Rushing him back too fast? He got STOMPED on by Timmons. Watch it again, even in s-l-o-w motion. If a fine is not in order, I think "Good-All" is smoking the green stuff.

Ricky looked like he was in great shape. Actually stronger than he did in 2005. He would have still got hurt if was playing all year. I would bring this guy back next year for insurance for Ronnie.

There is not a player in the entire NFL that could have endured being stomped on by Timmons, period! I'm surprised it's just a torn pectoral muscle. Could have been a lot worse. Someone needs to look into this.

There is NO question that it was intentional...

The Steelers are known for this kind of stuff...remember what they did to Carson Palmer in the playoffs a few years back...and that was intentional as well.

It's not Ricky's fault. You can BLATANTLY see that jerk steps on his back on purpose. I do however sense Karma maybe coming back around to bite Ricky in the rear.

Good news everyone: NFL is screwing everyone again. No wonder NASCAR is catching up to the NFL. Cable subscribers cut off from NFL's big game
Dallas-Green Bay matchup is on NFL Network, which, thanks to a bitter dispute, isn't offered by most major cable systems. But if you have a satellite dish -- enjoy! It's 1967 all over again.

It is late November 2007 and the NFC is hours away from its most important game of its season.
Do you know where your Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys are?
Chances are, they won't be on your home television screen. When the 10-1 Packers play the 10-1 Cowboys at Texas Stadium on Thursday evening, CBS, NBC, Fox and ESPN will be on the inactive list. The game will be carried live nationally only on the NFL Network, which is available in about 35 million households in the U.S.-- most of them DirecTV and Dish Network subscribers.
Because of a bitter stalemate between the NFL and Big Cable over money, the 4-year-old NFL Network remains primarily a satellite-only experience. Such major cable operators as Cablevision, Charter, Comcast and Time Warner have refused the NFL's demand to be paid about 70 cents per subscriber for the NFL Network, which the cable companies consider exorbitant.
That wasn't a big deal until the league decided in 2006 to hand the NFL Network eight prime-time games each season.

Through the eyes of humiliated fans it must be the opponents fault, those barbarians! It's not like RW was in the way or anything and football is a low-contact sport. How about we charge the Steeler with assault? Would that make you feel better? That is all this is about - your pathetic dolfan feelings.

Run Ricky run! Hahahahahahahahahaha.

Good question??? If anyone knows why please reply! If Cam thinks he is to slight of build to handle the blitzing LBs. Why was he drafted in an early round #71 overall? The scouting reports say that he has great speed and hands. Perhaps Cameron should try him as a receiver.

ha ha ha. oh come on.
cry babies.
you knew he was only going to play for a second. its the only way he can get out of repaying the money hes already spent on a lifetime supply of weed.
for you all to blame someone else is so childish. watch the replay. they guy was chasing after a lose ball. if it were reversed, you all would see it differently. when you are chasing a ball on a monsoon soaked field you cant accurately place your balerina feet.
too many of you losers "counted" on the pot head to save your team. somehow that really sends a message to our youth. be a pot head and the dolphin fans will admire and love you. after all they have no one else to admire.

What's with all this whining? In the rush to recover a fumbled ball, NO player is looking to avoid contact with another player. If you're looking for courtesy on the field when a fumble occurs, then you are truly in fantasy land! Or, should I say, a Dolphins' fan. Football is a man's sport...unlike ice skating, ballet, etc. With expectations of courtesy during a fumble is what you expect, then no wonder the "Dolflubs" are 0-11! Next time tell Ricky to put a skirt on a stick to be a cheerleader on the sidelines so he won't get hurt!
