From what I've seen, you may be right. I like Ricky a lot, always have, even when he's flaky, and even though he's let me down time after time. I just can't hate the guy. If Ronnie's able to come back for 25 carries a game, toss in an effective Ricky for 15 - 20, figure five or six balls out of the backfield each, Miami could chew up a whole lot of ground. Not a bad idea with the author of "Three Yards and a Cloud of Dust is a Successful Pass Play" at QB, or even a rookie . . . or two.
I like the prospects for a successful running game; I just hope the defense doesn't give up so many points that the running game becomes irrelevant. As a Phins fan, I don't think it'll be the torture it was last year, but realistically, if they hit 6 wins, I'll be pleasantly surprised. Not stunned,
just pleasantly surprised.
