Browns RB Trent Richardson Takes The Blame For Loss To Cowboys
Browns running back Trent Richardson took the blame for Sunday's 23-20 overtime loss in Dallas on them, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Specifically, he pinned it on his failure to score from the 1 in the fourth quarter, when he tried to go up and over the line instead of hitting a hole. It wasn't the play he was looking for there, but he nevertheless took the rap.
"I can't take it back now, but it happens," the rookie running back said. "I didn't see what I thought I saw. I tried to jump over the pile and I didn't score. I guess you can put the game on me. I guess I'm the reason why we lost."
"I'm really saying it," he said. "You can put the game on me. I'm a man. I'm going to man up to my mistakes and my faults. No man is scared away of his own faults or decision-making. I made my decision and I messed up. That happens when you make decisions right on the run. It just happens."
Richardson said he wanted the ball with the game on the line, but "the play I wanted, we didn't call. Like I say, I'm with coach with whatever he calls."
Richardson wouldn't say what play he was hoping to run.
"I'm going to leave that alone. Coach made his decision and I agree with everything called."
