That wouldn't make sense, and it probably wasn't physically possible for him to do yet, nor should anyone should of expected Ronnie to get 23 carries a game and he wasn't even 100% yet.
I think it's more logical to expect the gap between the two to shift even more this year giving Ronnie towards 20 carries a game to Ricky's 9-10.
Not to mention that Ricky is 32 years old now...
Parcells is the same guy who kept putting Julius Jones out on the field after Marion Barber had proven his superiority to the general public. The philosophy in place right now seems to point to limiting touches to maximize effectiveness. Ronnie may get the majority of the carries, but don't be surprised when you need a touchdown on Sunday and it's Ricky Williams carrying/catching the ball inside the 10 yard line.
