Patriots may soon have to deal with their first Antonio Brown issue and it has to do with his number

"We have to talk about the biggest storyline in the NFL Antonio Brown as it looks like the saga for Antonio in some ways is finally ending and in other ways. It's just beginning for number eighty four as Antonio uh-huh Brown signs a one year proved deal with the New England patriots and it's hilarious because there is so much speculation when all his shenanigans with the Oakland Raiders for going on that really it was just a grand master plan for Bill Bella check to somehow land the all world talent wide receiver in sure enough he gets released from the raiders and later that day signs deal with the New England patriots another huge weapon in the offense four. Tom Brady and this has shades of what Randy Moss did did when he was with the Oakland Raiders. Moss spent some time in Oakland during his games he played for the raiders. You could just see that the big hall of fame wide receivers hardest wasn't in it. He wasn't really producing for the raiders he was now running routes with this full heart. You can just tell that he wasn't the Randy Moss when he was sooner in Oakland and then he goes to the Patriots under Bill Belichick and has a career year a record setting year with Tom. Brady Brady threw for fifty touchdown passes does that offense was just a cold plays away from being the first team to go perfect nineteen in Oh as they were trying to catch the seventy two dolphins they lose of of course the super bowl to the tremendous comeback led by Eli Manning and the New York giants. Is this going to be just like that. Are we gonNA see a patriots team. That could possibly go undefeated after Sunday night. That's a very real possibility that defense for the Patriots absolutely shut down the steelers and and if they know they're gonna get just a boatload of points on the offensive side of the ball you know Bill Belichick GonNa give all of his time and effort to making sure that that defense is ready eighty each and every week for their match. Make sure everyone's healthy ready to go that the scheme is right and we very well could see a run at history again in New England might right sound a bit presumptuous just in week one but the steelers are a classic. AFC favorite especially when they had the big three Bell Brown and Rothlisburger now with two of those three pieces Gone Smith Schuster looks to pick up the slack for Antonio Brown but now yet to find someone to pick up the slack for Juju at that wide receivers Chris to spot you also gotta be be frank here that James Connor is not living on bell. We saw that in that game Sunday night so the steelers were still a good test defensively civilly always are fantastic and brady made them just look like a peewee football team out there as he had no problem going for thirty three points in that game and pass over three hundred honored yards. You put a be in that mix with Josh Gordon Julian Edelman the running back tandem of James White as well as Sony Michelle is going to be a really tough challenge to beat this patriots team and because of that you who who's to say I mean they they could do it. They could do it you. You can't say they can't there. There is a real world possibility with the addition of Antonio Brown that the Patriots could make some history but now we gotta look back at how this came to be an Antonio oneal brown you could tell really from the Gecko once he got into camp once he started running some routes with Derek Carr in this raiders offense something clicked in his head that he did not want. I WANNA be in Oakland. I mean he did the cryotherapy happens and you chalk that up to operator malfunction with the frostbite on the feet then he goes on this insane escapade with the helmet trying to get all that taken care of in think in trying to use his old helmet. He's used forever he. He's had six months to do it and he doesn't think that's enough time to find a new helmet. I mean he's not looking for new kidney. He just needs a helmet you. There's ways to figure that out to make it fit and make it. It'd be comfortable everyone else in the NFL did it why couldn't he that becomes an issue. He's stays out of training camp. He doesn't do the walk throughs. The helmet issue did not mean he couldn't couldn't practice with the team he did that on his own accord and then he goes after the general manager of the raiders after he gets fine for actions he knows our final. He did them with that in mind. There wasn't like that fine just came out of the sky on him and Mike mayock gets verbally costed by Antonio Brown he goes on a barrage. I use of slayer of slurs cuss words to Mike May Auchan your raiders still still planned on playing him in there Monday night game against the broncos broncos that says a lot about the raiders as an organization that they were willing to take this abuse from Antonio Brown and take all this Prima Donna behavior behavior that was happening with Ab and still play him Monday night when he's barely practice with the team we talked earlier in the season here here on this show about how Antonio Brown by taking all this media attention has helped the raiders rookies developed because they haven't had to deal with it and that's still true in the lot of the raiders rookies have talked talked about in themselves and the second year players have said by having Antonio Brown. It's been nice that they haven't had to deal with the media coverage and hard knocks and that was really a lot more centered around Antonio Brown but he's also had a terrible example as an a way to conduct yourself as professional with what he's done with the raiders clearly didn't want to be there show the the reaction video when he finally gets released from the raiders and all of that finally goes down and I think the raiders are better off for it you if you're going to establish a new culture in Oakland. You can't have this going on in your locker room on your sideline. You need to get Antonio Brown out of out of there if he wants out all the better let him go you cut your losses just saved a lot of money by voting that twenty nine million that you would yet. You'RE GONNA pay him over the three years Antonio Brown you get your wish you go you get to play for the Patriots I think both sides can kind of wash their hands of the issue but now the rest of the NFL has to deal with the Patriots and Tom Brady having Tony Brown as viable and very real. You'll weapon for them

The latest on a running back's quest for a new deal

"That right now in the league we have the drama around Ezekiel Elliott and Melvin Gordon and running backs and this is a a hot topic especially perhaps for analytics minded fans and analysts so how do you think this plays out worn either way specifically with those running backs in mind or just in in general are teams going to down right stop paying the best running backs in the league you know real good NFL money it is such a hot button issue because you definitely have the contingent of analytics people who have opinions supported by the true data which shows that the downgrade between that guy and who his replacement might be is not going to be that big of a difference and the difference but you save and salary cap would massively be able to help improve your team at the position that matter right at their quarterback your offense of line made your secondary your edge rusher those types of positions but then you have the other side of the coin where there are people that are core believe in player the get paid and running backs put themselves through the most beating that any player does in the league or one of the closest and that those guys deserve to get paid for as much as they can possibly get because their careers are so short and neither side is like you very willing to like meet in the middle but you know the fact is that people who one of Haiti's backs a lot of money because they're worth and salary cap on the league is rising into back should be getting more of that and and so their salary cap number should increase as well the problem with that school of thought is that they are exactly right that contract for these guys their careers are shorter because it's the most injured prone position that we have in the NFL these guys the typically get injured quicker and the problem you wind up with these Todd Gurley situation where you have a guy you loved what he did on his rookie deal you have a new coach you think you're going to use it a lot he's going to be your three don bell cow back together and you pay on second contract his first season and because you're using it so much you end up getting injured and then you're in a situation where you committed a bunch of money to this guy but you now realize that we can't use another three don bell cow back because he's too old and he's too brittle and he's not going to help hold up to that now we're going to going draft guide we have to draft guy somewhat in the third round as running back to help augment the fact so it's it's just nothing there's no clear cut right answer I don't think that these guys should be taking up as large of a percentage of their salary cap we saw guys go down last season Todd Gurley lady on now they're back up came in James Connor CJ Anderson the typically I'll produce those who died in terms of their production and lady on balance how girly were the two best running back on twenty seventeen like literally the number one or number two think about it on a quarterback perspective if if you add to the best quarterback in the NFL go out and you just had to put their backup in there's not a chance they would outperform I mean it is always a lot of talking about like bad starting quarterback not a chance they'd outperform those guys no running back with a really different position at half the treated as a very unique way you know we're working and don't love living in buffalo and working here at as we do I feel like I or we were pretty early to the frustration with the voting big time assets to running backs warned the bills for years really our our entire careers together Mike and I've been together I think this will be our sixteenth season come up together and the bills are almost always had a bell cow running back and normally like Travis Henry was a second round pick and then there's a run of first round picks that include mackay he and Marshawn Lynch and CJ Spiller Miller's Fred Jackson who showed up off the street and Jackson may have been the best of the whole bunch which is like mad being but at the same time I grew up in an era where running back for the stars in the game and I find myself feeling somewhat sympathetic to these guys that they're kind of being left behind while learners and receivers and quarterbacks reap all the rewards of this league that's just you know growing exponentially year by year it seems I don't I don't disagree one bit the fact the batteries running backs are always going to hold some value right you're never going to go where there are a hundred percent pass because it's more efficient to run the football in certain situations the third vehicle it short yardage situations as well as down inside of the red zone those are the most optimal time who won a running back but you do not want to be using him as often on first and second down especially second along as teams have been using that in the past that in the areas that we grew up in and watched you know and that Smith just caring so much load south of the Dallas Cowboys and many other back from the levy doing similar things just a totally different game I am sympathetic to the effort they put in and they're professionals now and they've been told all along the way that they're the best running back they're the best running back high school college you know into the league and now they're coming up to try to get a new contract and teams are calling on we don't value as you as much anymore and it it it is the is that my hard blow for them to take them sure Warren sharp at sharp

