"Yeah good good to have a little depth there because we want him playing the left tackle for a long time. And that leads us into this week. So with all the Cova craziness are scheduled, did change We were supposed to be playing the broncos chargers correct broncos. Oh, the death right. The DENVER broncos was playing at Denver. That is now the New York jets are favorites. Our favorite team right now so The Liane Bell Less Adam gaces are coming to town. Yes and. A very, very winnable game for us. So before we get into previewing the jets game I, didn't want to talk about another little bit of Jet News. That's. Probably blowing up your news feeds and your sports streams lady on Bell being released by the jets and the dolphins are on the short list of teams that could sign him. I'm for it I. Think it makes a lot of sense. I'm not saying he's GonNa come in here and be a superstar but. He was you know one of these, not very far removed from being one of the best of the NFL he's still on thirty. You doesn't have a ton of tread on the tires off. You can get him at a reasonable price on this offense with the needs that we have at the running back position James I. I don't want to interrupt your rant. But. I Love Eon Bell has chosen the chiefs. This is a breaking news not breaking for the people listening because we're recording this. You know seven o'clock eastern on Thursday and. About fifteen minutes ago, Levy on bell chose the chiefs well, that makes more sense for him. I was wondering. When I saw the two teams that were on there, I'm clearly the chiefs are much closer to winning the bowl. This season. and. That made more sense for him to do stay there goes my Clyde Edwards Allegra picks for my fa- terrible fantasy teams. Yeah. He was looking pretty good of that that I. anyway. Well, that's kind of disappointing. That Can. Lead. US. Out Go with not getting him like I would I would've if the if the team felt like he was a good fit and wasn't going to be a problem in the locker room and that and I you know the guy has the talent has shown the talent. So if the Me I'm I'm trusting the process if the team wanted to bring him in I'd be excited to have him. But not getting him is not like burst. That's not like I'm not gonNa cry that's not like missing out onto or something which would have been much sadder. Right, agreed. Well. Okay. So that leads us into next week's the levy on bell less jets are coming to town is a flacco starting he is. Okay. All Right Joe. Joe FLACCO led jets as as someone as someone who has to play the jets. Who would you rather have I guess he. F- LACO has no no upside. Right like Darnold is has rather darnold 'cause he's so he's he's clearly shaken right now it would be an. There's way more likelihood of getting six is often than there are than there is a flacco beflay was not going to throw the BALL DIV can't. It's just GonNa be crowder underneath and that's it. I'm really not worried about either one of them just the the comedy aspect of it will be would be higher word Sam Darnold I agree. That's unfortunate too you. Look at us. Look at us here. We're like we're like new money were overall. Wins Game and we're all like who pooing another or early run franchise. I mean it is the jets. So so it is Kinda Fun but. I I don't think it makes much of a difference I think flacco probably gives them a better chance of winning because darnold been so awful. But Yeah I don't think in the long run. We should win this game. We should win and handle the if we don't. I'm going to start. The negative. The NAYSAYERS IS GONNA go to pick up again real quick. I'll again, just don't level set where a young team. That's where this is. The first time we're coming into a game is heavy favorites. I don't see this as a team as looking past anything but. It's the NFL on anything can happen I expect to win. I. Expect to cover the ten point spread I mean ten point spread. That's a heck of a line but the jets are terrible and we should beat them and yeah, I'll be so I'll be so mad if we lose. Yeah they got I mean they were just for to recap there week last week they were. They were close with Arizona for a while and then they they ended up getting blown out in the second half finished up thirty, two ten. flacco looked very inept Not Not surprisingly. His Eerie. Similarities to the His last season here with Tannahill and Osweiler. As. The the quarterback combination so yeah, I'm. I don't think they're going to be able to do much from an offensive standpoint and their defense is not good I you know. I I. Feel Bad picking them have done as well when I picked them but I the dolphins are gonNA. They should put up thirty one points and I don't see the jet scoring more than seventeen in this game that your final are you going there? Everyone thirty seventeen..

"Little bit or regression and Part of the season I don't I don't sound the alarm bells or anything like that because we know what New England's going to bring during the playoffs Out But just you know you just go off past experience with them in the moment that you doubt Tom Brady is the mullet that Tom Brady. Stuff's out and just Kinda Kinda winks at you and just goes. You don't know what you're talking about Dak Prescott on the other hand. Give the man Mano. Hey this guy guy. He is more than to me. More than earned The next contract. I don't know what Jerry Jones is waiting for You know they're going to have to pay Amari Cooper as well So so gift. These guys paid The other thing I'll be back in just dakyns to me back in in just if you just want a guy go out and and ball for you and make the right decisions and and be one of those quarterbacks that you don't have to worry about being on the five o'clock news and all those kinds of things Dr got and and Dacca's done everything that he's been asked to do And then some so bottom line data dakyns. He's a good quality quarterback and pay the man the money back years worth. My problem is definitely not with that Prescott. I think the guys a really good quarterback I've liked him Since he came in and obviously took over for Tony Romo would I question with the Dallas. Cowboys is WHO's leading them. Obviously obviously a Garrett and I'm not sold on Jason Garrett as far as the head coach goes and I think that ultimately that that's the big decision that Jerry Jones needs as to make moving forward. I agree one hundred percent with you. You GotTa Pay Dak Prescott. You GotTa Pay Mario Cooper. You've already paid equal Elliott and with that being said Ezekiel Elliott Elliott kind of underperformed this season so Dak Prescott is absolutely earning. His money is my point. Let's get this in here as well because because in the next segment like I said we like to go through every game and give our picks and analysis Green Bay packers and forty niners. You Got Aaron Rodgers who quietly having another productive season to be quite honest with you and Aaron Jones. Is that a lot to do with that Eleven touchdowns for that guy. You can use them in and out of the backfield world you can catch passes for your Davante. Adams hasn't been on the field so other guys had to step up a little bit. Jimmy G. Aaron Rodgers. How do you stand on these? These guys man I look. Aaron Rodgers speaks for himself. I mean that's what he's done what he has accomplished in this league now. Granted you and I talk one championship one suitable. Well you know what. That's one more super bowl than Dan. Marino one of my favorites of all time. So you know with bat being said you got the next kind of up and comer I believe in Jimmy Garoppolo and and moreover with San Francisco is that they they have a defense back in just flat out disrupt anything. You're trying to do that. Defensive Lines with both Just all sorts of havoc habit in pressure on the opposing quarterback I think this is. I think this could be the game of the day. The the Green Bay San Francisco game. I think it's going to be. I think it's going to be a really fun game to watch. He got two good quarterback too. Great quarterbacks you got you got a great defense and San Francisco So Oh you there. There's something going to happen in the paper today. We will see what I've been impressed with. Jimmy I gotTa tell you I mean games ames where he's had to step up and show up he has. He had four touchdown game against the cardinals. Once