Just 50 Carries in, Trent Richardson is a Leader in Cleveland

While Greg Little is preening and posing amidst a 14-point deficit and a shower of hashtags, Browns running back Trent Richardson is mostly stoic and calculated. Certainly, when Richardson crosses the goal line as he has twice in his very young career, he exudes a level of energy that is matched only by Cleveland fans watching the plays as they unfold. But until that moment when...
