I dont think so man. Whoever is the better option between Bell and Campell will get the start. Its not like the Panthers owe Bell a spot

It's my understanding that Campell is mentally challenged to some degree, so I think it's unlikely that he will start over Bell this season. It might take him longer than usual to learn the OT position, and that's probably why the Raiders were willing to part with him for Goody.

Ok, there is no way that Gross is changing positions. He is not a better RT than LT, that is crazy talk. He is a finesse guy not a power guy.

Bell will be the starter unless he gets hurt.

Bell was thrown into an impossible situation and improved as the year went, I like the line as is.

People keep saying he improved...but what supports that?

Campbell will start IMO. Ron Rivera is tied to one man. Newton. Nothing suggest Bell would take a big enough step to handle pass rushers this year. Bell IMO showed what Otah lacked...and did well for the situation (meaning he survived). Since Bell is a Rivera guy, Ron will allow him to compete for the job which he should lose. Wouldn't be right for Ron not to let him compete.

But IMO Bell has G written on him.

This sort of wild speculation always seems to pop up during TC based on small amounts of second hand information about how one paticular player is playing better than expected.

Not saying move Gross...but there is a likely chance we continue to get away from the power run game. We started getting away from it last year. Cam likes those read option looks. I expect more shotgun this year

Go back and rewatch, he was much improved and even Rivera has mentioned that.

I can find quotes of Ron praising our DTs, backup LBs, defending Capt and our Ss.

What specifically did Bell improve on? I just didnt see....wasn't handling pass rushers.

don't quite understand why some seem to think that bell can't improve & become a solid rt. one thing that is clear to me is that riveria will bring in people to push fringe starters to improve& if they don't he will replace them

He can improve...

Some of it is just a skill set issue. I'd like to seem him working to be a G.

not sure why so many are content with someone so bad at pass protection should be out there with Cam

Funny quote today from Ron Rivera on DE Greg Hardy: "He came in in a great shape. He didn't ride his motorcycle, which was huge for us."
