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.

What do Jerry Jones and DJ Khaled do at a Beyonce concert? ‘Mogul talk’

Have you heard of the popular musician Beyonce? She has a new album out, titled “Lemonade,” and is currently on tour. The first single from the album was called “Formation.” It dropped the day before Beyonce was scheduled to perform at halftime of Super Bowl 50. The tour she is currently on is named after the song. It’s called The Formation World Tour.

There was a show on Monday, May 9 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. That’s the $1.3 billion palace where the Dallas Cowboys play their home games. So it probably shouldn’t come as a surprise that Jerry Jones, owner of said Cowboys, was at the concert.

It probably shouldn’t be surprising to see that Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott isn’t the top favorite to win NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2016. As long as there’s a rookie quarterback starting Week 1 (Jared Goff of the Rams) in play, it could be tough.

But our friends out in the desert are badly undervaluing Elliott. According to Bovada, the over/under for Elliott’s rushing yards in 2016 is set at 900.

Yes, Bovada expects Zeke to fall short of 1,000 yards.

It’s an early prop given less than a week ago, Elliott was barely out of his crop-top tuxedo and hadn’t even welcomed Notre Dame linebacker Jaylon Smith as a teammate.

There is some logic in wondering how often he’ll touch the ball given the presence of Darren McFadden (holdover) and Alfred Morris (free-agency addition) on the roster.

Here’s what we learned during that interview:

He drinks “not that often. Maybe once or twice a week — depending. During the season, barely ever. Offseason, you get your workouts in, you do what you got to do, and then you can go have some drinks.”

His drink of choice is a “vodka water.” He also adds a “splash of cranberry.”

Beer? “That tastes weird,” Gronk said. He added that he “sometimes” drinks beer, “depending on the mood.” He then outlined a scenario that could get him to drink a beer. It involved a keg stand.
The only way this makes sense is if Tom Brady is slowly converting Gronk to his ultra-healthy diet.
