Theyíre the head of Bad Boy Football. Canít nobody hold them down. They love giving nasty boys one more chance. They believe in mo players no problems. Reid and Veach are close like Starsky and Hutch and the KC offense hypnotizes me.

Why am I quoting BIG and Puff and analogizing them to the leaders of the defending Super Bowl champions?

Thursday, the Chiefs signed bad boy running back LeíVeon Bell to a one-year contract, and it makes me nervous.

You see, Bell, to me, isnít bad meaning good, heís bad meaning bad. Heís a locker-room cancer. Heís poison. In pursuit of cash, he bulldozed his way out of an ideal situation in Pittsburgh, where on the field he meshed perfectly with Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown. Bell landed in New York, where he flamed out with the Jets after playing in just 19 games. Owing him an additional $6 million, the Jets cut Bell on Tuesday rather than deal with his bad attitude.

In football, you canít have a problem with bad boys. The game is best played by them. But you have to pick the right bad boys, the ones who absolutely love the game. Thatís my gripe with LeíVeon. I donít think he loves the game. He loves the financial windfall the game provides him because heís good at it.

Letís take Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill. He can be classified as a bad boy. Heís had some serious off-the-field issues. You know what motivates him to evolve and do better? His love of the game.

Remember when Andy Reid, as head coach of the Eagles, rescued Michael Vick from a federal prison and turned him back into a playmaker? It worked because Mike Vick loves football. Thatís also the reason Vick turned into a tremendous leader in the Philly locker room.

Bad boys can turn good. One of my all-time favorite people and players is Ravens legend Ray Lewis. Early in his career, Ray was involved in a murder investigation. He pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge of obstructing justice. Ray loved the game and God. He wanted to be regarded as one of the all-time, all-time greats. He leaned into his faith and became arguably the greatest leader in NFL history. Heís right there with Tom Brady in terms of leadership.

I donít have a problem with bad boys. In some respects, I was one myself years ago.

My problem is with unrepentant bad boys. This is why Iím skeptical of my Chiefs tying any part of their success to LeíVeon Bell.

Bell is the kind of running back Suge Knight and Death Row Records would sign. Bell is Tupac Shakur. Dear mama, heís thug4life. He has ambitions as a ridah. Heís all eyez on me. Bell ainít got no muddafreakin friends. Grab your Glock when you see Bell rock. Heís hit Ďem up.

For non-Tupac fans, let me translate what I just said. Bell is going to bring dysfunction to the Chiefs. Heís troublesome. Heís going to make Andy Reid and Brett Veach sing Hail Mary.

I hope Iím wrong. Maybe Bell will be so embarrassed by his New York flameout and so highly motivated to make Adam Gase picture him rolling that heíll be on his best behavior for the remainder of this season.

Clear enough for ya?

Why you Jets look mad?

Yíall supposed to be happy Iím free!

Oh, I forgot. Adam Gase.

That coach had a lot to say when I was in his offense.

My gut says this ends with Andy Reid and LeíVeon Bell riding down the Las Vegas Strip and Reid pretending he had nothing to do with end of LeíVeonís career.

Why would anybody agree with this article?

I get that people don't like Bell but put Bell aside for a couple of minutes.

Whitlock took MULTIPLE shots at Reid and Veach.

You know, the guys that orchestrated the ONLY SUPER BOWL some of us have ever seen!

What did they do to deserve anything in that article?

Like I said before, fuck Jason Whitlock.

Any time a fan complains about a millionaire demanding their worth from a billionaire and calling them greedy is either jealous, ignorant, racist or all of the above.

Pittsburgh front office treats players like trash stop being a moron.
Steven Nelson thinks Pittsburgh treats its players great!

Not only is Bell a bad boy but he's a bad boy that's already been paid. He doesn't give a shit about anything, he just wants an easy Super Bowl win. If things get tough he will quit. We didn't really need a new RB, we needed better blockers. When our shitty blocking makes things tough on Bell he will blame someone and cause problems.

I doubt Bell makes it to the end of the season on the Chiefs.
Lmao Marcellus and JakeF being fucking idiots together.

I think I'd rather be tortured like Theon Greyjoy than read another Whitlock column. No wonder he's relegated himself to becoming Clay Travis' sidekick. That was an embarrassing effort.

FYI, Bell played under the Franchise Tag in 2017 and put up phenomenal numbers.

Correct.

In 15 games, he finished with just shy of 2000 yards from scrimmage.

The Steelers rewarded him with the franchise tag for a 2nd time.

It probably helps to think of Whitlock like a washed up porn starlet doing increasingly degrading scenes to keep getting bookings.

In our analogy, he appears to have reached the "playing watersports with a group of homeless Lativan heroin addicts filmed on VHS-C," portion of his career.

Absolute slap in the face. He crushes it on their one year "convince us we should lock you up long term", and they just say k thanks do that again?

I dont understand the side against Bell holding out there. He already took the risk and played on tge tag once, killed it, and they still dont pony up?

Screw that. Pittsburgh should have paid him what he absolutely earned.

As for his lack of production in NY, Gase resented the fact he was there to begin with, and barely utilized Bell in the passing game. Gase is a dumpster fire, and the New York Jets directly reflect that.

Can't wait to see what he does in KC, and that Jets game just became must see TV.

Should be interesting.
100% Agree !!

I remember the trip of my dreams flying from Vancouver to KC to see the Steelers vs. Chiefs at Arrowhead. Went to Jack Stacks with my wife and daughter and lo and behold...sitting at the table right beside us was LaVeon Bell, DeAngelo Williams, and the entire offensive line eating and drinking like kings (Saturday night) Bell just sat there not saying much at all, everyone else were pretty happy and having a good time. Of course, some Steeler fans recognized the group, and on at least four occasions young kids and other super Steeler fans asked Bell for an autograph. He flat out refused and gave such attitude...leaving the fans sad and confused. I think DeAngelo Williams picked up on what might have been a major issue amongst Steeler nation and went into full on damage control...over compensating for Bellís snubs by signing everything in sight and agreeing to pictures. Even my daughter tought Bell was being a real douce. It was a real eye opener of entitlement.