had four touchdown game against the cardinals twice so he did at once here. He didn't wants their he. He's to me. He's shown the he can make the place he can make the throws. He does have a really quality receiver and Emmanuel Sanders. I don't know if he's going to be able to go for him or not. I believe he is questionable So that that will obviously play a big factor but he does get kills back and I love that guy can really really make a huge impact on the game running game they do with no name. Guys Coleman Breed. I don't know if breed is going to be on the field. I know he's questionable as well. So injuries will play a little. Bit of a factor The forty niners are only a three point favorite but with that being said money is heavy on the forty niners today. So if you're a gambling man maybe take the packers on on that women because usually when the money's on one side You go the other direction but I really do like the forty niners a lot. I think there are really quality football team. That defense eventually gets after it. I think that that's going to be tougher. Aaron Rodgers and those guys to figure out that defense a little bit but What can you say to really good quarterbacks artifacts like you said what are your feelings on the browns after what happened with them? What are your feelings on the steelers with after the the whole ordeal that happened between those two teams will all work? I will work in reverse Oregon all talk about news I And you know you and I have talked about. This may be Mike Tomlin head coach. Pittsburgh steelers his best coaching job. He's done while he's there he doesn't can have a killer bee Big Band is is out with his injury all year. And they you know they got rid of. Ab they got Lady Liane Bell So for what Tomlin has done to get them to five hundred and in the hunt for the play offs. I I is nothing short of remarkable For that squad. Now you know I'm not having Marquees Pouncey or the next couple of games. It's GonNa hurt that. That guy. I is a dude as I like to say. He's not a Guy Dude and he brings. A Lotta attitude is certainly you could see his reaction the myles Garrett situation the other night but I think that's going to hurt them. Just a little bit but let's face it. They're playing the bungles there in Cincinnati. I think I think You know Pittsburgh should come out on top of that. But I think they're gonNA be okay. Consider considering what happened Against Cleveland Cleveland and they get to play the. JV Go squad. That is known as the Miami Dolphins I I think they're going to be okay today. But moving forward they got. They got games against in Pittsburgh coming up. They got game against the Ravens. I mean they got the they got some teams they can lose two and half a Mile Garrett who is a good defensive end Get pressure on the quarterback. I mean if you ever seen the guy without his shirt on holy smokes. I mean guys like chill about a granite That's that's going to hurt and then you have look you have the up and down play of the offense That goes I. It's just one of those things where you don't know which was offense is going to show up up. And then you know you're mentioning the weak spot without might be Jason Garrett. I think the week following Cleveland's Fred Kitchens. I think this guy. He's learning on the job. Obviously on the fly And it's just not a good mix With with what they have on with what they have personnel. I don't want to get this in here. Real quickly to Mitchell trubisky. We'll be starting for the Chicago. Bears your thoughts about him. I know he's regressed a little bit as well. Aw but is it him. Is it Nagy. Is it a combination of the two. What's going wrong for the bears? I'm just GONNA say real quick. I'd it's a combination of two. He's regretted Nagy's Kinda got conservative with the play calling but that's because the trubisky play on the field as well I. Yeah and I don't think he has all that many weapons Allen Robinson only his really good wide receiver. And I don't know man they got rid of Jordan Howard running back back so some things that have happened there to anyways. I do know the music's got take that posture. The cost we'll come back and we'll do our analysis of each and every game keep a close plus everybody. Mike Wilson Andy Door. It is the Dwarf on Sports. We can edition Brady at work with white to his three to the left in clinic..

"He brought a new in adds a new aspect of your offense that you probably never had before. Okay. So lady on bell phenomenal talent Antonio Brown. The thing about into brands even though his production was was matched in transcended by juju Smith Schuster this season. The one thing that you can't deny the attention that he drew from the opposing defense. Every single time. They they played anybody. He was double team triple teamed. I'll never forget watching some plays is I watched film of wanna say his three years ago. So we might be two thousand sixteen Steelers went to Baltimore and lost a game. That's not. That's not a crazy 'cause they don't do. Well, Baltimore typically. And I watched several plays with the ravens literally put four players on an assignment to take Brown out of specific plays. They had a linebacker drop underneath to the slant routes. They had a safety shattering down low. The cornerback was playing over the top. And they even wrote over the other safety his side as well. It was incredible. That's the kind of player he was he could change the way defense is approached the offense, and it opened up things for the other side. So it was players like Martavis Bryant last two years use misuse jer. The. The list goes on players. Antonio Brown has opened up has opened things up for on the opposite side of the field for him because he is just that good. But at the same time, I asked myself who were the gonna miss in the short term. That's I go back and forth James corner phenomenal season. He played amazing football. But at the same time both of his seasons have been both receive than football even plagued by injury knee injury into his rookie season to seventeen ended his year early last year high ankle sprain against the chargers. He had to sit out until weeks teen against the Browns. Wavy on bell was was hurt as well. But at the same time James Connor in terms of the short term who I miss. Yeah. That that's tough until you Brown. Jeez. Machines played. Well, this is where becomes pretty clear cut for me to answer the burning question, and that is. Liane bell Tonio Brown who they miss more based on who they have behind. This player is the easy answer for me in a shorter. Nets Antonio Brown as much as I literally threw up in my mouth watching him introduced as an Oakland raider today. Not because he's with a new team. But because of the things coming out of his mouth watching videos where he goes to Derrick cars house, and they're embracing each other. Oh, gosh. Spare me puke disgusting. Just I just leave such a bad taste in your mouth the way that he left of my it's I don't wanna get off on a tangent. But for the player that he was when he showed up was that. Now the Steelers have a huge void to fill. If they go into next season with James Connor one Jalen Samuels to and pick up another running back in the draft. Rath? They'll probably be okay. But at the same time Antonio Brown's gone, you have juju Smith Schuster you've second-year player, James Washington. You have Ryan Switzer going in his third season. He's finally going to have a whole season to hopefully be utilized in a better way than he was last year. And we know now that he Rogers contract told into two dozen nineteen so he's not a free agent. He's actually back with the Steelers. But that's it. That's it. It's almost like Judas misuse Stor James, Washington's a super unknown. And then you've got to Smurfs battling it out for the slot receiver position they need help ever Seaver. It's not as simple, and it's a different position. I understand that the running back physician is pretty much a solitary position you have one player a wide receiver. It's almost like they all worked together their own cohesive unit in a need each other to succeed because. Like, I said into a new brand true. Attention said that she issues to get a one on one matchup. They're going to need help. Now, they've already targeted a couple of players in free agency..
