Larry Brown Sports:
Jim Brown, the greatest running back in Cleveland Browns and arguably NFL history, has expressed on two occasions that he does not think highly of Trent Richardson, who was drafted third overall by the team in April.
Richardson finally responded to Brown’s criticism.
“He has his own thoughts. That’s him being him,” Richardson said earlier this month, according to ESPN’s Jamison Henley. “I have no problem with it. I just wish the best of luck for him whatever he’s doing in life.
“I laugh at the situation,” Richardson said. “You don’t know me from spic to span. But he’s Jim Brown. He’s done a lot here and I haven’t done anything yet. I have a lot to accomplish and big shoes to fill. When it comes down to it, I have to work and make sure I make him a believer. I haven’t done anything yet.”
Brown may not know Richardson, but he’s certainly entitled to evaluate him as a running back. The best thing for the Browns would be for Richardson to use the slights as motivation to domin

Jim Brown has been critical of Trent Richardson's abilities since he was drafted, and the Browns running back has responded.
I laugh at the situation. You don’t know me from spic to span. But he’s Jim Brown. He’s done a lot here and I haven’t done anything yet. I have a lot to accomplish and big shoes to fill. When it comes down to it, I have to work and make sure I make him a believer. I haven’t done anything yet. He has his own thoughts. That’s him being him. I have no problem with it...
Jim Brown has never been shy about giving his opinion, and he most certainly hasn't been shy about voicing his reservations with the Browns' 2012 first round pick, Trent Richardson.
Richardson isn't one to back down either, telling ESPN's Jamison Hensley, "He has his own thoughts. That’s him being him,” Richardson said. “I have no problem with it. I just...
Admittedly, most running backs pale in comparison to the legendary Jim Brown, a fact that is assumedly not lost on the man himself. But he has seemingly gone out of his way to criticize Trent Richardson, the Browns' fourth overall pick this year, all throughout the offseason. Richardson, however, has decided to take the high road and just laugh the criticisms off, according to...
Vegas isn’t very impressed with the Browns, and now ESPN’s John Clayton is echoing the sentiments. Clayton doesn’t doubt that Weeden, Richardson and Mitch Schwartz will come in and start. He also recognizes the addition of Brad Childress to the coaching staff. In the end, it isn’t enough for the Browns to make what Mike Holmgren refers to as a “big jump” in the record...
A month ago, I was scorched by a burning river of Browns fans for saying that Greg Little disappointed and Colt McCoy had no weapons. The insults and expletives grunted into cyberspace by these Dawg-crazed nuts barked that the blame for the team’s meager passing game rested squarely and solely on Colt McCoy. He (called “hot dumpster water” by one fan) was the team’s only...
For one day, Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden returned to his baseball roots.
Weeden, a former minor league pitcher in the New York Yankees' organization, threw out the ceremonial first pitch Wednesday night before the Indians faced the Cincinnati Reds in the finale of a three-game series. Sitting in Cleveland's dugout before the game, Weeden said he hadn't thrown...
Previously on Outside the Boxscore, we featured a clip of country singer Brad Paisley singing with Jets quarterback Tim Tebow.
Well, Paisley got another famous quarterback to sing with him in Browns QB Colt McCoy during a concert at the Blossom Music Festival over the weekend and below is the spoils of that performance:
Andrew Stewart earned a rare victory against the NFL pension plan this week as a federal judge ruled officials "abused their discretion" in denying the Cleveland Browns defensive lineman disability benefits.
US District Court Judge William Quarles Jr. ordered Bert Bell/Pete Rozelle NFL Player Retirement Plan -- a benefit run jointly by the NFL and NFL Players Association...
As he strode to the podium to give his speech in front of San Diego crowd I couldn’t help but think about how LaDanian Tomlinson will be remembered.
Of course we know about the 2006 Most Valuable Player award he won. That season all he did was rack up an NFL-record 28 rushing touchdowns that season; as well as an NFL-record for single-season touchdowns at 31.
We know about his...
