Otah poos all over Bell.

Otah has been on Rivera's bad side IMO....wants Jeff to show some heart while giving Bell a pat on the back with this move.

It was in OTAs updates/pics.... I think they also said Otah had some reps with the 1st team.

This is all just so Rivera can prove a point and people buy what he is selling. There is no way Bell starts if Otah is healthy come September.

He should be starting over Otah in the first ota back. It's Bell's job to lose. I think Otah will quickly take over but he has to show something first.

There's nothing to speculate. Rivera said openly that Otah had to earn his spot.

Byron was our starting RT last season. Why does it surprise everyone that it's Bell's spot to lose?

This is simply a dog and pony show. If Pray is healthy he starts the competition won't even be close.

I think the fact that Otah looks like an All Pro when on the field and Bell looks in over his head might have something to do with it.....

But Rivera is just doing his status quo thing. Otah will start. Just like there was no doubt Cam would start despite the competition that was portrayed

Byron had a few games where he looked distinctly average and on occasion decent, so considering most players make improvements from their rookie season he may be a completely different player coming into 2012. That said, he was our worst performing OLine player in both the run and passing game and picked up by far the most penalties.

It should be noted though that Otah wasn't any better in pass protection.

However over the last four games Bell gave up 5 pressures, 2 hits and 0 sacks, with only 2 penalties, showing marked improvement from the mid part of his season.

All pro is pushing it. He looks very good in the run game, but is no better at pass blocking than Bell.

That's certainly not true, Otah just can't say healthy.
