In Topic: Trent Richardson to Colts for a 1st rounder per Shefty

Today, 01:02 PM

Let me look at the list

 

Brandon Jacobs - Come on, not a Bum
Moe Williams - I don't remember so bum
80 year old Jerome Bettis - GL for a great blocking Steeler team, what he have like 300 yards that yr
90 year old Stephen Davis
Lendale White - ok, he turned into a bum but he had workout/weight problems.  COP/GL to a great CJ2K yr.
Willie Parker - Really, he had a couple of good FF yrs
Travis Henry - Product of Shanny, hard runner
Domanick Williams - Product of Shanny like system, got injuried and infected
Joseph Addai - Product of Peyton Manning but did show talent, wouldn't say bum
Ryan Grant - Avg, but hard runner
Benjarvis Green-Ellis - slow but solid runner, never fumbles which keeps him on the field
LeRon McClain - GL/COP on a high scoring Chargers
TJ Duckett - GL back on a team that had Dunn and Vick
Tim Hightower - Bum, product of Shanny
Knowshon Moreno - Product of Manning
Mike Tolbert - GL/COP on a high scoring Chargers
Earnest Graham - ok, Bum... fresh legs for 1 solid yr.  Good FB that got an opp to be an RB
Chris Wells - was good till he got hurt again

Hillis - he looked good for a little while

 

So I would say about half that list are bums or avg backs, but in many of their cases they needed support from 1)high scoring offenses, 2) rushing QB, 3) COP/GL to a superior Back and/or 4) great run blocking to achieve their double digit TDs.  In his Rookie yr Richardson wasn't supported by a superior back or rushing QB and wasn't on a high flying offense.  So has a bum or avg back achieved double digit TDs pretty much on his own, I would say yes but its rarer than most want you to believe.

 

The guy regressed last yr, I can't say he didn't.  And there were so many plays where he would run to the line and have his head down looking at the ground, how do you expect to pick up any yardage like that.  It was like he had no condifence in himself or the line blocking him.  But I don't understand why people are in here beating their chest that its over for him.  If you got him ranked in your top 10 - 15 RB then that a little high, but theres also value here.  Indy is doing everything in their power to make it work for Richardson and hes going to get a chance to be a work horse... sorry if that perks my ears.

the 12 TDs impressed me and probably most others.  You don't get 12 "lucky" TDs your rookie season, especially on a 2012 Cleveland Brown team lead by rookie Weeden and raw rookie Gordon.  You got to have some skills to get that number.


Rushing TDs are about opportunity and have nothing to do with skill. The biggest stiff in the world can run for double digit TDs given enough goal line carries.

 

 
4 TDs or so, sure... but double digits; no.  Evidence of a bum racking double digit TDs

I don't understand how anyone who saw him run last year can have any hope. 

Because I saw him run the year before that :shrug:
 
When I see 3.6 ypc as a rookie, I think "This guy isn't that good".  What impressed you about his rookie year?

In Topic: Rolando McClain arrested

According to NFL.com, McClain showed up late and when he finally got there, he couldn't finish his conditioning test. McClain also didn't do any of the drills he was supposed to do.

 

LOL

 

 

taking classes at the University of Alabama, where he's majoring in family financial planning.

 

The 24-year-old also said the he spent almost $600,000 on friends and family after signing his first NFL contract.

 

LOL

 

 

If McClain does get a second chance at a comeback, it will definitely be in Baltimore again. Thanks to the contract McClain signed in April 2013, the Ravens still own his rights.

 

LOL

 

That contract -- a five-year, $40-million deal -- came in 2010 with the Raiders. After only three seasons with the team, McClain was released by Oakland in April 2013.

 

:facepalm:

 

This turd and JaBustus epitomize the final years of Al's regime.  So sad.

 

 

nah, he was ranked in the top 10 that yr (right?). If Raiders didn't take him then someone would of shortly afterwards. 

did he get paid for today's "workout"

 

 

IIRC, players travel/arrangements are taken care of if needed. 

 

 

sounds like their ready to rip that contract up
