Blogger Blitz: Richardson's physical style

Browns running back Trent Richardson was impressive in the team's first full contact practice a couple of days ago.
"Oh, yeah, I really get to do what I do best [in pads]," Richardson told Cleveland reporters. "I get to bounce off guys, get to try to run guys over, break tackles or whatever. I think when I get in full pads, it's a whole 'nother me. Not to be cocky or nothing, that's just my confidence in my game, and that's just what I'm blessed with."
Richardson's physical running style will be tested in going against three AFC North defenses that ranked in the top 10 against the run: the Ravens (No. 2), Steelers (No. 8 ) and Bengals (No. 10).
In the Blogger Blitz video, I explain the challenges for Richardson this season and why he still has a chance for success.
