I think Belcher blows, which I've said it since 2010.
You liked him in 2009?
I think the guy plays his role well, but that he is a limited ceiling type guy that needs to do all the little things exceptionally to stick as a long term starter and hasn't really improved over 2010 and in some ways has regressed (like the rest of the team has)

he is an average starter. It's not like he is terrible, he is just limited because of his measurables. It's not like defenses need stars at every position and his is probably the least important of all in this defense.
I think he is a good "banger" but that he has reached his ceiling in that role and that a player like Rolando is a clear upgrade because of his footmall acumen and size upgrade.
