Sunday is filled with great games. I think it's some record for games played with teams that have winning records

Trent Richardson not demoted by Cleveland Browns

By Gregg Rosenthal
Around The League editor
Published: Dec. 14, 2012 at 12:45 p.m. Updated: Dec. 14, 2012 at 01:21 p.m.

The headline in Friday's Canton Repository caught me off guard: "Childress says no plans to demote Richardson."

Wait, what?

It's remarkable this even is a conversation. The Cleveland Browns took Richardson with the No. 3 overall pick in the draft. They traded up for him! His backup is ... Montario Hardesty. Yet it's not that crazy a suggestion when you look at the numbers.

Richardson is averaging 24 carries per game during the past month, without a 100-yard game. He hasn't averaged more than 3.6 yards per carry in any of those games and was held to just 42 yards last week. For perspective, New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw has the same number of yards as Richardson this season in 51 fewer attempts.

I decided to look into some of the records/milestones that players might reach with 2 games left in the regular season:

Records/Milestones:

Passing attempts: Drew Bledsoe owns the single season record of 691, set in 1994. Matt Stafford has 629 attempts, with 2 games left to play. 63 pass attempts in the next 2 games will give Stafford the record, which looks very attainable.

Steven Jackson went over 10,000 career rushing yards last week. Jackson has 909 yards rushing in the season and only needs 91 yards to notch his 8th straight season of rushing for 1,000+ yards.

Adrian Peterson has 1,812 yards rushing on the season and only needs 188 yards in the last 2 games (94 yards per game) to hit the 2,000 yard mark and 294 yards (147 yards per game) to pass Eric Dickerson's single season rushing record of 2,105 yards set in 1984.

Brandon Marshall (107) and Calvin Johnson (106) have a chance to finish the season with 2nd most receptions in a single season. They won't reach Marvin Harrison's all time record of 143 receptions, set in 2002, but they could reach the 2nd spot, of 123 receptions, set by Herman Moore in 1995 and Wes Welker in 2009.

Speaking of Wes Welker, he has 100 receptions on the season, his 5th season of 100+ receptions, which is a new NFL record.

Calvin Johnson has 1,667 receiving yards on the season and has let it be known that his gunning for Jerry Rice's single season yardage mark of 1,848 yards, set in 1995. C.J. needs 182 yards in the last 2 games (91 yards per game) to break that record. C.J. has also said he is aiming to be the 1st receiver to crack the 2,000 yard mark. C.J. needs 333 yards in the next 2 games (166.5 yards per game) to reach the 2,000 yard club. With the Lions out of playoff contention, and having a piss poor season, look for them to try hard to get Calvin Johnson those 2 milestones.

This isn't really a milestone, but the season Tony Gonzalez has should be noted. Dude is 36 years old and claims this is his last season. Tony G. has 87 receptions for 880 yards and 8 TDs this season....so he'll probably end up with over 100 receptions and 1,000+ yards on the season. His 1,236 career receptions for 14,218 yards and 103 career TDs are mind boggling. That makes him the 2nd all time leader in receptions, 7th all time in receiving yards, and 6th in receiving TDs. I know we crack on him because he doesn't have a playoff win, while Shannon Sharpe has 3 Super Bowl rings, but his career numbers, and production at the age of 36 years old should be recognized. I think Tony G. would be stupid not to return for a 17th season. He is relatively healthy and will have the rest of his life to do something else....may as well play another year if you're still capable of performing at a high level and enjoy it.

On a Denver related note, it would be nice to see Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker both end up with 1,000+ receiving yard seasons with 10+ TDs. Denver has never had 2 receivers notch 1,000+ yards receiving and 10+ TDs in the same season. DMT has 78 receptions for 1,210 yards and 8 TDs. Eric Decker has 72 receptions for 923 yards and 9 TDs.

Peyton Manning is 347/511 (67.9%) for 4,016 yard and 31 TDs and 10 INTs.

The single season passing marks for the Denver Broncos are: completions (384 Jay Cutler in 2008), attempts (616 Jay Cutler in 2008), completion percentage (67.9% by Peyton Manning in 2012 with Brian Griese at 66.7% in 2002), 4,526 yards (Jay Cutler in 2008), and 31 TDs (31 TDs Peyton Manning in 2012). I look for Peyton Manning to break all of them this season, except the passing attempts mark, which is fine, as it means Denver starting running the ball well down the stretch run.

All purpose yards: Darren Sproles set the record with 2,696 all purpose yards in 2011. Randall Cobb has 2,241 all purpose yards with2 games left to play.

The single season sack mark of 22.5 was set by Michael Strahan in 2001. 3 players have a chance to reach that mark. J.J. Watt and Aldon Smith each have 19.5 sacks with 2 games to play. Von Miller has 16.0 sacks. Von Miller probably won't get there, but I'd love to see him reach the 20 sack mark.

