meh. i like the guy, but he wasn't a game breaking rb. i'd much rather him play a backup role and come in to give whoever's starting a breather.

NJX, any idea on whether Tatum Bell will be traded this offseason or not?

i don't see it, but i don't see anyone giving us anything for him. getting benched because you can't hang onto the ball in key situations is not really a great way to get interest...

Tatum Bell will be a quiescent player in the offseason for the reason indicatively stated above. :shock: :?

Im just tired of seeing Tatum starting, he's not consistent enough.

Is Mike Bell ready to take the load? :?

The problem is that both bells are inconsistent.

In any case, Tatum has the speed and is getting better as a complete back... his fumbling problem can be fixed (look at tiki)

Yes fantasy.. I've signed him to a two years contract last year and I have to decide if trade him (for a 3rd round pick) or stick with him. He won me one game when he torched the Colts' defense :D

Is Tatum Bell gonna be the starter once again?

we need to trade up in the draft and get a consistent back- i like marshawn lynch he would run well with our zone blocking. we should trade tatum and at least give mike some more time as a backup i dont really see him being a full time back but i do like him. Tatum is way to inconsistent we should drop him.

Tatum Bell is the biggest waste of speed I have ever seen in my life. He has not clue how to use it. Slamming into Ashley Lelie's back when the only man left is right in front of you being blocked is not what NFL RB's do. ( I will never forget that play) Tatum is also, one of the least agile backs for a back of his speed. His speed/ agility ratio is one of the most off proportions in the league, i wouldnt be suprised if he had the most lopsided one. Tatum has awful vision, and i mean awful. He could never. never. never. find a hole in the line. Then mike bell comes in, who isnt faster, but more agile, and makes a quick cut and picks up 7 or 8. Honestly, i wish the best to tatum, but he is a waste of money.

I agree. His inconsistency/unreliability is what really kills me. I hope that speed is worth a mid-round draft pick to some other team...

i'd love a 4th for him. i think we could swindle someone out of a 2008 3rd if we're willing to sit on him until training camp injuries hit.

Yeah, I'd happily take a 4th for him right now... and use that pick to grab some help for the OL. There should be some decent prospects available at that point.

Put Tatum in a package deal with Plummer or/and Foster, or/and Lynch - we have lots to work with on the block.

How about Tatum Bell and a 5th for Thomas Jones? I would really like Thomas Jones over here.

i doubt the bears have any interest in bell. i'd trade him for a 4th or so, and give up our late third for jones, assuming that lynch and peterson are out of trade up range.

I haven't heard Micheal Turner's name being brought up in these discussions. I'd love to have this guy in Blue and Orange.

2 or 3?

1 and 3. he'll likely get the high tender, and further, even if it's a sign and trade, he'll cost at least a first.

I have stated it very clearly that a 36 year old Lynch can only do 1/2 of his job. He is one of the best on run support, and is a liability on pass protection. The new coach like to play more man on outside and put safeties in read and react zones - do you think Lynch can do this. I am sorry but he can no longer play at the speed of the position. Trade him while he still has value (Pro Bowl). When they have a 3 yard "step" on him within 15 yards of the line of scrimmage, it is time to say that the emperor has no clothes.

His leadership will be missed
His tackling will be missed
His run support will be missed

It is the right thing to do (trade him to Houston with Plummer for a higher draft pick).