There was the situation in practice where missed the hot route and been said he wanted to run it again, and he just lost it. What is going on with Antonio Brown? Round got upset this. According to Jeremy is reporting that rob Berger wanted to run a hot read over again during a walk-through so coaches sent another player into run the play a source close to the situation told Adam Schefter Brown got upset left. Practice and talked with rothlisburger afterward telling the quarterback that he felt underappreciated and had issues with people in the organization Emmett the Steelers locker room dating all the way back to a couple of years ago and the Facebook live incident with. Yeah. Forgot about that. You've got the lady on bell situation. Then you've got weird blow ups and just the dynamic within that team for his talented is they were to not make the playoffs.

He stayed out until they started to lose. And then he goes back in. Yeah. We'll ribbon DRAM in the fact that he was back on the sidelines. Sounds like he was cleared to come in. Mike Tomlin said later that. It was the game flow that the game at the time did not allow for him to return. You know, what our interpreted the bottom line? He went into the locker room to get X.

Jalen Samuels is the guy Stephen really found the end zone, but he had five carries for four yards. One. Touchdown. Jalen Samuels, by the way, seven catches on seven targets of sixteen point two.

"Steelers. Coach Mike Tomlin says James Connors ankle injury. A bit more serious than initially thought it will make it being. He will miss this Sunday's game against the raiders. Hello, everybody. Glad you could be with us on this Tuesday. I'm Wendy next field Yates, Tim Hasselbeck and coach John clock. So we'll begin with it James Connor is out. He will not suit up for the Steelers when they face the raiders at least not this week, it appears uncertain after that it's week to week up pulling out the panic button. I don't know if we'll need it. But gentleman, I say this panic patients from the Steelers without James Connor against the raiders all begin here. When do you just save patients? I mean, I understand James Connors injury. This point of the week, it moved out probably suggested this could be more than a mall that one week symptom for him, but the raiders defensively have whoa. Stopping anybody. Good opportunity here for Jalen Samuels, the NC state rookie for the Pittsburgh Steelers to profitably step into a larger role. But I'm going to remain patient because Steelers. Often has so many weapons because of the matchup. They face this weekend against the Oakland rail. We anybody we didn't say the remainder of the season. We just simply said penny pages against the raiders important distinction. And is important distinction was so without knowing how long is out on patient as well. Jalen Samuels, really good player to be honest with a versatile player, probably more like belvin James Connor is because of his ability as a pass catcher, I think is probably a better runner than people realize they do have Steven Ridley there, I would expect to see both of them. But I also think it's also about the collection of that entire offense. I think it's a good offensive line. Obviously, they have a great quarterback outstanding wide receiver. So I think they can get by without him. Being fact is due to return at some point. Three with the patients. You don't get the button. If you didn't see it. Right. Okay. But they're going to rely on their pass weapons starting with. Then they're receiving core is just too good to explosive and they'll make up in the run game. You know, they'll run their draws in screens as far as where they take care of their backs, and it really is going to be about their defense, and they are playing the raiders and they are playing listen. And all we know right now is that James will miss this week. It remains to be seen. What happens after that? Although I don't think it's out of the question that this could linger a little bit. Let's just call. What it is. If you're declaring a player out on Tuesday afternoon. You know, he's probably not going to practice. It all this week. He's already out for this week. Like that suggests there's a possibility that the Steelers who bought away in week fifteen and sixteen play the patriots and the New Orleans Saints. We'll see whether they have James Connor available for those games. Right, right. Well, hold our fire, shall we? Well, here we go look at the NFC playoff picture Rams. The only squad clinched a playoff berth. So far this seventy five Cowboys currently sit at the top of the NFC east. Philly beats Washington bumps the Vikings back to the second wildcard spot. The eagles are still in the hunt. But have the NFL's most difficult remaining schedule. That's according to our football power index. Philly gets the win. They've won two in a row. I granted granted it was against an undermanned Redskins team. But nevertheless, there six and sex and still not out of this thing, they're not as much as you want to poke holes in their resume and say, Ken, they make a deep run. We'll we're at week fourteen of the season and they're a game back and they play the Dallas Cowboys this upcoming week. So I do think it's possible right now as we do in the NFL, it's all about finding a way to get into the, Dan. So won't you do crazy things can happen Philadelphia. It looks so gave very different team last year. And they still haven't found that rhythm in their passing game and defective. With is still major. Issues in the back end covering anybody. Which is mitigated by the fact that the Redskins were down to Mark Sanchez last night..

Stephen A.: 'I'm embarrassed by what I'm seeing from the Pittsburgh Steelers

"Me let me to just a little bit allow me to express to you the alarming level of frustration that I on questionably feel at this particular moment in time. I cannot put into words how disgusted I am. That the Pittsburgh Steelers ended up losing this game. I can't even put it into words. Ben Rothlisberger four hundred sixty two yards passing wasted. James connor. He's no Le vian bell. Juju Smith Schuster, thirteen receptions, one hundred and eighty nine yards wasted. For two reasons above all else. Big Ben Rothlisberger leading the league in red zone interceptions. Do another one yesterday was Shelby Harrison defensive lineman getting blocked in the coverage. And ultimately Ben Rothlisberger throwing the ball right to. Now. We can make the argument that it's the freakish interception that Ben Rothlisberger may have ever thrown as he so eloquent it in the aftermath of their twenty four to seventeen loss to the Denver Broncos yesterday. Denver Broncos team. That's now beating the charges in the Steelers in back to back weeks, by the way, we could go that route. All we can state the obvious. If you watched it throw, ladies and gentlemen, it was an interception. No matter what. Whether it was Shelby, all whether it was Roe. I'm sorry. Shelby. Harris. Oh, whether it was Roby who had. Antonio Brown completely covered. I don't know what the hell big. Ben Rothlisberger was thinking throwing that pass made absolutely positively no sense. Whatever you can point to that specific interception. But it was going to get into septic. It was going to get into septic. There is no doubt about that. There's absolutely positively. No doubt about that. Yet despite case keenum only one hundred ninety seven yards. Despite the fact that Denver didn't have the most formidable run a game to speak of. They still ended up winning the game. I mean Lindsay did have one hundred ten yards on fourteen carries. That's almost eight yards per carry. I got it. But the real culprit and all of this was bent. It was turnovers from Connor. It was a drop touchdown pass from Washington. I mean, I'm just looking around right now at the Pittsburgh Steelers. And I can't even express. The level of my frustration. Because you see regardless of how. But thank Pittsburgh secondary looked earlier in the season. They had got things together. They were looking a little bit better. But now, I'm of the monster. They lost that game yesterday. And I said, dammit, they just lost a trip to the AFC championship game. Now. Now, I'm not saying that laser gentlemen, mama's saying that it's a very simple explanation. And you know, what that explanation is? It's the fact that the Pittsburgh Steelers now dropped to what is it a fourth seed. Or at least a three seed in the AFC that means Kansas City and New England both ahead of you. That means to get to the AFC championship game. You're going to have to be one of the other one a row, and I don't think they're going to do that. Now had the Steelers and all likelihood possibly fighting for birth to the AFC championship game at Arrowhead stadium against the kids City Chiefs. You know, what if you had home games prior to that one could stand the believe who knows what kind of upset could transpire maybe I'll get lucky. Now, it's no way in hell.

