Just saw this was your 1st post Justin. Welcome. Funny, I thought of starting a band a few years ago and thought of that ) Justin Case) as the name. A few years later I read that Steven Tyler (yes, THAT Steven Tyler) named his first band or one of his bands before Aerosmith -Justin Time. I may think like him occasionally. I can even sing sort of like him, but I sure don't have his talent. Anyway, welcome.

No problem.

Actually this isn't my first post, it is around 125 (still not that many) but for some reason when I logged in it didn't keep my profile updated... I think it is doing it again for this post, don't know why.

Yeah, I'm a big fan of the name too. I had it as a nickname for awhile... and then saw some cheesy pop band with it... which kinda hurt.

If he came back, I doubt he would have any of the talent he showed in previous seasons. Spend a year doing nothing but smoking pot in foriegn countries, and your physical shape as well as football skills are going to take a huge hit.

Or improve.

Who's to say that he hasn't kept up with his physical conditioning and training.. and frankly, getting the hell out of the Phins for a year could only do him good from my perspective. Keep in mind they fed him a staggering 383 carries in 02 and 392 carries in 03 - with a total of 430 all-purpose touches in 02, and 442 in 03. He also played every game in both seasons for Miami.

While everyone looks at his year off as a marijuana tinted adventure (and to an extent I agree..), I think his year long break - even if it was a drugs, sex, and munchies filled vacation - would be more healthy than a third ~450 touch season would have left him in 04-5. I mean he has great stamina and all, but how many more games would it take for him to end up so fatigued that injury would almost certainly become a factor? Even as 2003-4 went along, Ricky's fatigue was apparent to anyone that has watched the games.

If he's clean, and works hard to get into prime condition during the off and pre-seasons, I think he'll be a far more efficient player than he was in 2k3 for any team that he signs on with.

I can't believe you honestly think the man was on a training sabbatical. He's a 2 time loser. Probably can still tote the rock but he doesn't deserve the opportunity IMO

:-b :-b :-b

These days, approximately 84 rupees per British Pound Sterling...

So 25 pounds is worth about 2,092 rupees...and who knows how much hemp. :-b ;-D
