Today marks the one-year anniversary of what could be remembered as one of the most lopsided trades in NFL history.
Things haven't worked out for Richardson or the Colts over the past 365 days. As colleague Henry Hodgson pointed out on Twitter, Richardson has gained 558 yards on 184 rushes with Indy, just three yards per carry on average. In that same span, Colts running backs not named Trent Richardson have rushed for 1,149 yards on 225 carries, a 5.1 average.
Richardson hasn't been great through two weeks. On Monday night, he had some success running up the middle -- including a trio of 10-yard runs -- but he fumbled twice and struggled whenever Pep Hamilton asked (and this happened too often) for Richardson to get to the edge. One Twitter follower observed that T-Rich "rolls to the outside like a deformed Slinky." Hamilton's opinion that Richardson had one of his better games as a Colt acted as quite the accidental indictment.
