Browns running back Trent Richardson took the blame for Sunday's 23-20 overtime loss in Dallas on them, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Specifically, he pinned it on his failure to score from the 1 in the fourth quarter, when he tried to go up and over the line instead of hitting a hole. It wasn't the play he was looking for there, but he nevertheless took the rap.
"I can't take it back now, but it happens," the rookie running back said. "I didn't see what I thought I saw. I tried to jump over the pile and I didn't score. I guess you can put the game on me. I guess I'm the reason why we lost."
"I'm really saying it," he said. "You can put the game on me. I'm a man. I'm going to man up to my mistakes and my faults. No man is scared away of his own faults or decision-making. I made my decision and I messed up. That happens when you make decisions right on the run. It just happens."
Richardson said he wanted the ball with the game on the line, but "the play I wanted, we didn't call. Like I say, I'm with coach with whatever he calls."
Richardson wouldn't say what play he was hoping to run.
"I'm going to leave that alone. Coach made his decision and I agree with everything called." Source: The Redzone Attached Thumbnails

Some positive news from today’s Browns practice: cornerback Buster Skrine and wide receiver Josh Cooper each saw increased reps as they battle their respective injuries.
Skrine (concussion) was a limited participant Thursday after not practicing on Wednesday. Cooper (knee) was a full participant after being limited the day before.
In other notable injury news, Joe Haden (olbique...
When Buster Skrine went down with a concussion this past weekend while filling in for Joe Haden, the Browns had to turn to the bench once again. Johnson Bademosi (every color commentator’s worst nightmare) was the man up and he did pretty well. Bademosi made the team as an undrafted player from Stanford this season because he could play special teams. Now, he’s been named the...
As Steelers week continues here in Cleveland, we’re hearing more and more from coaches and players about their thoughts on the latest iteration of our Pittsburgh rivals. Today, we bring you the latest quotes from the star rookies on offense for the Browns as provided by the team’s media relations department.
Trent Richardson, who said he beat up on himself after his performance...
Via Terry Pluto’s great Facebook page, we received word of a neat Pro Football Focus study from Wednesday that analyzed dropped passes by NFL quarterbacks through 11 weeks of the season.
Surprise, surprise who ranks in the top two? Just one behind Detroit’s Matthew Stafford, Browns rookie Brandon Weeden has had 32 of his passes dropped this year, according to the study. These...
Cleveland Browns strong safety TJ Ward officially has $25,000 less to his name as the NFL levied a fine against the third-year safety for a hit which occurred in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
When Ward put the finishing touch on an attempted pass to Cowboys wide receiver Kevin Ogletree, the team was handed a 15-yard penalty for what was deemed a hit...
Like we did last year before it became fashionable, we’ll take a seat each week in our very own WFNY Browns film room and break down a little tape from the game, with a specific focus. Do enjoy.
The Browns did something really positive in Sunday’s loss to the Cowboys, and I wanted to focus on that this week. The defense was able to sack Romo seven times. That’s a nice number...
You can’t make these things up.
Apparently the Browns are going to be handing out inflatable white flags with the Browns helmet on them for Sunday’s game. Seriously. White flags. Did someone not think this through?

Browns safety T.J. Ward is appealing a $25,000 fine for a hit he maintains was legal under the NFL's rules on helmet-to-helmet contact.
Ward received a letter from the league on Wednesday informing him of the penalty for hitting Dallas wide receiver Kevin Ogletree on Sunday. Ward said replays conclusively show he did not touch any part of Ogletree's head. Ward was called...
It’s a holiday so this is a bit late, but it’s time to get your predictions on record. This is going to be interesting by the end of the season to see just how the fanbase ends up dealing with reality or realizing the reality of the Browns’ situation. With that in mind, please give me what you think will happen this weekend against the hated Steelers.
The Browns are bad and the last two weeks we've found out how bad the Cowboys are too. Browns fans shouldn't get too excited about the game last week in Dallas, the Cowboys are not a good football team.
After going a red hot 13-1 in week 11, I went 2-1 on Thanksgiving day. For the season that makes it 106-57. I'm still in striking distance of .750 for the season...
The final injury report for the week is in for the Cleveland Browns as they prepare to host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday in Cleveland.
Ruled out on Friday for the Browns were cornerback Dimitri Patterson (ankle) and safety Raymond Ventrone (calf) after both failed to practice all week.
Several Browns players were listed as probable on the Friday injury report after practicing...
As if the Browns weren't enough of an embarrassment to the people of Cleveland, their latest idea is even is worse than usual. Pictures above, someone thought it'd be a good idea to hand out these white flags at this week's game against the rival Steelers. Maybe they don't know the universal meaning of "waiving the white flag"....
Since 1975, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ faithful have gained national notoriety by flailing their “terrible towels” in the air at Steelers home games. Clearly not wanting to be outdone, the Cleveland Browns will also be rolling out their own version of this little gimmick. When the Steelers head to the rock n’ rock capital of the world this Sunday, the raucous Cleveland Dawg...
The Browns should smack this Batch up
