  • Ricky Williams: How Good Could He Have Been?

    I was wondering the general assessment/opinions of the board.
    The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

    I'm more interested in how good Boobie Miles could have been.

        How could he have been if he was in a perfect situation? I think you'd be hard pressed to find to many people who disagree with hall of famer. He was a top prospect out of college for a reason. With the right coaching and team around him I'm sure he could have been an elite back.

          If the league let him have his medicine he would've taken Emmitt Smith out of the record books.

            He was probably the best RB prospect in the past 10-15 years, so most likely HoF.

              Not with the workload the Dolphins were giving him before he quit.

                I don't think it would be outrageous to say he could have been a HOFer.

                  given a better work ethic, his size/speed combo, i wouldn't disagree with HoF potential. Doesn't necessarily mean it is a gaurentee, but the potential to forsure

                    2002 Ricky Williams is still probably the best RB I ever saw. He was literally a beast, it was an incredible sight.

                    And work ethic wasn't a problem with Ricky, come on. Wannstache and the sorry Dolphins teams drained him of his love for the game. He was going to end up worse than Earl Campbell, who Ricky was very familiar with playing ball in Texas, at that pace.

                      Funny you mention that. The reason I brought the thread up was because I was watching his 2002 highlights on YouTube (five parts).

                        well, u can look at it in a different way also. You could say that he had a work ethic, but it didn't stick, thus his work ethic wasn't very good later on, for whatever the reason may have been......i'm not saying he wasn't being overused or anything like that, but if u don't love the game, u don't work as hard. same thing essentially

                          L.V. Miles: [to people from colleges] How ya'll doin' up there? Ya'll doin' all right? 45, Boobie, that's my nephew out there. That boy can play some football. He can play left, he can play right, don't make no difference. He can block, tackle, score the touch down, snap the ball, and kick the extra point. Hell, the boy will fill up the Gatorade cooler, walk the dog, and paint your back porch. I'm telling ya, the boy can plain out play football.
                          [pause while Boobie throws ball]
                          L.V. Miles: OOHH! And he can pass!

                            He probably would have been a HOFr. The years in Miami did him in. People dog on him because of his state of mind and losing his desire to play football, but it's not hard to see why he got tired of football when the Dolphins kept riding him like a horse because they never made a real attempt at getting a QB. The Dolphins had all the pieces in place........great D, amazing RB, solid WR core, great TE.........all the pieces except QB. I know it'd piss me off if I were in his shoes during those years. I mean Jay Fiedler, AJ Feeley, Brian Griese.......I mean seriously.

                            I am done arguing, until somebody says something stupid.

                              He was a definite stud before he cracked out. I would'nt disagree with HOF
