Byron Bell

I don't start many topics on here (and for good reason) but I wanted to make a quick shoutout to Byron Bell. He's looked excellent so far this season.

A brightspot for sure.

I've never seen a O Linemen improve as much as he has. His footwork and everything.

One of my favorite Bell moments was when he got absolutely pissed at the refs in the Saints game for calling a holding on him. It showed fire, as well as confidence.

Love the story, love how well he's playing.

If he keeps improving he'll be a future pro bowler.

He's played outstanding....there were several times in yesterday's game he just completely mauled his man. Definitely a bright spot and a great story.

When I was on the sidelines prior to the Giants game, Bell walked by me in sweats. That dude has some of the biggest thighs and ass I have ever seen. It's no wonder he is 360 lbs. he definitely has a wide base and has looked really good. Great pick up.

He is an absolute beast. He just man handles guys. And I love how he is always there to stick up for his teammates in altercations.

last year he played like a rookie OT. except for a few elite prospects that come out of the draft ready to go (and very few of them come from the first round) they all look like they are wearing roller skates. after the first year or two they can usually improve.

i wasn't too worried about him. makes me less upset about losing otah.

i don't care where we get good players, as long as we get them.

    • Elbows too pointy. Would not bang.
    • On the surface this team seems greatly improved but in reality we added a geriatric at DE and SS. Our LT is bad enough that the Vikings thought getting Remmers in return was an upgrade, and our greatly improved offense includes a rookie RB who dominated the 5th best college conference and a hybrid RB/WR who isn't good enough to stick at either position. That being said, I'm hopeful it works out.
    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard or 2-guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history, and that has to really suck as a hardcore fan.
