Bell, Ready to Answer the..”BELL”
“I’m still going to go out there and play my heart out like I usually do,” said LeVeon Bell. “Whatever the team asks me to do I’m going to try my best to do it.”
Definition of that single statement alone..”TEAM PLAYER”! Someone that is willing to do for his team to win games. And in the National Football League, winning is what it’s all about. Not stats, not individual recognition but team accomplishments.
“I’ve been training this whole offseason for, if I don’t have to come out of the game, so I’ll still be energized, so i can still finish the 4th quarter, I don’t feel fatigued or tired. I’ve been working at that and continue to work at it in practice.”
Words of a team player that would “NEVER” walk off of the field before the game was over for his own selfish reasons. One that knows a team is a group of individuals that come together to achieve..”One Common Goal”.
Recent results of Bell’s approach produced a career high 33 carries and 204 yards rushing in Monday Night’s 27-24 win over the Tennessee Titans. Bell obtained the fourth highest rushing total in Steelers history on a night former running back-up LeGarrette Blount wasn’t given the ball.
In steps rookies Dri Archer and Josh Harris, who was promoted from the practice squad on Tuesday after the teams decision to cut Blount.
Now let’s take a look at this present backfield, and tell me it is not reminiscent of the Jerome Bettis/Willie Parker duo.
A big, elusive power back in Bell..mixed in with a smaller, elusive speed back in Archer = “A Defense’s Worst Nightmare”. Look for those two to wreak havoc on their respective downs for the remainder of the regular season and beyond. #PS4L
