Yea I know, I just saw that on ESPN, I think that is so funny. For fantasy football reasons, who do yall think will be the starting running back for Miami.

Travis Minor will be the starter unless Ricky have a change of heart. Just think if Eddie George could\'ve waited a couple more days he will have made more money.

We all knew this guy had no heart and now he proved it for the last time.

Thank God Deuce fell. If NFL scouts had been Ole Miss fans we\'d have never even sniffed him. All of his durability questions were hilarious to those of us in the know, because even though he was banged up he never quit, and made outstanding plays.

For those of you who watched him in college, does anyone remember the time he outran a wide receiver to catch a deep pass on a post route? The ball should have been an over throw, and he just went and got it. One of those \"wow\" moments when you realize a guy is special.

It\'s not a question of whether or not the Saints will win the Super Bowl this year. It\'s a question of which Saint will be the MVP of the game.

What do you mean I\'m not supposed to snort the granola?

When I first read it somewhere else I first thought it was Indianapolis\' Ricky Williams. Definitely the shocker of the weekend.
Good for him, he never really wanted to play football. I never really cared how well he did in Miami after the first season (and then only because it was Saints-related).
Fantasy Football Impact: Miami may trade for a RB - although they will bleed if they do. The Vikings are very happy with Otis Smith\' development and they have a pass catching back in Moe Williams, so they might listen to an offer for Michael Bennett.
Bennett and Williams couldn\'t be much more different as far as running backs are concerned, but Travis Minor is clearly not the answer in Miami (although I added him to my FF team - just in case ).

So here\'s a question- How does the loss of Ricky Williams affect their starting quarterback battle? The lack of a proven running game puts a lot more pressure on the qb to perform. Fiedler can handle the pressure, but he\'s proven he can\'t perform. Feeley\'s never performed better than Fiedler.

If someone doesn\'t step up,the Dolphins are screwed.

I\'ve read the story 10 times on ESPN\'s site and I still don\'t believe it. At 27, amking MILLIONS of dollars a year, how do you just walk. I know money isn\'t everything, but c\'mon! 5 more years in the league and the guy could travel in Asia forever. I dunno, I think it\'s nuts.

So far it is just one source - Dan Le Batard for the Miami Herald. ESPN, CBS etc. all report that Ricky will retire, but they all refer to him.
I can and do believe it, but it is not 100%.
At least the information doesn\'t come from someone nicknamed \"Curveball\". :P
