You don’t think Bell’s body is in better shape now than opposed  to if he took 400 nfl quality hits in a season?

Crowell averaged 5.5 ypc and they improved their oline.  I don’t think he will be Bell on the Steelers but he is still a good Rb.

 

It was 4.8, and a third of his yards for the season came in one game on 15 carries.  His ypc is not an accurate reflection of his performance behind that line.

Crowell's average was that high thanks to 3 monster games.  And did they improve their OL?

I really hope Bell still does the backfield hesitation crap he got away with behind Pittsburgh's elite line. Space will collapse behind the Jet's subpar line, and we'll get a lot of solid hits on him.

His first carry will result in a tackle for a 1 yard loss. Don't fret.

First carry will be his last. He'll throw the ball into the stands and run off, screaming all the way into the locker room.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Bell is injured early on in 2019. The Jets O line sure isn’t as good as the Steelers. That could be problematic for Bell.

I agree with both points.    Every team improved their Oline in the offseason on paper.   

 

Khalil was a good get for them, assuming he stays healthy at center, which isn't a great spot for a battered veteran.   That really saved their butts.  I have to admire the guys strategy, he announces retirement, loses a bunch of weight quickly to show that he's enjoying civilian life, but then slowly gains it back and stays in playing shape.  He skips all the OTA's and most of training camp and then has an "epiphany" that he really is gonna miss football so he signs a one year deal for $8.5 million and moves to the east coast to play in NY.   

 

I woulda done it the exact same way.

 

As far as LeVeon goes, we will be at full strength on defense opening day.   Good luck to anyone going up against our D who hasn't played in 2 years.   If he had a killer passing attack behind him and an experienced Oline that's played together for a few years, I might be worried.   But he doesn't.  He's toast.

Le"Veon Bells 1st carry since 2017 will be against the Bills. We is not "participating" in the Preseason. Is this good for the Bills, will he be rusty or football shape for the 1st game? The last game he played where he held out was against the Cleveland Browns in 2017. He had 10 carries for 32 yards and 6 receptions for 15 yards. This could bode well for the Bills. The Steelers barely won 21-18 against the Browns who went 0-16.

 

I think the Jets will win unfortunately.

I disagree with that.  He was healthy last year and was really bad.

He is into, according to some on this board, the most important thing the money.

If the Bills special teams show up in this game, they should win.

They took Roberts from them, who killed them in the loss last year.

He'll average 2.something in that game.

Yeah, it'll be that classic "oh look at our shiny new toy" scenario and then nothing exciting will happen for Jets fans. 😍

I think people forget how good he was when he was with the steelers, when he is on his game I would put him as a top 2 back in the league.

Really going to be interesting to see if he is compatible with the new offense and o line

I guess that I am not as worried as some of the rest of you.

 

I'm sorry, I just don't believe that an NFL running back, no matter how elite, can just step back in to that high level game conditions after sitting out for 22 months.

 

He always did hesitate before bursting through a hole in the line, I just think that his inevitable "rust" will effect him.

 

Especially after sitting out the pre-season.

Anyone willing to sit out that long for any job doesn’t really love the job. That’s why I didn’t want him either and I’m not surprised he missed off-season stuff and is skipping pre-season.
