    Does anyone honestly think that Le'veon Bell is soft? Because he got his knee smashed on a non-contact play in camp or his foot was sprained in a pile during a preseason game? Dude carried the ball like a million times in the Big 10 and didn't miss games. Didn't miss games in high school either. Oh and by the way, he still hasn't missed an NFL game either. Preseason games don't count.

    Sure we'd all have loved to see the rookie RB get in and rush for 65 yards on 10 carries in his first preseason game, but he got hurt. I for one am not going to get bent out of shape about it. I'm hoping he can do whatever rehab is necessary, for as long as necessary and can come back and help this team's running game.

    Something tells me that the first time Bell scores a TD or rips off a big run, you all will be cheering too.
    of course we will cheer.. but you have to laugh at our situation to keep from crying.

    When the report is Bell is tough, never misses a game and as soon as he touches ground in PA he gets injured it makes you wonder. Seems like we have a knack for picking guys who never "missed a game" while passing over injury prone players who come in and have an immediate impact.

    What about Duce Bell? I'm not calling him anything negative at this point, but I am surprised no one else came with the Duce Staley call yet.

    Sure seems like we have a knack for drafting injury prone RB's!

    What will we call him if he ends up being a beast? Liberty Bell sounds cheesy?

    I'm in a good mood today... I re-watched the game and focused on the good things.. oh, and the Pirates look like they are going to finally break their 20 year drought so I'm feeling good about Pittsburgh sports at the moment.
    TINKER Bell.....thats funny......hope it is NOT true over time but for now...funny anyway .

    We will all be calling him Bell Cow before the season is over. "a cow, especially the lead cow of a herd, having a bell attached to a collar around its neck so that the herd can be located easily."

    Those nicknames need to have and apostrophe added in somewhere.

    I don't think he is fragile, just some dumb bad luck, and my concern that Tomlin pushed him too hard too fast to play with his knee injuries. In the longer run, I think we'll really like this draft choice.
    PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE TROLL

    There could definitely be some truth to this. The good thing is that while he recovers from the foot sprain, he can beef up his knees.
