Buddy I know what an insult is but I'll drop it. And Steeler fans aren't speaking for me in our discussion. I never said anything about knee injuries or Bellichick. I didn't say you were concerned about a pitch count, why would you be, you said he didnt want to be run into the ground as a reason he didn't want to be traded, implying that his new team would do that to him. Never would have happened, even if they gave him the same work load as the Steelers, it wouldn't amount to running him into the ground in 6 games. Bell said he wanted to avoid a heavy workload by sitting out some games, mission accomplished. It's irrefutable that he'll have less wear and tear if he signs now then if he played from day 1. Obviously Bell would prefer not to play any snaps on the tag, I never argued he did. But Bell said in the beginning of the year he wanted to cut his workload down, no one thought he meant sitting out the whole season, everyone has been under the assumption he would sign before the deadline. We have a week to find out if he will. I personally think he was only planning on missing a game or two until the line spoke out against him, he was reportedly very upset they did that.