NFL: Le'veon Bell plans to join Jets for 4 years, $52.5M
"There's former Steelers running back on bell. We learned late Tuesday night. When the news broke that he's planning to sign with the New York Jets deal is for four years, fifty two and a half million thirty five million guaranteed. According to a source. What's it all mean? ESPN analyst Damien Woody says, it means that bell gambled with his career. And he didn't beat the house. Well, listen, you know, the man held out for years. He lost. He lost a bedroom. There you gotta you gotta understand. He he walked waves mobile fourteen million dollars in the franchise peg last year picking that you know, what I'm going to preserve myself. And I'm gonna I'm gonna come out after the season and get even bigger deal and it comes out, but he got less than what the franchise tag or what the Steelers were often them. So from that aspect, he he lost on this one. I'm with you. And I mean Louis and our just joking. I mean, no one's gonna cry. The man, certainly he he's he's wealthy beyond reason. And yet I just wonder how how does that play? How does a guy who's been excellent one of the very best at his position. How does he process that when he bet big on himself you missed a year in your prime, you left fourteen on the table, and you're getting less than that on an average like how does that manifest itself in guys based on what you've seen through the years? What did you gotta be heard a little bit? Because you know, the way the way it looks like is like maybe his market wasn't as big or maybe that many teams were interested in signing on Bill big deal. So listen kudos to the jets have been able to get on to me the best all purpose back in the National Football League. At the price of the he'll be a tremendous asset for the New York Jets and Sam Donaldson Alford. So Bravo to them. Does it surprise you that that that that there were other teams willing to give it, and we understand that running backs the depreciation, and we understand the wear and tear. That's all understood. But I'm just a little bit surprised that there was not someone else for Belen his agent to work off of in terms of negotiating were you surprised? Actually, I wasn't surprised you gotta look at a few factors one. This is a guy that could possibly, you know, one incident away from know from a long-term suspension. You got that in his background the fact that he sat out a year. So when you and the fact that he plays running back. So when you combine all those factors. I don't think there was a team out. There is willing to blow to halt to pay one in back. That's twenty-seven-year-old. Then it he's a great running back. But I don't know who you know. I think he'd just miscalculated the marketing with people which people will come. Liane bell rushing for five thousand three hundred yards thirty five touchdowns, and he also has three hundred twelve catches for twenty six hundred yards and seven has a receiver over the course of his career. His one hundred twenty nine yards from scrimmage per game over his career best Mark in the

"You don't need to do that. And the winner is. Disappointment. This is the guy who did you ever get paid to win a foursome? What was he even holding out for like, I think a forcible workforce them? Yeah. That's apparently always hold out for a force. Hey, look, he may not have gotten the big splashy contractors team may not be going to the playoffs. Maybe that's yet to be seen makes is getting a foursome. Yeah. He's going to get. Well, and also he's going to probably get a really fat contract from a dumb team. Well, yeah. On bell. But also lots of money going to the colts, right? I see the jets. The colts. Yeah. I can see the Jetsons because the way Sam darnold play this year, and my type of team that would add a big price free agent who has his prime. And Marley Marl. Amac was past his prime passes. Pete prime. Yeah. His last six he sat out a full year's last four in his last year. He played he was at three point eight yards per carry. Two years. It was almost an MVP. Joe have you ever been twenty-six before I'm twenty six right now. Well, when Joe is really being twenty twenty-six, and you're in the later part of that age group you'll understand pasture peak. Okay. So next Friday when I turned twenty seven. Yeah. Exactly. That's when you'll feel it. Thank you lay beyond bell past his prime has. No, you say he's done. I just think. I say he's past his prime. I'd say we we've seen his best already. That's all. He resigns before the end of the if he resigns before the season next year. I don't care who he is a top ten pick and fantasy. But he was the number one. That's still not you're you're kind of agreeing with me in a way, Brian I'll agree with because I've said this before I said this on the bull rush with Jeremy. And with Joe where if on bell signs with somebody he'll have a good season next year, but not a bell type season. Then you'll have one final really good year. But at that point he's gonna turn twenty nine and and twenty nine years old. He's going to have one good season left in them. And he's done like his he wasted a full year of the peak of his career by wasted. Or did he rest himself wasted wasted? I'm resting in the NFL is not arresting to get your body. Right is good. But taking an entire year off of playing football is never what about when you go to prison for two years. What would you call that? Yeah. But are we are we are? We really saying that lady on bell is a Michael Vick situation. Where Michael Vick was like an other worldly talent. Completely changing the way a position was playing on. Liane bells reincarnated Marshall, Faulk Christian McCaffrey absolutely completely different runners not to switch it off completely. But from a fairly super specked if you wanted to hold onto unbalanced say to keep a league, what team would you most want to see him signed with colts signed with the colts Texans fan. I would hate seeing that. But it's a fantasy fantasy football. I value. I want fantasy football to be a thing. Now because you said that I think the only argument though, that for me for lady on bell. When you look at people talk about like how much abuse he's taken how much running and catching these done all the tackles. You look what Adrian Peterson did this year. Thousand yards. I yeah, that's fair. Disproving the age of running backs like not everyone is going to be. Trash Joe, you know, what not only that. Also the myth of like you catch a knee injury or something you're done. Again. Adrian Peterson perfect example, how many people wrote him off after his ACL to how many fantasy owners sat there and went. Oh my God. That guy is a four fifth round pick. He went on to lead the league in rushing. Right. So winning MVP award. Exactly. These guys are different these days. That's why like whenever anybody does the NFL films loves to do these top ten quarterbacks of all time, or you know, top ten lineups of all time. And it's I will take modern day athletes versus athletes of the past any day of the week like no offence to those guys. Like, I know Andre Johnson tremendous talent. I would take the Andrey Hopkins over Andre Johnson all day. It's not like, that's I would if you're checking a decade thirty years ago versus the long enough time gap. I mean, they played together in the same Ross. Andre Johnson at his peak is every bit as good as the Andre Hawkins. He was he's incredible. He just never had the right quarterback. I find that. I will say this. Then I would go. I would definitely take the Andre Hopkins over Jerry Rice to yes..

