    Its demoralizing if you are the defense and no matter what you do a guy like bell (and blount) get 5 yards per play on you. Wont see many 80 yard runs, but could very well see some real ground production and guys that can wear down a defense which has just been completely missing for a few years now
    300 carries at 4.5 yards a pop is 1,350 yards. If he stays healthy that is very realistic. 60 catches at 9 yards a pop is 540 yards...for a grand total of 1890 yards. That would be a really nice season. My main concern about Bell isn't his talent it's his durability. I want to see him get through a full season without any major downtime.

    When he was robbed of the TD because of his helmet popping off i thought he was done for. Very encouraging that he came back the next week.

    Hopefully the foot was a freak injury

    Le'Veon is a Chocolate Diamond.



    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    Because of the line? The Eagles have had issues on and off with their offensive line. Chiefs were good last year but have had line issues in the past. There is also the issue of a running back making a line look better/worse. What may look like awful blocking can look better if a RB chooses a different hole.

    If you say so. The run blocking the first half of last season was some of the worst I have ever seen. It did get better towards the end of the season. How many yards do you want Bell to get this season to start considering him a top 5 back?

    I'll go with top 5 yardage, but that's just me.

    I hope so... I think he is going to be a good back for us but I don't see flashes that would suggest he is going to be a top 5 RB.

    1267 would have gotten him that last year. I think that is well within reach.
