Good Wednesday to you Steelers’ Fans!
While there has been total silence on the parts of both the Steelers and Le’Veon Bell in the last week, it appears Bell has forced many fans into a tizzy. His social media accounts no longer bear anything related to the Steelers. He then continued the mind games by tweeting out a “thank you fans” of sorts. You can see it right here.
Pittsburgh fans the best fans! ✊? Y’all shown so much love to meee pic.twitter.com/aseO6gzyZ9

Bell’s agent was scheduled to meet with the Steelers in Indy yesterday but it didn’t happen for some reason. Is his recent social media activity related to this? I don’t think so but it will be interesting either way.
For you NCAA Hoops fans you do not want to miss the Steel City Blitz Bracketology Podcast presented by 26shirts.com/Pittsburgh. Ian offers up a ton of info on all of the small conference tourneys as well as teams on the bubble for the NCAA Tournament.
Actual Tweet of the Day… I agree here. DWill is destined for television in some capacity.

Joe Haden’s name popped up yesterday a few times on social media and it was regarding the Steelers’ intentions with him. I have a hard time believing the Steelers keep him at his current cap hit of $11.9 million. He seemed to enjoy playing in Pittsburgh so hopefully he’s willing to work on a deal that will lower his overall cap number.
The Steelers’ Sean Davis is in some legal trouble. He is being sued by a family in Wexford for recording their son on social media. It stems from Davis’ impatience at a Chic-Fil-A and his decision to make fun of the young man working behind the counter. That led to the young man being bullied at school and so on. This could have been handled better by Davis but I’m not sure a lawsuit is necessary either.
The NFL Competition Committee is considering a change to the current defensive pass interference rule. Currently, it’s a spot foul. Where it occurs is where the ball is spotted. This has long been a huge detriment to the defense because offensive interference is just 10 yards. While the move to a 15-yard penalty for DPI is unlikely, it’s needed. Too many games are decided by by this penalty. Officials are way too subjective in calling it too. Games should not come down to QBs throwing bombs hoping to get the flag. The game already favors the offense as it is. Time to give the defense a break.
