I'm going with Bell on this. I know there's some hate on the kid by a few but I think he was more than serviceable. His penalty issues reduced as the season went along and his play did as well. I mean he started the majority of the games on the right side as an UDFA.

if our QB wasn't built like a terminator with the agility of a cat......he would have been carted off the field thanks to Bell.

I really don't think so, Bell did exactly what he was supposed to do more often than not, which is to stay in front of his man and allow Cam to be able to step up into the pocket. Cam had a propensity to jump in and then directly back out of the pocket. It's hard for anyone to block for a mobile quarterback. Where as you see Cam's mobility saving him from Bell's play, I see Cam's movement as something that can make it harder on lineman sometimes. That isn't to say that I dislike it.

Yeah but I really think Bell got better as the season went on, also he probably is better suited at he G, position anyways, UDRFA wasn't even suppose to sniff the starting role, and he did his best he could do, we all give Cam the benefit of the doubt, when he struggled do to the lock out, shortened minicamp and Bell didn't have the chance to go to IMG to perfect his craft, we loss 3 or 4 lineman before the season started up until week 2, Year 2, Bell will take someones spot on the line (OTAH) and we will see then.

Bell improved with each game, but Keiser also played pretty damn good. Pilares not only gave us a spark on KR but he was also pretty good at playing the gunner role and seen him make several ST tackles. i agree with CRA Hardy needs some comp, and thats why im starting to lean on the Coples train.

Cam takes off and run when there's nothing downfield or if the o-line is in trouble, it's not as if he just takes off. Kalil has said he likes this about Cam is makes it easier on them when someone gets passed them.

My vote goes to Rivera, he was a pretty good rookie too. A little shaky in the beginning but seem to accelerate as the season went on.

Keiser and Bell.

Pilaris was sort of lucky with that KO return.

He's an average returner.

25.7 yards per return is not average.

Hard to say. I've got to say those KR TD's were impressive, and Bell improved as the season progressed. The DT's were decent at best. Keiser was the biggest surprise IMO. He got an opportunity most players in his position almost never get, and he capitalized on it and earned himself a roster spot for the forseeable future, barring serious injury.

Why does everyone call the players kids? They're grown men, lol.

Bell was decent considering he was an undrafted guy who was laying carpet as he thought he dream of getting a roster spot was over.......and BOOM found himself starting. But he was bad. would have gotten a QB like Clausen murdered.
