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.

Uhhhh no.

He's not not wrong. He's not right. He's not close to being right. Don't give him any credit whatsoever for having a right idea at any point in this article. Because it's just nothing but fucking wrong.

But they wouldn't cut Bell if he becomes a distraction?

Don't forget Marcus Peters, too.

THE RISK IS REAL

Sure. You got me. There is risk to signing Leveon Bell.

There is also risk to me getting out of bed in the morning. Something bad might happen to me. A piano might fall on my head. A weasel could gnaw off my nutsack. And to deny there isn't risk is intellectually dishonest.

Why does everyone think bell ruined the locker room in Pittsburgh? Didn't they see what AB did? Just because leveon held out a season for more long term security means he was the problem there? I just don't think he was causing locker room strife as much as he may have went along with the shit AB was doing.

Whitlock has been so irrelevant for so long that he's left writing anything he can to stir up attention. This article is dumb, but it's no dumber than what he typically writes.

Backfire? On this team? Yeah, I'm sure HB, Frank, Pat, Travis, EB, Reid, et al. will let him act a fool and tear the locker room apart. Great point.

The key to recovery is to make your next four minutes awesome. Here are pictures of Salma Hayek, Patrick Mahomes II, a bacon cheeseburger, and an anniversary edition Lamborghini Countach to get you off to a good start.

Whew, NSFW, Rain Man. I'm a little flush here. Of course, the original Countach is my favorite car of all time.

Edit: Now, I'm wondering if you should do a poll. Which of those four images in the sexiest? Selma might come in third, at best.

I wonder if I can find a rant to support such a point.

You used to at least be able to count on Whitlock's articles being somewhat well-written.

I'd feel guilty putting people in a position where they'd have to choose. That would be cruel.

And I'm a big fan of the Countach. If I ever got an enormous windfall, that would be in my garage. It would have to be really enormous, though, given the maintenance costs.

Salma is on my mind because I watched a movie last night where she was one of the stars. Every time she came onscreen, I forgot what the movie was about.

it's a piece of shit. It leaks windshield wiper doesn't work. You have to manually put a lock on the shift to not throw it in reverse.
