Le’Veon Bell, LeGarrette Blount both see action early for Steelers

As expected, the Steelers didn’t bench Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount for Thursday’s exhibition at Philadelphia after both were cited for marijuana possession.

In fact, Bell started and Blount played on the Steelers’ first drive. And it was an especially eventful drive for Bell, who rushed three times for 11 yards while dishing out and taking a good deal of punishment. While he showed excellent power finishing out a seven-yard run, he later took a hit to the head/neck area from Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans on a passing play.

Ryans was penalized on the play, and Bell left for one snap, giving way to Blount, who rushed for five yards on his first carry. However, Bell then re-entered the contest. The Steelers’ drive would end in a punt.

    See that kids, smoke pot or get a DUI and there’s no repercussions!! Way to set an example there Tomlin.

    I would never have imagined Blount to be the weed-smokin’ type.

    Roethlisberger is missing throws like he’s already in mid-season form. Has he come withing five feet of anybody?

    They won’t be punished. Are you surprised?

    We wondered in New England why the Pats let Blount go.
    Now we see that the Dark Lord, BB, knows all!

    We look like garbage.

    Blurred vision. The Double Blunt Twins.

    The Steelers might win 2 games this year.

    Ladies and gentlemen ….. Introducing your high-flying, explosive, no-huddle 2014 Pittsburgh Steeler offense!

    Sadly they will be the same as ever under Roethlisberger, usually starting the 4th quarter down 21-3.

    Trouble makers. Poor guys. Hopefully this is it and they become good men and good players

    Seems like three team race between Cinci, Balt and Pitt. I like the bad blood. Cleveland still seems like the doormat.

    I can not see how the Steeler coach survives this season.

  13. tebowbrokesteelers says: Aug 21, 2014 9:16 PM

    Tebowed out of the playoffs years ago the steelers have o winning seasons and o playoff appearances. But many court appearances!!!! Ha

    Man the Steelers look bad!!

  15. dfwhawkguy says: Aug 21, 2014 10:06 PM

    The Steelers: Niners East? Poor man’s Niners? Criminals East! Yep, convicts a future convicts–that’s it.

    If they played for the Broncos this wouldn’t be an issue – legal in Colorado. Not saying I agree with that – but if you’re a weed smoking NFL player that’s your gig.

  17. wizardburialground says: Aug 21, 2014 10:07 PM

    It’s good to see that the Steelers have high hopes for them.

  18. shakespeare22 says: Aug 21, 2014 10:09 PM

    Long season for the Stinkers coming up.

  19. rav3nbav3n says: Aug 21, 2014 10:24 PM

    Another game where the Steelers give up some points and Roethlisberger can’t keep pace. Very typical.

  20. nflhof says: Aug 21, 2014 10:26 PM

    Are they stoned or not? That is the real ?

  21. kappy32 says: Aug 21, 2014 10:32 PM

    The Browns might actually be better than the Steelers for the first time in almost an entire generation.

  22. lennylyles says: Aug 21, 2014 10:46 PM

    A DUI and the next day you play in a game? Tomlin what are you doing?

  23. baltimoresnativeson says: Aug 21, 2014 10:48 PM

    Young athletes like to smoke weed?…….

    No , I don’t believe that.

  24. catquick says: Aug 21, 2014 10:58 PM

    well….it’s 420 somewhere!

  25. realitycheckbaby says: Aug 21, 2014 11:00 PM

    We all knew Tomlin was a joke. We all knew the team is a joke. We all knew their fans are a joke. Now, as intelligent people suspected, they’ve shown their owner and organization is a joke.

    Hope you guys go 6-10 or so. Not terrible enough to get a great pick but bad enough to be bad.

    The Doobie Brothers were playing in Philly tonight?

  27. biggs13 says: Aug 21, 2014 11:23 PM

    Ring the Bell it’s time to smoke a Blount.

  28. laxer37 says: Aug 21, 2014 11:28 PM

    Cheech and Chong looked pretty good under the circumstances.

  29. themeccalambeaufield says: Aug 21, 2014 11:49 PM

    The double blunt twins! Nice one!

    So glad the The 13x Champs Packers ended up with rookie of the year Lacy who not only gained as many yards last season rushing as the whole Pittsburgh team he also has enough brains to value his place in the NFL unlike the dope Bell.

  30. johnteedee says: Aug 22, 2014 12:07 AM

    Soooo, Cheech and Chong got to Play!

  31. coachbeck says: Aug 22, 2014 11:43 AM