"And so we're just gonna see how it plays out. I just think is an interesting scenario to watch it play out. But then on the field. I think the big thing on the field. We'll be how much will levian Bill be missed for the Steelers going down the stretch. It's still playing really will. They won what five hot since store now? Like one down one zillion points scores points, they've kind of found their way. And so I was like, well, let me reach out to a couple defensive coaches data faced him that no them, whatever. And I had a D coordinator. Tell me look we're happy that live Bill isn't there because it really allow us to come to dig down and kind of focus on who we want to stop. And he said, look, I think when you play the Steelers particularly down the stretch and in the playoffs you wanna make situation where you take juju Smith Schuster and aby out the game and make James Connor and the tight ends Wenda game. He was like to me. Me. Let's dia slow death as opposed to quick death that AB Schuster can kind of put on us. Another do. That's all that it faces Stiller's early in the season said, look we underestimated Connor con is a really good player. He's not flashy. He's a blue collar player, and we didn't necessarily think he was as good as what he was. So we went in thinking, hey, let's take away eighty four. Takeaway, nineteen don't let those guys get off unless you've kind of convenient. He said look Connor kind of beat us. He hurt us. He said I think they can go into playoffs with him. He said, but their style will look different than the style that we've seen and the more he plays. The more people will get a feel for this offense. Because remember new office coordinator, people didn't know what Randy fincher was going to do with this offense. New number one back in James Connor you still trying to figure are they gonna play the old way or the new way. And so the more that they play the move will get a chance to see this weekend will be good. The Jacksonville Jaguars. Even though the Jaguars aren't. Great aren't playing. Well, right now, that'd be good. But the game that I'm really looking at will be how do they play against pages? Two pages have always been their nemesis depicts known for making people play left-handed. What does the Steelers offense looked like when they don't when they have to play a match up against they have awakened tender. Yeah. On the on the field stuff. Look at the one thing. I would caution on that. And we we talked to probably a lot of the same people. And sometimes in the NFL, coaching wise, they use a phrase what the name the name, even more. So than the game. Like at some point time coaches can't get the names out of their head. Like, I see I I do these charger games. See people in in certain instances double teaming Antonio gates. And unlike Antonio gates is a hall of Famer, but you don't need to double team Antonio gates right now at this point in his career..

"He skipped an entire year. And we're not for James Connor the situation would have been much more dire for the Steelers, and they would have been unprepared for for for life without lady and FRA season. So teams might decide we don't wanna validate this move. We want to make him pay, and they also fits as John FOX pointed out on NFL live be looking at said Steelers situation with James Connor and thinking, maybe these guys aren't worth it. If we have the right personnel behind them. Here's John FOX said, you know, I think the big winners here where the Pittsburgh Steelers. They save fourteen million dollars. Right. And also James Connor. I mean, James Connor wasn't. He wouldn't be having this opportunity had lady I'm Bill showed up to start the season. Whether he missed all a camp and all the preseason he showed up day one of the regular season. I'm not sure James Connor gets this opportunity and and good for him. He'll opportunity knocks you bust the door down. So I'm I'm really happy for James Connor. And you know, he's making the most of his opportunity, you know, you don't want to sit here and beat up on bell. I mean, he he made that choice in that choice. We'll see where it takes. I mean, not everybody's got James Connor rights are not every team is going to be able to say, you know, we don't need you stop asking for so much. We're fine without you. But there are certainly teams that are going to look at that. And say was that worth the money? They almost paid him. I I think the part of the conversation we have to actually sort of separate ourselves from those how good the Steelers are here in in year out. Right. I mean as much as it's easy to come in and say for most fan bases. Hey, look at what the Steelers did maybe on. It's not that important. You have to remember that most teams aren't the Steelers. I mean, you're talking about consistently one of the best teams in the NFL. The they have so much. You're talking about a team as you pull up the last few years last year, thirteen and three eleven and five ten and six eleven and five. This is a good football team. Their idea of a truly disappointing season is eight eight which is the idea of a good season for many teams in the NFL. So I think it's hard to look at it and say, we'll James Caan of Rouge. You don't need it because the Steelers are just stacked and better run than most. Organizations because of the the dynasty that is the patriots. We don't appreciate enough. Mike Tomlin and the Steelers and what they're accomplishing. It's hard for me to say that every other NFL team can look at that and apply that to themselves because most NFL teams don't have a Mike Tomlin. They don't have an organization that's run as well. As the Steelers, and it's hard for me to believe that in an era where salary caps exist because owners can't control themselves from spending. It's hard for me to imagine that, you know, you're if you're jimmer saying, you're the the Indianapolis Colts like we mentioned the other day with basically a hundred and twenty million dollars to spend. I I have a hard time thinking he's going to send any message other than hey, come play with Andrew luck because holy cow. What an offense that would be its benefits there Spain and Jason Fitz with you, of course, on the other side of things not only could leave in bells moves and the way the Steelers have responded affect how other teams view high high level players asking for big money. But on the opposite side players might be looking at what levian bell has done, particularly if he does pull this. Off and get a massive contract with a lot of guaranteed money and think to themselves I'm going to do the same Tedy Bruschi ESPN NFL analyst was on will came today and talked about it the president. He's set now for every player that's about to get this franchise tag again, neck, probably February is when they tag. I don't can't remember. But I mean, they'll think a Levy on and if he gets his money and the free agency coming up, though, they may be willing. They have to decide and look themselves in my willing to make this type of commitment to sit out an entire year to be a free agent, and you know, put this sort of Mark on your reputation, right?.