"This. He's going with Dan Schwartzman. I don't think I've ever had an easier phrase to start a show off. Then Carolina Panthers defensive terrible really is watching Thursday night football. We actually have ourselves a good matchup, right? At least on paper a six to Carolina Panthers team traveling up north facing the five two and one Pittsburgh Steelers. You think it'll be good rothlisburger against Cam Newton. Both big guys. Steelers have always been known for defense alone. Last couple of years that hasn't been the case they lose all the big name iconic figures on the defense, and it's a different team, obviously. But the Panthers Panthers MAC always known for defense as well. Right. Not much defense Panthers. Allowing thirty one points in the first half. Ben Rothlisberger was practically perfect through one incompletion the entire first half. Like who's the DC right now? Carolina because that guy's got to be on a hot seat. Right. I mean ridiculous. Antonio brown. Ninety nine yards in the first half juju Smith Schuster one catcher, seventy five yards. He made account James Connor doing his thing. James, Eric, Washington. Eric Washington, the unemployed Washington or soon to be the DC of the Panthers. A guy named Eric Washington. You might be available soon for all you teams out there that need a DC. Here's what I don't understand once again. Christian McCaffrey is the ultimate weapon. He really is. Christian McCaffrey is such a threat out of the backfield. You can handle the football or you can throw him the football. He is just a flat out threat. He's that good. And I always feel when I watch a Carolina Panthers. They don't give him the football enough. They don't and I would like to sit here right now and speak the truth about Cam Newton. Okay. It has to be said because I'm sick and tired of people just lying through their teeth for so many years the year that Cam Newton won the MVP a couple years back. That's not Cam Newton. Cam Newton doing things that we had never seen before. And will never see again that was the dream season for Cam Newton where for some reason. Everything went, right. Cam Newton is a tremendous athletic running quarterback who is a subpar passer twenty years. I don't wanna hear. He's got. Great arm strength. Yeah. He's an NFL quarterback. You should have pretty good arm. Strength, right. Sure. He's got great arm. Strength about impressed unimpressed with guys with noodle arms that have accuracy a lot more than a guy with a cannon. That has no idea where it's going. Okay. Cam Newton is not a good passing quarterback never has been never will. It's not as if at this stage in his career, it's going to change. But he wanted to MVP exactly. And you're gonna tell me Matt Ryan is always going to be as great as that MVP season from a couple of years ago now Matt Ryan's really good. He's not great. He had one great year. Cam Newton at one great year. But Cam Newton is assault part passer, period. Don't give me excuses. Oh, look at the receivers. He's had then you're not watching the games. Cam Newton overthrows guys. He kills earthworms on the field by throwing it to low Cam known just doesn't know where the ball's going. So when people want to tell you why hope he could teach accuracy, I'll give you a name Cam Newton. You can't teach accuracy. He's never learned. He never will learn because how do you teach accuracy? Do you have a guy? Go one hundred times down the field running the same route you have to have the quarterback Thornton constantly. And then he comes accurate doesn't work that way. Either. The hand eye moves at the same pace to where you're an accurate quarterback. Or you're not. It's that simple. Not telling you Cam Newton. Not a good quarterback. He's a good quarterback. But he's not elite. He's not great off the top of my head. I can name at least seven better quarterbacks. And Cam Newton in the NFL tonight. You want me to do it? I'll do it Brady. Rodgers breeze rivers. Russell wilson. You know what I'll take Carson Wentz over him. I'll take Ben Rothlisberger over him. I'll take who am I missing right now. Let me quickly go through the teams in my head. I'll take Marino. I won't take him Montaigue him not taking the ally. Not Dak Prescott Notre Bisky. I'll take oh. I got it. I'll take her cousins. There's eight guys I'd take over and right now, I don't have to count anymore. I'm sure there's another one or two somewhere there. You could argue about any one of those guys me taken them over here. I would take Matt Ryan over Cam Newton, by the way. Okay. Cam Newton barely a top ten cornerback quarterback in the NFL today. Why? Because he's not a good passer, you want the proof watch this game for crying out loud. There's a noticeable difference between Ben Rothlisberger passing abilities and Cam Newton's have homes. There's another one. All right. So now, he's at number ten that's number ten. And I've even even finished going through the list of quarterbacks I'm trying to might be another one ahead of them. Right. A man who am I missing, Sean? There's gotta be somebody else. I'm missing you got to tap your mic something's wrong with it. Tap it up a little bit. Move it around. Yeah. You got to move like immediate. Nope. Now working. Your lips are moving. I can't read. It can't read your lips not a lip reader. Agent. I just think it's just amazing to me how the Carolina Panthers. Don't seem to understand that Christian McCaffrey needs to be touching the football. Heck of a lot more. He does. We saw Christian McCaffrey at the Super Bowl, right? We both said, hey, got bigger looks bigger. Christian McCaffrey is a bigger back. These days. He's elusive. He's one of the best receiving backs in the NFL. And by the way, I don't understand Pittsburgh's defense. I mean, how do you allow Christian McCaffrey to come out of the backfield? Literally untouched. No one's Chippenham. No one's touching him. He's getting the football. He's running in for thirty yards out. No one's even close. Just amazing to me really is shocking to me. But the Pittsburgh Steelers. You know, we forget that the Pittsburgh Steelers are one two and one at one point, right? They've won four in a row. They're leading this one. You'd have to start thinking that Pittsburgh is. Better than we originally thought. There was that infighting early on. We were talking about as Mike Tomlin lost the team has his message gone stale. You know, what everything seems to be okay in Pittsburgh right now. Really no complaints in Pittsburgh right now. No complaints in Pittsburgh when it comes to that team and how good they're applying. They just scored another touchdown on this terrible. Carolina Panthers defense, and they're going to be you know, they're they're on their way to winning five straight games to win five straight games in the NFL. That's a third of the season in a row that you've won. Mcdonald? Would they touchdown catch? No defense yet again. It's incredible to me. Bells hanging out in Pittsburgh. He's playing pickup basketball at the LA, fitness. How pathetic is that? Like seriously. How pathetic is that magin like showing up after work? You go to the LA, fitness. You wanna look good because you're going to the bars this week, and you want to pick up girls, and you're like, oh, maybe I'll play some hoops before I lift some weights, whatever. And there's this big dude there, and you're like, wait a minute. Liane bell like LA, fitness. What? Now can't be dude. You look a lot like on bell. Man. You get that a lot. Oh, wait a minute. How crazy is that? It's insane. I never thought I go to a gym period. But no action. That is true. That is true. I used to actually go to a gym years ago. Then I just put myself out and stop but imagine shots rumor you go to the gym regularly massive you walk through the gym. And there's bell just playing pickup basketball. That'd be weird. Yes. Very very much. So what do you say to them? Thanks. What are you doing here? Go get your but on the field, go workout at the facility. What are you doing at L A, fitness? Right, right. No, call