Bell contract 2018

Recommended Posts

Bucky is a tool and that is all that needs to be said about that.

As far as if we were to possibly tag bell again next year and the rumors of it being a brokered deal by the league I look at it this way. IF we just let Bell walk next year im not sure we get anything in terms of a comp pick even if he does land the deal he hopes to. We are looking to have a few extra dollars to spend in FA and im sure we well use up that cap space on most likely a lb or cb or both. Those contracts will offset the loss of Bell and negate any compensation. If we do proceed with a transition tag and trade scenario then we can get something of value for losing him. It may be the only way we get some from of compensation.

That's just it, with Bell, you have to have an offensive line capable of providing time.  People have claimed it's not the OL that has made Bell and to some degree I do agree with that, but with Conner, the initial hole is the only place where the offensive line is making or breaking him imo.  He is doing the rest himself (sometimes he gets blocks beyond the line by WR's or TE's)

Bell is about as dangerous as it gets in the open field but can't go the distance especially last season (heavy and slower).  And the team is blocking for Connor better IMO (even AB) and that's another reason the 8 or 9 man fronts aren't as good either. Connor is the RB for this team, good story aside,  this is about style of play going with the pieces in place.  Connor is the reason the RZ has suddenly become officially Elite. No tomlin, it isn't execution and it's only partially because the OC. Connor has made the difference here.

AB could finish with 18 TD's but it might be because of Connor, does Connor win Team MVP though?

Yup. Carlos Dunlap (writer not player) was the one to point it out.
