    At this point, with the news of Dez Bryant, I do not expect Bell to be back next week ....

    Re: Le'Veon Bell back with the Steelers soon?

    Fun facts from the Post-Gazette

    The Steelers are in the midst of one of their best offensive stretches in franchise history. They are averaging 35.4 points per game during a five-game winning streak, and the 52-point outburst against Carolina on Thursday night boosted their season average to 31 points per game.

    The 177 points are the most for the Steelers in a five-game stretch in team history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. That’s one more than the previous record of 176 during a five-game stretch in the 2015 season.

    Now here’s the news Adisa Bakari, the agent for Le’Veon Bell, does not want NFL general managers to read: Bell took part in none of those 10 contests.

    That’s right. Zero.

    http://www.post-gazette.com/sports/s...s/201811090127

    Does that mean Bell will not be a great addition for the stretch drive - of course not

    But any GM has to wonder whether it might be better to invest for 2019 and beyond in an O-line and a lower priced back than bet the house on Bell

    The P-G sums up the greatest contribution Bell would bring to the 2018 Steelers at this point

    It might be prudent to have a weekly $1 million insurance policy on Conner

    Well, there are always teams with a stupid front office and too much cap space.

    Re: Le'Veon Bell back with the Steelers soon?

    Just another stupid article rehashing the same stuff, and more stupid comments below it. "Bell will never make the money up!" Idiots. It was about total payout. It was about guaranteed payout. Bell has it in his mind that he need a large guarantee against injury. That's it. Period. It's not about anything else.

    And, that's why teams are stupid if they pay it, because a player in his position at his age after 2 season-ending injuries wanting that guarantee should send massive red flags to any potential employer.

    And that's why he's not a GM.

    Said team that pays that much for a RB will be like Detroit with Sanders. But worse, having a good running back that isn't a generational talent so, the 90s lions without the highlight reels and consistent 6-10 records

    After what happened to Dez Bryant, that may have given him another reason not to return.

    True - although if he has not already factored the risk of getting injured this season into his decision whether to report and is still up in the air about it within 96 hours of the deadline this has been even less well thought through than it has appeared to be for some time

    Maybe we can get an interview of Le'Veon from the sidelines of Ohio St at Mich St today as he continues his grab for attention in the run up to Tuesday (since he has the weekend off Cam Heyward should troll him by standing on the OSU sideline )

    If Bell reports... we have a GREAT insurance policy for Conner.

    If Bell does not report... Mike Hilton should receive that $14.5 million immediately (three year extension).

    Bell will sign and his Ego will make sure! Right now he is still a big deal in the media, If he don't sign he will be forgotten about the rest of the season and his name will no longer be brought up.

    'Dutchie' was slang for a dutch stew pot. Musical youth cleaned up the lyrics because it would be inappropriate for kids to be singing about 'puff puff pass'. This was the original version of the song, which *was* about weed.

    Yes, I'm aware of that song and the story behind it. However, this is what I was referring to:

    dutchie

    a BLUNT rolled with the wrapper of a dutchmaster cigar.

    Way to break it down and drop some knowledge on us with some solid analysis, backed up with facts.

    Only on a message board can there be a simple comment about weed that gets this complicated.

    Growing up, the "Rumor" was it was about weed so we (my friends/classmates) just "rolled" w/that explanation.

    I googled 'bye Felicia, but thought the one I posted was funnier.

    You’re correct... I now see that you typed that. My bad. I missed/overlooked that when I scrolled back through, looking for “Craig.”
