Interesting Byron Bell interview posted on Panthers.com.  Bell is starting to win me over a little bit.  I like what I'm hearing out of Nate Chandler too. 

 

I think their relative lack of exposure up to this point and made fans uneasy.  After hearing where their minds are I'm feeling a lot more optimistic.

 

Thoughts?

The proof will start coming out during preseason games when live bullets start flying.  I've heard a lot of guys talk a good game.  This isn't a slam on these guys at all-- I am pulling for them and for some reason I'm thinking we're going to be ok.

 

Personally I hope they get it figured out pretty quickly (positions) just so they can start to gel as a unit.  Besides outright talent, that's the biggest factor in the success of an o-line (in my opinion).

I agree about Oline chemistry.  Might actually be another plus that it's Chandler and Bell as opposed to an off the street free agent.

I've seen Byron Bell play.  That makes me relatively unoptimistic.  Still holding out hope for Chandler.  Hoping that G-man sees Bell as nothing more than a stop gap.

As a general rule, most things aren't.

Right tackle Byron Bell said he felt like he held his own against Williams.

Do you remember the Bills game last year? Bell gave up four sacks (a panthers record) and then went on to tell the media he felt like he played a good game.

What makes me feel uneasy is Bell's play on the field and the fact that Nate Chandler was a DT just one year ago, not their lack of exposure.

Byron Bell's terrible play is what made fans uneasy.

At this point most everybody is justifiably optimistic about Chandler so we're just hoping for a steal there at LT, an improved interior line, an at least the status quo from Bell that we've had at RT.