again, Tonio Brown and juju get them over here for nice pickup game or something. I'll tell you what that's so strange that he's out there on the LA, fitness. But it's interesting because I've been saying it all week. You know, actually, it's been sitting in for a couple of weeks. You're watching tonight yet again James Connor ten ten carry sixty yards rushing touchdown reception. Eight yards. They're not missing viane bell. They're not they're about to win their fifth game in a row. Guess what? No lady on bell whoop. De do. He's a heck of a back. But maybe it's the system. Should this scare off some NFL teams? I wanna give bell a big contract. I mean if James Connor and may I'm not trying to criticize James Connor. But I think it's one of the biggest surprises in the NFL today that James CONNER has been so good. And so maybe that makes you wonder, okay. If I take on bell and plug him into my system is he going to be as good. And if I'm gonna pay him fifteen sixteen million bucks a year and guaranteeing forty million bucks. He better be as good just wondering is it becoming a point? Where you start to wonder is on bell a good invest. Or d just the perfect back in the Pittsburgh Steelers system because if James Connor was struggling be different story. Right. Connor struggling like, man. They really mislaid John Bell. You can tell the difference. I can't tell the difference Billy differences rushing running styles. Lady a stop and start type of thing. James Connor just takes it. And goes, I'm just telling you, I, you know, I don't wanna hear anymore that boy, they mislead John Bell. And they'd be better with John Bell. Interesting. We we have statistics actually on the James Connor Latvian bell situation. And for those kind of want to stick with bell is better. And they'd be better off with him. I'm gonna blow your mind next in terms of how you're so wrong. When it comes to.

"Wondering why are they playing Douglas? I mean, he got us to the playoffs last year. Would you like implying over? I mean to be honest either. I mean Darby, and I don't know Darby cat jackal. But douglas. Listen to the playoffs last year. I don't know why they don't put him in. He was in two weeks ago. And he got an interception is I play while Darby came back at the end of the year, so Darby and mills for the most part, and it was. The playoffs. Correct. Right. Yes. Okay. Yeah. That's what I'm saying. Douglas, God is on the way out to the play offs. And I just I just don't understand why I guess they just view it. I think one of the things and this this same knock, I guess applies to Jalen mills with foot speed. But but Douglas lacks that kinda that foot speed you would wind. I think if Jalen mills continues to struggle what you could end up seeing is Sidney Jones goes to the outside with Darby. And then Douglas goes into the slot now. I agree. The Darby hasn't been great either. So far for the most part. I thought they played much better on Sunday. That's for sure. It's not a question like he's not buried Sean by any stretch. I think it's just a numbers game right now if somebody struggles he's I man up. Okay. Yeah. He's not done. I mean, I the one thing you could say about resold. Douglas, and it goes back to his senior year at West Virginia. He's another one. He's got a nose for the ball, man. He had eight interceptions as senior year. And if you saw on that Atlanta game he had a big pick in that game. I play. Yep. Absolutely. Absolutely, man. You got gotta John. Thanks. I really liked resold. Douglas. He was one of the guys that I would I was hoping the eagles would grab what he was coming out of West Virginia. And they did I just think right now they've you it as the best options are there's a little bit more experience with mills in terms of playing time certainly Darby you gave up a pretty significant package. I know Jordan Mathews is back here. But you also gave up a three and he's still young. And eventually Sidney Jones I think will be on the outside right now who knows? But the eagles corners. While they may be having been as good as you would have hoped. I don't think you're to the point yet where you pull the plug on anybody. Now is it a little worrisome? Deep ball mills. Yeah. It's a little bit worrisome and Darby does have to be a better tackling Shawn's right about that? But I think Jones is going to be the star of this defensive backfield. Eventually he will be the star. But defensively they bounce back. They play pretty well. You know, the one thing that I think could happen as well. If they view this thing with J as this just continual. Nagging issue. Whether it's the back, whether it's the knee, whatever the case may be or. It looks like alshon Jeffery could be at longer than we think. And I don't think that's the case, by the way. Is it possible that Howie pulls the trigger on a trade? Somebody react a little bit earlier on Twitter and say, well, what are you talking about who you're gonna dangle out there, Nick foles? No. I don't mean. Nick foles at all. As a matter of fact, you can't take that chance. You can't chance it with Wentz. Not knowing at least right now. What's going to happen? Yes. So far so good one game under his belt. Great. But I would even take that chance. If whence was one hundred percent right now just look at last year. And in a lot of people are saying, well, I mean, look, it's a major injury in San Francisco. Jimmy garoppolo's out, you should you should see if they want false. I I wouldn't look if I'm getting a one back, maybe I consider it. But no, I would rather hang on a false. I just say I bring that up because how we does a lot of things that you don't expect. Liane bell. Could they pull that off financially? It doesn't appear so. But there have been many a scenario. I where I think we said there's no way that they can do that because of the salary cap how he's a master manipulator of the salary cap. That's all I'm saying. I don't mean it's necessarily going to be on bell. I haven't heard anything. I'm just telling you. It's the point now where Pittsburgh is saying enough is enough and we're gonna make the move James Connor continues to play well for them. And they say we don't need this aggravation this guy. This guy is never going to be satisfied. And he's by the way, I think he's making a mistake lay beyond bell. You know, and the other one lady on bell is a stud make no mistake. But the other guy who still out of football right now who just completely. Completely missed the boat on where he's at from a talent standpoint is as bright. Dez Bryant had opportunities with Baltimore most likely with Cleveland. And he was asking money like he was still a premier wide receiver. I got news for you. Does you're not you're not even close you should be happy to get a gig in the league. I think he'll come off stance. I don't know how this shakes out with lady on bell. But if Pittsburgh is willing to move them. And nobody's offering them anything. Great. That'll maybe take a shot for a year. And then you let them walk. If you don't feel like you can pay him next year because you have some serious money. It's going to have to be doled out at some point to Carson Wentz. Just food for thought. I'm just throwing it out there. When you least expect it how he makes it, but we didn't expect them to get JJ last year, right? We we we thought oh there may be something else coming but not J J jet JJ came here and really help this team bells in a different league. He's in a different category. JJ? But possibly. And you look at this team right now. And there's a couple of things that you focus on one the obvious whites. The fact that he's back and what that means for the offense and what it means for him. Now starting to get his feet back under them. And again, there were a couple of things that I saw where he looked like he was in some trouble in the pocket. He scrambled out of there. It wasn't even the fact that he may place which he did. But I didn't know if you observe something differently. I went back and watch it again today. I didn't