The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero wrote a column today titled, "Ricky could be best player on Fins' roster". Yeah, it's that bad.
Ricky Williams looked every bit the best player on the field the last time the Dolphins were together for one of their offseason practices. He ran with authority, he showed quickness, and he never let himself shift out of top gear, even in drills that didn't mean much.
Williams, with cartoon superhero muscles bulging out of his jersey sleeves, caught the eyes of anyone paying attention.
But what did Bill Parcells think of the performance?
[Ricky] was the only player Dolphins football czar Bill Parcells congratulated with a fist bump as he was coming to the sideline after one workout.
Wow, they're on fist bump terms now. Soon enough they'll be dressing up like a bride and groom.
I want to see Ricky Williams succeed, but the fact that the a 31-year old RB who has had just six carries in the NFL in the past three years is your most impressive player is a bad sign. Maybe after the Dolphins play the Bills in Toronto, they should just stay there and join the CFL to play against competition on their level, like Williams' former team the Toronto Argonauts.
