Le’Veon Bell: It’s hard to be a hero in a city that paints you as a villain

The Steelers say Le’Veon Bell will play in Pittsburgh in 2018, but he sounds like he doesn’t think he’s getting a fair shake there.

Bell tweeted on Thursday afternoon that he thinks he’s been villainized in Pittsburgh.

“It’s so hard to be a hero in a city that paints you out to be the villain,” Bell wrote.

And you lose an hour. People forget that. Denver, you lose an hour, so you’re getting in four in the morning, you’re exhausted, the air is thin, the airport takes forever and if they play well, they’re going to win.”

Rivers added, “I always have a trigger on Denver games. At some point [during the games, I’m thinking], ‘F— it — pull them.’ Whenever you go there, you start the game out and by the third quarter, you make a determination — ‘You know what? Pull them, if you’re not winning.’ And you would never do that in any other game.'”

Bellamy bounced around the league a bit before landing with the Bears in 2014. He’s played in 47 games over the last three seasons and has 62 catches for 882 yards and four touchdowns.

Meredith has visited the Ravens, Colts and Saints, but has not signed an offer sheet with anyone. The Bears have added wide receivers Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel in free agency.

“You guys are supposed to be tired,” Korver again tells Malone.

Malone laughs. He is very tired, having not settled into bed until about 3:30 a.m. earlier that morning. But it’s no secret that during the helter-skelter NBA calendar, every team knows exactly when it’s battling far more than its opponent, just as every opponent knows exactly when it has a significant edge, as the Cavaliers believed they had entering this March 3 evening. That’s also why this particular game qualified as one of our 54 schedule alert games for 2017-18 — games in which, according to our formula, one team faces a steep competitive disadvantage due to the schedule.
