Demetrius Bell is having a fantastic year. It is overlooked because we are a bad football team. But the Bills may have addressed one of their biggest weakness by simply doing nothing.
Bell in his first season as a starter was erratic and not very reliable. He allowed five sacks in just 8 games played. The major problem with Bell was that he had no discipline. He was flagged six times for false starts.
A year later and he has improved drastically.
He has had two false starts in nine games. That is a big-time improvement and saves the team some stupid penalty yards.
Now onto sacks allowed. Scouts INC says that Bell has allowed just 1.25 sacks in nine games. That is big league. How big league?
Jake Long- 1.00 sacks allowed in first nine games.
Jammal Brown- 3.00 sacks allowed
Levi Brown- 5.00 sacks allowed
Bryan Bulaga- 4.50 sacks allowed
Jason Peters- 2.00 sacks allowed, but with 3 holding penalties.
Joe Thomas 3.00 sacks allowed
Bryant McKinnie 2.00 sacks allowed
Bell is performing at a level rivaling the top NFL tackles in the game. If he keeps this up, our clear weak link on the offensive line is right tackle. If that isn't the clear weakness already.
