•Left tackle Byron Bell actually had a teammate take the blame for one of the two sacks he surrendered to defensive end Chandler Jones. On the first one, Bell was doing a nice job until running back DeAngelo Williams threw a chip block that freed Jones to get inside for the sack. As the game went on, Bell got into a rhythm and did a nice job. "I felt like I learned a lesson today," Bell said. "I can’t come out slow, I’ve got to come out fast, come out on fire. We’ve got to come out fast and come out swinging early. I feel like if we do that we’ll be fine." Bell said Williams apologized on the sideline afterwards.

A WHOLE PIE!
I really wish the team, including coaches, would stop coddling Bell so much. He is a backup on just about every other team in the league.
but he's not on every other team. he's on this team...if positive motivation is what's helped him progress this far, then positive motivation is what's going to help him get to the next level.
the better he is, the better the team is.

Exactly. Why he gets so many opportunities and slaps on the wrist is beyond man, and we got other guys with actually talent screwing up one play and benched for the rest of games and seasons.

I am watching the game on my computer and just came across DWill chipping Jones. It doesn't even look like he made solid contact. Jones actually gets the first punch on Bell - Bell can only make contact on the outside of Jone's pads which gave him no leverage - Jones has full momentum, does a swim move and barreled towards the inside for the sack.
I'm not a Bell hater, but in this case DWill had nothing to do it

It was a well run rush by Patriots, they did it twice. Ninkovich beats Gary Williams outside and Chandler beats Bell inside. Chandler makes the play so Bell takes the blame. Getting beat by Ninkovich is a bigger sin in my opinion. You did see Matsko coach up Bell and I don't think Chandler Jones was successful with that move the rest of the game. He did disrupt the pocket but did not make a play later on.
Vince Wilfork was working over our interior as well. You have to wonder if the coaches felt like Turner did not need that in his life.
It was a little concerning to see Bell beaten like that but I feel like it's coachable. Chandler Jones was clearly the superior athlete which is not coachable.

Josh Norman makes great plays but shows too much emotion. Bell gets beat shows no emotion or disappointment. No doghouse.

There are a lot of o-linemen who can have good games, what separates the quality from the chaff is consistency.

Wait, he didn't already know this? He thought coming out slow was OK? He had to "learn" the "lesson" that coming out slow was bad?
