If you needed some excitement for this Sunday’s Cincinnati Bengals vs Cleveland Browns game, and trust us you do, look no further. It seems as though Rey Maualuga and Trent Richardson are trying to turn the Bengals-Browns rivalry into one similar to the Steelers-Ravens, just without all of the winning.

Sunday’s game marks Maualuga’s first up-close look at Browns rookie running back Trent Richardson, a player he doesn’t sound overly impressed with.

“He can run you over, and you can miss a tackle, at the same time, from what we’ve seen he didn’t do nothing spectacular,” Maualuga told, via The Plain Dealer. “From running screens, missing passes, trying to find a hole when he’s running the ball. He just didn’t do anything spectacular from what I’ve seen. I’m pretty sure he’s going to want to get after it once he plays us.”

Browns coach Pat Shurmur blew off the remarks Thursday, but Richardson did not, admitting he’s thought more than once about the critique.

“Most definitely,” Richardson told the newspaper. “When somebody wants to talk mess, I mean, hey, that’s them. I let my game speak for itself, so if they want to see how mad I am, or how upset they got me about the comment, you’ll see Sunday.”

  • payton is off the hook. SUPER BOWL? great quaterback.

  • payton, great quaterback, SUPERBOWL? YEA!

  • Brick-hand Sanders from the Steelers? Is Manning a receivers coach now? Manning was on his game. Weren’t the Chargers without their starting corners? Still played great. Broncos defense stuffing the Chargers running game was impressive. That 30 yarder floated in there nice. Is it me or does Peyton’s passes look like a 30 yard bomb? That crap won’t work in the playoffs when Ravens defenders are used to practicing against Flacco who throws 70-yarders.
