Before we get started I’d like to state that I am a Yinzer Steeler fan so I am allowed to attack them and make jokes about them. You’re not. Lets continue.
Me being an investigative journalist I decided to connect some dots on a recent Le’Veon Bell tweet. No need to thank me or anything like that, it’s my job and it’s what I was born to do.
Here are some of the reactions to my tweet about Le’Veon possibly returning to the Steelers.
What in the actual fuck is happening? I understand being mad at Le’Veon for holding out even though it is whats in his best interest. I understand LOVING James Conner because there is 0 reason not to. I do not understand not wanting Le’Veon Bell to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers this year.
I’ll address every issue and concern that I’ve heard Yinzers say throughout the season.
1. “Fuck em, we don’t need him. James Conner is better” – Whether you think James Conner is better or not makes 0 difference. You know who is getting replaced if Lev comes back? Stevan Fucking Ridley. Stevan Ridley has 30 yards on the season and fumbles every 3 touches. It can’t just be Conner all season. JAMES CONNER IS HUMAN AND WILL GET TIRED. James is on pace for 378 touches this season. In case you didn’t know thats a lot of touches. Wouldn’t it be nice if when James gets tired you have Le’Veon Bell to come into the game. Wouldn’t that be nice if you had someone that could do things like this?
2. “He’s just going to get hurt or suspended” – Whoooooo Caresssss. If Le’Veon gets hurt then you get your wish and the Steelers are back to just Conner. Don’t see an issue there. Also Le’Veon is not going to get suspended, he’s trying to get PAID. The last thing he’s going to do is get suspended. Also he’s only been in trouble once for a little weed and we blame that on LeGarrette Blount.
3. “The Rooneys and the Steelers don’t need selfish players on the team, he will cause a problem in the locker room” – How is he going to cause a problem in the locker room? Is he going to want more carries? NOPE. One of the reasons he is sitting out is because he knew the Steelers would run him into the ground in his last year. I think Lev is cool with sharing the load. Based on everything that has been said the players like Le’Veon, they just wanted him to show up.
4. “He disrespected the hard working people of this city” – Grow up Peter Pan, Count Chocula. It’s business baby. I’m sure the people of Pittsburgh aren’t going to give a shit if Le’Veon helps beat the Chiefs or Patriots in the playoffs. Everyone put their hurt feelings aside, we have work to do.
