    The Browns should limit TRich to no more than 17 carries a game, agree?

    That means more wear and tear on him and more chance of injury and an early exit from the NFL.

    That's the way NFL running backs work nowadays. You run them into the ground until their rookie contract is up then move on. It's sad for the player, but that's how it is. No sense in wasting what little time you have with a good RB by limiting his carries.

    Carries wise I'd say 18-20 a game but he should get around 25 touches per game when you factor in receptions.

    I'm just thrilled we have a weapon of his caliber on our team now.

    I mean, they still have Jackson, Hardesty, and Ogbonaya who all are decent, if you can keep TRich fresh as much as possible, that'd be nice.

    When thing I do like though is that both Weeden and Richardson seemed excited to be a Brown, especially Weeden, he seemed like a kid getting something for Christmas.

    I think we'll see mostly TRich with a dose of Jackson more than any of the other RB's we have. I just think they will be better feeding off each other than Hardesty or Ogbonaya would be.

    That said, I say TRich sees the ball no more than 15-20 times a game to start the year and 25-30 mid to late season. I'd rather Weeden find his groove early and use the run when weather gets crappy.

    I think another interesting prospect to ponder is what the run / pass balance for the offense will be with a rookie QB and what looks to be a stud of a RB.

    Alright, my friends and I were discussing on who makes the QB/WR good.

    I say it's the QB that makes the WRs good.

    Most argued that it's the WRs that make the QB good, and used Colt as an example as he does not have any prestigious WRs that you could argue that is a top WR. I argued that he threw horrible passes and had bad decision making.

    Of course you can't have OLineman being WRs and expect to be successful, but you know what I mean....

    What are you guys thoughts on this?

    I believe you need both. The QB has to be accurate and have touch, the WR MUST run crisp and solid routes to create separation. The WR runs a ****** route, no one is getting him the ball. QB has lousy accuracy, no WR is catching the ball. You have to have the combination.