notice any place where I felt like a he was thinking about it. Or worried about driving off of that left knee. And he got sacked a bunch of times five times. But I think he was thinking about it all that much. And there weren't any. There wasn't a real noticeable limp or affected gate as the game went on that. Maybe it was sore as the game went on. And he's doing it on a wet track. Now, keep in mind, there's an advantage to a wet track. Where you're not locking when you make a cut necessarily your leg giving sometimes as good. I hate to see injuries in the league. I really do. And and seeing Garoppolo go down. It was actually non-contact. He makes the cut along the sideline then he got buried, but it happened before he got hit. So he's out for the season with an ACL. And and that's the thing about football. You really need to get fortunate. You're one play away. And and I know we look at it. And we say, well, the eagles are pretty banged up. Not really. You know, there there temporarily banged up. You know what what's happened is? Some teams already are killer killer injuries. And it's unbelievable. The eagles were able to overcome a quarterback a middle linebacker a left tackle. It's incredible. They were able to overcome that last year. That's rare that that's going to happen. But this year so far. You've got the big piece back and you're close to a couple pieces major pieces not quite as big as Wentz. But you're pretty close to getting those guys back. Now, we're going to have to see some progression certainly from an offensive standpoint. And defensively we know how good they are at home. This is going to be this should be in theory. A game this week. Where the eagles defense is able to do some things because this isn't a great Tennessee offense. But that's on paper in this league. You don't care a whole lot of things on paper. Going in. But aside from that you start to look around at the division now. Dallas again inept offensively. Okay. For starters. The giants. We've seen the giants play. And I know they were able to win last week or Sunday, whatever it was at this point. Yesterday. They re but there no great shakes and neither the Redskins. So the division is kind of what we thought it was going to be just kind of a that's good. It's still really difficult conference. And I know the Rams heads major injuries as our caller pointed out a little bit earlier to the defensive backs, but they're still really good. I watched a lot of that game yesterday with the chargers. They're really good the Vikings despite this loss this week a really good. It's not an easy division in the south is difficult. Breeze. Just continues. I don't know how he keeps doing it. But he just continues to torch defenses at nearly forty with weapons. Atlanta. We saw them. We saw the eagles beat them. They lost twice because they lost the saints and eagles. But I don't think they're dead yet by any stretch Carolina's. No walkover either. And the Vikings are gonna wind, you know. To revenge avenged that loss or they I don't know what happened in that game. I have a chance to really watch much of it, which I will this week pore over it. But they didn't show up obviously against the buffalo team. This is still really difficult conference.

"To a because oh this this song. Dave local L. He's buyer Metcalf. I'm Jason golf, and we're talking about of course, what else the NFL as we head into the all important week two, ladies and gentlemen. So what happened when the week one wrapped up in everybody's talking about their fantasy teams and all these other things, and you you get the reaction in the hot takes in the overreactions one of the greatest overreactions. I saw was hey bigger moment than week to was the first hour of the show that wasn't that wasn't after week one that wasn't like Monday night or Tuesday morning when you're talking to your friends, I was actually to start off. He today show. I know you don't you got thick skin and nothing distraction to you. But from Milwaukee. I don't know. What exactly what that means? But, but you know, it means I can take. You're saying. Yeah. You in the Vernon, Shirley and everything. Wait, wait a minute. My bet. Their overreaction that. I heard early and often was hey, did you see? Liane bell is Anita. John is needed James Connors out there rushing for a thousand and seventy five yards on four hundred and fifty carries in week one against the Cleveland Browns. And they don't need Levy on bell. And I'm like did you watch the game the Cleveland Browns sat in too high safety the entire game? It said run the football. Are you like guess what? At some point. We're going to get our hands on some of these football because we don't have to bring a safety down into the box. We don't have to change up anything. They've played a vanilla scheme and held the Steelers to twenty one total points. I'm sorry. Ladies and gentlemen. Football is one of those sports where everyone thinks. Oh, yeah. You can just plug another guy. And and if he gets the same numbers, he must be just as good. That's not the case bell wants to be paid like a like a quarterback or wide receiver for a reason because he's that versatile and that versatility was missing from that Pittsburgh offense, and it was missing against the Cleveland Browns and week one of the NFL season. So for everybody out there that loves playing fantasy and things that they're into things because they can look up a box score that box score lied to you in terms of the impact that was missed without Levy on bail out there. Yeah. Just because you can do. Moonwalk don't make you Michael Jackson. I had the jacket though with the glitter on it. Didn't have glitter and ads. Yeah. Yeah. You're right. You're reds. Yeah. Don't don't don't ever disrespect, right? My name's Connor. He's probably still running for no reason because they were giving him these unnecessary carries. Putting the loan on a young guy. You have to put lady on bell in that unique special category. Which is why he's holding out, and it's a valid holdout. I think you put him Todd Gurley. Maybe Zeke Elliot Johnson, healthy Johnson. I mean four or five guys in the NFL who you look at them and go, okay. That dude is is completely necessary to what his team does. And if he wants big money he deserves big money lady, I'm bell sees James Connor. And it makes his point it completely makes slave bells point about preserving his body until March. So he can make the big money. Wait, you're gonna give me thirty thirty five carries a game. This is the thing. Jay that. I don't know if people are really. Discussed when it comes to the Latvian bell comeback. Whether it happens next week or it happens in week eight or nine whenever the cutoff date is how are they going to use him because they're completely going against one another and their philosophies lay beyond bail is doing everything in his power to not run the ball too often to not get a bunch of carries. The Steelers have no reason to hold back. He's not gonna play for the Steelers in twenty nineteen most likely he's got to play for another team. So if you know that about your star running back, do you save him? Do you give them twenty carries when you can give them thirty? No, you use him and get as much juice out of that lemon as you can that to me is a juice out of lemon, juice. Lemons, juicy whatever it is, you know, get some juice get some Jews. Okay. Did some matter. But maybe I'm bell to me has to be concerned because James Connor if that's the low takes then that to me increases the risk of injury. And that ruined his plan to go into the off season and convince somebody to give him a bunch of money. So I don't know how the Steelers believe they're helping their cause they really want lady on bell back because the James Connor performance proves beyond bells point, they're going to run me into the ground. If I come back too soon, and I got to be really cautious about that happening because I got money to make this off season. And that's the most important thing. That's the toughest part