Le'Veon Bell doesn't report to Steelers and can't play this season

"Expires. That's part of the CBA. It's been part of the CBA for twenty five years. But the Steelers are the ones who. Initiated this process. They blocked Levy on bell from going to the open market and getting maximum compensation for his abilities last year. He chose to stay away from the off season program training camp preseason and people were upset and the Steelers were calling out. How dare you not show? Look he didn't have to the rules that the Steelers initiated allowed him to stay away until right before the start of the season make his full twelve point one million dollars and not show up for anything before week one. And he did it and he got vilified for it. Now this year the Steelers do it again, they restrict him once again from going to the open market. So it's his prerogative to not show up for off season training camp preseason regular season. And Chris I don't think he went into the regular season intending to skip the whole year. I think initially it was well, let's see how they do with James Connor. And maybe if they struggle they'll offer me more than eight hundred fifty five thousand a week, and then that didn't happen. So there goes that. And then I think he was gonna show up around. Seven during the bye. And then there was talk about trading. And so I'm not gonna show up then. And I think as we got closer to the end of the line that Tuesday after week ten everyone became aware of it come next year the Steelers if they franchise tag him again, they're gonna have to use that quarterback tender, right? And I think that's when bowel realized you know, what I'm gonna make it to the open market. Whether I play or not I'm just not gonna play. I'm going to give up an extra six million to ensure that I can finally after two years of waiting. He can finally go to the open market and go to the highest bidder. And that that's that's American at its core in a capitalist society. We should be applauding the efforts of any wanted to try to position themselves to get the most money possible. That's what makes our entire way of life revolve. The idea that we're all going to go out there. We're gonna try to capitalize on every situation we can business and professional makes most as much money as we can. That's the American way. But yet on bell does it and we get upset with him. But. Steelers are the ones who have kept him for making the most money. He can he's merely reacting to the moves the Steelers have made to prevent him from getting paid the way. He should that's right. And really, I mean, it's the only profession in the world that this goes on it really is. I think that's the big thing too. I mean, we talked about it a little in the first year and to a point you made in the first hour with all the good points. You just made explaining that. You know, if if love EON bell was still deciding whether he wanted to come back within the last ten days the final nail in the coffin was Dez Bryant tearing his achilles. Tendon in practice that you brought that up in the first hour. And I think that's another great point. You know, we just sit there and think, oh, he, you know. Yeah. You think about this the football game? Well, no practices physically demanding as well. So and stupid things can happen in practice. I've seen guys tear their achilles and tear their ACL's in practice. No contact or a guy tripping and falling on the guy's knee. So, you know, all those things have to be taken into account, the only negative and you told them. Remember, remember, Brandon Marshall story right of half freaked out. He was when you were playing with him in Denver. They hadn't gotten his contract yet. And he's still had regular season games to play being that's going to be. If bell had showed up that would have been his life for the rest of the year because you can't shut that down about you can say, you're not thinking about it. Right. You're thinking about you're thinking about it. And usually when you're thinking about stuff like that. Then you're not playing to your full total capabilities, and aggressiveness, and it's usually the guys that lack aggressiveness that ended up getting hurt in the NFL and those type of place. But yeah, Brandon Marshall I'll still remember we're in Philadelphia in the locker room the Broncos had promised him they would reopen and give him a new contract that didn't happen. I think it was week fifteen we're going into Philadelphia. We're in the we're in the bathroom looking ourselves in the mirror before we go out. And he's kinda yelling at them. Like, you are right. And he goes I just can't play like this. I can't play like this. I know I'm so close to you know, finally, breaking the Bank and making all this money for the future betterment of. Mm and his family, and so many things and it's hard to let it loose. When that's in the back of your mind. So yes, there you have to give a guy like Le vian, some compassion and a sport and football at the running back -sition. There are no guaranteed contracts. And he's just using the tools that he sees necessary to benefit himself. And the other thing too is the only thing I say is negative here. Mike, this is the only negative for really levian bell. Is that he loses one year in his prime. That's the only thing I can look at you know, you only have so many years of being that top shelf type football player. And he was that. And he just loses one year. I doesn't matter in the long run. But I'm just saying that's the only thing I would bring up yet. Yeah. But here's the thing. And I understand how the aging process works that applies to everyone in the NFL except Tom Brady. You look at it this way. You kind of doing an advance on your retirement like like, we don't know how long he would have played if he had played this year. But you could make the argument that his career will last as many total years is it would have if there's going to be one more tacked onto the end then would have been right now because he's he's avoiding the wear and tear, and I think for running backs it's more about wear and tear than aging, right? Because you really don't start to lose a step until you're on the wrong side of thirty five. And I think physically the body is still going to be in a position where it can withstand the pounding at that age if it hasn't taken the pounding earlier, and we're seeing guys like Frank Gordon Adrian Peterson get it done deep into the thirties. I think that that for a running back giving up a year now could ultimately lead to adding a year later, but we'll never be able to disprove or prove because we won't know how long would have played if he hadn't sat this year out. We put up a poll question before the show. Do you support labor on Bell's decision to skip twenty eighteen right now fifty three percent? No forty seven percent. Yeah. It was fifty fifty right away. And and I'm surprised there are as many who say, yes. Because I thought the knee jerk reaction for most fans would be he's in the wrong. Why would he choose not to play football? He doesn't love football. He doesn't love his teammates. He doesn't love America. He doesn't love God. I mean, that's where some of these arguments. Go it's ridiculous. How these arguments quickly spin out of control. I'm glad to see forty seven percent of the people out there understand how it should be interpreted. And how we should be reacting to a guy who's making a business decision based upon what he thinks is right for him. Yeah. It's actually an encouraging number. That's why I looked at I expected it to be like sixty five thirty five, and you know, people not supporting his decision. I really did. But you know, hopefully, we are us to included are educating people about this process, and that it is a business and every player has to approach the NFL as their own singular entity as you yourself are the business here, and hey, I could speak to it. Myself, mike. I mean, I got I got tendered as my fourth year in the NFL. Right. I said, you know, what we went to the playoffs the year before I played really good. I could have asked for more money as a starting quarterback and football. But he said, you know, I said I'll I'll take one for the team and be good and be a good soldier to everybody else. Well, you know, what happened in week four? I lost my spleen that was never the same. And I never really got to capitalize the way I should have. So you know, it's all fine and dandy game. Plans are all great until you get punched in the mouth like Mike Tyson used to say, and those are the things that happen in football, which is of course, incredibly physical. So that's really the bottom line for bell. It's good.

"If he doesn't it would mean, he will leave over fourteen and a half million dollars on the table, and despite all the drama regarding Levy on bell. The Steelers are on a roll doing no smoke part to the stellar play of running back James Connor Connor has eleven touchdowns in nine games and has become a focal point of Pittsburgh offense. What a year it's been for James. He's been incredibly productive for the Steelers with Levy on bell AB temp for whatever reason bell had fifty seven more touches at this point last year than Connor has in two thousand eighteen but Connor has outgained. Bell from scrimmage and has scored six more touchdowns. Connor has the most scrimmage yards through nine teen games of any player in Steelers history. So this is no disrespect to Levy on bell. This is about what James CONNER has done. It is in a way. Historic at least in terms of that franchise. People will ask do they have enough. So I'll ask do they have enough Tim and field to go the distance with the players that they have on that roster right now. Of course, they do. I think when you look at the production that he's head from that position in comparison to leave you on there hasn't been a drop off. So so you think about it you you have a running back is planning a high level. You've got a Super Bowl winning quarterback. That's still playing high level one of the best receivers in that game. And outstanding offense at y. I mean all fits. They one hundred percent have the ingredients to be a Super Bowl team defensively. They're getting better piggyback on something that coach said in terms of evaluating players, and you know, finding out the why and things of that nature. The truth is this lady on bells actually quicker on bells. Probably a better receiver lady. I'm bill. I think you make the argument is, you know, kind of a shift gear runner and better in the open open field. But so then you figure out why in the world is he more productive than le'veon's bent. Why is that into truth is the reason why is the beauty of team sports in the reality that when you have somebody like that? Everybody else rallies around it in elevates their plate. Like, that's why the why matters in. You're seeing it in Pittsburgh firsthand. This goes back to August when the Levy on bell saga had not really reached the crescendo that it's about to hit it four PM today. The Steelers were touting the excellent improvement from James Connor, and it wasn't just coachspeak. And it wasn't just a way to deflect lady on bell questions. It wasn't legitimate belief that this player in his second year had truly turned the corner. And if we're going to look in the Steelers from a global perspective, I mean, offensively they have so many ingredients to get it done. And Tim just said they're getting better defensively. Five straight games. Not allowing more than twenty one points and eighteen sacks over the past five games. If you wanna find a way to slow down imposing quarterbacks like, Patrick Mahomes or Tom Brady or Philip rivers in January game of consequence. You better make make them uncomfortable. We didn't see it the first time they. Played Patrick Mahomes at least not enough in that game against the chiefs. But if they play again this Steelers pass defense as a result of the pass rush. Upfront has been better defensively. Look the real deal right now. Well, it's interesting because you never know how a situation like this will play out, right? The production on the field notwithstanding. Can this divider? Can this cocker you this this Levy on belting? And I think there's no question that this is unified this team. And they've said this is who's here. He's playing well, and we're all systems go. I mean, it you saw the response of the allied. And really that's kind of the nuts and bolts of an offense is the offense of line. And when those guys rally round, you didn't show up, and we put in James Connor you saw that you heard that coming out of that locker room in this day. I think you know, that's inspired this football team. And back to Mike Tomlin. Nothing's done a great job of putting his head in those meetings and getting that defense going and they really played much better defense..

Okay. Connors starter. L Bell's not ready to play. I don't care if he's been in Miami working out James Connery's, four straight hundred. Yup. Have they not won four in a row? Correct. Is that offense of lying not playing the best football that they play. So that's my answer. Right there. That justified is not as if he lost his spot. But he's going to have to earn his way back into this offense. I mean, they're within the game game and a half out of homefield things. There's a lot of things can happen.

