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.

Uh, check Andy Reid's career record with RBs. The odds of your prediction coming true are piss poor.

Youíve got JakeF in your corner. That guy hasnít been wrong in the last - 18 seconds - so seems like youíre on some solid ground here.

the rebirth of McCoy was such a success:-)
I don't see Bell doing any better.

Shady as a Chief, using stats from the games he actually played was the most efficient RB on the roster last season. Look it up.

But Andy had McCoy back in 2009-2012, where Lesean ran for nearly 4,000 yds, about a 4.5yds/carry avg., 30 TDs, another 200 or so receptions, and another 8 receiving TDs.

You don't know what you're talking about.

This is an accurate statement about the knowledge of most Chiefís fans about pretty much any subject.

The guy that played a pretty important role at an important time that helped us, ultimately, reach the Super Bowl? I didn't love the guy, but he was certainly successful when we needed him. 465 yards for the good guys while averaging 4.6 per carry were absolutely valuable. His fumbles, though, ended his time in KC.

McCoy is 3 years older and has nearly double the number of career touches as Bell.

You need to try harder.

Jamaal Charles
Charcandrick West
Spencer Ware
Kareem Hunt
Damien Williams

All these guys became at least functional RBs in Andy's system since his arrival in 2013. Most of those guys were nothing better than average, but Andy managed to get 1,000 yd seasons from just about all of them, and two became NFL rushing champs.

And those are just the RBs he had in KC. Can you think of any good-great PHI RBs from Andy's tenure?

Yeah, I think just about the last thing we need to worry about is whether Andy will be able to figure out how to get a good performance out of Le'Veon Bell, former rushing champion.

Can't be serious. Leveon has a hell of a lot less mileage, he's young, and unlike mccoy the Chiefs picked leveon up because they've wanted him for a long time. As in... They seemed ready to give him a huge contract even with all of our needs. They didn't sign him simply because he was cheap and available.

When Andy Reid wants an offense guy this badly, you know he has something big in mind for the kid.

They've been after him since at least last year.