is trying to tell people that you're playing for the future on an NFL team. Four hundred six touches last year for Latvian bell Salah anytime, you get around that three hundred and fifty touch Mark. You you talking about Jamal Anderson territory where Eddie George. Territory where a bell isn't a guy who takes a bunch of hits. But the the wear and tear that you get from the receiving aspect of it. I think is is just as bad as you carrying the ball three hundred eighty five times four hundred times you're taking hits and unless you're going out of bounds, Shaun Alexander style at the end there where you know, he's hopping on one foot trying to prove that he could play to Mike Holmgren bell is doing what he has to do for beyond bell. And the Pittsburgh Steelers will definitely around week eight do what they have to do for the Pittsburgh Steelers kind of like CC sabbatical when he went to the brewers and he pitched he breached almost every other day down the stretch and Milwaukee Brewers situation where like Bruce Lee. Oh, yeah. Yeah. You're not all are you wanna hit? Can you catch because you're going to do that as well? Because we know we gave up prospects for you. And you're going to play every single inning of every single game down this playoff stretch. The Pittsburgh Steelers have every right to do that when he comes back whether it be spiteful enough because if two thousand nineteen I in your sights, well, guess what two thousand eighteen ours. We've dealt with James Connor for the last two weeks. We he's a he's a he's a he's a he's a swell. Lad, you know, he's he's he's a triumphant chat chap who beat cancer. And and we know his story got a horrific haircut that he's kept from rookie data about what is it? The is it the second year rookie haircut because I don't know why second year guy would have to undergo such an atrocity. Heyzer? Pink backpacking Elvis, conserve our at about. But no the Pittsburgh Steelers gonna put him through the ringer. Maybe I'm bell is going to get every single touch the moment he comes back, and they know that he's not their property anymore. So it's it's a weird dynamic. Everybody's talking about things that they shouldn't be talking about in terms of his money. And he's watching these tweeden emojis James Connors running his tail off people are acting as if they don't need on bell anymore. The Pittsburgh Steeler, Mike Tomlin, and guess what? All of this. Mike Tomlin is sitting back taking arrows from Pittsburgh legends like Terry Bradshaw. Locally and all those people who who liked him. And listen, Mike Tomlin has Mike Tomlin has some exploitable holes. When it comes to the amount of talent that he's had over the years, and how many people how many soup bowls. They think he should have listen anytime, you can you win a couple of Super Bowls as as a head coach. You think your time has been well spit, especially if you're playing in this Brady era, right, right? Exa-? He's got to give him credit for winning Jesse James who ends a championship with Tom Brady and the Jesse James, you know, that that replay goes different way. And and we're talking about a different a different Super Bowl matchup. So I. It's it's one of those instances where the gray area the nuance of the compensation matters so much because I understand why leave yawns doing what he's doing. And I definitely understand why the Pittsburgh Steelers around wake week eight a week nine are going to be like. Yeah. Hope you got your player his forty cares for sure his Wildcats. Yes. Lift catch. Enjoy your run. Ben sit out a couple of plays out here. Maybe I would like to throw the ball as well. So I I understand the the the financial aspect of it. I think do you think he's going? You think we won't see him too week eight now, I don't something's because they're not gonna pay him any more money than they got even though they can they just don't want to set a precedent with with some of the things that they could thrown deal. I dunno what nine hundred thousand dollars a Sunday looks like. Only on bell. And that's that's a lot of money for anybody for guys trying to get some money. He can't keep losing nine hundred K a Sunday. So I think we'll see him by week four or five. How does he go onto that locker room? Wait a minute. I got dues in that locker room who are saying. They don't even know who I am. I've got dudes questioning me and my motives, how do I walk into that locker room light? Hey, everybody. I'm back as me. What does that going to be like? And there are a lot of people who say that NFL players are invincible. And you know, they're just grow bats in machines. And there are no emotion. So maybe he'll walk in and they'll high five each other, and they'll sing a song. And I'll say Steelers, we're back, you know, because Jay told me that NFL players don't have any sort of human qualities, just you are or maybe he walks into that locker room, and that relationship becomes a distraction. Really? Your headline writer, you know, that right? Cared. Nothing about that. Just ahead loud rather? He's my medcalf. I'm Jason gov. Listen to Freddie and Fitz Simons here on ESPN radio up next.

"liane bell" Discussed on WEEI
"Your plan on how you would communicate with agents regarding how utilize players I communicate with players regarding how you've left players question that maybe ever asked you again, I'm not getting into intimate. Details of communication. I don't believe that that's appropriate. Steelers head coach, Mike Tomlin. Liane bells yet to show up. He's not gonna play against Cleveland Browns. James Caan is going to be the Steelers starting running back. Steelers. Take on the Cleveland Browns in Cleveland. You've got been rothlisburger with an excellent record against Cleveland and. I'm not one who buys the hard knocks stuff anymore. I think hard knocks does the job of trying to pump everyone up and making everyone feel good about whatever team that they're focusing on doesn't always give you the real stuff. So last year a lot of people got all hyped about Tampa Bay all the Gordon plastic stunk. Tampa Bay didn't make the playoffs. So the NFL wants everybody looked good hard knocks people are all excited about Cleveland. Think they're going to win some games this year organization when a game last year. They do have better coaching. And it got better players. It's no doubt about that. And I do think they'll win some games this year. But for people thinking they're going to win seven or eight games this year that's going to be a big old jump. I don't like what I'm seeing out of Pittsburgh where you've got bells teammates. Speaking about his business. And talking about what he should. Or shouldn't be doing. I've got a problem with that the end of the day. You don't worry about my money. Don't count my money, and I won't count yours. The end of the day. Yes, we like football. But we're not running a charity. You were going to get paid to play football. All of you out there working you don't work for free. You work for. Check. In for any of you who want to call out here say, oh, you know, what I do for fourteen million dollars. Stop it don't even think about call the phone because I'm gonna blast. You do not compare what you do in your job to lay on bell making fourteen million dollars. You don't have his talent. When you have talent you can ask for big money. When you don't have talent. You don't ask for big money because you can't get it. So don't compare yourself were telling me what you do if you could be on bell. The Steelers should be ashamed for going after belly fellow player. You guys are out here side with ownership. You're not ownership. You guys are all players and at some point in time, you're deals going to be up as well. Would you? Appreciate somebody talking about your deal, and basically tell you just take it sucked up. That's wrong. That is going to be a true PA problem in the Steelers locker room, but I do appreciate a guy like Antonio Brown who went out there and stood up for lay beyond belt, saying he's welcome. When he comes back into.

