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."

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.

that might happen sometime down the road, right now the coaches feel he should start but also have guys like wiiliams & campbell to push him. talent is important but finding 5 guys who operate well as unit is more important IMO

Ok. Lots of guys have good days in camp.

More required considering how unequipped he was dealing with the pass rush and our franchises future under center.

Bell will have to earn it in preseason. he has to prove it.

Nothing suggests Bell is better than Campbell.

But I fully agree Campbell has to earn it from Bell. Rivera is right in rewarding Bell with the seat for now

didn't say he was, bell is the starter right now but that could change between now & the start of the regular season. it's not as if bell is getting a free pass to start with nobody on the roster to challenge him or a coaching staff intent on playing someone just because they like him.

I think we all need to see how Bell plays during the preseason now that he has a year under his belt. If he still plays like he did last year then it's likely Campbell will beat him out. But if he has shown the improvement that Rivera talks about then we need to leave the situation alone. Because like many have said he was a undrafted free agent thrown into the fire during a lockout year. I'm pulling for him because he's showing that he wants to be here and he's giving it all he got.

"Nobody's getting anything there. Byron Bell did a hell of a job for us last year," Rivera said.

He improved in all facets, as you would expect from someone in his position. He has stuff to work on, but to insinuate that he's just awful is horribly inaccurate.

I think it is horribly inaccurate to say he isn't awful in pass protection. Which is my concern in our new offense with our new QB.

I still saw no improvement there. I think he gained a better clue of what was going on....he is just too slow when asked to pass protect.

and if that wasn't awful T play last year then I don't know if awful T play exist ( and I am not grading him on being a rookie thrown into a bad spot....just NFL T play in general).
