Why is Ricky Williams "sucking" in the CFL?

Hey Guys:

What do you see as the reason(s) that Ricky Williams is having less than a spectacular stint in the CFL? I am not here to piss anyone off this time; I am truly interested in your opinions. Here are his stats after 4 games:
53 carries
214 yards
4.0 Ave.
1 touchdown

Well if I am not mistaken, he is on a pass happy team and his team also has another pretty good back, I think.

4 yrd average isnt so bad. he needs to get more touches for his #'s to improve. just look at last years stats for miami, he didnt start having decent stats until late in the season.

The other pretty good running back is John Avery. He was a high NFL draft pick who has sat every game since William's arrival.

Re: Why is Ricky Williams "sucking" in the CFL?

How many yards do they need to get a first down? Is 4yrds really that great up there?

Yeah, I mean if he is getting the majority of the carries, and he only has 53 for four games, then that's just because his team is passing alot more. Hm, I remember seeing a post from a super cool awesome guy, suggesting that a bit earlier...lol. Even the fact that he has one touchdown shouldn't be too alarming because he has only ran for 214 yards. Portis had a dry spell like that last year, when he didn't get in the end zone for a while.

Like the NFL you need 10 yards for a first down but have only 3 downs to get it. Right now, Williams is sitting at 5th overall in rushing yards.

Let's also remember he's not running behind an NFL quality line.

That's why he is still 5th in rushing with such low numbers. I guess they are not that low in CFL standards. It is also early in the season, I am assuming his yards/game will go up.

While that is true he is also not running against an NFL quality defense. That to me makes up for the non-NFL quality o-line. Seems to me that with all things being equal, he should be absolutely dominant.

only 3 downs, and less running % overall in comparision to the NFL. It's just a different game, not to mention ricky might have been out of shape, unclear on the scheme, etc. He's not the pounder he was before his first suspension.

What will happen to William's stock in the NFL should he not improve? What kind of line did he run behind in Miami?

imo he doesnt have a chance in hell at making anymore than the vet min when/if he comes back to the nfl. If somebody does give him a shot it will surely be an incentive laden contract. maybe oakland will give him a shot, they seem to like those hard headed players.

Re: Why is Ricky Williams "sucking" in the CFL?

What kind of numbers do you suppose he would have to post in the CFL before he even gets another look in the NFL? For argument's sake, let's assume that the guy is in shape ( I heard that he dropped below 200 LBS to play against the smaller but faster CFL linebackers) and he is playing his hardest but runs below 1000 yards, or doesn't win the CFL rushing title, what does that say about him? How can a player go downhill that quickly? Or, do you think he came into the CFL thinking he was going to blow everyone away?
