In part of the SBNation coverage of the weekend games, Jason Chilton writes with regard to the upcoming Pats game:
I realize that his one carry in Saturday's game resulted about as badly as it could have, but I think he'll get carries and targets in the game against the Pats, and I think he can perform well. In the final three games of the regular season, Richardson was starting to look like a very good #2 (instead of just... well, a big #2).Everyone makes mistakes. Whether those mistakes include fumbling the ball when you're switching arms or throwing three interceptions. I think it would be an overreaction to sit Richardson for the entire game.
