Found September 12, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:
My expectations are always going to be high. I always set my goals high and the sky is always the limit as I see it as how good I can be or how good this team can be as a group and as a unit how much we can come together and try to do the best we can to win [...] I’m going to play my role. If coach needs me on third down, I’m going to go in on third down. If he needs Brandon [Jackson] to be in there, if he needs Chris [Ogbonnaya] to be in there, Montario [Hardesty], whoever it is we are all out here hungry for the same thing. We are all ready to win so whichever one of us he puts in there, we will do everything it takes to win.

– Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson, Wednesday, discussing the team’s upcoming contest against the Cincinnati Bengals. The third-overall selection carried the ball 19 times in his first NFL contest, primarily as a two-down back, netting 39 yards.
