    I just don't know, it would seem like it. They've started out bad, but I thought they already kind of had a bright future with Wheeden (sp) and Richardson. Schefter was like, yeah well the Browns new management is clearly focused on the future and they want picks.

    It's like do they like collecting picks or something? They already had a pretty damn good running back. It's like they are wanting to blow up things after one year.

    I'd be livid if I were a Browns fan.

    Luck, Richardson, Hilton. New triplets
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Richardson was used to not only winning at Alabama, but being on top all the time. Then he goes to Cleveland, which might be one of the worst-run franchises in pro sports. Now, he's coming to Indy, surrounded by players and management who expect to win every week. Hopefully the change of scenery will do him good.

    Biggest Colts trade since Dickerson?

    Holy crap, what an amazing trade.

    I believe also that because most of Richardson's draft deal was a signing bonus, his cap numbers should be relatively small. I think it will be 2.25 million next year and 3.18 million the year after that.

    My one trepidation is giving up a first round pick for any RB, but if you're going to give one up for anyone it probably would be Richardson because of age, contract, talent, and small amount of miles on his legs. I would love if the Colts would have a couple great years with Richardson and then trade him again before they potentially have to give him a huge deal. But it's probably still a good deal even if they don't.

    I've seen quite a bit of people on twitter and such commenting on his low 3.6 YPC from last year. This article does a nice job explaining why it's not really an issue.

    How good is Richardson in pass blocking and catching out of the backfield?
    It doesn't really matter. We have a 3rd down back in Bradshaw for that. This guy will be in on running downs. He is legit when healthy.

    I'm excited. I wonder what number he'll take since Ballard has 33 already. Moving forward, once Vic is healthy, that'll be a damn good duo. TRich and Bradshaw should also be very good.

    Wtf are the Browns doing? Lol

    I can't believe Cleveland did this. Great acquisition for us as we land our RB for the future.

    Cleveland now has 2 picks in the first, third, and fourth rounds in 2014. Seven picks in 4 rounds is a lot to bargain with. I would guess they are trying to follow the method the Pats have made popular by trying to amass as many picks as they can. Of course we will have to wait and see if the new guys they hired are as dumb as the old guys they hired...

    It's certainly better than when Chris "Fredo" Polian traded a first rounder for Tony freaking Ugoh.

    Nice to finally have a back that can break off a big run.

    Still, with a suspect O-Line and poor defense, not sure how much I like giving up a first rounder for Trent. I know he's a big prospect and former #3 pick, but still. Lots more holes to fill were needed than RB. The Colts run game has been pretty good to start the season.

    Having said that and knowing he's a former #3 overall, this could be a steal of a deal for the Colts.

    Only works in their favor is the 2014 draft is loaded. Anyone know if it's supposed to be a deep draft?

    I don't like it. Running is not how you win football games anymore.
    And running a post-up heavy inside-out offense is not how you win basketball games anymore.

    I know they're different leagues, but my point is that as long as you do what you do better than your opposition than you're going to be a successful team.

    You ALWAYS need to be able to run the football. That doesn't mean it has to be the focal point of your offense, but you must be able to do it in January. The later years of Manning's career were squandered by poor running games. I absolutely love the trade. The odds of our first rounder being better than Richardson are slim.

    Trent Richardson learned of trade to Colts on the radio

    Posted by Curtis Crabtree on September 19, 2013, 12:06 AM EDT

    Getty Images
    The last thing Trent Richardson had to be expected on Wednesday was that he was no longer going to be a part of the Cleveland Browns future plans. Richardson was the third overall pick in the draft just a season ago and he was just two games into his sophomore season with the team. It had to be even more difficult to take when he learned of his trade to the Indianapolis Colts – not from the Browns, Colts or his agent – but from turning on the radio.

    According to Mark Schwab of CBS-19 and 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland, Richardson said a friend called him asking if he’d been traded. He told his friend to “shut up” and hung up the phone, but when he turned on his radio he learned that he had, in fact, been dealt to the Colts.

    Information moves fast in this day and age but it seems a little callous for Richardson to have to find out about the trade in such a fashion. Colts owner Jim Irsay had been going crazy on Twitter over the acquisition for nearly an hour before the team announced the trade. It seems as though someone from the Browns could have relayed the team’s plans on to Richardson before the deal became public.

