    Nobody is trading for Miles Austin and his current contract. Why would some team acquire him only to watch him go 70% and then re-injure himself again? If we were to cut him for whatever reason, I'm sure teams would then be lining up to sign him at a much lower number.

    Harris doesn't have the speed, height, or ability to separate to play alot of snaps on the outside. Sure, maybe for a couple of plays, but for 30 snaps out there he would be a disaster. And of course we know Beasley can't play out there. Playing on the outside is a very difficult position, its why TWill's development is so great and why some WRs take 3 years to develop.

    We need to realize the depth we have at the position is a strength that we shouldn't be willing to just give up cause we have short term issues elsewhere.

    Either that or he pulls a hamstring.

    I can't agree here. You put Richardson in this offense and you have an every down back that can catch the ball and be there for you all season long. It also allows you to move Murray if that is what you want to do. Richardson put up 1317 total yards and 12 TDs in Cleveland. What do you think he could do in an offense with Romo?

    Think if you had a FO that gave up significant picks for one player and that player created no impact. In Dallas we hold out hope for a few years. In Indy there is some speculation that some in the FO are calling the Richardson trade failure and may move on in the off season.

    Once he gets open, he slows down so Romo doesn't throw him the ball. Not sure if it's his injury or he's got an attitude.

    Based on what? Every time he's been in at either position, all he's done is produce.

    Cleveland had zero QB play and a fantastic OL last year. THey had little choice but to try to ram the ball, IMO. Richardson has seemed very pedestrian and just looks a step slow to me. He definitely doesn't strike me as a zone run type of back, which is what we would need.

    I posted it elsewhere, I don't think Austin is a natural WR.

    I notice that too, but I never want to believe my eyes when I see it.

    Just something about him that says "Not that competitive" to me.

    Seen this the past couple of years. I'm glad I'm not totally crazy.

    I watched Cleveland last year and they ran against a lot of 8 and 9 in the box. I don't think the problem is Richardson's speed. He's a 4.42 guy with excellent lateral quickness numbers.

    I admittedly did not watch a ton of Cleveland ball, but I can definitely agree that they had a lot in the box. I still maintain that their line was outstanding last year (no idea about this year).

    I do not watch much of Indy, are they a ZBS or MBS? I have a feeling Richardson needs a glaring hole to run through I do not think our line would do him any favors.

    Well, Bama is a Zone Blocking Scheme Offense so Richardson does fit that scheme. That's part of the problem with Indy I think. Bruce Ariens runs a Man/Power scheme.

    Your right. He used to be in Indy, my bad. However, I think that they still run the same scheme. Power Man.

    He doesn't seem to be able to do very much in an offense with Luck. Granted he hasn't had a whole lot of time to learn the offense but he certainly has the threat of the passing game in Indy and still is averaging less than 4 yards per carry. The Browns may have been on to something here.

    They do still run a power running system with Pep Hamilton. Andrew Luck's former offensive coordinator at Stanford.
