Has anyone been more impressive off the field then Bell?

For all the sh*t you heard about him, guy has been as standup as you’d want anyone to be. I am rooting for him to have a big year running behind our new OL.

"Everybody talked about the offensive line and everybody talked about me not getting the ball, but, damn, Le'Veon, were you at your best?" he said. "I can literally look at myself in the eye and say, 'No. No, I wasn't.'"

In that story he compares his situation to JA. But it actually makes no sense they are totally different cases. He refused to play on a 2nd franchise tag. JA wants to tear up a deal with 2 years left. So I'm not impressed with his foolish opinions of the field. I hope he's been improving cause he looked slow last year which only compounded the issues with the line.

He was asked and he really has no choice but to say that...actions speak louder then words.

Guy played his ass off... the stretch without Sam really showed me what this guy is made of. Unfortunately I fear that he’s lost a step (or two). Though maybe he’ll prove me wrong.

He's been the model citizen. Some people chill out after getting what they feel is fair compensation. I don't blame a guy for wanting to get paid well in a CTE sport that has notoriously short careers.

The Jets paid him 30MM dollars for what he did in Pittsburgh. After this season he can hang em up and do whatever he wants to do. You aren’t going to hear a peep from Bell.

I've said it before.  Bell is not finished.  He played 10-15 pounds heavier than his optimal playing weight last season.  He was the size of his Michigan State days and NFL rookie year.

He knows it.

If Bell gets back to 225, he will show the NFL world he can still ball out.

class act off the field and on... can't hate him at all. Adams could learn a lot from him (I think anyway..)

I've said it a 100 times here.  Players standup for players and will agree with any player trying to get a new deal.  The idea that any Jet, any NFL would have a problem with another teammate, NFL player trying to get a new deal is comical at best.  

Players know how to separate the business aspect of the game from the game on the field

Have no issue with him saying i support Jamal and towing the good teammate line. You don't have to pretend his situation is yours when they are so different. A quibble perhaps, but JA is throwing a tantrum so I'm a little more trigger happy when people try to reinvent his situation.

Don't have any major issues with Bell. Thought he was a good soldier last year through that adversity but looked sluggish. Hope an improved offensive line will help him up his game significantly from last year.

Bell wore down a bit at the end of last year but he was fun to watch. Made something out of nothing many times and is a good guy to have and I especially like that he gives me no reason to loathe him

like muhammed

like sheldon

like revis

like Tru

like Jamal (I’ll warm up again if he ever matures)

Ryan doesn’t perform well but talks brashly and they love him.

Bell doesn’t perform well but talks sweetly and they love him.  

Gase performs well but communicates awkwardly and they hate him.

Jets fans care more about personality than they do performance.

We are the Super Bowl champs of off the field play....

The only steps he lost were Winters, Edoga, and Kalil. They sucked last year.

Jets fans care more about how fan-friendly a player or coach is than they do how he actually is doing his job.

Non-performers like Ryan (2011-2014) and Bell (2019) get praise and performers like Gase (2019) get vitriol.  Mets fans are like that.  Conditioned to lose, they gravitate to the players and coaches that make them feel good as opposed to those that are focused on winning.

Savvy?

Also, yet another interview where a supposedly disgruntled player was given every opportunity to undercut Adam Gase and wouldn’t do so.

The Gore signing I think shows how impressed the Jets were with Bells leadership last year.

IMO, I think Gore and the continued interest in Demaryius Thomas say more about Darnold’s leadership issues than Bell’s.

I think signing Gore was, at least in part, bit of a motivational ploy for Bell.  

Gore has had an incredibly long career because he keeps his body in the best shape possible.   Bell admittedly didn't give everything he had last season.

Not the first Jet to pull that stunt after getting paid.  But Bell was still way better than Revis and Wilk.  I anticipate Bell will correct for it in 2020.

What, exactly, am I supposed to be "impressed" by?  That Bell admitted he sucked last year?

Yeah...  very impressive.  LOL.

Never wanted Bell and still believe it was an incredibly stupid signing but I can't complain about his effort last year or anything he's done off the field. That's three conjunctions in one sentence, btw. Anyway, it's hard to imagine him on the team beyond this season, so I hope he loses the weight or does whatever he needs to do to be effective again to get another decent contract somewhere else next year. If he does, that'll help the Jets to maybe have a halfway decent offense this year.

Great observation, TS.  

In the lockerroom, Gase's approval rating is 98.1% (52 of 53 players).  The one coach who left was for a promotion, and the one player with a supposed 'issue' is looking for a premature payday.

Adam's done a fine job.  As for Bell, I like him as a person, but I'd rather have him be an awful person and a Top 5 RB again.  I want to win.  I'm not interested in a cuddly Mike Piazza poster on my wall.

The jury is still deliberating as to whether or not Gase has performed well.

I don't think it has jack**** to do with Darnold, and everything to do with Bell and Perine. Bell was a good soldier last year, but he was also out of shape. Gore's a consummate pro, and Gase will point to him as an example to Perine, who will be the backbone of the Jets RB by committee starting in 2021.

No, the jury has rendered a decision, after sitting at an abysmal 1-7 the second half turnaround to 6-2 was just about the most remarkable bit of head coaching the New York Jets have seen in their 60 year history.  A team that was supposed to go 5-11 and opened tracking to 2-14 finished at 7-9.  That's great head coaching.  That's a great performance.

Is Gase our answer, the guy to create a strong offense and lead us to the Super Bowl?  I have no idea.  But is he a proven veteran head coach, a guy proven to handle the barbs and knives of NY, a leader proven to change a team culture, a leader proven to keep a team pointed up when everything is headed down, a coach who showed creativity and flexibility when hit with a huge shortage of bodies and talent?  Absolutely.  You ask me, that's 80% of the head coaching job right there.  The other 20% we still need to see, but it's hard not to be optimistic by the rest of these achievements in only his first year.
