Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson was unhappy after Sunday’s lost to the Washington Redskins. While he was extremely unhappy with the loss, Richardson was also unhappy with the fact that he only received 11 carries and seemed to be an afterthought in the Browns offensive game plan.
While talking to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Richardson elaborated on his post game feeling and even addressed Browns fans.
“Today we let ourselves down and we let the whole city of Cleveland down — especially, the season-ticket holders,” Richardson said. “I feel bad for them and I want to say as a man, I just want to come to them and apologize because this was the last home game. We’re supposed to go out with a blast. It was a big ballgame and we didn’t do what we were supposed to do.”
While Richardson was a focal point early with 2 touchdowns, as the Browns fell behind they turned away from the run game.
“I think we’ve just got a game plan, and the game plan we had at the beginning of the game, I think we should’ve stuck with it. But we didn’t stick with the game plan and we tried to go do some other stuff, and the outcome came in a different way,” Richardson said. “It’s shocking. But like I said, the game’s much bigger than me. I’ve got to let coach do what he does.”
There are a lot of changes to be made in Cleveland.
As it sounds like Richardson is unhappy with the play calling, the same coaching staff may not even be there once the season ends.
