Rey Maualuga, Trent Richardson jawing back and forth

Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga isn’t very impressed with Browns rookie running back Trent Richardson and he’s not afraid to let everyone know.

“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 CBSSports.com, 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.”

Richardson plans on proving Maualuga wrong on the field on Sunday.

“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.”

This Sunday’s game between the Bengals and Browns will at least have some meaning other than it being the battle of Ohio.  Because let’s be honest, this is one of the more boring games of the week.
