Assuming we bring in a new running back this off season, in preparation for the possible loss of R.Brown next year, whether it be a RFA (best available) or draft pick (Spiller, Mathews, etc)

Would R.Williams then be the best 3rd string Running back in the NFL this upcoming season? Probably not, I think it would be close with T.Choice, only holding a slight edge. What do you think?

Assuming that we don't, i dont think it would be relevant because he would be #2.

Assuming we did, who says that guy would be #2 and not RW?

The trifecta plan for the future, and adding a weapon at the running back position is a very good possibility, considering the uncertain future of R.Brown and R.Williams with the team.

If we end up trading for someone like D.Sproles (the chargers are willing to accept less than a 1st) or drafting CJ Spiller, then Ricky will end be 3rd string.

The question is, if he does end up 3rd string, is he the best 3rd string RB in the NFL?

I hate what ifs. Most of the time none of this ever happens but what if we got brandon marshall to play RB .....?
(Sorry couldn't help putting a.brandon marshall reference in here)

Great, another bash Ricky thread from you.. Couldnt you have covered this topic in your other bash Ricky thread?

This is a stupid question as Ricky Williams is already in the argument for best #2 back.

And it doesnt matter who you bring in, Ricky is going to be your @2 option.

What if Miami drafts a RB and Hilliard outplays Ricky ? Would he
then be the best 4th string rb in the NFL ? What if they
then moved Ricky to fullback ? Would he then be the worst
FB in the NFL ? Maybe they move him to Nose Tackle ? ahhhhhhhhhh !!!!

3rd? Seriously?? I am one that can't stand Ricky personally, but I am also very aware of his actual talent level. He is by no means a 3rd. He is a very good 2nd, and could be a 1st if it wasn't for his age and the fact that he appears to "wear down" quickly.

Question is completely off base...

3rd string? Like another poster said, Ricky is better than a lot of starters on other rosters.

So if Spiller joins the team, u guys think 33 year old (his age throughout this upcoming yr) fumbling Ricky is still the #2 RB? I have a hard time believing that

Really?

Ricky ran for 1200 yards, 11 TD's and averaged 4.7 a carry.

Tashard Choice couldn't hold Ricky's bong.

There are a lot worse problems to have than having a 3rd string back who is healty and coming off a 1000+ yard season. I'll take it in a heartbeat. That said... I highly doubt that Ricky will be 3rd on the depth chart.

I'm still getting used to this forum,
If someone starts a thread that asks a question that stirs up some debate, the people that are outnumbered are afraid to post.

And after a few smack talkers slam your thread, it gets put into the depths of the sea. I guess I'll figure it out eventually.

Actually no, I'll post any legitimate Fin question I want

So far,
Williams would still be #2 even if Spiller was on the team
And Williams is better than t.choice

I dont agree with either

Spiller isn't coming if Ronnie isn't leaving. No way the FO spends an early pick on a RB without having plans to move Ronnie.

So....Ricky would remain the #2.

Ricky Williams was a slouch at the end of last season
31 yards 2.6 ypc in week 17
35 yrds 3.5 ypc week 16

Thats wearing down

Ronnie is on a 1 year deal. If the front office has Spiller rated highest on their draft board when they pick at #12, I believe they absolutely would pick him.

And, a Ronnie/Spiller backfield would be scary for opposing defenses

Insightful, on topic, response like usual.

Your probably right, Ricky is a better runningback than me, although I wouldn't fumble as much

What a joke thread. If anything, Williams should be the #1 back going into next season. Hey, we gotta do something to protect Ronnie Brown's fragile body. I would be all in favor of bringing in another back seeing as this is probably the last year for both players in Miami.

So now Cobbs is better than Spiller

And Williams will start over Ronnie

dreaming is thinking we are going to draft spiller and spiller starting over ronnie or ricky....

munchkin

I don't think for a second that Spiller would start over Ronnie.

And I never said I think we will draft him, but I also realize it is a possibility. Spiller is a very talented player who would add a dimension to backfield that we haven't seen in a long time. The home run threat.

Ricky and Ronnie are both home-run threat's, and always have been...

i think ricky is going to start the season because of ronnie foot injury..and spiller if drafted would be 3 or 4 on our depth chart at best

did you watch those games. U do realize he only ran the ball like 10 times a piece in those and we were down by like 27 points to houston and 10 to pittsburgh.

so I guess Ronnie Brown was wearing down in the 4 straight games where he averaged 3.5, 3.0, 2.5 and 3.2. Im just saying

He wears down quickly really. i dont see him wear down no quicker than Brown.

I didn't mean within a single game, but over a few games. When Williams was asked to be the starter after Brown was hurt, he did a great job for the first few games. Then after that, he had several good games statistically, but it appeared that he just wasn't quite as fast as he had been in the first couple. The last two are hard to judge, as he really didn't get a lot of carries...but the impression I was left with is that his age was showing...

I still pose the same question how did he seem any more wore down than RB did. we all have opinions though you could be right
