Even thought running back Trent Richardson has been a big disappointment for the Indianapolis Colts since they acquired him from the Browns earlier this season, they would do it all over again if they could, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
Per @RapSheet: “I talked to Colts source today: If the Colts had to do it again, they would absolutely still trade for Trent Richardson."

What’s really telling is that Donald Brown got the carries in crunch time during tonight’s game between the Colts and Titans.
Indianapolis ended up winning by three points because of Brown’s ability to move the ball. They clearly trust him more than Richardson right now.

Eight weeks later, the Trent Richardson trade looks like nothing shy of a brilliant franchise move from the Cleveland Browns. The Indianapolis Colts sent a first round pick to Cleveland for Richardson on Sept. 18. Since joining the Colts, Richardson has averaged 2.8 yards per carry. He has rushed for no more than 60 yards […]
The Indianapolis Colts shocked the NFL world earlier this season after trading a first-round pick for former first-round running back Trent Richardson, prying him away from the Cleveland Browns. Richardson was expected to give the Colts sagging running game a boost, but has been a major disappointment after joining the club. While Richardson struggles, Donald Brown’s success on...
Indianapolis running back Donald Brown appears to be the better of the two running back options in the Colts backfield.Fantasy Spin:Trent Richardson (8-for-22) just can't seem to find the holes, while Brown rushed 14 times for 80 yards and two scores last night versus Tennessee.
In the eight games since the Colts traded a first-round draft pick to Cleveland for running back Trent Richardson, he’s produced a mediocre 96 carries for 272 yards.
Those aren’t numbers you’d expect from a third down back, let alone a No. 3 overall pick. Richardson has struggled, but the Colts aren’t about to give up on him.

After watching the game this past week on Thursday night, and nearly having a stroke once again, it is painfully obvious that Donald Brown needs to start over Trent Richardson. Yes, you heard that correctly. Donald Brown couldn’t run against me these past few years, let alone an NFL defense that is running at an average of 5.9 yards a carry. Trent Richardson for this season, including...
The Browns basically have no idea what they’re going to do in the draft because they have no idea where they will pick and are constantly analyzing their own roster. Having said that, it’s reasonably to assume with their moves this year – most notably with the Trent Richardson trade – that they would be preparing for the chance to potentially draft a running back. Now, Lane...
The Colts won last night! These links are certain to all be good news, right!
The Cikts are still happy with Trent Richardson and just, sheesh.

For years the Colts have been trying to do one thing (besides win)--develop a consistent running game. They hoped Donald Brown would be the man when they took him in the first round back in 2009, but he has been a role player at best. They thought they might finally have it in Vick Ballard, but an early season ending injury kept that question from being answered.

Be honest. If someone told you during training camp that the fate of this Colts season would come down to Donald Brown and Coby Fleener, where would you have this team after week 11?
I know. It’s an ugly 7-3. But, still.
For the record, I never stopped...
Two out of the last three weeks, division opponents have had the Colts dominated at halftime, only to swiftly blow it in the second half. At least the Texans had the excuse of their head coach collapsing at the break. Tennessee has no such explanation.The Titans took a 17-6 lead into the locker room. By the halfway point of the third quarter, Andrew Luck had already juked out a Titans...
