ACL injuries, nd linfranc fractures have nothing to do with not being in shape. Also, Ronnie has not had recurring ankle, or shoulder, or hamstring problems. He's had fluke injuries and there is no way that you can say because he had those injuries that he will get hurt again this season.

Final point: If Miami wants to win in 2010, they keep Brown. If they get rid of him, they drop to 3rd in the division.

Being in shape and being durable are two different things.

So then you can say he will play all 16 games?

Running backs are probably the easiest position to replace on offense. Also, maybe they keep Brown this year and make the playoffs.

But he's probably gone next year anyway.

I'd rather take the 2nd round pick and continue building this team.

Couldn't disagree more. Running backs can be found anywhere in the draft. 1,000 yards isn't difficult to accomplish, and Brown has done it one time. He's injury prone, whether you want to admit it or not.

I don't want to pay a 29 year old running back with an old knee injury (a serious one no less) and an old foot injury (also a serious one).

Get what you can and let's get someone younger in here this weekend.

time to go Ronnie....

got outplayed by a 33 year old. ricky is more durable than ronnie, and is cheaper.

at the rate former first round picks are getting dealt (for 5th rounders), though, phins would be lucky to get even a 3rd for him.

Spiller, please....

Not sure about that. Ricky looked like he lost a lot of steam the last couple games of the season.

Still though, he ran for 100 yards in the first three games that he started after the Brown injury. Brown only ran for 100 yards or more in a total of 2 games in the 9 games that he started.

I am not disagreeing with you, but I wonder what the season would have been like if Williams was the starter and taking the bulk of the carries and having Ronnie be "change up" running back.

In the 8 games that Ricky played without Ronnie he averaged almost 90 yards a game. He banged up his shoulder I believe in the Texans game and was still banged up going into the last game of the year against Pittsburgh.

Ricky can't carry the load at 33 years old, but I still like having Ricky around because for 4-5 games, he still can get the job done.

Phins, I know you love Ronnie, but the injury factor is hard to overlook and cannot be ignored.

Brown's numbers show he had just as many bad games as good games. Its unbelievable that based on those numbers people think the Fins will only win if Brown is here.

Williams had more 20+ yard runs and a better average. You're telling me he can't take Brown's role in the Wildcat and a young back can't come to get grind out the tough yards?

Every fact has shown that Brown's history is injury filled and that Miami can win games with or without him.

Miami isnt winning anything until they have effective pass rushers, a capable NT, and a capable free safety.
