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.

In a year in which most teams have very little salary cap space, followed by a year in which the Salary Cap may decrease by $20 million or more, the answer is a solid "Yes".

Let's be fair here, a lot of posters that hated Whitlock all of the sudden think his stupid jokes and schtick are funny because he teamed up with Clay Travis and started expressing political opinions they agree with, that is literally all that changed.

But yeah, let's blame it all on Bell.

Nevermind that Adam Gase is the worst head coach in football.
Dan Quinn, who is lightyears ahead of Gase in terms of NFL success, was fired this season while Gase still has a job.

But sure, the blame lies with the players, not the shitty owner, front office and coaching staff.

I mean, what the fuck, people?

It's funny how Adam Gase is still around because he road Peyton Mannings coat tails for a bit.

Why would anyone think Bell would be a threat to the locker room? You think the Chiefs are gonna keep him around long enough to disrupt the team? If he so much as uses the wrong pronoun, they're gonna cut his ass, because they have nothing invested in him.

Now, if Mahomes suddenly goes full Wayne Brady-gonna-choke-a-bitch in the locker room, THEN they have a problem.

Bell has every reason in the world to be on his best behavior.

He does if he wants a big contract next year. So even if he's all about the Benjamins, he's gotta earn them THIS season.

I can work around that. How does the paint hold up when supermodels throw themselves onto the hood at stop lights?

What was he supposed to do when Gase basically decided he didn't want him there from the minute they acquired him?

What was he supposed to do when Gase traded away Jamal Adams and instead of piling on like everybody else, Bell supported Gase's decision, only for Gase to continue to treat him like a dog?

I don't know about you but when somebody is trying to force feed me a spoonful of shit, I'm sure as hell not going to grin and eat so that everybody won't think I'm "selfish".

It's also not like Gase doing shit that way is or was working or honestly has ever worked. At some point enough is enough.

And let's not forget that Gase traded Jay Ajayi to the Eagles, who won the Super Bowl in 2017 and also allowed Damien Williams to walk after the 2017 season.

Acting like Adam Gase is some kind of NFL Talent Guru couldn't be further from the truth.

Andy Reid loves DeSean Jackson like a son. He said he didn't want DeSean in kc because he worried about ruining chemistry. Didn't even bother to look at Antonio brown. Yet he and veach have had leveon in their sights for years. I trust these guys did plenty of homework if they wanted leveon this badly.

My only problem with signing Bell is that the guy held out for a year because he felt like he was worth so much. Just don't like selfish people like that when he's already making millions. Tells me he's not a team player and he's all about himself. Period. I'll trust Veach and Reid of course and it will be interesting to watch.

No doubt he's an incredible talent. At least at one point.
