I'm answering a big ol' NO to this question. I've been heavily drinking the Redskins Kool-Aid of late and I'm such a fan of our homegrown talent. The more guys in our starting lineup that we've drafted ourselves the better. I want the Skins to be the team that all the other teams in the league feed off the dregs of our team and sign the crappy guys we cut in hopes that they've just been a victim of displacement on a very talent-heavy Redskins roster. So no, they can keep Trent, and we can be running down every teams throats with FroMo
T Rich may be more talented but Alfy Mo is OUR guy and it's always special when you draft a stud in the 6th round.

M46 is a ground and pound back. If we need that first down, he's going to get it. We still need a speed back to compliment him though. So no I wouldnt trade them, but I would add somebody like TR to supplement M46. Or just wait until helu gets better.
Glad Hell No was up there because a plain no wouldnt do my answer justice.
Trent has three kids already at 21 years old. Ill keep Alfred for character concerns.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!! I love Alfred and his Batmobile!!!
I do think Morris is a great player in our scheme and the only things missing is his break away speed and his pass catching. However Trent is an complete back with major upside and has the ability to break away and go beast in the pass game. That being said I would tend to agree with many on the board that when you weigh in what the cost would be to retain Trent and the fact that Morris is elite under our system running the ball the difference is not that great. However straight up talent, I would have to go Trent.
Having kids = character concerns
Nice way of skirting around it.

If you think RG3 is good now, imagine him with an elite RB that had to get a lot of attention.
I've watched TR and see a RB who is stronger and faster than Morris, and he just happens to be the focal point of every defense that plays the Browns. I think he's an elite talent and I'd take him over any RB not named AP.
We have our good, young, cheap RB, so we're set for now. However, as a pure talent trade, I'd do it 100 times out of 100. It's not even close.
Essentially Trent Richardson is a stronger and much faster Alfred Morris that is a factor in the passing game. If you gave Trent Richardson numbers in the hashes like Alfred Morris gets off the zone read he'd reap DBs souls. I'm not sure about his vision as so I don't know how he well he would be in a zone running game but like others have said pure talent you make that trade. He is the most athletically gifted RB in the league outside of Peterson
If Morris keeps up a little bit over 100 yards in his next game he could break our single season rushing yards record that Portis set in 2005, I read somewhere.
Trent is good, but in college I always saw a running back that would get maybe 3 or 4 yards a pop all game and then would have one or two huge mindblowing highlight runs where he makes defenders look like pop warner players. If you watch him he is very indecisive on where he will run and tends to dance in the backfield a lot, which is a huge cardinal sin in our offense and in Mike Shanahan's mind. Morris has pretty much outperformed Richardson this year, and I thought Trent was a bit of an overrated back coming out of college, he is kind of a highlight reel player if you know what I mean. Overrated doesn't mean he is a bad player, because Trent is a good player.
