Joshua: Why hasn’t Trent Richardson been more of a factor? Will that change as the season progresses?

J.M.: Richardson has not looked good as a Colt overall, there is no doubt about that. Still, the coaching staff has not seemed to put him in very good situations. His runs are limited to sweeps to the side, or straight up-the-gut rushes. Defenses can sniff those power runs out easy, and with a suspect offensive line, it gives Trent little windows to work with. If they can get creative with this young talent, then there is still hope.
