Nice Story About Byron Bell

Bell seems like a chill guy. I'm glad he's been proving all the haters on this board wrong.

His ass is lucky he didn't play Thursday night.

Glad to know he's a humble, down to earth guy though.

I knew our offensive line would look bad without him playing Sunday, but I didn't imagine it would look so horrid. The man deserves a lot more credit than he gets around here. The team needs him and people are going to have to get over the fact that we rely on an undrafted player because it really doesn't matter.

Williams played pretty good in his absence, it was Gross who got destroyed vs the Giants. Garry didn't give up a sack, hit, or hurry in replacement this week. I realize there is more to it but it wasn't the lack of Bell that made the line look bad.

You're implying that those are the only stats that matter. Where's the stat that shows how many times he failed to engage his assignment and allowed defensive lineman to bat down Cam's passes for free?

It's great to see a professional athlete go and reach out to kids. Seen it a many of times when a kid calls to a player for a autograph and they look the other way and pay them no mind.

Awesome story KP... very glad to hear he's still grounded. I like Bell as a person, and hope he continues to improve as a player. I'm sure if you sent your mail to the front office at BofA, it would get through to him, just make sure to address it to him, care of the Panthers.

We emailed Bell a Video message from my niece thanking him. It was really cute he tried to post it on his twitter but it doesn't work for us.

Byron seems like a very nice down to earth person, I remember crying about the story on his brother dying in a fire and him being unable to save him. These are the types of things that kids fans for life.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
