I've got an idea for when Bell comes back

    So with Bell coming back soon (maybe) I have an answer on how to use him and James Conner. Move Bell out to a receiver and keep Conner at running back. Imagine Big Ben having all of those options on the field. We already know that Bell is a great receiver and then we would have Brown, JuJu and Bell outside along with Conner in the backfield and I haven't even mentioned McDonald or James at tight end. The Steelers could run so many trick plays with those guys on the field.

    Have Bell play DB too. Run the wheels off him.

    I'm thinking TTF is running ads in Boy's Life and Humpty Dumpty for this website. ;)

    I say leave Bell in the locker room where no one has to look at him during games. Give him a blunt and a few Jet Ski magazines, and he will also be happy. Win, win for everyone!

    I'd say use him only at reciever and make him your third reciever.. Use him at RB only to give Conner a breather

    I’m not sure what to expect. It’s been 10 months since his played meaningful football, and we also have a new coordinator. I can’t see him hitting the ground running at a pro bowl level.

    As long as Conner is healthy he is the starter in my book.

    Bell being so great in the slot is made up by former meathead NFL players in the media. You get a CB lined up against bell instead of a CJ mosley... bell would get locked down

    If, and it's a big if, Bell comes back and is up to speed I don't see how you could stop the Steelers. Defense stays at the level their playing or slightly better. We will be a threat to score every possession. We have a re-match from 1979 and beat the Rams again in the SB!!

    I'm completely torn on Bell. My young son looked up to him in so many ways, running around the front yard, wanting me to buy his jersey for him and me not wanting to because I saw a distraction early on. I never did buy him that jersey and now my son understands why. For a player to sit out more than half a season and pass on over 9M is no way to explain how moronic for how an average person lives.

    This team could be unstoppable with him and at the same time they could implode.
