I sure hope so and I know I will get slammed for making such a statment. But hear me out. I think we need another RB IF RWilliams will not be available.
I love R Brown, and to me a tailback has 3 critical skills, Running with the ball, catching the ball, and blocking. Of those 3 skills, RBrown is not a good a ball runner as he is a blocker and pass catcher. Just my opinion.
I also live in Louisiana for years and an as avid LSU fan, I observed Saban likes a deep bench at the Tailback position, without RWilliams on the roster, I would not be shocked to see Saban add depth at this position wither via free agency or draft(especially since there is a deep draft at the RB position, we could add depth here on the second day of draft Im sure)
I am an avid Fantasy Football player and I know having the dreaded two headed monster at the RB position on a team in terms of "fantasy football" is not preferred.
But ask yourself this question, did you or did you not enjoy the fact that last year we had two studs at the RB position to turn to? Did you like during the first 4 games during RWilliams abscence to have RBrown to turn to? Do you think our final 6 game winning streak when Rbrown was nursing some injuries and lost some playing time, do you think this 6 game winning streak would have been possible without RWilliams? Why during the games we won, did Saban keep RWilliams as the primary RB in the 4th quarter and not RBrown?

All IM saying is this, to me I like the idea of having two "A" premier RBs in our lineup compared to 1, and I hope next year we will continue to maintain one of the best "one two punches" in the league like last year. Two stud RBs is better than one.

I love Ronnie brown and he will be so much better next year. You all should remember he did not go thru much of training camp and Ronnie can break a 5 yard gain for 80. We already have Minor and I think Kay Jay will be a decent back-up and Sammy morris might still come back.

Give me a break. He is not a good ball runner? Just because he is a good blocker and good reciever doesn't mean he is better at those than he is at running the ball. You don't almost get 1000 yards as a rookie while splitting time with another back if your not a VERY GOOD ball runner. You don't get selected with the second pick either. Ronnie is better than many backs at recieving and blocking, but thats only because those have become lost arts at the position, but his #1 attribute is being able to run the ball or he wouldn't be a feature back. There probaly isn't a starting RB in the NFL that can say running the ball isn't their best attribute. The Dolphins could add depth through FA or the draft, but it isn't a knock on Ronnie, it is just because you need depth at the position in the NFL.

WHY do you like this idea? How effective was it for us this year? It wasn't, at all. Did Ricky even HAVE a TD? We didn't use two "star" running backs effectively last season, so why waste another pick on one? Especially now that our picks are dwindling? All the "2 RB system" did last year was HURT Ricky and Ronnie IMO. It seemed like Ronnie could never get into a groove because as soon as he started feeling comfortable in comes Ricky, and the same goes for Ricky. I think Ronnie needs to be the premier back and we need a backup that can get the job done should he be injured or need a break. I DON'T think we should try and get another back that can split time with him, especially given all our other needs that are much more important, when it wasn't done effectively last season. Look how good Ronnie was when he DID get into a rythm? Imagine what he could have done had Ricky not randomly been thrown in.

there are so many wrong things with your statement i'm not really sure how to reply to it. all i can say is ronnie is a better "ball runner" than he is a blocker. his pass catching ability is also above average. remember that ronnie was a rookie last year when ricky was out. he held up pretty well all thigns considered. and correct me if i'm mistaken but i believe he finished with a 4.1 rushing average (might have been 4.4 i can't remember right now). we added beasley so we have a legit fullback now who can block. i'm hoping and meditating on ricky coming back so we can have a two headed monster that you speak of. also fantasy football is just that a fantasy so don't compare it to the real thing, doesn't hold water. think it through.

Yes I watched the games, the nine games we won I have watched at least twice since the season has ended, and like I said, what I see is Ronnie hesitating at the hole and being taken out of games in the mid part of 4th quarter for R Williams. Why?
He is good, and has durability issues like he did his entire college career. Go watch Ronnie hit the hole last year in any game you choose and then go watch Carnel Williams hit the hole in a Tampa start, there is no comparison C Willams is the better RB after receiving the handoff. Ronnie is the better overall RB, a better blocker and pass catcher, he will never carry the franchise. Like I said before which you failed to read, I said R Brown is an excellent RB and I would not be suprised to see Saban add some depth at this position IF R Williams is gone because Saban likes depth at this position, and Ronnie Brown alone next year will not give us more wins, and Travis Minor is not the answer.

in our final 6 game winning streak...

