Sunday was a bad day for Le’Veon Bell
Le’Veon Bell is still sitting out two weeks into the season, and at this point is hoping to be traded to a team that will pay him what the Steelers won’t. This weekend of NFL games didn’t help his case to be paid like a franchise player because it further diminished the value of running backs in the modern NFL.
Many successful teams, including the Steelers, are doing just fine with unknown running backs, including the Jags, who beat the Patriots without Leonard Fournette. In today’s salary cap NFL, it doesn’t make sense to pay a running back like Bell wants to get paid because they are a replaceable part.
Browns should continue to sit Baker
Yesterday, the Browns failed to get their first win in over a year with a gut wrenching loss to the Saints in New Orleans, and today Browns fans and many in the media are calling for Cleveland to end the Tyrod Taylor era and start rookie Baker Mayfield.
Colin thinks fans are overreacting because the Browns are on the path to respectability with a solid defense and an 0-1-1 record against two playoff teams to start the season. Most would agree their start is as good as they could have hoped through two weeks. He believes Cleveland should stick to their plan and continue to sit Baker, much like the Chiefs did with Patrick Mahomes, who is now lighting up the NFL.