I'm not going to help him because not because of spite not because I don't think it's in the best interest of Pittsburgh. I would go forward with two running backs and attack the rest of the eight game schedule trying to win as many of those games as possible. They look at just one year ago, the template from New Orleans with James Connor being the Mark Ingram and with John Bell being the Alvin Kamara two guys who we saw both have. I think it was what was it? Twelve hundred yards from scrimmage combined. The two of them might have been fifteen hundred yards. I know it was the most paren- league history. Camaro was more of the receiving threat and then get out on the edges. Mark ingram. More of the hammer. Could they do something like that the problem with that is the such respect from Alvin to Ingram? And you're not going to have that even though they have a relation James Caan to L bell. L bell has told him on the most important thing. This team winning is not the most important. Thing James Caan growth is not going to be an important thing.

"Luxury vehicle of the NFL great day and it fell yesterday rivalry game. In Baltimore Steelers ravens with a lot on the line. First quarter Steelers down a field goal. Not for long big van James, Connor. That's Connor's first career touchdown reception. Steelers up seven three same scores. Second quarter Steelers on a first goal. And it's been how easy does this. Look Antonio Brown is nine touchdown of the year as many as it had all of last year sheila's up fourteen three now, hold your breath moment in Pittsburgh, second and fifteen in the fourth quarter and watch Ben go down and be landed on hard buys a dairy of Smith. And the moment that had happened. You thought it was the right shoulder. This was a terrible looking moment. But in the end, he would leave the field for only one place seems you've just got the wind knocked out of. So all is. Well, and this is how well it was. Because if you plays later he's got Jesse James for fifty one yards band through for Tim seventy two touchdowns ran for another. And the Steelers beat Joe flacco and the ravens twenty three to sixteen and however you slice it James Connor season compares favorably to Lebanon bells through eight games last year. In fact, that is current pace Khanna would finish with the second most yards from scrimmage and his season in Steelers history behind only bell in two thousand fourteen and before yesterday's game. Coach Mike Tomlin talked to our Diana Ross Zini about levian. I think this team still need Lebanon bell back with has good as Connors playing. You know, we hadn't spent a lot of time focused on it. Because it's not within our control those decisions. Beyonce. We need volunteers not hostages. So we're focused on the guys that are here and working in James is definitely in that mix. That is quite a statement, we need volunteers, not hostages, and the story got very interesting. Thanks for the reporting of this fellow here. Adam Schefter yesterday. Shefty fill in some blanks for us here for those who didn't see your report yesterday on the latest with levian. We'll greeting levian bills. Still is not in Pittsburgh. And we still don't know what he's going to be there. Or if he's going to be there at all this season. But he has put himself in a situation. Now where if the Pittsburgh Steelers decide to use their transition tag on him after the season, which they can do that transition number would fall between nine and ten million dollars, which is four and a half to five million dollars less than the franchise tag is under this season. Now, they cannot use the franchise tag on him after the season, no realistic sense. Because my understanding is it would be the quarterback franchise number which they're not gonna do. But the Steelers could use the transition tag, which would give them the right to match any offer sheet that levian bell sides with any other team if Pittsburgh. Wants to do that. But again, what is the value? A love EON bell right now is his value in hand over last year. When he basically was on the roster this year James CONNER has come in and played. Well, and frankly, they would have liked to have had Levy bell. But this Steelers offense right now is rolling with James Connor. And so that can help living on bells value on the open market..

I don't think does he think they'll let all the distraction. They won't let them get in the way they won't let them get away. I think the organization overall understands this. We have enough even without him to compete to get to the Super Bowl. James Connor is a good back Steve day. He's good enough for them to get to where they want to get to keep the Steelers from getting to the AFC championship game and beyond is not James Connor. And or not having Levy on Bill there. It will be that defense if they can't continue their level performance that they've shown recently. That's what will keep them out of is anybody being Kansas City in the AFC. Well, I mean New England's already shown that they can can. Let me say this Kansas City's. Kim cities number one enemy will be themselves. And they will be there defenses will particularly their corners in their safeties in the back end. If if Kansas City would meet the Rams teams in LA people's Kansas City would've meet the Rams in the Super Bowl. Who would you go with? I mean, you know, in you know, how I feel about Pat Mahomes feel about that whole organization. Andy read all reply, I would go with the Rams why? Because the Rams have maybe the best player in the National Football League on the defensive side of the ball.

"I thought that. I saw him kinda get bullied around a little bit by not only the Steelers offense line, but by James, Connor, and I saw him take himself out of the game a couple of times for being winded. He dropped an interception in the first half that would have been huge, deepen deepen BA. Basically, it would have been weighty Steelers territory at that point. And. James Connor just was more physical and it was it was tipped typical Steelers football, in my opinion when they play the Bengals and even when the Bengals did some good things. Plates played pretty hard. Did some nice things throughout the day. The Steelers still found a way to win. They took advantage of Bengals mistakes that were Bank or the things that the Bengals didn't do, and they want. That's essentially what what I think Bengals fans need to be resigned to this point under Marvin Lewis is that they need to be fully healthy and they need to play a near perfect or absolutely perfect game to beat the Steelers because that's. Otherwise sub two fifty to fifty winning percentage and two wins at home over the past eighteen tries a second done. And so. I don't. I don't know what else there is much to say about it. Hopefully, some of you took the positive takeaways as as I did, but this one stings a bit. This went definitely stings. And now there's going to be even though we didn't see a lot of extracurricular problems during the game. Apparently, as I said earlier, the pot in the in the broadcast here, apparently there's going to be some issues and some talk because of a fistfight after the game, which is at some point, this kind of stuff as to has to stop. So if its natty can maybe beat Kansas City and you know, take at least one of the next two against the NFC south opponents. They're still good. There's still right back in the thick of things liquor foreign to there's still on top of the earth, but this was just one you really wanted him to have. I know they wanted to have it and. In week seventeen. It's gonna be another another big showdown and essentially essentially the Bengals need to play a pretty much perfect game. It seems like to be able to beat these guys, Aaron, Aaron Blakeney. Why can't we cover tight ends? I don't have a true answer for that. I guess Mike, my. My answer to that is I would say we take a lot of stock in and we being the Bank. They don't take a lot of stock in drafting or bringing in high end safeties. But that's not necessarily true that used a second round pick on Jessie Bates last year, and he's kind of the range guy I, but what they haven't done is use a lot of high capital on a, you know, a real solid. You know, one of the exciting prospects and the draft in linebacker, whether it's a real range guy, whether it's the guy manning the middle or what have you present Browns. Okay. You know volunteers perfect is is is good when he's healthy and not doing his certain things, but. You know. This team still has it for some reason for all of the defense defense defense, Marvin built in Baltimore. He hasn't really done. He hasn't really picked the linebackers very high with the with the occasion of, you know, maybe one once or twice, and I think this team needs a solid middle linebacker. That's, you know, a team leader in athletic guy. They also need a guy that can that can run around with these tight ends and or the or they mix up their defensive looks with more athletic defensive backs out there at all times because this league is using those f. let it pass. Catching tight ends in Cincinnati, has yet to come up with that. So anyway, that's going to do it for us again. I mean.

