You could say that, but then you look at a team like the Patriots.

They, as a team (players and all), would not let anyone get a big head or over-inflated ego. They truly buy into the TEAM concept as opposed to the individual-great-players-together pov. Listening to interviews with the Patriot players, they just don't let anyone get bigger than the team.

Personally, I think the Texans look at a LOT more than just talent when they evaluate a player, and that is fantastic.

Even tho' T.O. is all that, I wouldn't trade him for A.J. and his future potential.

T.O. - Mr. Mouth - is about ego - HIS.

A.J. - Mr. Quiet - is about the team.

Teams win, and individuals lose....(most of the time!)

Ricky is a kind of person that you will never want to know. He doesn't even deserve to play any kind of football again. He is a HUGE mental case.

Here is a recent picture of him:

Ricky looks alot like Earl Campbell with that beard. Too bad he doesn't act more like Earl.

Williams does not want to play anymore (or so he says this week) any team that even thinks of dealing with this weirdo is desperate (see the Bears and the Jeff George signing)

I also disagree with the idea that he's minus the franchise price. he may be a headcase, but the Dolphins aren't going to give him up for nothing. There will be at LEAST a few teams willing to bid for him.

It's just not worth it. Although admittedly, it'd be interesting to actually have a running back who doesn't get hurt every single game....

I have to disagree.. Look at umm.... oh crud... I cant think of his name. Someone help me out here... He WAS on the Cowboys until he went on suicide watch or something... (his name on the tip of my tongue and I cant say it). He wasnt as good as ricky per say, but his value dropped like a brick. Sigh.. Can someone help me out with his name, its going to drive me nuts now.

I wish we could get Shaun Alexander away from Seattle.

Alexander would be good, but Lamont Jordan is an animal. Thats the kind of back this team needs, and he would be at less of a cost than other FAs. The guy is quick, adn built like a wall. We need a guy that can move, but then get yards after the contact is made. The Edge wont be here, if the bengals were smart they would resign Rudi, Alexander will cost too much, Henry gets hurt too much, Ricky is always on the wacky tobaccy, so I say Jordan.
