Anthony Richardson: NFL Is Easier Than College Football

Anthony Richardson only played four games as a rookie after getting snake bitten by injury. With that said, the Colts starting quarterback has a hot take for everyone. He says playing in the NFL is easier than college football.

“Playing in the NFL, I feel like, is easier than in college,” Richardson said during an appearance on the “Club 520 podcast.” “In college, you got players that are good, they know they’re good, but they’re not as confident. They’ve got to rely on other players to do this for them and to do that. But in the league, everybody is trying to work to stay in the league and try to keep their job.”

He added: “That just let me know, I ain’t got to do too much. I’m going to do my job, and he’s going to do his job, and it’s going to work.”

I understand what Richardson is trying to say but I don’t think he accurately explained the reality of the situation he’s in.

In college, he played for Billy Napier, who is a total mess as a coach, and often went against SEC teams with superior talent.

In the NFL, he’s been given Shane Steichen, the coach responsible for getting Jalen Hurts to thrive. Steichen has built the entire six back offense around Richardson to get the most out of him.

The real lesson to be learned here is that you should never underestimate how much the environment matters to a quarterback. It means everything. Plus with Richardson, he’s such a freak athlete that he was never going to look out of place at the NFL level from that standpoint.

The former Florida signal caller finished his rookie year 2-2 posting 577 passing yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. He also rushed for 136 yards and four scores.
