Waiting For Next Year:
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 the ball crosses the goal line, Richardson displays a workmanlike attitude.
An otherwise tough day in the trenches, gaining a mere 2.3 yards per carry, when the rookie back out of Alabama was able to turn a busted play into a six-yard touchdown when he bounced the play to his immediate left after running right into the backs of the men who were to create a hole just to the left of center Alex Mack, it was those very men whom Richardson tracked down, one by one, on the Browns sidelines following the play.
A seated Mack got a fist bump to the shoulder pads. Then came Shawn Lauvao and Jason Pinkston and Mitchel...

This was Trent Richardson’s chance to show Jim Brown he was wrong. It just didn’t go so well…
For the first time since Brown called Richardson an “ordinary” running back the two met on the field. Richardson described as a “shaking moment”, as both men described the former statement as nothing but a motivational tool.
“A lot of people took the message the wrong way...
Rick is still the man with the film room pieces, and I believe he might still have one this week. But I watched the beginning of the Browns game again yesterday and wanted to share a couple things about the Bills’ defensive gameplan.
The Bills, not surprisingly, committed resources to stopping Trent Richardson from hurting them. It is a rational plan to stop the biggest threat...
Trent Richardson had a terrible day working out of the Cleveland Browns backfield against the Buffalo Bills today. Richardson only rushed for 27 yards on 12 carries for a 2.3 yard per carry average. For Trent Richardson and Browns fans, this performance couldn’t have come at a worse time. Not only did the Browns need a productive day to help with their less than productive offense...
The physical running style of Trent Richardson is what we love and hate about him. It is what makes him successful, but it is also what limits him in practice and puts him at risk of an injury on a week to week basis. He suffered a minor knee injury this past week, but is back on the practice field and appears ready to take on the Ravens in this weeks Thursday night showcase.
Guys like Greg Little who drop the ball yet do a dance while we’re 0-3? I would sit his ass down and tell him, ‘listen my friend, there’s no I in team, but there’s two I’s in “idiot.” Get the job done and stop the B.S.’
– Fomer Cleveland Browns head coach Sam Rutigliano, in an interview on 92.3 The Fan, when asked what he would do with wide receiver Greg Little...
It is a short week for us too, so here we go. Gotta get those surveys filled out today and early tomorrow before the Browns do battle against the Ravens. I noted this morning on Twitter that the NFL Network was promoting the game with a highlight video of Greg Little dunking the football over the crossbar of the goal posts. Not to pick on Greg Little, because he’s taken enough...
Pat Shurmur was pretty blunt with the media today. After watching it, he still somehow seemed to come off defensive too, which is ponderous after a game like the Browns played yesterday. Still, he seemed to intimate that Greg Little’s spot on the active roster on gameday could be in jeopardy if he continues to drop the ball.
After talking about Greg Little and his posing antics...
BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Once he's handed the ball on Thursday night, Trent Richardson knows what's next.
Hall of Fame-level contact.
"Ray Lewis is going to come at me," the Browns rookie running back said, "and I'm going to come right back at him. That's football."
Richardson, quarterback Brandon Weeden and Cleveland's other rookies are about to...
The coordinators discuss the Baltimore Ravens as well as what the Browns can improve upon.
Rookie Trent Richardson and Brandon Weeden talk about the start of the season and what they can do better.
The 0-3 Browns will return to primetime with a visit to Baltimore to take on the 2-1 Ravens.
This game will be the first following the end of the NFL referee lockout, with real referees on tap to officiate tonight. So this means no more complaints, no matter how valid, can be attributed to poor officiating!
After a terrible performance in Week 1, it looked like...
If he's not careful, Browns wide receiver Greg Little will be posing on the bench.
Cleveland coach Pat Shurmur said Monday that he's considering changes to the lineup for his winless team and made it clear that if Little, whose on-field antics have angered some fans, doesn't do a better job of holding onto quarterback Brandon Weeden's passes then he'll lose his...
Thursday – 9/27/12
Happy Thursday folks. Less than two work days until the ever so far away weekend. This week I’m going to do a different layout on my preview and review and see how everyone likes it compared to my previous layout. Enjoy folks because it should be a fun game for Ravens fans tonight.
This week Thursday Night Football will be hosting an AFC North...
The fan reaction to the return of the regular NFL referees in time for the Cleveland Browns to play the Baltimore Ravens is funny. While some fans where excited to see the return of the regular NFL refs, other said the Browns are going to need a lot more than the regular NFL refs to get a win against the Baltimore Ravens. The NFL extended the deal for 8 years to bring the referees...
In the fallout of the latest thoroughly demoralizing loss of the Pat Shurmur era, a matchup in which the Browns were dominated in all three phases of the game by the Buffalo Bills, Shurmur and his friends at the Browns’ wholly owned press organ want you to know that it’s all Greg Little’s fault. Little dropped one five-yard pass in Browns’ territory with about 30 seconds...