    It would have come as a shock to Richardson either way that the team that had selected him just one year ago was already moving on but It still would have been better to hear the news from someone representing the teams involved in the deal first than from the radio.

    Those 51 receptions were more than the combined receptions of RBs on the Colts last season. He's the best receiver in the backfield the Colts have had since Marshall Faulk.

    Default Re: Trent Richardson to Colts for 1st round pick

    Man, oh man. I have a million thoughts on this.

    On what we gave up: A first-rounder. I'm a big believer in known quantities. I also believe that draft picks are at best a 50/50 crap shoot even with the very first pick of the draft, and that ratio only worsens immediately and dramatically after the first 5 picks. Draft picks are... stabs in the dark. Most draft picks don't remain with the team. We got rid of a mid- to late- first rounder, a place where we probably wouldn't have gotten anyone of note, for a very notable RB who is young and dynamic. I wouldn't want to get rid of a high first-rounder... but a mid- to late- first rounder for a top-flight RB who just went #3 last year and did nothing over the course of the season to disprove his draft position? No brainer. I have no problem trading them for a known quantity.
    On the player: TRich is that known quantity. He runs with a style that most reminds me of Emmitt Smith or Edgerrin James. He's not a blazer, but a patient, shifty runner with good vision. He's very versatile; an every down back. Can run it with power up the gut, can shift outside, is creative in the open field. He's a good receiver. He's a decent blocker. In my opinion, he's the strongest overall RB prospect to come out of the draft since AP. I feel like we just reversed the bad mojo of the Marshal Faulk trade; we got an all-around good back for peanuts.. He put up really good numbers last year for an extremely ****** team. He was dinged up --- but he played. And not badly. He scored 12 touchdowns, had 1300+ yards in total offense, and that was with opposing defenses mostly focusing on him. If he didn't mind Weeden, he's going to absolutely love Luck. And TRich has to be embarrassed and pissed off, which means he's gonna run it mean.
    How it fits for the Colts: Our offense could be like the Triplets. We have the pieces. If only Dwayne Allen was playing this year... TRich faced 8-man boxes in Cleveland, but they aren't going to be able to do that here with Luck and the receivers we have. And Luck having TRich in the flat to dump to is going to be awesome. Just think, before the season, we were looking at the prospect of Vick Ballard spearing our rushing attack. Now we have Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw. Our backfield just became serious.
    In regards to the Browns: What the **** are they thinking? I know it's a new regime, but how many damn new regimes are they going to have? They go through a new regime every 2-3 years. I heard some knuckleheads on the radio praise the Browns for stockpiling a first-round pick. They already were going to HAVE a high 1st round pick this next year. The quarterbacks coming out are not on the level of the 2012 class. You're looking at Bridgewater, McCarron, and Johnny Football. I'll pass on all 3. The Colts 1st-rounder this year is going to be mid- to late- round. You can't even tell me that having a great, young, cheap RB as part of your new build isn't a good idea. They are stocking up for a big draft. They just HAD a big draft with multiple first rounders last year. They used those picks on TRich and a 29-year old QB. Why they drafted Weeden over Wilson was beyond me. I was with Gruden last year --- I loved Wilson coming out and couldn't believe he fell as far as he did. The Browns even traded a slew of picks just to move up ONE SPOT and draft TRich! They basically traded 3 picks LAST year to essentially move DOWN about 20 spots. Idiots!
    On running backs: I get tired of hearing "they're a dime a dozen". No, they are not. They are just as important as every other position on the field, save QB. I've been longing for a back like Edge since he left; TRich is that back. "You don't need running backs to win a SB". Really? In that case, you don't really *need* any position to win a SB, do you? I mean ask the Ravens, they didn't really "need" a QB to win a SB in 2000. Every SB winning team has holes in their roster, and the holes are different from team to team. It's not a generic sweeping statement to say that one particular field is just insanely irrelevant. Most people think kickers are a dime a dozen. Ask the Patriots what a kicker meant during their SB runs. I get so tired of hearing how "X" position is unimportant. It's not about that. It's about the overall team you put together.

    I imagine that Richardson will be pretty happy once the initial shock of the trade fades away. He is going to a superior franchise and will be playing with a real QB.
