Simple question. More reflective of how well Bell has played than Otah's injury history. So. Yes or no? Your opinion.

I think you have to. With how good Bell has been, and how much of a hole DT has been, I think you are almost forced to test the waters. Don't give him away, he's a good football player-but he's also playing his way into the realm of "expendable."

A defensive tackle doesn't solve the run game. Sure our interior isn't strong right now but neither is any other level against the run. Neither of our safeties are strong safeties and our best linebackers are out. James Anderson is good, but he's no thumper.

If Bell turns out to be a definite stud, then maybe Otah gets moved. But, realistically, this talk is jumping the gun by a season. We are going to have to ride this one out with the defensive tackles we have and I'd look for us to add even more defensive line depth next year in the draft.

No.

Silly thought. Yeah trading away pieces of our OL that has doen a GREAT job for our rookie QB sounds like a good idea. Worst case scenario is Otah becomes a backup/situation player who is a BEAST until his contract is up. Otah is too young and too good.

He stays until he permanantly goes to IR or his contract is up.

Great OL depth is not "expendable".....not when he finally land our first player of Cam caliber. Just silly.

Another young DT is the last thing we need. If we had any interior pressure, we would have won last week. The lack of it allowed Brees' to convert about 6 of all those 3rd down conversions, including two crucial ones on the last drive. If you don't see the need for a DT, you aren't paying attention.

No.

I would not make a move that puts our offensive tackles one injury away from being terrible.

No, it is a long season and I would rather see the team keep depth on the oline to protect Cam. It was not that long ago that our line was in disaray.

Otah was a great player in Fox's offense. In Rivera's he isn't as useful. Bell and Otah are almost splitting reps evenly at this point.
