If Ricky Williams was working with Calgary's O-Line, his average would probably be around 6.0
Thats been his major downfall so far this season. His offensive line. Most games you look at it and the second he touches the ball theres a man in the backfield. So he has to make a move just to get past the line of scrimmage. His O-line needs to step up their play.
Also, he's always been a running back where he pounds away at you the first 2 quarters, and then on his 15th, 16th carry he starts breaking off the runs. Just in the CFL, it's hard to give a running back 16 carries when his O-Line doesn't allow them to because it goes for negative yards.
As the season goes on and the O-Line gets more chemistry with Ricky and things start working, you'll see that average go up substantially.
It also hasn't help his O-Line has gone against the best D-Line in the league already 2 times this season. The Bombers are a beast on the D-Line with Ron Warner, Gavin Walls, Canada and Doug Brown.
I really hope Edmontons run defense stiffens up by the time Toronto comes into town because Ricky will run wild on it. When AJ Gass and Joe Montford get some games together, their run D will be like last year.
