Mini Camp Update

Recommended Posts

GTFO, Bell under performing? Didn't see that coming.

 

He's not underperforming.  He is what he is.  He's not very good.  It's just a damn shame that we've been relying on him to be something that he's not.

 

I still don't believe that we're going into the season with this current crop of OTs.  I really believe that there will be veteran help added at some point after teams start trimming their rosters down.

On paper, about as bad as any OT combo in the league in the last 4 years.

 

Wasn't Garry having a pretty decent preseason before he got hurt? After seen that picture of Bell looking like the slowest moving man in the NFL I think my support for him is dwindling.  

 

Maybe Williams can take that RT spot and be ok.

Garry hasn't been bad when he had to play RT, could be ok with him at that spot for a year

I've come to terms with Bell and Chandler at the OT spots. It's going to be subpar at this point even if we bring in an outcast vet.

I agree-we are talking about 3 undrafted players competing for the starting spots.  Frankly, if all three were cut, I am not sure any would be picked up. 

 

Chandler is my favorite.

Gettleman has done a pretty doggone good job of finding cheap plug and play vets at positions of need.  I have to think that if the OTs don't look ready to go that veteran help will be signed when teams start trimming down rosters.

Thanks, Jeremy.  It's great to have another person that can get some face time with the players.  Always enjoy your photos, too.

I would not be surprised if we cut Bell before the season begins and pick up someone else.

He had an amazing catch today in the end zone, and Rivera listed him as a guy that had a good day in his presser.

He looks better than last season. More confident. He just might catch on.

could be, but we're gambling in an area that i don't think we should be. it's waaayyy too important a role to be doing that. i'd feel better about chander giving it a try if we had someone reliable on the other side. we don't. we have another gamble on the other side...that either bell will be a better LT than RT or that he won't suck at RT like he did last year.

 

he says he loves his hog mollies and he leads us to believe that the trenches are important to him, but when you are looking at bell and chandler as your OTs, you don't get a sense that he really believes it. i think he does on the DL, but the OL is of a secondary concern to him, esp. the outside.

 

i like gettleman and i trust most of what he does, but when it comes to OT and what he's doing....meh. he's got to prove it there and i just don't see it happening.

 

what's funny is that so many people in here were saying, "just wait. gettleman will pick someone up to play OT. he's really not going to go with those two this year." the thing is, i think we're stuck with this little experiment. i think they are going to play it through with bell and chandler as the OTs and it's going to bite us in the ass. i would love to be wrong about it. i just have to be proven wrong and we'll have to wait until the season plays out to see who was right.