"This was the day if you were to Cincinnati Bengals light drinker patriots said that team is in better than us. But you've got to go out on field. And so it you're leaving the division. You have Pittsburgh the Pittsburgh Steelers coming in to your home stadium. You had to win game. You have to find a place. Andy Dalton put them in the end zone to give them the lead. So now defense you need to step up, and you will fighting to not give up a fill as defense you give up a touchdown and net to me says, you know, what Ben Rothlisberger the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are still here Tomlin. He is still there, and this is the cream of the crop. And the team to beat in the AFC north until somebody does it. Well that in that game. I don't sleep on the ravens. Defensive show they had against Tennessee. Now, granted Tennessee couldn't get out of the way. This is one game. Baltimore has given up a touchdown in the second half. All they have yet to give up a touchdown. Write a second half six straight games to start the season. They have not given up a second. Touchdown. We we looked at it up with our friends at the allies sports bureau. The last time that's happened Francis. Longest streak since nineteen seventy AFL NFL merger. The last thing with the longest streak was the lions in nineteen thirty four. So that defense is good. But now the Pittsburgh Steelers go into their bye week. And what have we heard for the last few weeks about their bye week? Well, here's common levian bell. And if that's the case Ben Rothlisberger with an ice post mortem with you L to James, Connor James. I thought was was it was a bowling ball today. He was all over the place, but a great game. But his last game for us so back, but I thought he did well in his last one good job with good job with. Al-anon? We'll have some follow that what I love about. Ben Ben had a game threw for three hundred sixty nine yards and a touchdown. And I got this tweet from Doug has been silenced. His critics that were yelling retirement in the preseason. I answered I'm like, the only one talking about retirement was. Here's higher Mideast. The only one bringing up retiring nobody else is saying he should retire. That's coming from look at the end of the is going to be very interesting this week, though. Very what Wednesdays levian comes in. Because it's there by week and how they sort of acclimated into things. So that'll be something. We'll be watching all we think it's gonna work out perfectly. Yeah. Till the end of the year. I have my reasons. All right. Well, I wanna hear those are very excited about those. And that.

James Connor is a non PBR, but it's probably pretty similar. James. Connor Todd Gurley. Isaiah Crowell saquon Barkley and David Johnson and Johnson would be behind TJ Yeldan PBR Yeldham with sneak in there at number five. But Connor girly crow l. in Barclay. And then David Johnson slash TJ Yeldan. And then Joe mixon Melvin Gordon so is great to see yellow Knicks. It's funny take out Crowell and you have essentially levian bell. Right? Todd, Gurley. Saquon Barkley. David Johnson, Leonard, hornet mixing Melvin Gordon. Yeah. And you know what like that's on Nixon is is basically kind of in that class. Right for me. He was, yeah.

OMO I feel like seventy five percent of the time we hear about somebody being, you know, on a pitch count wherever it's garbage. You hear some funny. So we do are we do have time show. We do post game show. It's great experience on CBS sports HQ. We are in the middle of going through the games in one of our programs. I think it was around three o'clock eastern and I were talking about the Bengals I, I'm in the middle of saying it'd be nice if the Bengals would give Joe mixing the little bit more work and our host. Tommy chain is like waving me off because we have a scoreboard up and he's going like, basically don't go down that hole because mixing scored. Describing this narrow these happened. I'm like, well, see, it's a good thing that the Bengals are giving Joe mixing that workload. And I was gonna say about saquon Barkley that he hadn't really had a huge game yet, but he had a huge giants best quarterback throwing with both of their best quarterbacks threw a touchdown and lie might might be top twelve this week, believe it or not wide receiver. Sith our top five receivers are odle Beckham helped by the passing touchdown, but he also had eight catches for hundred thirty one and a touchdown after I think really inappropriate. Interview.

"Do you want to give your hero for the offense before we continue to talk about the news here for the offense. The easy answer is James Washington are not James watch, and it was looking at his stat line. As I said that James Connor. If I were to find. Is James corner. There's no way around it Ye. That's that's obviously who you have to take because he just went off. I mean, Rothlisberger I live. We said he had a two point seven five day at a four. I mean, what are you going away from. I mean this James, Connor anytime a running back almost has two hundred yards. From from line of scrimmage. I mean, you gotta give it to him. He played a fantastic game. So yes, it would be James card. I would be my offense of hero. Who would be your offensive? Zero. Offense zero. I'll go with well, he. Really. Offense plate. Okay today and they didn't offense of line didn't give up a sack opened up holes. Rothlisberger could maybe be that zero b, but he did end up recovering from that horrible second quarter. I can't think of one, maybe Chris Boswell as a point after he missed it and it's not offense, but that's closest I got. What do you have. Do agree that Chris possible. In fact, on Twitter, I wrote Houston, we have a Boswell problem, but so I will give it to Boswell. I think Boswell is is the one kind of source spot on the offense. Aside of football, he asked to figure that out bro. No, but actually, no, no, no, no, no, I'll take that back. It's not going to be Boswell that interception is been that interception was so bad. The gates at three touchdown hundred twelve rating. It's got to be been Rothlisberger that off that that interception was horrible. So it has to be been Rothlisberger. So Boswell, we'll get a break this week. Yeah. So let's talk divas fan. This is your bread and butter. This is right in your wheelhouse. You love talking defense. You have looking at game film and stuff of that nature. What were your thoughts on the Steelers defense, especially, we know TJ y played well the what about the inside linebackers? I thought Eljay fort Representative himself nicely covering devante Freeman out of the backfield is not an easy task. He did that several times today. I gotta say that maybe just maybe I don't think Medicaid stays though in Vince Williams is healthy. Let's see. More Eljay four on the field. What do you think? I think that would be a nice adjustment to put Eljay four d. coverage. I think that would be nice adjustment. I think you could take Boston off the field and you put Eljay fort there and tell them of defense. I think the plan was sound. I mean, I, I have to look at it all twenty two. I thought they played more to deep coverage looks. And I think Joe Haden played a well over game on Julio Jones. And you can't really tell that at times from the television camera. But you know, when Julio Jones is not have a big day, you gotta think Joe Hayden had something to do with that. I think the six fourteen is a little bit shaky on third down forty, three percent, but I think the stops that they get were key in spots and they were able to stack some of those spots. The only thing on defense. And when you get pressure, it makes it tough for the defense and they got pressure. I think they got six sacks in the game, and they also got quite a few. Quarterback kids looking at gang book. If you look at the defensive stats, seven think they got six sacks and I'm sorry, I love and kids eleven quarterback hits that. That's great amount of pressure on. I think they had if you add, the sack is probably about me just do quick math here in terms of actual pass plays the forty five. You add two, six, six, fifty one. So you're getting good a good pressure on fifty. One pass attempts with eleven hits and six sacks that seventeen plays..

