Trent Richardson is not concerned with Jim Brown’s comments about him

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Jim Brown has made no bones about how “ordinary” he thinks Trent Richardson is. In fact, he’s so adamant that Richardson is ordinary that he took the time to expound on his earlier comments just in case you didn’t believe him.

Up until now, Trent Richardson has been silent about the Hall of Famer’s criticism of him. But he broke his silence earlier this month to ESPN.com about it and basically said that Brown’s comments really don’t concern him.

“He has his own thoughts. That’s him being him,” Richardson said. “I have no problem with it. I just wish the best of luck for him whatever he’s doing in life.”

“I laugh at the situation,” Richardson said. “You don’t know me from spic to span. But he’s Jim Brown. He’s done a lot here and I haven’t done anything yet. I have a lot to accomplish and big shoes to fill. When it comes down to it, I have to work and make sure I make him a believer. I haven’t done anything yet.”

Probably the best thing Richardson could say. He hasn’t done anything yet, so he needs to focus on things he can control. One of which is how he plays on the field. And if he plays like the Browns think he will, Jim Brown will be on the bandwagon soon enough.

  1. Jim Brown is a bitter old man! That is coming from a 57 year old man that thought he was God(next to Walter Payton)!

    • jim brown is 75,not 57,get your facts straight.no running back has ever come close to what jim brown did on the field.

      • You are an idiot. Dave is saying the he (Dave) is 57 and he grew up thinking Jim Brown was God. Learn how to read.

        • I agree with Ricky, kirk is a fucking retard and should learn how to read before calling someone out.

          • BigSlim says:

            I agree with what Kenny says about what Ricky says about kirk. I also agree with what Kenny said about kirk. I also agree with what Dave says about Jim Brown. The only thing I don’t agree with is what Jim Brown said about Trent. Richardson will be a beast in the NFL when he leaves the Browns; they suck.

    • First Jim Brown is 76 years old, so if you are going to take shots at him get it right.
      Secondly when he retired he was the ALL-TIME NFL RUSHER after only 9 seasons.
      Also he hsa nothing to be bitter about. He has done it all Movies, the NFL, all the way to his community activites to halt LA GANG VIOLENCE with his award winning Yes I Can Program. He is a icon in the LA Community.
      Dont talk about stuff you dont know. Also by many football experts Jim Brown is still considered the Greatest Football Player of all time!!!

      • While not exactly grammatically correct, Hoopdujoir makes good points, and yes Jim Brown was/is awesome. No one dominated the football field the way he did.

      • Truth Worthy says:

        Jim brown played in an era where nfl teams only allowed a few african american players on their teams. Had he played in a later era when the nfl wasn’t as segregated he would not have put up the numbers he did.
        I’m not saying he wouldn’t have been great, just that he wouldn’t have been as prolific.

    • I had the privelege of watchin Jim Brown at Kezar Stadium back in the early sixties. The game started like most games but then morphed quickly into the Browns QB handing the ball to #32 over and over and over again. Each time the Public Announcer wuld say “Brown …pickup of eight…..Brwn..pickup of 12……Brown..pickup of 10 etc.etc.etc
      Now everybody that sw this game knew the play was gonna be a hand off to Jim Brown….they tried eight in the box….nine in the box…to no avail. All day long he ran whenever and where ever he wanted to. He was the baddest dude I have ever seen at running back. He was unstoppable and he finally quit football because he was bored.
      So if you really don’t think that Jimmy Brown was hands down the greatest back ever….sorry…you would be mistaken!

  2. Trent Richardson: will take the league by storm-

  3. Jim brown is acting like an ole uncle Tom. Black killing Blacks…………..

    • Truth Worthy says:

      “Jim brown is acting like an ole uncle Tom. Black killing Blacks.”
      I guess you have never heard about the years that brown has put into trying to end gang violence.
      It’s 2012 we’ve come a long way as a people and it’s not coonist if we criticize our own people anymore. You need to wake up, grow up, learn the facts before you go around name calling.

  4. Compass90 says:

    Trent Richardson is right. He hasn’t even had a chance to play in his first NFL game. Shouldn’t we wait to see him play, before we start to criticize him. Give the yound man a chance to show he fans what he can do.

    • If I remember correctly Jim Brown thought Franco Harris was a bum. And he hasn’t thought too much of any other running backs since himself.

      • @sHANE Wrong again. Jim Brown loved Walter Payton and Barry Sanders he thought Frano was soft because he always ran out of bounds. Check the tape, Cause we know you never saw JimBrown nor Franco Harris play.

