Anyone else notice....

I don't see it. Bell got a decent push on him and maintained position between him and Cam. Hardy was never within three feet of Cam
The second Bell dipped his left shoulder, he was beaten. Especially against a speedy pass-rusher. Zod's right, that was a sack, or at minimum, a pass disruption.
I guess my main question is, did anyone expect Bell to be able to handle LT duties? I certainly didn't. Factoring in the Kraken makes it look a whole lot worse for him there.
EDIT: I'm also keeping in mind, this is one play out of a whole bunch at practice. Every athlete has one or two of those...

More importantly Cam didn't try to run or hold the ball. He felt the pressure stepped up and delivered a pass on the money to Edwards. On that play the offense clearly won.

regardless of the sack edward's made a catch he probably would not have made a few years ago which is the main point.

bell has hardy beat...only because there's no real effort from hardy to get to newton.
in a real game, bell lost the moment his left shoulder dipped and he wasn't square. the only reason he was able to push hardy is because hardy wasn't trying. if he was, hardy would have easily turned bell and disrupted the play.

Not a game situation, so it's like trying to judge speed from a heat, where all the athlete has to do is go fast enough to make the final.
I liked seeing Edwards make that catch. I'm hearing that he's looking like a legit WR. He may make the team on actual merit this year.

Great pass, great catch...if he could have got to Cam he would have.
