i have beena big believer in william green since he was drafted but he hasnt shown me anything spectacular yet and now it is looking bad for his future. do you think he can come back from all of these problems and become a top rb in the nfl? maybe with another team?

He has all the tools needed to be a great RB. He just doesnt seem like he wants it that bad. When he plays his hardest and stays out of trouble he can be a top 10 RB. Its all up to him as to how he succeeds in the NFL

I think he's another Lawrence Phillips (Rams #1 pick a few years ago). He couldn't stay out of trouble and was a huge bust after he had been touted as "the next Jim Brown". I can see Green going the same way. Remember Bam Morris, too? Another troubled player with a ton of talent. The drug business may make a lot of money, but so does the NFL and the NFL is completely legal.

Here's the thing: addicts in general like only one thing. And for Green that thing doesn't seem to be football. He'll probably clean up his act eventually after he bottoms out, and then he will have lost his football edge and look strikingly similar to emmitt upon his return.

While I don't share the Super Freak's optimism for William Green's return, I believe that as long as the fans don't run him out of Cleveland and Butch Davis is the coach of that team, he will always get an opportunity to play. Whether that means he's going to be any good or not is up in the air. At the end of last season he looked great, but this season, even when healthy, he looked like ...Lawrence Phillips (not so good).

Hopefully he will clean up his act, because he certainly has potential to be a good RB.

I won't touch him with a 10-foot pole next year.

Another ditto.

He may have a decent future in the league, but it probably won't be next season.