  6. MOOSEMAN says:

    I ALSO GREW UP THINKING JIM BROWN WAS THE GREATEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD. AS A KID, I WATCHED HIM DRAG DEFENDERS FOR ADDITIONAL YARDS ON MOST OF HIS CARRIES OR RUN OVER OPPOSING PLAYERS. WHAT PEOPLE FAIL TO MENTION IS THAT JIM BROWN WAS A VERY BIG MAN AND A VERY BIG RUNNING BACK. WHEN HE PLAYED MOST DEFENSIVE LINEMAN WERE ONLY AROUND 250 POUNDS. LINEBACKERS WERE IN THE 220 POUND RANGE. WITH A HEAD OF STEAM, WHY WOULDN’T HE DRAG THESE DEFENDERS FOR ADDITIONAL YARDS. I’M NOT SAYING JIM BROWN WAS NOT A GREAT RUNNING BACK. I AM JUST SAYING I APPRECIATE MORE A 190 POUND BACK LIKE BARRY SANDERS ACCOMPLISHING WHAT HE DID AGAINST DEFENDERS 100 OR MORE POUNDS THAN HIM.

    • Gary D Linger says:

      Dude we can get your point without you typing in all upper caps or if you will screaming. If anything all the all upper cap type of writing does is sees to it that few if any read or will read your post. It is just proper netiquette not to post in such a manor. Not trying to be mean just trying to help you out.

  7. But, remember those lighter de’s and lb’s were targeting and beating and kicking him when he was finally tackeled.i think jim is jealous and feeling that trent may be the guy in the fans hearts when it is all said and done.He never missed a game or a down due to injury.

  8. Esteban says:

    Jim Brown always had a huge ego. That was part of what made him great. But in the past decade or two he has sadly become a curmudgeon in a very negative sense. Please do not doubt his greatness. He dominated in his era like nobody else. Sure he was big…that’s what made him freakishly great. He was big, fast, agile, and relentless. He was one of the fastest players on the Browns–that included Bobby Mitchell who was a phenomenal wide-out. Mitchell would barely beat Brown in sprints, but Brown would get out faster for the first 20 yards or so. Check out Brown’s stats and be sure to note how many games he played per season. Being a big running back does not guarantee stardom–ask Brandon Jacobs.

  9. Joel McClurg says:

    Jim Brown isn’t a bitter old man; also, I went back and re-read the comment and it isn’t at all clear who he’s talking about. Jim Brown is the greatest running back to ever play the game; remember, Brown played 12 game seasons and only played like 9 years. All the others who have passed him in yardage mostly played 16 game seasons and it took a lot more than 9 seasons of 16 games to pass Brown. Sorry fellows, but read em and weep!

  10. Jimmy Mack says:

    I do think Jim Brown was one of the greatest backs to carry the football. But like many of the greats it is hard to see things like their records surpassed or their greatness become a thing of the past. He needs to remember that the great things he accomplished in his day were of that error and that eventually new players come along and accomplish new and great things for this error.

  11. tell jim he still owes agassi 10 grand for the beatdown on the courts when andre was 8 years old

  12. Jim Brown accomlished a lot during his career, but how can anyone respect a man who beats his women? The record shows he was a beast on and off the field and while he has a right to say whatever he pleases, those who are listen must be reminded how weak and insecure a man he really is.

  13. if these comments are coming from Browns fans, then you guys are pathetic.
    The orgainzation completed a very solid draft with a need at RB, and yet thats not good enough. You back up Jim Browns comments about your 1st round pick, who hasnt payed yet. Thats showing some nice support to the guys you drfated. Maybe the orgainzation should turn it all over to Jim Brown with full drfat control – - so he can make some positive comments about the future of the guys he selects that will help the team win.
    Richardson deserves to play for a team, and orgainzation and fans that welcome him with great hope and support in that he makes a great contribution to the team. the Browns dont deserve him. You should drafted a punter in every round to keep Jim Brown happy and without negative comments.
    You crush your own guy and allow Jim Brown to run the show – great model.

  14. Brown was unique in his day and age, and because he was unique he was able to accomplish more than the average back. In todays game he would be ordinary. His smash mouth type of play that worked back then would get him destroyed today. It’s only to bad we cant see him against the bigger faster defenses that suit up now. He wont be such and arrogant prick then.

  15. Hey Jim Brown, how’s your boy Maurice Clarett doing these days!

  16. i’m 73 yrs old and recall jim being a great runner.in those days men were smaller than now.nothing against jim but he would have a tough time with guys like ray lewis and the 300 pounders of today…….larry powell,,,,,,,still jim was great.

  17. Jim Brown is a pussy. He only talks shit now that he is too old for anybody to whup his gimpy ass. The only butt he can kick now is his women that he is known to slap around. And he is a shitty actor. Chump.

  18. he is worried Trent will break his records. Brown never ran roughshod over the Lions
