    Who do you think will have a better 2109? Since "better" is subjective we will make it based on stats compared to 2018 for Brown and 2017 for Bell.

    I am voting Brown because Bell has been out of football for a while and his unique style isn't that unique anymore. Plus the Jets line isn't great.

    I think Bell because he will have the ball in his hands much more than AB. Unless the Raiders find a way to fix their o-line Carr won't have time to get the ball to AB, I think by week 3 AB starts whining about not getting the ball enough. My observation comes from last year, look at Cooper as a Raider then as a Cowboy, huge difference.

    Carr's stats weren't bad, he will get the ball to AB. Bell is going to have a difficult time, I could be wrong but the Jets don't have top talent at receiver. The Jets also have a poor o-line and a QB that a lot believe is overrated and struggled with pressure. I think Bell is going to get a lot of touches but he is going to face a lot of 8 and 9 guys in the box. I say Brown will have a good season Bell will struggle, simple as that.

    My opinion:
    Brown will be lucky to get 1000 yards & Bell will be on injured reserve by the end of the season.
    Brown will blame Ben & the Steelers for being doubled & tripled teamed all day long. Bell will be rapping about how he reset the RB market for much less money.

    Let it go people. Who cares? It's like asking who will have a better year Brady or Rodgers. They ain't Steelers. Thank the Lord

    JuJu will have a better year than AB & If Conner holds up, he will have a better year than Bell. If the Defense can have a good year, we can make waves.

    Not overly worried about what happens to this pair but my thoughts fwiw

    Brown will do fine with the Raiders Gruden will find a way to get him the ball, they are already making changes to the Oline and presumably will use some high picks here. Carr is a decent QB, better than he is given credit for, but his protection last year was a joke. I expect them to be better, maybe 6-10 or 7-9 and brown to get 1000 yards and 10 touchdowns

    Bell will be run in to the ground by the Jets. I don’t think the year away will effect him, give him 3-4 games and he will be back to himself. A year off is no more harmful than missing a season through injury and lots of players come back from that and do fine. He will be their number 1 weapon and will probably be facing a stacked box a lot of the time. He might struggle to put up the numbers he got with the Steelers, and he probably won’t care because he has his

    Bell won't have a line to run behind and it will cost him. I wouldn't be shocked if he gets hurt early. Brown will do what he does. Carr isn't great, but he's good enough to get him the ball.

    Brown will have a better year. Bell has 3 mediocre seasons left in his career IMO.

    I’m agreeing with your logic. Plus some.

    Brown got more money and will work hard to earn it.

    Bell got enough to be a total screw up.

    This actually will probably happen. I expect both to have down years by their standards.

    I can agree with that. Brown is already working with Derek carr trying to build that chemistry. Leveon is promoting his album.

    Bell struggles at the start then puts up decent numbers with a ton of touches.

    Brown says and does all the right things in training camp and then gets smacked in game 2 and goes off the rails again, last seen running down the side of the freeway wearing a housecoat with orange hair.