"No one wants to be the best option. Prove everything all over again. But honestly all of us. So what happened was disconnected communication was was on bell telling his teammates one thing. And he and his agent were planning another did Levy on bell changes mind this week did the players maybe not have a line of communication with Levy on bell. Did the players assume that lady on bell will do what he did last year and show up before without really knowing did they project their own feelings on this situation. But again, I have never ever. None of us have ever heard teammates talk about another teammate like that before publicly effort. A decent. Macari is the agent for lady Abell he was on NFL live yesterday. And he talked about the running backs future. There's nothing really to presume. We know the lady odd has several years ahead of him and football. We know right now. Pittsburgh are precarious at Beth. We also know how he's been utilized in the pad. Organization. And again, that's not nothing to say negative about field. If they have one of the best players who have ever played the position and they relied on him heavily for the production that he can provide. But in doing so you take away from his future years. But curry also talked to us something that is absolutely going to have to be addressed the next collective bargaining issue. And that is the issue of the franchise tag. We know the franchise tag does not work the franchise tag strategy to find players who are elite level player. We have quite frankly out being the efficacy of the franchise is a recipe for disaster. When you have targeted a player on your roster who's an elite level player. Early in the interest of everybody team included that wasn't done in this case if you don't find that player early in the currency day after three years, then unintentionally as an organization you're betting on what that somehow talent. Because it's the diminishing of talent that will result in his market value going down. What did they special player and he entering the palm of his years? Each year each year you passed on doing a long term deal. He's going to get better. And how frequently the value that he's gonna command is want to do. What increase totally agree with in my opinion on this. I don't like the franchise tag. I think it's completely unfair to be honest. I mean, yeah, you could see her go. Well, the guy's going to be a top five guy or top three guys. Gotta get his money one year at a time in a league that doesn't guarantee much money with with the exception of a select few. But I mean, why why do we have this stupid rule where we have this rule for one player that we treat the other fifty two players on the team differently. They get their contracts, but we're gonna we're going to really put the screws to this one guy each and every year. I don't like it. I don't and I side with management and ownership on a lot of issues. But I don't like this is something I think the players association's could try and get rid of all together. And I think it is on Fairlie used against running backs running back there in a tough tough spot. You know? If you come out of college early you come out at h let's say you play through your senior year. You're twenty two years old. You get your first. If if you're in the first round, you get your six year deal. Now, you're twenty eight you wanna long-term extent you want that second all the NFL players. They'll always play for that second contract. That's second contracts where you make your money. But if you're a running back, and you're twenty seven or twenty eight coming off your rookie not wants to sign you beyond thirty every running back virtually everybody got falls off the cliff at age twenty nine or thirty. Nobody wants to give you a long term deal. So running backs are becoming an obsolete position in the NFL. In is a it's a passing game. No question about it. But running back they're not getting paid like wide receivers and quarterbacks and defensive ends tackles. You know, I remember back in my day when I watch. Barry Sanders and Emmett Smith, the running back was the focal point that was your star. That was your second highest paid guy. That's not the case anymore, and they have virtually no chance of getting a long-term second contract. Here's the bodies were down to the way, the contracts ago, they can't do it. And then then if you're running back you get a six year deal got a five year deal the team franchises for two years. Now, you're twenty eight twenty nine. Liane bells twenty six be twenty seven and February when he's a free agent. You wanna give them a five year deal Zaid's thirty one thirty two. No, no, you don't. The just what a what a weird weird day yesterday was with the teammates coming out called about split a bow on this conversation because I think this is a great comment from Tedy Bruschi are ESPN NFL analyst and former New England patriot with his thoughts on the Steelers offensive lineman yesterday, usually it's his choice. It's his contract is his business. You don't mess with that. As a player. I think it's bad ball actually, some of the comments that they're that they're saying about levian builder. Going all in on them but pocket watching as they call. It. He is a twenty six year old running back who turns twenty seven in February. And he knows that there are suitors out there that don't care about anything about what he does this year because they'll be ready to back up the Brinks truck for him to sign that check. Nicely said there, we've got football tonight. It's the falcons and the defending champion eagles will find out if Nick foles can continue where he left off all that coming up next as we go will take me, home and Golic and wingo preview. It's coming up at the top of the hour. Stay with me here. Craig she for Mike Golic junior on first and last on ESPN radio on the ESPN app..

"All right and i mean that's their right there he's gotta fix up a running back maybe look at the offensive line a bit but first and foremost goal fix up the defence anaya said after that then you get a running back and people on the twitter sphere have been talking about how liane bell could possibly find his way to tampa bay everything played outright okay and i mean i could see it happening cave so let's put it this way all right let's say that the steelers or go back to the roads dealer ways become stingy cheap and don't pay levy on bell all right and i understand like if the sewers didn't want to pay lay beyond bill i get that too because i mean they beyond bells looking for fifteen to seventeen million dollars a year and i think the steelers caps situation around already isn't looking to good sarmento gap like as to why they wouldn't but i mean you've gotta figure out a way to keep a player like downer team or the dudes without a doubt the best running back in the league it's like lay beyond bound then i mean put over he was a pool everyone else after that oh care if it was up to me yard give lady on bell that kind of mind because like i said no one can do what he does are one of the best runners in between the talk the nice patient running back doesn't really runthrough hit the whole until he knows it's ready pretty much it's completely open at its best r and runs outside the taco's pretty well and then as far as catch the ball the backfield i mean the do give you 100 yards on the ground but it could also give you eight catches 100 plus yards and couple touchdowns far as receiving the ball so i mean probably one of the best tool threat running backs in the league.
