The fact that he has less total tackles is an indicator that he has been injured. I conceed that point. But as for who is the "better" LBer, the numbers at least point to Bell.
I also contend that Bells injuries have been different injuries. Not a particular injury. This would indicate that he doesn't have a specific injury that he is prone to. But that's really another issue. We were talking about who is the best LBer.
Comparing numbers would prove out to be in favor of Bell as an overall better guy.
I find that to be the really funny. Didn't you call Hartwell a "two down lb"? So hes getting over 90 tackles while only playing on first and second downs during the series? Seems to me if thats the case the guy is much more talented then you want to say. His best year came when he wasn't playing with Lewis. I think its safe to bet that he will do even better now that hes not there...stat wise.
