I still rock my Ricky jersey on Sundays, he's one of my favorite Fins of all times. For a couple years there in the early 2000s we had the best runningback and one of the best pass rush tandems/ secondaries in the league... We lost.thanks to our horrible QBs and.God awful coaching staff. I'd like to kick Jay Fiedler, Norv Turner and Pornstache in the nuts.so badly.
"I don't have pet peeves, I have psychotic ****ing hatred"
man.... he was fun to watch
Easily my favorite player of all time
If only we could put him in a time machine...
Let's not lose our humanity in all of this. He has a right to step away from this game if he chooses (whether or not it's legal is another question). I respect him more as a person than a player. I loved that he played for Miami, but as I grew past his "quitting", I understood what defined him. It wasn't the yards, touchdowns, trophies, or awards. Rather, it was fixing himself. He is an illuminating individual. So let's not let the cloud of football obscure that from our view.
and while quitting was bad what was worse was having so many kids w/ so many different women and abandoning them(and before you bash Cromartie I bash him as well- he's an idiot just like Ricky).
1. Ricky is a BEAST and a complete RB, hands, speed, power, vision, there is no wasted effort when he ran!
2. Rob Konrad was a monster FB!
3. Chris Chambers was sick back in those days!
4. Orande Gadsden hands are unbelievable!
5. Does Rishard Mathews look just like Gadsden or what!!!
Wow I forgot about the hit on chambers against Denver. That was what hurt our season the most. But man was that Denver game amazing. Mare was the man that year.
R1: Doriel Green-Beckham WR Oklahoma (if he's there he's too good to pass on, a la Randy Moss.)
R2: Denzel Perryman LB Miami (smallish but fierce.)
R3: Ladarius Gunther CB Miami
R4: David Cobb RB Minnesota
R5: Adrian Amos Safety Penn State
R6: Warren Herring DT Wisconsin
R7: Kaleb Johnson G Rutgers
And now after watching all 5 I am sad. What a terrible ending to what should have been a great season. Chris Carter dropping the GW catch against his former team in Minnesota? That one hurt. And to think I had forgiven him for that. Not anymore, thanks for reminding me OP.