R Williams 506 rushing yards 6 TDs and a 4.8 rushing average

R Brown 176 Rushing yards 1 TDs and a 3.2 rushing average

RWilliams 1 fumble lost

R Brown 3 fumbles lost

RWilliams had 6 Rushing Tds last year than Browns total of 4, and he missed the first 4 games!

the numbers dont lie...yes youngster, I dont know football.

R Williams had twice as many carries( because of RBrowns missing time due to injury, just like college)

Again, my point is we need depth behind Ronnie Brown, without depth(only if RWilliams is gone for the year) we will not win as many games as last year.

Without Ronnie or Rwilliams in lineup in the backfield, then the anemic rushing attack of 2004 will return and im sure we dont want that.
If Saban makes a move to add depth to this position if it is determined that R Williams is a no show for 2006, then do not be suprised.

I am worried if R Williams is gone, we do not have an adequate backup.

If Ricky is suspended then we can just increase the carries for Ronnie Brown....I don't think this would be a bad thing. RB should be even better next year. I think we are ok in this area with who we have now. Our priorities have to be in our secondary, O-line, and possibly another LB depending on whether or not we get Arrington.

Man I agree with you and I hope you are right. Like I said, living in SEC country thru Ronnie Browns tenure at Auburn, he had durablity issues there and last year as a PRO. but who doesnt have durability issues in thier first year? Even C Williams missed time due to injury. I am praying that this year RBrown has 1500 rushing yards and 12TDs and another 400 yards receiving with a couple of TDs in 15 starts. If he does, I will never complain again.

I guess when I watched CWilliams last year, his running style made me think of E James, R Williams, M Faulk, and when I saw Ronnie Brown run, I thought of Eddie George. Not that Eddie George is a bad thing, but Eddie George in his prime did not equal E James on a bad day. God I hope Im wrong, and I hope that Tampa and Chicago having C Williams ranked ahead of R Brown on thier draft board was wrong as well. Ronnie Brown is a great RB, I just hope he takes it to the next level next year without missing time due to injury.

I agree Ronnie is no Ricky but he's better than alot of backs in this league. He's just gunna have to prove that he can sustain his level of play through out the season. Than if Ricky doesn't come back hopefully we can forget about Ricky. But I'm hoping he's back this year.

The only reason he is a better receiver and blocker than runner... is because he is already becoming one of the best RBs in the league in terms of receiving and blocking...

He is still a GREAT runner... and will get even better. We dont need a "stud" #2 RB. We only need a solid servicable one. Sammy Morris (if re-signed) would be fine for a number 2.

The RB by committee thing works when you have 2 solid RBs... not when you have a premier one. In order to maximize the talents of a premier one, you need to feed him the ball. You do the committee approach when your RBs arnt capeable of handling the load by themselves...

Wasn't RB averagine more YPC at one point late in the season and also had more all purpose yards while splitting carries with a pro bowl back late in the season before (for whatever reason) he wasn't getting the bacll much. It doesn't make sense to say he's not good running the ball, not to mention that C. Williams is that much better (because he isn't) he just happened to get alot more publicity then Ronnie.

Well here I am diggin up my old post from a year ago, and it is still a valid point. Ronnie Brown came in at #23 ranked out of 32 teams which is below average. The league is a 2 back league, and IF R WIlliams does not come back, we need a strong RB to take us to the next level.

While I'm not opposed to adding another running back, you are forgetting one thing in your analysis or critique. Except for Chicago, those teams all have Pro Bowl calibur QBs and for the most of the 1st half of the season, Grossman was having a Pro Bowl-type year.

hmmm.... so the fact that Ronnie was a ROOKIE doesnt mean anything. Or how about the fact that he missed a whole lot of training camp. And dont forget how our OLine seems to suck at the beginning of the year and slowly progress as the season goes on. Seriously take a look at the situation before you post these stats. You also neglected to point out the fact that Ronnie was injured for a good portion of that 6 game winning streak.

And besides, I fully expect Ricky to come back this year, and if he doesnt...o well. Morris can be retained, he is an adequate backup for our STAR running back.

We don't need to draft a runningback when we got Ronnie :D

I love Ronnie, but I gotta admit I'm pretty excited to see Ricky come back.

Peterson moved up to 3rd in the draft so there no one better to draft then what we got.I love the fact that Ricky back and finally we will be feared with the running game . but guess what, he is 1 drug test from leaving the nfl .I really dont think he will last 1 more season without screwing up.I hope Im wrong because he is truly a beast! I had high expectation for ronnie when we drafted him but all he has been to me is a BIG disappointment hope he improves this season but nothing less then 1500 would get me jumping.The thing ronnie has over ricky is he has the better hands to catch..
