    I don't think Ronnie is dumb enough to ignore rehab. I also don't think our coaches are dumb enough to not make sure hes doing all the rehab he needs to be doing. Nobody's rushing him back.

    The recovery time is def not the same time for everyone. Also, a complete tear of all 3 ligaments is also diff in terms of recovery than a partial (which I believe Ronnie had).

    He'll take his time and let Ricky take the bulk for as long as he has to. No rush Ronnie, come back whenever your ready and 100%.

    I think Beck took that crown from him.

    Bingo. We know what he can do, and he knows what he can do. The question is whether or not he's healthy enough to do it. He knows what's at stake, and he's not an idiot. Not a big deal here.

    And let the morons call him a bust. It'll motivate him further.

    I think its definately important for Brown to not rush back, We need him for the next couple of years, so theres no sense in rushing him back, especially if Ricky is here and healthy. Get him some action early, but don't give him the full load until probably the midway part of the season depending on how he feels.

    I think there is a lot of pressure on Brown. Or at least perceived pressure from the new regime. While they can look at film and see what he can do, the real question is can he get past the injury bug and move on from here. At least that's what I think the new regime is asking.

    I also like most of us here would rather see Ricky take most of the carries early in the season. We know from repeated history that coming back from an ACL tear takes at least a full year (not a full season, but a full calendar year). That full year will be a till what November.

    Its great that he's getting advice from players who's had that happen to them. He's a hard worker, i'm sure he's going to keep rehabbing it and listen to the doctors and coaches. Hopefully they ease him in next year. They saw he has pro bowl talent, they're not going to rush him back hopefully.

    i know Ricky is a sore subject for some fans, but i think a healthy and motivated Ricky will go along way to the recovery and development of Ronnie. i would be happy with each getting about 800 yards each with Ronnie taking the bulk of the load by the end of the year. it could launch him into an incredible year next year.
