New GM did not like the Richardson pick and something tells me Weeden will be next to get traded. New GM's want to put their stamp on a team and I think Chudzinski will be looking to make the Browns his Browns.

He already has 2-1st round picks for April's draft.

This trade could be a real winner for Indy.

It could be,that the new owner is getting rid od alot of peeps,take all the losses,and get higher picks next year.

probably starting with a new QB.

They have an obligation to their fan base and season ticket holders.

This is not the way to do it...trades in the middle of the season are seldom done in the NFL, as a matter of fact, trades do not happen often period. If I was in their fan base Michael Lombardi would have to go, this is incompetence...Now if they would have got two or three #1's...OK

But the pick you are going to get will be from 15 to 26, and will not be a starter.

With the Browns abysmal track record this isn't the right time to make a move like this. I'm sure most Browns fans are not happy campers right now.

Excellent move by Indy. Irsay may Tweet some off the wall things but he is an excellent owner and is all about winning now. Since the 2002 Season the Colts have won at least 10 games every season except 2011 and have made the Playoffs + have their SB win(2006). He let Peyton go knowing Luck would be there for the next 15 years and that took balls because Peyton still has game but you have to rebuild when you haven't won a SB in a few years and see a great chance to do so. Trent will love playing in Indy with a QB like Luck. Weeden just isn't that good. The O.Line still needs an upgrade or 2 and that really cant happen until the Draft. The only thing so far in this rebuild phase which started in 2012 that I have been disappointed in now is drafting or acquiring better O.Lineman. I am fine with the Coaching Staff. The Defense can use a Corner as well that can shut down most WR's, Colts Pass Defense isn't that good. I think with TY, Wayne, and our TE's Luck does have some weapons at least to throw too. Trent can block pretty well so that should help with protection as well. Revis isn't happy in Tampa, wish we had him :)

There are still fans in Baltimore that consider Irsay nothing but a POS.

Guess that happens when you rape a city of their identity. Ofcourse his other extra carriculars probably don't help.

Don't mean sh&t if you don't draft properly. Just ask Jerry Jones.

This headline from today's Bleacher Report sums it up pretty good - Trent Richardson Trade: It's the Same Old Pathethic Cleveland Browns.

The Cowboys or Browns?

I am not convinced a true running game will ever exist in the NFL ever again.. unless you count pryor, from the Raiders! lol

Rumor is the Cowboys have one, but that's just rumor and cannot be verified. lol

I have yet to see a true running game, Baltimore comes close and minni with AP,

I just read that Richardson found out about the trade on the radio. Wow..those Browns are quite a classy organization.

Forget all other aspects of this conversation.

Are you trying to say a 15 to 26 first round pick are not starters in the NFL?

because if you are saying that you don't follow the NFL.
