The Plain Dealer does an excellent job of covering the Cleveland Browns, and they’re all over former Alabama star Trent Richardson‘s comments after Sunday’s loss to Washington.
Richardson appeared to criticize the play-calling after running the ball only twice in the second half and finishing with only 28 yards on 11 carries. He scored on two of his runs.
“I explained to him that after a game he will be asked questions,” Browns head coach Pat Shurmur told The Plain Dealer. “I asked him what he meant by what he said. I said it’s very important that when we’re all in a state of being disappointed that we lost that we keep our focus on, No. 1, regrouping and getting ready to play the next game.”
This is the Sunday quote from Richardson that began the controversy: “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 do some other stuff, and the outcome came in a different way.”
