    I bet the Packers are in talks, they should be. It would be nice to get Bell, but not at any price.

    I don't think GB is gonna go after every RB out there. Don't we have like 6 right now?

    Exactly why is Denver trying to trade Bell?

    Bell displayed starter ability last year, and being signed as an undrafted free agent, he is very inexpensive.

    So why wouldn't Denver want him to back-up Travis Henry?

    Bell started as a RB, but was moved down the depth chart and is now a hybrid FB/RB.

    You have to wonder how bad of an offseason/camp he had to drop so low on the depth chart after having a very good rookie season.

    I think we're better off not trying to get Mike Bell...

    I am a Bronco fan as well, and Bell is a great back. He had a good season last year and for the right price, I think he would be a GREAT addition to our roster. Maybe there is something we don't know, but if he is 100% healthy and a decent price, he could easily be our #1 back.

    Apparently another undrafted rookie, Selvin Young, caught Shanahan's eye... and now he's number 2 on the depth chart. That might explain Denver wanting to trade Bell.

    The Packers should grab him now. This guy will solidify the running game.

    Sorry, but I think Mike Bell is a waste.

    You obviously don't know much about him if you truly believe that.


    If you think he's a waste, then you would HAVE to think that Jackson, Morency, and especially Wynn are a waste as well.

    Bell has as much, if not more talent then all of our backs.

    Wynn is a waste.

    I wouldn't call Jackson a waste yet. Let's see what he can do in the regular season.

    I'm pretty certain that most Denver backs are the product of the system. Outside of Terrell Davis and Clinton Portis, none of them strike me as that talented. Mike Bell included. I'd like to see Bell here but I don't know if I'm looking at him as the "savior" of our running game. I think he'd be a nice compliment back to Morency when he gets back and I think Jackson could work as the 3rd down back.

    Olandis Gary, Tatum Bell, and even Mike Anderson whom I was once high on are all products of Denver's amazing system in my opinion.

    In fact I think Clinton Portis is the only one to really have success with any other team.

    Yeah, I don't think Bell would be the "savior" of our running game, but I do think he would provide us with a much better running game. A Morency, Bell, and Jackson combo has the potential to actually be far above average, as opposed to sub-par.

    If you watch the guy, you can tell he has some talent, not just a product of the system. I'm not saying he's another LT, but I do believe he would greatly improve our running game, especially with our injury problems and the probability that injuries will continue throughout the season . .

    Needless to say, make a move and replace Wynn!!

    Bell would be a nice fit. No he would not be the savior, but he is a guy who has NFL experience and played in a ZB system and put up decent numbers. He would definatly allow Jackson to mature and Morency to fully recover by lightening their workload.

    You obviously never looked at where I'm from. All I saw last year were Denver Bronco games and boring Mike Bell.


    He's a system back and no better than Ron Dayne, Olandis Gary, etc.


    You can't say Wynn is a waste. He hasn't even played!

    Bell isn't talented, he's average, and bringing in an average RB to run alongside our other 2 or 3 average RB's is a waste.

    The system you are referring to is our system now.

    Yeah, that's what I was saying!! He works pretty good in the system, which is why it makes sense.

    And if you expect better things from Wynn then you would Bell in our system, well, you have fun with that . .

    Yes, and my point is that that system creates 'good' backs from no-names and undrafted FAs.

    My point when I say he's a waste is that it is a waste to trade anything or anyone for a guy who we already have the equivalent to on our roster, or can find on the street.

    But I will say that Denver's ZBS is a system that has been established and has a foundation close to 10 years old. Ours is in it's second year, so I don't expect quite the RB-creating juggernaut in Green Bay yet.

    The Packers blocking is not Denver's blocking. Green Bay is still a bit of an amateur at runnning the ZBS. Denver is a pro at it.

    That's how I'd compare the two.
