Well Ill be in the 1% along with Cheesehead I think who would take Ricky over Shaun Alexander
My reason is that you know hes gonna get the carries... and with a better oline (it cant get worse) and Boston added to the receiving game It means more holes should be opend up for him... Last year hes was dropped behind the line on 35% of his carries which is a lot.
I own both Alexander and Ricky so this is an opinion based on waht I see.
dont forget about me!
I think Ricky should have a very good year this year, for the reasons Heat mentioned above. Their O-line really is going to be better this year, as it couldnt have been any worse than it was last year. McKinney and Wade Smith both have an extra year under their belts, they got Jeno James from CAR in FA, and they drafted Vernon Carey who is a beast in the 1st rd. This wont be the same crappy line from last year.
And teams really wont be able to stack the box w/ Boston, Chambers, and McMichael. If Feely and his deep ball can find a way to win the starting job, that creates an aspect of the offense that MIA hasnt had for awhile. D's wont be able to have everyone focused on Ricky like they did last year, and if the safeties come up, they will just get burned on the pass.
