Game Recaps

2010 Week 10 vs CLE (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)

Normally just a blocker (if you can call one of the best blocking full backs of all time 'just a blocker'), Richardson was targeted twice in this game and made both catches. It was clear in both cases that Richardson was a last ditch target for QB Mark Sanchez.

2010 Week 11 vs HOU (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Richardson's chief duties were, as always, blocking for Sanchez and leading the way for Tomlinson and Greene. He also took a handoff from Brad Smith and gained a few yards up the middle, but it was an unusual play you won't see much.

2010 Week 16 vs CHI (2 / 5 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Richardson had some success running vs blocking on Sunday, and was able to gain first downs on both of his carries. He also had a nice run after the catch at the end of the first half for seven yards. The bulk of his duties were, as always, blocking, but he showed he still had something left carrying the ball as well.

2010 Week 17 vs BUF (2 / 6 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Richardson, like many of the vets, had a light day, popping in and out of the game, but giving more snaps to rookie John Conner. Richardson did his usual solid job blocking on pass downs and did fine running the ball as well. Conner, at this point, is a better and more effective ball carrier then Richardson, but Richardson is still the better fullback overall and will be key in any playoff run the Jets manage to make.

2009 Week 3 vs TEN (1 / 7 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Richardson had a nice run, and a catch in the end zone that he couldn't get both feet inbounds on - but he's still just a fullback.

2009 Week 11 vs NE (1 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

The Jets FB had only 1 carry on a 3rd and short where he was unable to pick up the first down. It was only his 4th carry on the season. He did grab one pass for 4 yards.

2009 Week 13 vs BUF (2 / 36 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

The Jets FB doesn't get many opportunities to run the ball (12 rushes coming into this contest), but had a nice 20 yard carry in the first half and added another 17 yard run in the second half.

2008 Week 10 vs STL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Richardson dropped his only target on the day.

2007 Week 11 vs OAK (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)

Richardson hauled in two of his three targets for an average of 9.5 yards per reception.

2007 Week 15 vs CHI (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)

Richardson had one rushing attempt, and he caught both passes thrown his way.

2007 Week 16 vs WAS (1 / -1 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)

Richardson was seldom used on the night. He was stopped on his only rushing attempt in the end zone for a safety.

2006 Week 2 vs CAR (4 / 10 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Richardson had a few short yardage carries including one at the end of the overtime at the goal line just before PK Ryan Longwell kicked the game winner.

2006 Week 3 vs CHI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Richardson had one reception for seven yards.

2006 Week 4 vs BUF (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 31 / 0 rec)

Richardson had two catches for 31 yards with no rushing attempts. Richardson was wide open on his first reception going 25 yards into Bills' territory before being tackled.

2006 Week 8 vs NE (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)

The fullback caught all three of his targets. He converted a third down with an eight yard reception with a good effort after contact. His other two catches were for short gains and one was negated by a penalty.

2006 Week 9 vs SF (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 33 / 0 rec)

Richardson proved to be a reliable receiver out of the backfield for Brad Johnson as he caught three balls for 33 yards. Johnson threw a lot balls to his backs since he had trouble finding open receivers down the field most of the game.

2006 Week 10 vs GB (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 13 / 0 rec)

Richardson failed to pick up a blitzing Packer linebacker in the first quarter that resulted in a sack and lost fumble. He did make a big third down catch for 14 yards because of a good second effort to break a tackle on the Vikings second touchdown drive of the game.

2005 Week 2 vs OAK (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Richardson did not need to run the ball to contribute significantly for the Chiefs. After being questionable earlier in the week due to an injury last week, he provided his usual exceptional pass and run blocking as the Kansas City fullback. In particular he provided an excellent block during Larry Johnson's touchdown run.

2005 Week 3 vs DEN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)

Richardson was not able to effectively lead the way for Holmes or Johnson. He had to leave the contest in the second half after taking a hard hit while trying to block on a running play.

2005 Week 6 vs WAS (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Richardson was targeted one time on an incomplete pass. He was used mainly as a blocking fullback on running plays.

2005 Week 7 vs MIA (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)

Richardson did not have any rushing attempts, but he was very valuable in the passing game. He caught the only ball thrown to him, but more important, he was an excellent blocker on obvious passing downs. He contributed greatly to Trent Green's passing statistics.

2005 Week 9 vs OAK (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 8 / 1 rec)

Richardson made a two yard catch in the second quarter. His second reception was a six yard touchdown catch in the third quarter.

2005 Week 10 vs BUF (2 / 8 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Richardson was used briefly to spell Johnson.

2005 Week 11 vs HOU (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Richardson brought out his usual exemplary fullback performance. He displayed his Pro Bowl credentials as a pass blocker for Trent Green, a run blocker for Larry Johnson, and as an occasional emergency offensive outlet.

2005 Week 12 vs NE (1 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Richardson did not have any point production, fantasy or otherwise. He was again effective while being used as a lead blocker.

2005 Week 14 vs DAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)

Fullback Tony Richardson was used occasionally as a third down back but often as a lead block or decoy for Larry Johnson's rushing attempts.

2005 Week 15 vs NYG (1 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Richardson carried the ball once for no yards in the opening quarter. He was also thrown a short pass for an attempted screen in the final minute of the first half but dropped a slightly low throw.

2005 Week 16 vs SD (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)

Richardson put on another great effort. He was a force as a pass blocker and he also provided a good receiving outlet for Trent Green.

2005 Week 17 vs CIN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 22 / 0 rec)

Richardson caught the only ball thrown to him for a good gain and he also contributed often as a rushing and passing blocker.
