    Incredible Article On ESPN Written By Ricky Williams

    I'm not exactly sure what to say about the article except, READ IT! The way he's talking now, he sounds as though he's ready to try to carry this team to the Super Bowl on sheer will power alone; WOW! I for one am about to burst waiting for opening day- less than one week! (Man that's a lot of exclamation marks )

    Man that got me fired up!! Look out Detroit!! My two favorite quotes:

    "The environment here has helped me a lot. In New Orleans, we go to the playoffs and we get to be grand marshals at Mardi Gras. Here they're booing the team during the playoffs. They're tired of 11-5 in Miami,......"

    "The defense is insanely competitive. The other day we scored on them at the end of a 9 p.m. practice, and they started yelling and cursing at the coaches for another try. "

    great article

    you cannot ask for 2 better pairs of teammates on O and D than Jay and Ricky and JT and Zach.

    Jay and Ricky seem so different but they are really just incredibly intelligent, highly motivated, professional athletes. Everytime I hear or read anything from either of them, I just respect them more. Of course, I like Ricky's taste in music better- I think - what does Jay listen to...

    run ricky run........................

    unfortunately, our offensive line may put him into a deperession NO drug or therapist will be able to bring him out of.

    what i hope ricky learns is that he doesn't have to carry the team. that is a tall order to fullfill, for any player, on any team. it usually ends up disasterous.

    ricky could be setting himself up for to many dangerous peaks and valley's emotionally.

    i hope the coaches read this article and re direct some of his refreshing enthusiasm.

    " People have made fun of me and made me self-conscious about talking so softly, for example, but I accept that as who I am and I'm not changing it for anybody. "

    Another #34 Walter Payton talked softly and carried a BIG stick, nobody made fun of Payton. Ricky needs to do the same.

    This is an amazing story. I feel 100% better about him and this trade after reading this and I hope as many people as possible read his article.


    I think a sleeping giant has just been awakened and we as fans can sit back and enjoy the carnage week after week!

    go Ricky!!!!!!!!!!!
