Let's just hope the #1 defense in the league doesn't make a hero out of this guy like they did last week against the lowly Jets, aka "the Green Slime".

I dont see ricky as a threat. And I didnt see him as a threat when he came back the first time. The phins will cut him this off season

Didn't he average like 1.2 yards rushing/play in the pass happy CFL? If the dude can't gain more than a yard and a half from a spread offense against a dime defense expecting the pass, why would he be able to do better against us?

Precisely - he hasn't played in a NFL game in two years, hasn't been worth a damn as a RB in five, but he's going to gouge us all night? This guy toked his best years away.

i dont think i'd count on the dolphins having a running game after the steelers run defense got embarrassed last week. this may be their stingiest game of the year against the run.

I don't think Ricky will have too many carries. Maybe 5-10 if any.

You never know. QB's not that great & Chatman is listed as questionable.

Now if this was his first year in Miami, I would be afraid.

The story of Ricky Williams is a tragic one. He could have been one of the greatest ever, now he's a joke in the footnotes of professional football. If someone would have gotten him some help earlier (in college, when he was with the Saints, his first year as a Dolphin), things could be different.

The quaility of QBs in the CFL is at the lowest I have seen in a while. None of the starting 8 QBs would have started for a CFL team ten years ago. So it's not a huge pass happy league right now. And it didn't help that Ricky got hurt and that the Toronto Argos abandoned the game running game more times that I could remember that past few years.

Just sayin.. If the guy could get back to form he can be a dominating factor. Im not sure where his head is but from a pure football standpoint does it make any sense

Not really - the Dolphins spent two seasons building their team around him and he quits on them in preseason because he likes weed better than football. The Dolphins have yet to recover. Again, no thank you.

The guy wasted what would have been his prime, he will get traded at the end of the year and then next year he will be out of the league....either by more pot or by being a non-factor.

besides there are plenty of good players in the draft, as the Steelers have proved time and time again

From a pure football standpoint, he hasn't played for what, like 3 years. I'm sorry, but he'll never be anything like he was. He's pretty soft right now. He'd only be a work in progress for any team besides the Phins.

When i saw the play on live TV Timmons stepping on Ricky William's shoulder did not look on purpose at all. It did looked like it hurt alot but it looked like he was just trying to get to the ball as fast as he could. Yet, I keep hearing it was intentional. People say it was on purpose because of what Ricky did to the league. Also people go as far as saying that if ricky wasnt injured they would have won.

Reaction

You try stopping on that field and cutting to make a play on that fumble. That shoulder was the most stable surface for footing available. Aren't shoulder pads supposed to soften blows?

Quit trying to find controversy where there is none. The play wasn't over and then he stepped on him, like Haynesworth. He was making a play. If it means recovering a fumble, then I expect a player to do whatever it takes. Just think about what goes on at the bottom of those piles...


That was no mistake that Steeler player Timmons laid on Rickey Williams - he drove his spiked cleat right into his shoulder to take him out of the game knowing the Dolphins had no other experienced back - how shameful.


That was some real crap. Terrible! It would have been the worst defeat ever. 0-11 Dolphins with Ricky Williams beating you at home. Cheap shot. I really believe the Fins should have won that game. Too bad. With that Terrible showing I think the Steelers should be ranked 2nd to last they are terrible. Lose to a 2-8 Jets and win 3-0 to the 0-11 Fins. Yeah they are a good team...........


As I watched the replay of the Williams fumble, I would not help but think that Timmons intentionally stepped on the shoulder of the Dolphin RB. You could see him plant the foot and drive it into Ricky's shoulder. I agree, I think he saw it as an opportunity to get Williams out of the game so Miami would have to use a RB lower on the depth chart. And maybe, Timmons just doesn't like Ricky, after all, he has rubbed some of the players in the league the wrong way with his antics the past few years.


If any one has a video of it please post

I don't know, it looked like you can make an arguement that it was intentional. I'm not saying it was intentional however.

Miami did play well enough to win. I can see why he would say that the Dolphins should have won. The Steelers did play bad and probably should have lost but they were playing the Dolphins.

I can make the same argument about the helmet-to-helmet concussion-rendering hit on Ben in the Atlanta game last year, however no flag was thrown on that one, nor on this one.

Miami crossed midfield twice all night, while the Steelers lived on Miami's side of the field. How is that "playing well enough to win"?

Not back anymore:

From Rotoworld.com:
The Palm Beach Post reports that Ricky Williams is out for the season with a torn chest muscle.
That was fast. Williams probably didn't show enough to garner much trade interest, so the Dolphins must decide if they want to keep him at a cheap salary next season. We'd guess Ricky will be back. With Jesse Chatman hurting, Patrick Cobbs becomes a worthwhile pickup in most leagues. Nov. 27 - 2:50 pm et

And what did the Steelers get out of that. 3 points at the very end of the game. The horrible Dolphins D held the Steelers in check, overall.
