The two things yinzers are still battling over are, 1. When is Le'Veon coming back? and 2. Is James Conner our running back?

Well if you look at the stats, Conner looks to be just like Bell, just not a jagoff. Conner's first 6 weeks of this season are just like Bell's from 2017 season.

Le'Veon Bell 2017:

Rush-Yards 134-550

Yards per rush 4.1

Receiving-Yards 30-156

Scrimmage Yards 706

Touchdowns 4

 

So there you go, Conner hasn't had as many rushing yards or attempts as Bell, but he has made more of an impact to the offensive. 

Personally, I don't give a rats behind when Bell comes back, I'm sticking with my boy James!!
