Ricky Williams Is Smokin': Dolphins Didn't Need Ronnie Brown

Edwin BearContributor INovember 20, 2009

Rushing for 122 yards on 22 carries with two touchdowns on the ground and receiving for 19 yards with two receptions and one touchdown through the air proves Ricky isn’t so dumb after all.


He’s 32 years old but really in running back years he’s 30 because of the two years he didn’t play.  Those years off kept Ricky’s legs and body fresh while he did what he wanted.  Now that he decided to come back and play he proves he’s still one of the best when he tries.


Ricky said he’ll retire next season.  If he does the game will miss yet another mysterious running back that was one of the most talented in history.  He adds his name to the list of great running backs (Jim Brown , Barry Sanders , Robert Smith , and Tiki Barber ) that ended their careers early and amongst controversy.
