Last night CBC announcer Mark Lee kept referring to Ricky Williams as a "superstar". And the headlines for last nights game are that the Stampeders ruined "Ricky's return"?
Oh please. Ricky has shown nothing to be called a superstar in the CFL. He played okay last night. But so did Jeff Johnson when he had the chance. And nobody came close to Joffery Reynolds performance.
If you ask me the Argos giving the ball to Ricky so much in the first half probably got the passing game out of sync. They had one drive that took up ten minutes, and they came away with nothing in the end.
In the CFL you win with passing. Running the ball is dangerous because if you get stuffed on first down, as Ricky was several times, you face second and long. Which is what happened to the Argos last night.
So enough of Ricky. He is part of the show. Not the show.
