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.

Nov 4 2014 12:47am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

Do Andrew Luck and his wide receivers really have to hog all of the fantasy points? Although the Indianapolis Colts dropped 40 points on the New York Giants, the trio of Ahmad Bradshaw, Trent Richardson and Daniel Herron failed to find the end zone. Combined, they rushed for 93 yards on 22 carries. You can see their individual stats below. Looking ahead, Bradshaw is the only Colts running back worth starting on a consistent basis.

Nov 2 2014 7:55am CST | Source: SBNation

Week 9 ends with two teams coming off losses. Who will get back to the good? Things were looking up for the New York Giants a few weeks ago, when they were 3-2 and in the thick of things in the NFC East. Since then, they've lost two games and had a bye, and watched the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles distance themselves.

Halloween is a pretty amazing holiday, but certain behaviors would just be weird at a different time in the year. Can you imagine asking a random stranger for candy in the middle of the summer?

The point is, some activities are best done ...
