Trent breaks Jim Brown's rushing record

26 posts in this topic

For a second consecutive week, former Alabama running back Trent Richardson put himself among elite company in the Cleveland Browns franchise's history.

By clearing 50 yards -- and counting -- today against the Denver Broncos, Richardson passed Hall of Famer Jim Brown for most rushing yards as a rookie. As of the midway point of the third quarter, Richardson had 950 for the season. Brown had 942 in 1957.

Last week, Richardson passed both Eric Metcalf and Brown for most rushing touchdowns as a rookie. Richardson currently has 11, which ranks second in the NFL behind Arian Foster (14).

Richardson has appeared in all 15 games this season, but he's played through multiple injuries, including broken ribs.

Richardson and Brown have been linked ever since the Hall of Famer questioned the Browns for selecting Richardson, whom he labeled as "ordinary," with the third pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. Brown later said that he was only trying to motivate Richardson, whom he's since heaped plenty of praise upon throughout the season.

“That’s my partner, man,” Brown told ESPNCleveland.com in October. “He never took anything I said the wrong way. He’s interested in his family. He’s interested in his team. And he's willing to make sacrifices because really, he's hurt more than you think he is right now."

Cool, but did Brown play in as many games?

The great thing about records is they were made to be broken.

Love the crawfish by Brown on "only trying to motivate him".

Call me a stick in the mud, but I hate seeing these records fall to teams that would get killed if they played the guys that held the old record. Case in point, Calvin Johnson's 4 win Detroit team vs Jerry Rice's Niners.

I don't know, seems like an "ordinary" record that was broken.

Is this a Browns record or NFL record?

Richardson is third among rookies in rushing this year. Barely ahead of RG3. He's nowhere near the NFL record.

I know you're just making sure he knows it's a Browns record, but yeah, I just said the Browns.

Indeed, just had to take a rare opportunity to point out something that Bama had not accomplished. After all, isn't Auburn vs. Alabama what Christmas is all about?

In other news the Saints are actually giving Ingram the ball and he's producing.

Oh and Trent will be a monster, imagine if he didn't have to play through those rib injuries and didn't play...for well the Browns.

Any Jim Brown record is note worthy especially to Cleveland fans. But the true irony is Trent breakin Jim's record since he called him out after Cleveland drafted him.

How "elite" is the Browns franchise history? They have a rich history of bad football, and "almost getting there".

To answer my question, we can probably stop the list after him. Unless you want to include Bernie Kosar

      I can safely say it is impossible for a QB to have a sluggish start vs. Georgia right now

      No one with a family and common sense want trump to destroy this country....

      Something that bothered me was Lester Holt being Hillary's personal fact checker and attempting to correct Trump consistently. He didn't jump on her for lying when she denied saying TPP is the gold standard of trade deals. It is plain as day that she said it, and relatively recently.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MpLQzeCoNnA&app=desktop

      So now we'll move on to LSU and Tennessee. 
    • Flea
      LSU is the only Power 5 team in a state with a tiny population compared to Texas.  LSU and Bama made out like bandits by bringing in A&M.  And to show how autonomous LSU is, wasn't their recent change decided at ULL game?   Houston?  A serious multi-year threat?  With their pack 45,000 seat stadium and limited funds?   They flash every few decades. They won't keep TH that long.   tu?  Can't compete with the SEC brand.  TCU and Baylor?  Self-destruct at least once per 20 years.
