    Allen Bell

    Does anyone have any idea why he is listed as the 3rd DB?

    Hmmm, interesting. I can't say I'm overly surprised, doghouse or not.

    IMO, McDowell has better potential than Bell.

    Bell has more upside that McDowell. If you are talking raw potential, Bell is definitely our most talented back with his combination of size and speed. Didn't 33 say he has the fastest 40 on the team? Bell is struggling between the ears right now.

    Re: Allen Bell

    I think Devon has better ball skills and has great makeup speed. He's not afraid to take a risk to make a play.

    Speed/size are not the only contributors toward a good corner. If a guy is struggling between the ears, as a corner, that makes me nervous. Don't want a headcase or an over-thinker back there.

    My point is not that Bell is a poor corner, I think he's good. I just think Devon is better, especially from a potential standpoint.

    If you've ever been to a frat in Iowa City you might reconsider that statement



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Bell is our best corner. I think McDowell is second best. I am hoping Singleton makes me eat my words this year but I wouldn't be surprised to see Leonard Johnson take his starting spot

    If he's third team, I'm taking a wild guess that Bell isn't our best corner.

    Listen to Chizik's press conference from Monday and tell me if it really sounds as if Bell is third string. He is in the dog house, no doubt

    Know Gene Chizik, and know that if Allen Bell were playing like our best corner, he would be. He might have the potential to be the best, but obviously he isn't playing like it.

    If you aren't playing like the coaches want you to, by definition, you're not the best corner.

    I wish there was a place where I could put up a nominee for one of the best post of the year. Well done Sir. Well done.

    Heck it'd be great to get to the point where we just know how to get all of these great players off the field.
