Roller coaster Jets team should be on the downswing after a home win over the mighty Raiders last week. Carolina should be angry and ready to blow someone out after getting embarrassed against the Saints.
With that said, would anyone be surprised if the Jets blew out the Panthers?
No. But some of them, yes. There are still some things he needs to work on.
Setting aside that discussion though, Bell is not a starter in the NFL. As we discussed a while back, he's starting because Rivera loves to reward "effort" guys. And that's cool and all, but the plain reality is he's just not good enough.
As a backup/rotational guy? Maybe. As a starter? No.
