The Cleveland Browns site didn’t include this quote in their summary of player quotes, but Tom Reed of the Plain Dealer certainly noticed it. Trent Richardson seems to be indicating that his two rushes in the second half weren’t a part of the original plan, but instead an unfortunate deviation.
“We [were] ready for the game,” Richardson said. “I think we’ve just got a game plan, and the game plan we had at the beginning of the game, I think we should’ve stuck with it. But we didn’t stick with the game plan and we tried to go do some other stuff, and the outcome came in a different way.”
Some other stuff, indeed. We’ll have to wait and see if any of the reporters ask Shurmur about that tomorrow.
