Found October 06, 2012 on Cleveland Sports 360:
Head Coach Pat Shurmur has two guy that could add to the Cleveland Browns backfield, both Montario Hardesty and Brandon Jackson have experience in the NFL and could contribute to the Browns running or receiving game. Why they are not involved is anyone’s guess. Shurmur had high praises for both guys coming out of training camp. We saw Hardesty have some good runs in the preseason and he did fumble the ball a couple of times, still that is not enough to hold him out of all 4 games the Browns have played. Even with Richardson in the Browns backfield they could at least put Hardesty in the game with him as a decoy if nothing else. I’ll bet he could even provide some key block to help T-Rich open some holes. Then we see Brandon Jackson’s talents being wasted. Jackson was only used in the Browns season opener. He caught 2 balls and has a 10 yard per catch average. Why would you not use a guy who can average 10 yards per catch out of the back-field? Shurmur must like losing football games...
