NFL: Browns OC Turner Thinks RB Richardson Can Be Like Emmitt Smith or LT

Jul 24 2013, 10:57pm CDT | by

Clevelend Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner believes running back Trent Richardson has what it takes to be as great as his former players Emmitt Smith or LaDanian Tomlinson.

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson as the next Emmitt Smith or LaDanian Tomlinson?

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, this is certainly what Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner thinks

"Just watching him and seeing him against us when I came here in October and then watching the tape, yeah, he's that type of runner. Obviously, he's the third pick in the draft. I think he has a lot of great days ahead of him. I always have a problem comparing players because each guy has his own unique style, but I think he's capable of doing great things."

Richardson happens to hail from the same Pensacola, Fla. high school as NFL greats Smith and Tomlinson. 

Turner also believes Richardson will be in for a 300-carry season, in spite of current pass-oriented trends. 

"Obviously, the trend in the league is to not do that, but I think it depends on your team and everyone around it. If that player is your best player, then I think it's probably a good thing to have him in the game and give him the ball. So I would hope Trent would have that many carries. That means he's playing healthy and playing at a pretty high level."

Turner was hired by the Browns to be their offensive coordinator back in January. When he coached the San Diego Chargers in 2012, he already marveled at Richardson's abilities at the running back position. 

The particular game that stood out was Cleveland's 7-6 victory in which Richardson had 122 yards on 24 carries which included a 26-yard run for a touchdown. 

Dan Hanzus of NFL.com says should Richardson get at least 300 carries and match his receptions from 2012 (51) , he would put himself in a position to have 350 touches next season. Such a number would put him in the top five in the NFL. Arian Foster led the way in this department with 391 in 2012.  

Richardson had 267 carries for 950 yards for 11 touchdowns in 15 games last season.

Have the Indianapolis Colts Fixed Trent Richardson and the Run Game?

Sep 18 2014 5:48am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

For the last two seasons, the Indianapolis Colts have preached a desire to run the ball effectively, but with few actual examples.  The run game had its moments. In 2013, the Colts ran all over the San Francisco 49ers, beating them at their own game with a powerful running game and a stout defense. Later that season, the Colts used Donald Brown and the power-run game to close out games against the Tennessee Titans. But make no mistake, the team still revolved around Andrew Luck in 2013, as e ...

What a Mychal Kendricks Injury Means for Philadelphia Eagles Defense

Sep 18 2014 2:30am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Could there be a more costly loss for the Philadelphia Eagles defense than Mychal Kendricks? We may soon find out the hard way. Kendricks exited Monday’s game against the Colts with a heel injury, and Geoff Mosher for CSNPhilly.com reports the third-year interior linebacker is “day to day.” If Kendricks isn’t ready to go for Week 3 against Washington, the options to replace him are unpalatable—likely some combination of Casey Matthews and Emmanuel Acho, maybe with a dash of Marcus Smith. The abs ...

Everybody panic! Alright, let’s not overreact to two weeks of fantasy football. Yes, Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy has underperformed in his first two outings, but it’s not time to give up on him just yet.
