Second Hand Smoke
Seems as though Ricky Williams has used up his nine lives already. That certainly seems like the number of NFL drug tests that he has failed during his career. Amazing to me that he is given yet another chance in a league that seems so image conscious. On Monday, I read the humble post-game quotes by Broncos running back Selvin Young. What he said made me wish that there were more players like him. Players just thankful for the opportunity to play in the NFL, players who didn't feel as if the world owed them anything. They are quotes you would never read form Ricky Williams, or Travis Henry for that matter.
You can have Ricky Williams. Give me Selvin Young any day of the week.
