Fred Taylor: ‘I was better than Le’Veon Bell’

Former Jacksonville Jaguars great Fred Taylor is celebrating his 41st birthday today. There was no better running back this franchise has ever had. And arguing between him and Jimmy Smith for the team’s best-ever skill player is fun exercise.

To celebrate Fred’s birthday, let’s remember the time he live-tweeted this year’s AFC Divisional playoff game and (truthfully) claimed he was a better running back Le’Veon Bell — while Bell was in the middle of a 170-yard rushing performance.

In the playoffs.

Taylor, unbeknownst to him, played with injuries his entire career. He was as complete a running back as this Jaguars franchise will ever have.

We love you, Freddie.
