, while another talked about getting the "pitchforks" ready to use. If these dimwits had 1/100 as much concern about their country as they do about black mercenary football players, the U.S. wouldn't be going down the toilet like it is.

    I equate this trade to something similar to when the dot.com bubble burst. Insiders in the Browns organization know what they have the but the rest of the NFL doesn't.....

    The Colts' line is almost as bad as the Browns line, so I don't expect Richardson to do much there, either. Having Luck as QB to cause LBs and safeties to drop back will be the only help he gets. Besides that, he's really not very good. I expect a continuation of his career 3.5 ypc, if that.

    Black mercenary is such a good term. I've never understood the complete devotion to a sports team and the adoration of its individual pieces WHILE they play for that team when very rarely are any of them ever even from the area of the team that they play for. They might be playing for the local ball club now but they can be moved at any time. DWFs routinely dump hundreds on dollars on merchandize for a player just to hate them as soon as they're traded to another team.

    The Colts line is worse, the Browns had Joe Thomas at LT who is like top 3 at hand Alex Mack at Center, who is in top for his position, there awere quite a few plays they ran to minimize the other's weaknesses. At best he could have a Thomas Jones type season if the safties and linebackers don't respect the run, he could get a bunch of 5 to 10 yard carries before being unable to make the defender miss. I think it actually can be harder to run against teams that don't stack the box because it may be easier to get 4 to 5 yards but breaking longer runs is harder because after you get past that more defenders to miss. With the box stacked, with good blocking you have a might have only 1 or 2 defenders to make miss in the open field, which apparently Richardson was only able to get 32 yards once with fewer people to make miss.



    However his burst is horrible which is why I think he rarely got a big run Most of the plays I have seen of him are all because of power. Hes the whole damn reason they put out the rule for rbs not being able to use their head, because that was literally the only example they could dhow last year, was him hitting Kurt Coleman with his helmet coming off.

    he might get 4 ypc in Indy but he won't be anything special. Every back has struggled there, hes not any different in skillset.

    The Drunk White Fans certainly are quite the phenomenon aren't they. I'd like to think that in 200 years or so, when hopefully there is an advanced, sophisticated and honest White society again, the historians and thinkers will study the DWF with bewilderment. They'll probably doubt that they are related to these people and see this time period we are currently in as a low point for civilized "Western Culture". Or I could be wrong and the future devolves into Mike Judge's "Idiocracy".

    Collin Cowturd went full retard the other day. He called Richardson an elite running back.

    We're already there and it took only 50 years of concentrated effort.

    Here's Scott Fujita on Trent Richardson:

    Sure, the Trent Richardson trade was shocking to say the least, but recent reports have revealed a few truths about the second-year running back that the Indianapolis Colts‘ fan base just doesn’t want to hear. The strangest part of this trade has to be the fact that Cleveland Browns general manager Michael Lombardi is actually the one who initiated the Richardson talks. Well, former-Browns linebacker Scott Fujita gave us a nice look at why Lombardi made the decision he did.

    First and foremost, Fujita was drafted into the NFL in 2002, which means he doesn’t take to kindly to the new generation of “softer†superstars. With that being said, Fujita took aim at Richardson on Friday and his critique is actually pretty detailed:

    “When a player enters the league wearing headphones incessantly, shows up late for treatments, and makes little effort to engage with his teammates, he can quickly develop a reputation for being insular and high-maintenance.â€

    So there you have it — a Nick Saban-coached NFL running back with 11 touchdowns in just his rookie season was “high-maintenance.†Now, Fujita didn’t totally read Richardson the riot act, yet the retired linebacker made his point and gave Colts fans a reason to worry about their new favorite player. Whether or not Richardson meshes with Indianapolis remains to be seen, but this bit of information from Fujita forces us all to give the Browns the benefit of the doubt for the time being.

