It’s amazing of how dump most NFL players are these days. Both Steelers running backs, Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount, were arrested last night for marijuana possession…..really don’t know where to go with this. After seeing how Josh Gordon is going to be suspended for the entire season, wouldn’t NFL players make sure they have their addictions in check? Maybe not carry it around on you? No, because that would make too much sense.
I actually believed in the Steelers running game this season. The addition of Blount gave them a speedy guy and a hard hitting guy. A very good one two punch on offense. There might be a suspension, which is the last thing this team needs. The Steelers are on a very steep decline and even the littlest suspension could set the team back a few games.
The Steelers need a fully staffed roster in order to compete in their division. Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount might have just cost the team a playoff berth. It might sound silly, but when you don’t have your number 1 and number 2 running backs, it gets hard to run the football. This causes Big Ben to throw more passes and with the departure of Sanders to Denver, there aren’t many players ready to make the big play.
