Ozzie Newsome: Richardson May Not Even Get to Ray Lewis

What I will tell you is we’ve got a freshman at Alabama that’ll probably make us forget about Trent Richardson already. They’re that good down in Tuscaloosa right now. Trent’s a physical player. So is Ray [Lewis]. They asked [Ravens top draft choice] Courtney Upshaw about playing against Trent, and he said, ‘I think I can get him on the ground.’ That’s what’s fun … When we come to town, (Richardson) may not get to Ray because he’s got to get to [Haloti] Ngata and [Terence] Cody first. We’ll see.

    sounds like there scared already

    nagata has bad knees,cody is slow,and richardson benches more then upshaw if not all of them ,so reed is retiring and grampa lewis should of too.  hillis ran all over the ravens and richardson sees and hits thw wholes faster…..besides the raves rb rice in which they haven’t even signed yet…there nothing,and not only we beat the super bowl chams every year…..giants,stealers,saints,packers but that one we didnt play them during they year but not our fault but still beat them during the pre season,now the giants are on our schedule so we will beat them and this year we will sweep the ravens and who knows with good play it can keep coming and improving…

    not hating on ozzie,once a dawg always a dawg.  doesn’t mean im rooting for bultibums and doesn’t mean that they will stop rb trent richardson!

  • Holly Wellman

    agreed…….thomas lt great,c alex mack great…………every great back needs blockers and not just two.  the only great back who did it with a terrible o-line was rb barry sanders,but ifhe had a line his numbers would of been untouchable.     we need at least two great o-lineman in here if not three…..   passed up one at 22 in decastro and could of traded up for weeden, stayed and took og cody glenn,og brandon brooks or shwartz

  • Holly Wellman

    they might be cool but pinkston and lauvoa need up graded

  • Holly Wellman

    we should of traded two to three first round picks for ozzie along time ago….after all they where all busts any how… then we would of had better players today…but atleast they found gm hecks who can draft great players and not busts

    I live in b’ham and I agree Courtney doesn’t sound confident, and its probably because he faced him in practice and struggled to tackle trent many times already! Upshaw knows the real deal, Book it! Roll damn Tide!

  • The Fan

    Trent carries a championship presence which will intoxicate then Browns lockeroom! He has two national championship rings and a large portion of the credit for both belong to Trent (between the tackles) Richardson. He is the real deal, Book IT!!!
