  1. Those guys were not wrong about last year. He looked totally different when he had that extra weight on. He improved...........and nobody saw him improving this much did they?? Did they????? Cloppbeast did - read his comments below that disagree with Bronco Billy...I went to the joint practice on Wednesday between the Bills and Steelers, paying particular attention to the backs. I don't call myself a professional scout, but I could at least see that Bell has better burst and speed. Certainly Blount has many other attributes contributing to his ability, but I definitely question you at labeling Bell a 'plodder' in this conversation. Each of these runners has their own abilities, but if either one of them is a 'plodder', it's Blount.
  2. Bell would not set a precedent if he improved his rookie efficiency. Isn't a little unfair to compare Bell's rookie ypc to the veteran Blount's? Why? How would you compare their running abilities if not by using what they have done to date in their NFL careers?And please take note that I gave Bell a 10% increase in his production on the ground, as well adding an increase over the average numbers of carries for PIT, and gave the top two RBs a generous portion. I thought I was being pretty optimistic given that. Is that not enough in your opinion? I don't have an issue with your projections, only how you compared the two players. You could give Bell a 20% increase but it wouldn't change your tone in contrasting these two running backs. A veteran who has played behind much better offensive lines should have a higher ypc than a rookie. There's better ways to compare players, especially when one of them only has 1 season of numbers for use.

Special is not an adjective that I would use the describe his ability. And again, comparing how RBs perform against NFL Ds seems like a reasonable method to gage their relative abilities, but if you don't believe so then I'm not sure we're going to ever agree. I don't care how great a guy looks, I care about production. Blount has done it with multiple teams even when he started the season as an after thought. Bell was not productive and could not generate running room on his own from what I've seen. If you want to simply dismiss that based upon how they look in practice it's your prerogative. NICE CALL BRONCO BILLY...PLODDER AND NOT SPECIAL - HUH, YOU DONT SAY.......... Nice call Cloppbeast!!!
  3. I wonder if Bloom is watching the game? This guys hands are horrible and he can't run the full route tree....
  4. Looking good! I am heavily invested in him this year!!! Talent!!!
  5. EBF - Le'Veon Bell looks like a very talented and explosive do everything running back. I don't care if you write a 10,000 word dissertation on the subject - you missed on him and were wrong. Predicting running back success doesn't sound like your forte (Matt Forte)...
  6. Nothing too crazy, following his blocks well more than anything. Still he's done well with his few carries. He looks great! Big/fast and north and south!!!!
  7. This dude is about to explode - no problem having him as a TE1 this year!!
  8. Austin Seferian-Jenkins making 'eye-popping plays with regularity' Buccaneers rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins only has four preseason catches, but in camp he "has made eye-popping plays with regularity," reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. The 6-5, 262-pounder, however, remains behind Brandon Myers on the depth chart. This guy is gonna be a stud. He is a gamechanger!
