    Another spectacular game from Richardson -- 14 carries for 37 yards (2.6 average) and a critical fumble against the Broncos on national television. It seems like the Colts are using fellow bust Donald Brown more each game because Richardson sucks so bad.

    Even the DWF's are beginning to realize he sucks.

    Hillis may have actually had two rookies starting on the o-line in 2011- due to Steinbach's injury. Richardson I believe had one rookie-the RG- in 2012 and had two 2nd year starters with Steinbach no longer on the team. Infinite patience for black RBs and none for white ones is spot on. The much maligned Hillis' efficiency in 2011 and 2012 outdoes "super athlete" Richardson's efficiency in 2012 and 2013.

    The chuckle of the day comes courtesy of Weenieworld:

    Colts OC Pep Hamilton reiterated he wants to get Trent Richardson's season kick started. This is falling on deaf ears a bit now after Richardson handled only ten touches in last Sunday night's loss to the Texans. The Colts seem intent on keeping T-Rich in a committee with Donald Brown. "I just have to find ways to creatively get the ball to Trent," said Hamilton. "A lot of different ways, not just out in space, but do a better job with run schemes that feature his instincts. But he’s gotten better each week, and we expect that he’ll continue to make big plays for us."


    Continue to make big plays? Exactly what big plays have those been?

    I was under the impression that the Colts actually won. Of course, this just adds to WeenieWorlds credibility.

    More evidence of what I have long suspected; they don't watch the games, they just look at the stat lines.

    Richardson sex tape all over the news and I guess the internet. 3 women, iguess he wanted to match his ypc

    seriously, I thought only d list celebrities do this to try and gain fame, or maybe thats what he is trying to do, get some reality tv show because he sees the writing on the wall HE SUCKS at football. He should know that they will give him another 5 years to live up to his upside. Well guys that never show anything get 6, people thought his average play during his rookie season was great so he might get 8.

    Could of had Gerhart who Luck supposedly specifically suggested the GM get. Ryan Grigson is a spineless casteite however and was scared of looking bad if he traded for the best RB in college football (his last year at Stanford) who had been sitting on the bench for 3 and 1/2 seasons after dropping to the mid second round (because he is white) even though there was little chance Toby would fail.

    Grigson talking to himself last night "I doggon worried that givin up a 2nd round pick for a 2nd rounder who had been sitting on the bench for most of 3.5 years could backfire...White noise, I'm white as a ghost...I can't look pro-white. Yeah I know he averaged a full 4.9 YPC as a 3 game starter for them Vikes, but... dang nabbit stop lyin! I'm even more scared now because these drunk white sheeple are seein thorough my cowardice...Least I gots the media on my side...Can't wait until my morning donut. Hope Trent doesn't find it... it's one of two holes Trent can find! Yuck!" Toby please save me!"

    In boxing the old wives tale is sex weakens your legs and makes you less vicious. With the numbers Richardson has put up this season he might be the Lion King.....:biggrin1::mod:

    I tell you the absolute worst thing about the society we live in today is that bestiality is a common practice. It's quite sickening.

    Another disparaging article about Trent's uselessness:

    I guarantee they could have had Toby for a 4th round pick. The Vikings aren't using him and they'll get nothing when he walks in free agency.

    They could have had Toby, and they could have had Peyton Hillis.
    They blew it!

    They sure did!

    They should have traded for Gerhart and given him a multi-year extension. Then they would have had a premier quarterback and a premier running back.

    Peyton Hillis is a proven running back. They could have had him for free.

    Instead they have Trent Richardson and don't have a 1st round draft pick. That's bad management.

    I found this in an article earlier today and found it to be very amusing. Yep, that's the Trent Richardson that we here at CF all know:

    Richardson took the yellow line on this play (via Pete Prisco):

    eh, I see this every week from multiple backs, I think they just lack either the vision or the agility to make that cut. Mark Ingram is even worse, another product of Alabama's great blocking. In his and Richardson's case, I say its agility. Ingram had a 4.62 20 yard shuttle, the same as his 40 yard dash. He has to gear down so much if he makes a cut he is getting tackled in the backfield.

    Judging by the plays Richardson did fairly well on with the Browns, Id say its also agility, mostly straight up the gut plays, he just had bigger holes and a few plays where he knocked a safety over.

    read the article agility trumps straight line speed. Football isn't in straight lines, what the point of a good 40 when you have to slow down so much to make a cut, and in Ingram and Richardson's case, they dont even appear to have good straight line speed.

    Arian Foster ran a 4.7something but good agility and vision to find the cutback lane and had plenty of nice runs although it looks like the workload they gave him with his injuries, he is done.
