If Saban takes the job, how long do you think he takes to call Ricky?

    My guess is that he'll be seeking out Williams before the end of the day. Saban is smart enough to know that Ricky is a franchise running back who can make this team much better right away. If he lets Ricky know that he won't be overused and abused like during the Wannstedt era, I really think we'll have a chance of having him back in 2005. That would really be the best Christmas present of all!

    No phone calls will be made, Ricky will never be in a Phins uniform again. Ricky already missed the deadline that would let him play next year.

    are you nuts?

    You must be crazy...if Saban brings in Ricky right away that would be a TERRIBLE start for him!!!!!!!!! Maybe a couple fans will forgive Ricky but AT BEST 50% of the fans would already HATE him for doing that. Ricky coming back to the dolphins is such a controversial subject, so many fans would be VERY upset with that move and Saban DOES NOT want to start off on a bad note..you must be nuts if you think he would bring back an idiot who turned his back on his team,fans,and coach. ESPECIALLY after the 60minutes thing you think theres ANY possibility that the dolphins or saban would want ricky?? youre out of your mind. Saban will take over and make the dolphins HIS team, the way he wants it. He will not bring back the ugly past of our franchise. It will be an entirely new miami dolphins team, and Ricky will NOT be a part of it, no way in hell.

    The NFL will accomodate him anytime he wants to play.....Ricky makes the league a better product and they know this. If he wants to play in 2005, you'll see him on the field.

    How does letting a pothead back into the NFL help make the league a better product?

    People like you need to get over your anger. As much as the fans hated Wannstedt, can you imagine being a player on the team or was constantly overworked and abused? Any player in Ricky's shoes would have walked as well.

    As for the 60 minutes interview, I'm not sure what you find problem with there....Ricky represented himself well and spoke with class. He never once dissed the organization or any of it's personnel.

    This team needs Ricky back ASAP and I can guarantee you Saban knows this. He'll make every effort to bring him back if given the opportunity to lead this team.

    So what if he got caught smoking pot? Does this make him any worse than hundreds of other players in the league who successfully disguise their usage?

    You got to be kidding, Ricky is a self confessed pot smokers that already stated that other NFL players used drugs and conceal it also.

    Do you think that the NFL thinks he is good for them???? :confused:

    You're as high as Ricky is. Saban is a total class act, a disciplinarian, and a man of values. If you think he would let someone like Ricky anywhere near Pro Player Stadium, let alone as a actual player of the team, you need a reality check. Saban demands that his players not only play the game well but that they also present themselves as upstanding members of society to the outside world when off the field. He would hate having someone like Ricky associated with his team.

    My point exactly....this is something Ricky has always done. He has given 110% to every team he has been on and given his time and money to help the community on a continual basis. I really can't believe that some of you have such a hatred towards him....if it's that strong, you better find a new team to root for as Saban will make every effort to bring Ricky back in the fold.

    Look, when Ricky was here he was a stud, nobody can deny this fact. Saban "could" give him a helmet since the sins were committed with the prior admin. They can give him all kinds of ethical clauses to sign to save face.

    Honestly, I know Ricky is basically a jag off but who wouldnt love to have that guy in your backfield?

    As far as the NFL they would take him back in a skinny minute because Ricky IS a superstar and most fans NFL wide would like to see him return to the game.

    Do I hope he returns to the Fins? No, take your freak show to the Raiders.

    from what ive heard about saban he would not want a guy that is unwilling to work. love him or hate him ricky is a quitter. coaches dont like quitters.

    Ladanian Thomilson is heavily used by the Chargers and he hasnt quit. Im not positive but I think LT touched the ball alot more than Ricky did last year.

    If Ricky would have retired following the season instead of quitting a week before TC it would have been a whole different story.

    I'm not kidding at all...if he takes the job, I hope someone asks him about it at the press conference. Maybe that will put all you doubters to rest as he tells all about his intentions to bring Ricky out of retirement.

    Precisely why he would want him....Ricky was the hardest working guy on this team all of last year and his dedication set an example for the rest of the team to follow. That's an aspect which has sorely been lacking this season and Ricky would instantly bring it back with his return.

    Ricky looked like a fool, unapologetic, expressions a 5 yr. old would make absolute craziness to even think about him coming back IMO.

    Uh, I guess you're forgetting the part where Ricky is a drug addict and has mental disorders that he refuses to take his medicine or seek help for. Again, Saban will have absolutely nothing to do with someone who can't present themselves as a decent human being, regardless of their skills on the field.

    He is not a drug addict....he smokes some weed....so what? If this was a reason for everyone not to work, we'd have a 70% unemployment rate in this country. I'd actually be much more concerned if he was continuously popping pills instead of smoking marijuana.

    Ricky is a quitter. He was more concerned about how people would view him as a pot smoker than taking reponsibility for his actions and remain on the team. Saban won't touch him with a 10' pole.

    Ricky was a hard worker but when he quit one of the reasons he quit was because he didnt want to carry the ball as much, that is a guy who isnt willing to work overtime to get the job done. Nobody would look at Ricky anymore for an example of hard work.

    Weed is an illegal drug. Ricky is addicted to weed. That by definition makes him a drug addict. It's hard to take your opinion on this seriously if you won't even face simple facts.

    Listen, none of us hate Ricky the player, we hate Ricky the person. The guy is messed up, until he gets his head straight(if he ever does) then he needs to stay away from the game of football.

    I don't think anyone gets addicted to smoking pot. Weed is a choice that people make and has no addicting qualities like alcohol, caffeeine, or nicotine does. Anyone who enjoys marijuana will tell you this....most just choose not to quit because they know its a ridiculous fact that this "drug" is illegal.

    He's not messed up at all.....he's actually one of the most intelligent athletes of the modern era. Taking the year off away from the mess we had here this year was a very smart move. It forced reorganization on the team and probably extended his potential playing years by 3-4 on the tail end. Dolphin fans should be praising this guy not bashing him....and I'm at a lose why many of you choose the second option. I just hope you accept him back with open arms if Saban gets the job and is successful luring him out of "retirement".

    Wrong. When a user begins to seek out and take the drug compulsively, that person is said to be dependent or addicted to the drug.

    Is it me or did you just admit you're a marijuana user? My guess is you're on the stuff right now.

    Saban would not want to contact ricky, he is to unstable and unpredictable. He might agree to come back and then a week later just not return calls and never show up, actions like that.