"Gonna take over just short of their own thirty yard line to start. Also, an interesting game going on in Cincinnati today where the dolphins have the ball. And today might be an interesting sort of introduce yourself right on right on for the Miami Dolphins because they go through and nobody really believes it. But some eyebrows are raised and then they go into New England. And everyone went well that'll be that'll be the end of that. And it very very clearly wise. But I still am not one hundred percent. Sure. Like, I don't think the dolphins were as good as three an hour. I don't think they were as bad as they were doing the last week. And with the way Cincinnati's played at three and one. I think today will be a day that we learned some things about the dolphins. Yeah. Because this is in a turnover tight defense. Cincinnati. I think I think that they are going to pose a decent threat. This game is in Cincinnati today. And so the dolphins have a hill to climb here. Ten they do it. I always look at the first four games of the season. And we're just on the other side of that now and people have all these really rash opinions about what they've seen through the first quarter of this season. Anybody who knows football knows this. Nobody sees in his loss in the first four games. We gotta get through this hump this no October into November tumble where we get to see who is persevering we've seen it many times. Also, you can sneak into the playoffs with a lower record and make a ton of noise in January. So a lot to be learned about all these teams. Okay, James Connell. With the first score the day. He's gonna pop in from five yards out for the Steelers. What I don't know. After review is whether or not it's going to stand it's going to be closed as to whether or not the knee was down before he reached across the goal line. Also, it looked like Detroit just scored a touchdown. However, I think of flag just called it back, and it was Kenny golladay, which means it really ticks me off because I've got Kenny in bulk leagues. And so this just ruined my breakfast right here. Kenny golladay from fifty yards out. Beautiful cats in the end zone. Touchdown. No, just kidding. There's a flag may have been a hold may have been a whole. I'll say, yeah. I liked this spot for the lions today. You don't like this spot for the lines today? Producer lee. I'm sorry. No. I love the Packers. You know? I love me some Green Bay. You know, I love me all the folks up in Wisconsin. I just think this is a rough spot for Green Bay today there to one and one they're very banged up. They're not clicking. Emma lions at one in three and at home are going to be a desperate football team. And hey, Mike McCarthy give the ball to Aaron Jones. Those are my things I want to say about this football game outside of Detroit's first game against the jets where they got utterly dominated on both sides of the ball. I I really do respect with Matt Patricia has done there. Because those guys didn't quit and boy, oh boy. Field but Tariq hill game. Yup. I was that was low end around and hill took it all the way down to the thirty yard line of the Jags. However, there was a flag along the way. So not in the backfield. But something tells me this is going to be a block in the back, and this is going to. Yeah. All we gotta hold. This one's coming back, at least part of the way. And we'll redo I down so golladay and hill right out of the gate. Not really. They call it on Sammy Watkins, look when you have wideouts who are willing blockers, you love this stuff, and you really do. But that's Jalen Ramsey who is a physical corner, and he got tied up where walk ins and and on his way down. There was a lot of jersey being held. So that one goes back, and they'll be I in twenty instead of I down on the twenty. We did learn this though hill does not seem bothered by the wet grass. No, he he looks at Justice. Yeah. He. Yeah. Tyreek hill can run folks. I don't know if you've noticed this over a short time, and then F L, but he is extraordinary with the ball in his hand. So that is good news for Kansas City. But again, you know, the running game right there on that play. Just a quick outside. Play nearside Kareem hunt. Tackled with a two yard game. I think this is going to have to be a game where you really aimed to run the ball inside the tackles. Because if you're going to stretch the field left auroras should say east and west instead of going north and south you're going to have those situations where runner is going to have to get feedback under him before he can actually turn up field. Okay. I believe that touchdown. Indeed in Pittsburgh was overturned. So the review shows James Connors elbow. We're looking at the freeze frame right now. By the way, he's not down the one. He's done with a one inch line. Yeah. The knows that ball is shy of the goal line with the elbow down. So here comes third and goal from inside the one. On the nose of the ball is almost already breaking the plane. In fact, when I played center when we had situations like this just to screw with the defense. I would put my feet right next to the ball and extend it into the end zone. You know, obviously, those don't count as touchdowns in James Connor with a leaping run over the middle of the offensive formation Steelers. First blood in there, you go. Yeah. So that's what this game's going to be all about if you don't score on one play. It's okay. You'll score on the next one. We're going to see in Pittsburgh today. And now it's official. The Steelers are on the board six nothing with any PAT try on the way. And that is the first score of the game. There are many more no doubt to calm. Baker mayfield's about to take the field March will also join us next as the cardinals and forty Niners. Get ready for battle in the bay later today. It's red zone radio with Mark and rich on Fox Sports radio. Yes, sir. Brown.

"Plaid cast so far today, Jeff, and I have covered the MLB the NBA and now we move on to the NFL. So on bell obviously has been a hot topic over the. I mean, since the season started reacted because he hasn't been with the Steelers, you had the whole. I mean, stay offense of lime and not really being too happy about it. The last guys you on that as a running back. Yeah. So they weren't too happy about it. I mean, I never really understood why they had a problem with it. You shouldn't be count another pockets. And I mean, we hear these NFL players. Well, we move on with the guys that are here. Do that stay quiet block for James Connor. I mean, it's not that hard. All right now we've been bad haircuts pretty hard to look at though. Now we look at like bells doesn't show it up. Now it's gone to the point where the Steelers might end up trading him, which would make sense and the Philadelphia. Eagles according to an article will article from, I saw from SP nation. The eagles website. Part of it said that was actually from Jason lockenfora and Jason lockenfora actually been wrong about a lot of stuff. So I'm not sure how much you can look at the grain of salt. Yeah, but I mean, you look deeper into it as far as the eagles being a sleeper team it. It's not as crazy as it sounds. All right. Because I saw this and I was like, oh, there's no way that actually happens. But you look at it. Who are the eagles really paying at this point to where they can't afford a lady on Bill.

James Harrison says Le'Veon Bell should return to Pittsburgh Steelers, then fake injury to avoid games

"If you're like me in there, some of you that are, you've got levian bell on your fantasy football team, and you're just waiting. And the way this thing is set up to go is that levian Bill wants to record the twenty nineteen season as service time, which means he doesn't have to show up until November the six, twenty eight season. Yeah. Or or week ten of the season. James Harrison, his teammate today suggested he should come in November, sixteenth, and then faking injury. So he doesn't have to play a single game for the Steelers this year and still becomes an unrestricted free agent after the year. Now, here's a, here's something interesting if the Steelers trade levian bell and there are rumors that they're, they're going to trade him or at least are feeling teams up. The jets are one team that that expressed interest, they would receive a third round compensatory pick in the twenty nineteen draft the upcoming draft. Okay, if a trade him if they trade him, okay. If they just wave him, just say, were sending the franchise tag you go or ever. You want health fellow well met, you get you get a third round compensatory pick in the twenty nineteen draft if they wait until after the season and after the Super Bowl and they decide levian bell leaves, they get a competitor. Ori pick, but it's not till twenty twenty. So in order to get a pick in this upcoming draft, they've got a trade or waive him during this season. So there's incentive there actually is because if you trade 'em you're taking on another salary and other contract, James Connors been pretty effective in very effective. Yeah. Who would have thought that it would end that way? You know there's enough teams that like really could use a running back like Seattle could really use a running back. I could like I, if if you could send him there, Detroit like desperately needs a running, especially a guy but the, but the problem is the same for anybody else. Are you gonna give him? Are you gonna pay him big, right? If he's unrestricted, free it. And how much money are you willing to pay? Levian bell. I'm trying to think what is what is girls number Todd, Gurley nineteen. I think he got nineteen million and I think fifty million guaranteed is levian bell. Gonna get fifty million dollars guaranteed out there. I'm not sure that that's their anywhere else. Yeah, I would see because I think if he got traded, he'd have to prove his worth in running backs. Frankly, don't get traded that often, Eric dickers- and got traded Marshall. Faulk got traded. Even if he gets trade like you can't really trade for them. Because the situation is the same. He can still hold out to week ten and record a year of service time.

