    In an interview he said that he felt he had a good game lol. Pretty sad. Good luck to him in the future though...

    I imagine that Ricky is a lot like Shawn Alexander. They need the first few carries to get going. Then they bring it. Ricky only got 4 carries.

    Ricky started his 1st game back from suspension last year with 5 carries for 8 yards. He did just fine after getting back up to speed.

    I do not know much about the CFL, but i was under the impression that the field was wider then an NFL field. If this is true is a wider field of benefit to a speed rusher like Willie Parker as there is more chance to break to the outside or does it favor a power back like Bettis as the D needs to cover more ground and will inevitably surrender more field in front?
