    He hasn't played against pros so certainly no guarantees but everything coming out of camp indicates he is the best RB with the most talent and upside. He should be getting first team reps.

    I remember during the days leading up to the draft, one draft expert in particular stated that Bell was so misused at Michigan State, in and that he said Bell had the best natural pass catching ability he has seen in a while. And that MSU rarely used him in that roll. Well now, fast-forward to training camp and all I'm hearing is how great Bell's catching ability is. I have heard that he is a way better version of John L. Williams when it comes to catching the ball out of the backfield. I am really excited about hearing this. Cause our other RB's really can't catch the ball out of the backfield.

    I remember Dwyer making a sweet catch on the sideline...

    IMO we just refused to throw to the RB's as the 1st option

    How many plays did he have to sit out after that one catch to be able to breath again?

    Plays? I think he sat out a few games. LOL

    I am looking forward to seeing Bell with the first team. After all the good camp reports, excited to see what he will do in a game.

    Not to nitpick, but Redman had the 1st 100 yard receiving game by a Steelers' RB since Frenchy Fuqua...

    If Bell can produce the 2nd, l'll be ecstatic...