"And yeah, I like the there are certain teams, New England, Pittsburgh Baltimore, specifically on defense that even if they have turnover, they kind of get it together. But it takes them a few weeks to figure it out. They got a young secondary in Pittsburgh, they're figuring it out. I don't think going on the road against that front look, we were talking so much about the offense of line for Cleveland last year. You got two different runner back there. You've got the tyrod Taylor factor, look, I don't. I don't wanna keep talking about it, but that that's where I met James Connor range of outcomes for him. If you had to face if his James Connor Carlos Hyde who you take. I would take great claims Connor in that, but that is not an anti hide. Take Crowe. James, Connor, that's a are going to buy to prove. I mean, they write the team is here. I mean office of line. The quotes have talked about how let Bill you could miss the year. We've got James, Connor. He would have been a first round pick if you didn't get cancer. He's amazing that offensive of line is going to make sure to prove a point that James Connor can get it done. I think Conor is, you know, I've got him at fifteen or sixteen right now. I've got him pretty high. Any other thoughts in this game? You're starting you Antonio Brown. You start new juju Smith Schuster juju is I think jus a very good start. James Washington has been a little bit banged up and the the matchup is is very good for juju this and for Cleveland, we already kind of talked about Josh Gordon. What's your confidence level to play him as a wide receiver to not high for me flex flex? Okay. It's okay if you're one of those two flex leagues, Philo, but better shit. Sure. All right. Let's move on. Let's talk about another fund match at this week. Jacksonville travels to New York. Take on the giants giants or three point underdogs at home. Forty two and a half point over under. I'd personally take the under in this game. I did as well. Jacksonville, coming off the playoff season, Blake, Bortles, and company Leonard fournette. We've talked a lot about the wide receivers this week. We get to see them. Are you starting up Keelan Colin Dante. Moncrieff Mike. What decisions are you making on the offensive side of the ball for Jacksonville. So for Jacksonville for net easy, start it, Keelan Cole. I will play him. I, I think he has a chance to emerge. We've talked about the range of outcomes for Keelan coal, and when he was given his opportunity. I mean, he opened the gates and seize the date. Yeah, if you catch my drift. Oh man. The news was breaking. So so I'm I'm interested with Keelan coal Moncrieff I would give him. I'd give him a week to percolate, let them just sitting on a bench and see what's happening with that. Passing attack. Jacksonville was sixth in the league last year in points per game. If as the giants defense that was real bad. So there's opportunity here, but it's in New York. I know Jason. You've been more optimistic about the giants this season compared to last year? I would you say they're your Browns? Yeah, I think that's fair. They were thirteen last year. They were almost Brown's level as yeah. I mean, they had a top pick in the NFL draft and I expect them to be competing for a playoff position. That being said, I think the I have the Jaguars getting to the Super Bowl. This is going to be a tough match-up for the giants. That's why they're home underdogs. I'm not, you know, look saquon going to be okay, but this isn't going to be a huge game for him. He's going to be involved enough in the passing to be fine. You know, you're always going to start. Oto Beckham, but I've got them. People been like, dude, you've got Oto Beckham outside of the top twelve wide receiver. And it's like, yeah. I mean, Jalen Ramsey is set up guys down..

"Here with the team. It's game day. We're ready to go. And you're still not here. At this point quote. We got Connor. Referring to James Connor who was the second year running back. So they played his ball. Locally at Pitt and is from farther north on interstate seventy nine for those of you who are familiar with western New York, and then Pennsylvania Erie, Pennsylvania that corner up there. He's from not far away. And it's a thrill of a lifetime for him as a cancer survivor to be drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers. And now he gets start week number one against the Cleveland Browns. Bell has been when we've heard from him when we've heard from his campus agent who was making the rounds yesterday. Doing a bunch of different media interviews. Their message has been I'm not going back to play for the same amount of money. If you're going to ask me to touch the ball more than four hundred times to carry the ball to catch the ball more than four hundred times. He led the NFL in touches a year ago four hundred and six in two thousand seventeen. And he said says the end of last year. I'm not doing that again, unless you're paying me like a quarterback unless you're paying me. Commensurate with the number of times that I touch the ball. However. He has to sign his franchise tender by week eleven or he can become a free agent. So is that is that the big picture now is that what the Steelers are expecting? He could actually hold out until week eleven. Are you kidding me? That doesn't help anyone at indefinitely does not help bell the only possible way, which it does. Is that it limits the pounding obviously that he would be taking on his physical body. But it doesn't extend his career. You can't automatically make that leap that it extends his career. And you're giving up fourteen and a half million dollars. There are no guarantees take the money play football. Exempts. He's not there, and you can hear it. You can hear it with marquees pounds. You could hear it with Ramon foster who is saying that bell should be here. You can hear with Ben Rothlisberger who is already going team team team team team. And actually, I would say in some way, not the gaming the impact of bell. But minimizing it because he has to they're moving forward without him know, football's ultimate tears for one person doesn't make or break you. So you know, I'd like to say that the lineman.

"james connor" Discussed on WEEI

"I like waiting until after week three of the preseason. Because then you know, about some guys that were. Getting hurt or some position battles? But if you had your draft early on maybe you made the decision like a lot of people did to draft levian bell one or two first or second overall. But the more you waited the more you saw in fantasy drafts because I did too. One tonight and one over the weekend. We're lazy on is dropping in the first round why. Because fans are concerned. Levy on bell still has not showed up to the Pittsburgh Steelers facility. They thought he was going to be working on a similar schedule to what they saw from Levy on bell last year on bell showed up the Monday of week one. And was in shape because he had been working out on his own no problems there. Bell played in week one last season. For the Pittsburgh Steelers. Wasn't a good game. One. In fact, Livy on bell doesn't. Very rarely have a good game. One. Several seasons. He hasn't even played in game one because of suspension. Last year in game one. What did he have twenty seventeen game? One thirty two yards. Thirty two yards in game one of the season. Is that what you're supposed to expect from on Bellevue? Plays on Sunday. Well, I'll tell you this right now. I don't know flaming on belt's gonna play on Sunday. The Steelers already to start James Connor in week one. Even if Levy on bell shows up this week. Serena Williams, pro football talk with a interesting article. Earlier saying that the Steelers are ready to start James Connor. Even if bell shows up Mike Tomlin is comfortable with James, Connor. He says quote being rookie who missed a lot of time due to soft tissue injuries and lack of general readiness to a guy who's done the things we've outlined saying James the status and condition of end approach. He says quote much like I've told you guys throughout the process when he gets here is when we will start quantifying all Levy on bell type things is overall readiness. The amount of time that we have between our arrival, and our next competition, etc. We will weigh all of those things at the appropriate time right now, we are singularly focused on the guys who are here working and have been here working and building a plan around variables that we know. That's the appropriate thing. End quote. And if I'm the Steelers. I would start James Connor. Because as good as gone bell Bellas right now, he does not give you the best chance for your running game to be successful. He had thirty two yards on ten carries against the Browns in week one last year. In week two last year. Eighty seven yards on twenty seven carries. These are not good numbers for John Bell. Now did he wind up turning in a bell type season? Oh, yeah. You betcha. Starting in week four hundred and forty four yards week six one hundred seventy nine week seven hundred and thirty four throw in the receiving totals of fifty eight forty six forty to fifty seven eighty eight one oh, six seventy seven forty eight. We know Levy on all pro running back, and we all know that when maybe on bell is healthy and on the field. He is one of the best. If not the best running back in the NFL. But right now, he is not there. And for whatever reason he thinks that this gives him more leverage against the team or more leverage to try to get a contract. This is a walk here for him. He should be trying to play or maybe Levy on bell has no interest in helping the Steelers win this year. Maybe the plan for on bell is to sit out for however long. He wants this out for forfeit the game checks four fit the money because the less games he plays this year. The less chance he has of getting hurt. And if he stays healthy throughout this season. He's getting a big contract in the offseason so forfeit the money now forfeit the game checks now when he gets thirty million dollars in guarantees next year. He'll be the one laughing. In the Steelers will be the one saying man, we wish we have wavy. I'm bell last year for sixteen games. I think this is one of the most pressing issues going into the NFL season is what the heck are the Pittsburgh Steelers going to deal with Latvian bell eight five five three two three four NBC's eight five five three two three four six two two plenty of topics as we head into week one of the NFL season. Andrew luck within. Opening up about his shoulder injury. Telling the Indianapolis star that he was was scared that he might never play football again. It's a serious issue in a serious injury. And there's a lot of hype surrounding Andrew luck. And the Indianapolis Colts heading into the season. And rightfully so. Because we know how talented he is. He is. The type of player that has so much of an impact on a team that when he's not there. They are one of the worst rosters in the NFL. There are one of the worst teams in the NFL without him. And they could very well be the last place team in that division this year. But Andrew luck is the only reason that they could win football games and be competitive. Frankly, I'm picking them to finish last in that AFC south 'cause I think Houston is going to have a better year with a healthy to Shawn Watson. Jacksonville's coming off a great season. And the titans are going to be improved as well. But if Andrew looks healthy he is a special Jenner once in a generation type player eight five five three two three four NBC. It's eight five five three two three four sixty two. Now, we are. We are going to give our official division winners Super Bowl picks on Wednesday's show leading into Thursday. Because that is the last show before the start of the season. But I want to hear from you about the issues that are concerning you the most it could be about your favorite team. It could be about your favorite player. It could be.
