Colts Continue Rolling, Richardson Continues Weak Production

The draft picks owned by the Cleveland Browns take another frustrating loss as the Colts led by Andrew Luck were able to earn a tough victory against the Seattle Seahawks taking them to 4-1.  Luck and the Colts passing game were able to make some huge plays to power them to the win, their third in a row.

Trent Richardson had his longest run of the year at 16 yards, but that only brought his average for the day up to 3.1 yards per carry.  Overall, Richardson carried the ball 18 times for 56 yards and did not catch a pass.  The Colts keep on winning, which was the point of adding Richardson, but the addition of Richardson has done little to help them in winning games.  The team is saying all of the right things when it comes to Richardson and continue to say they love him and think he will be a big part of their team, but three games in, he has been extremely ordinary.  With that said, if they can get him rolling while they are continue this winning streak, they become a far more dangerous team.  If not, they are going to be wishing they had that draft pick back in May when they are trying to put the finishing touches on a Super Bowl team.

On the other hand, this past week, Willis McGahee had his most productive day on the ground with 26 carries for 72 yards and a touchdown with a 16 yard run as his long, which is also pretty mediocre at 2.8 yards per carry.  Still, when considering that mediocre production comes with a first round pick, regardless of where it is in the first round, while the Browns are still just as competitive, is not a bad situation in the least.