    When I first heard of the trade and the talking heads talking about how Cleveland was "giving up" and how bad a trade it was for them, I couldn't disagree more. Richardson, with his poor attitude and low yards per carry, was clearly not even starting material and yet Lombardi got a first round pick for this way over-rated dud. You also got to like the draft pick of Jordan Cameron and the offense immediately centered around his obvious beast-like talent. No racial apprenticeship at all! No magical negroe running read option bust offense. I'm really starting to like Cleveland. I'll officially jump all the way on the band wagon when they sign Peyton Hillis! Talk about a perfect time to do it. Right after what looks like a failed attempt to resurrect Willis Magahee (9 carries for 8 yards). Let's all hope for the return of Cleveland's best running back in the last - 30 years.

    The great Trent Richardson who replaced Peyton Hillis and has universally been considered a "stud" by the DWFs and was chosen by Indianapolis over Toby Gerhart had 20 carries for 60 yards yesterday. His yards per carry this year is now at a whopping 3.1. Meanwhile, Cleveland has not lost a game without him and will have an extra first round draft pick next year.

    I was actually predicting he'd do better in Indy because he'd have a good quarterback in Andrew Luck. He' actually doing worse, but with all that upside he will have five years to prove himself.

    Richardson's rookie season situation to find running room was more comparable to Hillis' monster 1st season in Cleveland. 4.4 YPC that year in Cleveland would equate to about 5 YPC in Houston and 5.5-6 YPC in Shanahan's old Denver. Hillis averaged 5 YPC, 5.9 YPC and 7.3 YPC in his starts for Shanahan before getting screwed by McEminem the following year.

    Remember Steinbach was injured in Hillis' second season and the right side of the line was worse for Hillis than Richardson as a rookie. When Richardson was a rookie the rookie Hillis had on the right side now had a year experience. Richardson had a better YPA from Weeden than McCoy's 2nd year and he had Gordon to get that 8th man out of the box more often, yes he also didn't have Steinbach.

    Hillis had a 0.8 YPC better average (a huge difference) and a better long run. Richardson fumbled less, but made less plays. T. Rich's receiving stats were similar to Hillis' 1st season in Cleveland. RB is an instinctive position that a RB almost always figures out in his 1st or 2nd season. Richardson looks more like a 2nd string RB this year again, where Hillis at this point would still be on the cusp of the top 10 starting RBs in the league if put in to duty! Other than a little better ball security and possibly being more durable, T. Rich clearly is an inferior back in every other way. Speed is similar.

    I submit that Richardson is the most over-hyped player in NFL history because the media doesn't want people to think of the Hillis' injustice. It's more that than Richardson being an Alabama player. We all saw the constant smear campaign against Hillis from Yahoo and other media outlets in his second season. "Shutdown Corner" is the worst. The Cleveland DWFs like sheeple went along with it.

    I watched a lot of the Indy-Seattle game as I was on the road and didn't have access to Direct Ticket so had to watch just the two early games on the dinosaur networks. Richardson was continually stuffed at the line of scrimmage on carry after carry during the game, while even fellow first round bust Donald Brown often found at least some running room. Finally, Richardson ran through a hole that was literally 10 feet wide and went about 12 yards before losing his balance and falling down without being touched ("self-tackling," a specialty of blacks, who tend to have poor balance). The home crowd roared as if Richardson had broken off a 60 yard TD run, while the announcers were similarly orgasmic.

    Richardson was an early first round pick, and he's from the SEC (and is another Alabama RB who looks to be a bust), which is why the agenda is in hyperdrive for him not to fail. But the reality is he's looked lousy this season, even worse than his nondescript rookie season. Scott Fujita, who was one of the most outspokenly liberal players in the league, had it right about Richardson, which speaks volumes. Of course, maybe Richardson willl "blossom" in his fifth or sixth season as a starter ala Thomas Jones, or to a lesser extent Ron Dayne. A White RB in Richardson's situation would already be booing out of the stadium -- and the league.
