I totally agree, based on performance alone Avery was far better than Williams. However, is that due to the fact that he is a CFL veteran and knows the Argo offense better as well as how to utilize the CFL rules, or is it just the Ricky is overhyped and not that great?
Personally, I think Ricky will be a force later in the season when (or if) he finally tunes himself into the canadian game. The attitude that I have seen from him in interviews seems to show little urgency towards getting things in gear right away. To me it seems that he is almost complacent believing that everything will pan out. I dont think that he is a superior talent to the existing CFL tailbacks, and only time will tell how it all ends up. I think its a big risk however, because of the resume that he brings to the team, people are expecting him to be the CFL rushing leader, and anything less could be seen as a failure. Any way that you look at it, its all going to just get more interesting from here on in.
