either way its just a dumb move considering most RB's are much more dependent on their Olines than some being so much better than the rest...unless its AP. even if they're injured or injury prone Ballard wasn't bad, Bradshaw is above average, and even their 3rd string had his moments as well, i forget his name.


Lucks receivers are putting up nice numbers look at Reggie Wayne receiving numbers Lucks stats are better in his first 4 games this year then last year. His pass yards is down but his completion% and QB rating is up also his int's are down. This new offensive will help him and the colts moving forward.

So when a team runs the ball, they're marginalizing their QB?

How did a good run game do for the 2001 Pats? Where they threw the ball almost as much as they ran it?

The 2003 Pats, same thing....they has 60 more pass plays than run plays.

2004 Pats? They ran the ball MORE than they passed it.

2005 Steelers? Ran the ball almost 200 more times than pass.

2007 Giants? 4th in rushing yards

2008 Steelers? passed the ball 40 more times than rushing

2009 Saints? 6th in rushing

2012 Ravens were 11th in rushing yards


We're 4th in rushing yards and are on pace to throw more than 40 times than running.

Balance is something all teams strive for. If Luck is a game manager currently, then you better be the first one to say Brady was a game manager for his superbowls.

we'll see i guess. theres a reason why Wayne's projections have dropped a lot for this year with the new coach and offensive philosophy tho.

you need to factor in great teams that are up a lot will have a lot of running stats. it doesn't take away from the fact that teams generally focus on one or the other. like the Pats were a pass focused team, even if they ran the clock out running often. same with the Faulk Rams, they might've had good running stats but it was obvious they were a pass focused team.

i just don't think 'power running' philosophy speaks for balance with passing so much. but like i said we'll see....

Trich is not a special running back. He's decent. Well rounded (can catch, pick up blitzes) Great on short yardage but not worth a 1st AT ALL. Good move by Cleveland. BTW Unless you're drafting an Adrian Peterson caliber prospect, you should never pick a RB in the top 5.

The Browns D is where they are because of Lombardi and Banner bringing in Kruger and Bryant and drafting Mingo who looks to be a stud. Much more impressive rookie than T-rich ever was. L+B also brought in Hoyer who actually makes the brown's offense look like an offense.

TBH, I had no idea he was being a scumbag. I just assumed he was largely responsible for the rebuilding they've done.

And yea Trich and Weeden were horrible picks.

Don't give up a 1st Round pick for a RB if your O-Line cannot run block at all?

Whether it's Trent's fault of the O-Line's fault, it's still been a bad trade for the Colt's so far because Trent hasn't produced at all for them.

Well, he has produced. Trent has been very good in pass protection the last two games. That's a pretty huge part of playing the position, you see guys not play many snaps even though they're extremely talented because they can't block.

We are capable of run blocking, if I recorded Donald Browns runs the last couple games you'd see the sea parting on half of the carries. When Bradshaw started for us vs. the 49ers they did a solid job giving Bradshaw enough room to showcase his ability.

This thread has turned into Carbine's weekly excuses for T-Rich's 3ypc game.

You all don't know football. I have recorded all his runs on my shitty phone and i have concluded based on the way Trent holds the ball and pass protects he will be a very good back. You will all eat your words!

Maybe Trent will live up to his #3 pick potential in the future, but he's looked like crap this year.

That's not it at all.

I simply show the film, you can come to whatever conclusion you want to from it instead of looking at a box score and judging a player from that.

Video looks like a black and white video when they played football without face masks.

Buy a new f*cking phone. Dont even dare talk to me about money. Bet on a football game as you've done in your topic here. Win money. Buy new phone.

I cant even watch this video because its damaging to someones eyes.

The last time I saw an image quality of this nature was when I was a little kid watching TV thru a fish bowl. My mom eventually smacked me and I never did that again.
