We just signed former Lions DT Marcus Bell, anything you could tell me about him?

04-13-2007, 06:16 PM
well he got cut because he didnt want to work all that hard for marinelli i believe but overall he's a decent player nothing to blow u away

hes a solid rotational DT, addresses one of your needs so you should be happy about this signing

Anything about his strength and weaknesses? A good run defender I'm assuming?

Good but not great player, poor attitude.

Does he clog running lanes? Take on double teams? Able to control two gap responsibilites?

Hes a big guy who will take up space, so he can clog a lane. I have no idea if he would be able to handle the two gap, but i would think so.

can he push back a center or guard (pass rushing) so that teams dont double osi/strahan?

If you don't like Rod Marinelli, why would you sign on to play for Tom Coughlin?

yea i was kinda surprised since these coaches have similar morals when it comes to hard work

04-14-2007, 06:07 PM
That is a really good question, b/c you know that its hitler then Coughlin, so who knows why he signed with them!!

mayb he didnt get any other offers

It's really hard to say exactly what Bell's big strengths or weaknesses were, because honestly I can barely remember noticing him at all. He's pretty big and takes up space, I guess, but I can't think of any great plays he ever made here. He was the 4th DT here, and on this team if you can't get higher than #4 on the depth chart, you're pretty bad.
