Re: Free Agency: Free Agent Series: Should the Saints re-sign Mike Bell?

I say too early to tell. Bell was huge at the beginning of the season, but tailed off dramatically toward the end. I like Bell a lot because of his toughness and his ability to make defenders pay by lowering a shoulder into them. However, there are a couple of guys that I would like to see get more playing time (Hamilton and Hill). Also, if Toby Gerhart is available in the 3rd round, I say snatch this guy up. If that happens, then it is a possibility that Bell won't be back next year.

ALSO THANK YOU MODS !!! The board was downright weird this morning; I thought I had contracted a virus spyware or whatever, but couldn't imagine where from. Even tried to restore back to yesterday. THANKS FOR THE REPAIR.[/QUOTE]

I was wondering about that, all morning I had spyware pop-up messages from my anti-virus software. Glad to know what that was now.

Bell was good at the start of the season. It was partially because of him, that I was kicking ass in fantasy every week, then he just kind of fell off the radar. If he can get his act together and stay consistant, I say keep him.

Too early to tell .. he sure got chewed out by SP during the SB for not wearing the right cleats on that play where he slipped. Did you see him come back in the game? errrrr, NO!

Let's see who we draft. Maybe we could sign him to a one-year deal nonetheless with the likely uncapped year.

Re: Free Agency: Free Agent Series: Should the Saints re-sign Mike Bell?

I have a gut feeling we have seen the last of Mike Bell in a Saints uniform. He did get off to a great start and then really fell off the radar. My gut instinct tells me Hamilton is the guy for that 3rd spot. A lot however may depend on what the Saints do with Bush. I don't think the Saints want to use their draft to rebuild half the backfield. We will see...

I saw that! Payton was pissed! After that, no more MB.

mike bell twisted his knee at one point this season where he sat for a couple of weeks,then returned with less carries while rebuilding his confidence in cutting. then i think in the tampa bay earlier game he tweaked the knee after the game was really a blow out.he missed more time. this is just what i thinked happened no research.

Re: Free Agency: Free Agent Series: Should the Saints re-sign Mike Bell?

Im up in the air about Bell now.. i mean not to be ungrateful or anything because he was a TRUE BEAST for us throughout the season but imo it'll have to come down to how much money he want and who we're willing to dump to keep him, after we get rid of grant, and a few other scrubs i'll have a better thought process on it, but for now, my thought on him being resigned is up in the air..
I didn't buy his Jersey because i felt he'd be one and done with us, and now that we have the Rings i don't see us making any strong efforts to keep stragglers.... He's been injury prone all season, he's getting old and his production started to lag toward the grind of the end of the season..
Perhaps if the coaches use him less throughout the regular season and get more out of him toward the end i might feel less reluctant to see him back in the black and gold.
