Bell's resiliency didn't go unnoticed.

“Bell is the total package,” receiver Jerricho Cotchery said. “He is mentally tough, so we were confident he could come back from the fumble.”

Great response to the fumble. He definitely wanted to back up Tomlin's comments on him vs. Lacy. I thought both RBs played great with Lacy being a load to bring down but Bell a little more versatile. I don't have any reservations about Bell being our #1 back.
