Barry Richardson Wants To Cut Block Tamba Hali

Former Kansas City Chiefs RT Barry Richardson, is looking forward to playing his old team this Saturday when the Rams host KC in for the Governor’s Cup.

Richardson left the Chiefs in free agency this past offseason after serving as the team’s right tackle for the last two seasons. Richardson has done well for himself since arriving in St. Louis and it appears that right now he is the favorite to land the starting RT job there.

Richardson talked a bit about playing his old team in a recent article on stltoday.com.

Otherwise, it will be Richardson. By all accounts, Richardson didn’t play well in Kansas City, even though he was a starter. Unwanted by the Chiefs this offseason, Richardson said playing against his old team Saturday, “hits me a little bit right here,” tapping his chest.

Richardson added, “They have some people I played with for four years, so I finally get to hit them. That’ll be feeling good.”

He then added in jest, “I always wanted to cut (block) Tamba.”

It makes sense that Richardson would be looking forward to this game, I mean…wait…wait a second, what did he say?

I always wanted to cut (block) Tamba.


Richardon, also know as “The Bull Fighter,” around here, is famous in Kansas City for his absolutely atrocious play. He was one of the lowest ranked tackles in all of football last season according to Pro Football Focus. He was also known for his propensity to destroy drives by either allowing opposing pass rushers to run right by him or by drawing false start penalties, thus putting his team in a third and long situation. Richardson was also fond of drawing those penalties and then allowing the pass rusher to get by him.

Anyway, the idea that Richardson would ever be able to get out of his stance fast enough to throw a block on a player like Tamba Hali, is, in a word, laughable.

The only circumstance where I could envision Richardson getting a hand on Hali is if Tamba offered him a handshake.

Is anyone else REALLY looking forward to watching the Chiefs pass rush face Barry the Bullfighter?

    The rams and B.Rich suck so bad I wont b putting much weight into this easy win fri. Im shocked B.Rich is even a starter. The oline must be doo doo! Lol

    • Calchiefsfan

      Hey Micah what did you think Of Cassel’s performance Friday? Funny how much better he looks with an o line that can block, plays getting in on time and the ability to call an audible. He seemed to read the AZ defense just fine and find the open man on that TD to Hillis.

      • micah stephenson

        I agree wat everything you said. He looked good and that was without the 4 Bs and T.Moe catching a pass. I had no doubt about wat he wud do. Also after watchin the highlights from other preseason games I noticed all these so called franchise QBs lookn like trash behind bad oline play. I always wondered y Cassel didnt call the plays at the los and y the Chiefs didnt go into no huddle more often. Musta been Haleys dum *ss!

        • Calchiefsfan

          From everything I read and saw it was Haley’s dumb *ss. Can’t wait for the 3rd preseason game, Seattle, where the 1st team plays 3 quarters against a good D.

          • micah stephenson

            I cant wait too. Glad the game is at Arrowhead!

  • ladner morse

    How could Barry “Rubber-Knife” Richardson possibly think he could … “CUT” … the Tamba “Man-of-Steal” Hali? Ain’t gonna happen. Him be hallucinatin’.

  • Dfrey87

    I seen this dirt bag in last weeks game he was horrible still he gave up a sack, a hit and a bunch of pressure along with two penalties and he thinks he gonna do anything to tamba his mouth is writing checks his ass cant cash.

  • Calchiefsfan

    The word delusional comes to mind. Tamba? Really? Well we finally get to cheer and say YES when B Rich misses his block instead of moan and say OH NO.

  • ArrowFan

    Just so long as he doesn’t intentionally or unintentionally hurt Tamba I’m fine with him and his delusions.

    Barry is crazier than hell. Who do you think was a worse RT? Richardson or Damian McIntosh?

    • micah stephenson

      I remember McIntosh’s best block eva. He threw a guy down and wen the next guy ran up he threw him on top if the 1st guy he threw down. The 2nd guy was spining around like a top or breakdancer on the 1st guy while McIntosh stood ova both of them pointing at them and jumping for joy at how bad he made them look. It was the coolest block i eva seen!

      Richardson by far. Sackintosh sucked but I don’t remember him getting as many stupid drive killing penalties as B-Rich did.

  • Brandon

    Is he serious? Too funny. Can’t wait to see Tamba throw him on his ass.

  • Jim Harper

    I hope he was saying that to be funny. If he were to actually do that with the intention of hurting Tamba he would never get a chance to play again after the Chiefs were done with him. He will get Bradford killed.

  • Michael Shaw

    I would think a provocative statement such as this would get him fined and maybe suspended by the league having seen what they did to the Saints organization based on the bounty scandal?????!!! Either way, I hope Tamba knocks him on his ass so hard that his neanderthal ancestors go “Fuck that hurt!!!”. What an idiot!

    • http://powellbailbonds.weebly.com/ big chief

      He didn’t say he wanted to hurt Tamba and cut blocks aren’t illegal so he won’t be fined but Tamba will make him look silly.

  • KCMikeG

    I hope Pitoitau crushes his worthless ass! What a NO class act. How sad is their OL if he is their starter? Hali & Houston will bring the pain.

  • http://powellbailbonds.weebly.com/ big chief

    Tamba will make El Matador his bitch!

  • http://www.facebook.com/andy.slaughter1 Andy Slaughter

    That is assuming Richardson even knows how to cut block (or block at all for that matter). However, I am guessing, due to lack of evidence, that he does not.

    • KCMikeG

      I could have sworn he had been issued a restraining order from using the word “block” until hearings can be held to determine if he is guilty of fraud.

  • Falcon58

    I find this all laughable. Especially the part were Richardson is the RT and Hali is the ROLB. They’ll be on opposite sides most of the game I’m sure.

  • Ammon

    That is so laughable!! He couldn’t block his way out of a wet paper bag!! He just plays Toro with his jersey to on coming rushers when he isn’t jumping offsides!! Tamba will just help him continue his already embarrassing career. I have never wanted to get rid of a Chiefs player that bad since Lin Elliot!! Good riddance!!

    Barry cant wait to get bullrushed and eat more dirt just like he usually does…
