    And the next season, too. He fell off that next season if I remember right. Wanny ran everything Lamar Smith had left in his tank that game.

    One of the more under appreciated Dolphins of the last 20 years. He wasn’t great, but Fiedler was a battler. I always liked him too.

    Speaking of Fieldler, the NFL Network is playing the Monday Night Miracle now. It’s making me sick watching it.

    Good thing he learned his lesson with Ricky Williams. You know, the same guy he traded two first-round picks for and decided to use him for half of his offense? God, what a terrible coach he was.

    I liked Fiedler more than most. He would have been appreciated a little more if he didn't follow a legend. Lacked the measurables but was overflowing with grit and was a really underrated athlete.

    Seriously. Everyone was completely shocked and reeling when he abruptly retired, but I remember reading the headline and and not being as surprised as I should have been and thinking immediately that it was because he didn’t want to get ground into the dirt again. Those were some terrible offenses outside of Ricky.

    Those years were insane. Wanny wouldn't think twice to handing off to Ricky 35....40+ times a game. I think his average per rush went from 4.8 in 02 to around 3.5 in 03. He was being completely used and abused. I was with ya...not surprised when he retired right before camp in 04.

    Jay Fiedler was hot garbage that wasted a championship caliber defense and an 1800 yard season from Ricky Williams

    I agree that he overused Ricky, but Ricky quitting was because Ricky wanted to smoke weed. Wanny’s just being used as an excuse. Ricky liked weed more than playing football. Is what it is. The only regret I have in the whole thing was burning his jersey only for him to come back later.(Leaving me wishing I had a number 34 jersey)

    Jay Fielder was garbage. It's amazing reading all these RT17 haters praise him....

    Fiedler was no where near good enough. But that JJ/Wanny early 2000’s defense is easily the most overrated unit in this franchise’s recent history.

    Fiedler was actually playing good football before he broke his thumb that season. His injury, and the subsequent deployment of Ray Lucas, is what ultimately ****ed us over that year.
