That's a lot of money to pay someone to lie to the media. Darnold also has gotten worse, as have the Jets. Bell is a good player, but hes done nothing to make that team better. Hard for any RB to in that situation.

The thing is that Darnold's line sucks ass and that offense has so few veterans, plus Gase sucks. Having a good RB that can do it all and has your back is a big fucking deal.

Jets would be dumb to trade Bell. Gase needs to get over it and just take advantage of the fact that he's got Bell. to begin with.
I know you like Finley but odds are itíll be Burrow or Herbert there this time next year.

Bringing in any of the realistically available veteran QBs, none of whom have experience in a similar offensive system, at this point wouldn't produce a better result that just going with Chase Daniel at this point. Plus the caps hits of $16 and $21 million for say, Dalton and Mariota respectively, is just too much for a half season rental.

After seeing how conservative the playcalling was with Trubisky last week, I'm much more convinced that they'd consider making the switch to Daniel. It gives me hope for this offseason too...I don't think either Pace or Nagy is going to die on the Trubisky hill and they'll bring in real competition this offseason.

Also the Jets are morons if they deal Adams.

Well Trubisky is really not good and I don't think a Dalton or a Mariota would be much better if thrust into the offense at this point of the year.

Yup. Of all the Jets woes, the Bell signing was not the problem. It speaks to overall incompetence of your organization that paying a ton of money to a running back makes sense, but it actually did in this situation.

At least Bell's contract is very tradeable in terms of the cap impact for the Jets.

It wasn't the problem but it certainly also wasn't the answer. It speaks to the incompetence of the organization that they apparently thought he could be a difference maker on that team. They did it to appease a mouth breathing fan base. I guess if they get a haul for him, at the end of the day it may have still been worth it.

He can be a difference maker on that team, but he's not a QB so he isn't going to be able to do so himself.

Luke Falk played the majority of the snaps in 3 games this year and he might be the worst QB I've ever seen in the NFL. What is Bell supposed to do?

Of course. That's the point. It made no sense for the Jets to give him all that money with where they were as a developing team. A player like Bell needs to go to a team that's close. He should have gone to someone like the Ravens or Chiefs in the offseason. He could have been a huge difference maker somewhere like that. Still could be with KC.

Bell would actually still be an awesome fit in Baltimore's offense, even if Ingram has done an alright job there so far.

Prock and I have been saying why the signing made sense repeatedly! Why are you not listening, Jug

The point is the Jets had all this money and needed people to take it, so a very good running back made sense to help them develop their young quarterback. It wasn't ever going to put them over the top, but it was a positive in building the infrastructure around Darnold which is literally all that matters for them. The problem is they hired Adam Gase and didn't fix the OL.

This. If the best argument you have is, well they had the money to spend and they spent it not making their team better, all youre really doing is arguing for why bad teams stay bad.

But this didn't happen.

Because you're wrong. He hasn't helped Darnold. Darnold has gotten worse. Maybe they thought he would, but it hasn't happened. And that's a lot of money to pay someone to defend his QB to the media.
