Hope springs eternal at this time of year…but I look for Bell to do big things. If he and Blount give us a legit running threat, the receiver thing will work itself out.

I don't know if it's "amazing", but fantasy people would rank that in the top 3 backs for this year's fantasy draft:

For a 3 year period, he was a good back. Yeah, the wheels fell off. But he was exciting. Bell may turn out to be better, but he hasn't been better to this point. They are different types of runners, using different skill sets. But if a healthy Willie Parker was on this year's team, it wouldn't be a foregone conclusion that Bell would get the nod. It would be a battle in camp.

Tell me, would you be disappointed if Bell "only" got 1700 total yards this year?

Hell yea man, im there with you on Bell. Those ppl that doubt he's as good as advertised will be eating their words, this kid is the real deal.

It depends I guess. Are we 8-8 again? Are 1000 of those yards after the catch? Stats don't mean a whole heck of a lot to me.

It all depends on the O-line.

NFL.com story about the RBs division of labor.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap200...ision-of-labor

Mike Tomlin isn't giving any hints on how he plans to deploy his backfield options this season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers coach told NFL Media's Lindsay Rhodes and Brian Baldinger on Friday that he plans to let the training camp and preseason play of Le'Veon Bell, LeGarrette Blount and Dri Archer determine a pecking order in 2014.


"Le'Veon Bell has had a great offseason," Tomlin said on Friday's edition of NFL Total Access. "He's really shown that he is excited about taking the next step in terms of work that he's done thus far, particularly from a conditioning standpoint.

"LeGarrette Blount has a definite football playing personality, one that not only is evident on the field but in the locker room. Think he's going to be positive to our efforts."

Tomlin also expressed his wish to get the ball in the hands of third-round pick Dri Archer. Tomlin called Archer a "speed guy" who will play both running back and wide receiver.

"I'm excited about letting these guys sort themselves out from a division of labor standpoint," Tomlin said. "I know that they're all committed to being a significant component to what we do."

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette observed last month that the Steelers "mixed and matched" Bell and Blount during minicamp, a possible sign Blount could have a bigger role than originally anticipated.

Still, Bell's workload and growth last season tells us he'll be The Man in Pittsburgh. We imagine a 75/20/5 touch split for Bell, Blount and Archer in 2014. "
