    The Fall of the Miami Dolphins: Can They Rebuild with Current Group?

    Kirby Lee – US PRESSWIRE

    After five consecutive playoff appearances, the Miami Dolphins have made it to the playoffs just once since 2001. Since Dan Marino’s retirement in 1999, the Dolphins haven’t had an elite quarterback to lead them. The rushing game has been a patchwork job from mediocre players like Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown, with Wildcat formation trickery. It’s been a long and steady decline since Marino retired, but things finally appear to be turning around for the Miami Dolphins as a franchise.

    What the crap is this guy smokin? Ricky had one of the best years for a running back in nfl history? Mediocre? Lost all credibility if he had any to begin with.

    well i know it's not popular history but at the beginning of his career ronnie brown was a top5 back. Then the injury bug hit him, but i dont think he was mediocre.

    Ronnie Brown had brief flashes of being a top 5 back. He was never able to maintain it for even a season. He was a horrible pick at #2, though he does look better in comparison to the other running backs this team has drafted since 2005 (I'd take Ronnie Brown over Daniel Thomas any day of the week, but at least Thomas wasn't drafted at the top of the first round).

    I completely agree with this statement. Ricky was a beast, heck I wish our Running backs now were as good as Ricky was.

    Would you say that Ricky had a great Dolphins career? I wouldn't.

    He was a 'potential' phin from 2002-2010, and in those 9 years had two really noteworthy seasons (one amazing, one very good - 2002 and 2003). After that, when he was playing he was a solid guy. I think the article is just referencing his unreliability (missing 3 seasons) and the fact that his overall production probably didn't equal the four draft picks we paid for him (including 2 firsts). All things considered, I could see why the article would call his career mediocre.