The punting yards record in a season could fall as well. The record of 4,968 yards was set by Andy Lee in 2007. Dave Zastudil of Arizona has 4,546 punting yards with 2 games to play.

The forced fumbles in a season mark could be topped. Keep in mind, the record hasn't been closely tracked until the last 12 or so seasons, so I'm sure one of the old timers has topped this mark. Osi Umenyiora holds the record of 10 forced fumbles in 2010, but Charles Tillman has 10 forced fumbles this season to tie the record, with 2 games left to play.

6 receptions for 117 yards for Calvin Johnson in the first half of tonight's game.

C.J. is going to get Jerry Rice's record....2,000 yards will be the target.

If Calvin Johnson gets 214 yards receiving next week (he had 225 yards this week), he would end up with 2,106 yards receiving, which would best Eric Dickerson's single season rushing record of 2,105, set in 1984.

Of course, Adrian Peterson is going to be gunning for that record as well.

Adrian Peterson had 25 carries for 86 yards today.

That gives him 1,898 yards on the season.

102 yards away from 2,000 yards, 208 yards away from breaking Eric Dickerson's record of 2,105 yards.

Minnesota plays Green Bay next week.

That could be questionable if he gets his 2K. Greenbay is looking pretty damned good right now.

But by then MIN has nothing to lose other than push him to do so.

Peyton Manning is 377/554 (68.1%) for 4,355 yards with 34 TDs and 11 INTs.

Von Miller had 1.5 sacks today, to give him 17.5 on the season, which surpassed Elvis Dumervil's club record of 17.0 sacks, set in 2009. Von Miller won't break the NFL record, but props on the team record and a shot at 20 sacks. One a side note, Elvis Dumervil had 2 sacks today, which gives him 11.0 sacks on the season.

Including playoff games, Denver is 22-5 overall versus Cleveland, including 10 wins in a row.

Denver hasn't lost to Cleveland in over 22 years....since October 8th, 1990.

I wonder how Mara is taking these Giants whippings.

Oh well, time for him to regroup this offseason and "make things fair" for his precious Giants. What a piece of ****; I wonder what outrageous bull **** he will come out with next.

Maybe he will stop philly from getting a high draft pick. Jackass.

I wanted to check to see if there is some kind of trend for playing well late in the season and winning the SB.

Going back to 2000 SB winners are 35-13 in December and 18-6 the last two games of the year.

The Saints are the only team to have a losing record in December and win the SB in that time frame. Only three teams have split the month and won the SB. The Packers, Colts and Giants. Packers and Giants got hot and the Colts wanted to rest their starters.

Basically playing well in December can be one indicator of being a SB team.

I think with 3 more TDs Manning will hold the record for most TDs in a season for a QB over 35 years old (Farve/S Young)

The Bears cut second-year wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher, who played in five games this season. He had one reception for seven yards.

Sanzenbacher, an undrafted free agent from Ohio State in 2011, led all Bears wide receivers with three touchdown catches as a rookie in 2011. He was Cutler’s go-to receiver after Earl Bennett was injured, catching 19 passes for 166 yards and three touchdowns in six games.

But his playing time diminished once Bennett returned, and he finished his rookie year with 27 receptions for 276 yards.

I know it's late in the season, but Dane Sanzenbacher would be an upgrade over Matthew Willis.

He'd the kind of guy Peyton Manning could count on in the slot, as Brandon Stokley can't play forever and needs to be use on a limited basis.

Dane Sanzenbacher is a precise route runner and is known for being where he needs to be and making the tough catches....all attributes that Peyton Manning loves in his WRs.

I doubt it will happen, but I know he is an upgrade over Matthew Willis.

You really think a WR getting cut on a team that has one of the worst WR corps in the league would be an upgrade?

Yes....I wouldn't exactly call the Bears one of the more competent teams in terms of offensive team roster evaluation, look at the offensive line they've assembled.

Besides, do you really see Matthew Willis as being a valuable asset?

Name a few plays in particular that have given you this notion.

I see him as a player on the roster begging for an upgrade to be brought in.

I'm not saying signing Dane Sanzenbacher would be a roster shattering, difference making move. I'm saying I think it would be one of those in season shrewd moves that John Elway and company have made this season that would be a minor upgrade on the roster.

If they don't do it this season, as it's probably a little late to bring him in and get him acclimated to the offense in such a short time frame, they should sign him when the season is over if nobody has claimed him.

Sanzenbacher is the kind if of player who would attach himself at the hip to Peyton Manning in the offseason and get on the same page with and come into training camp and have some chemistry and cohesiveness right off the bat.
