Big man = Big fan
@bradicus18 @BigBlackRichard Oh, and what two teams played in the super bowl last year??? I seem to remember a commitment to running on both those teams. Give me a break buddy.

@bradicus18 @BigBlackRichard I'll talk to you by season end about this trade. We will see if your "advanced metrics" and other fantasy football stats you draw from prove to be correct, or people who just played and know the damned game!
@bradicus18 @BigBlackRichard Youre welcome. best be getting to bed, jr High starts early.
@bradicus18 @BigBlackRichard I have never believed advanced metrics translates to football like it does baseball. but i understand nerds need something to do. How's your fantasy league going? How your World of Warcraft coming along? Did you clean your bedroom before bedtime?
@mshah9008 I love this trade. Wait and see, It will really help the Colts. A lot of former players I've been watching on NFL Network and ESPN agree. I'm willing to come back here at the years end and eat crow if it ends up being a bad move. Question is, will the negative nancy's do the same??

Wow, I thought this was the blog with writers that have a little objectivity. This trade will give the offense balance. Anyone who thinks Richardson won't help Luck's passing game doesn't know football (please, spare me the PFF nonsense). Anyone who thinks Luck's ability to throw the ball won't make Richardson a more productive RB doesn't know football. That's a plain and simple fact. A defense plays coverage and we'll cram the ball down their throat. They cheat up a safety, Luck goes over the top. That's not to mention what play action will do freezing the linebackers for Luck to kill em in the middle of the field. In case anyone isn't noticing, were running the ball for a pretty good average with RB by committee. defensive coordinators now hafta game plan for Richardson....let's give it at least a month or so before we start crying in our Wheeties and grabbing the pitchforks and torches. Oh and Greg, I think Brad has a writing position open for ya (talk about knee jerk and narrow minded reaction...WOW!!!)
I enjoy this blog! Even keeled analysis like this article is refreshing. There are certainly things to improve on, but the main thing that hurt the D was a RB playing QB. Hopefully this game gives us some tape to work on other running QB's we will face this year.

Excellent article. It sums up how I feel to a tee. Now I'm just waiting for Sunday so Luck can make me forget...for awhile.
