He can hide behind a medical condition all he wants, the fact is he quit on his team then let them down again getting suspended b/c he couldn't stay off drugs. I get you like him and will defend him but this is not a good guy no matter how many excuses you make.
My favorite play of Ricky Williams was in a game against KC. He broke free along the sideline and as the tackler closed on him, Ricky picked him up by the neck and threw him aside. Just awesome display of speed, power and strength.
I loved watching him and was sorry to see him go.
I cannot say I wasn't very disappointed when he retired in 04, but after 35+ carries a game in the National Football League I would smoke a lot of pot too. DW ruined what could have been the best back in the 2000's. Had HOF type skill
What an absolute beast he was that year.
On the other hand, what a disappointing year that was. I remember thinking we were headed for a huge year after that awesome game in Denver and then Ray Lucas stunk up the joint for a handful of games after Fiedler got hurt in that win.
