Dear Le'Veon Bell: It is obvious from your recent ill-advised behavior that you have no clue about what being a Pittsburgh Steeler means.

Granted, you came from Michigan State, but when you were blessed with being chosen as a Pittsburgh Steeler, you had no clue about what came with that choice. Much is expected of you both on and off the field.

You do not just represent the team; you represent this ultimate football town, Pittsburgh! It has the best fans in football, a legacy that will always be the benchmark for what a pro football team is all about and expectations for all members of the team.

It is not about a single player. It is about a team!

Better players than you have gone before. All Pittsburgh Steeler fans know who they are.

When you are chosen to play for this team, it is not just about your skills. It is about who you are as a man.

You need to get your head on straight and not ruin this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to prove you have the right stuff to represent Pittsburgh.

Georgia McMarlin
