Still Wishing for Joique Bell

Last year I was hoping the Lions would pick him up, especially aver the Bills cut him. They have a talented backfield, much more talented than ours IMO and they almost kept him as a 4th RB. This was before they traded Lynch to Seattle. I was actually hoping the Lions would draft him, or sign him as an UDFA.

So I am preseason game surfing and I caught some of the Saints game. Lo and behold there is Bell, tearing it up, reminding me of everything he is that Kevin Smith could never be. The guy has good hands, is good in blitz pick up, has some seriously good vision and balance, not to mention that he runs through tackles. All of this and he used to be a ball boy for the Lions. Our very own Wayne State product from right in the heart of the D.

Shame on you Lions for not giving this guy a look. Just pisses me off when we let good talent from our own backyard go to other teams. If this guy was given a chance (20 touches a game) I believe he could easily net 1500 to 1600 yards.
