Colts' Trent Richardson said he was trying to do too much


The Indianapolis Colts made a big mid-season trade to bring in running back Trent Richardson, but thrown into a new offense Richardson didn’t have the type of season he or the Colts had hoped for. After reviewing tape of the 2013 season, Richardson came to the conclusion that he was trying to due too much.

“You catch yourself trying to hit the home run when you haven’t had the big runs yet,” Richardson said, via the Indianapolis Star.

“It’s human. But you can’t hit the home run. You have to set up your runs. That’s one thing, (because of) not having as much success as I’ve always had, you catch yourself saying, ‘I gotta score, I gotta score.’ ”

Richardson continued: “When I (missed) the cuts and the holes, I said, ‘Dang, how the heck did I miss that?’ ‘How in the world did I miss that?’ That’s second nature. You never miss a cut. You get as much yards as you can get at every opportunity.”
