Seems like some of "you guys" are caught up on individual players “you” like rather than the team needs. The Team Needs are to have a player that can do the job adequately for this scheme. A player might be projected great (some make Otah sound like a Hall of Famer) BUT if he is rarely on the field then too bad. Bell might not be the best player ever, but if he can do what is only asked of him & BE ON THE FIELD for game day each weekend, then he should start over Otah.

If your boss could find someone that might not be as “Great” as YOU (think you) are” but was more dependable and cheaper....... Yeah you would be replaced too. Time to give your best with RR or you can go play in Canada. Otah will get his chance & better bring it or he will NOT be starting!

Otah hasn't been dominant since 2008, why would he automatically get the starting spot if proven to be healthy? In '09 he was distinctly average, '10 was a right off and in '11 he was essentially abused in the passing game.

Now I know Bell was pretty poor last year, but the guy was a rookie without a training camp, do you think it impossible that the guy might improve? I will state again that his final four games were significantly improved from mid season form, could that be a sign of things to come?

Otah not only has to prove he is healthy, he has to prove he is reliable, prove that he can return to '08 form. If he can't achieve any of those, he not only will be allowed to hit free agency (he probably will regardless), but our team might want to find his replacement sooner rather than later.

Not writing him off, but there is absolutely no way this guy deserves to walk back into the team if he's "healthy" like some of you want him to.
