    Longtime Steelers fan here;
    Mike Tomlin was the ONLY coach who could handle AB for 9 years; he handled Bell, and is now winning without BIg Ben, and as most boneheaded Tomlin haters erroneously stated for years-COWHERS PLAYERS. He 100% should be coach of the year-which will probably enrage some of the ‘hiding in the basement’ so called Steelers fans. You know who you are.
    Thanks Mike Tomlin!
    Go Steelers!

    But the Jets told him to stay home, and last I checked, bowling is so much different than football. This should be a NON-issue. ESPN thirsty for stories

    Team told him not to show up to the hotel and you not playing on Sunday GO HOME. Let talk about what's really wrong with the Jets if Adam Gates called good plays Bell would actually have decent number or was an average coach the Jets would won a bit more game.

    First of all if you have the flu you can't even get to the kitchen, leave alone bowling.
    Second, there is or there should be a value called decorum that would keep a millionaire athlete from going bowling in public as he is ruled out with the flu.

    If he tried to play and the team tells him no, then that's on the Jets. He doesn't have to stay home especially considering he had family in town to see him play.

      bell was never that good, he was a product of the Steelers system, PERIOD....he’s just overpaid and overrated like a lot of players in the NFL....a RB’s best years will be early on because they break down quickly, that’s why the NFL doesn’t like paying them long term and Leveon is proving them right
