    Bell Long-Term Replacements

    The two times I can remember someone having to step in for Bell are Conner and DeAngelo. In both instances, the replacements were outstanding. I'm curious if there is another? Blount wasn't I don't...

    With respect to Saxon, I won't personally put him in Munchak's hallowed level as a position coach. I think a lot of guys can have success behind this line.

    The big question to me, is how to use Bell to the maximum. To me, it is a waste to just have Bell or Conner serve as each other's backup or spell each other. I would be interested in knowing if a...

    As for Feiler and his journey, it continues to show how great Munchak is with these guys. No question Gilbert walks. And while Foster has had a nice long run with us, he's probably going to...

    Other contending teams have done this type of thing... but... I can't believe I'm saying this... the way Bud Dupree has played the past few weeks, I'd pass on this particular player.

    This agent is an idiot then, unless he gets $8m more than Gurley, or at least the amount the Steelers offered him, this season was a complete wash. He can maybe argue that it saved Bell a season's...

    Deep down, Conner can't wait for Bell to come back. And the BEST thing for him would be if the Steelers gave Bell back the job, relegating Conner to his previous role (bench). Because Conner has...

    Weird he's been on so many teams already. I may be wrong, but I always thought Hyde had the ability to be a big-time back. Put him on our offense, I think he looks like Conner.

    I agree, but it only takes one suitor.

    Every week Conner balls out too, it also makes Bell look a little less great.

    I think you're seeing how gawdawful his replacements are. To me, that means Sutton and Sensabaugh. I agree that this position is so deficient that it is hard to imagine us making a serious run.

    Who I'm assuming was responsible for Don Julio. If not him, then props to the coaches for devising a way to take him out of the game.

    There is a glimmer of optimism for me and Matakevich. I'm not saying he's going to become Zach Thomas, but I won't be surprised to see him approach double-digit tackles at the end of the game....
